What is a LifeCraft cabin?

Put simply it’s a timber framed cabin that can be located in a variety of settings and used for a wide range of purposes including as a permanent dwelling. The design is loosely based on vehicles from the early 20th century and incorporates construction methods used in early timber framed cars, buses and aero-planes.

The cabins may be sited in almost any location, on trailers, in gardens, on the side of a mountain or even afloat on a raft. They have a wide range of uses as studios, workshops, classrooms, guesthouses or tiny homes.

The multi-purpose Lifecraft Cabins are:

  • Low cost, low tech but high quality
  • Sustainable and low-carbon in their construction methods and materials
  • Constructed with no hazardous material or industrial practices, using time tested, traditional carpentry and joinery techniques.

The prototype is currently under construction. Build report and photos can be found on the News page.
