Throughout, a polished-concrete floor and scatter rugs keep it easy to clean, ideal for a rental cottage. The longevity of polished concrete makes it a green choice. No carpets to be thrown into landfill every ten years.

You can barely glimpse Black Shed house here, below the white farmhouse. You can rent it, here.

What a surprise the very chic industrial interior would make in this vast and lonely rural setting.
