An award-winning tiny house built mostly from salvaged, recycled and found materials. Set in a lush and spacious backyard, close to public transportation, and walking distance to a ton of stores, cafes, bars, and restaurants, this is a cozy urban oasis and perfect base camp for Bay Area adventures.

The space

At only 200 square feet, this miniature home still offers a full kitchen, full-size lofted bed, sofa, desk, dining table, a half bath with attached private hot outdoor shower, and a home theater with 50-inch screen and projector. WiFi is very fast at 250Mbps.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a four-burner gas stove and oven, toaster oven, blender, and two restaurant-style under-counter fridges. Two large skylights in the kitchen and bathroom offer views of the green roof above, with wildflowers blooming in the springtime.

Climbing up a rolling library ladder to the lofted bed, you'll fall asleep in a canopy of bamboo just outside the window. The sofa also folds out into an extra bed (for extra guests or those afraid of heights!).

The tiny house's outdoor shower offers complete privacy thanks to a vertical living wall of succulents hanging from a 19th century barn door track. Abutilon and tree Dahlia flowers hang down from overhead as you bathe, often visited by our resident hummingbirds.

The new salvaged redwood deck (not seen in some of the older photos) is a great place to enjoy a morning coffee or evening drink.

This eco-friendly cottage has efficient in-floor radiant heating and is made of about 80% re-used and reclaimed materials.

Guest access

The cottage, shower and deck are all yours, and you can make yourself at home in the shared backyard with brick patio dining area. Help yourself to tomatoes, kale, strawberries, herbs, or anything else you find growing in the yard!

Interaction with guests

I live in the main house and work from home, so I'm often just across the yard to help you with any needs you may have during your stay.

Other things to note

As noted above, the bed is up in a loft and requires climbing a ladder to get into bed. For those with a fear of heights, this may not be an ideal setup, but for the adventurous out there, it's a lot of fun!

Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! Everything you need. Well designed layout. Secluded. Comfortable loft bed. Functional, well appointed kitchen, Fantastic, lush, outdoor shower. Beautiful, serene and relaxing outdoor space. Excellent WIFI, a projection TV, plus radiant floor heat. Also, your host Kaleem, is gracious, accommodating and private. Location is easy walking distance to some excellent cafe's, restaurants and bars. BART/Uber to SF, Berkeley or wherever you may need to adventure is very reasonable. If available, I will stay here for ALL future visits to the Bay Area without a second thought. In fact, next time, I may not leave.

The house is great! Everything in the description is spot on. There are numerous dining areas to walk to in the Berkeley/Emeryville, yet just a 20 minute ride to San Francisco. Kaleem is a great host and if we ever go back to the San Fran area we’ll definitely make sure to check the availability of the home.
