Micro Guest Cottage with a Green Roof

Continuing the theme of tiny structures this week, I think this office cottage on Bainbridge Island is just awesome.  The compact, 200-square foot space was designed by Russ Hamlet and built by Geoffrey Hobert for the Rolling Bay Land Co. and featured on the recent green home tours presented by the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild.

The cottage was finished in 2009 and includes a murphy bed and composting toilet to accommodate guests, though the daily use is as an office for the Rolling Bay Land Co.

Finish materials include FSC-certified fir plywood, salvaged wood flooring, LED lights, denim insulation, corrugated metal siding, a green roof, rain barrels for rainwater collection, and a Stelpro convection wall heater.
