Bonners Ferry, ID // 240 Sq Ft // $375,000 (2023)

Tucked away in the picturesque North Idaho Panhandle lies a unique haven of sustainable living — a beautifully crafted tiny home. This delightful dwelling boasts an impressive array of energy-efficient features, allowing it to blend seamlessly into its serene, 10-acre woodland surroundings, while also commanding striking views across the river, valley, and Selkirk Mountains.

The home's exterior is an enchanting mix of cedar siding and hickory flooring. The interior, graced with knotty pine walls and ceilings, brings nature indoors. The inviting kitchen space — with its butcher block counters and a convenient breakfast bar — epitomizes a compact yet functional design. Sunlight filters through the skylights, enhancing the bright, open-plan living space and offering a glimpse into the home's two cozy sleeping lofts. 

A small, efficient wood stove sits centrally, promising warm and snug winter nights, while a versatile washer-dryer unit testifies to the home's modern conveniences. The bathroom is another marvel of sustainable design, complete with a composting toilet, a tiled shower, and an on-demand hot water system.

The tiny home's remarkable sustainability extends to its energy supply, too. Propane forced-air heating partners with a six-panel solar package to deliver reliable, eco-friendly power. A private, 20-gallon-per-minute well, equipped with a pump and in-ground gray water system, ensures a sustainable water supply.

 The home made warmer and more energy-efficient by wool insulation, is also fully connected, thanks to the provision of high-speed internet. Even more exciting is the potential for expansion, with multiple building sites dotted across the property. These could provide space for a larger home or extra accommodations for visitors.

In addition to the tiny home, the property also hosts a chicken coop and a handy 20-foot shipping container. It's an enticing spot, just a stone's throw away from the Moyie River, numerous prime fishing spots, and acres of public lands ripe for exploration. Ultimately, this tiny home offers a lesson in living sustainably without sacrificing comfort or disconnecting from the natural world — a perfect blend of modern living and nature's tranquility.
