The Tiny Project tiny house is 8×20 feet and built on a flatbed trailer. It’s approx. 160 sq.ft. with a sleeping loft (a total of about 240 sq.ft. including the loft) It’s a modern design with a low-sloping shed-style roof. The house has a small front porch and a fold-up deck. The exterior is clad in a mix beautiful cedar siding and a metal roofing material for an interesting mix of finishes.
The house features a passive solar design with 10 windows and an all-glass door for tons of natural light.
Inside you’ll find most everything a normal house has, only in a smaller, very well thought-out layout. Entering the house, you come into the “great room” with 10 foot ceilings. This area includes a small sofa, desk, fold-down table, and dog bed. This is where most of the windows are, so it’s always the most light and open feeling area in the house.
After that is a small “hallway” with storage areas to the right and left, for pantry items, outerwear, etc. At the far end of the house is a uniquely designed kitchen space with sink, fridge, range and counter space. Opposite of that is a small bathroom with a composting toilet and shower.
The house features many high-end stainless steel appliances, including a propane range (yes, a small oven too), propane on-demand water heater, counter-height refrigerator, and even a combo washer/dryer to do laundry in the comfort of home.
Sustainable woods and other materials were used throughout to create a beautiful, peaceful environment – I wanted this to be my dream home, albeit a small one. Features include sustainable strand bamboo flooring, beetle-kill pine ceiling and walls, marble counter tops, all-natural, zero VOC paints, hand-made linen curtains, and hand-planed, custom-built cabinets and shelving.
Shower, kitchen sink, and small bathroom sink, all with propane on-demand hot water; Marine-style 2-burner propane stove and oven; counter-height refrigerator/freezer; home-made composting toilet; highly efficient electric convection heater; combo washer/dryer unit; and exhaust fan for odor and moisture control.
Efficient fiberglass, double-pane, low-E coated, argon filled windows; high R-value closed-cell spray foam insulation; rain screen exterior cladding for improved moisture control; metal roof and unique cedar/metal exterior siding; and highly efficient LED and compact fluorescent lighting. A priority was the use of sustainably sourced items and efficient use of materials to minimize construction impact.
The Tiny Project has copious amounts of embedded storage including “his” and “hers” closet space in the loft (both hanging and shelf storage); 2 closet spaces downstairs (for washer/dryer, water heater, plus pantry and coats/shoes); the sofa cushion lifts up to reveal storage underneath (for bulky items, seasonal); built-in shelving throughout (for books, home office-supplies, etc), and an attached outdoor storage shed (for tools, building supplies, etc).
