My new homestead!

ohiohomesteadJanuary 26, 2014

Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and currently in the process of building my little homestead cabin. I'm actually currently in the process of planning a greenhouse, which I'd love some input on if you would be so kind as to head over to the greenhouse forum.

It's a 32x12ft building with 10ft sidewalls to make it feel a bit bigger. Currently, the shell is complete, but we(my father and uncle are helping) are currently in the process of finishing the interior. Once the electric and plumbing go in, we'll start on the walls and flooring. Here's a few photos of what I've got so far!

Just realizing that it will only allow one photo per post, so this is pre-porch railing the day it went up. The plan is to distress/whitewash the cabin to make it look a bit more dated. I'll also be replacing the front door shortly with something a little more appropriate, hah.

And from the loft(12x9). The loft will be my bedroom and the underpart will be the bathroom/utility room.

This is a basic floor plan I had made for it. I think I'm just going to make the Utility/Bathroom into one room and the plan is in reverse from what it will actually be. As stated, the greenhouse is what I'm currently trying to figure out. I'd love it to be an open part of the home(how earth ships are often utilized), but am afraid of how moisture will effect the home's structure.

I live in Ohio and was so excited to come across this site. I want a tiny home. I love this design and idea. I'm looking forward to seeing the progress.
