Welcome to Cabins Etc…

A newsletter for cabin dreamers and lovers of leisure design

Written by Graham Hiemstra, design journalist and founding editor of Field Mag, the award winning digital publication for lovers of good design and the great outdoors.


Over the past six years Field Mag has published over 300 articles documenting the world’s best prefab cabin kits, tiny houses, A-Frames, surf shacks, country cottages, and cabin rentals. Now, we’re taking all that knowledge and building on it in a new newsletter for fellow cabin lovers.

Every Friday all subscribers will receive a Friday Cabins newsletter roundup up the most innovative and exciting cabin articles we’ve seen that. A little *trend watch* if you will.

Every third Wednesday of the month, generous & kind paying subscribers (aka “Certified Cabin Lover” tier subs) will receive one specially themed deep dive newsletter full of exclusive content along the lines of:

  • Deep dives on iconic cabin styles + new design trends

  • How to find land and build your own cabin

  • Pro Tips from superstar Airbnb hosts

  • Curated rental lists and exclusive real estate listings

  • Cabin community building via issue comment section and @cabins.etc

  • Exclusive giveaways like free cabin plans from Den worth $$ :)

Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. Support our independent efforts and help us inspire you, without ugly adverts getting in the way.
