The trending minimalist lifestyle has encouraged lots of people to move into tiny homes, and Richard Aiken is no exception. The nature lover started with a $100 shack and turned it into a beautiful home! See what he did and maybe it'll inspire you to do the same!
1. Some Good And Bad News
Though the 300-square-foot cabin was located in a beautiful forest as Aiken wanted, it was abandoned for 40 years. It took him a year to remove the debris and renovate the house, but it was all worth the effort. You'll see why when you take a closer look!
2. A Brand-New Home
The shabby cabin was transformed into a vacation home! Check out the inside and you'll be surprised by the brand-new layout!
3. The Living Room
The cabin has been transformed into a lovely home! Step inside and you can see a living room with 2 sofas. The wooden structure also adds a rustic vibe to the entire space, including the open kitchen in the corner!
4. The Kitchen
The kitchen provides sufficient storage to keep everything organized. Plus, from the refrigerator to the wooden window frame, this area just transports us back to our simple childhood years.
5. The Dining Area
Opposite the kitchen is a dining area. It feels extra cozy with sunlight streaming through the window.
6. The Bathroom
Atkin also goes for a homely feel for the adjacent bathroom to match the aesthetics of the cabin. Surprisingly, the different shades of brown have offset the brightness of white.
7. The Attic
The attic upstairs is all about comfort and warmth. The sloped ceilings create a feeling of privacy and intimacy without cramping the space.
8. Do It Yourself!
Tiny homes offer an affordable and simple lifestyle. Try to build or purchase one of your own!
