      Nice, but photos don’t really show enough of the layout. Next time skip the pillow and decor close up shots and please show the layout a bit more clearly so one can figure out what’s what and where. thank you.

        So right. Anyone can do pillows but a tiny house – I need to see more!

    Very nice. Very pretty. Gotta be hell driving it around, though. As a stationary house, however, it’s lovely.

    Man. To roll over in that bed and wake to see snow falling. Slide down the ladder, scratch your butt and make a pot of coffee… Just enough embers in the wood stove to get another small log going. Only one bar on the cell phone. Birds at the bird feeder. And quiet like the first dawn of the world.

      You got it, Mike! You planted the perfect visual in my head! Well, maybe without the butt scratching, but, hey…in this place, with that view…scratch away!

    I love those stairs!

      I love the stairs, too. But no hand rail? The visual space is great but what if there were a need for support if suddenly sick or dizzy?

    LOVE this. Not sure about the layout, but I love the double staircases that go up to each loft. This is beautiful!

    This is my favorite tiny home so far!! I love in Eugene and have not found anyone making tiny homes in our area….did you design and build this one of your own??? Would you be willing to sell the plans??? Give us one tips on how you did it?? Thank you!

    Beautiful! I especially like the little sitting area with two chairs that actually look comfy. Went to the link and read that lovely letter. Great job all around!

    Charming house. I especially like the kitchen sink and base cabinet. Are those units still manufactured? If so, I would like one for the kitchen in my 600 sq.ft. house.

    Nice Home, especially like the stairs/storage, any thoughts of a ceiling mounted handrail?

    Love this elegant tiny house. So nice to see one decorated so cozy and welcoming. When it’s time to leave my small home, I would love to live in this charming house! For those commenting about lack of layout shots: slow down, look carefully at the pictures and hop on over to the blog link. Thank you Ms. Boyle for sharing your inspirational home.

    Seems we always get to see the ‘eye’ selling pictures but rarely the price and other extra costs having a movable home like these…?? Why is that —as soon I see items I am interesting in that make a point of not showing prices and costs I think I am being played and leave the site thinking something must be up.
