A Remodel Project You Don’t Want to Miss….
This glorious traditional white cottage was probably lovely enough back in its day, but has since been given a jaw-dropping remodel. Located on a pretty green piece of land on Sauvie Island near Portland, Oregon, it has a charming green roof for perfect insulation and that also blends well with the green nature surrounding it. The tiny house remodel utilized reclaimed material, although it almost looks intentionally weathered, as you may know that’s a big trend right now. But rest assured, this is the real deal…. it’s perfect in its imperfections. Take a look through these photos, then tell us what you think on our facebook page!
This little house is where Jessica and her family have been living for the last several years. It sits on a five-acre property on Sauvie Island, an agricultural island on the Columbia River 15 minutes north of Portland. New high-efficiency windows come right down to the sofas and offer a fun way for kids and cats to enter and exit the house. The walls were insulated, then faced in reclaimed wood siding, most of which was found on site in one of the barns. The new floors are local Oregon white oak, and the dining table was made from locally salvaged walnut. The green roof offers insulation as well as a playful visual counterpoint to the traditional white cottage. Despite its size, the house is welcoming and comfortable and nearly every weekend it is full of family and friends coming from Portland to enjoy a day in the countryside.
