The Lucky Penny
Please send me a note telling me about the floor in this home. It is gorgeous!!
It doesn’t matter if I like, or if anyone else likes it. It only matters if the owners like it. It’s very well made, very pretty. I do worry about it being too heavy to move around a lot, but hey…it’s not my house. I like it. If it were stationary and had some more storage for supplies and food, I’d take two of them. Nice job.
While (to me) it’s not steam punk. There is the factor that the only persons opinion that matters in this story is the person who owns it. If you don’t like it then do what your momma taught you… Say nothing if you can’t say something nice. So many people just don’t care and get righteously rude for no good cause. What they are popping off about has nothing to do with them and yet heaven forbid if they can’t give their non necessary point of view.
Beautifully done. Love the details and that floor is absolutely gorgeous.
I like it and love the modern rustic look that is put into it, but show how unique and personal it is
It’s like there was no one at the helm when designing was being done. It’s not steam punk and it’s not modern. It needs help but it would be a great fixer upper.
How funny you said this. I was just about to comment on how coherent the thought process was in the design of this tiny house. Steam punk is an abstraction of how we now imagine the early industrial-age must have looked. Gas-lit, cog-driven, mechanical — as such the sheer practicality of it represents a relief from our present data-driven digital age. One need only make a few references – the pipes, the grills, the fans, the exposed skeleton of the mechanics, to evoke an atmosphere and I think that’s been accomplished with an amount of charm here.
But to each his or her own. I much enjoyed this imaginative rendition and think I could live there a long time.
Agree, and well-put. Also: what a rockin’ place for an 7-yr-old boy to call home for a while! Imaginatively conceived and precisely executed. Plumbing should be nominated for a MacArthur Foundation award.
If I’m not mistaken this tiny house was designed, built and featured on FYI’s Tiny House Nation. Fixer-upper? I don’t think so Joe!
…AND now I read that at the bottom of the post. Facepalm
What a GREAT mom!
As to the design, Steampunk is is a mechanical/high-tech take on Victorian, emphasis on Victorian. So…this leans deeply into industrial, a different thing altogether, but it is still an extremely awesome place for a 7 year old or anyone young at heart! What are the floors? They look a bit like either reclaimed wood or luminous agate tiles!
“It’s not steam punk and it’s not modern…”
Snobby, dismissive posts like yours are annoying. HOW is it NOT steampunk? whats wrong with the details? Are you saying none of the decor is steampunk? What would you have fixed? How about linking some examples? All I see is a put down and nothing to back it up.
I think its gorgeous. I dont pretend to be an expert on steampunk but that bathroom plumbing especially says “steampunk” to me.
Maybe the kitchen cabinets and the floor dont scream “steampunk” but that wood is soooo beautiful frankly I dont care.
Excellent work. Really captured the steam punk feel and yet still contemporary enough for anyone to live in comfortably.
I’m loving the industrial look of this one, especially the counter tops. Not too over the top steampunk, but just enough edge to it. Very nice.
Wow. That’s a brilliant combination of steampunk meets the 21st century. I find it full of art, and yet very practical at the same time. Hard to do with so little space.
I’d have loved to get a better look at the table lamp by the couch and more info on the plumbing, but for a teaser, this was awesome.
Art on Wheels! Everything was so well thought out. Love the exposed plumbing, the gears, and pulleys – really all of the steampunk nuances! Only thing I would change, (strictly personal preferences), is the countertop(looks like it adds a lot of weight) and I would add french doors. Bravo, beautifully done!
I like it… I would choose different counter tops and shower if this were a moving home, rather than stationary.
What wood was the floor made of? I’d love to find out what kind and where to get it for my own little house if possible. Please let me know!
“The kitchen, front door and stair treads were all made from scratch, by my brother-in-law Greg Dewey. They were constructed from wormy maple and the front door weighed in excess of 250lbs!”
Very well done. So original. I’ve been looking for years and this may be the coolest I’ve seen.
Way to go!
meant to say, i wouldn’t change a thing!
I have to agree with ELLE in that it is more industrial than steampunk, but I *LOVE* anything punk/steampunk/goth(ic)/industrial/bohemian/fetish so this ticks a lot of boxes for me. And I love the purple on the bathroom wall. Great job and a gorgeous home. Well done.

Any way i could get the details on how you built the shower mechanisms? We are building a rustic home and using a trough as a shower and this setmup would be great!
So love the bathroom plumbing here. I’m taking elements for my own remodel. Thanks for the inspiration! Love your home.
