    nice job!
    A clever use of space and distribution of light. I love the flow of exterior space into the lower floor.
    Some great ideas for tiny house dwellers such as the use of transparent flooring to allow light through and to create that feeling of openess.

    Im looking at building a tiny dwelling and Im getting the idea that height and light are the key factors to creating the illusion of spaciousness not floor size.

    Is this for sale?

    Looks nice, but roll out of bed and it looks like that could be disastrous.

      No, rolling out the bed wont be a problem, that is a glass floor and unless you are a kid, your legs will bump into the railing before you can roll out.

    I wondered if a spiral staircase would have been better, but then I realized it would not have really flowed as well with the exterior scene and interior mood. This is perfectly done!

    94 feet??? 90% amazing design. Only turnoff is open stairs over the food prep table….thats just nasty! Not a lot of storage, but it is a guest room. The brick is sooooo pretty.

    Looks wonderful, however, I know may laundry rooms were built with only a single skin of bricks, so no cavity wall insulation. Heating costs would be horrendous here in the UK. I don’t imagine they are any better in sanfrancisco.

    Great design, beautiful execution. I do wonder about the ease/safety of descending the stairs. Seems to require facing in, but I’m not seeing much in the way of hand holds to get into position and get you down the first few steps before hands can grab treads or stringers. Maybe it is easier in person than it appears in photos.

    It’s lovely – and at 96 sq ft. an amazing use of space. The brick, glass and ironwork – really nice.

    This is perhaps one of the smartest conversions of a tiny space that I have ever seen. Just amazing folks!

    Why do I get the feeling I should keep my Winter coat on all of the time. It just looks so cold and homeless.
