Small Cottage

Tasmanian Cottage










I have attached some photos of the small house I designed and built at Port Sorell in Tasmania – it is only 81.75 sq. m (8.8 imp. sq) but it feels much more spacious because it is full of light and open space. It is low maintenance and passive solar design and is a lovely place to live in.

    Hi, lovely to see your small house! I also live in Tasmania in a small(er) house – ours is just 6om Most of my friends cant believe how we live in such a little space – but, as you show, it is easy to!

    Yay, an Aussie home! Congratulations, this home is truly lovely. The use of white and timber in the kitchen/dining is great and I really like the wardrobe doors. I could on (and on), there are several ideas I could use at home.

    Simply beautiful!
    I am building a tiny house in Bandera, Texas and wonder if you would consider selling or offering the blueprints from your design?
    many thanks, Elizabeth

      I too, would be interested in obtaining a copy of the blueprints or floor plan of this home. Lovely design!

        Hi, how did the build in Bandera, Texas go? What are the laws with tiny houses?

  • Reply Annette January 25, 2015 at 10:22 pm

    Love this home just right except for the bath tub, rather a shower. Is there storage too?

    I’ve been looking at houses under 1000 square feet and this is one of the best! I love the kitchen/living room together and how filled with light the whole house is. The outside is lovely, too. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house.

    I have looked at several tiny homes and this is the one I love the most. It is beautiful!

    This is one of my favorite style tiny houses and I’m considering building a tiny house sub-division in East Texas on land purchased by my great grandfather in the late 1800’s. It has all utilities and roads to it and is within the city limits of a city of about 80,000 people, has several small colleges and major hospitals there and an Amtrak station located downtown. (Two hours to Dallas/Ft.Worth by train). Any ideas from those that commented would be appreciated. I am not a builder or developer but could hire a capable lot/home builder to get that done. My wife and I would build in this community as well and I’d like it to be gated. Sites could be 1-5 acres because there’s no shortage of land. Your thoughts and ideas would be appreciated.
