You see tiny houses that are perfect and fit right in with their surroundings. This house was designed by CountryPlans’ user rich2Vermont. His family helped him build the 10′ x16′ loft cabin. It has a wraparound porch, a loft, a kitchenette, eat-in area, and secluded dining area. The house is situated on two acres in Topsham VT. I’m not actually sure what I’m more in love with—the house or the land. This looks like such a beautiful and tranquil place to live.
Here is a picture of the cabin. As you can tell, the tiny home was built in the traditional style of many older houses in this region. You must love the dark red, white trim and green roof. And that wraparound porch … it’s an incredible way to add on some extra space. What a wonderful place to enjoy the fresh air and relax outdoors.
Here’s a photo of the foundation so you can get a better idea of the location. The pasture is surrounded with woodland, a babbling stream, and a road. It’s just so idyllic!
Before tackling this large construction project, rich2Vermont has successfully completed several smaller ones. Here’s the lovely rustic span he built across a brook!
This shot shows how small the house will be.
Here are a few photos from the construction stage of the tiny home.
Here you can see how it all comes together. Note the vertical design. The house may be small in terms of width and length but the height gives it a lot more space.
Let’s tour the finished interior. This shot gives you a sense of the vertical design. It’s taken from the inside, looking up the stairs. I love the rustic look of that railing!
The windows are beautiful, too. These were a bit of a challenge, but he eventually managed to seal them and weatherproof them.
Here’s a nice picture that gives you a good idea of the kitchen. It looks like there’s a lot of space on the counter. Isn’t the floor beautiful? These cabinets were made from pine wood that was sourced locally.
The shelves above the counter were finished with three layers of wax and spar.
Here is the upstairs bedroom. Doesn’t the steepled roof make it look cozy? The family dog sure seems to think so. I can’t even imagine the beauty of the view from the window.
Here are some exterior shots to give you a better idea of the porch. What I love most about this design, is how old-fashioned and classic it is. It makes you feel like you’ve gone back in time. It has a colonial vibe.
Here is a shot of the cabin in its finished state. It gives you a good idea of the surrounding environment. You couldn’t ask for a prettier pasture or a more delightful little home.
