If you like rustic design and you are fascinated by tiny houses which incorporate a lot of lovely details, you will be impressed with the work of Rustic Campers. One great example of this tiny house designer’s awesome skill is the Reid’s Retreat.
The deep red hue of the siding and the green and yellow paint used on the doors immediately grabs your attention. A wide porch offers lots of outdoor space. To me, this house is evocative of an old-fashioned boxcar. As someone who read every Boxcar Children book as a kid, this has a special appeal to me.
I love this raised walkway through the bracken. The natural railing is awesome, as is the fact that the vegetation has been left alone to continue to grow wild.
From this shot, I would ay that the red paint used on the house is a bit brighter and more vibrant than it initially appeared in the other photos. I think I like it even more now.
This layout is a bit different from other houses I’ve seen by Rustic Campers. There are two twin beds here, one of which is located in a little “loft.” Essentially this is a glorified bunk bed.
A simple, straightforward approach is taken with the kitchen. We have a counter with some drawers and storage space underneath, and plenty of shelving overhead.
The sink basin is small, but small is sometimes all you need. At least it does not consume all the counter space.
What a cozy place to sit and enjoy a good book, or just take a nice long afternoon nap.
There is a lot of storage underneath the couch. You can see that is roomy enough that it would function comfortably as a bed for a full-time occupant or a guest.
While the colors inside the tiny house are a lot more subdued than the bright hues used on the exterior, they do help keep the space from feeling cluttered.
I’m not totally clear on the purpose of the curtain. I like how the table (which I assume is collapsible) blends in with the wall though.
Here is a better view of the rust-red siding. It has an industrial look to it, and it is corrugated. No wonder it made me think of a boxcar.
Some hanging storage is provided for jackets, purses, hats, and so on.
This little round table has one flat side so that it can stand flush against the wall. I definitely think it is among the most charming features of the house, especially with that adorable little teacup holder!
I love how the top bunk has some privacy since it is largely walled in. A curtain can be pulled across the entrance. Also be sure to admire the shelves on the left.
Here is a look inside the top bed. I think it is cool how it is inspired by the idea of a loft, but really is just a bunk.
I really like the fur placed over the chairs. Those look so much more comfortable than regular deck chairs!
The corrugated roof on the outhouse complements the corrugated siding on the main structure.
It is the bright colors which stand out in this photo—the yellow doors, and the colorful knobs on the drawers in the kitchen.
The contrast between the red and the yellow is vivid and startling.
It really is cool how well this house is secreted away amid the foliage. It provides privacy and keeps the home’s owner in touch with the natural world.
What an amazing spot this would be to enjoy daily meals.
As is typical with Rustic Campers, it is the little vintage details which make this house so amazing.
