03/28 Seven Tiny Houses in Ithaca, NY

Karen's tiny house in Ithaca, N.Y.

Karen lived in the Loft building for two years before building her own home on site at Karenville, Ithaca, N.Y.

Karenville features off-the-grid, tiny house living, it harkens to a simpler time before electricity and indoor plumbing. Karenville offers camping in seven tiny houses Karen has built herself. She also lived in two of the structures before building her current tiny log cabin home. The pitch dark nights allow for excellent star-gazing through the many windows.

The charm is felt when visitors are forced to do simple tasks such as taking a shower. Guests must first source their water from rain barrels or a well, heat it on the wood stove in the general store and then pour it into the outdoor shower bucket. One bucket equals a 3-to-5 minute shower.

The uniqueness of being able to enjoy Karen’s artwork and vision by living it is a one-of-a-kind experience.
