    What a lovely small home….and I use the word ‘home’, because it looks like a well-loved place to dwell. That’s what sets it apart from a house. Just beautiful! I could easily picture myself living in this for the rest of my days. Thanks for sharing!

    This is my favorite yet. So the bedroom is connected to the living room? I see where there are separate doors to each. Also is there a shower and bathroom? I saw the sink. What about square footage and a floor plan? Thanks!

    Very sweet. And just right. Yes, please provide plans – there are a few gaps to understanding how this all ties together.

    By the way, your description in the e-mail of “clapperboard” is a little off. It should be clapboard, or claboard, I think. A clapperboard is the thing they use to start a take on a film. Not clabberd, which is something you do to curdle cream.

    Lovely cottage. Very tranquil but simple and extremely well decorated.
    (btw, this is a cottage on the Isle of Wight, to let. The link is at the bottom.)

    Beautifully done, classy, country and practical. Perfect mix of country style and practicality. I want one! Can you provide a floor plan and square footage?

    We are getting ready to do a renovation on our kids pool house to move into. It look almost like your house from the out side. What is the square footage? The pool house right now is completely open. There is a little under 500 square. We are raising the ceilings for a loft guest sleep area. Love your cottage.

    I am in love with that stove! Not seen one like it before!

    Are there floor plans available or just dimensions of the building?

    Why no answer to all the inquiries concerning floor plans and dimensions? One would think that customers or potential customers would deserve a reply. I would also like to receive information on the floor plans and dimensions. I really hate trying to estimate by looking at the lengths of boards and the size of appliances in the photos… that isn’t as accurate. Thanks

      they aren’t looking to sell anything…. just pictures to look at……

    Looks like the kind of house you would find in Carmel or Laguna Beach. Nice very very nice. Needs a stove or fireplace in the bedroom.

    This place is a dream! One question….why two front doors? Is there a double shed that was put together? Sure would love the plans to this. If you’ve ever downsized or purged your material things, you see how freeing it is. (I’ve done it twice, but the stuff keeps piling back). If you get a tiny house, then there’s no place to grow, so you’re forced to live minimally.

    People keep asking questions here, but there’s no one to answer them! This is just a site for sharing photos. For more information, you can always try clicking the link. The one that says “More info here.”
