Beth’s tiny California cottage
Our friends at Apartment Therapy hold an annual Small Cool Home contest, inviting readers to submit photos and a written description of their own small homes. The 2010 winner of the “Teeny Tiny” division, encompassing homes up to 400 ft2 (37.2 m2), was Beth. She makes her home in the gem of a cottage pictured here.
Beth’s small cottage is surrounded by lush gardens in the hills of Sausalito, California. Built sometime in the 1930’s, the tiny cottage has just 365 ft2 (33.9 m2), smaller than most two-car garages. Yet, it doesn’t seem that small. While the kitchen is indeed cramped, the rest of the house appears quite comfortable.
Beth has made the space look larger by using glass-topped tables and white upholstered pieces that recede visually, but balanced them with bright bold colors in the artwork and accessories.

I love this house. A very clever use of space. Minimal and small can be very cozy and comfortable indeed. I have never liked BIG houses. To me they are cold and uninviting.
I absolutely love this cottage! Wonderful use of space, so bright and lovely!
Now this one I like. How much would it cost to have something like this built in Florida?

Are there any restrictions on how small a house can be? Electrical and Water? Been looking into going tiny house, would like to have solar and wind powered.
Yes, How much would it cost to have one built or do they come pre built and put them together on site..In Florida, I was going to get 2 Small 10′ x 25′ Shed’s that had electric, but they said they weren’t made for Hurricanes here in Florida..
This is a Beautiful home. Almost exactly what we want. I hope you enjoy your life in your home forever!!!
