Jeff and Linda Kleinman got a taste of tiny house living two summers ago, during a stay at The Cottages at Cabot Cove in Kennebunkport. They spent the weekend biking around town and kayaking on the Kennebunk River by way of the tidal cove that backdrops the 16-cottage seasonal resort — activities, Jeff says, their bantam abode helped facilitate. “When you have fewer things around you, you focus more on being outside.” After their visit, they purchased one of the resort’s 285-square-foot cottages (seven buildings are privately owned) and undertook a space-maximizing renovation with Portland interior designer Tyler Karu. “We fit what we can,” Linda says. And what they can’t? “We keep it in the car.”
