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 a beautiful cottage in Washington state called the Beltane Cottage.

Take a long stone pathway through surrounding gardens and you’ll find yourself at the entrance to this light orange cottage and it’s cranberry red door. There’s a small porch by the front door made of rustic wood for sitting and enjoying the outdoors. The 961 square feet cottage includes a one car garage and the house is one of the Greenwood Avenue Cottages, so you’ll be surrounded by other beautiful homes and wonderful landscaping.

When you go inside, you’ll find an open floor plan complete with tall white ceilings and a large skylight. There’s a loft area for guests and seating, but downstairs includes an office space and built-in cabinets for books and knick-knacks. The kitchen has fun black, green and white tiled floors, full-size kitchen appliances, and a wonderful breakfast nook with a bay of windows. The living area includes pine flooring, a wood-burning stove, and couches and chairs for relaxing. Upstairs houses the bedroom and bathroom, also featuring pine flooring and beautiful white-washed walls.
