One of the challenges for tiny houses is feeling comfortable with the amount of space you have.
When I found this tiny house on a trailer for sale, I immediately noticed how neat it was that they had added a larger porch.
This way you can actually lounge outside and use the outdoor space as part of the home. You can read books, magazines, or just enjoy the scenery there.
Many people who live in a small space rave about how they have great outdoor space which they use a lot. In a house like this, it’s sort of a must, isn’t it?
This has led me to a few built in ideas that you can add to your own design so that you can expand your outdoor space (maybe I’ll share in another post)… But you can see a real example of it in action right here.
It’s hard to tell in the photo but the roof is red which actually looks really nice with the red accents on the windows and door.
If you are in the Orcas Island Eastsound, Wa area this house might still be for sale. It was purchased new one year ago for $36,000 and is now being offered for $30,000 because of health and financial reasons. Send a message to catellis -at- gmail dot com.
The builders were an Oregon company called the Home Help Team. It has a sleeping loft, compost toilet, propane heater for the shower, a refrigerator, heater, sink, and 2 burner stove.
Inside there are cedar shelves, cedar finish, and Ikea furniture. And of course the bonus 8 x 8 deck that’s designed for easy mobility (although I’m not sure EXACTLY how it works).
Total weight for towing is 7,500 pounds.
What would you design/build/construct to enjoy the outdoor space if you had a tiny house on a trailer? Would you build a porch like this? What are your ideas?
