My partner and I bought this small house as a second home in early 2012, as a retreat from our lives in the “biggish” city of Durham, NC.
The house, located in Blowing Rock, NC (just 3 hours from our primary home) was built as part of a “future” 21 unit vacation rental community.

700 Sq. Ft. Simple Living Cabin
Only 7 were ultimately built on this 3-acre property, with an elevation of 3,300 feet, set on the Middle Fork of the New River (which is one of the oldest rivers in the world; and a unique feature is that the river flows north, and predates the mountains).
The property changed hands multiple times over the years. We bought the house following a complete gut and renovate.
The home is just under 700 square feet on the main and lower level + a loft space.
By the end of this year , we will have spent 60 days here, which just reinforces the value we are getting out of having it.
The ultimate goal is someday to retire to the little house we call “Riverwood”.
Love your blog!
