I have been spending time looking at bus conversions and came across this video by Jake as he talks about how he built his bus and also give a tour of the bus. His bus is a Victorian style to it and he use a lot of reclaimed materials to build most of the furniture and storage. He also shows some of downsides to campers, RV’s and 5th wheels by showing a cut away of a travel trailer he has, he then compares this to the bus. He gets into some of the details of the plumbing and water systems that I haven’t seen anywhere else, so it was good to see a good application of these systems.
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.
I found this Tiny House today from the folks over at Tiny Texas Houses, it’s been around a while, but I haven’t blogged it before. This is what they say about it:
This is a 12’ x 20’ gingerbread cottage with the sweetest rounded loft bedroom and a beautiful 4’x4’ tub and metal tiled walls. The kitchenette included a fold up table for breakfast. The beautiful railings were made from new “Old Stock” spindles that were hand turned a century ago. They are made from Poplar, Walnut, Pine, and Oak, which were mixed together to create a unique variety due to the variations in the cuts on each hand turned spindles. This house sits near Canyon Lake serves as a bed and breakfast space that includes a whirlpool tub outside with a great area for relaxing in the Texas sun.
The part I like most about this house is the dark woods and amazing workmanship put into it. They have such character and a high level of detail work.
