11×40 Hensley Home: Tiny House Built for Retirement

Sean and Kristi Hensley completed their amazing retirement tiny house in September 2022, and now they’re open for business helping others reach their tiny house dreams! Sean worked in construction his whole life, and after a few smaller-scale projects, including converting a cargo trailer for a cross-country trip, he and Kristi realized they were ready to downsize.

Coming in at 440 square feet, this home bursts with character, clever features, and luxury design elements. Wait until you see how cleverly they used the corner of the kitchen (no lazy susan!), the breathtaking bathroom, and all the brilliant storage solutions they incorporated into the design. Let us know in the comments what you liked best!

    This is the most brilliantly designed tiny home I’ve ever seen!!!!!
    It really is exquisitely done and incredibly practical with style style style to boot!
    Congratulations on a unique, perfectly made tiny home.
    I especially love the way you have incorporated your artwork. As a fellow collector of exquisite carvings myself as well as unique ethnic art pieces, I have wondered how I could incorporate them into a tiny home and now I see how.
    Thank you for sharing your extraordinary home.
