It’s exciting to show you this classic 480 sq. ft. tiny cottage in Nashville, TN that’s available right now as a vacation rental.

I know, I know. This isn’t exactly the usual tiny house that we see built right onto a trailer but a structure like this still offers the simple life, doesn’t it? So if you’re seriously considering downsizing, going tiny, or you’re just not sure yet, one of the best ways to figure that out is to invest your next vacation time in a tiny house or a small house like this one.

Try tiny then try small if you have to! And even if you’re curious as to what it might be like to live in an RV or a houseboat, for instance, you can find a way to take an RV or houseboat vacation too. This way you don’t waste your time/money investing big bucks and lots of labor into something that wasn’t going to work out for you in the first place. Makes sense, right? So if you want to explore more tiny and small house vacations be sure to explore this category. But before you move on to that please enjoy and re-share this wonderful little cottage in Nashville below. Thank you!

Laneway houses—small houses built in backyards—are taking the Vancouver, Canada area by storm. A response to the ever-increasing population of the area, the laneway house is a great way to cope with the population density while still allowing citizens the feelings of permanence that come with living in single-family houses.

This particular laneway house is designed by Smallworks Studios and is 670 square feet. This home looks just like a miniature version of just about any traditional house you might see anywhere else. It even includes simple landscaping–in the form of small hedges—that makes this space feel even more like home.

With this house, you certainly would not lack in modern creature comforts. You would be surprised what can fit into 670 square feet of space. In this case, two bedrooms and two bathrooms easily fit into this 1.5-story home. This house also includes a kitchen/dining area, a living room, and a study.

The kitchen is particularly impressive as it easily houses all your necessary appliances—from a fridge and freezer, to a microwave, a sink, and a dishwasher. There is also still room for several cabinets and a pantry.

In terms of décor, this home is neutral with a few carefully placed splashes of color in areas like the bathrooms and the kitchen. It is perfect for those who prefer a subtler, more traditional style for their homes, and it makes a great addition to the small house movement.

If you’re into tiny living but know that you absolutely do need more space than I think might like this Lanefab 1020 sq. ft. small house with garage in Vancouver called the Newport Lane House. It’s built on a 50′ lot and the design offers one bedroom, one bathroom, and a garage for your car and/or hobbies. Pretty cool, right?

One of my favorite parts is not only that it has a garage because I’d like to take care of my car and store some of my stuff there but I also love the second level balcony to spend time outside on. And not to mention, how the kitchen area opens up to the outside. Super awesome!
