Tiny House in a Landscape

river house, serbia

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape was sent to me by Ambershawn Ruse who received it as a photo of the day wall paper from National Geographic. It is entitled River House, Serbia and is a photograph by Irene Becker.

I’ve featured wall paper photos before but not sure of the legalities of these photos. If anyone knows I would enjoy knowing as I do not wish to put photographs up illegally.

I read about this house…it really isn’t an inhabited house. It is used by a.ocalfishing c lub. A few years ago the spring rains caused flooding and it was completely destroyed. They rebuilt it exactly the way it was prior to the flood.

Greetings Tinny house lovers, this is my first post here but I am a big fan of small houses for a long time…About this small house:it is situated on the rock in the Drina river dividing Serbia and Bosnia, near town Bajina Basta. This wooden-frame hose is famous for kayak-people and fisherman. Some years ago it was destroyed in big flood. This is how it looks today.House was 30years old.
Greetings from heart, Scholes from Serbia

If I had to bet money, I would bet it is photoshopped, but sounds like it is legit? It just looks so surreal!

I think as long as you correctly attribute image, with a link back to original source you are ok. Most places are ok as they know it increases their web rankings, except the New York Times, rupert Murdoch thinks bloggers are parasites.

Oh boy, if you did this in the states the EPA would come and not only knock your house down, but they would throw you in prison.

Water is government property!

Think I am joking…check this out:


And this guy was thrown in jail and fined for just “collecting” rainwater on his own property in Oregon. Imagine if you built your house above a river, like above.

Never knew the land of the free and home of the brave would make it illegal to use the rainwater that falls on my property. No, we have to depend on the government water with all the toxic chemical neuro-toxins it contains.

So much for a constitution!

    Oh, the insanity! Not sure who said it first, but the problem is not a lack of water, it’s a lack of water storage. When there are huge downpours alternating with droughts it only makes sense to put some water by for the dry times. It’s criminally insane to prevent people from doing that. Water should be a common good, along with a lot of other things that should never be privatised on a large scale. Regulations should be about fair and reasonable distribution and safe storage, not prevention.

When is a home placed inappropriately in a landscape? How does the placement of a building diminish the value of the landscape it sits in? If every beautiful spot in the world allowed people to put a house wherever they please, how long before all of the value of the landscape is gone?

It’s far better to put a home in a discreet spot adjacent to the view you love (and incidentally, color it so it blends into the context) than to foist your home right in the middle of everyone’s viewshed.

“You call a place paradise, kiss it goodbye.”
