    the kitchenette and ladder are a hair away from non-functional. this is not a desirable place, for me.

    I love the exterior. The interior not so much

    Why is everyone so negative? Nearly every post is filled with someone, if not multiple people complaining. No credit given? Your place has a bad layout, too big, too small, that’s misplaced, I would never. Get over it. If it suites them let it be. It’s not your ‘ideal’ place. Because it is not yours, it’s their’s! Stop saying that it is a fad or trend. You’re obviously underducated, ignorant or just not accepting of social change, environmentalism or realism. WE ARE the generation that knows what is wrong with the world, the UNITED States, our communities. Applaud the people who are trying to make a difference. WE have to make a difference for our children, brothers and sisters, grand children, great grand children. They are going to suffer. Why? Because WE didn’t do anything about it. And WE had the knowledge to do so. Stop the criticism. Acknowledge that WE are trying to make a difference in this world. This is a prime example of social media, “fads,” “trends,” influencing what should be a powerful, meaningful movement for a better life, both socially and environmentally.

      Thank you for your words of encouragement. It is fantastic that we ars trying to STOP being such a “throw away” world & commend those of Us working to live & promote that concept. Now if we could just see the beauty in things & not the fault, We’d really be on the “Most Productive” track. That being said, there’s always a need for constructive critism because sometimes our thinking isn’t outside the box our brain in envisioning the project in, but surely that can be balanced with the positive features.

      Omg AJ, lay off the coffee. When people post there homes on this forum then they open themselves up to all kinds of critisisim either positive or negative. The comment section is for comments, if you don’t like it then get out of the garden. The house in my opinion is ok, design is appealing, new bathroom but they indeed put no effort or design into the kitchen.

    Looking at the interior I realized how much I am attracted to light, and this place has it!

      I might change some thing to suit me but the openness and the light are awesome. I think you need that in a small space to stop the claustrophobic feeling. Lovely home.

    I love the kitchen cabinets made from crates. The bathroom is to die for and so is the wonderful light in the home. The loft ladder would be way to scary for me to use or to let the grandkids use but otherwise a great little house.

    I would live here just for the scenery. It’s a beautiful setting for a tiny house, or any house for that matter. The inside is light and airy, but I would rearrange things to suit my taste. The bathroom is great too. Thanks for sharing it Alex.

    On many of these types of sites, people give their personal opinions….either I like it or I don’t like it. Not nessesarily saying anything bad, just their opinion. I LOVE the exterior setting. Don’t like the interior and THAT’S OK. Just MY opinion.

      Sure is 🙂 Just as long as everyone tries to be kind about it 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

    The illusion of space and lack of clutter are vital to me in a tiny home. Otherwise, I would feel claustrophobic. The only things I would change are cabinets instead of open shelves in the kitchen area and a staircase in place of the ladder to the loft. LOVE the double glass doors that bring the outside in even when they are closed and the luxurious amount of space given to the bathroom. I would make room somewhere for a washer/dryer combo. With the gorgeous scenery and landscaping, I could definitely live there.

    Nice exterior surroundings. Very pleasant. No ladder for me! Otherwise, a good rendition of a usable home.

    I like the feel of this place, the light, a sense of somewhere I’d feel good hanging out (and I’m a fan of industrial design). I also like that there is a sofa…why so often does a sofa seem to be missing? I also like the skylights, the storage space, the size of the bathroom, the location, the double doors. And that you are likely not bumping into someone each time you use some feature of the space with another. I also like that its so different and not just another variation on the same basic theme we see over and over again.

    I can see the other commentators points about improving some of the design, such as a more significant kitchen or real stairs. Though I have to say that this is probably the kind of house I’d want to create if I was a) doing it from scratch b) without the advantage of just copying a thousand other designs already out there and c) maybe trying to avoid drawing the attention of city planners or neighbors who expect your backyard shed not to be lived in. Just guessing on that last one.

      Yes it’s a really great and subtle design. — Tiny House Talk Team
