Can anyone own a Cabin ANNA?
Yes. However, we recommend that you take care to blend Cabin ANNA with its chosen location in harmony with the surroundings. Most of the Cabin ANNA experience is provided by nature itself. We strive to offer ANNA to people who share the same passion for the combined balance of ANNA and its natural environment. If our dreams match, we are delighted to work with you and establish ANNA in nature.

Pricing is available upon request. Currently, ANNA Collection is manufactured and shipped from Europe. Initially the ANNA One will also be manufactured and shipped from Europe. Please bear in mind that local taxes and import duties might apply when importing.
Is it possible to purchase ANNA Collection fully furnished and equipped?
Yes, this is possible. A lot of care and attention to detail has been taken with the design the cabin. It is our vision to ensure a seamless experience between exterior and interior design. For the Dutch market, we have created a list of premium suppliers that will provide you with everything needed for the interior. You will be able to order from these suppliers directly, subject to local availability.
When can I expect delivery of ANNA in Europe and the US?
We aim to deliver the first ANNA Collections in the Netherlands and Europe by Q2 2023, and ship the first ANNA Collections to North America in Q4 2023. The first ANNA Ones will be produced and shipped in 2024.
These goals are realistic but depend on many external factors and thus are subject to change. With each step in the process, we will have more certainty regarding delivery times and price. Any changes will be communicated immediately to everyone with a reservation.
What are my obligations if I apply to pre-order?
Making a reservation through the 'apply to pre-order-form' is completely non-binding and you have no obligations. It offers us an insight into the demand and offers you the chance to be the first to receive an invitation to place a firm order.
I live outside the United States and Europe, can I still apply for a pre-order?
If you’re not a European or US resident, or if you wish to purchase an ANNA later than 2023, we invite you to apply for a pre-order so we can contact you personally and discuss the possibilities.
Construction and delivery
Does ANNA need a foundation?
Due to its weight the cabin does not need a concrete base foundation. Depending on the type of soil which Cabin ANNA is erected on, it may not need a foundation at all. However, in most cases, we use a screw foundation. This consists of 16 steel piles of 1 to 2 meters (3 to 6 feet) long that are screwed into the soil. This additional installation takes about two hours. The advantage of this kind of foundation is that it can be removed in less than 2 hours, leaving behind no trace in nature. We have partners to do this for you. But if you prefer to arrange it yourself, we’ll provide you with a screw foundation plan.
Can I build ANNA myself?
Exclusively for the ANNA One model, we are working on a flatpack delivery with detailed instructions that allow you to build your own ANNA (with the help of a local contractor).
How does it work with ANNA off-grid?
ANNA can be installed on-grid and off-grid. Due to varying local regulations around the world, the option for a fully turnkey off-grid solution is only available in the Netherlands. To install ANNA off-grid outside the Netherlands, advice from a local expert is needed. As we have a good understanding of off-grid systems, we would be happy to share our knowledge with you.
Can you deliver ANNA as turnkey?
Yes, we can deliver ANNA as turnkey (including kitchen, toilet and shower) or without amenities to you.
What’s the lead time from order to delivery?
It takes three to four months to manufacture ANNA. The onsite construction takes one to two weeks depending on the location and other requirements.
How airtight is ANNA?
Both the glass and wood sections of the cabin are fully airtight. Smart built-in brushes allow the wood and glass sections to fit perfectly, to protect you from rain, dust and wind. However, you shouldn’t compare Cabin ANNA with a regular house. Housing insulation values don’t apply in the same way with Cabin ANNA. Rest assured, you won’t feel cold. And you’ll love the cabin atmosphere and climate experience with its glass and wooden section layers.
Is ANNA resistant to extreme weather conditions?
ANNA is built for moderate climates. You will feel perfectly comfortable when the outdoor temperature is between -5 and 35 degrees Celsius. The cabin is thoroughly tested to withstand strong coastal winds and heavy snow loads. A local engineer should always check if a cabin is suitable for the local weather conditions.
Can ANNA be built anywhere in the world?
Theoretically we can build ANNA anywhere around the world. The more remote the better. We love the challenge which comes with putting ANNA in remote places. Do keep in mind that more challenging areas will potentially translate in longer building times and therefore above-average installation costs.
Can ANNA be used for permanent living?
Yes, ANNA is perfectly suitable for permanent living. However, regulations differ from region to region, and some regions may not allow permanent cabin living. In the Netherlands for example ANNA is classified as ‘temporary accommodation’ (tijdelijke logies). Meaning it can be used as a second or recreational home. We recommend that you to check with local authorities.
