How much on average…with plumbing run to it and electrical set up…does one cost…and then of course the land…..
Very nice!…clean and crisp design
Not too sure about the cabinet over the stove…
Could the cab over the range house the ever so necessary powered exhaust fan, desperately required to vent cooking odors and moisture to the exterior. Surely, that must be it.
It could, but it doesn’t. An examination of the picture enlarged shows no evidence of an extractor or its filter.
If I was going to worry about something over the stove, it would be the frilly white curtains on that window to the left more than the cabinet… very awkward placement…
With all that natural light, the paint on the walls could’ve easily been more colorful. (All white interiors are getting me down.)
I, too, used to think that way about all white paint. But after 5 years in an all white walled apartment I have learned to use color in furniture, carpets and wall decorations that make the place more cozy.
A really good example that you can have almost all you need in a small space. 400 sf my minimum. I like the shingles–classy ups any structure instantly–and I would let it go grey. White interior–perfect for small spaces. Cathedral ceiling adds the sence of space and volume. Room for your barca lounger and big screen tv. To simplify more I would make it a simple rectangle (cheaper to frame) but would make the extended area a good size shower in the bathroom. Normal size appliances, room to cook. Too small for a woodbuning stove–but a fireplace insert would be perfect. I also like the overhang protecting the windows and letting one use the deck during inclament weather. This could be very inexpensive to build or buy pre-fab. Add the decks later when you have more money. Vestibule would be great.
In fact, this would be a good time to mention that I would choose a floor plan so that the “core” could be easily added to in the future. Pour all your future foundations and slabs at the beginning (use as your deck or porch), and with careful planning from the beggining–you can remain in this house for many years by adding on as your family grows. Choose an “expandable” floor plan. Easily add prefab units–(after core paid off) (maybe 2br, bath, loft) in the future just by placing on already in-place foundations. Maybe even stack them–save on foundation and roofing. Ceiling fan to push heat down in cold climates–while in hot climates reverse and exhaust heat thru operable windows high up–maybe operable screened skylights. A basement doubles your square footage, serves as a storm shelter, storage, root cellar, garage, mechanicals (like a gas-operated boiler w/copper pipe baseboard heating–some people use one or more standard water tanks heaters for this, or even run copper tubing inside fireplace)… A lot to like here.
Shingles… classy. NOT!
In fact, where I come from the general consensus is…. tacky as.
Beautifully stunning house, a true gem….!
Nice place and presentation but not much use without cost data…
I know, no price. No pictures of bedroom either. Plus is it movable or you live there on property in the Cape?
it’s not suppose to have a bedroom . it’s a studio layout..
If you look at the schematic, you will see that basically, this is a one-room efficiency with an attached bathroom. Looking at the picture of the back of it, it seems to be built up and off the ground which might make it moveable. The size is roughly an 18.5 x 18.5, with the optical illusion of it being much bigger because of the decking. Massachusetts is a very expensive place to live (they call it Taxachusetts). My family once owned a home there that my father paid 18.5 for which is now valued at 1.2 million (because of its proximity to a lack which became a boating/fishing resort.) Also, unless you are really down with quiet living, there is nothing much to do out there on the Cape and the locals don’t warm easily to newbies.
Oops! That’s “lake”. Wish this blog had “edit”.
It sold in 2016 for $245k… and was originally built in 1950! Was, of course, modernised sometime prior to sale.
Suspect that this is a guest house or AirBnB type dealie. Lovely but for year round use on the Cape? Depends on the windows and insulation and is there a heat source.
Also pretty sure no one is easily picking this up and carting it around–looks pretty well anchored to me.
I don’t “get” the constant carping over how the blog owner does not have alllll the details like price etc–first off prices vary from different areas; the Cape for one is high priced and every thing has to be trucked or floated out there—Do your own homework!
It likely is a summer property. Although, many people do live full-time on Cape Cod depending. And it’s quite anchored! — Tiny House Talk Team
My tiny house is 12′ x 28′, mostly because I built on a trailer. It’s amazing how much more spacious a place can feel when you’re able to go 14 or 16 feet wide. Square footage between my own place and this one isn’t much difference, but this seems so much larger. I think the extended roof lines and large deck contribute to the sense of space too. Of course, the advantage to building on a trailer is you can avoid property taxes, and you have a mobile structure. Still pretty amazing to me what a couple extra feet can do in terms of layout though. I’ve seen some pretty stunning 400 ft.² layouts that start out as kind of square or slightly rectangular.
It’s a really beautiful design, and nicely decorated.
It’s so funny how all that changes our perspective. Glad you liked it! — Tiny House Talk Team
They have had their Microwave repoed, lol.
Where the second closet is near the fireplace I would put in a murphy bed. In kitchen take out one window and place window in the middle with sink under it and put in apartment size stove next to sink. The way they have it now is a fire waiting to happen.
Great ideas! — Tiny House Talk Team
Looks like some folks missed the woodstove in front of the faux fireplace/mantle.
I agree that posting the price on a permanent structure doesn’t really matter – it all depends on location. I’m sure this gem wasn’t cheap to build, it’s on Cape Cod.
If folks would click on the links Alex provides in his posts, many of your questions would be answered. In this case, click on the “small house bliss” link for history and pricing. This is a home on the Cape so it is going to be pricey compared to other areas of the country.
Thanks Nancy 🙂 We do try to make it easy for people to find out more info! — Tiny House Talk Team
Photos #10 and #11 appear to be two different kitchens.
I love the deck which greatly enlarges the “living space. The kitchen is a bit small, but well laid out — however, needs a fan over the stove. While I like the open look of the high ceiling it gets darn cold on the cape and even that small space is going to be hard to heat and what do you do for sleeping?, throw an air mattress and sleeping bag on the floor — I think they should have lofted it, but that is just me. Over all I really do like it and one could easily make modifications to it. I love the look of the outside and the space inside is used and decorated well.
There is a bed, probably a double, with a green cover on it.
It might only be a summer cottage 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team
I have a water front Cape Cod year round home the same size with an open floor plan plus a loft and full basement, with panoramic water views built in 2010 new for sale for$125,00. It has city water and sewer and a Murphy bed.
Thanks Mary! — Tiny House Talk Team
Please provide a link to your house for sale.
Although this is too small for me, I think it is really nicely done inside. The openess keeps it from seeming claustrophobic and the huge deck is a great feature.
