I agree with dickiej; I wonder if it would be possible to install a pneumatic tube between the Yum Yum Shop kitchen and the cottage kitchen!

My curiosity satisfied! I regularly see the guy grilling while I'm having a cocktail on the Garwoods deck. It's a lovely spot and I'm not surprised they've done such a beautiful job on the inside

The difficulty only begins when a garage door cannot be installed.

It's very nice for what it is, top flight job, but gosh it is small for a year round residence.

Not a "tiny home" but close.

Still, a very nice restoration at a wonderful location.

Well done.

Beauty in the eyes of the beholder. I come to the lake for peace and quiet not downtown Wolfeboro. I get it though. Some people like that lifestyle. I can drive in and not drive the car for 2 weeks. The dock, the loons, the Mountain View’s, sunrise/sunset catch a fish or two.. pure heaven. Seeing and talking to the “natives” that have lived here their whole lives... priceless. Some of the nicest folks I’ve ever met.

My seasonal place is 400 sq ft. The primary residence is 1100 sq ft. I can do the latter, but the former is too small even for seasonal. I lived in the seasonal for 5 months last year. Just not for me. That’s why, fingers crossed, I’ll be closing on the seasonal in 3 days.

You know, every time I've seen this thread I haven't been able to stop thinking about something.

The linked article spends a lot of time on the size of the cottage at 800 ft², and I can't help wondering what the overall average living space is for people around the world. Like, once mobile homes, apartments, condos, 3rd-world and overdeveloped countries, etc. are accounted for, I gotta think the average is similar or lower? I mean, it's not big by any means, but I have to think that most of the world would be incredibly happy with the size (never mind the yard, location, etc.)?

In 1989 I was at a week long training class for work.

Some of my class mates were from Japan.

During breaks our cultural exchange included a discussion on housing.

They were amazed that my wife and I, without kids, lived in a 2,000 square foot house.

In the group of four from Japan, three had three generations and one had two generations living under the same roof.

That roof varied between 600 and 800 square feet!

Oh, and they really wanted to hear about American bass fishing.

Quick access to Dive Winnipesaukee! Couple of good shots of the Lady-Go-Diva out the windows...

Standing reservation at Garwood's?

This just popped up in my Facebook feed—I'm confident these people would treasure the tiny Yum Yum Shop home.

Back in the 70's I had some bell bottomed pants that looked just like that building.

Thanks for the flashback!

Beautiful job but would be way too small for me. As it is hubby and I live in an 1100 square foot house and even that is a bit small for us.

A pet peeve of mine is adding Styrofoam 4x8 beams to the newly-opened ceiling. (Scroll through the pictures). Just leave it open, or use proper-sized timbers.
