If the interior of this tiny cube house is confusing, don’t worry, I was pretty baffled by it myself until I read the description.
It has three floors, so when you first walk in you have to take the stairs to the first floor.
That’s where you have the living room with TV and the kitchen.
Go up another level and you have the bedroom.
On the top floor there’s even an area with a 360 degree view!

At some point in my life, I’m going to make it a point to make it here! I’d LOVE to stay in this house. How about you?

“Designed like an umbrella perched on the side of a mountain, the vaulted ceilings and glass walls let you feel like you are floating in the trees with the hummingbirds and finches! Artsy and modern yet woodsy and rustic, this is a fantastic escape from fast paced DC or Richmond city life.” (source)

This rustic and modern tiny house has its own entrance and private front yard which is gated. The owners built it on their property because they always wanted to build a house themselves and they did it with the help of friends. When you first enter the house you’re in the kitchen, living area and that’s also where the bathroom is. Go upstairs and you’ve got a sweet loft with a queen bed.
It was built using mostly reclaimed materials and furnishings. Some of the wood, trim and shelving came from an old shed that used to be on the property. More “unwanted” wood was harvested from high end construction job sites. Some of the windows came from an old horse farm structure. And the kitchen stove and refrigerator came from a museum.

Would You Add a Loft to this Shotgun Shack Tiny House?
Isn’t this tiny shotgun shack cottage just awesome? To me it’s like an oversized tiny house on wheels except this one doesn’t have a loft. If it were mine, I’d definitely add a loft into the design. I’d most likely use it as the bedroom and convert the existing space that’s used as a room into my office.
Foundation Tiny Houses Better for Couples & Families?
I can see a slightly larger design like this working better for couples and small families who want to live tiny/small for a longer period because of the extra space. That’s where it pays to plan to build on a foundation instead of on a trailer even though you lose the mobility.
What Would You Change to Make it Yours?
What would you change about this little house to make it yours? I’m also curious, if you’re building in the future, do you plan on doing it on a foundation so you can go larger or do you plan on building on wheels?

“This charming house has central air, jacuzzi tub, rain shower head, flat screen TV, and private backyard area. Two blocks from Magazine Street, restaurants, coffee houses, shops and much more.

“A completely renovated, Jane Coslick-designed duplex! A building that started out as quarters used for soldiers during the Spanish-American War, this duplex is directly behind Officer’s Row and has another Mermaid Cottages’ property, Enlisted Men’s Mess Hall/Screened Inn duplex, as a next-door neighbor! This beautiful duplex has been lovingly renovated and is bright, colorful and a showcase of Jane Coslick’s unique and professional beach cottage renovation and décor style!” (source)
