Yoga Teachers Hand-Built Tiny House Is A Warm Woodland Haven ...LOVELY JUBBLY SURE MAKE YOUR DAY

Yoga teacher's hand-built tiny house is a warm woodland haven

Here on TreeHugger, we profess a preference for the modern aesthetic. Yet, we admit that we do reserve a warm, fuzzy part in our hearts for warm and organic interiors like the one from this gorgeous, hand-built tiny house, located in the forest on Salt Spring Island, in Canada's West Coast.

Dubbed the Keva Tiny House, it's a labour of love designed by Rebecca Grim, a yoga instructor. It was built by Grim, her carpenter friend Rudy Hexter and apprentice Lenny. Measuring 22 feet long, and with an area of 168 feet, plus a 64-square-foot loft, the house also has a porch made of 8' x 8' pallets that can be easily dismantled and moved when necessary, and is sheltered with clear plexiglass to allow light in, and to keep rain out.

Once inside, one of the first and most charming aspects is the cast-iron wood stove, set against two walls covered with rocks. The sitting area consists of a bench that is lit with large windows, plus a chair on the other side, to the kitchen. There's a lovely, curved wooden counter here, and another on the other side of the kitchen.

The sleeping loft upstairs feels roomy thanks to the shed-style roof, and has a skylight for night-gazing. The house itself measures a total of 15 feet high, as it is built to fit the size requirements for the ferries of British Columbia, rather than 13.5 feet for the roads.

There is a good amount of organized closet space. The bathroom has this cute shower; water can be heated via a hot water on demand system. Graywater is collected in a 5-gallon container outside and reused to water the garden. There's no toilet in the house; Grim prefers using an outhouse.

In all, it took six months and USD $38,500 to build this tiny cottage. Grim pays a few hundred dollars a month to rent the land it sits on, and for car parking, laundry and utilities. The savings she's generated will allow her to travel, while still having a home base to come back to. She and Hexter plan to help others build their own tiny homes, as she tells the Huffington Post:

We’re really interested and keen because it is a lifestyle that we really would like to support. It’s a way for young people to own their own home when they’re 20–something, and I think that in this day and age that is not really available to a lot of us. It would be nice to be able to support that.
