When we thought we had seen all the most adorable little houses in the world, this wonderful A-shaped cabin appears. Photographer Alla Ponomareva and her husband, Garrett, built this shelter for their guests around your home in Missoula, Montana. The builder of small houses, Derek "Deek" Diedricksen, who was responsible for the design of the original plans, had already done the same version for about 1000 euros, but Alla managed to reduce the price by including reusable materials, such as window frames, logs or planks.

Alla and Garrett, DIY experts, threw themselves headlong with the cottage project, and they managed to finish it in just three weeks. In her blog, Alla comments that what she likes most is that one of the walls can be raised in the hottest months, giving it an extra charm. But this wall is also transparent, which allows the entry of natural light even when closed. And if you wonder about insects, Alla says there are hardly any mosquitoes during the summer!

But in the end, Alla only hopes that her friends can "enjoy watching the stars inside the cabin", while they drink a little of Garrett's homemade beer. Sounds good, doesn't it?

The couple chose to place transparent walls so that their guests felt asleep in the middle of the forest.

The roof-wall is foldable, allowing it to open completely. Thus, it is possible to ventilate in a matter of seconds and lower to the interior temperature in the hottest months.

Alla and Garrett have thought of all the details so that their guests feel at home. They have even placed a fire and kitchen utensils so they can prepare a snack.

Inside the cabin there are two single beds that can be put together to create a double bed. There is no bathroom or running water, so guests have to use an outside toilet and a portable solar shower, Curbed reports.
