Jumpstart Your Day: A Japanese Forest House

This hidden sanctuary was built using sourced and salvaged materials found by the owner

Shares

Inspired by Japanese minka homes, this forest house is a calming retreat that measures only 14 by 16 foot. The materials used to build it were sourced and collected by the owner from his trips to the bay and from areas around the house. He simply wanted to know how small of a house he could make feel big.

Money spent on the home were allotted for concrete and insulation, to name a few. The tables found in the space were fashioned out of wood cut from cedar found on the beach. The photo shows the cozy living area that welcomes guests into the home. Huge windows and comfy pillows ensure a relaxing and comfortable stay.
