This is the story of a couple’s incredible 39-ft. gooseneck tiny house on wheels and their stand-up desk loft office space.

That’s right – they used what would normally have been a sleeping loft for most people as an office. Specifically, a stand-up desk office space. I think it’s genius! How about you?

Gaetan, a former contractor, was hit with cancer last year and decided to build a tiny house while going through chemo treatments. The end result is a beautiful 22 by 8 foot tiny house, complete with two lofts, a kitchen and bathroom, and living space.

It has a staircase to one loft, and an awesome collapsible ladder up to the other loft. There’s also a fold-down table for mealtime. It runs off electric and the workmanship looks amazing. He’s asking $55K (CAD) for the house. You can contact him via his Facebook page here.

This is one way you can get work done during van life using an outdoor stand up desk mounted on your van’s custom bumper. Yes, this is the story of a stand up desk mounted on the front bumper of this man’s van conversion!

This bumper happens to be an Aluminess van conversion specialty bumper, the adventurous mountain bike couple also use it to hang their hammocks, by the way. Plus the van lifer, @outsidenomad, is also using a FlexFixx balance board to make his stand up work session even better. Check it out below! And please, let us know what you think in the comments. I had never thought of this before and just think it’s awesome! How about you?

I think my favorite aspect of tiny homes has to be that they force a certain amount of creativity that one doesn’t need in a larger home. That becomes incredibly evident in this cabinet maker’s stunning 39 ft. tiny house in Australia!

Colin and his wife Megan built this incredible modern tiny house on a gooseneck trailer. While they subcontracted the frame and some other aspects, Colin’s expertise as a cabinet-maker came out as he added all kinds of hidden drawers and cubbies to help them store and organize their goods.

There is seriously not an inch wasted in this home! They have a stand-up bedroom over the gooseneck complete with plenty of hanging storage and dream-worthy closets, a living room with a large comfortable couch, and even a clever stand-up work desk space in the secondary loft. Living Big in a Tiny House did a lovely job (as always) interviewing the couple and touring their home, so check that out at the end of the post!

It’s great for small spaces like tiny homes, cabins, and studios.

But it can also be a useful piece of multi-functional furniture in a place like an art studio, right?

When it’s time to work you can use it as a desk. And when it’s time to host an event you can easily transform it into a bar! Pretty clever, isn’t it?

Small space furniture helps you create more storage with the same square footage thanks to smart design.

That’s why I went to visit my local Murphy Bed Center.

Also known as the More Space Place.

Surprisingly I hardly ever see many people utilizing Murphy beds in small spaces.

Maybe it’s because of the price, I don’t know.

But either way they seem to be a great solution for your tiny or small house.

Thanks to multipurpose furniture like this you’re able to…

  • Hide your bed up against the wall when you’re not using it
  • Bring down a desk that was otherwise hidden
  • Turn your living room into a guest bedroom

The possibilities can be endless. So here’s what I found while I was there.
