Even though this isn’t a tiny house I still thought you’d enjoy this 840 sq. ft. modern and rustic cabin in the redwoods.

And the best part is that this particular one was designed and built in a way that makes it feel modern and rustic at the same time. But not only that… The exterior of the structure looks like a cabin. When you go inside though you’ll notice a cottage-like homey look and feel in certain rooms. So the result is a modern rustic cottage cabin, isn’t it? Oh, and good news- plans are available for this design if you like it enough to build it.

This is the small house that feels big… It’s an 800-square-foot custom designed and built home on a foundation and I think you’re going to like it.

I just can’t get enough of small houses that are well designed like the one you’re about to see here. It’s a timber frame build by Nir Pearlson in Oregon. His firm specializes in green designs.

In this case, the client wanted an energy-efficient small home made out of sustainable materials. The clients are an aging couple who are nearing retirement so they wanted a single-story design that they’d love. Here is the result.
