While climbing into the top bunk might have been fun when we were kids, it’s much less appealing as an adult. Loft bedrooms are a great option in tiny houses because they allow for maximization of space, BUT they have their drawbacks — especially if you have any mobility issues.
That’s why we decided to compile a list some of the best tiny houses with downstairs bedroom options we could find! We made a similar list back in 2016, but we wanted to make a part two with 52 more awesome examples of ground-floor sleeping options. From Murphy Beds to slide-out beds to full bedrooms, you’ll find it all in the list below!
Let us know which one is your favorite!

20. Aging-in-Place Tiny House on Wheels by Tiny SMART House

21. Tiny Cottage On A Foundation w/ A Bedroom
This is the EverGreen Tiny Cottage at Tuckah Farms in North Carolina. It’s built on a foundation with a screened-in porch. It also has a pretty awesome outdoor shower. What do you think? Could a tiny home like this be the right fit for you?

30. Epic Yurt on Stilts Bordering Flathead Lake, Montana
At 855 square feet, this vacation yurt definitely isn’t tiny, but it does feature two ground-floor bedrooms and gives you an idea of how to lay out a round space. Yurts come in just about any size, so you can always shrink it down to “tiny.”

40. How this tiny brick house in Australia was legally built
Because these granny flats are classified as alternative dwelling units in Australia, they can be put up in backyards legally. Now, of course, you still need someone’s backyard, but if you have family that wouldn’t mind, this a great choice!

49. The Anchor Shipping Container Tiny House by CargoHome
Ending this list with a Murphy Bed, because I still think it’s one of the better ways to get ground floor sleeping in a tiny house. It doesn’t take up space during the day, and doesn’t require a lot of set up or take down.
50. Two-Bedroom, Two-Bathroom Tiny House at Escape Tiny House Village in Florida
This is a two bedroom tiny house on wheels. More specifically, it’s a two bed, two bath mobile home built like a cabin by Escape.
