The Lupine is a legacy Wind River project from 2018 built on a 32’ Gooseneck trailer. This home is now situated on a 100+ acre property in Virginia near an old rock quarry that provides incredible mountaintop views. The exterior design is sleek and simple, with a single pitch roof and LP SmartSide lap siding painted Black Fox by Sherwin Williams. This tiny home has 2 entry doors—a regular single door on the low side of the roof pitch and sliding glass doors on the high side. The low side of the home with the no-light single door is plain. This was purposeful to make the entry into the Lupine more evocative.
When entering the home, you are immediately met with a wall full of windows overlooking a brow view of the mountains. The hardwood floor and ceiling are a dark, warm wood that contrast the soft white of the shiplap walls and flow seamlessly with the dark butcher block countertops, which continue over the edge of the peninsula in a “waterfall” to meet the floor. An accented pocket door to the bathroom adds a pop of color in a soft sky blue. The bathroom has a warm, spa feel with natural wood and deep charcoal tile. Over the hitch end, the bedroom fits a queen bed underneath a skylight for stargazing.
