A craftsman’s fairy tale cottages built with reclaimed materials #Decor & Decorating#garden sheds#playhouses#rustic#tiny home#upcycling#weird houses July 5 2011 | Cat Rocketship I usually eschew the word "whimsical." But if I take reclaimed wood, mix it with a craftsman from Minnesota, and get The Rustic Way, a small company specializing in these tiny whimsical cottages, saunas, and playhouses — it's just the right word. I'd love to see a wave of whimsy overtake architecture for a while. If you need more fancy tiny houses, see more on rusticway.com. Via Tiny House Blog.

How awesome would it have been to have had a playhouse that looked like that! Reply I love tiny houses! More on teeny tiny dwelling places, please! 😀 4 agree Reply and… I fully understand your feeling on the word "whimsical". Reply Oh, I love these! They're sort of Shel Silverstein-esque, somehow. How fantastic would it be to have one of these saunas? (Also an OBH story on homes with saunas would be awesome.) 1 agrees Reply I'm in love! It's like a fairytale cottage come to life! <3 Reply I used to dream of having a teepee in my backyard, now i want one of these instead! Reply want!!!! Reply I totally dream of having a shed to house a workspace (and the land on which to build it). I would want more a combo writing/art studio. My husband and I actually discuss this fantasy fairly often. Someday… Reply I like my kids take on it. It looks like a haunted garden gnome house but, in the best way possible. Reply I love it but I wonder how you frame something like that? any ideas? Reply How do you get the shape of the roof to bend in that shape? 1 agrees Reply Great cottage houses. Really cool and awesome structures with perfect designs! loved it all. 1 agrees Reply I love these! We used tons of ReStore materials to build our fairy tale cottage as well! http://parcelandfrock.blogspot.com/2014/10/playhouse.html 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
