I thought you might enjoy this tiny homesteaders house that has been converted to a tiny history museum ‘The Teacherage Museum’ on Stuart Island in the San Juan Islands in Washington State. The furthest North West point in the lower 48. The museum, a tiny library and a small store are all left open and unmanned and operating on the honor system.
Thanks Joel Lee for this submission. If you have a photo that would work for this feature please email it to email@example.com.
This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape is of a floating cabin, my other passion, off the coastline of Vancouver Island in the province of British Columbia and taken by “portland papa.” (see his website here)
I like the simplicity of the cabin and the rustic setting it fits so well into. Most likely used as a rental cabin, my guess is it would work quite well for full time living as well.
Do you have a favorite retreat? Where do you go to get away from the hustle and bustle of life? I am always looking for tiny houses in a landscape photos and if you have a special place you would like to share with me and the Tiny House Blog readers please send the photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and have a great day!
This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape is a photo taken by adventurer Chris Duff and friend of one our readers Richard Dandridge. Richard has been following Chris Duff’s latest travels via his blog located here: http://www.olypen.com/cduff/Frames.html. Chris is rowing a boat from Scotland to Iceland.
This photo is of a tiny/small home located on the Isle of Lewis. The Isle of Lewis is at the North west corner of the group of Islands known as the Hebrides, or Western Isles. Part of Scotland.

This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape is called the Rustic Texas Victorian built by Tiny Texas Houses.
This beautiful 12′ x 30′ is a charmer that looks like its been here for a while, but it has only sat here a month on the site. Tung oiled antique pine siding, period 8″ matched and unique porch posts make for a wide open front porch. Enjoy!

This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape almost does not look real and you have to follow the link below to see all the photographs. I had the hardest time deciding which one to post and probably should have put them all up.
This is called the Squish Studio and is designed by Saunders Architecture. The building is 322 square feet and is a contemporary artist studio located on Fogo Island, which is in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
The Squish Studio’s white angular form, situated on a rocky strip of coastline that could rival Italy’s western coast offers sharp contrast to the traditional vernacular architecture of the nearby picturesque community of Tilting. As its architect, Todd Saunders, has commented on the studio’s siting, “…it is out of sight, but close.” The approach to the front entry of the studio is dramatic, as the most southern end of the studio rises twenty feet above the ground, in sharp contrast to its most northern tip that measures only half that dimension.

This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape comes to us from the little country of Ireland. I had the privilege of visiting Ireland last summer and it is one of the greenest places I have ever seen.
Known as the Irish Vernacular this home was built in the traditional style of the area. The website gives you information for inspiration to build your own tiny/small home. This one was built for 25,000 euros and took around fifty days to build. Built with the help of friends, family, and neighbors and some professional help as well. Check out interior photos and construction photos at their website: http://www.irishvernacular.com/
