1500-sq.-ft. Cabin with ‘Tiny House Style’


This is a 1500-sq.-ft. cabin with ‘tiny house style’. But this cabin is so tall, that the loft has its own loft.

It’s basically, a huge tiny house, right? It’s a big cabin with tiny house style and it could be a great design for a family who’s in love with cabins. This one is a vacation rental out of Wills Point, Texas. Take a look at it below and let me know what your thoughts are about it.

Beautiful 1500-sq.-ft. Cabin on 130 Acres in Wills Point, Texas

What do you think of this cabin?

Sometimes, readers get a little bit frustrated that I share homes that are this big from time to time and I put them in our small houses section. But I do that because I’ve seen so many people go tiny, only to sell their tiny house. So I often ask, what if they just found a way to go small instead of tiny? Would it have lasted longer and served them better? And so those are the questions I pass on to you because only you the reader can answer it for yourself. Before going tiny, consider going small just because it might be a better fit long-term (and that’s really important).

    Thank you for sharing this. I like seeing smaller homes. 1500 sf isn’t as small as small (lol) but for many people, it is down-sizing. I think it’s a great option. This one is a beautiful home. I could live there full-time, for sure. I love that little reading nook with double-doors to the deck.

      While I enjoy the tiny homes, viewing them makes me feel frustrated. I just cannot fathom living in anything less than 700 sq ft. I’ve subscribed to the Small Home newsletter, but I rarely see anything that is small. Anything between 700 and 1200 sq ft is what I’m most interested in seeing. So yes! PLEASE keep sharing these larger small or tiny homes!

      Another point of frustration is lack of information. We see these lovely homes and there is no information of blueprints, builders, or cost. PLEASE start including this information. It would be so helpful to those of us that are “shopping” for our next home!

      Thank you for sharing. I enjoy getting your newsletter.

    I really fell in love with this one I have 560sq. ft. I could have used the extra ROOM FOR STORAE or more company when folks come from full sized home try small first (you were right) then you can always move down to tiny

    It is a very nice house, bit many of us I assume can’t really get motivated when we have no idea what the price range is for these homes.

    My wife and I are looking to build and we don’t want tiny, but we don’t want big either. A modern house this size or smaller with modern touches and open living would be great. But we also do t want to break the bank either.

    Where can we look at different designers in pre Fab, container, or even dome that isn’t going to kill us? Something less than $200k.

    Thank you.

      It all depends on what you want. Why does a BMW cost more than a Mini Cooper?

    1500 sqft may be “small” in US standards but it can easily be a comfortable 5-bedroom house in the UK…
    If it was more like 800sqft with 5 bedrooms then I just might give you that definition of small.

    For two people a 1,000 square foot house is plenty big, if well designed. This house seems large to me, and not especially efficient. But I like to look at pretty much all houses.

    Beautiful home in nature can see myself here. Have been downsizing as I age and looking for smart ideas in smaller spaces with windows and tall walls and big bathrooms. Thanks for sharing great food for thought😻

    Thank you for sharing. After being in love with tiny houses for years (think Jay S. when he was still in Iowa), I have realized that I wouldn’t be happy in a very tiny house. I love to cook and bake. I don’t need a large kitchen, but a workable one. I love wood heat and want a woodstove large enough to rely on for heat. Currently I heat my house with the smallest Jotul. But I don’t want to burn pinecones for heat. These are just a few things that are difficult to fit into 200 sq feet. I am living in a very comfortable 600 sq ft cottage and have no desire for more space. However, in showing larger houses like this one, I can see other optimal layouts and designs.
    So thank you again for sharing!

      Hi Mary–I’m sort of leaning toward larger-than-tiny myself. 600 sf sounds perfect to me. I currently live in a 450 sf apartment and if it had just a wee bit more space for a little home office/guest room, it’d be perfect.

    1500 sq. ft. to most North “Americans purchasing a new home, is small. its a great design. When you have a house of this size, you’re only covering the earth for about 750 sq. ft. which is better than spreading it. If stairs aren’t an issue for you, this is great. Thank you for showing this home. Like the design. With the ceilings, it would most likely feel a lot larger than its 1500 sq. ft.

    After the flooding in New Orleans, Lowe’s created some small homes, which included some which were two stories. They could be purchased as a kit and be added on to as money and time afforded. Back in the 1970s/early 80s there was also a design called a grow house. No not that kind of “grow house”, but a house, which when built had a roughed in second story, just open. It was created with the thought, a young couple could afford a very basic house and live on the main floor. As time and money were available, the second floor would be completed and the bedrooms would be upstairs and the first floor would be come living space.
    Ran across a house plan book from the mid 50s and the bungalows were all approx. 900 sq. ft. to 1300 sq. ft. that was the size working/middle class families lived in and brand new in the 50s those houses sold for $9K to $12K on a large lot. those lots now go for a million or more. the houses now being built on those lots are over 3000 sq ft. Wonder if they’re any happier?

    Alex, I found this on VRBO, I don’t even remember how I got there! I fell in love then, it is just beautiful. Who would have thought green cabinets would be fabulous? I am dying to sit in the soft chair facing the double doors with a cup of tea and good book. I also have always wanted a little reading nook above my master bedroom in a loft. So, I know it is for others to sleep in but I would like a tiny one that I can put tons of pillows and a cozy light and read the day away. Perfect house, I do wish you could have given us pictures of plans. Alex, please continue to give us these types of houses. My husband & I are downsizing and we are looking for plans for a perfect 3 bed, 2 bath, 1100 sq’ house (we are in a 3000 sq’ house now.) Keep sharing!
