Tiny House in a Landscape

The Teacherage Museum

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 tinyhouseblog@gmail.com.

A charming little dwelling ! with historic value !
A minor detail – Stuart Island would be the furthest NW point in ‘the islands’, but Cape Flattery on the coast has that distinction. Thanx for the great blog !

Okay, this is MY little house! Looks to be a cozy 10 or 12′ deep X 14′ wide, and just enough height to possibly include a loft-space bedroom (seeing the little framed window – or vent? – in the gable, second photo)… just right for one! I LOVE the red trim against the white.
Makes me think of all those little ‘kitchenette’ cottage motels that were popular in the 50’s, mid-60’s, still a few holding on in the early 70’s. As recently as 1995, however, a friend and I found and stayed at just such a gem, with 6 to 7 grey-shingled, white-trimmed little cottages, on Lookout Mountain Hwy. above Chattanooga, just a short drive from Ruby Falls… wish they’d had a postcard or something, so I could’ve remembered better their name or location… the interiors were thoroughly ‘old timey’, with NO AC (we did fine, it was late May and cool anyway), a four poster iron bed (Queen size) covered with vintage linens and a fat quilt and hardwood floor. At the time, my boyfriend would have rather we went to the more modern/amenities-laden Days Inn in the city, but I was happy as a lark… 😉
Keeping these pics on my HD because this is just how I’d like to picture MY ‘little house’, someday (just a tad bigger, so I can shoehorn in my little bedroom and full bath, of course)…
