    Wow! Amazing home. It’s a one of a kind. I love the windows and window boxes and the tiny kitchen. I love the doors that open on the side, too. This is great!

    These are my favorite kind of Tiny homes! Absolutely one-of-a-kind! I love the little holes in the upper walls that let in light. My favorite part is definitely the entry way. Bravo!
