807 Sq. Ft. Stone Cottage

In the world of small homes, you’ll find abodes made of anything from mirrors to reclaimed wood to straw bales. This is an 807 sq. ft. stone cottage named “Casa Vi” by EV+A Lab.

Outside, you’ll notice a perfectly square facade with four symmetrical windows with a roofline that tilts backward. It sits among a forest of beautiful trees blowing smoke from its chimney.

On the inside, the house is paneled with light knotty pine wood and white walls with a wonderful open floor plan. The kitchen includes a cool retro refrigerator and a long table with wooden-block stools. A floating staircase leads upstairs to the bedroom and sitting area. The bathroom includes a unique concrete sink, and the main living space has an open fireplace for keeping warm.

    Wow! Just absoulety wow.
    Only thing for me would be adding some rails for safety reasons..

    • Avatar CathyAnn March 6, 2016, 1:48 pm

      I agree. Add railings and I’m sold! Love it!

  • Avatar RoSee March 6, 2016, 1:58 pm

    Indeed that is a “Wow!” I love the way it is set up and the loo and bidet is so cool. Although I would love more windows, sturdy stairwell with railings too. Good job! Love stone houses!

  • Avatar Eric March 6, 2016, 5:14 pm

    OMG… those stairs all look like those optical illusion pictures. Now, can someone tell me how to uncross my eyes… pleeeeeeez?

  • Avatar Kristina H Nadreau March 6, 2016, 8:49 pm

    fabulous in all respects. It is not my decor and I can not do stairs, especially no railings, and I still love this gorgeous building.

    • Avatar turner April 15, 2016, 1:01 pm

      I agree. Not my thing, but it is gorgeous.

      Also, it’s really great to see comments here that don’t fall into the trap of equating “doesn’t work for me/I don’t like it” with “This is bad.” Entitlement, anyone?

      Thank you.

    I love stone homes, but I tend to favor more traditional interiors.

  • Avatar Fredrick Krieger March 12, 2016, 10:32 pm

    Please add my personal “WOW!” to the ones previously posted! The whole house, the design details, the natural materials, the site…it’s like a breath of fresh, cool mountain air. I could live there in an instant. The only additions I would make would be some artwork by Richard Diebenkorn and Mark Rothko on the walls and some thick & cozy cushions on the benches near the fantastic and welcoming fireplace.

    It’s gorgeous, but the staircase is SO unsafe (one of a few things that tells me that it isn’t in the U.S.). If I ever build a place- whether a TOH or small house- a safe way to climb elevation is a must.

    • Avatar Derek up North March 6, 2018, 1:06 pm

      The staircase certainly isn’t to Code where I am.

  • Avatar keepyourpower March 8, 2017, 8:30 pm


    I used to live in Italy. I would say they are the most intelligent beings on this Earth! Their art, sculpture, architecture! Wow!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee March 9, 2017, 7:40 am

      Oh that’s so fun that you lived there 🙂

  • Avatar Raymond Heichelbech March 8, 2017, 9:10 pm

    Love every thing about this one except for the position of the bed.
    I would put the head of the bed against the opposite wall, so I could look at that beauitful mountain when I lay down.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee March 9, 2017, 7:38 am

      Ah yes 🙂 Good idea!

  • Avatar Claude March 9, 2017, 9:19 am

    Very nice, but those weird stairs not for me.

  • Avatar Shawna March 9, 2017, 2:37 pm

    Love the M C Escher stairs! Not for everyone, but looks very chic. I’d move the bed for the view too, but otherwise, awesome

  • Avatar Nancy March 25, 2017, 3:20 pm

    Would have like the WHOLE bathroom, But I do love the whole home. And, I agree on a railing too.

  • Avatar susan October 22, 2017, 10:15 am

    Agree! Wow! Absolutely Wow! Maybe turn the bed around so you’d have the mountain view while in bed. I might never get out of bed…

  • Avatar alice h October 22, 2017, 12:29 pm

    At first glance I was somewhat taken aback by the starkness but the symmetry of the front facade won me over. Not my style but truly a thing of beauty.

  • Avatar Patricia Chang October 23, 2017, 12:30 am

    Very Stark. The stairs are definitely a safety issue, a big safety issue! They are a lot of wasted storage space, too. Sorry, the stone is attractive, but overall, the house is not for me. To each his own…..

  • Avatar Karen Blackburn June 7, 2018, 5:05 am

    Why all the comments about the stairs not being up to code? A serious question. Not to my taste but I think the stairs are great and although I would need a handrail it would destroy the illusion of nothingness. I am assuming they are steel or a similar product because of the design but they just disappear into the air as though the upper flight isn’t there. Exactly what you need in a tiny house to increase the feeling of spaciousness. As long as there is no medical impairment these stairs are as safe as any, and as the majority of tiny homes have no rails on their internal stairs or ladders – even more dangerous to climb – then I am curious about all the fuss here. They look to be wide, not too steep, solid – unlike many circular staircases or ships versions – and with a tread easily wide enough to place your foot, as opposed to just your toes, on. Even better, they appear to house the bathroom beneath them which is a great use of space. I may not like the decor in general but the stairs are both beautiful and practical.

  • Avatar Kelly Libert June 9, 2018, 12:26 am

    Stunning. Few changes would I need. I did not see a shower, a flushable toilet, and I would shorten that long dining table to make room for a stacked washer/dryer. Other than that, I could easily and happily live here.
