hey, i'm mark and today. i'm going to give you a tour of my guest cottage it's under 800 square feet, but it looks really huge on the inside. it would be a great home [for] somebody who single or thinking of trying to live tiny this is not so tiny living. well let me give you a tour of it, and i'll show you the dimensions and everything well, i went with metal siding for low maintenance it measures 18 foot wide the outside dimensions by 36 foot and the best i remember it's 21 feet tall and i went with a thicker gauge metal siding.

metal has been pretty much no maintenance. i spray it with a little bleach and soapy water right before rains and which is today and my wife designed it we built it about 15 years ago it cost about 40,000 for me to build it. i did it all myself other than [the] sheetrock and the insulation, i went with an expanding foam let me get out of the rain it's got 18 foot ceilings

i built a trust that's kind of hidden up in that little attic space up there between the 18-foot ceiling in the 21 foot peak expands the 36 foot length of the building by building a trust it will never sag over the years you can see it's got a large kitchen. it feels huge in here [i] built a lot of the furniture in here coffee table with a concrete top built a year or two ago it started out to be smaller than this but my wife kept tweaking with my design and i was just going to have a ladder going up to a loft and kind of small up there, but

we tried to make [it] where we have to rent it out one day we could this room here is a little over 17 foot on the inside [and] 24 foot long this kitchen and living area take y'all into the bathroom area this rooms about eight foot. [i] think its nine foot wide and twelve foot deep it has the shower there staircase that goes up and [it's] got a make up area as well as well as a double as well as a sink double mirrors

the trick was to figure out how to get the stairs to go up to the loft [and] i'll show y'all how we did that under the staircase there's enough room for the washer and dryer and the hot water heater. it's about three foot the lower three foot deep and it worked out perfect for the utility room stairs are about three foot [wide] and i had to do that one two three steps of landing and then i turn another landing before you could go all the way up into the loft there is a low spot here if you're six foot, you might get your head, but other than that you you want this closets about five foot wide and

think it's about eight to nine feet long - the wall thicknesses, but it's got plenty of and it's storage. i wish my camera would zoom out a little bit and not be so close with this it's the only camera i have take you upstairs and i'll have a mini-split heat pump air conditioner to heat and cool and this is the bedroom. it's 16 feet long. it's got [nine-foot] [ceilings] the knee wall there is about the lower [5] foot

there's a attic storage space behind the end table, and there's also a another attic space here for storage i'll give you a close up, and you can see the insulation. have three inches of expanding foam that we use for insulation this place like an icebox well insulated. it doesn't take much to heat and cool it and we do have ceiling fans, and you can see the view from up here how big it looks by not having a wall here? it makes one room look bigger

if we would have put a wall here everything would [look] small well my [daughter's] going to be moving in here in a couple of days her husband is in the military and going to be gone on a secret something that i don't we don't know about for four months and she decided to move back home till he gets back well, i appreciate y'all watching we'll see you on our next video
