This light-filled tiny house is made almost entirely of reclaimed wood

Proving that repurposed materials can be used to create gorgeous design, this 26-foot-long Legacy tiny home is made almost entirely from reclaimed wood . New Hampshire-based builders Wood & Heart designed the house with a compact yet sophisticated living area enhanced by an abundance of natural light thanks to three large skylights. From the exterior to the interior, the tiny space was designed to offer all of the comforts of a “regular” home. The structure is clad in cedar wood siding that contrasts nicely with Shou Sugi Ban -style charred cedar trim, giving the home a nice rustic feel. Related: The minimalist Yoshino Cedar House was built entirely out of locally-sourced timber Wood accents line the interior – including black walnut and African mahogany counter tops, 3? solid hardwood oak flooring, floating black walnut shelves and a wooden dining table. Covering the space is a ceiling made entirely from rough-sawn planks of reclaimed timber. Three large skylights and 13 Andersen windows provide the space with plenty of natural light . The living space is warm and comfy, with a sleeping loft and full-size pull-out sofa for guests. The kitchen, although compact, has enough space to make a nice meal with a four-burner stovetop and a 24-inch ceramic farmhouse sink. Of course, ample storage space is found throughout the home. Wooden planks cover the length of the interior’s flooring until the bathroom, where honeycomb geometric tiles take over. The bathroom was also built with a reclaimed accent wall. The Legacy, which can be hauled on any standard trailer, is currently on sale for $85,000 including all of the furniture, appliances and decor. + Wood & Heart Building Co.

Comments Off on British farmer plants heart-shaped meadow in honor of his late wife

  Winston Howes, green thumb and hopeless romantic, planted 6,000 oak trees  in the shape of heart in his South Gloucestershire meadow 15 years ago as a tribute to his late wife, Janet. His stunning memorial was his very own secret garden for years until a hot air balloonist happened to cruise over the land and captured a picture of the giant grassy emblem. “I have my own balloon and am quite a regular flyer—but this was the most amazing sight I have ever seen from the sky,” the pilot, Andy Collet told The Telegraph . “It was a perfect heart hidden away from view—you would not know it was there. You can just imagine the love story.” Read the rest of British farmer plants heart-shaped meadow in honor of his late wife Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: British farmer , British farmer tribute , heart , heart meadow , heart oaks , heart shape , heart-shaped , heart-shaped meadow , Janet , Love , love tribute , meadow , oak trees , South Gloucestershire , Tribute , Valentine , Winston Howes , Wotton Hill
