Several dozen cottages line a beach on the northeast coast of Funen, Denmark’s central island. Among them is this tiny house with roughly 16 m2 (172 ft2) on the ground floor, plus a sleeping loft.

The floor plan is almost square with the bathroom in one corner, and the kitchen and living/dining area arranged in an L shape around it. A 12-foot window wall, consisting of French doors flanked by fixed units, opens to a small brick terrace facing the water.

One quirk of the floor plan is that the bathroom door is on the exterior wall, so you have to step outside to reach it. The bathroom entrance is right next to the main entry door, so it is literally just a step outside, but most people would understandably prefer not to have to do that.

To install an interior door, the easiest option would probably be to move the bathroom sink to the opposite wall and cut a doorway through to the kitchen. Another possibility, if you could get permission, would be to expand the floor plan a bit and enclose the small section of walkway between the doors.

The tiny cottage is currently for sale and can be yours for just 295,000 Danish kroner, or a bit over US$45,000. However the home sits on leased land, which may explain why it has been on the market for almost a year with no takers.
