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!

What a fantastic sanctus sanctorum! I have thought about the same thing - a special place outside the house (smoking off limits) but outside the weather.

We are having quite the snow storm in Virginia this evening, so smoking on the back porch, though covered, it quite the experience. But, my MacBaren HH Vintage Syrian tasted and smelled all the sweeter! I am sure many a sailor enjoyed a bowl in worse weather than this aboard some tall ship ages ago.

So, congrats on the realization of your great smoking cabin. Thanks for sharing!

Regards

Ah, brilliant! I'll agree with the crew that furniture has got great style and the place looks inviting indeed!

Hope you'll have many a pipeful there in good company and solitary reverie.

And for the record, I am seldom envious but this is an exception...

Very nice place! The best I've seen is the one from Croatian colleague pipe smoker in Dalmatia near Sibenik:

There used to be a similar one there before, but was ruined. This one was built with old stones except for all the wooden things that are new (windows,furniture). Very nice old rustic style with a fireplace kitchen.

OK - I'm officially stunned and amazed. I love BOTH of the clubhouses pictured. The first is still clean from recent construction and will in time gain the needed level of man-decor and pipe clutter that makes a place comfortable. The second appears ancient, but that may be due to the difference in construction materials and techniques...awesome. That pizza oven is over the top, man! lol

I too have a smoking 'thing' designed and constructed by yours truely...totally by hand (as I didn't have power cords that would reach that far and not drop the current too far to be 'tool safe'). I've got a set of Japanese pull saws that rivel power saws in their ability to to rip and trim. Those puppies come SHARP! And I was surprised that a good brace and bit can go through a 2X6 and couple of 4X4's like butter...to allow carriage bolts to slide right through. It took a while, but was worth the effort...designed to use existing dimensional lumber with the least amount of trimming...it's what my wife and her friends have teasingly named "the Tiki Shack" (though it's no such thing). Unique design elements? Oh yes. Open air (except on the weather side...for ample smoke dissipation. Polycarbonate roof...for ample light gain, yet major UV blockage. Pass through...for the dog (nuff said).

I thought I had some pics somewhere but can't seem to find 'em! So I'll have to get out the old digicam and go to work so I can post. More to follow.
