They Built a Small Cottage In Their Backyard And Rented Out Their Big House… It’s an ADU Cottage in Seattle!
Yup! Only 400-square-feet of space. So they use a murphy bed to make the space more useful during the day.
When bedtime arrives, it’s easy to turn the room into a bedroom😴
Here, have a look at the kitchen…
They were creative and used lots of recycled items to finish their house (like the utensils you see being used as handles for the cabinet doors)… They even used a cheese grater as a light fixture! You can see it in the video tour below😀
Beautiful, not too tiny, and very simple…
