We met up with our friends Larissa and Patrick on Beaver Island. They live there in the summer, with their two boys, and their house just so happens to be my dream home.
Here are some pictures:
The kitchen, with a gravity-feed water system, that they refill in town.
The couch (which converts to a bed) across from the kitchen.
The loft, where the kids sleep.
Larissa made the tiles on the countertop herself.
The house runs on a 12-volt battery, which is charged by the solar panels. Occasionally, they take a battery into town to charge it as well.
We really enjoyed seeing our friends again, and I can’t help but wish that we could trade houses…
