    Very tastefully done! Well decorated and the view from the front porch is well worth the price of admission. Hopefully, that outdoor shower has a little built-in privacy. Am not a fan of having that loft ladder over a food preparation area. Also, the cost? Between $20 to 30K? That’s an awful but gap. Just sayin’.

    I just wonder…, it’s not built on a trailer, is there a reason why not build it a few feet higher so there’s actually a standing room up in the loft area. The other, while I can appreciate an outdoor shower, for the climate, I see no reason why there couldn’t have been an indoor bath included in the design. I guess it’s a personal choice, but looking into the future where this place MAY be sold, it’ll limit the market. Even if 3-4 feet was added to the house in the design, the extra cost wouldn’t have been prohibitive and perhaps enhances the value of it down the road.
    Just my 2 cents worth

    Ps; I’d imagine the owner had her reasons for building it as it is, perhaps restriction on the deed or whatever, so my opinion is just a stab in the dark due to lack of knowledge of the area.

      There is a bathroom, with a shower, that can be seen in the video. It is across from the kitchen. I like the surround porch and the vaulted ceiling in the living room. MOST OF ALL – THE VIEW! Awesome. Good job.

    Really pretty!! Love the lighting in the living area, and the space. Thank God for good friends and family. What would we do without them?
