Underneath of the desk is a pull-out dining area including two benches so you can still have friends over for dinner and plenty of space for crafting or working. There is more storage included in the stairs heading up to the raised bed area, including a little pet nook under one of the stairs.

    It’s a very nice looking home and it has some really great ideas in it. The bathroom is classy as any I’ve ever seen. The only problem I would have is not having a loft for my bed that I don’t make every day 😆

    This is a great design. Since I am slightly over 20 , the idea of not having a loft appeals to me . I love the way tables and spare bed have been integrated under the bed area and kitchen area. Makes for a more efficient use of space I think . and not having an extra high ceiling to accommodate a loft would make it easier and cheaper to heat too especially in Canada . All the other features are nice too and the bathroom is great! The name Calliope is nice too, Greek Goddess of Epic poetry .Also a name of a steam powered organ 🙂

    Love the design. Love the fact there are no “real” lofts. Only thing missing is a comfortable place to sit. However, throw a couple of cushions on the appropriate height step, and I guess that would work. Love the pet cubby, too! If I were able to get up and down steps, this would be my ideal home — room for me and a couple of occasional guests! I think it is time to design my ideal THOW! This one, however, has so many hidden assets, it is hard to resist!

    What are the bathroom and shower walls made of? That’s an interesting, pretty look. This is an odd home in that there is no loft and yet you need to go up steps just to get to the kitchen and bed.

      The bathroom looks like they did it with Vinyl wallpaper, the 100% kind, which is popular in many high end homes with literally hundreds of designs and styles to choose from these days…

      While it may seem odd, but it’s not too uncommon to see tiny houses employ such measures to integrate storage, house mechanicals, create multi-functional spaces, create separation of different sections of a home without needing walls, etc. with incremental use of vertical space. It’s all just part of making the most use of every sq inch of space.

      Sometimes, they even still include the loft for a multi-level use of vertical space…

      You can check out “Erin Adams: Living the Dream in a Tiny House!” youtube channel, for an example, her home utilizes 3 levels for the rear section. The bottom level is exterior storage with a few steps to the middle level that is basically a closet/dressing room space, and from there is some steps to the bed/loft as basically the 3rd level…

      Other times you may not even realize it’s multi-level, such as when the whole floor is used for storage or even setup as a basement/crawl space… Or, it’s just a lesser part of the design. Like the builder Modern Tiny Living typically puts a raised floor living room in most of their homes for storage and convertible space that can be used for dining or converted into a bed…

      There are many ways to utilize vertical space into a layout design besides just the most common… But lofts are typically the cheaper, simpler, and easier to do option…

    Finally a floor plan without loft, good ground clearance and under 30 ft. Beside that plenty of great ideas with the weight where it belongs, a decent dining, although I would prefer folding chairs instead of benches, and working desk as less overall height.
    However, where is light there is shadow, it lacks a living space as long a the owners don’t lounge in their bed.
    I am still believing that a lift up to ceiling bed is the solution to reduce overall length.
    Otherwise well thought design and color selection.

      Lift-up beds are definitely a great idea. Did you see the one in the Bantha?

      • Michael
        January 15, 2021, 7:34 pm

        Yes, I did. It’s a great conversion. I love the slide out and everything Is rock solid military grade not comparable with RV quality.

    I agree with Michael about the lift bed. That’s a great use of space. I would probably put the mattress in the bed drawer and somehow fit a sofa into the bed area on the top. With comfy pillows all the way around, it would make a lovely hang out place for friends to visit… when that sort of this happens again.
    Am I missing some words along the way, as I didn’t see an explanation for the square box in between the bench boxes under the desk area? I wonder, what’s in there?

  • Marcy

    Am I the only one who sees that this design is a fall waiting to happen? The slightest misstep, a sudden turn. The built in awning and porch are nice.

      Possible but risks are relative and not everyone will be at equal risk, there’s also always trade offs like how it will effect the functionality and practicality of the home, but generally speaking statistics show you’re more likely to have an accident in the bathroom, even in a house full of stairs and step ups and downs…

  • Marguerite Rendering

    It looks very nice, but there’s not much storage, and that bed would be difficult to make.

    • James D.
      January 17, 2021, 1:16 am

      Well, yes and no, it’s an off-grid home. So some space is dedicated for the water tanks and off-grid systems, and there is a lack of hanging storage or anything resembling a traditional closet.

      However, there’s still quite a bit of “creative” storage, as that’s really why they raised the floor and have stairs in an otherwise single level floor plan, and it houses quite a bit more than just the bench seating and dining table. Space for the pets to go and the trundle bed under the kitchen are just examples showing there’s more there that’s just hidden… and if you don’t need a guest bed then that trundle drawer can be turned into more storage as well for even more storage.

      While an embedded bed stuck in the corner does pose some difficulty in fixing it regularly but as you can more freely move around it that its arguably still easier to fix than most loft beds.
