    Cute house but the price is way too expensive. That’s the problem with some of these “tiny” houses, they’re just as expensive as a larger house.

      This isn’t a “tiny” house. It is a smaller home.

    • tiffany
      May 17, 2015, 6:27 pm

      marina, yes. it is just way too high, the concept is lovely. the entire place is great. but i can buy 3 or 4 of those in one home here for that price. its just a ridiculous price point.

    $189,000????? For that kind of money I could build several tiny houses and rent them out for vacation cottages to tourists here in SC.
    I thought the whole concept of the tiny house was to live simply, to save money and to downsize your lives so that you enjoy actually living outside your wallet/bank.

    If I lived in Ohio, I’d put a bid on this house immediately!

    This looks like the average home in the neighborhood where I live: small houses, giant lots. Now it’s scrape-off territory for developers. I get at least a letter a week from prospective buyers who want to put up cheaply built 2000sf duplexes that go from edge-to-edge on the lot.

    • Charmaine

      Exactly my thoughts. With the apartments blocks surrounding it, it’s ripe for picking – therefor the high price.

    Adorable. I wish pictures weren’t always so horribly stretched so you could get a real feel for what 766 sq ft really look like

  • Becky
    May 9, 2015, 3:56 pm

    No the price is too high. My home is 2400 sq ft, 4/2.5, attached 2-car garage, granite, and it cost $212k. For $189 I would expect much more. It looks like an old house, closed floor plan – the kitchen is totally cut off from rest of house. I didn’t see a lot size but one side has the apt building looking at you. The inside has nice finishes but outside needs work and curb appeal.

      I agree. The idea of saving space seems to have been lost when they put in a refrigerator big enough for ten people, also.

      You must be a youngster. In the olden days, the kitchen was always “cut off” from the rest of the house. Nobody wanted to sit at a dinner table trying to eat with a view of dirty dishes and pots and general meal-making mess. The presentation of the meal was an event. The process was the business of the cook.

      The trend for a kitchen instantly viewable from the front door showed up in the 80s, and I’ve never understood it. Supposedly, it was so moms could watch toddlers while cooking, not to mention watch the football game on TV, while conversing with guests waiting on dinner. Or maybe show off the new island and copper cookware.

      A kitchen used to be a sacred place (not public domain) near the back of the house, with a treasured kitchen table where kids made Christmas cookies and grandmas secretly let a kid lick the cake batter from a bowl while parents watched Bonanza with Grandpa. Tne dirty dishes could wait until after dinner, not taunt poor Grandma from the counters while she tried to eat. 🙂

      I love this little house, it reminds me of sweeter days.

        To Sally and Sgmaps,

        I’m not a youngster. I just turned 60. I’m from Ohio and go there at least once a year visiting relatives around the state. My grandparents had houses with the closed off kitchen and my family did too until we moved when I was in 2nd grade – 1963-ish. My mother preferred an open concept as she did not like being cut off from her guests while working in the kitchen. She would be 91 if she were alive today. I also prefer open concept. It works for my family and it brings a higher dollar amount when you sell it. I guess its the different preferences that make the world go round. For all those saying a house like this would cost half a million or more – it would definitely not in OH and that is where the house is located. We are not talking about the Northeast or CA or any other high-priced area. Its not a tiny house but its small and I like seeing it because I will also being going small.

      Just wondering where you live. As Im sure you know the real estate prices vary widely from city to city & state to state, province to province. Location, Location, location!!! Where I live you would be super lucky to get an older condo with 400 sf max for that price. This has a basement, large lot, garage etc. And as another commenter mentioned, this open concept, which I dislike, started in the 80’s. I never had any trouble keeping an eye on my children with a standard non open plan built in 1972. The kitchen is usually next to the living room or family room which is most likely where your guests would be congregating & I definitely don’t want anybody in the kitchen when I am cooking. Just my feelings. The only place where an open concept can be extremely beneficial is in extremely small narrow houses or townhouses with tiny rooms because it opens it up making the space feel bigger.

    this house is perfection.everything perfect.laundry room workbench combined is awesome idea. only thing I dont like is stove under window.where does the grease go?

    • Diane
      May 10, 2015, 4:07 am

      Didn’t mean to use That comment button. I wanted to agree here that the kitchen was a very special family gathering place. It was wonderful, comforting and the most “secure feeling” room in any house back then. And a workbench in the laundry room? AWESOME IDEA.

  • Becky
    May 9, 2015, 4:01 pm

    I mistook the back porch for the front of house! Then I saw a pic of the front so I take back the curb appeal comment.

    I love this house. I could live here quite happily with all of my hobbies. It’s beautifully staged so we get a better idea of what it looks like with furniture in there.

    As for the apartment house next door, I’d plant a hedge/row of trees with large shrubs or some combination along the fence that would grow relatively fast for privacy. I love to garden anyway, so there would be a lot more planting going on.

    Regarding price: That house would go for that much or a little more here in Missoula, Montana. However, if it were in the Redwood City, California, area, just south of San Francisco on the peninsula where I grew up…. well, my folk’s house, about the size of this one with an attached two-car garage and no basement, just 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, sold for around $900,000 about 5 – 6 years ago. My folks bought it new in 1952 for $12,250. My mother sold it in 1989 for $389,000. It’s sold twice that I know of since then, and each time the price has gone up substantially. Location makes a huge difference.

    BTW, the area where I grew up used to have orchards and houses with large lots. All of the orchards and large lots are gone. For instance, behind my folk’s old house, there was an orchard. Now there are huge, two-story houses back there in a cul-de-sac with hardly any clearance between them and no yards worth noting. Yuk!

    • Sally
      May 9, 2015, 7:10 pm

      The whole place is immaculate. Wouldn’t that basement make a great guest bedroom or mother-in-law suite? And a garage and huge lot??. That price would be reasonable for a north Florida neighborhood you would care to live in. The apartment building is definitely a big Negative (how did they get away with that in what appears to be a historic neighborhood? Talk about a blight!), but as you said, trees could take care of the “view.”
      You reminded me of when I also lived in a rural area with a 300-acre pear orchard across the road. Before the end of 1974, about the time they were bulldozing most of the historical buildings downtown in favor of “urban renewal,” the pear orchard was gone. I have no idea how many houses they crammed in there, six feet apart, no yards, no trees, and only two ways out of that maze to get to an actual road. A nightmare for people trying to go to work, and quite an ugly legacy urban planners made for future generations.
      At least they are almost old enough to qualify as “tear-downs.” Jeez am I really that old??

    Becky the price may seem high, but the size of home you have would cost $750,000. If not higher in the area this home is located. So this is actually a pretty great price for the home in this great of condition.

  • Jennifer
    May 9, 2015, 6:09 pm

    This is a “tiny” house? This looks like the first home we rented when we moved to this area. Actually I think it might be a bit bigger with the basement. It is a good sized home.

    • John
      May 11, 2015, 5:39 pm

      Alex tries to include any smaller homes that help people visualize what downsizing would look like. Some people are would love to minimize their space footprint and are fascinated by the simplicity of tiny designs, but are scared of going too small. These types of homes open up the playing field of possibilities.

    I am in Arizona. For 189K you can get a 4 BR/2.5bath with 3 car garage and a pool. Way over priced for what you get. Especially in Ohio.

  • Lynne
    May 9, 2015, 7:01 pm

    This does not qualify as a Tiny House. I guess I don’t understand why this is being highlighted??

      We are fortunate on this blog that we are not told what to like, or given proclamations by our host about what square footage or style is acceptable.

      We are shown Vardos, yurts, micro-homes, tiny houses on wheels, tiny houses not on wheels, small homes, kit and prefab houses, restored campers, refurbed RVs, container homes, converted garden sheds and homes that make the most of an otherwise unusable location.

      We all have different needs, based on age, health, children, jobs, economics and personal creed. The homes have not ventured into McMansion territory, and I am asking that we don’t descend into setting rules for content. We can all learn from others’ housing experience.

    WAY too expensive!! This is in a trendy area, though–“German Village.” On the outskirts of downtown. The problem with these niche trendy areas, though, is that the difference between one or two streets turns “trendy” into “crime ridden.” It’s a lovely area–brick streets and all–but it’s still WAY too expensive for the amount of space you get.

  • Rebecca B. A. R.

    This price is expensive for the Columbus area, with that little of living space. It is close to downtown Columbus and it is in really good condition, but still, the price is high. Looking it up on realtor.com, the last time it sold was in August of 2011 for $135,000.

    This property is much more reasonable in Washington Court House, OH, which is around 45 minutes away from Columbus. http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/604-E-Paint-St_Washington-Court-House_OH_43160_M43095-54144?row=11

  • Mary McGuirk

    this is a beautifully remodelled home. It seems that the price is a lot for a 2br2ba home until you realize it is on a double sized lot, with a detached garage and fully finished basement with workbench and almost a master suite. My only concern was the KITCHEN had what looked like a redundant location for a washer dryer when it needed more counter space next to the fridge…perhaps a breakfast bar with a stool or two?

  • Sheryl

    Really high price… but cute.

  • alice h
    May 10, 2015, 4:19 pm

    I suspect this house has been spiffed up cosmetically for the express purpose of charging a higher price. It also looks staged. The workshop is great, but doesn’t look like anybody has ever done anything in it. That said, if you found anything like this where I live it would probably be well over $700,000 or $800,000 and be torn down to build an ugly giant house that came as close to the lot boundaries as it could.

  • Deb
    May 11, 2015, 9:10 am

    The little house is absolutely adoreable. It is what it is. A little house and not a Tiny House. That house in Northeast would probably be listed for about the same price. The taxes on it would be ridiculous on it, atleast in CT. It is on a double lot so the size is nice. The inside is very tastefully done. Love it.

  • May 11, 2015, 2:58 pm

    Some markets don’t count basements as “living” square footage, so it’s just bonus space. This house, for all practical purposes is a 1532 sq. ft. house (766 x 2). The finishes are extremely lovely. This space would be totally livable IF the basement has legal bedroom/sleeping quarters (Egress). I can see it being worth the $189k if it is right downtown in a great area, close to shops/restaurants. Unfortunately, I don’t really want to live in Ohio, nothing against the state, but I’m headed west.
    Thanks for sharing it, though, very pretty!

  • Adria Gunter
    May 15, 2015, 7:51 pm

    I think someone actually put a bid on it already. It seems like houses on the same street are actually selling for upwards of $229K. I never would have imagined Ohio would have prices like this. It’s pretty high. The listing states there’s an attic and it’s on a double lot. 5,662 sq feet is a pretty big lot. They aren’t making much on it though it last sold in 2011 for $135K.

  • tiffany
    May 17, 2015, 6:22 pm

    this home is very well done, but more than $90k is ridiculous. just being nicely remodeled doesnt make 766sqft. a great deal. This is Columbus, if it were NYC or a market like that it could command a higher price. But this is still 766 sqft. anyway u slice it. In Texas u can easily buy a 2000-2800 sqft. home for 189,000 and closer to new. so It truly needs to come down to a realistic price.

  • May 9, 2016, 3:57 pm

    In Toronto, Canada, I suspect this would easily go for $700 to $800K so location really is key here – and a double lot like that would make it worth even more. In Owen Sound, where I’m considering moving after selling my 2 bedroom row house in Toronto, I could easily buy a 3-4 bedroom house for $225K or less and still have all the amenities. Like others have said here, it depends on the location. I like this house – as a photographer/fine art printer who lives with a dog and a 6 foot wide printer, this is all I would need to live well.

    P.S. There’s no dining room table nor a place for one. You could put in a tiny drop-leaf by the fridge, maybe.
