    Love your tiny house! Charming and cozy. LOVE your canning jars holder on wall! Can you please share where to get buy that!?

    Thank you! πŸ™‚

      Connie, I was looking at the jar racks, myself, and it looks like each one is simply a strip of wood with perhaps 2-3/4in or 3in nails driven in to allow the jars to be held up by the glass threads. Looks like they can slide right in to each slot.

      What a fantastic cabin, great job to the builder & interior designer of the place! Thanks for the Share, Alex! =)

    I love the window “collage” on the long side of the house. The whole place is charming and inviting.

    I love, love, love this house! I love all the windows, the canning jar storage, the use of reclaimed and dead fall. It’s a beautiful little house with a nice set up.

    All around the office, everything came to a screeching halt, everything else was dropped.

    As soon as we saw the supper table surrounded by loving friends, tears of joy.

    This is our ideal of the Tiny Home movement. Hearts burst wide open.

    Thank you.

    It was mentioned that it is a chemical free house so what kind of coating was placed over all the wood surfaces?

      You can treat wood just simply with oil.

    Is the tub in the upstairs loft? A lovely view but the pragmatic person in me is thinking that will be very hard to fill with no running water (and very easy to drain!)

    Also, it looked like in the first page photo the room under the loft was closed off, then in later pages it was open. Which is the latest chronological?

    Thanks for sharing this beautiful dwelling!

    This is nice, it just seems like the slightest wind would knock it over however.

    This is very nice. A man’s touch. Love the instruments. Would be fun going on the road in this. Better than a leer jet. Table seated a few people.

    Without photos can’t comment on the bathroom but I only have two thoughts. All that different coloured wood is making my eyes see double, an I would add a window beneath the bed to make the desk light enough to see to use. Otherwise for 16′ this us incredibly spacious. Depending on bathroom facilities I might be tempted to add on an extra couple of feet for a decent loo and shower and if that is the bath upstairs lose that and leave it as a guest bed area for visiting guests or storage. Brilliant design and seems to be able to fit in loads of guests. Really well thought out in general.

      Karen, I think there is a window right over the desk. You can see light in the pic (altho behind the desk is dark) and if you scroll back up to the pic with the window collage, you can see it.

      I am no longer wanting a tiny house, but the “eclecticness” of this model, along with the natural clutter, made my heart sing.
