Tiny house

A tiny house big on style, mighty where it counts. A small footprint, big use of re-use. Reclaiming, recycling, reinventing but definitely not rehashing. Fresh green design capped off with the freshest of new roofs, moss and green ferns. Jessica Helgerson's family home in Sauvie Island, just north of Portland, Oregon. Photography by Lincoln Barbour.

What a sweet home! Exactly as you said tiny but big in style!

All those tiny houses are so sweet and lovely and well organized. They bring in mind something of a "mom's" feel!

Great design. Best use of space possible. The kids room seems a bit empty though.

Absolutely love it, so cozy and functional. I wish I can do it too.

This is a great space, beautifully turned out. As a Brit, this is actually bigger than the average terrace (townhouse) and I'd love to have all that space to play with!

This is definitely a house I can get behind - and what a lovely soaking tub

The bookcase makes for a stunning feature wall, I'm so excited to build myself one!

I'd like to know more about the materials used? Where they were reclaimed and such.

Thanks for sharing!
