Tiny House | House Tour |

Tuesday, August 14, 2012
















I am in love. I wish I lived here and the fact that this house right is practically in my own backyard is making the fantasy almost unbearable - so close yet so far away! But it is lovely to know that the lucky owner is a local Portland designer, Jessica Helgerson. Her and her husband bought the home on Sauvies Island a few years back and restored it by using reclaimed materials. If you are a Portlander I highly suggest you check out Jessica's site where she talks about her home a bit more, there's quite a history there. But let me sum it up here - the home was once in a different spot, probably about ten miles away, when that spot flooded the little home floated on down river where it now rests. How cute it that?! Jessica and her family of four live in this stunning and charming and sweet little house of 540 square feet where they are attempting to live a sustainable life: see chicken. They also have a 1200sqft greenhouse and their roof is a "live roof." This little house is a Portland dream and I have a big giant crush on this tiny house. I do have to admit I would need at least twice that amount of square feet or my greenhouse would end up being a giant storage shed because I am not, nor will I ever be that organized. I am so impressed!

To see more of Jessica's work check out here website, it's amazing, her work is amazing JH Interior Design

What do you think? Is it the cutest thing you ever did see?

  2. How could this possibly be 540 sq ft?! I am impressed. So many sweet nooks to hang out it- especially loving the living/library area.

  3. As someone who lives in a tiny house, I am always looking for this kind of inspiration! I love that every bit of space has been cleverly utilised – the beautiful bookcase, the loft room and the porch really stand out for me (oh yes, and let’s not forget about that amazing bathtub)!

  6. It's amazing how they were able to maximize the small space. I love the bunk beds. It's so surreal! If that were my house, I'd never leave.

  10. What a beautiful home!! A really beautiful cosy cottage feel to it.I think I would also need several sheds to accommodate all my eBay furniture buys. It's beginning to border on hoarding!
