When we designed our log home,
we tried to keep a similar footprint as the home that was previously there.
That home had a garage that was detached from the house
and at a 45 degree angle to the house.
Our log home incorporates that oddly shaped space that used to lie
between the house and garage...
and in this triangular space is our kitchen, pantry, laundry room,
and a small bathroom.
Our kitchen is an odd shape....sort of a trapezoid.
The pantry is a trapezoid.
The laundry room is a rectangle.
And the space left over that we turned into a bathroom is a triangle.
Try fitting a sink and toilet into a small triangle.
It's a bit of a challenge.
Not wanting to waste any precious space, we rose to the challenge
and had a cabinet and countertop custom built to fit into a triangular corner.
We had a small wall built across the top angle of the triangle
and placed the toilet there.
Did you really want to know everything there is to know about our tiny bathroom?
But, it serves as an introduction to explain why these photos show such a wonky space.
The reason for the photos?
I just finished this rug from...
the last of the core spun wool from Grace, Hope and Faith....
a forever keepsake...
