Tiny House in a Landscape

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…

Giant Journey - Canada

Jenna Spesard and Guillaume Dutilh are traveling the country in their unique tiny house. This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape features their home in after they crossed the border into Canada. Though Guillaume states it has a little to much HDR and the house looks a little unreal, I personally enjoy the the photo.
