{foto friday – minimalist lifestyle : the cutest tiny home ever.}

13 Sep

i love a minimalist lifestyle.

ever since i sold all my stuff and moved to NYC in 2008, the idea of a minimalist lifestyle started to appeal to me more and more.  as years have progressed, i’ve found myself actually downsizing even more.  it’s very liberating to be able to fit everything you own into a 5-piece suitcase set and the back of your subaru.


i’ll have a story to tell soon behind this little house… for now, i just want to share the fotos of where i stayed on vacation last weekend on the beautiful western slope of the rocky mountains. this home sits on private property with the roaring hills steps away, as its backyard.  i am not certain of the square footage, but it i’m guessing it’s around 300, including the loft.  the living space is maybe 200 square-feet?  but it is so well-designed, one still feels open within the space.  plus, all you have to do is open the door and you’re in the biggest open-space ever… 😀


i just fell in love with this place.


how could you not?!


complete with patio and furniture, outside heater…


and plenty of wood out back for the firepit…


mini mountain home.



mmm, cozy.

stay tuned next week for fotos of the interior.

    I love a minimalistic lifestyle as well…but with our family of eight we just can’t manage to get everything to fit in five suitcases 😉 but I do try to cut down on the amount of “stuff”!
