Greetings from Texas! 🙂
We here at The Casa Club love nothing more than when a home designer takes an idea and injects it with some rustic soul and flavor. This is one of the main tricks behind getting the most out of a small home or tiny cabin, and it is incredibly refreshing to see.
We think that the designers of The Little Red Hen cabin have done exactly this. With so much to look at and enjoy in a small package, it’s no wonder the end result is so beautifully functional and cozy.
The exterior of this tiny cabin is something to behold. The panelling on both the inside and outside is made from 100 year old wood that was reclaimed from a barn in Waco, Texas. The heart of this wood remains intact and has resulted in the beautifully rustic look and feel of this tiny cabin.
While the exterior is incredibly charming, the interior is the real star of the show. That same reclaimed wood lines the walls of the inside and provides a uniquely patterned color scheme that is immediately eye catching. The builders of this tiny cabin have put a lot of work into every detail and it is apparent right away.
One of those details is the beams that run along the ceiling in the living area. One of the best ways to give the illusion of space and height is to add beams like this. We think that they do a great job of making the occupants feel like there is more overhead space than there actually is, and that is key in any tiny cabin project.
Perhaps the thing that this tiny cabin does best is pack a lot of functionality into a small area. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the main living area. We can hardly believe that there is room for a kitchen, breakfast bar and sitting room all in one small space. However, it manages to feel big enough to move around in without getting cramped.
The hardwood flooring and panelling is just so endearing and has a feel of rustic charm throughout every inch. The way the kitchen table extends out from the breakfast bar is incredibly clever and manages to leave enough room to move around to the front door.
One of the things this tiny cabin does extremely well is use color and contrast to create a roomy feeling. This is especially highlighted in the kitchen. The natural color of the reclaimed wood countertops contrasts perfectly with the white walls. This gives the small kitchen a nice, open feel without sacrificing any of the coziness.
The real centerpiece of the living area is the sliding barn door of the bathroom. This is a charming nod to the original home of the wood that lines the interior and exterior. We love these simple design touches that go a long way towards creating something that is both unique and functional.
Up the small staircase, there is a second level to this cozy tiny cabin. This second level contains a luxury bedroom painted all white with an accent wall that references the reclaimed wood of the downstairs living area. With plenty of windows and natural light, this is a beautifully decorated section of the tiny cabin that we think is perfect for vacations and weekend getaways.
As if there wasn’t enough charm on the inside, the exterior features a small front porch with two rocking chairs for enjoying the Waco sunshine. This, along with the window mounted planter boxes, makes for a beautifully rustic country experience with all the comforts of a modern vacation rental.
The Little Red Hen is just such a charming cabin!
