    Her home is nicely done! Love the light wood color of her cabinets! It makes her home bright and airy! Thank you for sharing!🌷🌹🌷

    Thank-you Alex. Her blog will be helpful as I bought a gutted trailer that I plan to do the same with, all green materials, all natural. Only unnatural part will be the aluminum frame (not wood) which meant no mold (I’m highly allergic). If it will just stop snowing so I can work on it!

    Gotta ask: what is the 2 x 4 unit in front of the kitchen counter for? Shelving? I don’t understand as it blocks use of the counter.

    Thanks.

      if you look at the pictures of the loft above the kitchen you will see that this is a ladder up to the loft.

    I think a 10 year old travel trailer in decent condition. Fix it up as nessary. Customize a thing or two should be able to squeeze that off for an affordable amount. That’s all that’s nessary for the homeless peeps I know. Most of them live under the stars here in Florida’s pan handle. They’d be happy with less.

    Finally somebody who tried to avoid all the toxic stuff surrounding us which is extremely important for a tiny space.
    However, it isn’t easy because we moved away from mother nature so far already and when you find something itsmore expensive than mass production.
    But we can change that by buying more natural and less chemical staff.
    Consumer should be aware of this power.
    A very informative and well founded blog which has been overdue and opens eyes how far away we are.
    Great job.

    Hear, hear, totally concur with you Edward.

    Also, would people please use “links” provided in the articles BEFORE asking how much/where is/etc. Easy to see, they are blue words with blue underlining.

    breaking up the access to the bedroom loft is very crafty. (half the distance if you fall out of bed.) The platform offered a great place to tuck away more kitchen (refrigerator, some under cabinets)…
    but i would be thinking about modifying the last few rungs up to the top… if they were pushed down to the end wall (beside the stove) there would be better access using the “countertop”…i found myself visually trying to fit in a winder stair with some cubbies in the back corner.

    but the concept is fantastic. small, efficient, simple and affordable….bonus: a workable place for folks burdened with sensitivity to molds, chemicals, etc.

    fyi: for the sensitives among us….plants clean the air…The NASA studies on indoor pollution done in 1989 recommends 15 to 18 plants in 6 to 8-inch- diameter containers to clean the air in an average 1,800 square foot house. That’s roughly one plant per 100 square feet of floor space.
    so, let me do the math….a tiny 250 sf house needs 3 pots, which could sit on the edge of the loft.!

      Oh I had no idea about those stats! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I need to get another plant!

      • James D. April 13, 2017, 7:52 am

        Lauzon also has a specially treated flooring they call Pure Genius® Air Purifier Floor, which also helps neutralize VOCs when exposed to sunlight… and you could probably use it for your walls too…

        Some household plants are still a good idea, though…

      • Megan April 26, 2017, 11:12 am

        Yes plants are great for indoor air! Also, certain plants are better at removing certain things… I have chemical allergies, so I read the original study and selected plants that did the best job on my allergens!!

    Thank you for sharing this! It will save me so much research as we plan our next home around my chemical allergies. Also, it’s not a common topic, but so many are being made sick by their homes and don’t know it! That is not cool! Thanks for bringing it up and making people aware that not all housing materials are as great as the marketing says…

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 26, 2017, 3:43 pm

      I’m so glad this could be helpful for you, Megan!

  • sara April 27, 2017, 7:34 pm

    I love the idea of a toxin free home. The pay out of this one seems a little strange. But I like the raw wood look. I’m thinking a constant fresh air circulator would be important for a tiny house too.

  • sara April 27, 2017, 7:36 pm

    ooops… that was supposed to be layout. Typo.

  • Cathy Veal August 30, 2017, 9:29 am

    Little puzzled. Is that long counter top looking thing really a counter top? Or is it the pathway, floor to the loft?
