This Unique Home is Our Most Popular House Tour EVER

House tours continue to be one of our most popular ,well-loved features on Apartment Therapy. And with good reason! Who doesn’t love getting an inside look at drool-worthy interiors and unique, one-of-kind homes? But there’s one home that our readers and the internet at large has found the most compelling…

With a million views, Tim and Hannah’s Affordable DIY Self-Sustainable Micro Cabin tour is our most popular house tour of all time. Tucked away amidst a dense forest and surrounded by wildlife, Tim and Hannah’s tiny cabin boasts a storybook view of treetops and purple-bluish mountains. This tour immediately sets the scene of a dreamy homemade cabin that is so enviable, it’s not really a surprise it’s our most viewed tour.

It’s the natural, stunning, forested setting on 20 acres of land. It’s the rustic aesthetic of the cabin’s exterior. But more so — this tour is likely so popular because it embodies so much of what Apartment Therapy and its readers value: Two people had a vision for a home and they created it themselves with their own hands, in a sustainable and beautiful way.

But it’s not just the home that showcases their sustainable philosophies; their careers and passions do, too: Tim Eddy snowboards, Hannah Eddy illustrates, and together they celebrate and advocate splitboarding. “It’s a more sustainable way to access the mountains, via our own human power, and the effort on the climb up leads to a very fulfilling rip down!”

In fact, they’ve written a book, Split the Difference, which is a “fun little book about the human powered experience of splitboarding.” 50% of book sale profits will be donated to Protect Our Winters.

So, perhaps it’s not just the fact that the “Chillderness Cabin” is a cool, tiny home that’s made the tour so popular. Maybe it’s the entire picture: The sustainable-minded couple, their passions, the landscape and more. Maybe the best house tours are life tours.

“Your home, your life.. you all make my heart jump for joy! I would love living like you…and even taking away some of your ideas just settles my soul. Thank you so much for sharing.”
