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.
I agree with you. Although I wont be able to afford something like that at all. My downsize will have to so very small.
I’d change the handles to something more rustic and historical. And the refrigerator is the biggest thing in the whole house….
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!!
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.
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!
Picky, picky. I think this little house is great, and i”d take it just like it is!
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
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.
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?
I agree about the closet. I wonder if there is room in the bedroom for a wardrobe… Other than that it is perfect!
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.
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!
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)???
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.
I can live with this home. Nice.
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.
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!!
Who in Washington builds Tiny Houses or knows if some are for sale?
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.
This would be nice for a weekend type place, but I could not live in something that small all the time.
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.
No not new and I am all for downsizing, but to a point. For me, one bathroom, no guestroom and no dining room would be deal breakers.
Hey Kas, check out some of the homes in these categories to find more homes that meet your criteria 🙂

And you can also maybe consider Park Models:
Hope this helps! Take care,
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!!
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!
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?
What was the cost of this tiny home?
Washer and dryer? Simply build it over an equally tiny basement with a bulkhead entry…. A fine laundry area!
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.
I was really confused, and this answered all my qunstioes.
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.
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!
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.
Really Nice. I Like the landscape, broken lines and unpredictable the origina staircase, the colors, the light that comes in a discreet way.
Great design and workmanship.
Seems like a lot of space on a small footprint.
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!
I would have to presume that, if put on the market, this house would list for around $350,000?? Just guessing…
It sold for $306,000 four years ago before renovation
One of the best tiny homes I’ve seen. Love the lamp hanging in the stairwell. Just beautiful!
It’s beautiful. I wish someone could make my tiny house more beautiful and user friendly.
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.
I love, love, love this little house. We could see ourselves easily living in such a pretty home. We live in Colorado but my husband is from back east and it reminds him of where he’s from.
I love it too! — Tiny House Talk Team
Absolutely love this tiny house. How much do these sell for?
Well it’s a cottage on land that was remodeled, so they don’t make them like a tiny house you could just buy. It’s in Provincetown on Cape Cod, so I imagine quite a lot: http://www.zillow.com/provincetown-ma/
I have seen many things in my life, but when thir eyes are trained to see the art that you realize when it is discreetly visible ( as in this case) through a few items of furniture (vaguely or deliberately Vintage ), present in every space, the asymmetry of architectural forms complete a good job for an enjoyable Life
Very cute small house….love that it has stairs to the bedroom. They could utilize that under-stair space better…..hang pots and pans and utensils there.
Good idea! — Tiny House Talk Team
Actually the space under the stairs is quite well utilized. The kitchen counter and lower cabinets run completely under the stair to allow for a dryer and microwave. The primary heating unit for the house also resides there. Round vents in the stairs allow heat to circulate. A wall of shelves holds tools, paint, paper towels, shopping bags, etc.
Before designing the space we developed a very long spreadsheet of ever item that needed to fit into the cottage and coded it against the eventual design by drawer, shelf, cabinet etc. the goal was to avoid cluttering the visual field (such as hanging pots) so the space would not seem claustrophobic.
The design concept was to use sharp contrast between a bright white, a dark neutral, and a single color to simplify the space and make it graphic. As an example, all the dishes in the open cabinet are white to avoid the visual clutter of “mis and match”. We chose to break that rule with artwork and a few decorative objects.
Key to the feeling of spaciousness was ceiling height. If you stand in the center of the cottage the ceiling is 17 feet because of the quirky architecture.
We reassessed the cottage after a year and decided to add a closet, redesign the porch to be more functional (fireplace) and add a split system.
Great looking, but another tiny house that I’m sure has a hefty price tag do to cost of land…!
I’m afraid you are right! P-town is one of the priciest places on Cape! — Tiny House Talk Team
I absolutely love this house. There are one or two things I would change but that is just due to my own personal taste. would Christopher or anyone that would know be able to link or email me the plans for this house.I wish to have the same shell/floor plan for my own tiny project im about to take on! 🙂 and this would be a great template
I really like this little house, and am glad to finally have seen the interior and the plans. I think I’d make only two changes; instead of a dishwasher, I’d have a washer/dryer combo there–there’s only me, and if I can’t wash the few dishes I use daily, then I’m truly lazy and worthless! I’d also eliminate that odd porch/projection off the side. I’m not an outdoor person at all, and that would be pretty much useless to me. I’m moving to Missouri in the fall, but again, wouldn’t be living outside. If anything, I’d have just a simple, small rectangular screened porch, just large enough for maybe three or four adults to sit and converse, but nothing more than the most basic design, which would work well with this delightful little cottage.
Joyce: What am I missing? Why would you replace the dishwasher with a hybrid washer/dryer? The cottage already has a washer and a dryer.
Maybe that information wasn’t listed in tinyhousetalk. Remodeler Magazine published this house and indicated that there was a washer and a dryer under the counter.
Thanks for sharing your home.
Personally, I would have put the fridge where the stove is now, hooked the fridge doors to open into the kitchen…put the stove where the fridge is now.
As a cook that would work for me much better. Also build next to stove an additional counter adding more surface space.
But, other than that, a very nice space to hang out in.
It’s a nice feeling to cook and have near the dining table, talking with you…near all the other things: sofas, libraries, and in the solarium space the work table with colored earths, pencils and brush….You have the feeling of union and not of dispersion, as in a custom wrap where everything is consider and not abandoned in distant solitude or remote corner of the house too far from oneself. Loving yourself is to love the indispensable you have chosen as a useful element in your life, phat in a simple, bright intimate, while the look space from the big whindows in anature that breathes with you.
Although this is not the Park Model RV format I design in, With just two mods it hits all my buttons…a 24″ IKEA Farm Sink and make that sunroom a Master suite with a master bath on the deck area adjoining the bath. Pretty nice work and style for the Cape is excellent. It would work well on any coastline in many countries. I am assuming the Sunroom is not included in the sq.ft. total so the addition of that 120 Sq.ft. would be only 470 Sq.ft. A perfect size for seniors with a great Mother-in-law appeal as well as a terrific Downsize option for that alleyway.
About the loft, as a Senior I can say having full headroom is a MAJOR plus as WE will wind up doing any cleanup and organizing. Making beds while crouched over does not work for us.
A couple of flower boxes an some Aqua Blue paint this is good to go out on the Keys in FloriDUH…While they are still above sea level. You know..This would work well on floats in Lake Union with that Seattle Skyline REALLY Well…
Did not see a price but being in cape cod prices are very high like the hamptons in long island .. i like this house very beautiful and
Comfortable for year round use.
It should read ON Cape Cod not IN Cape Cod. That’s what us year rounders say! 🙂
Will edit, thank you!
We’ve seen this before.
Beautiful! Love it yhe way it is, really live the stairs, a ladder wouldnt work for me.
I love it. It is just the right size. You could live here and not feel as if you were deprived of space. The layout and design are wonderful.
What a wonderful little cottage! Other than some changes in the decor to suit personal preferences, the only thing I can see that would have to be changed is a larger kitchen sink. Can’t beat an ample sink! Overall it’s great!
I wish you would have included a photo of the room off of the kitchen and living room, it would have completed the whole design. Thank you
How much did this cost we are doing a project in class and I want to use this idea but I don’t know how much this costs and I need the cost so I know. My budget is 25,000. Please answer me fast.
