Kent, here is a photo of the cottage that I lived in during college. Later, my family of four lived here for a summer. The house sits in the backyard of my parents home, and they currently use it for morning prayer, coffee, and breakfast on the porch, and as a guest room when family comes to visit.
The majority of it was built in 1998 out of two dilapidated tool sheds. It is on a pillar foundation and is about 25 x 12 with two main rooms and a storage loft. The loft is easily large enough for a queen sized bed, but not quite tall enough to stand up in. It is the maximum size allowed for a backyard “shed” without having to apply for a building permit. It also is without running water, but it does have electricity. It is a very comfy, cozy cottage with a beautiful porch area. This picture was taken the morning after Christmas, after a blizzard.
