Built initially as a second house and in-law studio, this Tiny House is truly one of a kind.

It sits in the backyard of the main home, which is occupied by a family of 5 and a cat. It is unattached from the main house but the backyard is a shared space. However, the Tiny House has a private fenced-in backyard.

If you don't like people or animals, this is NOT the space for you.

The space
The Tiny House Studio is an unattached house in the backyard of the main home.

The space is equipped with:

1. Kitchen
2. Bathroom (bathtub)
3. Laundryroom
4. Bedroom studio space
5. Loft storage area (not a lounge area)
6. Hardwood flooring (kitchen and bedroom)
7. Radiant flooring (bathroom and laundryroom)
8. AC/Heat - 2 Ductless Heat Pumps
9. Water Heater (please bear in mind the water gets hot but not as hot as a traditional water heater)

We also do not recommend this space for young children due to safety concerns with the sliding library ladder. However, if you are a parent/guardian of small children, we WILL remove the ladder during your stay. Sorry, no exceptions.

Please keep in mind, we have children and a shy cat and we occupy the backyard, sometimes with small gathering and cookouts from time-to-time. You are welcome to join us if you're able and feel comfortable.

Guest access
We welcome you to our Tiny House Studio with basic essentials upon your arrival. This includes:

1. Toilet paper
2. Paper towel

Other things to note
Although theTiny House Studio is built larger than a traditional tiny house, it is truly meant for a single person or a couple. We love to interact with our guests but we will engage with you on the level of your preference.

Regardless, please keep in mind that only friendly, non-confrontational visitors are welcome here. If you don't like children, animals (we have a cat that roams the backyard), or friendly interacting, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU.

We want this to be a great experience for everyone. Thanks for your understanding.

For those visiting on work assignments; We are just a 5 minute drive (7 minutes bus ride) to Food and Drug Administration (FDA), 8 minute drive to the National Archives (15 minutes bus ride) and 20 minutes drive to downtown Washington, DC (35 minutes on bus/metro).

Public transport is only a few steps away (the bus stop is in front of our home) for travel to DC, MD and VA.
