    Boy ! oh Boy! if I didn’t have my mortgage free little 800 sq ft house. This is something I’d would take in a heart beat. It has all I need and want . sizable walk in closet..ample kitchenette and all else neatly designed in one room.. Perfect set up..

    • Avatar Dominick Bundy July 29, 2016, 1:02 pm

      WAY WAY over priced!!! Over quarter million for a one room cottage . Are they crazy? nice little set up but I’d offer no more than 50 or 60 thousand tops for this little place..

      • Avatar Gigi July 29, 2016, 6:29 pm

        I am falling down laughing, Dominick. You can’t even get a tiny piece of land for that in a city like Seattle. So if you want to live in a high-tech urban area (as so many do) then you suck it up and pay the money. If you prefer a place in the boonies with less to offer in the way of good-paying jobs, excellent social and cultural amenities, and great schools, then by all means stay where you are. Either way, let’s respect the choices of others even if they are radically different from our own.

        • Avatar Dominick Bundy July 29, 2016, 6:51 pm

          Well I hope you didn’t hurt yourself falling down, Pick yourself up and find your composure. Before I respond. Thing is where does this “money come from? and what kind of jobs do people have to throw away money on such real state. Come on now you know how much more one can get for that asking price . 3oo thousand dollars is a lot of money to piss away on a tiny one room cottage. The object for going tiny I thought was to be mortgage free. and when the asking price is over quarter million.. Just doesn’t make any sense to me..When one could buy a much larger house or a duplex as a investment..as a tax wright off and income property as well..

          Seattle didn’t seem to be hit hard by the 2008 recession like so many other real estate markets. Housing costs have skyrocketed and never slowes down. It is sad, but a lot of people want to live here driving up prices.

  • Avatar Donna Crosland July 29, 2016, 1:13 pm

    unfortunately in Seattle for a small lot in that area without buildings is around $70,000+, then add the utility connections ect. and the tiny house and oh don’t forget the foundation and the you are looking at around $200,000 even at base price (I have found a similar model for $65,000 without upgrades). Building in the city – in a good location – is very hard here in Seattle on the budget

    • Avatar Dominick Bundy July 29, 2016, 2:15 pm

      Yes that is unfortunate . and ridiculous. One of the main objective to go small or tiny. is to be debt free and mortgage free. for those prices one would be right back to square one with mortgage , ( the one reason people wanted to be free from monthly expenses. living off the grid maybe..

      • Avatar Jane on Whidbey July 30, 2016, 6:39 pm

        Golden Gardens/Sunset Hills is a very nice neighborhood in Ballard, overlooking Puget Sound. Twenty-five years ago, this would have cost about $50-70k. Those days are long gone. Ballard is a shadow of its former self, because of all the condo towers. I’m shocked but not really surprised by this price these days. A tiny condo goes for well over $1ook, before fees. You could not bike or bus to downtown Seattle in 15 minutes from anywhere else in the country and still be by the water. I couldn’t afford it back when, and I sure couldn’t afford it today, but…..

        • Avatar Dominick Bundy July 30, 2016, 8:38 pm

          I realize that, But why isn’t there more of a outrage and protest. If people stopped paying these outrages increases. instead of just excepting what is offered..I think GREED has a lot to with with it all. as well..When will this insanity stop when it comes to the cost of things.. Ever notice that all those grossly over paid CEOS. salaries never seem to stay flat..
          ( no matter how many millions they earn) When will enough be too much and too much be enough? But so many get a bunch in their undies when it is suggested that the minimum wage be raise to a measly $15 / hr.. Sorry Alex I’ll stop ranting now. just had to get this point across about the objective of going tiny and how less can really be more if applied the right way

        • Avatar Lantz July 31, 2016, 11:15 pm

          In the 50s and 60s a CEO to workers wage was 40:1, now we are looking at 400:1. It’s beyond greed, it’s obscene.

      • Avatar Eric August 25, 2016, 6:14 am

        Au contraire Dominick… there are many reasons why people go small or tiny. Debt and mortgage free MAY be reasons for some people… but not all. Some people just want less space to look after. Some people (shame on them) want it to look cool and, ya know, environmentally friendly, even if it cost a zillion dollars.

        We live in a weird world Dominick, weird I tell ya.

        • Avatar Dominick Bundy August 25, 2016, 10:21 am

          LOL!! You’re not telling me something i’ve already known for years about the weird world we all live in..But so far I’ve never known anyone to have a zillion dollars. In fact one billion is way to much for just one person be allowed to have.. When will enough be too much . and too much will be enough? Money is power , and for all those “billionaires” out there gives you too much power over the majority.. Nobody should be allowed to have that much money anyway. I don’t care who they are and what good uses they put it to either.

  • Avatar amsterdamsel July 29, 2016, 1:31 pm

    Man, much as I love WA & OR tiny cottages, THoWs, and the like, nothing could get me remain in Wisconsin like the real estate prices elsewhere! OTT!

  • Avatar Paul July 29, 2016, 2:49 pm

    Insanely overpriced!! Something like this, in our area MIGHT reach 100 thousand –on a good day, and in the perfect location. Nice place though…

    • Avatar Dominick Bundy July 29, 2016, 7:01 pm

      Hi Paul I so agree, but even 100 thousand for just one room cottage is way to much. That place doesn’t come any where near 100 thousand the materials it took to build. seems like people have become so greedy when it comes to money.. ( and crazy on how they waste it) I can understand now why there is a growing population ridding themselves of all worldly possessions and living in a van off the grid.. Why be a slave to the banks and fork over your hard earned money for 30 years .. when there is another alternative way to live. besides helping the rich get richer..

  • Avatar ROSEE July 29, 2016, 2:51 pm

    I had a comment on this site at the beginning, Alex. What happened to it?

  • Avatar Marsha Cowan July 29, 2016, 2:57 pm

    I love the way everything is tucked away in its own ittle cubby.

  • Avatar Branden July 29, 2016, 5:47 pm

    While many will say this is extremely overpriced, such is the way of the Seattle market. It’s ALL overpriced. Not yet San Francisco, but crazy. A 5000 sq ft buildable lot in the Central Area (not the downtown core) will run about 500K, minimum. They’re being sold, even with older rental housing on them, for redevelopment. So you are competing with that crowd, not just those that simply want housing. This house is in a very nice area with good amenities within a quick bike ride or moderate walk. It’s triple what I paid for my first house in the Midwest, so I can understand folks level of disbelief!

  • Avatar Susan July 29, 2016, 7:57 pm

    No bedroom?

    • Avatar KC August 2, 2016, 8:55 pm

      Exactly my question!

  • Avatar Julie July 29, 2016, 9:56 pm

    I just don’t get it… Every tiny house worth having is so overpriced a person could live in a “normal” house with all the amenities and a piece of land. If the issue is downsizing and rightsizing, donate the things you don’t use and live in a minimalist environment that has room to roam and resale value. They make beautiful travel trailers that have most creature comforts if one insists on living with wheels underneath them. Everyone gets their own opinion but I am betting in 10 years Tiny Houses will go the way of hippy commune – peace, love and rock (or roll) on…..

    • Avatar Lantz July 31, 2016, 11:43 pm

      I would say the overpriced commercial THOW is what will go by the wayside. There will always be individuals who will be their own TH at a reasonable cost. After all that’s what started it all.

  • Avatar Sidney July 29, 2016, 10:39 pm

    Obviously the property is not overpriced, as it sold with less than 30 days on the market. If you live someplace where you could get a home 3x the size at 1/3 the price, then I’m sorry to tell you, but you do not live in a desirable area.

    That’s what people from rural areas fail to understand. Living in a major city is an entirely different ballgame, and if someone in tech is making a typical tech salary, then this little cottage is quite a deal. No neighbors above or below, a nice little garden and plenty of sunlight makes it a perfect little studio for someone with the means. Not to mention the fact that you could likely expand upwards and add a bedroom loft to add resale value.

    There is no “main objective” for going tiny. This little cottage could be very affordable to someone looking for a simplified life or a good investment if you’re looking to live in one of the most fantastic cities in America.

    • Avatar Jane on Whidbey July 30, 2016, 10:38 pm

      Exactly. I loved living there when I had an income! lol

  • Avatar ZACHARY E. MOHRMANN July 30, 2016, 3:38 am

    1/4 Million…? Are they kidding, I could get me a house across the street from the beach with private access for less… I would equally be near to shopping, and just cross the bridge to downtown, a hand full of marinas within a stones throw, and all kinds of eating, and small grocery shops within walking distance in either direction… Some just like to milk it for all they can squeeze out of good hard working folks..

    • Avatar Dominick Bundy July 30, 2016, 11:40 pm

      You hit the nail right on the head .. I so agree..It’s mostly about greed, love of money and nothing more.

    • Avatar Eric August 25, 2016, 6:16 am

      Not in Seattle you couldn’t. And therein lies the rub Zachary, therein lies the rub.

  • Avatar Jane on Whidbey July 30, 2016, 10:28 pm

    Location, location, location. If it weren’t so desirable, they wouldn’t get the price. Supply and demand. Yes, it really is that pricy. Seattle is out of my price range any more. It’s why I live in a thow, away from the city. It takes me a while to get there when I want to go, but I’m finding fewer and fewer reasons to leave the island. I haven’t been to Seattle for a year, and it’s only 25 miles away.

  • Avatar trent August 9, 2016, 7:24 am

    Really nice layout and it seems very comfortable!! But there is one setback for me carpet in the kitchen like no. Safety hazard!

  • Avatar ZACHARY E. MOHRMANN August 25, 2016, 6:35 am

    It shouldn’t be about location at all it should be one standard price, with the exception of material costs…. They are not selling us property they are selling us houses…. Only you can put the value on a view or location…. They are contractors not Gods…. They do not crate your house’s surroundings… !

    • Avatar Jane on Whidbey August 25, 2016, 7:27 pm

      Zachary, you have to make me laugh. Sure, one standard price. Dream on.

  • Avatar ZACHARY E. MOHRMANN August 25, 2016, 9:14 pm

    I meant per square footage, not per house…! With only the exception to special materials that you may request to be added… Some where there should be a standard on what we pay per square foot of building, or these crazy will drives us all out into the cold…! They are asking in some cases 10 times what a normal houses being built would cost… And the bigger problem is that people who can afford it and want to just be trendy pay these astronomical prices, and then folks who originally started out to improve their lives and get out from those heavy mortgages are screwed because they now can’t afford the tiny house because the market has gone all to hell…! Still want to laugh then….!
