12×12 Cottage Cabin with Loft and Shed Dormer

Love the look of this tiny house kit! Here’s what the company that sells it says:

This compact 12 x 12 cabin has an 8 x 12 enclosed space, and is considered to be under 100 sq. ft. by most permitting authorities. The 10 / 12 roof pitch and optional extra height give plenty of room in the loft for sleeping. Ventilation is provided by a double opening triangular window. The dormer on the front and the shed dormer on the back further increase the room in the loft.” – Cabana Village

Cottage Cubed – A Renovated Fisherman’s Cottage

With only 25 m2 (270 ft2) of interior space, there was very little room to fit the requirements of modern life. Architect Colm Doyle’s solution was to design a plywood box that sits in the tiny cottage, defining the spaces around it. The sitting room is to one side, the kitchen is on the opposite corner, and they are linked by a small entry hall alongside the box. A staircase built into the box leads up to a sleeping loft on top, and a bathroom and storage space are contained within it.” – Small House Bliss
