The home, 2508 N.W. 67th St., is just 370 square feet, which explains why a house in Loyal Heights is listed for just $275,000.” – seattlepi.com
Very nice tiny home. Great photos too (by Michael Harris/Windermere Real Estate). I’m just still surprised to see that some folks still think $275,000 is a low price for a tiny-small home… must be the location.
On the positive side, this example might convince some tiny house skeptics that allowing micro housing in cities might just improve neighborhood home values – (hint: so make them legal!) In fact tiny homes can, and often do, fill those gaps left between larger homes in high density locations and allow for more diversity.

Schlage, the lock manufacturing company, working with Young & Laramore, an advertising agency, came up with this brilliant marketing campaign that featured a tiny house at it’s core… a tiny house by Seattle Tiny Homes. Adrienne from Young & Laramore told me:
“We partnered with Seattle Tiny Homes to lock a guy in a house for a week and challenged people in the Seattle area to participate in a 5-day scavenger hunt to find the key and let him out- the winner received $5,000. People were “wowed” by the house and enthusiastic about the Key to Strong Challenge. The campaign was so successful that Schlage is looking into bringing the challenge to other cities. “
It sounds like it turned into a fun event and a win-win for everyone – especially the guy that finally got out of the house and the gal that won the prize! Thanks for sharing Adrienne!

Sharon Read, founder of Seattle Tiny Homes, places dishes in the dining area in the Ballard model home that she created.
The company debuted its first model in February during an environmental trade show and the buzz hasn’t stopped since, Read said.
She recently provided a tour of the first home she designed, a 174-square-foot unit made for small families.”
