all quiet along the potomac tonight

potomac-cabin-2Rarely do I ever create a post about only one thing that I love. I do it for movie and song reviews, recipes, succulents, what I bought and wore, places I travel to, and articles that I find. Oh my, maybe that is all I do! I should rephrase that. Rarely do I create a house post about only one thing that I love, or find inspiring. I am breaking that cycle today.

The Little Barn is going to be a total of 1113 square feet. That is twice the size that I initially wanted. When we bought our lot, I did not want a house bigger than 600 sq. ft. In fact, I was contemplating Tiny Homes that were 20′ x 24′, and some as small as 10′ x 16′. Yes, you read that correctly. I even had my husband convinced. I told him to think of it as an adventure and showed him examples of people’s own stories of Tiny House living. In the end, it was the refusal from my contractor that hindered my plans to go that small. However, the desire to build a Tiny House still burns within me, and I often research Tiny Homes for inspiration!

potomac-cabin-4potomac-cabin-5I found the Potomac Cabin on Pinterest a few weeks ago. Remember when I explained how I did not want a flashy roof or windows and that I preferred seasoned homes over newer-looking ones? Well, that is evident in my love for the Potomac. Aside from the name that brings me visions of strength, longevity, and speaks to my wayfaring soul, the cabin itself is the cutest and coziest use of reclaimed materials that I have come across in a long time. Its colours are understated, its space is well utilized, and although its a newer construction, its materials come with their own history. Add a ton of snow, and this looks like something that could be found in good ol’ Saskatchewan.

Would you ever consider living in a Tiny Home?
