Maria and her husband purchased this 875-square-foot first as a vacation property, so they could escape their city life in New Jersey in the mess of 2020. After the death of Maria’s father, the couple decided it was time to simplify earlier rather than later. They moved in full-time just two weeks ago!

They added a wall to the loft bedroom to give their daughter a spot to stay when she visits, and they also converted the shed onsite into another bedroom for their son when he comes to town. Someday they hope to welcome their grandkids to the lake! What’s your favorite part of this small spot?

This is an eco friendly prefab timber frame house kit by Noble Homes. They sell efficient kit homes with customizable floor plans.

All the materials are easy to handle, including the lightweight SIP‘s for the walls and roof. Everything you need for the exterior of the home is contained in the kit which makes it easier to build.

Although this house is not as tiny as it looks it still has a relatively small footprint but it does boast about 1280 sq. ft. of space on single level floor plan with three bedrooms so it’s great for a family! I really like the open kitchen and living area with its large glass windows. The exposed timber beams in the living area plus the windows give the home a warm cozy feel to it too, don’t you think? Either way please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
