Wee House on the Prairie


The idea of cashing out and moving to a cabin in the woods is getting more and more appealing each day. And if you feel like leaving behind all your possessions, you’re probably looking for something minimalist…

Allow us to introduce Weehouse, a St. Paul-based firm that’s managed to turn modular pre-fab housing into a genuinely attractive option. The houses come fully assembled and furnished, and the flat rate means you know exactly how much you’ll pay. Prices range from $65,000 to $255,000 for a quadruple-sized three-bedroom unit.

They also do custom work under the name Alchemy, but you can find carpenters anywhere. Finding a good cabin is quite a bit harder.
