Restoration of a Tiny House by the Sea

The idea of spending time in a tiny house by the sea, away from it all, sounds romantic to me! This tiny house is a great little restoration project that I enjoyed reading about. I hope you enjoy it too!

The location of this tiny house by the sea is rugged McNutt Island in Nova Scotia.


tiny house before restoration
The house had a previous life as a fish shed. It was restored to be a guest house by Anne and her husband who lived on the island for four years. They blogged about it here and have written a book about their secluded island adventure too.

Ready for the tour? It's an easy one for sure. This tiny house measures a whopping eight feet in width and twelve feet in length. All you have to do is stand in one place and look around!

tiny house interiors
The things they discovered in the abode, such as lobster buoys, tools, and old lanterns have become decorations. The desk was in the main house and may have once been the desk for the island post office.

And there was plenty of room for a comfy queen-sized bed! To read more, head over to the Tiny House Blog!

They wrote a lovely little book about their experiences on MacNutt that I really enjoyed.
