There’s nothing better than a completely one-of-a-kind build, and that’s what KimAnna’s DIY Mermaid Cottage is! The cordwood-and-glass-bottle cabin is whimsical and eclectic — despite the seaside name, it’s sitting in the High Desert miles and miles from any ocean!
That said, the bathroom and shower in the cabin will transport you to the beach immediately. There’s a little kitchenette, a queen bed on the main floor, and a dining area. KimAnna lives in a log cabin on the property, where she cares for rescue animals and grows food in a dome fed with algae water! What a fun spot.

The bathroom is possibly the most fantastic part of the build.
There is so much brilliant color indoors!
KimAnna is a remarkable woman.

Absolutely wonderful! A cordwood house is my next dream! I already have the wood, just need the time. Lol! Of course, I’m not an artist like you, so there will probably be no perfectly lovely glass bottles and artifacts. You’re amazing! Your home is spectacular.
All I can say is: that is a lot
I really love this house. So creative. Though there is a reason for a flushing toilet to have a door. And here it is missing. Which could lead to some bad stomach infection, when vapor from the toilet mixes with the food in the kitchen right on the other side of the small wall. It is not enough to have a curtain. The air will still mix. That is also why building codes often state, that toilets/bathrooms are not allowed to open up into a kitchen – which is a bit difficult in a tiny house. But at least you should have a door. One could build a glass wall and door, so it is still possible to see the creative design – I mean who can not love this house.
Actually, the spray from the toilet doesn’t spread that far unless it’s unobstructed and even a curtain is still a barrier. So the way microorganisms actually spread to the kitchen is via physical contact. Often because people miss secondary sources of contamination, like door knobs…
Besides, just leaving the lid closed before flushing eliminates most of the issue with the flush spray.
