Steven from Tiny House Listings just got back from a weekend vacation up to the mountains of North Carolina, just outside of Asheville. They rented out an 1800′s log cabin and on the property was this little tiny house. It was originally used to homeschool the family’s 9 children over 100 years ago. Since then it has obviously been renovated and modernized, but it still has rustic charm. Today it’s used as a bunkhouse for the owner’s many grandchildren when they all use the house for get-togethers.

Thanks Stephen for this beautiful Tiny House in a Landscape photo.

  1. Wow! I really like that. There’s just something about it. Maybe the wood used along with the red door and trim and the silver roof along with the cute lampposts and pretty walkway. It has such a good feeling.

    I agree with Victoria. It’s really cute and it’s a great idea to use it as a bunkhouse for the kids.
    It was never a schoolhouse, though, and until this year or last, had no windows or a nice red door. I have a photo of this shed taken less than 2 years ago. This was most probably the smokehouse for the family who owned the farm, whose barn you can see in the background.
    The cabin itself was originally pretty small and has some unworthy additions. The family who built the cabin was named Wright and, as I understand it, the cabin was built around 1856 and replaced an earlier cabin which burned. The original cabin was probably built in the 1780s or 90s. I got this information from my father, who got it from my mother, who stayed there as a small child in the late 20s or early 30s with her grandmother, Molly, who sold the cabin later in the 30s.

  3. What a charming little building. From the outside it looks brilliant, but would love to see what work they have done on the inside to renovate it. If there’s any way that somebody could get some images, I would very much appreciate it.
