The Goose Rocks small cottage is a charming tiny house with a great location. The 960 square foot small cottage home overlooks the Goose Rocks Beach, which is located in Kennebunkport, Maine. This small cottage fits in perfectly with its oceanside location. With its grey shingled exterior, blue door and blue window boxes, it looks like part of the oceanside landscape with its wild rose bushes, green grass, blue sky and ocean. Inside is just as charming with its white walls, wood beams, wood floors and lots of windows to let in the scenic ocean views. Upstairs in this small cottage are two separate sleeping areas both containing twin beds, so this tiny cottage design shows that you don’t need a lot of space to accommodate guests and live comfortably.
The small cottage makes small house living seem like a breeze with a space that looks much larger than its small size. This small cottage home is made even better by its scenic location. When you are located in a natural location, you are more apt to spend time outdoors, so it is an extension of your living space, which this small cottage home accomplishes. The front outdoor patio that faces the ocean is a spot where you would also spend a lot of time on sunny days and starry nights. Cedar shake shingles and clapboard siding are popular features of Cape Cod style home designs. These forms of siding were originally intended to protect the homes against the extreme climate of the New England winters. The cedar shingles are a low maintenance alternative to siding, that often gets better with age. The original Cape Cod styled home designs were also built with a wood frame. Wood is still a fairly inexpensive building material, and you will still find many new Cape Cod home designs with wood frame construction.
