260 Sq. Ft. Tiny Cabin on a Dairy Farm

This tiny cabin is on the Pt. Reyes peninsula along the Northern California coast.

It’s a 260 square foot building designed to support a large group of children for a yearly family summer camp.

The cottage is on a dairy farm and has a fun and yet traditional vibe that expresses the rural setting of the land.

Most of the materials used are non-corrosive and resistant to wear like the galvanized sheet metal on the roof, the batt siding, and painted plywood.

    Is there a way to turn off the pop ups? I open and read every TH newsletter that shows up – and I want to continue to enjoy the newsletter – and the popups are really, really annoying. Where is the off sw?

      Agreed, especially the intrusive signup box that appears immediately after clicking on the article links in our e-mail. For the reason that we already get the messages, we’re already subscribed. Save the popup box only for those new to the site.

    Not a hell of a lot do dislike I like the stark white of this place.

    • Cosy April 18, 2014, 11:43 am

      I like the white too. A nice change from wood tones that are a bit rustic for my taste.

    Oh my… This is one of the most adorable tiny houses I have ever seen. LOVE the white. The front porch is very inviting. The location of being on a dairy farm in Pt. Reyes is what I consider a perfect piece of real estate. This home has to be one of my all time favorites. I would prefer this home to a Tumbleweed ANY day. Great job.

    Awe this is it my love can you build this for us!! I like the outside the colors white and red. I think I would take some of the other ideas but I know you are very good at putting the whole house tighter. ok

  • Cathy April 18, 2014, 9:06 am

    This is one of my favorites. And yes, the location makes it perfect.

  • Curry April 19, 2014, 1:34 pm

    I love the porch and the white interior makes it seem more airy and spacious. I could really imagine enjoying living in something similar to this:)

  • Mary Caley August 28, 2014, 9:18 pm

    Who could ask for more?

    • Steve in Palm Bay June 2, 2015, 6:00 am

      I could ask for more…..more pics and a floorplan….it does indeed look very nice…..but without more pics we are left to guess.

      I do like the front porch a lot….reminds me of the old Bartles and Jaymes commercials…..:-))

  • Karen R June 2, 2015, 12:03 pm

    I have to agree that the more photos, the better. Also, I always look for a floor plan, but I understand these aren’t always available.

  • Katherine Templer June 3, 2015, 11:46 am

    I would love this little house if only I had the money and land or plot it looks like its perfect for disabled senior me.

  • Gigi June 2, 2016, 11:22 pm

    A sweet place to call home. I like the way the little house fits right into its farm location. A few more pictures of the interior would be welcome. Their website shows that this architectural firm has designed some beautiful, quality homes.

  • Diane Gray April 29, 2018, 7:52 pm

    Light, bright, and cheerful! Curious about the bathrooms and how that’s configured. Otherwise, it makes you happy to see it!
