    Love this style and what appears to be great quality build! Was interested in seeing the sitting/living room area and the other loft mentioned – there were no photos provided of those areas. We are interested in a tiny house for a seasonal campground space in Maine.
    Thank you,

    If I had known there weren’t any interior pictures I would not have wasted my time opening the link. Why show the home when it wasn’t close to being completed?

      There are interior photos, six right after the first exterior photo. Photos of how it was built are below those…

    Nice kitchen for a tiny but why the space under the storage steps and fridge?

      Area is over the wheel well… So they apparently just made a platform over it that everything on that side is sitting on and left the bottom open for whatever you may want to use it for and is functionally like a toe-kick leaving space for your toes when you’re accessing the storage, just like the kitchen…

      For items like the fridge, it allows it to be all the way back and not have to stick out as much as otherwise it would have to be in front of the wheel well. Since, it can’t have a section cut out like cabinets, etc. to fit it over the wheel well.
