The cutest tiny Lake House that would almost make me leave MT

Brady’s job is really annoying. But he’s not interested in switching professions. So we are always tossing around the idea of re-locating to make our lives easier.
This will probably never happen. But we like to keep up with the housing markets in the areas he could move to. This sweet little lake house popped up the other day and it makes me seriously consider making the move. I mean it’s just so cute..

Care to see my day dreaming plans for this house?

We wouldn’t want to sink too much money into it as we wouldn’t be there too long and we aren’t comfortable spending a fortune in a town we aren’t familiar with.  So we would likely keep the beige vinyl.  But deep down, I’d love to have vertical siding.

Black shingles on the majority of the house with Metal over the front porch.

Buy a boat.  Live on the lake.  Sounds good to me..

Look at the original farm sink.  UGH! It’s just so cute.

I’d work with the existing kitchen as much as possible.  Fresh paint, open shelving, vintage tile, new flooring.

Have you ever seen such a cute old kitchen?  We would for sure have to add a Smeg fridge.

The dining room is pretty big for such a small house.

I’d build a banquette in this nook with tons of built in storage.

PS if you’re into tiny house living, you have to follow this account on Instagram.  It totally inspires me.

And don’t forget a gorgeous rattan lamp.

The living room is teeny tiny.

We would keep the fireplace.  Seems like the right thing to do in a lake house!

This weird narrow area looks out the sliding glass doors to the lake.  Insert comfy chairs here.

This Instagram account is also pretty inspiring.  He utilizes his small space pretty impressively.

The bathroom was recently re done but it’s not my favorite.

I suppose with some new hardware I could survive.

Why not re-tile this entire bathroom and ditch the tub insert.  Then make it a wet room.

Build some cabinets around the washer and dryer.  Make this a usable family room.

Finish this space.  Make it a playroom.

That’s all.  Also, this home is in North Dakota… I’ve never been but I hear it’s a bit… umm.. lame.  If you’re familiar, let me know!  Would you ever leave MT for ND?
