Nido is a 96-square-foot building by Robin Falck, who used mostly recycled materials and spent around $10,500 plus labor.

This 96-square-foot lakeside micro cabin in Finland was designed and built by Robin Falck. The retreat was built small enough so that it wouldn’t need a permit, which is required for buildings in Finland that are 96-128 square feet, depending on the area.

The cabin, called ‘Nido‘, has a ground floor living area, kitchen and bathroom, and a 50-square-foot loft above for sleeping and storage. A tall window lets in plenty of natural light, and an adjacent deck provides a place to relax and enjoy the beautiful view. Falck used recycled materials for most of the construction and estimates that it cost around $10,500 plus labor. Click through to see photos of the micro cabin:
