The Kama Cabin

A romantic tiny-home, nestled in a hidden forest.
The Kama (Love) Cabin is a double-story tiny-home, specialy designed for a beautiful spot at the heart of the Sima Kade valley - a hidden ridge that offers incredible views of our cliffs and the Magalies mountain. The ridge is capped by a red-ivory tree and looks over a small river-side forest. The cabin features a window-wall that slides out of sight, opening the house up to the bush-forest. The living room flows out to the fire-boma, with an outside bath positioned on the edge looking onto the cliffs. The wood burning fireplace and warm wooden interior makes for cosy winters.
Built during the first lock-down, the Kama Cabin is the latest addition to Sima Kade. An experiment in prefabricated building, we constructed the majority of the structure off-site and towed it into place, taking about 2 months to complete. The cabin has the feel of a sail boat, with everything between the bedroom, kitchen and living area perfectly proportioned to save space. The Cabin is designed for couples, but also has a couch/bed in the downstairs living/kitchen room. We always wanted to build on this site, but are also glad not to have rushed, taking time to understand how the location changes through the different seasons.
