You Will LOVE the ceilings in this Charming Tiny Home
Into small house design? You will LOVE the ceilings in this charming tiny home. Small house living is gaining a lot of attention, and many people are downsizing to make the switch to minimalistic living. Living in a smaller home used to come with the implication that the people living in it were poor and didn't have enough money to purchase a large house which has been thought of as reaching an important goal in life. But as time goes on, people are beginning to realize that having a big house isn't all that it's cracked up to be, and living small means having more freedom and time to do other things we love. People are tired of having a large house and all of the responsibility and maintenance it brings, so they downsize to a small house design and decrease their belongings. Small house design means having less square footage to fill up, so it costs less to furnish and maintain. So whether you're retiring, a new home owner or you're wanting to downsize, small house living can be just what you are looking for to make desired changes to simplify your life.
The Cottage Company features communities of cottage-like homes like this house from Conover Commons Cottages. The little houses that make up Conover Commons Cottages are located near Kentwood and Redmond, in Washington, close to Seattle. The Cascade mountains are visible from the little houses, making it a very beautiful place scenically, and also quite quiet considering it's not in the city. Each of the little houses are designed unique, and no two are the same, ensuring that just like any neighborhood, people are able to express their individuality through their homes. The beautiful community has won awards for being the best community, and usually their homes sell pretty quickly if they go up on the market. Like this Kvale Hytte Cottage for example. This small house design was created in 2004 by Ross Chapin Architects and sold for $546,000. This small home is a great example of just how spacious small house design can actually be. It's all a matter of utilizing the space to its maximum potential as we can see in the photos on The Cottage Company website. The home is also Green 3 Star Certified, meaning that it has a low operating cost and works very efficiently. Not only good for the wallet but good for the environment too which is so important.
The small home is engulfed by the most beautiful garden which adds so much to the value of the home and, of course, the inside is just as stunning as the outside. The ceilings are nice and high, with skylights and drop down pendant lighting. A nice, tall ceiling helps in any small house design to draw the eye upward, creating the illusion of more space. The total square footage of the house is 1069, which is actually a great size. There are also two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms in the home which makes it great for two or three people. The loft area has its own bathroom too. No small house design would be complete without the addition of great outdoor patio space, which this tiny house has lots of. There is a nice patio on the front, as well as on the back of the house, looking out into the forest. Outdoor living spaces extend the space of little houses and provide the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors. Enjoy taking some inspiration from these beautiful little houses to perhaps implement into your own small house design.***
