Jacob Witzling, creator of pnwcabinland, is a cabin builder (and the second-grade teacher). Who’s currently driving this eccentric and extraordinary truck cabin around the United States. Built on the top of a 1979 F-250 pickup, the tiny abode accommodates a 20-square-foot loft for cozy, yet comfortable sleeping and eating. Its rustic façade has been meticulously made primarily using salvaged wood, including its siding, roofing and all interior walls and trim.
Witzling thoughtfully repurposed every inch of the cabin, from its siding and roofing to all interior walls and trim. Therefore giving it a unique and eco-friendly charm. Collaborating with his life partner, Sara Underwood, Witzling cleverly designed the cabin to be aerodynamic. Which is a crucial consideration for life on the open road. Thus the roof and sides of the cabin boast elegant bends and curves, carefully calculated to slice through the high winds encountered on highways. Hence ensuring a smooth and efficient journey.
A Sustainable Truck Cabin
This nomadic lifestyle, seamlessly blending the roles of a teacher and an artisan. Which seems to represent a true testament to Jacob Witzling’s creativity and resilience. As he travels across the United States in his mobile cabin, he continues to inspire others with his unique approach to life and housing. Witzling’s commitment to sustainability is evident in his choice of materials. Salvaged wood, with its weathered charm and history, brings a sense of nostalgia and timelessness to the cabin. Beyond the aesthetics, this approach also speaks to a deeper ethos of reducing waste and reusing resources. Every curve, every joint, is a testament to his dedication to efficiency and functionality. All while maintaining a cozy and welcoming atmosphere.
