the Esk'et Spyu7

offgrid camping cabin

The Exterior

The Esk’et Spyu7 is an 8×10 cabin with a gambrel roof, for off-grid recreational use, with carved & artistic features. 

The Interior

It fits a queen size bed in the sleeping loft, along with a hidden storage cubby.

The Spyu7 features Robert’s 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 & cozy 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 love the intricate details in the feathers, birds, leaves & trees.

We’ve pulled the outside woodsy design into the inside. An inset tree (with LED lights behind it) highlights the angled white cabinetry, and a tree carving frames the trim on the custom shaped loft window. 


Robert’s love of design & carving are combined with meaning & story in the Esk’et Spyu7.

Gather special materials over time, much like a bird’s nest, for a space that is artsy & inviting. A place to relax, get inspired & dream big.

The Esk’et Spyu7 is a camping cabin on wheels- a space with a bright & forward-thinking outlook!
