This home tour features a tiny farmhouse I found on Houzz. The little house is where Designer Jessica Helgerson lived with her family for four years while building their future home. For a family of four, thankfully the inside is redesigned for maximum space efficiency.
If you like Farmhouse style, this tiny gem is full of shabby chic and small space living ideas. My favorite is all the white-painted shiplap. Take a look!
The old roof was replaced with moss and ferns gathered from the Columbia River Gorge near Portland. There is a real roof under the moss and ferns. The green roof is said to protect the roofing from wear and tear.
Their living room sofas double as twin beds for guests and drawers under the sofas are used for extra storage. It is so clever how they built the low to the floor sofas around the windows.
The tiny farmhouse kitchen floors are white oak and the dining table was made from salvaged walnut. The rooms are farmhouse dreamy with white shiplap walls and ceilings.
A cute vintage range in the kitchen was a Craigslist find. Amazingly, the black wood burning stove heats the entire house. I fell in love with the kitchen as soon as I laid eyes on the contrasting wood wall.
A cozy loft where the parent’s sleep was created above the lower bedroom and bathroom that have low ceilings.
The children’s room has two bunk beds and a full bed for guests. Plus a pull out closet creates more space for their bedroom.
Everybody gets a bath.
I didn’t see a laundry room but that doesn’t mean there isn’t one. All this little white farmhouse cuteness sits on five acres on Sauvie Island near Portland.
It looks like Jessica and her family are living a nice life while building their other home.
If you see furniture or fixtures you like in this tiny farmhouse, go on Houzz, by clicking any photo, and they very often have tags on the photos to show you where to buy an item.
What a cool house!
Portland is a really cool city. My mother was born there and I grew up visiting my grandmother there during the summer.
Sofas are also window seats. I saw that, but it just didn’t hit me until you mentioned it. That’s what I like about you.
My favorite is the sofa that doubles/triples as a window seat too! Great find.
I think about shiplap a lot lately and have a few places I want to put it.
What an awesome find, Sue! I just love the entire home from the roof to the walls and floors. What a great idea for a tub in the bath too. It’s so inspiring. I’d love to do some white shiplap on my walls now too!
