Tiny House in a Landscape

mountain cabin

Here is a tiny house I saw recently while I was traveling in the Sierras in California. No one lives in it. It’s built right into the side of a cliff. I don’t know that it was ever inhabited actually and might have been some kind of utility shed for the river. Nearby they route to the lower valley for water. It was padlocked, but otherwise looked intact.

Have a great day, Jennifer Nicholson

Hi. That’s an interesting photo. With all the vents on the outside walls, I wonder if this could have been at the top of a mine shaft. Anyone know?

Ken … Do you think you’ll use the photo I sent you of the floating home in Berkeley? I was down there week before last and saw it … and couldn’t remember seeing it in a “Tiny House In A Landscape”, something I see religiously! – Steve

Looks like it backs up to the face so if there is a mine shaft, it probably goes out the back of the cabin.

Whatever it is, it has a wonderful feel to it! Thanks, Kent.

I’d expect to see a chimney if it was for habitation.
