There’s a big kitchen space with full-sized appliances and two bathrooms. When you want to enjoy the outdoors, you can either sit by the fire pit or take a winding path down to the private hot tub. What do you think of this space?

Recently we got in touch with Frankie who renovated an old pigeon coop with her husband, Hector, and created an adorable vacation cottage in Fort Myers, Florida called “The Coop.” As dog lovers, they made sure this was a “big-dog-friendly” cottage and welcome vacationers to come with their pets.

The coop has a grand kitchen area with *all* the appliances, a lovely 3/4 bathroom, and a bedroom space with a queen bed and a couch. Be sure to read our interview with Frankie below as she shares all the details of the home and what inspired the build!

This itty bitty cottage on Cape Cod has been named the “Sand Pebble,” which perfectly sums up the feeling inside this beachy tiny home.

This quaint cottage in the Yorkshire Dales surrounded by stunning English gardens is just the place for inspiration on converting your shed into a tiny dwelling!

David took his shed, added heated floors, running water, and a bathroom, and created a perfect secluded guest room with everything you need for a weekend stay. There are even tiny skylights to add some extra sunshine. He also painted the inside a lovely sage green (instead of the standard white/cream), which makes the place particularly cozy.

Enjoy the tour of this special spot below, and book your stay on Airbnb.

Coming in at 280-square feet, the Honeycrisp Cottage in Southern Vermont is a dreamy energy-efficient getaway, and a tiny house design worth bookmarking for your future build!

This home (@honeycrisp_cottage on Instagram) would make a perfect granny flat because of the open floor plan and downstairs bedroom, but really anyone interested in going tiny could enjoy this space! The Airbnb hosts designed the home themselves and included a floorplan (you can see below). They hired out some work and DIYed the rest, and the total cost to build was around $75,000. Book your stay on Airbnb!
