Area 241 / Mike Basich


Located on 40 acres near Truckee, CA, former pro snowboarder Mike Basich’s stone cabin — dubbed Area 241 — measures just 225 square feet but is super cosy with stunning views, large glass panels, a hot tub and even a chair lift – which Basich also constructed himself. The tiny house took him five years to build, 2.5 years alone for all the stonework, which he estimates comprised 175 tons of rock. He has no interior plumbing but a stone shower that serves as a seat during the day, and a little wood-fired oven. He sleeps in a loft. All the Douglas Fir timber needed was collected on his own land. Water comes from two creeks on the property and power from a few solar panels — via Dornob
