Rustic style with a modern twist creates a bucolic oasis in this Maine-inspired tiny home

Named to reflect Maine's rugged beauty, the Acadia is a 24-foot tiny home crafted by Chattanooga, Tennessee-based Wind River Tiny Homes. Inside, rustic styling gets a modern twist with industrial furnishings — such as charming Mason jar lights.
To the rear of the house, a large exterior closet accommodates the breaker box and electric tankless water heater and offers a lot of space to store gear, so residents can get out and enjoy the great outdoors. All said, the model is one of Windy River's most affordable to date and is turn-key for $56,500.

Rustic timber and cedar shake lend cabin style to the exterior, defined by a classic gabled roof. An orange front door pops against forest-green siding. Meanwhile, maxed-out dormers create extra loft space inside.
Near the entry, a custom storage sofa creates a cozy seating space. Oak hardwood floors complement white shiplap siding and contrasting wood trim. Above, a tiny fan hangs from the natural pine ceiling for air circulation.
Across from the seating area, a fold-down table offers dining space for two. Country-style Mason jar lights lend a rustic accent throughout the home.
In the kitchen, butcher block countertops hold a Summit stovetop and stainless steel basin sink with high-neck faucet. A custom spice rack offers both a unique design accent and smart storage solution. Open shelving and minimal Shaker cabinetry stash culinary items in style. Above the prep counter and fridge, an espresso-stained ladder provides access to the roomy sleeping loft.
A slim pocket door leads to the bathroom, which features a sleek white vanity and sink with brushed nickel fixtures. Above, exposed Edison bulbs offer industrial lighting on white shiplap siding.

Brushed-nickel fixtures accent gray concrete tile in the shower, and dark gray glass tiles create a geometric accent strip. The bathroom also features a Nature's Head composting toilet for off-the-grid living.

Starting with a boxy, 16-feet long prototype, Lumec -- duly encouraged -- went ahead and built this 23-feet long miro-shelter with many features.

Tiny homes are houses on a smaller scale. Every space must be used efficiently, but that doesn't mean homeowners can't have a touch of elegance.
