Pic(k) of the Week: Hop-lights at the Brewmaster's Cottage

Hop lights at Brewmaster's Cottage (04)

The Brewmaster's Cottage is a beer-themed 800-square foot tiny house built by renowned 'craft' beer brewmaster Teri Fehrendorf —founder of the Pink Boots Society— and her husband, Jon Graber, in Portland, Oregon.
The cottage can sleep 4 adults: The upstairs includes a master suite with king bed, walk-in closet, double sink bath, and a sunrise view deck. Downstairs there is a queen murphy-bed desk made by Hidden Bed of Oregon. Our goal with the Brewmaster's Cottage was to create something Unique, Meaningful and Beautiful. I also wanted the space to be Magical, and we have strived to build something so special you will not find a copy anywhere. In addition to the added architectural features such as a foyer with tile floor, mini-chandelier, corbelled hop archway, and steps that double as dresser drawers; the cottage also contains two fluted pilasters, lighted box display cases over the downstairs windows containing my cobalt blue glass collection, a built-in bookcase, and ...
