Tiny House in a Landscape

This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape is a little different. It is a tiny house under construction in a landscape. The photograph was taken by Dave Stonehouse of StoneHouse Woodworks in the Rockies of British Columbia, Canaada. Dave says: I live in Golden, British Columbia in the Rocky Mountains. The picture of the cabin under construction is actually in my back yard. We have a couple of acres. My company is Stonehouse Woodworks. I build log and timber cabins, do finishing carpentry, and build furniture (pretty much anything with wood).

You have to wear a few hats to stay busy in a small town, but I’ve always managed to.

Thank you Dave. I plan to feature this cabin again when it is completed, so, readers stay tuned.

I like those wide logs and I love log cabins. It’ll be fun to see it when it’s finished. Be sure to post back later. 🙂

Amazing how that tree towers over the cabin-to-be! Yes, please do post photos when you complete it.

Very nice. Would like to see more pictures of the construction details. Thanks!

    Thanks for the interest. The logs are large (16″-20″) douglas fir, sawn on two sides to 8″ thick. Half dovetail notches in the corners and the bellies will be chinked with a modern synthetic chinking. I’ll pressure wash and sand the logs once the shell is complete to bring them all to a nice pink colour. There will be a heavy timber loft system over half the building. I tried to include a couple more pics but couldn’t figure out how to get them from gravatar to here. If anyone has any advice on that I’d appreciate it.
    Thanks Dave

    Thanks for the prompting. I am in the process of crawling out of my pile of saw dust long enough to establish a website. We’ll get a FB account up this week. Check back, hold me to it.
    Thanks for your interest, Dave

You know, I really don’t like the rounded, rustic look of logs in log cabins, but I love this. How come more people don’t build like this, with the wood all squared off and lovely – is it extra difficult, or have some other problem?

    I’ve lived in both round and squared log homes and what drove me nuts about the round was how many places there are for dust to settle. This type of wall has all the beauty of solid woood and good joinery but a more practical shape.

Wonderful workmanship! What are the dimensions of the house?

It is neat seeing a house being built. Are there any drawings showing how it will look when it is finished? It will be neat to see it when it is done. 🙂

dovetails are truly nice.

I love those LOGS, too. They are sooooo rural Arkansas.
