The cabin was constructed on the mainland by PRT Industries who specialize in custom-made portable repurposed products to suit a range of domestic, industrial, and rural uses.
It will be barged across to the island and installed on 8 footings. The guttering, awnings, most of deck, balustrades and steps will be assembled/installed onsite as they won't fit on the regular barge already assembled and a dedicated barge will cost an arm, a leg and a kidney.
I designed the cabin to be minimalistic to the max and an off-grid sustainable unit with only a nominal footprint. Most everything is either recycled or recyclable - or both.
