I recently had the opportunity to go to the Cashiers Designer Showhouse in Cashiers, North Carolina, and I was so thankful to go! Now, I get to show you an exclusive look at the Cashiers Designer Showhouse and Clayton's new Designer Series Tiny Homes.
Welcome to the new Tiny Home!
Cashiers's weather was quite an improvement from East Tennessee, and I loved meeting some of the gentlemen behind Clayton’s new Designer Series tiny homes. The Cashiers Historical Society invited us, along with designers across the South East, to contribute design and décor to the Burt Farm.
This was the pond right by the Low Country Tiny Home
And what a stunning setting for an exclusive sneak peak of Clayton Designer Series tiny homes! My job at this show was to answer questions about the Low Country model, which was designed by Jeffrey Dungan.
The Low Country settled into the woods
The Low Country’s porch was the perfect spot to watch fish leap out of the pond water, and the view from the living room made a rainy Sunday feel cozy. With poplar bark siding sourced from the local North Carolina area, the Low Country felt like it was made to be in Cashiers.
Between the moss covered ground, trout-filled pond and cool woods, I thought it’d be a great hunting or hiking getaway home!
When I first walked in, I realized how open the Low Country tiny home felt despite its small size. Large casement windows on either side of the living room let plenty of light in, and the lofty ceiling combined with whitewashed shiplap wall boards disguised the actual size of the space.
The home decorators strategically placed two high back chairs and a full-sized sofa in the living room, showing off how spacious the living room actually was.
The kitchen surprisingly had more counter space than the apartment I live in! It also had specialty, down-sized appliances from Summit Appliance® that made me feel like I was walking through a dollhouse.
The fridge came with a freezer and the small range had all four burners, even though both were scaled down to fit the tiny home’s kitchen. The gleaming quartz countertops tied into the airy feeling in the living room and contrasted nicely with the dark cabinet finishing.
The bathroom was about the same size of my apartment bathroom, except without a tub in the shower. The tiny house's shower had all ceramic tiling that was stunning and made the space seem much larger.
I was told that the bedroom could fit a full or double bed. I didn’t doubt its ability to fit the width of a double bed, but I wasn’t sure if I could access the desk or closets once I placed a bed in the master bedroom. A visitor suggested a murphy bed for the room, which would be a bed that could fold up against the wall and be repurposed for something else.
While I was in Cashiers answering questions about Clayton’s new tiny home, I made sure to visit the home show, too.
The Burt Farm Home Show
The home show itself was incredibly luxurious. A common theme seen in designers’ styling in both the Burt Farm home and in the Low Country was using white and grey tones.
Crisp white pieces balanced dark accents and opened up tighter spaces throughout the home.
White never felt boring in the mountains of North Carolina because of the lush green surroundings. It felt fresh, classic and lovely.
There are other beautiful tiny homes on the way, too, that incorporate aspects of different parts of the United States in their elegant, tiny designs. The Low Country tiny home felt like it was made for the North Carolina woods, but other homes like the Saltbox tiny home seem designed for other areas of the U.S.
