Not Too Tiny House — The Whidbey by Tumbleweed

I am obsessed with this house by Tumbleweed Houses!

The two bedroom version of the Whidbey is just under 600 sf with additional sf in the loft space. I love the open concept, the fireplace, all white interior with black windows, and the flexibility of the plan (the front bedroom could have a rolling door for privacy but be removed for entertaining purposes).

This house was built by a cute gal in Arkansas named Lyndsey Lewis.  Read more about her, the homes she is building, and her fun life on her blog, Little House in Little Rock.

Another site, Berkshire Small House, features a larger Whidbey in Massachusetts.  The entire home lives just under 1000 sf and takes advantage of a truly stunning piece of property on the river.

It is a pure delight to view online (all photo credits go to David Fell Photography).

Tumbleweed Tiny House Company is known for its TINY houses on trailers. However, I really like their small home plans — especially for second home options for the beach or the mountains.

I’m considering a visit to see Lyndsey — just dying to actually WALK the home, you know?

What do you think about the Whidbey? Too small? Or just right?

Its all happening!

This is becoming fun — the details are coming together and the house is taking shape during weeks 14 and 15.

Jeff shows me what the door surround will appear like.

Jeff has been working to make sure all the details are aligned with the home’s character. This means real wood door and window surrounds with appropriate overhang and ensuring the scale of the hearth is in keeping with the room (I didn’t want to overwhelm the space with it being too high). The selection of the bricks was easy but the color of the mortar? What the? That’s when I could not make up my mind!

Here are some shots from the process:

The cabinets have been installed and its making me feel better seeing all this happen since I’m heading out of town for the New Year and want to get the home listed as soon as I return.

Wes Anderson Films Featured at The Florence

While shopping at NOLAJane the other day in the Starland Design District, I noticed a poster in the window.

Could this really be? A film series dedicated to Wes Anderson films?!?

I’m no Margot (could never smoke and would have most definitely sewn my finger back on) but I put on heavy mascara, parted my hair, and donned my best faux fur and headed down to meet some  neighbors at the bar. Highly suggest.

Getting Festive – Simple Decor for the Season

After getting back from my VERY talented friend, Meredith‘s farm near Athens, Georgia, I decided to get all crafty and creative.

Just felt good using all the pinecones and Leiland cypress we collected to create something fun and interesting for the house. No tree this year but these festive decorations will get me in the spirit all while keeping in line with the outdoors-y feeling of my house.
