The Shilling 768 Sq. Ft. ADU by Wishbone Tiny Homes

If you’re looking to downsize, but under-400 sq. ft. is just too little, consider the Shilling 768 sq. ft. ADU (accessory dwelling unit) by Wishbone Tiny Homes.


This was built for a client on land that already had a larger home on it, and includes two bedrooms (one upstairs, one downstairs — also a loft!) and two baths. Wishbone Tiny Homes is located in Asheville, North Carolina, and they offer a number of ADUs in varying sizes. If you’re interested, check out out their full inventory here.

If you have friends or family that could allow it, you might be able to build an ADU on their property as one option for going tinier. Enjoy!

The Shilling 768 Sq. Ft. ADU by Wishbone Tiny Homes

Beautiful burnt orange door takes you inside.

Quaint kitchen with all the basics (even a dishwasher!)

The ladder moves to help you reach high-up cabinets.

Nice island for extra counter space and some seating.

Living room area with a comfy couch.

Separate mudroom leads into the main area of the house.

Here’s the loft bedroom for your guests.

Subway tiles in the large and spacious shower stall.

The extra square footage allows for a stackable unit. Yay!

Stairs take you down to the master bedroom/large den/office.


No wasted space with these shelves! Add whatever you need to.

Downstairs master: Big open room ready for anything!

Could serve a few purposes if you so desired.

Another bathroom means no late-night trips up and down stairs.

Clean, white and bright in here!

Downstairs bathroom has a smaller shower stall.

Need storage? Check out this amazing built-in in the second bedroom.

Those sliding doors are cool!

Now that’s one cute small home!

Here’s a look at it from the back.

    Love the color of the doors, the shelving in the stairway, the sliding doors to the storage and the light colored flooring in most of the house.

    Was not too fond of the stairs going down to the Master, until I saw it was en suite and then I was converted! I do have a question about the main level bath-from the angle it looked as though the shower stall has a tub appearance??? If that is the case, I would find a place to put my clothes on the main level and then come upstairs to shower! Cute, cute, cute, but I think instead of the orange I would go with blue or some kind of purple, maybe even a muted red. I guess each owner could ask for whatever colors they choose!

    I’m not one for roughing it and climbing up and down ladders is not appealing. This little gem ticks all the boxes. It has a lovely atmosphere, pleasant surroundings and has everything you need to live comfortably. My kind of place. I’m basically a five star sort of person…hehe….

    The ladder moves to help you reach high-up cabinets.

    Uhm, no it doesn’t. It helps you to reach on top of the high up cabinets.

    That aside, I feel that 6 brackets for the bookshelf (knick knack shelf) is pretty much overkill. 3 brackets would be ample… even with heavy books on the shelf.

    Interesting layout though… food for thought.

    This is the first time I have seen a basement in a tiny home! It’s really nice! Love the fact that they have a bathroom on the same floor! This tiny home is really nice! Thanks for sharing! Really enjoyed viewing it! 🌹🌷🌹

    I am very much interested in the turquoise floor; what material is this and how was it installed?
