These Small Wooden Cabins Look Like Houses from Fantasy Books

Dan Pauly of The Rustic Way leads his team in creating these amazing fantasy-themed cabins.


When I saw these cute tiny wood cabins by The Rustic Way, my mind went back to the fairy tale books I used to enjoy when I was yet a child.

They look fantastic and by that I mean they look something straight from the fantasy books. I can personally recall some children’s book artists that have drawn houses similar to the styles of these cabins.

So to see the images below is really like a dream come true for me. It’s seeing the fictional pages come alive!

The Rustic Way is a company managed by owner Dan Pauly. They specialize in creating custom garden sheds, guest cottages, playhouses, and saunas, among others. They mostly use reclaimed wood for their projects and the results are just totally eye-catching.

Check out the photos here:

Of course, it helps that Dan Pauly is very passionate about “old wood and antiques,” according to their official website. Furthermore, the site specifically mentions that Dan is “rooted in a heritage of 4 generations of wood-working artisans” meaning this is really a guy who knows how to work with wood and clearly loves every bit of it.

Although each of these cabins have their distinct designs…

… Their common factor is that they all have slanted roofs, cute window boxes, and bent chimneys.
