If you are truly looking to get away from it all this cosy transportable cabin could be the answer.

Easily transportable via its own trailer, the ‘Escape Vista’ can be used as a mini office, an Airbnb rental or by travellers keen to see the world from the comfort of their own mini home. And while the homes may be tiny, the price certainly isn’t, with manufacturer’s suggested retail price being $46,600 (£32,199).

Thermopane windows allow occupants to capture the sounds of nature while open or enjoy complete tranquillity when closed. And windows can be frosted to allow for privacy while also letting light in

Although it is perfect for those looking to switch off from the rest of the world, techies can take advantage of USB outlets and a unique pop-up TV. 

The cabins are designed to remain comfortable even during harsh weather conditions, with energy efficient high-tech insulation minimising cold temperatures and air conditioning available for summer.

The US-based company says that early offers could see cabins being sold for the introductory price of $39,900 (£27,572).

‘We call them ‘Personal Homes’ because, like the personal computer and personal desk assistant, these are truly personal spaces designed to be adaptable to each person’s individual needs,’ says Escape Homes founder, Dan Dobrowolski. 

Kelly Davis, the Escape Homes award winning architect and designer, said: ‘Escape Vista is open, flowing, both very private but completely connected to nature. It is specifically designed to let you escape the stresses that invade all of our lives.’

While the homes may be tiny, the price certainly isn't, with a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $46,600 (£32,199)

    The factory picture shows that they’re made out of flakeboard. Very unhealthy, the glue contains formaldehyde. That’s what gave all the Katrina homeless people (who were housed in FEMA trailers) nosebleeds and assorted health problems.

    Love the vent over that gas stove.

    Look at it another way. A modular home system. One, with the living room and kitchen, another for your master bedroom with full bath and a third with two guest bedrooms and a central bath. Connect all three, park on a nice piece of land in the mountains, remove the wheels and skirt them or leave them on for a better tax rate. Total, about $150,000 to $160,000 for a nice house, without the heavy property taxes.

    When is the craze for the largest mini-homes going to start?

    46k for a shed outfitted with water and lights. People are crazy.

    Basically a very expensive travel trailer, only it doesn’t travel nearly as well.

    It looks like an old fashioned trolley car. If the glass is frosted and the lights are on, you can’t see outside but those outside can see your outlines. Something to think about.
