Tiny House in a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is a blast from the past. Called the “Weekender,” this cute little house was found on one of the few tiny house websites I could find back in 2007. Unfortunately, the website is no longer up and I don’t have interior photos.

You can view a floor plan here.

It is amazing how times have changed in those seven years. Back in 2007 it was almost impossible to find tiny houses and now they are all over the country. Enjoy!

I featured Alex and Mina’s photography a few weeks ago in the Tiny House in a Landscape feature and Mina contacted me to share another location and small abode in a landscape they had discovered on their travels.

This one is called “The Old Ice House” which is located in Upper Jay, near Lake Placid, New York. Mina said they had a wonderful and restful stay at this old ice house.

Come to find out you can stay there too if you choose. This old restored ice house is on AirBnB and you can click here to get all the info.

The Icehouse is surrounded by nearly a thousand acres of privately owned land, and offers miles of completely private hiking trails leading into the forests and up into the mountains that belong to the house.

The historic 19th century property derives its name from its original purpose – it was built to store blocks of ice during the warmer months of the year that were cut in the winter from the ponds. The ice was used to cool the storage rooms of the nearby Wellscroft Lodge (and probably ended up in the odd cocktail here…).

You can see more pictures of the old ice house and follow Alex and Mina’s travels at sending postcards.

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is a photo of a cabin taken by Alex and Mina on a road trip that they took from Montreal to Val-Des-Lacs, Canada. They published an online travelogue of their trip on a blog entitled “sending postcards” which you can view here.

I personally enjoy rustic cabins and this one with its weathered wood siding and nice big porch is particularly inviting to me. I like the way the porch protects the wood from the bulk of the snow and can only imagine the warmth that wood brings during a cold winter day. I would enjoy seeing an interior photo of the cabin but my guess is that Alex and Mina were not able to go inside as there are no inside photos to share.

Tiny House in a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape I found while searching for cabins in the woods. All I could find out about this one is that it is from somewhere in Southern Finland. I can’t seem to find out anything more.

So you photo detectives please go find out for me as I am probably posting someone’s copyrighted photo. I would like to at the least give the photographer’s name and credit his/her work with a link if possible.

I love the setting and the little cottage. I could live there quite peacefully. How about you?
