Toronto’s Itty Bitty Tiny House with a Big Price

Tiny House for SaleA client sent me information and photos of the smallest house in Toronto, Canada this week. She knew I have a thing for tiny houses, and she said this one should be right up my alley. The house, purchased for $139,000 last year (according to a report from Reuters), has recently been revamped and is now back on the market for $179,900.

It boasts (or should I say “whispers”?) 300 square feet of living space with a tiny back patio. If small living is your thing, this might be your next house!

The listing includes this information:

* Completely re-done top-to-bottom, front-to-back!
* Tumbled stone entrance walk
* Renovated Bath
* Renovated Kitchen with newer stove, new cabinets and new stacked washer/dryer
* Bedroom with Murphy Bed + ‘Built-Ins’ … (doubles as a den)!
* Walk-out to fenced patio
* 100 Amp service
* 2 Satellite Dishes and Receiver
* Window Air Conditioner Available

Kitchen - including washer and dryer units

The minuscule kitchen manages to cover all the basics (although I’m still wondering where the refrigerator is stashed) work in a stacked washer/dryer unit!

Small Bedroom with Murphy Bed

The bedroom includes a Murphy bed, which must be put away to walk to the back door.

Don’t you just love the sight of a beautifully polished tiny space? I know I do. Only one question remains… where’s the teeny little bathroom?

  1. Tumbleweed was the first company I found online with the prebuilts. I’ve been a fan ever since.

    Someday, once my larger tiny home is built, I may create my own teeny-tiny one just for fun!

  5. Some tiny homes in and around Toronto are just beautiful. I love the beaches area which is not only a great location but also it has many tiny homes that have gone through many renovations in the past few years.

  6. I love this house! My granddaughter, who is a civil engineer in Dallas, is also
    into tiny houses. I sent her the website so she can add the pictures and layout
    to her file. I wonder if the plans are available for a reasonable price.

  7. I’m not sure where you would look for plans for this house, but they would be cool to have! I’m building my own tiny house now (not quite THIS tiny, but still under 800 square feet) and it’s a glorious project! I’ll be blogging about it as soon as the floors are finished downstairs and the doors are hung and the trim is up. So, come back and visit in a month or two ;)

  8. Awhh i love that house great size for my play dolls i think
    in going to tell my parents to but it in my back yard

  9. would love to look at your tiny house. how soon could one visit it online.we have space enough for a teeny-weeny beautiful house and would love to share notes .

  10. It’s going to be a little while before my own tiny house is complete (should be within a month or so) and I’m sure I’ll be sharing photos online once that’s done. Thanks so much for the request and I’d love to see links to your house in the meantime!

  13. Only problem with this and many other tiny houses are windows.
    There is very little natural light coming in it seems because only one or two tiny windows. more windows or bigger windows would give feeling of more space.

  14. Many designers do underestimate the importance of natural light. I think the reason is because wall space (due to a need for storage space) is at such a premium. In my own tiny house, I overcame much of that on the first floor by selecting a glass double door and adding a double window on the facing wall. Having a large expanse of glass works better, IMHO, than having multiple small windows. I also opted for at least one window in each room-no matter how small, and used a tall thin one in the bathroom to let in the most light in the least space.

    Although I didn’t use them, there are skylight devices that “tunnel” natural light from the roof into any room (even basements) using mirror reflections – and these take up NO wall space. Personally, I think it’s better to reserve a single expanse of wall (unbroken) for storage and use the larger windows than to stick little “dinky” windows in every possible wall… But that’s me ;)

    It’s all a matter of design and thought – before the building actually starts.

  15. Since I’m a huge fan of tiny houses myself I even started my own tiny house related website. It’s still a work in progress but it’s my first site so please be gentle :)

  17. *snicker* No doubt. I like tiny spaces, but I prefer my tiny interior spaces to be accompanied by LARGE outdoor spaces and dang near UNLIMITED personal freedom. But… that’s just me. :D
