666 square feet in Brooklyn, NY- apparently even the devil digs tiny houses...

666 square feet- and real estate wise, it probably would still cost a fortune! A very cool little house though...

Poking around Windsor Terrace the other day, we spied this cabin-like building that sprouted between an aluminum siding-clad single-family house, and an aluminum siding-clad apartment house. Much has been written about the growing tiny house movement in America, but while New Yorkers are famous for making due in small spaces, we don't often see them as freestanding homes. This one is 666-square-feet, on a 2,430-square-foot lot, and may we say it is adorable?

write-up from

City dwellers have been living in small apartments and quarters for ages, but its rare that you see so small a single family dwelling so close to a major metropolitan area like Manhattan, NYC- as its usually all multi-unit apartment buildings and condos that dominate the landscape. Its great to see the occasional ultra tiny house/home still holding out in an area where land is at such a premium.

  1. yes, it might be some kind of a "place holder" of sorts until he-who-can-not-be-named decides what kind of monument to evil to build..

  2. Derek,
    I was wondering if you could talk with me a little bit over email. I am 2nd grade teacher and I want to host a creation/building day for an afternoon at my school. I have some dads that are going to help out and they can prepare some of the stuff before hand. I was wondering if you could help me hone down and focus on three cool project that we could donate to our schools playground area. Drop me a line if you could at
    Thanks for your time,

  3. Here's another nice little place in Toronto. I got an email awhile back saying it was in Brooklyn and your post reminded me of it. I did some research and it turns out that was a myth and it is actually in Toronto. Pretty cool nonetheless.
