There were lots of challenges associated with this build and I had to learn a lot of new skills in the process. Overall I am extremely happy with the final result.
I’ve now been living in the tiny house for the past month and I absolutely love it! Which is good, because I put 4 years of nights, weekends, and vacation days into this build!
One of the things I am most proud of, is the usability of this home. There was a lot of thought and planning that went into the design and layout of this build. I scoured Pinterest, watched HGTV, YouTube, and even toured other tiny homes for ideas and inspiration.
There are several features about this house that I wanted to highlight;
While it is only 20ft in length and 8ft wide, the space inside doesn’t feel that small. The tall ceiling, white interior paint, and skylight help the space feel well lit and spacious.
There is a full size kitchen because I love to cook and a decent sized fridge to handle my meal prep containers.
The bathroom has a modern shower with a tankless water heater. It also has a single unit washer/dryer combo for laundry. The bathroom is equipped with a composting toilet, however it is also plumbed for a flush toilet, should I decide that pooping in a bucket is no longer desirable.
The house contains a custom made epoxy table/standing desk.
There are two lofts. The primary sleeping loft allows for a queen-sized mattress, and doesn’t require a ladder to get into bed. In fact, one can stand next to the bed without hitting their head due to the small walkway design. The secondary loft is used primarily for storage, but can sleep a guest as well.
There is a very comfortable reading/movie watching area at the front of the house with a large projector screen. The projector screen also functions as a dry erase board for the YouTube tutorials I intend to film from inside the house.
The inside temperature is controlled by a mini-split which provides both heat and cold air for the building.
All appliances are electric so that the entire house can eventually be run by a solar panel array.
