Jacob Witzling Turns 1979 Ford Pick-Up Truck into Tiny Travelling Cabin

Jacob Witzling is a 2nd grade teacher who also handcrafts unique wooden cabins, mostly for his friends and family. He built his first cabin for just $800 using scraps restored from construction sites and upcycled wood. To date, he has built five one-of-a-kind wooden cabins, and is currently travelling around the US with his partner Sara Underwood in his newest creation – a truck cabin.   

Jacob Witzling said;

I get my design inspiration from cabins of the past, from the world of fantasy both in movies and books, and in that childlike part of my imagination that I’m continually trying to preserve.

Built on a 1979 Ford F-250, this truck cabin has a 40-square-foot base and a 20-square-foot sleeping loft. It features a unique shingled roof, designed to withstand high winds and give it a distinctive fairytale-inspired look. Inside the sitting and kitchen area lie side by side, with sleeping area on the loft. There are pull-out windows on both sides of the roof to enjoy views of the surrounding areas.

Nowadays, the duo is planning to build a ‘Cabinland’ in the Pacific Northwest on a stunning property with unobstructed views of the mountains. They will be building around six unique vacation cabins connected by a trail system throughout the property.
