This 336 square foot house (weeHouse) is located in the prairie land near Lake Pepin in Minnesota. The cabinets and kitchen are from IKEA. The exterior is clad and painted to where it has that rustic look to it. It was put together in 2003 for about $60,000.

When you go inside there’s stainless steel in the cabinets and some of the furniture along with the hardwood look on the floors, walls, and ceiling. Plus you are surrounded by openness–floor to ceiling windows on both sides with sliding glass doors.  I would love to live in a place like this. On the other side of the house (opposite of the kitchen) there’s the sleeping areas. It looks like one queen or full bed with privacy curtains and storage plus a smaller loft bed–also with privacy curtains. In between that is pure openness.
