Adam and Karen 2

Even though Adam and Karen don’t include themselves to be part of the tiny house “movement”, their 280 square foot cabin certainly qualifies it be featured here.

Their goal in building the home was finding the right balance between function, character and cost. Karen and Adam found the property on the way back from a friend’s wedding.

After hiking up the driveway (their car couldn’t make it), and discovering the breathtaking scenery and waterfalls, they made an offer on it 5 days later.

Pet Friendly Seaglass Cottage 02

What a quaint getaway cottage!  Newly renovated and offered through VRBO, this property is perfect for getting away from the hubbub of the city.  Bright and airy, with generous views and access to Flax Pond, where you’ll enjoy kayaking, swimming or fishing in its clear fresh waters.

With 2 bedrooms (each furnished with a queen size bed) and 1 1/2 baths, you can comfortably vacation with your small family or a couple of friends.  Enjoy coffee or cocktails on the sun porch, peacefully overlooking Flax Pond.  The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances and all necessary cooking utensils.  There is even a charcoal grill so that you can cook and eat at the cottage, if you wish.  The cottage also contains a washer and dryer for your convenience.

Located in a quiet and peaceful waterside neighborhood, and surrounded by lots of trees and greenery, you will have many “important” choices to make each day:  relax in the hammock, take a hike on one of the several hiking trails, or visit one of the many beaches in Dennis and Cape Cod.

Birds of a feather…  these four tiny house dwellers decided to “flock” together in a small community comprised of cute tiny homes!

Tony Diethelm created the Simply Home Community in Portland, Oregon. All four tiny homeowners knew each other beforehand, and Lina, who owns the Lucky Penny house in the community, helped Tony design his own tiny home.

the-lucky-penny-tiny-home-lina-menard-001

Lina and her cat, Raffi, are used to tiny dwellings, so they thoroughly enjoy this cozy Vardo-inspired Lucky Penny tiny house in Portland, Oregon, that Lina designed and helped build herself. The tiny home is a whopping 100.3 square feet, 14 1/2 feet long, 8 feet wide, 10 1/2 feet high. The “lucky penny” nickname comes from the fact that most of the interior and exterior are copper-colored, including the small refrigerator.

The front cedar porch folds up flat to allow transporting the home from one place to another.  As you enter the home, you will see a chest of drawers to the left, equipped with storage for jewelry, change, and receipts.  The top 3 drawers of the chest hold Lina’s wardrobe, the 4th drawer her shoes, and the bottom drawer contains Raffi’s litter box!  Lina cut a hole in the side of the bottom drawer with enough space for Raffi to squeeze in and out to do his business, while maintaining his privacy.

The open skylight running almost the entire length of the house provides more openness and brightness, allowing Lina and her kitty to enjoy the trees, birds and sunlight pouring through it.  The Tansu Japanese step chest that Lina found on Craigslist stores many items, while also allowing easy access to the upper loft where additional storage is located.
