Christopher’s Tiny House from TINY: The Movie

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the film TINY: the Movie, it was produced by Christopher Smith and Merete Mueller.

They are owners of a beautiful 127 square feet home located in Colorado that costs almost nothing to power.

The couple always wanted to own their own property in the mountains but didn’t realize they could really pursue that dream until they stumbled upon the tiny house movement.

This was going to be their first construction project they had ever attempted so it was challenging but their desire to simplify and own their own house overcame all of the obstacles.

I personally love the little shelf with the books below, that’s something I would definitely need in my tiny house because I’m a big reader.

I like the wood material in the kitchen and it’s spacious enough to have room to fix up a meal which is nice.

The loft looks really cozy and I love the window with the curtain here as well as the built in book shelf for a little night reading before bedtime. Perfect way to get ready for a good night’s sleep if you ask me.

    So many things to LOVE about this small home.

    The ceiling in the loft is way to claustrophobic for me, so I would add two sky lights. Same for in the front living area. This is just me. Not keen on wood ceilings because they seem to make a place more dark and closed in. Where is the shower? Do they have a counter top convection oven they can use to roast/bake foods?

    LOVE the front living area of their home. While I am a major bibliophile I downsized my full wall bookshelf space to a small book shelf and then a Kindle. LOVE any and all who love good books.

      Since you love to read…I will share with you the best book I have read in years. It will also confirm why you should pursue your interest in the Tiny House Movement. “Neighbors At War!” by Ward Lucas

    I’d move the door to the center so you could have a couch/bed/desk/ or closet on each side instead of wasting 14sq’, over 10% of it’s room.

    Where do they put their clothes??

    Undeniably elegant, but where do they keep their clothes? There doesn’t seem to be a closet anywhere.

      Mother, Rebecca, opposite the kitchen is 7’x2.5′ which can easily have 4’x2.5′ shower/ toilet and a 3’x2.5′ closet. Whether it’s there who knows but something is.

      I agree the loft is tight but I would just use it for storage and sleep on a couch/bed instead. I can go pee in the middle of the night without really waking up but climbing down and back up the ladder to sleep in the loft means full awake and harder to get back asleep.

      Plus in Fla high up in the roof peak is hotter, heat rises, much of the yr is another strike against it. I have 2 4′ x7′ lofts above me and they make great storage. Too hot to sleep in.

    Hey everyone! There is a narrow closet between the back of the bookshelf and the bathroom (we access it through a door next to the spice rack in the kitchen). Also clothes are kept in two big storage stools under the front table, and in the built-in cupboards along the living room walls. Two smaller cubbies up in the sleeping loft work for undies and other little things. Thanks Alex for posting! 🙂

    This is a truly cute and cozy home. If you are happy, and looks like you are, then that is all that matters which is a big part of tiny house living, right? What I would do or do different would only be for me and I believe that y’all (yep a suthener LOL) are doing what makes you happy. Love the house and the warm feeling it shows in the photos of a happy home. The would could use a lot more happiness. Good job! Really do love it.

    I love all the wood! It’s nice to see a real “couch”
    instead of the bench used. They did a lovely job! I’ll be their first customer if they ever want to go into business.

    Hey! Great movie, great story! I really like the fact that it’s off grid. However, in the movie, they only addressed their need for electricity coming from the solar panel. I was most curious about how water was addressed. I assume there was some sort of rain water collection, but I’m not sure how that would work in the summer.
    Anyone have any idea what they did for water?
