750 Sq. Ft. Small Cottage in Columbus, Ohio

I’m excited to show you this 750 sq. ft. one bedroom one bathroom small cottage in Columbus, Ohio that was built in 1920.

It was listed for sale but has recently been taken off the market. I still wanted to share it with you for inspirational purposes and I think you’ll be glad I did.

The cottage is nicknamed Pure Honey. It definitely has curb appeal and I can imagine it would be dreamy to get to live in it. Wait until you see inside! Please enjoy and re-share below.

    So cute! I knew it had to be in or near German Village.

    I suppose… I’m not down with the ladder or the floating loft (vertigo). But it’s been nicely done out even if I don’t agree with all of the appointments.

      i am new to the “dream” of a tiny home and need to know what a floating loft is? I want a tiny home so badly, but no $$$ to back me up, but the dream is still there and KNOW I will eventually have one..

    Just shows what you can do with an old shotgun and a little imagination.

    I do like this one also. The ladder with a kink in it, is a bit of a worry. Its probably perfectly safe so it is just a feeling. The house looks more spacious than the outside suggests but I like the overall appearance. Thankyou for sharing and cheers from Australia

    I understand the “tiny” however at 54 I have no desire to crawl up a ladder to a loft…or even go up steps. Can’t you design a bit bigger home with a master bedroom downstairs and a “guest” loft? Additionally, I’d like to know if there are any architects that would help me design a new floor plan for an existing cottage that has become my own.

      It looks like there is a bedroom downstairs (no ladder required) and a guest loft above. Or it doesn’t have to be a guest loft, it can be whatever you want it to be. Library?

      There was a Tiny House shown on Tiny House Nation that was designed on a graduated step style. The creativity was amazing. There were no ladders, but just a couple steps to each room.
      If you do a search on FYI TV, the web should bring up their site. Do another search for Tiny House Nation. The episode should be among the listings. Good luck!

      I’m with you on the ladder. I would use lofts for storing everything I don’t need to get my hands on every day. I had the flu this last winter and can’t imagine navigating a ladder. I have often thought that attic stairs that pull down and then rise out of the way would be a good solution.

        Wow Steve!! The pull down attic stairs for loft access is an exceptional idea!! It would seem a more sturdy & stable solution…great suggestion!

    Love this little house. Especially since it is not in the wild forest but in the city. The only change I’d have to make is stairs to the loft area, no ladders.

    I am thinking that I would love one of the tiny homes for my own I just love them.

    750 sf is not tiny. The concept of tiny house is multi-purpose everything. Not only is this not multi-purpose anything, there is too much wasted space. Inside design is cute and quaint, just not tiny. I like the quilt.

      Hi Sharee!
      The title of this post states: “750 Sq. Ft. SMALL Cottage in Columbus, Ohio” not “750 Sq. Ft. TINY Cottage in Columbus, Ohio”. I think some people equate every house on this blog with tiny, however the posts showcase various types and sizes of homes under 1,100 square feet. Most certainly, 750 sq.ft. would not be looked at as a tiny house in the TH/SH (Tiny House/Small House) movement but most certainly, 750 sq.ft would definitely be considered small…even in the TH/SH community. Ijs… ;^)

    The reason for floor plans is because photographs can be deceiving about how big or small a space really is. Not that they mean to be, but that’s just the way photographs can be at times. I also wish there were floor plans attached.

    I’d SO live there. And it’s only 60 Mikes south of where I live. It’s purposed so well utilizing the space as well as updated enough to feel and utilize modern conveniences. My fave by far!

    Very cute but I wouldn’t pay more than $100K for that place. Why are tiny and small homes getting so pricey? At this rate, I’ll never be able to afford one, so discouraging.

        You still have a kitchen sink, faucet, dw, refrigerator, range (if using small versions they often cost more because not as many are made), your windows don’t reduce proportionately, doors either. You don’t get the efficiency of scale like you have with larger homes. Trades all have to make the basic trip whether for $100 worth of work or $1000 worth of work. Same thing when comparing 1500sf to 2500sf.

          Very true, Audrey.

    For those not fond of ladders, a spiral staircase is an attractive, safe, and space-saving option. I’m suprised to see few tiny homes with a second level not utilize the spiral. You can easily build or buy a kit from a company like Precision Pine, Inc. in Seymour, TN. Also, I’m wondering why this owner did not utilize the flue for a wood stove. Wood heating is also a good suplement or backup to electricity when the weather is extremely cold.

    I completely love this small home. I have the acreage and would rather build one level. The loft bed rooms would not do.
    Can you give me a price on this home to build?

  • Joey

    Very nice and well done. Question, so I see where its this 750 sq feet, however adding this loft, does that not add to the sq footage or am I dreaming? Great ideas, makes it appear bigger.

    This has been listed for sale again at $260K and it is way overpriced. Last time it was sold was on Jan. 2010 for $95K. Updating the house from what the pictures show does not merit an increase of $165K even if it has been featured on various online sites!

      You are paying the price to live in Victorian Village, a most desirable neighborhood in Columbus. I agree wayyyyy over priced for even that neighborhood for what it is…I’m sure there’ll need to be a significant drop in price before it sells. I’d be amazed it’d appraise for that much.

  • Lisa

    I agree with you John on the spiral staircase, however I don’t think they’re easy to build at all! What about the possibility of a stair lift for elderly individuals where using a ladder might not be so safe? or using a winch where the whole loft area could move up and down with the touch of a button? It might not be economical, (more like a custom feature maybe?) just an idea.

    Why do the pics of the kitchen look like paintings, instead of photos?

    • Natalie C. McKee

      I think it’s the lighting. It’s very saturated.

    I like this one. My house is 843 sf, but this 750 sf house is laid out better than mine. I like the downstairs bedroom (the grandkids can have the loft) and the overall spacious feel. Nicely done!

    • Natalie C. McKee
      March 29, 2017, 8:36 am

      Isn’t it amazing how layout changes everything? It can really widen a space.

    I have a lot on Ohio river that would make a perfect place to put a tiny house on. I want to sell it but if not I would put a little house on it. Do you know of where I could get info on a tiny house builder around Gallipolis Ohio?
