    Another Zyl Vardos beauty. More modern than many of his previous builds. So many elements I love. Am trying to figure out the easiest way to modify my cabinets to include the toe-kick drawers. Need every possible bit of storage in my small kitchen.

    Usually I dislike all wood interiors as they look like you would be living in a sauna, however I love this type of wood panel finish. I also like the roof line which makes the loft that much more open.

    I would remove the ‘L’ of the sofa to create more floor space but that’s just your own choice of furniture. The overall colour scheme is great and the choice of darker woods at the windows avoids a uniform look. Well done to all who worked on this house.

    Wow! I love it–and the couch that looks as if my back would be very comfortable sitting on it! I do wonder if there’s space for a w/d combo there, since the pics don’t show it. I assume there’s a closet to the left of the door. Yes, I’d really like a 360-degree tour…

    Great house for one or two people!

    • Abel Zimmerman Zyl September 19, 2016, 9:47 pm

      If the kitchen counter were extended, you could put a washer cabinet there. I don’t currently recommend any of the combos that are available in North America. They have too many technical problems. There are some great compact pairs though!

      FYI: I am the builder of this house. Glad you all like it!!!

    This man is a genius, love everything about this one and his designs in particular. Excellent use of space, I wonder if the deck is removable for transportation.

  • oxide September 19, 2016, 4:23 pm

    Very clever to put the refrigerator under the staircase! There doesn’t seem to be a W/D, but I guess you could fit a small one under the staircase, where those doors are now.
    There does seem to be a tall cabinet/closet next to the stove, with pots hanging on the front of it.

  • Beth Grant DeRoos September 19, 2016, 5:59 pm

    OMGosh by golly I love this!! A real sofa set up, stairs with a handrail. Special touches like the curved window and door glass the mimic the design or the homes roof shape. And NO draweror cupboard handles to bump into, but cutouts. And look at ALL that storage space even in the kickboard areas.

    • oxide September 20, 2016, 8:17 am

      There’s a little snafu with the sofa. The shelf under the window — with the lamp on it — is 2 inches too low. The back of the sofa doesn’t fit under the shelf so there’s a 6-8 inch empty space behind the sofa. For a tiny house, that’s significant. But the fix is really easy, just raise or remove the shelf.

        oxide,
        Around here, we are quite familiar with the acronym “S.N.A.F.U.”

        Situation Normal, All Fouled Up! We usually have a couple with kippers for breakfast, three or four more by supper. To maintain perspective, handmade wine or craft beer helps. Vivacity Organic Sippin’ Gin is reserved for a really great FUBAR. Or so we hear.

        Expectation = disappointment, frustration.
        Challenge = opportunity.

    Really love this one. Very cozy just love the color they chose for the couch. It seems bright and airy. Love all the windows especially the one in the loft!! Love the woodwork, and all the storage under the stairs. Awesome kitchen cabinets! This tiny home is really lovely!! Carol🌹🌻🌷

  • Rando Thyr September 19, 2016, 7:25 pm

    My favorite is the use of toe kick drawers. Great use of space!
    Love the stair cubby holes too.

  • Robin Montana September 20, 2016, 12:49 am

    Perfectly beautiful!

  • Sparrow September 20, 2016, 11:23 am

    It’s cute, but I HATE that bathroom!!! So tiny with the toilet so close to the sink. No way I could put up with that.

  • andrea September 21, 2016, 8:14 pm

    How much did it cost to build this tiny house? This house is so beautiful! !!!

  • Allin September 21, 2016, 9:53 pm

    This is outstanding!

  • Kathy September 22, 2016, 12:08 am

    The size of the living room is fabulous! The couch and front door rock! Simply gorgeous…

  • Dan Jones September 22, 2016, 4:14 pm

    WOW! You could put up lots of narrow depth shelving over the toilet to artfully arrange all those toilleteries. Sofa accommodates extra guests (but don’t let them get too comfortable).

  • Sarah September 23, 2016, 12:35 am

    Vardos is a genius with windows, so creative! I also love the toe kick drawer with all the foil and such and the countertop! What exactly is that made of? It looks like stainless steel but has a wavy pattern.
