    Superb! Perfect simplicity.

      I’d add a small upstairs bedroom with a small balcony and make a larger bath with tub and expand the kitchen and luving

        What you want then, is a single-wide mobile home. Have at it.

        Dude what you want is another house.

    One of the most beautifully simple understaded builds I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing. Graham, you have a certain gift that comes along rarely, a seemingly effortless ability to define a mood and a negative space. Exceedlingly well done!

    Would you consider selling the plans for that build?

      excuse me, UNDERSTATED builds.

      I just love it. Finish up very nice inside. I would live to have something like it. Very sharp.

  • Reply Anna February 4, 2015 at 2:18 pm

    Very snappy-looking and I bet it’s lightweight, too. Bright and airy interior. Well done!

    I’m especially impressed that he fit a bathroom and a ground-floor bed in just 98 square feet! Although–come to think of it–this looks better suited as a guest house than a permanent residence, since I can’t see much storage space for clothes, gear, food, etc. Amazing how omitting storage can really open up a space… haha.

      You could put hideaway storage space in the floor or ceiling for clothes and other things. This layout is the best I’ve seen for the space.

    Lovely, if a bit spare. I see this as being great for traveling, or for an oil field worker . I know I would junk it up with all sorts of tschotchkes if I tried to live in it full-time, but a more disciplined person could have quite a sweet life in it I think!

    What size trail are you using?

  • Reply marcia serena February 4, 2015 at 8:59 pm

    i would do with more built in cabinets, shelves on the empty wall where the picture is-at the ft of the bed , plastic rollabouts…i would also eliminate the table and instead put smaller width cabinets with fold out tray to use for a table/laptop, on the bed side, so that you can eat there /laptop while in a folding chair or in bed….also move the door 1 ft over towards the middle and eliminate the small window and put a floor to ceiling narrow closet in that space, and all along the top, above the windows narrow width storage cabinets

    I think this is PERFECT. Ground floor bed, lots of light, light furnishings dotted with wood trim. Smart design throughout. Wouldn’t cost a FORTUNE to build. Thanks for sharing!

    I think this is one of the neatest, cleverest little houses I’ve ever seen.

  • Reply Mike February 5, 2015 at 9:48 am

    What restraint! No clutter. Simple and consistent design details. THIS is the essence of a well done Tiny House.

  • Reply alice h February 5, 2015 at 11:42 am

    Cute, but this layout makes for some essentially useless space between the door and bathroom. If the door had been closer to the wheels and the bathroom across one end instead it would leave more space in the middle. I suppose there may not have been quite enough space to do that. If there were you could have the shower on the left, bathroom door in the centre and toilet to the right, with the kitchen counter leaving a bit more space beside the bed. I really like the look of the white interior with wood trim. Could use a bit more cupboard space in the kitchen though. And desperately in need of window coverings.

    • Reply Mike Wofsey February 5, 2015 at 12:28 pm

      The changes you suggest would definitely wring more living space out of the 7 x 14 platform, but at the cost of reducing the open space end-to-end that makes the inside so visually calming. Assuming your under-bed, and under-counter storage is sufficient, the desgin he made with this one is probably the most well-thought 7 x 14 that I’ve ever seen, and he the design he uses doesn’t take away from that gorgeous 1:2 ratio for the living space like an end-end installation would.

      I agree that this might be not well suited for a permanent home … but for a summer home or add a marine heater for a few winter months, it seems to be more livable to me than homes twice the size.

    Bright and beautiful tiny house! Very well done.

  • Reply Jason February 7, 2015 at 2:13 am

    I really couldn’t see living in here, but I’d love to remove the bed and use it as an office or studio space. Plenty of light coming in those windows to get work done by.

  • Reply Diane Gavidia February 8, 2015 at 6:39 pm

    The use of white beadboard makes all the difference in creating a feeling of space and airy lightness in this tiny house. So many of the tiny houses I have seen feel oppressively small because of all the wood inside. This plan also incorporated large windows, which also helps make it feel bigger and brighter. A great design!

    I may soon come into possession of a 14′ trailer, and this is just what I’ve been looking for: a single-story. I want my first build to be this open, a retreat or a studio as much as a house, just to see what I can do with the space, and this is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!

  • Reply Jen March 18, 2015 at 7:43 pm

    I love this! I would like to see a thin, half-wall next to the bed. Bed side could have a TV & bedside storage, while the other side could be the kitchen. That leaves the middle for storage & a lounge area. Otherwise, this is really so excellent! Well done.

    Is it for sale or would you sell it?

    […] and will be moving to Saltspring Island once completed. The layout will be similar to “The Walden”, pictured below. This is a more compact model and will be much easier to tow, and also won’t […]

    I absolutely love this home. I am currently looking at options for my retirement. It’s beautiful, clean, fresh, bright and perfect! I was wondering if there is pricing on a 20 foot model?

    Calm, light, bright, elegant. If I were to add anything it would be small, white, upholstered chair next to the bed to sit and read and sit and eat as well.

    I see storage. Under the bed, under the counter, in the bathroom. I guess if you commit to living 98 square feet, not having a lot to store is part of the deal.

    Great job, thank you!

    I love it. Would be great for young adults just starting out.
