Picture Perfect 350sf Contemporary Provincetown Cottage

If this charming Cape Cod cottage looks a little slicker than most owner-designed tiny houses, that may be because one of the owners is Christopher Budd, a managing principal with STUDIOS Architecture in Washington, DC. Christopher usually works on a somewhat larger scale – his previous design projects include 4.5 million square feet of space for the Pentagon – but his talents scaled down beautifully for this 350-square-foot Provincetown vacation house he purchased with his partner, Tom Lavash.

h/t Tiny House Talk

The house is technically 500 square feet now: the pair glassed in the existing screen porch with storm windows and a skylight and added insulation to make it into a pleasantly sunny sitting room. But that’s extra; all the necessities are inside the main house. They include a living area with a custom 76-inch couch by Daniel Donnelly; a spacious modern kitchen with a single-drawer dishwasher and full-size refrigerator (as well as a washing machine and dryer – hey, that’s where they fit best); a small but gleaming white bathroom; and a sleeping loft at the top of the spiral staircase. The remodeling job was handled very professionally by Cape Associates, Inc.
