    Love it, The outside of the little house is so beautiful. The inside layout is great and there’s stairs and hand rails and a bed room you don’t have to crawl into. Great for an old gal like me. If it were mine I would femm it up a bit and add some old fashion Cape Cod charm. I’m really thinking of downsizing for retirement and I’m keeping this design in mind.

  • betsy smith November 7, 2015, 5:01 pm

    I’d change the handles to something more rustic and historical. And the refrigerator is the biggest thing in the whole house….

  • Leslie November 7, 2015, 5:20 pm

    I love it. I am so interested in getting a tiny house. This one really caught my eye because I want to.move to the Cape! Where is this located? It seems to be in a foundation…..so I guess any ot of land was workable to set it. I wonder if there are other tiny homes on the Cape. And are their other builders specializing in them…..hmmm, would love to have more details!!

    • Payton November 13, 2015, 6:58 pm

      Leslie hi, I am also looking for the same thing as you are. I have been working on it for 12 yrs. now, but I want to get it done. I also want the house on a foundation not a cement slab. so if you get any info, on anything let me know and I will do the same. It would be nice to find land and the builder and who knows maybe they would give a break in price, if 2 people were to build.

  • Celeste November 7, 2015, 5:34 pm

    I like several things about the house. The exterior, the living room, and most of the kitchen. Some of the kitchen is disproportionate, a tiny sink with a full dishwasher and stove.

    The bathroom looks like a pop-out, which if you are going to add something like that, make it a little bigger with a mirror. Maybe put the window somewhere else so there can be a mirror.

    The dining area is an odd shape. Is that to fit the lot size or something? Not having a picture of the back side makes it hard to tell. I like that there actually is space to put a table, so that is a bonus in my opinion.

    Love the stairs. I wonder why they didn’t just move the bedroom over against the wall and left that space. Just seems wasted. You could fill in the space with storage.

    It is nice to look at all these different ideas so that I can make choices when we build our little place. Thanks for sharing!

  • Jane November 7, 2015, 6:07 pm

    Lovely-lovely-lovely…I’m jealous!

  • Deborah November 7, 2015, 6:13 pm

    Adorable!!!!!!!!!!

    • Lori sorry didn't mean to report June 26, 2016, 10:13 am

      Didn’t mean to report, meant comment agree with deb and Jane, what a fantastic abode, and location perfect! Love Provincetown, big money for sure

  • Catherine November 7, 2015, 6:41 pm

    Like the look and the styling of the exterior, most of the furnishings and love all the natural light. But, man, that is one weird styling option for the ground floor is the extra room is or can be made all-weather.

    I like the placement of bathroom because the only other option would be to shove that fridge right up against the stove and that wouldn’t make sense from a functional stand point and the fridge would just block out natural light from the side windows over the prep area. I want a full sized apartment fridge/freezer, not a dorm fridge. Great choice of placement there and I wish more smaller home designers would incorporate spaces for fridges other than under-cabinets. Kudos for that!

    Like kristina n., I’m not a fan of that island. It’s not a disaster but having stools at the opposite ends seems weird and the placement of the island cuts off the bathroom and makes you have to scoot around it for the stairs. I’d prefer a smaller island on wheels that could roll around to stay more out of the way when not needed.

    Rest of the kitchen – it’s OK. It’s a one-bedroom place, how many dishes and large pots/pans are you going to use? I’d be fine with the sink the way it is. Or put in a bigger sink. This wouldn’t discourage me from buying this house.

    Bathroom is great. I don’t have the patience to clean glass doors and am happy enough with nice shower curtains and this room would have enough room to do this. It’s got a nice layout and good storage spaces and that window placement would be great for light and ventilation.

    Yeah. The room off the kitchen/living area… I don’t get the point of this styling at all. The table seems too big and where are the dining chairs (if that’s the purpose)? That entire room is a head scratcher for me.

    However, *if* the idea was that the room was all-weather, I’d ditch the kitchen island for a smaller roll-around one, use the current living room as sort of a dining/work area and put the actual living room in the what-ever-that-is room.

    This seems like a terrific small house that is stylish and practical and the only drawback is the stylish who places the furniture, I reckon. I just don’t understand why you would have so much useful space and style it to be inefficient. Especially when the rest of the house is so great.

  • Mary Corbett November 7, 2015, 6:59 pm

    I lOVE this home! Great use of space and it looks bigger than it is. The only thing I would change is add a closet. Love the bedroom with a real ceiling and love the stairs with a rail. Wonder how much it costs?

    • Elaine November 7, 2015, 7:04 pm

      I agree about the closet. I wonder if there is room in the bedroom for a wardrobe… Other than that it is perfect!

    • Payton November 7, 2015, 8:29 pm

      I love the stairs also. I would be doing a house that is small, but not moveable. I do wish people would give a price on them, but then again, I guess I know why. It took me some time to figure it out.

  • Elaine November 7, 2015, 7:01 pm

    Love it!!! That sun room thing doesn’t really seem well utilized but one could do whatever they want with it! I want to live there!

  • vee November 7, 2015, 8:10 pm

    Nice! Note: Handrails leading to sleeping loft!!!
    Like the simple storage solution in the small bathroom.
    Very stylish yet snug! a winner ( but I would worry about
    storage space or lack thereof)???

  • Micki November 7, 2015, 8:21 pm

    I love this house!! Could use this sunroom for master for this old lady. Lol My grandbabies would love the loft. So bright and shiny. I can so see myself living here.

  • Valerie November 7, 2015, 8:34 pm

    I can live with this home. Nice.

  • Barbara November 7, 2015, 9:14 pm

    I adore it! What’s the block and tackle for? Hanging a deer? ☺ I would have a closet and the full bath upstairs and a half bath down, though.

  • Mike November 7, 2015, 9:52 pm

    Now this is a Tiny Home!! Unlike many examples we see of 8′ wide homes on wheels that don’t even have a closet, this home could actually be quite livable! I love all the little details and think they really thought alot about it. Great Job!!

  • Sandra Cutler November 7, 2015, 11:29 pm

    Who in Washington builds Tiny Houses or knows if some are for sale?

    • Payton November 13, 2015, 7:16 pm

      Sandra Cutler, hi, I am not sure, but I do know that the first thing to do is get the land and the builder will follow. so this is where we need to start, as I am ready to start. I am disabled, and looking for someone to just want to do this also. who knows, may be there is enough people out there that wants to do this also.

  • KaS November 8, 2015, 6:49 am

    This would be nice for a weekend type place, but I could not live in something that small all the time.

    • Marcy November 8, 2015, 8:31 am

      Oh, my, KaS. You must be new to this site because in Tiny House terms, this is practically a mansion. 350 sq. feet isn’t a lot, but it’s 100-150 more than we often see here. Maybe it’s that it is on a foundation and not on wheels that makes it seem smaller. But I know what you mean – I’ve started thinking that I might be more a ‘very small house’ person more than a tiny house person.

  • Cheryl November 8, 2015, 7:34 am

    I love it! Inside and out. I thought maybe the space around the toilet could have been a bit bigger but certainly not a big deal. I love seeing a loft you can actually stand up in.

  • Angela November 8, 2015, 10:25 am

    Looooove this! It’s smaller than we can go, but so many elements we want to use, including a corner drawer staircase like that! We are leaning toward a cape cod style barn house, and thus isn’t a barn house, but lots of style we like! Lovely!

  • Trish November 8, 2015, 12:56 pm

    This is a very informative website about tiny house living. It’s not a site to complain about everything you see and read. Play nice people.

    • Alex November 8, 2015, 1:34 pm

      Thanks, Trish! From now on any comments where anyone is complaining or being negative or even too critical of someone’s home (ie- not saying/adding anything of value or that contributes to the general well-being of the community) will simply be deleted. Thanks!

  • gail poulton November 8, 2015, 8:19 pm

    Love this one, I think I would push the size to 500 sq ft as that is the absolute smallest I would even consider. That would allow for a closet and a washer and dryer!!

  • Mike November 9, 2015, 8:55 am

    I’d buy this. I’d build one. It’s rare to see a design that pleases so many people to such a degree. More like this!

  • Starling November 9, 2015, 2:56 pm

    I like everything except the bathroom. It’s a mess. It looks like you have to practically sit on the toilet to use the sink. Bad design. But everything else is stellar. So how much does this beauty cost?

  • Tori November 10, 2015, 1:48 pm

    What was the cost of this tiny home?

  • Dan Eldredge November 10, 2015, 9:53 pm

    Washer and dryer? Simply build it over an equally tiny basement with a bulkhead entry…. A fine laundry area!

  • sammie warwick November 15, 2015, 8:54 pm

    Okay, I have looked at thousands of tiny homes now and this is the absolute best one ever! I love everything about it. My husband and I were concerned about the bedroom upstairs, but a half bath would solve that. The kitchen is the best equipped I have seen. I want a huge fridge like that! I love that the oven is in the cabinet and isn’t taking up wall space. I love the island separating the kitchen from the living room. The bedroom is amazing. I’m not sure what the extra room off the living room is, but I would put a washer and dryer in there. And possibly make it a craft room. This room has the most potential of any I have seen so far. Did I say how much I love it? Thanks so much for sharing this, Alex.

  • Lola February 2, 2016, 3:25 pm

    I was really confused, and this answered all my qunstioes.

  • Sue April 25, 2016, 7:45 pm

    Right now I am living in Fl in manufactured home in 55 & over park. I want to move back to CT. and build a tiny home. Is there a parks right now in or around Wallingford, CT? Also any builders building tiny homes in CT.
    By the way does anyone want to buy my home here in FL 1568sqft, 7 rooms and completely furnished. Taking all offers.
    Email me if interested so I can start on my tiny house.
    Thanks

  • Christopher Budd June 13, 2016, 7:43 pm

    Yes, this house had a lot more issues before renovation. And its not perfect to live in….some of you have picked up on this.

    Not having a half bath upstairs IS a problem..I hate having to go downstairs. I ended up carpeting the stair to provide a more slip resistant surface. But the loft is only 88 SF! and we left the gap so that we have a 17′ high peak from living room floor to loft ceiling which makes the space seem bigger.

    We are not allowed to increase the footprint of the house. The bathroom is only 3’5″ wide by 6’8″. It took some ingenuity to get anything to work (and yes I hate cleaning the glass!). I made the low medicine cabinet in order to keep the window and added the mirror. The sink is turned in order fit a faucet and spout in as it wouldn’t fit under the horizontal medicine cabinet. This also left a space to hank a hand towel. The pocket door to the bathroom helps.

    There is a washer and dryer, all under the kitchen counter along with a single dishwasher drawer, 24″ oven, and sink. The island holds a lot of storage with two stools designed to tuck under the corners.

    Since these photos, we had to build in a closet because the wooden wardrobe was not enough. We got an extra 36″ of hanging space. And the 3 season porch has been glazed and had a suspended ethanol fireplace added.

    And my mom freaked out at the hanging sculpture in the living room too!

    • Dawn July 3, 2016, 8:37 pm

      The only thing that changes I would build over the bathroom below and put a bathroom above off the loft. I would also get one of those showers that only has a half glass door that way you could put the toilet at one end in the safe in the middle and the shower at the absolute other end. As he said it needs a few more closets but otherwise it’s gorgeous.

  • Gabriella June 25, 2016, 12:52 pm

    Really Nice. I Like the landscape, broken lines and unpredictable the origina staircase, the colors, the light that comes in a discreet way.

  • Scott June 25, 2016, 1:26 pm

    Very nice!
    Great design and workmanship.
    Seems like a lot of space on a small footprint.

  • Tisha E. June 25, 2016, 1:27 pm

    This is an adorable small home. I love the fact it is a fixed location and not on wheels. Also love the fact the loft is one where a person of average height could stand comfortably. I enjoyed the artsy touches – such as the block and tackle hangings and the “body” that hangs from the beams. Yes, granted to have a closet or storage space in the bedroom would be beneficial the whole means for small homes is to not harbor too many possessions. So for me that issue is 50/50. I would manage to live around it.
    All in all I really do love the layout and use of space and items within this home! Great job!

  • Robert June 25, 2016, 1:31 pm

    I would have to presume that, if put on the market, this house would list for around $350,000?? Just guessing…

    • Christopher June 26, 2016, 7:51 pm

      It sold for $306,000 four years ago before renovation

  • Kathy June 25, 2016, 9:14 pm

    One of the best tiny homes I’ve seen. Love the lamp hanging in the stairwell. Just beautiful!

  • Shelley July 1, 2016, 6:29 pm

    It’s beautiful. I wish someone could make my tiny house more beautiful and user friendly.

    • Naomi July 3, 2016, 1:04 pm

      I could easily retire to this small home. It has everything I need to allow me to live comfortably and it is beautiful inside and out.
