Oftentimes not only is building a tiny house illegal but so is building a small one. One way to get around it, is by building what’s called an Accessory Dwelling Unit, or an ADU for short, if eligible.

Then this ADU can be operated as a guest house, in-law suite, vacation home, Airbnb, or what-have-you. That’s what Bunch Design did in Los Angeles, California with this Highland Park 850-sq.-ft. small home. Check it out! What do you think of small homes around this size?

Larry contacted us to show us his gorgeous creation, the Casa Maria. He built this vacation home about four years ago in Costa Rica for less than $60,000.

Including the loft space, the home comes to 764 square feet. It’s built out of cypress wood, and has asphalt roofing. Underneath the neat curved roofline of the house is a carport and laundry room. The main living space is wide-open with couches, a fireplace, kitchenette and pool table. There’s a bedroom and a bathroom, as well.

Enjoy the photo tour of Larry’s wonderful small home!

This is to show you some really-cool graffiti art done by Justin Lopez behind a clawfoot tub, inside of a newly-built Texas shotgun cottage by Plum Construction.

It’s one of the many small cottages with tiny house style designed and built by Christine and her crew, by Plum Construction, out of Galveston, Texas. What do you think? Pretty cool, right?
