her work is all over pinterest, martha stewart has her on the radar, and she has won plenty of awards for her work.
based in portland, helgerson is slowly transforming vintage homes into reclaimed, high-efficiency abodes.
her talent of using small spaces and creating timeless homes is amazing.
one of my favorite blogs, birch and bird featured her tiny house yesterday so i thought i would spread the love.
This little house is where Jessica and her family have been living for the last several years. It sits on a five-acre property on Sauvie Island, an agricultural island on the Columbia River 15 minutes north of Portland.
The house is an interesting experiment in reduction and reuse not only because it is only 540 square feet or because it was remodeled using nearly exclusively reclaimed materials, but because the building itself is now being recycled for the fourth time.
the home screams simplistic chic.
blake and i are always talking about when we have a lot of money people won't know it by the size of our home and our children won't know it either.
we want to create a home where what goes on inside it's walls is more rich and abundant than how much was spent on it.
i think it is important to teach your children that money doesn't make you happy.
now if only i could talk california into thinking the same thing.
when we move there this motto won't be a choice!
tiny house or bust!
the best things in life aren't things and i believe helgerson has captured the very essence of that.
