Tiny house in the big woods

This morning when I left for work just after 5 am, this was what my little house looked like. About 8+ inches of heavy snow fell overnight here and it was still dumping when I pulled out and took these shots.


  1. that is sooo pretty!! Tiny but obviously cozy!!
    Wishing you a very happy Christmas in your little wooden retreat ;)
    love, Maren

  2. Definitely makes one envious of simpler times! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Love all your updates-keep 'em coming!


  3. I do like simpler times, but they are also more work. I don't mind this, but it is true.

  4. I am very interested in the tiny house movement. It would give me much needed financial freedom. However, I am not an off grid kinda gal... this is the exact floor plan I want, but I might add a washer/dryer combo. My problem is finding somewhere to park it. This is the only thing holding me back, but when I try to ask around... I get a glazed over look. Can anyone help?

    1. This is probably the hardest thing. I very much wish that it was truly legal to live in them in more areas. I think that would make it way easier for many people. Good luck.

    2. i have a 12x18, back "bedroom" is12x8. not off grid, all conveniences, elec, sewer, well water. on Left of bedroom is fully tiled bathroom with sink, toilet & whole room is shower with drain in floor, like a boat, or european bathroom. shower head pointed straight down so most of bathroom stays dry ! after it is a 27" wide closet with an apt sized 24"w stacked washer/dryer. but i mostly air dry stuff outside, so stuff is stored in the dryer. then i made a 10" deep shoe rack in front of the washer, as high as the washer - i have a lot of shoes. & a clothes bar on top in front of the dryer. if i want to access the dryer i simply pushed the clothes aside. future = storage shelve above dryer. on the other side of the bedroom "aisle" is the bed. currently a double/twin bunk, but future = ikea hack, dresser underneath the bed w a step up. too old to be climbing up to a loft
