Tiny houses are becoming more common as people replace their bigger homes for smaller lives. Julia and Robert of TinyLivingLivingLarge, are examples of two people who have done it. They swapped their 5,000+ square foot home for a 300-square-foot tiny house they designed and built themselves after taking a course on tiny house building. Let’s see what they did.
In Tiny House Giant Journey’s YouTube Channel, this couple say that they design their small home to entertain. And it is completely an energy-efficient house with the use of solar panels.
Inside their tiny house, there is a full-sized kitchen, a stainless steel countertops, a tile backsplash with flexible grout, a roasting and pull-out coffee stand, and a wood-fired stove.
At one end of the kitchen is the bathroom, which includes a washer and dryer located under a countertop that doubles as a vanity. Opposite the vanity is a walk-in shower covered with Mother of Pearl tiles and a separate space for the toilet.
The staircase with LED lighting is located between the kitchen and bathroom. It leads to the attic bedroom, where there is a small cupboard and storage on the floor.
Office space is essential for this tiny house. Julia and Robert include a stand-up workstation with a movable screen that swivels and raises to function as a TV in the living room.
In the family room there is a U-shaped sofa and adjustable table that can accommodate 8 people. When guests stay at this tiny house, the table can be lowered and transform from the sofa into a queen bed. A wooden and steel staircase in the living area leads to the roof deck.
