When You Peek Inside This Tiny Cabin You’ll Want To Stay Forever

They might look like something from the set of a fantasy-novel-turned-movie, but these amazing rustic houses are very, very real. They’re made by Dan Pauly, a fourth generation wood artisan working out of his home in Minnesota.

Pauly’s great-grandfather came to the United States in the late 1800s, and is responsible for building many of Minnesota’s dramatic old barns, some of which are still standing. Dan is following in his footsteps, but adding some charm and whimsy to his own work. Check out the photos of his amazing cabins below.

All of Pauly’s structures have his signature roof and chimney.

He builds suanas, sheds, and outhouses, all with the same fantasy novel charm.

Set against the Minnesota landscape,these structures look gorgeous, no matter what the season.

The interiors are stunning too: This would make a great hunting cabin.

“As I uncover an old barn or shed,” Paul wrote, “I realize that it could be the same lumber that my great-grandfather used more than 100 years ago… Until you have dismantled an old barn, you can’t imagine the painstaking effort it took from Old-World craftsmen to erect it. They were each a work of art… This wood reflects our natural heritage, and has a much richer and more attractive patina and grain than modern wood.”

Pauly also creates luxury garden sheds, many of which can go for upwards of $14,000.

For this kind of amazing craftsmanship, the cost is absolute justified.

How cool would it be to have one of these in your yard?
