This is a tiny fisherman cottage in Hvide Sande which is a little town on the west coast of Jutland, Denmark. It’s the country’s fifth largest fishing port, according to Small House Bliss.

The neighborhood seems to be filled with other structures like this. Most of them are just small warehouses that are used to store fishing gear but many of them are not even being used anymore, so some people have decided to turn them into modern tiny homes inspired by the classic old fishing sheds.2 Pretty interesting, right?

This is a 800 sq. ft. off grid beach cottage located on Keewaydin Island, Florida that is only accessible by boat. The home was originally built in 1948 as a fishing cottage. When Sherry Irvin (Realtor in Naples, Florida), her husband at the time, and their two daughters (ages three and six at the time), moved into the small cottage, they updated the interior but kept the original wood floors. They also incorporated features in the home that we normally see in houseboats.

When you go inside you’ll find a kitchen, open living room with views of the ocean, two bedrooms, and one bathroom. To save space they removed all the doors in the home except in the bathroom where there was already a privacy curtain. They also added a large deck that is nearly the size of the home itself. They lived here for six years. And the children were best friends since they were the only kids on the island. They also got to go to school by boat rather than school bus. How cool is that? Sherry says she would live here again in a heart beat! So how would you like to live in a small home like this on an island? Let us know why or why not in the comments below.
