Tiny House in a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is shared with us from Don Smith. I’ll let him tell you about it.

I’d like to share a tiny cabin story.

My wife and I always wanted to have a vacation property in the mountains. We had spent some time in Jackson Hole and fell in love with that area. While staying there we found the cabin of our dreams.

We knew land was fairly expensive in Jackson Hole, so we decided to explore near by towns and by luck discovered a quaint little town Driggs, Idaho, perfect for our cabin location. We lucked out and found a beautiful piece of land with a stream on 20 acres. Our 500 square foot cabin is called the caboose. It’s a pre fab design built in Jackson Hole. The unit is a mix of recycled wood, metal sheeting, a large main room plenty of windows, large master bedroom and upstairs loft. In addition, we added a huge wrap around deck to view the mountains, moose, and wildlife.

Our family has really enjoyed our special little cabin in picturesque Driggs, Idaho. We rent our cabin on Airbnb when we are not there. It seems many of our guests have really enjoyed our cabin as much as we do, judging from the reviews. I think for a lot of people it’s a great way to experience living in a small house, and especially for those who are thinking of a tiny house in their future.

I know for our family our retreat is a small space that gives us a unique opportunity to share it with nature while fully enjoying our spectacular setting.

The bear rug is a complete turnoff but the house is really nice.

Absolutely beautiful. Not so tiny, as tiny houses go, but it is perfect. I’d love to call this h. home… Maybe one day. Thanks for sharing. You are rightfully proud….

Love your house and it’s location! What a great deck. I could easily live there – no problem.

Beautiful – so rustic yet comfortable looking! – cabin amidst a gloriously beautiful landscape! Thanks for sharing… Although not as ‘tiny’ as some, this is the kind of ‘small’ I’m inclined toward… I love the way it’s put together, almost like components, all small yet efficient spaces composing a wonderful ‘sum’! 😉
I see a television, some lighting, but missed any info on how this power is supplied… on or off the grid? Well water, tank or ‘on the grid’?

I love the layout, it is a beautiful place with nature all around. I am very disapointed in the fur furnishings, it says” you can look at all this beautiful nature and you and kill yourself an animal too” Please dont promote slauther of family memebers of a different speices.” promote a better world through kindness to animals..

    I think the fur is fine. not everything in nature is vegan or veggie. in our primitive days, fur was a way o stay warm and even used as money for gathering winter supplies and meat is a great protein to eat during the winter months when heavy snows prevent the use of outside gardens in barren lands. if you question eating meat, then ask the eskimos and other native humans who hunt whale, and duck and rabbits, wolves, caribou for their furs, fat, organs and bones… they survive on meat sundried and stewed and sometimes that is all they have to feed a community or tribe.
    I think no less of someone who chooses to eat only veggies, but don’t force your lifestyle onto another when its clear that both have existed cohesively for so long. Thank you,

Beautiful home. This is about the size I would want. I know where Driggs is! You are fortunate to have this lovely home.

As far as ‘free ads’ go for Airbnb, not bad…nice looking place, yet not really small. I totally agree with the comments on the animal skins on display, you should know better; this will completely turn off many people.

Love this place! Such a pretty area. I may just have to look it up on AirBNB sometime.

A lot of you don’t like animal skins as decorations and that is fine. But what gets me is how you are telling this gentleman what he should and shouldn’t have in his own home!!! Unbelievable!!!!! If you don’t like them that is fine if people don’t like them you really don’t have to stay there do you? It’s called freedom to choose.

I had to comment as well. This is a beautiful home.

What I disliked about this post, was the judgmental people feeling they had to post their views on the furs in their home. Humans are top of the food chain just a many other animals are that eat meat. Many of you would never have survived in primitive times.
