Wordsmith Charles Finn Builds Peaceful Microhomes from Reclaimed Materials
Finn’s first foray into micro home construction was called the Potomac Cabin and featured a five foot loft, from which his cat 42 stared out into the landscape. He built a second just like it, which sold very quickly at a farmer’s market in Missoula, Tiny House Swoon reports. Now he builds them fairly regularly – each with its own style and material palette.
One customer, Lori, purchased a delightful little cabin with a wood-fired stove, a fairytale bedroom, and a perfectly-stocked kitchen. On his blog A room of one’s own, Finn posted a short story Lori penned about her special retreat.
“What I notice most since I began visiting 7 years ago is that I can no longer abide noise – white noise especially. Trains, traffic, tv, clanging pipes, forced air heaters, most electric gadgets, ticking clocks, dripping faucets, buzzing space heaters…my cabin has none of it. I have traded them all in for; a crackling fire on a cold Montana winter’s night, the creek outside the door, a caroling coyote chorus running about the valley, a multitude of birds, and occasionally my dog going ballistic at an errant mouse up in the ceiling.”
With prices ranging from $14,000 to $22,000 depending on the size, materials and complexity of design, Finn’s cabins boast a rustic touch while still providing all of the necessities required by people who yearn for the simple life.
