This little cottage sits near Cape Cod Bay in Massachusetts. In winter, when the leaves have fallen, you can view the bay through the trees. We don’t know how old the cottage is but it did belong to the current owner’s grandparents. It was, however, recently renovated, so the interior is up-to-date while still in keeping with the age and character of the cottage.
The cottage started out as a high post half Cape. Typical Cape Cod houses are categorized as quarter, half, three-quarter or full Cape, depending on the number of windows along the front. Often a young family would start by building a half Cape, with two windows on one side of the front door, and later expand it to a three-quarter or full Cape with either one or two windows on the other side of the door.
This one was expanded more haphazardly though, with a shed-roofed addition at one end for the living room and a hip-roofed addition at the other end containing the bathroom. There is also a storage shed stuck to the back side. The kitchen and dining room are in the original cottage. That oldest part is dressed up with built-up crown moldings along the roof eaves together with gable end cornice returns. The additions are much plainer, trimmed out with flat facia boards.
The term “high post” refers to walls that extend vertically above the lower-level ceiling, increasing the usable space upstairs. This one also has two large dormers, likely newer additions, which raise the ceiling to at least 7′ over most of the upper floor. That gives room for a relatively spacious bedroom suite including a half bath.
This tiny cottage is available for vacation rentals through Airbnb.

In the Tiny House: A Poem Video:
Texas-based designer, Kim Lewis, designed this home for a couple who make a living as wildlife educators and bird experts. Working with builders at Canyon Creek Builder, they were able to make a beautiful 192 sq ft tiny house called the “Bird’s Nest”.
The home has an exterior made from salvaged pieces from a home demolition. Inside is a full kitchen, living room space, bathroom, and a loft bedroom. There’s also a deck that can fold against the home.
You can also see the building process of the home from its feature on Tiny House Nation here.

I started to install the plumbing for running water in my tiny house on wheels. I had already installed the drain for the kitchen sink so that was out of the way. Now it is time to get running water going in my tiny house .,
I am working from the kitchen sink up to the loft where the water tanks will be.
First though I had a water tank out on the porch with some water in it to check for leaks.
While that was sitting there for a while I worked on the plumbing inside the tiny house .
Going from the kitchen sink up to the tank worked better for me since the tank was outside and the kitchen sink was there in front of me.
First I drilled a hole through the bathroom wall into the kitchen to run the PEX tubing through. Then I ran the tubing all the way through, under the kitchen counter and to the sink.
I had already installed the flex hoses and valves under the kitchen sink. I had both turned off for safety.
My first permanent connection was from the main PEX line to the kitchen cold water line. It sure felt good to be getting this going finally after all these months.
Next I cut some of the old barn wood I have outside to support the water tanks and distribute the weight evenly over the bathroom wall.
The boards are 9 inches wide by 1 5/8 inches thick and 4 feet long. Two of these side by side gives me enough support under the tanks. This should take the weight nicely. And these are old barn wood so the grain is more dense as well.
