Small House












This home is located on a quiet East Bay block that is lined with cute California bungalows. Susan, the owner, will initially use this as extra space when her daughter, son-in-law, and grandchild, are visiting from their home in Israel.

A small guest home in California and built by New Avenue Homes.

    Cute but the bathroom is a bit too close to the kitchen for my taste.

      It IS a tiny house! It is good planning to have the kitchen and bath share a common wall for ease in plumbing.

    Really Nice. I could live here quite comfortably! Love the stairwell and how it seems to spill into the kitchen. Would be interested to know what it would cost to build one just like it elsewhere.

    I used to babysit your kids. We were friends in the 70’s. I remember one daughter was named Melon. Please contact me.

    This is lovely, I really like the design and layout.

    Great layout. Nice to see real wood trim stained dark instead of painted. The second story allows for more usable space and energy efficiency within a smaller footprint. I love the warm, inviting wood cabinetry in the kitchen. What brand of stainless refrigerator is that? Looking for one like that to fit the corner of my apartment kitchen without blocking access to the fuse box. Does the microhood vent to the outside or recirculate? The pops of color in the bathroom tile along the walls and floor give the space some life and show some originality when it comes to design. Only thing I would add are some sliding glass doors. They keep the water out of the rest of the bathroom and allow light to pass through for shaving. I really like the skylights, but some blackout shades or blinds that go across them with extension wands for adjustment would keep out the too-early sunlight that would get in my eyes in the morning.
