Someone was being cute, and managed to make it look good. A tiny house on Whidbey Island is listed at $99,000. It comes with a distinctive style that probably matched a distinctive personality.
The cottage is 480 square feet with 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom (though it looks like they managed to fit in a futon couch, too.) The size and the price can attract attention, but the decor is the thing that makes the house make a bigger impression. Sunflower wallpaper, swallow appliques, and a pastel paint scheme keep the small space bright and lively. Despite the size, there's a full bath plus a kitchen with modest sized range and refrigerator. The pegboard kitchen organizer is a nice and necessary touch.
While the inside decorations were well-thought through, the outside is a blank canvas. The 8,712 square foot lot is open and flat, with plenty of opportunities to do more than park an RV. Gardens, decks, maybe a gazebo, can all extend the cuteness outdoors. The 1976 house is simple, but not too simple; so there's little to get in the way of expressing yourself. With a price under a hundred thousand dollars, you may even have enough left over to play with.
