Isn't that a charming cottage? Its square footage is larger than a lot of the entries in AT's Smallest Coolest contest every year, but it isn't a house...or rather it is a house. A play house. According to a recent article on Inside Bay Area, these playhouses are very popular with people who want to give their children the opportunity to play in a controlled environment rather than risk sending them to a local park, and a custom playhouse by La Petit Maison seems to them to be the logical choice.

While we love a little Victorian Gingerbread, the interiors are leaving us cold.
