Hereabouts B&B – Tiny House, Big on Comfort and Charm
Most folks have heard of the tiny house – usually not more than 250 square feet, designed to provide all the creature comforts for living, dining, sleeping, and cleansing. And cute as a bug’s ear. They appeal to those looking to do some serious downsizing, finding a piece of land to park it on, lowering their footprint, or as an alternative to your traditional RV. Have house, will travel. Or in this case, as a B&B in your own back yard.
Nourishing the dream
Jackie and Bryan Skrypnek, high school sweethearts, are long-time Cochrane residents. A holistic nutritionist, gardener, and permaculture practitioner, Jackie is devoted to regenerative living and growing, preparing, and eating whole food. The idea of a tiny house B&B seemed like a natural next step. Husband Bryan, a journeyman carpenter, set to work to bring the dream to life. The quality of the space is exceptional, with unique features such as passive solar design – and it is beautifully furnished and decorated.
The best of bed and breakfast
“We feel that Hereabouts B&B is a great way to showcase a small footprint dwelling, and provides the opportunity to share our special urban space with our guests,” says Jackie. “A lot of care also goes into the breakfasts. The quality of ingredients is the same as what we eat ourselves with a focus on whole, seasonal and often organic, using produce we grow in our own garden,” she adds. “To get a fresh, homemade breakfast that is both nourishing and delicious delivered to their door is a rare thing and something guests truly appreciate.”
