the Esk'et Spyu7
offgrid camping cabin
The Esk’et Spyu7 is an 8×10 cabin with a gambrel roof, for off-grid recreational use, with custom carved features.
It fits a queen size bed in the sleeping loft, along with a hidden storage cubby.
The Spyu7 features angled custom cabinetry, with a hidden sliding ladder leading up to the loft. The bottom lounge area serves a dual purpose of lounge in the day, extra bed in the night. It’s an inviting spot, with a built-in book nook, and views out the bay window.
The carved table and 2 stools can be tucked to the side as needed. The LED lights are powered by solar, and the tiny woodstove is perfect for getting cozy on a cooler night, and also offers a small cooking surface. The cabin is insulated with spray foam insulation. The water is provided through a simple gravity-fed system.

Carvings & Angled Cabinetry
The Esk’et Spyu7’s carvings reflect the name of the cabin: spyu7 = bird
We’ve pulled the outside woodsy design into the inside. An inset tree (LED lights behind it) highlights the angled white cabinetry, and a tree carving frames the trim on the custom shaped loft window.
