Small House, But Not Tiny

Old Neglected Small House Restored

Restored CabinAt 700 square feet, this house is not considered tiny by today’s standards. It is small which is a suitable size for many people looking to downsize their life.

This small building has been restored into a gorgeous cabin.

The idea for these types of homes is to conserve, restore, protect, and remodel buildings that have been neglected. Essentially, it’s recycling a building that would otherwise remain uninhabited or torn down.

The building was a neglected property in Idaho and has been rebuilt for the purpose of becoming a permanent rural home or a vacation home.
The nearest neighbor is, at least, five miles away.

small cabinThe house setting is in a previously used farmers field. It has clear views of the fields all the way to the mountains.

About the building:

The main floor consists of a good size master bedroom with a large bathtub. The master bedroom comprises approximately 40% of the structure.

The bedroom is at one end of the house, and the kitchen is at the other. In the middle is the living area.

There is a large deck just outside the home.

There are lots of big windows to take advantage of all the gorgeous views, including the mountain range.

There is a decent sized loft bedroom on the opposite end of the house to the master bedroom that is accessible by a ladder. The loft has two windows, one that is a sufficient size to take advantage of the view.

Loft BedroomThe house is completely off-grid which is understandable because of the location.

This place would make the perfect home for someone looking for seclusion, and a relaxing stress-free way of living.

I especially love the idea that they’ve taken a long neglected building and made it into something inviting and livable. Finding a structurally sound old building and transforming it into a home space is great for the environment and would provide the owner something to be proud of.
