Tiny House

Yes, I LOVE Tiny Houses!  I’m especially drawn to those on the whimsy side, much like the one featured below.

 

Look closely. You may just spot Hansel and Gretel nibbling on the roof.

 

These A-mazing (pun intended) chalets were built in the ’70’s as a vacation rental community in Blowing Rock, NC. Today, they’re sold to private owners.

My guess is that these tiny house houses are propped on the side of ski slope. Can you imagine skiing all day and then coming back to sip hot cocoa by a mod fireplace in this special space? I can’t help but wonder if orange shag carpet might have been involved.

Blowing Rock, NC has a rich history of skiing. Appalachian Ski Mountain began in 1968. It was the first ski area in NW North Carolina and the second oldest in the state.

As a teenager, I drove to the mountain with friends but hunkered down in the ski lodge while they made their way down the mountain. Hey, somebody has to hold down the fort.

A whimsy A-frame at its best

I love how these tiny houses were lined up one-by-one like petit fours on a silver platter waiting to be enjoyed.

 

After all, nothing says cozy like a tiny community.

 

This introvert’s dream tiny house, however, is propped in the middle of nowhere, surrounded only by mountain air and the sound of a stream all astir.

How about you? Could you see yourself in one of these A-frames? If not, where would your dream second house be located?
