Tiny House in a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is selection of a few of past tiny houses that have been in this feature. The Tiny House Blog has been in publication for more than seven years and much of that time it has had this feature which has been a favorite of many of our readers.

As the years have progressed several other blogs have taken this feature and made full blown websites from this idea. Tiny House Swoon is one of them and is a great site. I really would love to keep this feature alive and well at the Tiny House Blog but I am needing new photos from you my readers. I can’t take them from the Swoon site or other sites so I need you to send them to me to be featured here. This is a call for you to do so. Please send Tiny House in a Landscape photos and a short explanation of them to tinyhouseblog (at) gmail.com. Thank you and I look forward to sharing many more with you.

tiny house on an island

A tiny home on a tiny island is this week’s Tiny House in a Landscape feature. Norm Thomson took this photo and says that it resides on a tiny island on a small (almost tiny) lake.

As you can see it covers about a third of the island, and the island itself is extremely small. Norm says that I guess you could call this “Tiny House in a Waterscape.”

Thanks for sharing Norm and if you have a photo you would like to submit please send it to tinyhouseblog (at) gmail.com.

Tiny House in a Landscape

Val sent in this week’s Tiny House in a Landscape photo. She describes the location for us.

It sits on a small rise, surrounded by the big trees, but at the edge is cut below that grade, a parking lot and commercial building. The other side is a fast moving busy street, but this little house and its big oaks keep it as an island. After business hours, I think it returns to a solitudary environment.

It is a full time house and I say that by the activity around the property. It is on about two acres. I believe it was part of a farm property and the garage which is down the hill has a stand up attic with outside staircase. It isn’t by any hunting of fishing or lake at all so I think it was part of a caretaker cluster.

It is ON grid. I would also say, that the commercial property was sold in order to pay taxes and to retain this little treasure. That is kind of what happens when the municipal push occurs and development is the PROGRESS and the KEEPING THINGS AS THEY ARE is not progress…
