Timber framing seems to be making a comeback – and I can see why.
“Shown is one way of finishing our 8 1/2′ x 11′ timber-framed mini-barn. We are selling a kit for the frame of this mini-barn as well as plans for 2×4 construction of the same size cottage For more information, people can go to our website: www.stilesdesigns.com“

Jeff & Arlene report on their take on tiny house living from Seattle – and doesn’t that snow look great right about now!
“We get questions like, “are you still living in the tiny house?”, and sometimes from skeptics, “so, uh, how is it, living in there?”Well, we still love it. We built it and it means something to us in addition to being a good place to live.”

It’s a boat, it’s a house, it’s a houseboat… no it’s a floating cottage.
“When Frank Fila, and his wife Kathy Rollow, first purchased their 1972 floating cottage they knew it was small, but thought it was perfect. With pristine views of Norris Lake, the cottage quickly became a favorite weekend destination for family and friends.”

A new design from Historic Shed.
“Most of the people who contact Historic Shed about building an outbuilding have a historic home that they want to complement. A few have more modern style homes but want something traditional in their backyard. Our most recent project was a cross between the two. The house at the site is new but has Craftsman influences in the design, so we designed the new one-car garage with details that reflect the newly built home.”

One of my regular readers ran across this fantastic photo album of old English ruins. Many of the photos are of very large structures but tucked here and there are some incredible tiny huts and cottages. Thanks again Dav!
Old English Ruins
I really like the design of this tiny house. The steep roof and low side walls really give it a cottage look. This one is also for sale and located in Sebastopol, California. The seller is asking $19,900 for it.
