I found this awesome little house today which has an interesting feature… The decks fold up so that it looks like an old shed, but then come down to form a porch and reveal a tiny home. The wood in the house is gorgeous with chunky beams and the post and beam style is amazing.
The Foresters Cabin was originally erected at the 1996. This cabin 24′ x 12′ has drop sides so it looks like a shed when closed up. The structure is a pegged green oak frame. It has a double bed alcove, small washroom/wc and kitchenette.
I have been holding on to this one for a while and finally had some time to get the video up. This is a really neat house in Alaska that is quite a nice size, but also not your typical tiny house. I like their shelves that double as a stairway to the top floor for their sleeping loft. It’s quite a cozy little place nestled in the wilderness.
One thing I like to say when talking about tiny houses is that it is not a certain square footage that makes a tiny house a tiny house, but a reasonable square footage per occupant. So that means that for families, a tiny house is going to be getting into the small home category and there is nothing wrong with that, in fact it’s great! So today I found this beautiful small house the has three bedrooms and two full baths, but still is reasonable in terms of space and extends living to the outdoors. The house is under a thousand square feet (not sure exactly) and was built in BC Canada.
So a while ago I introduced the “Ryan’s Tiny House” section which outlines the process of me building my tiny house, since there there hasn’t been much activity on that page except for my Tiny House Checklist. Well I had some time to get a bunch of website work done and was able to start the Building Guide section. You can access it by clicking “Ryan’s Tiny House” link in the menu or click here.
The guide is a chronological order of my building process that includes all the posts I have done to date on my house. Each section has a “read more” button to get into the details. Hope you all enjoy!
Today we have a small house that was remodeled Victorian boathouse overlooking the lake of Virginia Water in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire. The top floor of The Boathouse, once the Royal Boat Keeper’s lodgings, now serves as a spectacular retreat taking advantage of one of the most outstanding settings of the south east of England. The ground floor maintains its purpose of housing boats with two large timber doors opening outwards onto the lake. I don’t have the square footage of the home, but it is certainly on the larger side for the houses we cover, but I really liked the look and the furniture.
