Stevie sent us pictures of the awesome 8×17 vacation cottage he built from an old playhouse. What was simply a shell, he spent the last 3 years transforming into a fully-livable little home complete with a kitchen, nearby bathhouse (plumbed!), loft bed and comfy sitting area.
I actually see these for sale on Facebook Marketplace pretty frequently. Maybe we should buy one and work on making it into an awesome Airbnb cottage!

Adorable 8×17 Vacation Cottage
The inside, like the exterior, is painted white.
I love the funny coffee stools!
There’s a futon for comfortable seating.
Even snuck a TV in here!
Sink, mini-fridge and microwave.
Another look at the groovy stools.
Here you can see a hot plate tucked under the counter.
Some kind of stove or convection oven here.
There’s a bed in the loft.
Love the Dutch door!
The ladder takes you up to the loft.
Cute hunter green trim and shutters.
Yes there’s a bathroom!
The wallpaper is fun.
Gotta love a clawfoot tub.
Philadelphia Cottage 8×17 with full kitchen, hot and cold running water, stainless steel sink ,stove top dual burners, toaster oven, griddle. Coffee pot, stainless steel refrigerator, microwave oven, plenty of hidden storage, living room, flat screen TV and DVD player, stereo, cozy electric fireplace, air conditioning, twin size loft bed, full queen size futon sofa, covered front porch, flagstone rear patio, separate full bath house with clawfoot tub/shower just a few feet from the cottage, swimming pond with waterfall, all located on gated lush garden grounds along with 1903 stone mansion.
This was a playhouse I bought for $450.00. With nothing but the roof, bear wood walls ,and floor.I spent over 3 years and about 25 thousand dollars converting it into a fully functional, independent living space including a separate fully functioning bath house. There is an entire house neatly fitted into approximately 150 square feet. Very cozy and charming tapestry walls on top of natural wood bead board.
