    Tremendous curb appeal. Beautiful little house.
    Nice use of space. It looks as though you both are very happy with the house too.

    What a delightful couple! They have fashioned a terrific space that is cozy and just what they need. Love, also their darling canine — so nice to see a pair so very happy — what more do they need??

    Love it! Who was the builder? Do they have house plans for this home?

    Love it! I really like the light colored wood, it could be a sand/beach feel as well as the warm cozy snow theme. Ive recently gotten interested in the idea of tiny home living for the future. I wonder about heating since ur in a cold environment. Also wish u might have shared where’s the hot water tank.

      Looks like they want questions posted on their youtube channel for a quick response but I can tell you that they have 2 electric heaters, one by the wall by the stairs and one by the desk. Seems they usually only need to use one and only set it to about 50% when sleeping, because of the way the heat rises to the loft, and ceiling fan helps circulate the warmed air…
