One more little cabin for all you tiny house lovers out there.
Blue Moon Rising is actually a vacation cabin rental business in Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. Their specialty is cabins built from recycled, vintage and eco-friendly materials. Several cabins are located on the lakeside lot but this cutie caught my eye – her name is “Kaya”.
“Kaya” has the whole Blue Moon theme going inside and out, starting with that crescent curve over the porch.
The interior is just as blue-moon-y. There’s no other way to describe it.
Walls, floor, ceiling, doors, and windows are derived from old house and barn parts.
Another project by David and Heather!
My Canadian house-loving friends in Nova Scotia have been busy little bees over the past few years. I’ve featured their work before here on House Crazy with their converted school house and beautiful seaside home that is now for sale. Another little side project they have been working on is the ominously named X-Permit Cabin.
The X-Permit Cabin (pictured above) is located somewhere in eastern Canada with a view of the ocean.
I can’t tell you exactly where it is because I have no idea. That is classified information.
I can tell you that the code word for the location of the X-Permit Cabin is “Pirate Harbour”.
So why all the precautions for this fun tiny home?
Here’s the backstory….
The X-Permit Cabin was built on a salvaged trailer frame. It is self-sustainable, off grid, and built without permits because technically it is a “travel trailer”.
The point of all this, as David tells us, “is to circumvent onerous permits and inspections that come with ‘permanent’ structures”. He adds that the X-Permit Cabin is “an exercise in civics, construction and innovation”.
Ever wanted to live on a house boat but not be bothered by sea-sickness? This place is the perfect solution…
Come on, be a rebel!
Listed for sale (or trade) in Kingston, Tennessee this unique take on small space living is priced at a mere $15,000.
It has 1 bathroom and 1 bed – well 2 if you count the “Amish style bunkhouse” also on the property.
The tiny galley kitchen has a propane stove and fridge, in addition to a pub table and matching bar stools.
It’s tight, but efficient (it is/was a real ship after all).
And someone had fun with the décor…
Both of my bathrooms are larger than this house. It measures in at 189 square feet, and unfortunately, it does not actually have a bathroom. But it does have a bedroom (area), kitchen (area) and living room (area).
This garden-shed sized cottage is located close to my old neighborhood in The Beaches area of Toronto, Canada.
And it is cute…
….and you do get somewhat of a yard.
But for $229,000?
Actually it’s a former lobster trap shed.
Well, two of them if you count the studio next door. Price? $575,000
Measuring in at 384 square feet, this place is just real estate insanity.
Sure it’s cute – vintage, beachy - shabby-chic even; but I do believe that one of my bathrooms is bigger than this, um, house. (Does it even have a bathroom??)
