Tiny House in a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape feature was submitted by Renee who sent me about 30 cool pictures and I chose three for this weeks feature.

These tiny houses are in the rustic setting with rough wood and timber frame structures built into the landscape.

My favorite is the first photo with the rustic old wood and the beautiful fall colors and a nice view from the hill on which it is built.


I really like the natural roof in the second one and the way it blends into the background. It looks like it has been there forever.

The third one is small timber frame garden shed, but I could imagine it as a tiny house or cabin getaway as well. I hope you enjoyed these and would like to encourage you to continue to send more in. I would enjoy seeing some tiny houses in a modern setting and a modern design, so please keep your eyes open. Thank you!

Best images ever!

Seriously, as you post these, I really want to start using them for backgrounds and other things. Could you clearifiy the license for these photos, as well as perhaps posting (or at least encuraging) larger format versions?

Hi Grant – I will try to find out about licensing if I am able. Most of the pictures so far have been found on the internet and are in a small size. If I am able to get large ones I will set up a place to download them so that they can be used for backgrounds…Kent

This is a great feature each week, please keep it coming. And please, could you add a section for land for sale or share that can legally accomodate the tiny houses? I am in Corvallis, Oregon, and have not had any luck with realtors finding a place. Will post if I do, and does anyone have info on the legalities of sharing land with the tinies?? …Pam

Hi Pam, I’ll see what I can find and if you find anything please let me know. This is an issue that needs changing across the country. Some areas are more flexible than others, unfortunately…Kent

The shot of the rustic home which appears to be sitting on the edge of a hill is beautiful. Where is this located?

Kent Griswold - September 1, 2009 Reply

Hi Bob – unfortunately I don’t have a location and the person who submitted it didn’t know. If anyone can answer the question, please let us know…Kent

Kent, these are lovely! I’m delighted we are almost through with our little shed/studio/getaway in a small urban wilderness.

I think these ‘tiny house in landscape’ would make an excellent calendar.

    when i see a photo, but the way on Pinterest, I click the link and it carries me back to the original, or i search for it. When i find it I may purchase a photo if it’s for sale, or comment to the photographer. I understand copyright,but i don’t understand how anyone can expect to put up a photo and think it’s not going to be copied. I believe there is a way to post photos in private locations or put your copyright on the photo, or have it listed so it can’t not be copied. I imagine your photos are all over pinterest, just saying.
