Open House at the Bayside Bungalow

Many people over the past year have asked if they could see the Bayside Bungalow and check out the tiny little house that I now rent out as a vacation rental. And so, the time has come for a (tiny) Open House!

Are you interested in exploring, testing, touching, trying, photographing, peeing in (the composting toilet – duh!), measuring & learning more about tiny houses? Then this is for you! Learn about how it was built, why I decided to build it, how it works, what goes in (water, electricity & food) and how it all comes out (gray water, urine-diverting toilet system), and most of all – does it fit YOU? Bring on the questions! Bring a sketchpad, measuring tape, and camera & explore this tiny house.

Brittany’s Bayside Bungalow for Rent

Hi folks! My tiny house, the Bayside Bungalow, in Olympia, Washington is available for rent this winter. I’m looking for a full-time renter from December or January through April. Tiny houses in the Northwest fare much better in the winter when someone is living there full-time running the water & keeping the heat on (i.e. no frozen tiny pipes!). And now with the Envi heater AND Dickenson stove, it’ll stay nice and cozy! The house sits on waterfront property on the shore of the Puget Sound, in a rural, quiet setting, which is 15 minutes from downtown Olympia.

Tiny Pumpkin House

by Brittany Yunker

I carved this little tiny house pumpkin last weekend and just had to snap some photos of it. I was trying to find an original design to carve on my pumpkin but it seemed like nothing I was finding online or coming up in my mind with piqued my interest – and then I thought: Why not carve a tiny house in a pumpkin?

I used a clove for the doorknob and toothpicks for the windows, a zucchini for the stovepipe, sliced potatoes for the shingles and decorative mini-pumpkins for the “wheels”. Pretty cute, eh?
