AN Irish couple have told how they moved into a cabin in a bid to save thousands on a mortgage.
Alan O’Brien and Laurie O’Donnell constructed a one-bedroom pad in Laurie’s parents garden.
The cosy eco-friendly cabin was constructed in just three days.
The pair have documented their cabin life on Instagram, posting under @thecabin_at_no.29.
They said: “Here is a little walk through video of the cabin to give everyone an idea of what the space is like inside.”
The exterior of the cabin has a gorgeous dusky blue paint job with white windows and door.
On entering, the hallway has a fold out table and a large mirror.
Off the hallway it the bathroom with shower, sink and toilet.
The kitchen has bright white units and a sleek black countertop.
Laurie admitted she had “too many ideas” for the kitchen.
She said: “The window in the kitchen was an extra that I added, I felt it would open up the room a bit more.
“I’ve gone for a white, black and gold theme.
“The space isn’t huge so I wanted bright colours to open up the room.”
The living area has a plush corner sofa and TV area.
Plants, flowers and warm lamps create a homely atmosphere.
The bedroom has a large double bed, large wardrobe, dressing table and a desk area.
When living in a tiny house, the couple stressed how storage is “crucial”.
They said: “In the bedroom we opted for Pax wardrobes with plenty of storage space.
“The wardrobes are 200cm in height, giving space to stand them up while also leaving a gap between the ceiling and the top of the wardrobe.
“This space is handy for stacking clothes and storage baskets.”
They said that storage drawers are a “great idea” and make the most of space.
They said: “The Pax wardrobe collection come with loads of accessories to choose from.
“Plus designing your own layout is fun!
“There are storage drawers under the bed which tuck nicely in under, saving space.
“They are an extra that you can add to any design, again from IKEA.”

Laurie and Alan designed the perfect chill out space outside with plants and chairs.
They added solar powered lights across the windows at the front of the cabin.
