This rustic and modern tiny house has its own entrance and private front yard which is gated. The owners built it on their property because they always wanted to build a house themselves and they did it with the help of friends. When you first enter the house you’re in the kitchen, living area and that’s also where the bathroom is. Go upstairs and you’ve got a sweet loft with a queen bed.

It was built using mostly reclaimed materials and furnishings. Some of the wood, trim and shelving came from an old shed that used to be on the property. More “unwanted” wood was harvested from high end construction job sites. Some of the windows came from an old horse farm structure. And the kitchen stove and refrigerator came from a museum.

This 900 square foot steel and stone house actually packs two bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and is located in the city of Taos, New Mexico. That’s pretty good use of space considering it’s just 900 sq. ft. and there are no lofts.

One of the rooms has a murphy bed which is great because you can put the bed up and the room doubles as an open office with great views.

Inside the vaulted ceilings are up to 10′ high with large windows to let in the sun and give you great views of the surrounding forest.

The woodwork and cabinets inside are all custom built and in the kitchen you’ll find some really nice black granite countertops.

It’s very well insulated to help make it easy and efficient to cool. Plus the appliances, heating and water systems are also very efficient.

Nearby you can find a beautiful stone deck with a hot tub. And in the rear you’ll find a BBQ grill on the deck. And I almost forgot to mention.. There’s a river back there you can fish from that’s so close you can almost do it from the deck . 🙂

This is a vacation rental in Taos, New Mexico so if you’re interested you can look up the rates right here. For more info and photos click here.

What did you like best about this 900 SF modern/rustic eco cabin? For me it’s the general great use of space. I like how the kitchen is spacious, usable and has lots of cabinets because I like cooking at home. I also like how the living room is relatively small. I don’t like oversized living areas because I think they’re a waste of space. How about you?

“This secluded one-bedroom cabin, located minutes away from the south entrance to Yosemite, overlooks a forested meadow of wild flowers and native trees – and the occasional deer.” (source)

Rustically Awesome Small Cabin in the Woods

I thought you’d also enjoy this rustic small cabin in the woods.. I mean, who wouldn’t?

Unique Ladder to Loft

The staircase/ladder looks a little dangerous but fun and it’s definitely great looking.

Great Outdoor Space

I also like the outdoor space. Not only does the outside come in thanks to the oversized patio door but there’s also plenty of windows throughout. In the first shot you might have noticed the two adirondack chairs separate from the patio, too. So when you have your folks over there’s even more outdoor room to “get some space”.

Rustic Tiny Cabin Interior

I love the railings and ladder of this loft bed and just the overall look and feel of the interior of this cabin. I wish that we could see more!

To me using natural materials from the surrounding environment for parts of your tiny home is not only inexpensive (usually it’s free!) but it’s also just cool and it’s good for the environment.

Personally I just love that rustic country feel.. Especially in a tiny house or cabin.

What can you use in your area to add this type of vintage all natural charm to your current or future tiny house? Have you already done it? If so, share in the comments below.

I absolutely love how they’ve got the kitchen set up outside this way the interior doesn’t smell like food and it avoids all the oil build up and stuff like that which always happens over time especially in a tiny space. I LOVE this porch.

Small, sweet, quiet, eco-minded guesthouse and sauna perched on a ravine in the forest 1 1/2 miles from Seneca Lake and the Finger Lakes Wine Trail and 3 miles from the Finger lakes National Forest. The cabin sits in the woods on the edge of my yard and gardens with my small house about 200 feet away. This is luxury camping. 

There is a screened-in porch facing the ravine set up as a living room but shares it with a shower, claw foot bathtub and gas stove. Outside, a deck with seating, fire pit (with firewood) and a clean, composting outhouse about 20 feet from the cabin. There is no toilet inside the cabin. On the inside there is a small kitchen, table and chairs and a door to wood-fired cedar sauna with an opening window to the porch/bath.” (Source)

Sweet Pea Tiny House

Here’s a beautiful little backyard garden cabin that you can use as a guest house, your own house or a hobby house. It looks like it’s probably around 100-150 square feet and it definitely has that rustic look and feel to it while also maintaining that beautiful cottage look.

Spacious and Modern Park Model Tiny House on a Trailer

I really like how this home has plenty of outdoor living space. There are covered porches on both sides and if you noticed in the first photo there’s even one on the side of the home. This particular home was built using SIP panels. It ran approximately $95,000 to design and build according to the original article. And as you can tell there are some very high quality materials used to build it. Today it’s located at a campground in Jackson Hole, Wyoming near Yellowstone National Park.

Tiny House On The Go

This is a pretty nice collage of pictures on sort of a modern/rustic looking tiny house on wheels designed by Jay Shafer.

When it comes to tiny houses I’m sure that many of us appreciate having the ability of being mobile. Especially with codes/zoning the way they are.

I personally rather build on a foundation just because I wouldn’t want to move often and would rather be able to travel freely without being attached to my house.

That, and, I’d like to build a home that’s little wider than 8’6″.

But many of us feel differently and would prefer to build their tiny house right onto trailers and avoid many of the obstacles faced with building on a foundation.

What do you think about this tiny house on wheels and would you rather have a single mobile tiny house or maybe a couple tiny houses in different locations you could travel to?

Looking forward to hearing from you below.

Tiny Log Cabin: Is Rustic Simplicity just for Men?

small-cabin-rustic-simplicity

If you’re anything like me, you like a little bit of everything when it comes to small houses.. Including log cabins.

It’s hard for me to pinpoint what my favorite style of house is. But I know that the look and feel of wood is top on my list.

And to me log cabins are the epitome of “rustic simplicity”. I guess there’s also this manliness associated with log cabins.

It’s sort of like getting to be at one of those awesome old school manly barber shops with Polyurethane coated wood.

My question to you is, if you’re a lady, do you also enjoy log cabins or is it more of a guy thing?

Grooms House by Tiny Texas Houses

Don’t miss the interior of the grooms house (I like to call it the RRR house because it’s Rustic, Recycled & Reclaimed) below.

There’s the groom house by Texas Tiny Houses (built using mostly reclaimed materials!) “flying” to its destination.

You can find more photos of these two rustic reclaimed beauties right here.

Have you seen Brad’s tiny victorian cottage I blogged about and made a video of on Tiny House Talk?

I’m curious, would you build your tiny house out of reclaimed materials like this or would you rather buy new or maybe even “green” rated materials?
