From the outside, it's a restored tobacco barn. Slide open the door and there's a 400 square ft all season, carpeted, insulated, great room with grid power, fully provisioned kitchen, queen bed, futon, sleeping loft with twin, lots of windows & huge porch.

In 2008, we restored this old tobacco barn, pouring a new foundation, replacing the roof, and building what is essentially a modern one-room tiny house inside. I've not seen anything like it and probably never will because it made zero economic sense!

There's a queen bed, futon and sleeping loft that can sleep up to six. In warm weather, a giant porch overlooking a robust creek could easily accommodate another four sleepers in bags.

There's a private shower room (hot & cold) with a space heater, an outdoor kitchen with hot & cold running water & a propane barbecue, a play loft way up in the rafters near where a barn owl occasionally perches.

There's a composting toilet in an outhouse up the hill (we use the humanure system) which is shared with the cabin (the cabin can be rented with the barn  economically  which gives you the entire property). There's also a one of kind treehouse with a human size bird's nest on top, 1 linear mile of private hiking trails, firepit, fruit and nut trees, and a meadow with a 1952 Ford 8n tractor (more art than functional).
