This is a tiny house and small cottage combo by Kanga Room Systems in Texas. The main cottage is 16×40 and the tiny house is 12×14.

It may sound crazy to think that some people build the backyard Kanga Room to live in while they rent out the main house on the property, but it happens more often than you think! 12×14 Cottage featured.

In this case Kanga Room Systems built this 14×14 studio cottage for a client who wanted craft space plus an area for their grandkids to play in while they’re over.

I can easily see how this tiny cabin can be turned into a tiny home though and that’s why I’m sharing it with you right now. Although tiny shelters can be used in many ways (like a studio, playhouse, office, or tiny guest room), I can’t help but think of how you can turn it into a space for full time simple living. In this case we would need a kitchenette, tiny bathroom, and probably an upstairs sleeping loft to make this tiny cottage a home.

How would you make this 14×14 tiny shelter your own? Please enjoy, re-share, and tell us your best thoughts in the comments below. Thank you!

I first showed you this cabin back in 2014 when I first discovered it. Now it’s 2020 and the design seems very relevant. It’s a Kanga cabin and it’s perfectly designed for a live/work lifestyle. The sort of lifestyle that many of us are now living in because of quarantine and covid-19.

I’m excited to share this 504 sq. ft. modern cabin by Kanga Room Systems with you. I know. It’s not exactly tiny (maybe to some of you) but it’s most certainly small. And I’m not sure about you, but to me, something like this would be an absolutely perfect long-term solution. The home consists of two units with a 10′ covered breezeway/porch/outdoor living area connecting the two units.

A 14’x20′ (280 sq. ft.) unit gives you your living area and kitchen while another 14’x16′ unit (224 sq. ft.) features your bedroom, bathroom, and utility closet. Pretty cool, right? And if you don’t like ladders staircases it’s perfect because there are no sleeping lofts. It’s a one-level design.

If you live and work from home and share your home with loved ones, this is absolutely perfect because you have a separate structure for peace and quiet while your significant other can use the other area as they wish without distracting you during periods of focus and concentration. Please enjoy, let me know how you like it in the comments and re-share below!

This is a 14′ by 20′ Kanga Tiny House int he city! It’s great because since it’s built on a foundation, the design is not subject to road limitations. For most people, something like this would be a better long-term solution versus a tiny house on wheels, don’t you think?

Tiny homes like this are a great option and they can still be very versatile. In many neighborhoods, you might already be allowed to build something like this in your backyard. You may be able to qualify for it as a guest house, pool house, accessory dwelling unit, in-law suite, etc.
