Tiny House in a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is shared with us from Don Smith. I’ll let him tell you about it.

I’d like to share a tiny cabin story.

My wife and I always wanted to have a vacation property in the mountains. We had spent some time in Jackson Hole and fell in love with that area. While staying there we found the cabin of our dreams.

We knew land was fairly expensive in Jackson Hole, so we decided to explore near by towns and by luck discovered a quaint little town Driggs, Idaho, perfect for our cabin location. We lucked out and found a beautiful piece of land with a stream on 20 acres. Our 500 square foot cabin is called the caboose. It’s a pre fab design built in Jackson Hole. The unit is a mix of recycled wood, metal sheeting, a large main room plenty of windows, large master bedroom and upstairs loft. In addition, we added a huge wrap around deck to view the mountains, moose, and wildlife.

Our family has really enjoyed our special little cabin in picturesque Driggs, Idaho. We rent our cabin on Airbnb when we are not there. It seems many of our guests have really enjoyed our cabin as much as we do, judging from the reviews. I think for a lot of people it’s a great way to experience living in a small house, and especially for those who are thinking of a tiny house in their future. Continue reading

Outside My Window: Grenada

One of my favorite things about living in a floating home on the water is that I can see so many different parts of the world all from the comfort of my own home.

I can travel around at my own free will, changing my scenery whenever I please. Outside my window I see palm trees, white sand beaches and sleepy little towns. I snorkel along the coral reefs just a few feet from my home and I explore the beauty and history on land in each new place I visit. The only thing in control of where I go is the weather.

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is a cabin featuring Fred Beal who lives in Helena, Montana. I featured one of Fred’s cabins in this feature in 2013 and he has been busy building more cabins and plans ever since we first met.

Fred is an expert with the Log Dovetail technique in building log cabins. He recently relocated this cabin featured here and I have included a couple of photographs of the move.

Fred is now offering plans for his cabins, some are free plans and others are paid. I have attached a couple of photos of the plans so that you can get an idea what they are like.
