Garden House on the Oregon Coast

You know I love the coast! It’s the place I go to recharge and regroup in the quiet and peace of my beach cottage.

When I discovered this tiny, garden home on the Oregon coast, designed by architect, Obie Bowman, I knew I had to share it with you.

This little gem of a home measured 325 sq. ft., is completely off the grid and built using recycled and reclaimed materials – gotta love that! With many environmental systems in place, this small residence is low maintenance and superbly green.

Let’s go on a tour shall we?Isn’t it lovely?

Right now, it serves its owner as a guest house and writing studio – I think I could definitely pen a couple of worthy books sitting in this light filled home on the ocean!
