8×8 Tiny House Design Contest Submission by Mary Parris
This is my design for the 8×8 design contest. I’m thinking a shed design with a contemporary flair and a tin roof. Keep the windows high and on the front wall only. The two side walls would have a 12″ shelf bout 6′ up running from the bath to the kitchen for storage. Baskets or crates could go on these shelves for clothes storage. Depending on your wardrobe, there would also be room for a few nick-nacks and books There should be enough base and wall cabinets in the kitchen for all the kitchen stuff. A couple of hooks on the right side wall for jackets, purse, book bags, etc.
The Murphy bed would be designed where it would raise up as it is lowered, so that the upholstered chair and ottoman could fit under it and the attached desk would lower without having to be folded up.

The bathroom idea is stolen from the motorhome industry. The floor of the 8×8 would be tile with a very slight tilt towards the front of the house. So, to take a shower, you would just need to close off the bathroom area with the wall panels, turn on the water and start singing. The water could drain into a discreetly placed tube at the front wall and down the drain (or holding tank or whatever system you set up.) kind of like drainage tile used in landscaping.
Well that’s about it.
Hope you like it.
