Jessica Holmes House
Jessica Holmes house is tiny and her co-workers call it Thumbelina’s Cottage. During an interview, she revealed that the house got its name because it was tiny.
‘It got the name Thumbelina’s cottage because it’s tiny! But I love my little place and the neighborhood especially. What started as a place that was perfect for just me has turned into a home for a family of three…and a dog! There is a little nook that was an office space that has now been transformed into the baby’s room. Only a crib and dresser fit but let’s be honest what more does the little guy need right now? I am doing my best to stay very organized…the container store is my friend!’
