Incredible Tiny House With Curved Gable Roof
It was built by Robert Johnson from Esk’et Building Co. He’s a journeyman carpenter who designed and built this beautiful Sqlelten tiny house in the Esk’etemc First Nation at Alkali Lake, BC. Sqlelten means salmon in Secwepemctsin, and it represents swimming against all odds.
This tiny house is built on a 20′ long x 8′ wide trailer and the tiny house is 13’6″ tall from the ground up. It has 280 square feet of interior living space including the lofts.
There’s a cozy living room with a large propane fireplace and electric baseboards for heat. It’s nice to have two sources of heat when you’re in a cold climate because that way you have a backup in case the electricity goes out, or if the propane tank is unexpectedly empty.
The first loft is accessible with a unique spiral ladder. It has a large bed, some storage space in the knee wall, and large windows to make the space feel big and bright. The ceiling is gently curved which gives you a good amount of headspace regardless of where you’re sitting up.
The second loft is above the bathroom and is accessible with a space-saving ladder on wheels. It has a more traditional style ceiling shape and two lovely round windows.
Directly opposite the front door is the kitchen with a lovely wooden countertop, a window in front of the sink for daydreaming while washing dishes, and open shelving up top to maintain an open-concept feel in the space.
There’s also an extra lip coming off the counter that’s just big enough for two people to sit around and share a meal.
We hope you take the time to check out the series of YouTube videos Robert made about his tiny house build, and if you’re ever in the area, go visit Esk’et and stay in his tiny house!!
