Small living that is portable.

Who says a tiny house has to be on a trailer?

I came across this attractive cube on inhabitat.

One large drape floods the space with light



Why do most traditional houses have 12 steps when 7 is plenty?
Lovely neutral walls frame the black kitchen--does one just eat on the couch?
One box of stuff-that's it.

Look at all the green space for a Bassett Hound to roam. 
Do you think a minimalist would own a riding mower?







I would hire this architect based on their toilet paper holder design,

When the only thing blocking your view is a door.























Never ever make the bed.

Tiny white house

Cleaning my files and came across this folder of images.

Small house with a big welcoming entrance:

Combining the rooms make a small space look larger.

Minimalism to strive for:
open shelves in minimal kitchen

Lots of windows for light and a no maintenance backyard.

Remain simple

The tiny tree as landscaping. The interesting arch that frames a rounded door
The cobblestone patterns in the street. The skylights on the metal roof.
The single string of ornaments in the window.
Remain simple.
Small living quarters in city with lovely rounded door and frame entrance

No grass allowed

I have lost the fight to endless crab grass...in fact I think I gave it fertilizer to grow monster size.
Next season I am thinking native plants and places for bees and butterflies to hang out.

Note to self: a purple door looks great with sage green siding.

Small house made of stones

This was my favorite little house of stone as I drove through Wisconsin this summer.

Best small house design of 2015


finehomebuilding.com awarded this 550 sq ft structure as this year's best small home.

First, find a picturesque hill near a remote lake:

Make a spacious bathroom with terry cloth robes for the B&B feel.

Find a table that is one piece of wood with industrial steel legs and burn calories as you stand.

Pack no trinkets, no paintings or artwork---just bring an animal skin for carpet:

The litttle spark

Our move is over, the 952 sq ft home is all fixed up...I should be content.

Then I see designer Kim Lewis and her tiny home.

Every LITTLE detail I adore.

400-sq-ft-home
























Her house has room for two pets while we contemplate about adding a two car garage.

Why not just have just enough dishes?
Love the worn leather belt shelves.

This bathroom...oh this bathroom.
The care of creating the floor tile that reads, "You look good".

The spark has been lit...this journey is not over.
