What started as an experiment born of pure unadulterated boredom has grown into something else. These are the finished huts I have built since 2009. Hand made and not to any scale or certain style. These small huts are made by hand of paper, wood and real bamboo. The techniques used to build the huts are all my own and thought up as I go. The huts take many many hours to build but I have enjoyed every one of them. Thanks for taking a look and I hope you enjoy my version of Small Paradise.

For a more detailed look at my huts and how they are made including my latest projects please visit my thread and thanks again.

Hut number #1 , 2009. This was the one that got me hooked.










Hut number 2 , 2011




Hut #3 , 2011





Hut #4 , 2011








Hut #5 , 2012. The Mai Kai Restaurant. My largest build to date.

These are wonderful in the extreme. I especially loved the thatching on the roofs. Beautiful and perfect.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I have just finished the Trader's hut. This little hut has a bunch of details and was a fun project. You can check out the full build in my thread in creating Tiki page. Thanks again.
