    Two bedrooms and one bath, an IKEA kitchen, and a living room surrounded by the owner’s own handmade storage and objects make up the most asked-about modified weeHouse by Alchemy. At 756 SF, the house’s rooftop deck adjoins a guest room and features an exterior (only) site-built stair access. Located near Lake Superior in Northern Minnesota, the red stained pine “Corncrib” siding was inspired by local wood cabins and the image of a tugboat. Maple floors, IKEA birch and white cabinets, owners own handwork make this a great weekend, seasonal get-a-way for a family of five. The cost in 2005 was $165,000 complete.
