Tiny House in a Landscape

This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape was taken by Eric Jacobson who lives in Austin Texas. Eric says:

This past weekend I rode in the LiveSTRONG Challenge here in Austin. Actually, the ride takes place in Dripping Springs just west of Austin. I usually ride the same route, but this year I decided to ride a different one and I was pleasantly surprised by the scenery, especially this little gem. It sits just off the road with a small stone fence in front, large pasture surrounds it on the sides and back and a river running in front on the other side of the small country road. It was a great Fall day for a great ride with fantastic scenery.

If only I could pick up this little house and put it on my property! Love it! Love it from the rusty roof down to the stone foundation. Wonder what the inside looks like, and would love to know this houses history!

The pumpkin on the porch just makes it… 🙂

I like it. It reminds me of the Ozarks style of building.

This house looks like it has a lot of stories, mostly good ones.

I’m having trouble believing that this is really saving any space or, in any other way, better than just constructing a small, permanent shower. Maybe it would be useful as an outdoor shower, but seems pointless for practical indoor applications.

This is really neat. I wonder if the author could, or has thought about, going back and talking to the owner and getting a little more information. I would bet that when you come across a place like this, if you stop and introduce yourself, explain your interest in the place, and show them this website, most people would gladly tell you their story about how they came to live there, and I’ll bet many would also let you take pictures of the interior to share. Nothing to lose by trying anyway. I always have at least a nice point and shoot camera with me whenever I go anywhere, and usually have one or both of my Canon digital SLR’s in the car on the off chance that I’ll run across something cool like this. Unfortunately, I haven’t happened across anything cool yet!

    Oops. I was typing two posts at once on the notepad and accidentally copied and pasted both. That first paragraph was not meant to go with the rest of my comment here.

      You bring up a a good point and are probably correct in assuming people would allow the intrusion to some extent but in this case, I was 20 plus miles into a ride and no one wants a funka delic smelling stranger in weird tight clothes and a helmet standing in their small space chatting to them about how cook it is. 😉
