This is the story of Maria and Tino, their baby, and the tiny house they’ve been living in.

They’re a young couple who moved to the United States from Germany and have been living as a young family with a baby in this customized tiny home. For example, they built a really clever floating wardrobe that I think you will like! Check it out below! This story is based on this video from the Tiny House Expedition YouTube Channel.

Their Family Tiny Home in Portland

Their kitchen is simple but very functional.

There’s a storage staircase to the loft and sliding barn door access to the bathroom.

There’s a neat custom table with storage that serves as an office.

The couple custom-built their own floating wardrobe. This is so smart!

It cleverly stores up into the ceiling. See how it all works in the video tour below!

They’ve also got this wonderful living area with beautiful windows and a fold-flat couch that can be an additional sleeping space.

This is their upstairs sleeping quarters. The baby’s bed is right next to them.

The bathroom has a nice window. Explained in detail in the video tour!

What do you think of this family’s tiny house so far? Pretty nice, right?

They own the tiny house and have been renting the space to park it.

    Yes that is a pretty clever clothing solution. I also like their enclosed stairs, where the storage backs up to the bathroom. It allows space for a laundry or more storage in the bathroom. Its a nice home, and I wish the three of them wonderful times in it.

    I’m an 85 year old wheelchair bound widow. Husband, Tom, died 4 years ago of complications due to Parkinson’s Disease and Dementia. We did some traveling in a small motorhome and loved it. But now that I’m handicapped, my motorhome would have to be built to allow for my physical disabilities.It would need a
    power wheelchair lift. It would also need narrow, not deep, kitchen appliances and cabinets A walk-in shower and a bump out adjustable bed space. Do you have any such plans available? I have one that I drew myself if you are interested. We loved our little motorhome only 4 1/2 years before we had to sell it. It was not handicap accessable. Please send me whatever information you have available or tell me where I can send for some. Thank you, but I don’t want to talk to a salesperson. Remember that we are each just one accident or illness away from being handicapped ourselves. Sandy Samens

      So true. I myself have had a series of small strokes that have handicapped me. Doctors have told me two, but I believe I have had between 5 and 7. Mind you, I’m not complaining, just stating facts. So really I want a tiny home for myself and my disabilities, which besides the strokes includes also knee issues and memory issues along with hearing issues which I’ve had since childhood.

      I look outside and see the sun has come up and all is well-ish with the world.

    What is on the other side of the wall over the kitchen sink? The steps go up to the bedroom so there must be space underneath it?? There are also steps next to the bathroom so I take it there are two sets of steps??

      Actually, that side is the living room… Bedroom is over the bathroom… and under the living room is just storage space that is accessed from the exterior… You can see it better in the video…
