  • One of these extremely tiny house “cottages” that (allegedly) cost $35,000. [craigslist]
  • If you’re in the mood to power-wash, this lovely Chevy Chase home looks like it’s been stamped all over by a horde of muddy kids. [Zillow]
  • $250,000 for a 3,500-square-foot building lot in Ward 7. (Craigslist, it turns out, is not so concerned with specificity.) [craigslist]
  • This $1.4 million Upshur Street NW home that was “built in a variety of different idioms.” [Zillow]
