This is a 160 sq. ft. tiny house on wheels by Rewild Homes in Nanaimo, British Columbia.
Outside, you’ll notice it features a bright turquoise door with unique wavy shingles on the dormer with an octagonal window that sheds light into the adjacent loft.
When you go inside, you’ll find cream paneling on the walls and ceiling with contrasting dark wood trim. The wide pine floors feature a dark stain and are laid diagonally. The steps to the main sleeping loft look like old crates, also stained dark brown, with handy storage under each step. Yet the most interesting feature of this house is the very long kitchen counter top/desk space that is a cross-section of a large tree with an unfinished bark edge. Over the entryway, you’ll find a guest or storage loft, accessible by ladder.

This is small for our needs but what a beauty! I love everything about it. I love dark wood but it can be overwhelming in a THOW. This is the perfect amount to have the beauty of dark wood but keep the THOW bright and light.
Very nice, and the lines in pictures 2 & 4 are especially nice. Almost Wrightish.
And wouldn’t a Wright tiny be wonderful?
Love the shingles treatment, and the stairs. Nice clean design 🙂
I love the dark wood and white shiplap! I also would not have the “live” or “natural” edge on the counter. Elderly skin is very thin and easily bruised or punctured, and things are bound to be bumped against something in a TH far easier than a big house, which could cause the edge to become detached rather easily. Pretty is as pretty does. Of course, kitchens and bathrooms don’t belong next to each other, and I’d need a Murphy bed, but I do like the contrast of the dark wood and light shiplap, and I drooled over the exterior wave pattern shingles and the turquoise door! That makes it the perfect beach house decor!
More dangerous steps. No hand holds at all that I can see. Lose your balance and you’re a goner. And so very many of you never even consider getting back down. You sure aren’t going to just walk down, like you would do with regular steps – and again, no handholds. No, you will be on your hands and knees, because there is not sufficient height to stand. Then you will have to back onto the steps, with no handholds. I would say that turning around once you get down enough to stand would be a very bad idea, so you would back down the steps.
I agree about the steps, the vast majority seem to leave off a railing on the outside wall which would add safety & would take up minimal space. Also, as with many, the steps are fewer than should be (for safety sake) unless you are a younger person with good knees, they appear to be approx twice the rise that they should be to be comfortable for most. With more steps you can still get judicious storage use from the steps and once you get closer to the top use the space for shelves or hanging space. I also have slight concerns about the countertops, as absolutely beautiful as they are, I don’t think it allows you to get as much efficient use from them. I would also hook the ladder to the storage loft on the wall right beside the window, didn’t notice any arrangement for that. Very attractive home inside & out , good size kitchen sink. I am guessing that the appliances are to be installed later unless they are on the opposite wall to the sink which we cannot see.
A handrail would be safer for klutzes like me! Unless you are extremely tall there looks like there is enough room to stand upright going up the stairs with the usual bend over to get into the loft. You wouldn’t have to go down the stairs backwards. You start off a bit bent over and then straighten up as you go down. If you watch video clips of people getting in and out of lofts with stairs you will see how it is done.
You can bend over to go down the steps, I will not. Certainly not without a sturdy handrail at least. And I ‘really’ don’t care how many youtube videos you watch of people going up and down steps, they are being videoed, they are alert. I would like to see them traverse the same steps in the middle of the night while half asleep.
To go down you would scoot on butt until you could stand.
I noticed they were not finished in some of the photos, so maybe a handrail is added later.
I am more worried about the rough edges of the counter-tops.
Theo, it would maybe take a quick trip to the hardware store and 30 minutes to install a railing — I do not know why people have to go on and on about hand holds and railings when the fix(es) are simple to do.
It looks to me like it’s not finished. All the storage under the counters is unfaced. All you items and the potential clutter is open for all to see. I think a hand rail would be a good idea. Even the couch in the great room is open faced. I do like the beautiful woodwork. Just needs to add some finishing touches.
Wow! A new take on interiors with a blank canvas for personalizing according to your needs.
LOVE this well built house
Love the stairs and loft!
Overly woodsy and the counter seems a bit long….! I still like it though, but I’m just not sold on it…
This is a lovely home, but only if you are young and healthy. Lofts just don’t work for me. Also I would love to hae room for a couple of comfy chairs. The best part of this house is the natural light and the light colored paneling with the touches of dark wood. The outside is charming and inviting.
We are always supportive of anything with ‘wild’ in the name. Tame is so civilized. And over-rated.
We like the open feel front to rear. It visually expands the interior.
We instantly thought of a hundred uses for the huge counter. Classic re-use!
Steps == although these might not qualify as stairs, some thoughtful soul included a ridge at the side so feet automatically know to stay centered. Nice touch.
A handrail means the steps need to be wider since the rail intrudes on the body space, then that impacts the sense of openness.. Six of one, half a dozen of the other.
OK…! The kitchen counter is growing on me… I even like the live edge on it.. But I’m betting it cost a small fortune as well…!
Yea that’s the tough part!!
This TH sure could use some personal touches! I love the dark wood counter top and floor, makes a nice contrast to the white walls. Well planned out!
Yes I really love the white-on-dark wood 🙂
Now this is a better small space. I just love that kitchen counter – plenty of space for prep work, something us cooks appreciate. Also one could put a larger refrigerator in the space under the stairs. I like the stairs instead of a ladder and one could easily affix a pipe railing or whatever to the stairs and should not restrict movement on the stairs as a railing would only need to be about waist high — just high enough to hold onto and keep one from falling off the stairs. Bathroom still needs to be larger. Well built and great for who it is for.
Oh good ideas 🙂
Did I see one of those cool metal tubs in the bathroom? I love everything about the house. I would add a little metal stove/fireplace just because I love them.
