Tiny House in a Landscape

nature corner landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is a photograph that Michael Vaughan-Albert found and sent to me. It is a wall paper image found at Random Wall Papers and you can Click Here to get the full size image.

I’m not sure if the small building is flooded or if it is built as a floating structure. To me it looks like a barn or some type of storage building but I can imagine it converted into a tiny/small home.

The location is my ultimate dream. A beautiful lake in the mountains and a cabin in which to enjoy the view. I really enjoy the reflection of the mountains and the building. Where is your dream location for your tiny home?

It looks to me like a boat house.

Just off a deserted beach, nestled in some palm trees. Or a little houseboat docked in Key West.

Great photo! This blog has actually been a great inspiration with regards to the question you’ve posed. I’m not yet settled in a career, and so while that means I’m not close to building a home yet, it does leave open dream locations as an actual possibility.

In a thick forest, on a lake or river connected to a lake(s), and close to a quaint village would be my ideal. Definitely thinking small home, in the English cottage style with a wrap-around verandah, made of straw bale.

It looks a lot like Oberer Königssee in Bavaria, Germany.

Stilts might be good to have…

My seminal tiny house experience was living in a small house barge on Lake Union near the Fremont neighborhood in Seattle.

Right on the bike trail, I could bike (or kayak) to work. Right near the PCC. I had beaver and blue herons in the waters around the boat, and yet I was in the middle of the city. (I love being away from it all, but cities make for a more practical and greener lifestyle for me.)

In fact – this is the housebarge I lived on, come to think of it:

    That’s a great looking barge. I built boats for years, mostly sailing and rowing craft. I lived aboard a 27′ sailboat for 10+ years.

    IMO barges and houseboats too often try to be too much boat. They almost never make really good boats and the compromises adversely affect livability.

    If you haven’t seen it there was a thread on here a while ago by a Dominique Brown who lives on a barge in England. Hers is proportionately narrower than was yours, but so too are the canals over there.

    Thanks for sharing.

    When I was a young man…I used to subscribe to military surplus offerings, and being a ship and boat lover, I would get a lot of old minesweepers, tugs, patrol craft, even larger Navy vessels.
    Once they had a few 90′ (I think) steel hulled barges. My mind went to imagining what it would be like to make one of those a home…complete with a lawn up topside.

The best of both worlds is living aboard my 2-stateroom, 2-bath 35′ sailing sloop in Ensenada, BC at the Hotel Coral Marina for $110./week, including elec., the boat slip and access to the hotel’s indoor and outdoor pools and spas ! San Diego is one day away by boat or 2 hours by car…..one of these days will set sail for the South Pacific or elsewhere.

Best location… Any were away from the insanity.

The guess made by Sasa is correct. I quick google search for photos of the Oberer Koningsee turned the following photo up… http://au.fotolia.com/id/24888091

Boathouse probably.

This reminds me of a mobile home that was erected in a pasture, with a corral, not far from a shallow lake. And things were fine, until one winter the skies really dumped a lot of rain and snow. By early Spring the trailer could only be reached by boat and the inside floor of the trailer was about a foot deep in water. Took an amazing photo of that. Lol! 🙂

All you need is a heater and you’re set! Absolutely amazing location.
