Just look at this 300 sq. ft. Tudor cottage plan and facade. It’s a promise of a fairytale-style life! This adorable thing even has a walk-in closet! As an added bonus, the plan can be customized.

Another idea would be using this tiny cottage as a stand-alone home office or art studio. It could be a very nice addition to your existing real estate. Your real estate agent may give you some ideas on how to build it, so it will increase your property value.

If the cost of the construction is your main concern then order a prefab tiny house. Otherwise, this is one of those adorable small homes that you will be able to use for entertaining guests.
If you’ll decide to build this house, ask your local real estate agent what kind of customization needs to be done for improving your real estate resale value.
3. Tiny Modern Aesthetic

4. Enchanted Cottage
How to Build This Tiny House
Here is another tiny fairytale cottage that has all the features for happy living. The floor plan is not that tiny with a total living area of 544 sq/ft. In Japan, such square footage would be spacious enough to raise a family with 2 kids. In the Netherlands, a windmill tiny house was enough for a family with 13 kids (in the previous century, we must mention).
This is a real “real estate” charmer!
