This Couple Built A 450-Sq-Ft Storybook Cottage. When I Saw The Inside, I Squealed!

Ron and Sue of Millersburg, OH live in one of the cutest houses I have ever seen — and they built it all by hand!

Self-described as “old, idealistic dreamers, fresh out of youth,” this quirky couple hopes to change the world with their colorful little cottage. And judging by their adorable pictures, I think they’re well on their way.

In their 29 years of marriage, the biggest house Ron and Sue called “home” measured 900 square feet — and they hope to share their decades of “small living experiences” to help families reconsider their idea of standard living.

They’re certainly not alone in this endeavor; the Tiny House Movement is gaining speed all around the world with each little house more unique and captivating than the last.

If you love bright colors, retro kitsch, and cozy charm, this “Shiny Tiny Mansion” is the little house for you. This tiny house, nestled at the top of a grassy hill, is big in creativity and huge in heart.

Check out the photos!

Ron and Sue began to build their tiny home in 2001, all by hand. Six years later, their charming, money-saving, earth-friendly home was complete!



  1. Size and layout of home is awesome. I do not like all the clutter on the walls….nor the ceiling color in the Bedroom……Would want it more “clean” looking. However, would LOVE to have one that is like this!! Awesome job.

  2. It is a good ides but I need a one floor plan. Need to know if there was room for a washer and dryer. Also the shower space seemed long.

  3. I, too, need everything on one floor. The one thing I dislike is the tiny stove being right up against a wall. Not enough room for my big pots and seems like a fire hazard to me. I love the cats and quilts.

  4. Very sweet, but not for me. BTW—No railing around porch and high off the ground—I’d be the first one to fall off! LOL!
