This is a wonderful sea ranch home in California built on poles.

Outside, you’ll notice this house sits on a hill – or rather, above it – on seventeen massive poles. Vertical gray wooden siding envelopes the home’s angular structure, which includes multiple juxtaposed roof levels. You can take in the surrounding tall trees pointing to lovely clear skies while reclining in Adirondack chairs on the back porch.

When you go inside, you’ll find an open floor plan, complete with two bedrooms and one bath. For the self-sufficient types, the house includes a rustic wood-burning stove, but also the luxury of a flat screen T.V. Bright colors and eye-catching paintings, stained glasswork and other art pieces give the house an eclectic flair. Best of all, you can rent it out for a week or a weekend and enjoy the Sea Ranch life.

This 576 sq. ft. small house is designed by architect Bruce Lanier of Standard Creative. It has a 24′ by 24′ footprint and sits on 15′ tall foundation piers. When you go inside you’ll find a living room, kitchen, bathroom, and a bedroom with a genius sliding barn door designed and built by Zack Giffin of Tiny House Nation that houses extra chairs and a dining table!

Since this tiny cabin sits on stilts you also get plenty of covered outdoor space underneath the structure which is a great feature in a small home. The family who built it currently uses it to vacation on their spare time when they get time off from school and work (which keeps them elsewhere). They also rent it out to others using Airbnb and HomeAway so if you wanted you can try out tiny living here. Cool, right? In the future they plan on moving in to live in it full time.
