Micro-House-March: Day 1
Micro-House-March is upon us (or upon me, in any case). Actually, in my little world, every month is cause for celebrating efficient design, and, as this is a self-proclaimed and, otherwise arbitrary, event, you can either take it or leave it. If you choose to take it, you’ll be able to find 31 of the photos I’ve taken of little houses over the past two decades on this page (one image daily over the course of the next 31 days). Most of these are pictures that I’ve never shown before, and the remaining handful have made their way into my book or previous posts.
About a month ago Tedd Benson and his crew at Bensonwood Homes took me out to see this little house they built right down the road from their factory in Walpole New Hampshire. These guys built a faithful replica of Henry Thoreau’s cabin at Walden Pond and decided to do this fancy stone version back home as well.
NOTE: Micro-House-March is Jay Shafer’s month-long celebration of beautiful and efficient home design. For the 31 days of March, Jay will be posting a photo per day from his tiny house travels. Most of these pictures have never been published before. The majority of the photos will not be accompanied by interior photographs, since they were taken during travel, not interior tours. These are not Four Lights Tiny House Company designs. You can see the entire list of Micro-House-March posts HERE.
