Mallory lived in the neighborhood of this adorable stone cottage and always wondered what it was like inside. When it came on the market, she knew she had to have it! She bought the space for $170,000 and started renovating the space to match her personal style.

The kitchen is a Barbie-pink masterpiece, complete with a pink refrigerator and cool paper-wrapped countertops. She has a massive and well-organized walk-in closet and lots of mushroom elements to stick to the “Mushroom House” theme. What do you think of her handiwork?

These small house plans would be perfect for anyone reaching retirement age. The single-level floor plan features a studio-style layout with the bedroom and living room dominating the space. There’s a comfortable L-shaped kitchen, a couple of closets, and a bathroom with a walk-in shower.

At 560 square feet, it’s just a bit more spacious than a “tiny home” and the added carport makes getting indoors in inclement weather that much easier.  Add a jacuzzi underneath the outside overhang! The plans for this are sold by The Small House Catalog.

Melanie and her husband have been living tiny now for nearly a decade! First they decided to renovate an Aistream, which they happily lived in for four years before deciding they were ready for sticks and bricks. That’s when they found this adorable 1953 bungalow and turned the 800 square foot space into their home sweet home.

They’ve been there now for five years, slowly remodeling the place as they had the funds (no construction loans here, woot!). The couple got in touch with us and did a great Q&A, which you can read after the tour of their little home. What do you think?

Get ready to tour one of the most precious small homes I’ve ever seen. I’m taking notes for our own small home — the way that Lynne and JR use vintage pieces in such practical and stylish ways to create a completely unique cottage is truly inspirational!

About 5 years ago they chose to sell their big home and buy their dream property on Lake Ontario so they could be mortgage-free. As such, they had to buy small (850 square feet) and they had to purchase a fixer-upper. They tore this little cottage down to the studs and have been working on making it home ever since.

Be sure to read our Q&A with Lynne, and also watch her video tour of her home where she gives great tips on living small even when you love decorating and collecting!

This solar-powered Chilean Cottage sits on the slopes of the Calbuco Volcano and has a wood-fired hot tub where you can soak after a long day of hiking the surrounding area!

The architecture on this Chilean Cottage is wonderful: The sloping roofline and gazebo-style living room area look so unique. And while this is a vacation property, add a stove and larger fridge and this could easily work for full-time accommodations!
