This is one couple’s fisherman’s tiny cottage in Ballard. It’s a backyard tiny home they built which was featured over at the Seattle Backyard Cottage blog. I love backyard tiny homes like this because they’re a wonderful way to (legally) get more small and tiny houses built.
This idea reminds me of the article we did on the city who is encouraging homeowners to build backyard tiny homes. It’s such a great idea, isn’t it? Anyway, take a look at this beautiful little cottage below and let us know what you think about it in the comments. You can also read the interview with the couple who built it over at Seattle Backyard Cottage’s original article on it.

This is the story of how backyard tiny houses are helping to solve California’s housing problem, specifically in Clovis city where city planners have made it easier for homeowners to build a backyard tiny cottage on their current lot. Here’s how it works…
They are giving homeowners three house plans to choose from (for free). The designs are 400-square-feet or less and are only available to homeowners in the area who have a lot with access to an alleyway, which is common in Old Town Clovis. There are other perks and incentives, too. But what’s the catch? This is having an overall very positive impact on the community so it’s a win/win for the city and the homeowners. Do you think other townships should take notice of this strategy?

When this teenager needed to get out of the house, Molecule Tiny Homes came to the rescue to help the family build this 6×10 treehouse-inspired tiny home that’s 16′ tall!
Best of all, it was built using mostly scrap materials and reclaimed lumber. Even better, it only took them a week to finish it! Talk about professionals…
If you’re interested in something like this (NOT on wheels) it’s possible for Molecule to design and build a similar unit for you and it can be transported on its side to your location. Pretty cool, right?
How would you like to have this tiny little escape in your backyard? I’d rent my house out and move in the backyard to live rent-free while someone else helps pay the mortgage! How about you? Either way- please enjoy and re-share this one with your tiny house friends below. Thanks!
