Getting your tiny house design right is really about making the right choices for yourself when it comes to your home. Asking yourself the right questions… Like:
- Do I want to sleep on the main level?
- How much storage space do I need?
- Do I want to be able to have a washer/dryer in my tiny house?
- Do I want to sleep in a sleeping loft to create more space on the main level?
- How big or how small do I want to go?
- Should I build on wheels or on a foundation?
- Or should I build on wheels but use the house permanently?
- Should I go with a park model tiny house (~400 sq. ft.) or a tiny house on wheels (8.5-foot width limitation versus ~10-ft for park models)
- Do I want to have a dedicated workspace?
- How much multi-functional space should I have?
- What are my options when it comes to multi-functional furniture in tiny homes?
