Minim House

A 210 square feet tiny house location in Washington, DC in Boneyard Studios. Photos by Paul Burk and built by Minim Tiny Homes.


  • Absolutely gorgeous!!! This tiny home is nicer than most apartments I’ve ever lived in…and maybe some of the houses too! My husband and I are consciously down-sizing our lives, having just gone from a 3 bedroom townhouse with a basement to a 1 bedroom apartment. Our next step is to hopefully find our “perfect piece of land” in Victoria, BC so we can buy a few acres and then build our dream “small home”.

    The design of this house is so simple and elegant. I love how you’ve incorporated things like the hiding bed and the storage under the bench seats. Everything has a place, and there’s lots of room for personal objects and temporary decor for holidays.

    Thank you for sharing your home with us…it’s stunning, and I wanted you to know that.

    It seems so roomy! I love it!

  • Barbara says:

    This is BY FAR one of the best floor plans and best use of such a small space. I LOVE IT!!!! It is so open and looks so inviting. It is hard to believe that is only 210 sq. ft!! GREAT JOB! WHAT AN INSPIRATION!!

  • Sonia says:

    Beautiful plan! The roll-out bed and the coffee-cum-dining table are so clever. Is that stainless steel for the kitchen cabinets and bathroom wall panels? And is the exterior made of fibreboard or natural wood?

  • What a great tiny home. This is one of the very best I have seen. Very modern and much thought put into this construction. Thank you for sharing it with the readers.

  • How much did it cost to build this? Where can I get one?

  • More information on this house is available at, including plans.

  • Joan Thomas says:

    What are the dimensions? Could I do this with a 10×13 Ft. space?

  • Terri says:

  • Kay Mack says:

    Exquisite! This is exactly what I have dreamed of having when I’m ready to make a big change in lifestyle. It’s heartening to know such tiny homes exist. I’m going to visit the homepage for the practical details, such as cost…
    Great job!!!

  • Gorgeous! Every bit of space used so beautifully.

  • Ann King says:

    Well done! So many people use too much of the space on the kitchen. I love that it doesn’t try to mimic living big in a small space and some good decisions have been made about what to let go of and what to keep. I’m dancing with my resistance to not having a separate shower when I imagine myself in the space AND at the same time I think I could get past that.


  • love the elegance of this tiny home…..though I believe many people are unaware that this design has an eleven foot
    wide foot print….not the more commonly seen eight foot six inch that we are use to in most of the tiny homes . cheers

GO live your DREAMS and inspire others to live simply and save TONS of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    How much does it cost. Is there any more details????

  • Michael says:

    I’m looking to build my own and this is the best tiny house (or micro home) I’ve seen so far. I absolutely love it. I’d love to just take the plans and recreate it but, I want the one I build to be a little more mine. I will be taking a few of your ideas such as the moveable table (which is brilliant). Honestly, job well done! Cheers.

  • Richard says:

    “Minim House” is a stunning piece of work.

  • Marilyn Lane says:

    Where is this community of eclectic tiny homes? The hardest part of tiny home building is finding a place to park. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

  • Troy D. says:

    Just wanted to say that this was my inspiration for building my current 12 x 28 tiny house. I looked at many designs, but none of them had quite the “wow” factor of this open floor plan, and I was immediately drawn to the openness, and spacious feel. Simplicity at its best! Well done.
