The Perfect Tiny House

Now that I’m back in the States I’m spending a lot of time catching up on all the HGTV I missed over the last two years. Right now I am in love with the show Tiny House, Big Living. When my husband and I bought our first house at 24, it was a modest 750 sq ft, mostly because that was all we could afford. At the time I thought it was tiny but in the realm of tiny houses it was huge. The shed we had out back was more the size of what this show features.

After 18 years of marriage and collecting I wonder, how do you live in a tiny house? Where do you put that great score you got from Home Goods? Is there even a place to huff off and slam the door when your mad? I’ve done a lot of moves that have required living in a hotel room for long periods of time, let me tell you, NOT FUN! But could a perfectly planned and organized tiny house really work? Well I ran across this tiny beach house that might make me reconsider…

This cutie is 336 sq ft and is on Camano Island in Washington state. It most recently sold in 2013 for $369,000. That’s a bit more than my 750 sq ft for $70,000 but then again it is a lot nicer.

I’d have to add a splash of color of course but this house is otherwise amazing.

Just one large room, but I do see a bathroom over there for cases of extreme huffiness and door slamming.

but what a lovely room it is.

and the bathroom, I could be huffy in here all day.

The real selling feature is not indoor space but the amazing outdoor space.

I could score a few things from Home Goods to go out here, maybe a garden stool or an amazing patio set?

And the view…1433965689-is99h4d88cfgju0000000000

This kind of view might make me a little less likely to get huffy, EVER…
