As far as tiny houses go, this charming country home is about as picture perfect as they come. Although it is only 260 square feet, the bright white interior and lofted ceiling make this home invitingly open and comfortable.
The home is built on a dairy farm near the coastline of Northern California amongst a cluster of other farm buildings. It was designed by Richardson Architects as a yearly family retreat that would blend in with the environment and the rest of the farm. It definitely achieves the look, with its country aesthetic, white wood exterior, and orange sheet metal roof that matches the surrounding buildings. The large wraparound covered porch makes for a perfect lounging area on warm summer days.
While this home wasn’t intended as a permanent residence, it is designed with all the amenities that would make it an ideal living space for a small family looking to downsize to a small but comfortable home. It is built with all weather-resistant, non-corrosive materials for durability.
The design concept embraces a fun, whimsical and practical character that evokes the rural quality of the property.
