Welcome to Tiny Homes, an idea that is more popular with minimalists than with neighborhood associations and zoning boards. We'll point out the fun parts. You'll have to check out the logistics and legalities - but this one is considered 'vintage', so it has evidently aged on site.
A tiny home (260 square feet) that's also a long game (on the market for 880+ days) that's also a beach cabin, how many more ways are there that make this house unique? If the salt waters of Puget Sound aren't enough ocean-y for you, then maybe you just have to get out to Moclips and check out a tiny house that's beachfront. The layout is the tiny version of a great room, which means it is more like a studio with everything except the shower in the same room. They're asking $281,000, which is buying a view as much as it is buying a house. The lot is 5,250 square feet, so there's room to expand, but tiny house advocates may just leave it as is. The interior may be relatively small, but the exterior is a broad Pacific beach (at low tide) backed by the great Pacific Ocean. If you telecommute, log in and work with a magnificent backdrop. If you need to get away from all that technology, head out there and turn off your phone and the router. You'll have a sanctuary that can't require too much maintenance, has the looks of a classic cottage, and could possibly float during a storm surge if given enough buoyancy (Guessing those life rings on the siding are for show, but they could come in handy).
