Many Americans are trading in their big homes for Tiny Houses on wheels. This may seem extreme for some people, but tiny houses offer just the right amount of living space with a lot of freedom. Tiny houses interested this Rustic Tiny House’s owners because they wanted to spend more time outdoors on their bikes and less time maintaining their home. These owners, like many tiny house owners, feel that being outside with nature is more important than material goods.
The Entryway to this tiny home features a wood burning stove front and center. This stove is little, but it can easily heat the entire house for a very small amount of money. Since the entrance door is in the middle of the tiny house, there is a reading nook to to the left and the kitchen is to the right. The reading nook also doubles as a bedroom for guests. Although the breakfast bar only has seating for two, there is a lot of extra storage in the cupboards underneath.
The View From Above
From here, we can better see the cozy reading nook in the living area. The owners’ dog has a spacious crate below the reading nook because he could not go up the steep tiny house stairs. The closet beside the reading nook is perfect for storage. The bike rack on the ceiling is a great storage solution in this tiny space. The pulley on the wall moves the rack up and down.
Although this kitchen is very small, it doesn’t feel very crowded. This is because of the light paint color, the white cabinets, and the open shelving. The owners added a silver back splash, made of a faux tin material, usually used on ceilings. This clever design idea is brilliant because it adds a vintage touch to the kitchen. This tiny home is full of cute rustic ideas that make the home feel warm an inviting.
Right next to the kitchen is a very large bathroom. Most tiny homes only include a stall shower, but this little house has a very large soaker tub. Since the owners are cyclists, they wanted a large tub for relaxing their muscles after a long ride. The wooden soaker tub was a great choice because it has the functionality the owners needed, without sacrificing the rustic style. Who wouldn’t want a beautiful bath like this?
The bedroom is nestled in the loft of the tiny home. Although the ceilings are low, the loft features five windows and two skylights for plenty of natural light. They continued the rustic laminate flooring from the first floor up in the loft as well for a more cohesive look. The red quilt and mismatched pillows are cute country details for this cozy loft.
