Welcome to Friday Cabins, a weekly Cabins Etc email where we talk trends, shout out relevant links from around the web, and most poignantly, round up the latest cabin content from Field Mag, this very newsletter’s patron saint.
But first, how’d you dig Deep Dive 01: A-frames? Boy did that SOB take this very writer a lot long to compile than anticipated lol. There’s just so much interesting stuff to cover when it comes to funky triangle cabins! So much I had to leave out. But don’t worry fellow A-frame enthusiasts, we’ll be revisiting this topic from time to time in future Deep Dive issues(monthly?).

This week in the world of cabins the ongoing theme of prefabrication continues to dominate (see below, for further proof). It’s enticing. I mean, how can you not get drawn in by a sleek little cabin with an affordable price tag that delivers direct to your future plot of land? We’ll dive in deeper on prefabs soon. For now, our pal Robert Abasolo (aka Robuilt) has a lot to say about why you shut down those shipping container dreams right now at the very least. Give his channel a follow—it’s gold.
(Yes, we do have a really insightful interview with Robuilt dropping soon. Current and future Airbnb/STR owners take note. It’s gonna be a real banger.)
I’m also really obsessing over interiors lately. Anyone else? This 1970s Topanga Canyon gem, this wood stove zone, and this bookshelf room divider got added to my personal SAVED folder on IG this week. Never not moodboarding for my own future cabin I’ll one day build on land I don’t yet own… totally normal, right?
