Curbed's Micro Week 2015 House of the Day run is dropping in square footage each day, until we've reached a truly tiny home that still embodies everything that makes a dwelling HOD-worthy. (Sorry, but tiny houses on flatbed trailers need not apply.) As always, we love tips.
Location: Sturdivant Island, Maine
It is here, it is tiny, and it is dreamy. The smallest House of the Day of Micro Week 2015 measures all of 688 square feet. Is it cheating, because there are a handful of other outbuildings—including a tower that's been converted into a sleeping loft, a billiards shack, and a teepee with a hardwood base—on this three-acre swatch of Maine's Sturdivant Island? Quite possibly! But just look at how cute it is!
The total count is is six bedrooms, according to the Sotheby's listing, which has this vacation compound priced at $2.25M. Accommodations in the updated main cabin also include a small loft overlooking the communal area, which has an original stone fireplace, a modern kitchen, and an antique wood-burning stove. But the main draw for seafaring New England broods is likely the 1,100 feet of waterfront and the deep-water dock.
