Donelle’s father left her some lovely property by a marsh, and she had promised him she’d do something great with it — so she had a lovely little cottage built on it, and plans on having a treehouse built in the future!

This 320 sq. ft. cottage has a garage underneath and the living space up top. It’s studio-style with a queen bed on one end and the kitchen on the other. A little bathroom with a tub finishes off the space. What do you think?

Now this is a unique vacation home with such amazing geometric features that you’re sure to find fascinating. The bed alone is worth a whole article — it’s a dome with interesting shelves that take you up to the mattress area!

The defining feature of the home is a huge circular window that’s “folded” in the corner, providing views of the beautiful woods surrounding the home. There’s also a grand kitchen, and sleeping for four! Let us know what you think. The home was designed by architect Steven Holl, and he calls it, “Ex of In House.” You can watch a video about how he came up with the design below.

Remember Jesse? The 17-year-old who was living in a tent (on purpose) and decided to build his own cabin from reclaimed materials? Well, it’s been five years since Florb’s last interview with Jesse, and guess what — Jesse is still living in his DIY cabin, now with girlfriend Jayne.

They’ve made plenty of adjustments to the cabin to make it couple-friendly, but they’ve also taken advantage of the land they’re on by building a screen house, sauna and pizza oven to expand their living space. It’s quite the awesome off-grid set up!

This is a cozy and romantic grey chalet in the Hudson Valley of New York. The home has warm wood-paneled ceilings and whitewashed wood floors for contrast. The queen bed is on the first floor, divided by a sheer curtain.

In one corner there’s a full kitchen with lovely blue tile, and through a barn door, you’ll find a full bathroom as well. A ladder takes you up to a lounge loft where you could hang out and read a book. It would make a really great full-time residence with a little more storage.

From the outside, this “couplespod” might seem a bit futuristic or even plain, but inside it’s a gorgeous modern hideaway with breathtaking mountain and water views.

It’s set up with a full bathroom and kitchen, and the bedroom looks out of a large picture window at the lake. Need to relax? Head out the back of the pod and sit in the soaking tub surrounded by a lush bamboo privacy screen. What do you think of this design with a ground-floor bedroom?
