Thought I'd post a few images of my smoking cabin. It's my way to beat cold temperatures, but it's fun in the summer too. It's a 12' X 10' shed with added windows, insulation, and pine walls. I added an outdoor outlet to our house so I can power up two space heaters if I want to (using heavy duty extension cords through a tiny trap door), but one is usually plenty. Things like the TV, DVD Player, and stereo don't eat up much power at all. I have a stack with a fan to vent smoke, or I can run the Rabbit air purifier if I want to. Pipes don't require much ventilation, but cigars do. Next year, I'd like to add a small deck.
Some things you can do pretty cheap--I bought the flooring on closeout for 98 cents a square foot. My biggest expense outside of the shed was the pine walls--an upgrade based on sentimental value. The furniture is from when my parents passed away--also sentimental value. It's literally a home away from home. I recommend the idea to anyone struggling to enjoy smoking through the winter.

Very, very nice. I just built a duck hunting getaway with the same thought in mind.....its mine and I will do whatever I want in it. 900 sq.ft. that sleeps 4 with all the ammities, full kitchen, bathroom and hot water. Its within 100 yards of my duck hunting hole. In fact I just got back from there fixing a place to hang up our waders. It has been a dream of mine for along time.

Beautiful & brilliant! I have a tool shed in my tiny little excuse for a backyard which I had considered replacing with/converting to a smoke shack/workshop. Your cabin is definitely inspiring. Well done sir!

Love the setup, and I love the midcentury modern chairs and TV table! Smoke there in the best of health.
