This converted schoolhouse puts a new spin on the tiny home trend. The 1900s one-room schoolhouse, aptly dubbed The Little Red School House, gives off the feel of an older era. The Spokane, Wash. home was recently renovated into a cozy country home with lots of classroom style.
It used to be known as the Occident School, but has received a major facelift, as evident by its fresh, red exterior paint job.
As soon as you enter the home, you feel like you’re stepping back in time with the simple, white shiplap walls and ceiling.
Inside, the owners maintained the schoolhouse theme. The home is filled with chalkboards, maps and punches of red.
The main room (which is basically the whole house) is where you’ll find two sitting areas, the stove and oven and a dining table.
Behind a fold-away partition is the bedroom. The area has a single twin bed and the home’s signature decor piece, a chalkboard. There is also a guest house on the property with a queen bed and sitting area.
While the oven is in the main room, there’s a tiny kitchen in a gallery off to the side of the sitting area. It’s a charming space with white cabinetry and open shelving.
This converted schoolhouse may only be one-room, but its unique flair and history make it a truly special space.
