CABN Has Launched

October 18, 2017 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Most of us dream of simplifying our lives, even for just a few days. The tiny house movement is gaining momentum globally, the urge to reduce excessive consumption has led to a desire for more sustainable living. 

Adelaide based company CABN® is unveiling an exciting new, off-grid South Australian accommodation experience. The 2.5 by 6 metre eco hideaway is something special.

Stylish, sustainable, and functional: it is minimalism on a tiny scale. The first CABN is surrounded by stunning Adelaide Hills landscape. The secret location is a 30-minute drive from Adelaide and will be available for people to plan an escape.

The CABN vision and ethos is to gently encourage people to get in touch with what is important – each other – and live a more simplified, authentic and genuine lifestyle.

“CABN is a significant opportunity for guests to recharge, recalibrate and experience a real disconnect from technology and the crazy we bring into our lives,” says owner Michael Lamprell.

“We are living in a world where there is ever increasing pressure to chase, obtain and acquire but without really understanding how this is going to make us happy.”

“We plan to help people start this journey by designing and handcrafting beautiful tiny houses. By placing them in secluded areas of natural beauty, no further than an hour from Adelaide, we’re enabling a brief respite. You can come and experience the minimalist lifestyle without breaking the bank or jumping on a long-haul flight. It’s an escape from the hectic day-to-day schedule or a weekend break for the terminally busy.”

CABN is partnering with private landowners and national parks for locations. Once in place, these moveable, custom designed tiny houses will seamlessly blend in with South Australia’s incredible coast, hills and mountain landscapes.

The CABN includes a heater, two-burner kitchen stove, king and king single bed, shower, revolutionary and environmentally friendly composting toilet system, mini fridge/freezer and kitchen utensils. All the comforts of home, on a smaller scale. There is bath and bedding linen, and biodegradable shower products. Heating and fan cooling provide year-round comfort.

“There is no WiFi,” Michael says. “But there is a lockable safe to store all your technology and smartphones… just in case.”

The digital detox is aimed at encouraging guests to connect with each other and revel in the joys and rhythms of nature. To relax, rediscover, and reconnect.

“Somewhere along the way we lost touch with what is important, or more accurately who is important. Life on today’s ever changing, bullet train we call earth is eroding away the whole reason we exist – each other. The basic human instinct of interaction is being diminished by a society more comfortable with banter on social media platforms than a simple hello and a hug.”

Michael was inspired by Minimalism: Living a Meaningful Life, a book he read during a study trip to Boston in 2016. “It resonated with me and my journey on so many levels. I also met the guys behind a B&B accommodation business called Getaway. I was instantly drawn to their concept and motivation behind it. The idea of living a more simplified, authentic and genuine lifestyle appealed to me so much that I want to be able to bring to Australia and New Zealand what the guys in Boston have created. But tailored to our communities and way of life.”

Be part of the CABN movement. Throw off the shackles of consumerism, possessions and constant digital connection.
