Tiny Houses! In Maine
You must go to the website Perfect Little Houses right now. Then go to Tumbleweed Houses and look at them. The last place is Tiny Texas Houses. Go on, I’ll wait.
Are they not AMAZING? That is everything I want in a vacation home/compound. I say compound because we have a brand new house we built in Maine last year on my H’s land.
Isn’t that adorable? It’s a 2/1 place, with a ton more room than it looks/sounds like. I am DYING to get in there and decorate/liven it up.
Anyway, my Big Idea is to rent the place as a summer vacation home to other people until such time as we can use it ourselves. And then, I want to add on via various small buildings, much the way the home in this post looks to have done.
So I’ve been looking at ways we could add on and give us additional cottages to bring in rental income, as well as places for my family to come up and enjoy the fabulous summer weather up there (it’s like a Texas Spring, in July).
And sincerely, I can’t get this sweet cottage setup out of my mind. I even like the odd angling of the outbuilding. I know we’ll add a garage with an apartment above it first, and after that, I’m sure I’ll have more ideas than I know what to do with.
For now though, I’m forced to make plans from afar for the grounds, the interior, and then I can probably move on to more concrete decisions about fictional outbuildings. I’m planning on two, one for my parents and one for my best friend and brother to split time at.
After seeing the tiny houses, do you have the urge to buy a property and just fill it with them? I am dying to build one, they’re so small that I think we could do it on our own without subcontracting anything beyond the required plumbing/electricity.
Would you rent one if there were other renters you didn’t know at the same compound?
