Esther Fredrickson sent this week’s Tiny House in a Landscape. Here is what she says:
We’re currently building a tiny house in Albuquerque, New Mexico (the outside is complete; work on the interior has just begun). The building site is also a field that needs to be flood irrigated. The water came particularly late this year, but it finally came and gave us a good excuse to clean up our construction site.

Bob Hepburn sent me a neat picture of his cabin to use in the Tiny House in a Landscape feature. Here is a little information about it from Bob.
Called “My Father’s Cabin” in Casco, Maine. It’s a 12 x 16 x 15 foot affair with a nice spacious loft and is still a joyous work in progress. Almost done with the insulation — next up is doing the interior paneling and finishing the up the floor. An oil-filled electric radiator keeps the place surprisingly toasty!
Walt Barrett, who has shared several stories about the tiny homes he has built and lived in, sent this photo of a tiny house he forgot he had. I’ll let him tell you more.
I don’t know why I never sent this photo to you a long time ago. This house is located on the lot next to mine overlooking the lake that we live on. It was built in the 1930′s by my late grandparents who are long gone. We purchased this from them in the very early 1950′s. The interior was in very bad shape and it was not insulated so we gutted it right back to the walls and I now use it for my wood working and Inventing shop. It is approximately 14′ X 20′ and I really enjoy working in it in the nice weather.
Have a great day!
Tanner shares a photograph he took recently. I’ll let him tell you more about it.
Love the tiny house blog! I’ve been interested in building one myself for a while now. While I was out working I saw a tiny house in a landscape I thought would be great for the blog. I’m not sure how big it is but I’d guess 100-200 square feet. I’m not sure its exact use either, but it’s likely a studio or retreat of some sort. The house is located in Henrieville, Utah, which is about 20 miles east of Bryce Canyon National Park and within the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
Have a good one,
Adam Nash photographed this beautiful photo this week. Here is what he says: I took this photo up near Mt. Baker Ski Area in the Washington Cascades. It appears that this small A-frame (potentially a tiny home) has an incredible one-of-a-kind view of Mt. Shuksan. It doesn’t get any more idyllic.
The bloggable part of this scene is the ‘tiny home’ on the hill. A home with a window looking out at the whole Mt. Shuksan massif 24/7. For me a window is infinitely better than any framed piece of art on the wall. It glows! It radiates! Its like a backlit, ever appropriately changing, landscape photograph. It never feels wrong.
No one, in a house of a natural setting, ever said, “I wish there were less windows.”
Given the opportunity to live here with an original Ansel Adams print hanging on the wall or a simple window, which would you choose? Leave a comment. Pin it, share it. Spread your love of all things amazing in this world. And do good things. -AND Click here to see more of Adams photography.
This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is a photo taken by Ryan Burke who says: This tiny house, a fishing shack I assume, is located in the Connemara in Ireland.
I had the opportunity to visit Ireland a couple summers ago and saw many tiny homes like these off in the distance. I’m glad Ryan was able to photograph this home as I was on public transit and could not just hop out when I wanted to. Thanks Ryan for sharing this photograph with us.
