2013 Detached Outbuilding

This could be called a tiny whole house remodel, with an addition. The main log structure was built in the mid-1800s as a smokehouse, for curing meat. It was moved once in the 1950s, becoming an office. We deconstructed and moved it again, keeping the roof structure intact. We built a new foundation, chimney and porch, and added a bathroom and mechanical equipment. Burying the electric service helped to maintain the historic feel. Although it feels bigger because of the open ceiling, the finished building is a cozy 288 square feet, with all the amenities.
