Recently I found out about a new tiny house builder.
You’ll get the complete tour of the house below.
Andrew Gilcheck is the man behind Itty Bitty House Company.
The tiny home you’ll see here has a relatively large porch and is completely non-toxic.
On the outside, it’s all solid cedar siding, trim, and decking.
The roof is metal and the windows are all full crank-out casement while the others are crank out awning style windows.

The front door is fully insulated wood with a double pane fully insulated glass window.
The porch light uses an LED bulb, as well as all of the other lights in the home.
It has an upstairs sleeping loft with a king-sized bed and a wide awning window.
There’s another matching window directly across to provide a cross-flow ventilation throughout the house.
Going Inside the Itty Bitty House
Right when you walk in, there are two closets with hotel-like features on your left and right.
One of them has a hanging rod and shelf, much like a hotel closet. You can also fit a broom and vacuum there too.
The other one has 12 coat hooks with a nice, deep shelf up above and a few more below.
Directly above that there’s a mini loft so you can place your plants or other decorations right by the awning window opposite of the sleeping loft.
The flooring throughout the house is 3/4 inch solid hickory (tongue and groove).
You’ll find built-in bookshelves throughout so there’s plenty of storage.
Two Workstations, Entertainment Center, and Heat!
The eight-foot long desk is large enough for two people to simultaneously use and it also holds entertainment center electronics.
This is also where the Dickinson boat fireplace is located, which is the heat source for the entire house.
Directly above that area, there’s a 52″ flat screen television between the windows and workstations.
Directly opposite of that is an 8′ 6″ long couch with storage underneath.
Head towards the kitchen and there’s plenty of pantry storage in the mini hallway.
There’s yet another closet door with plenty of shelves, storage nooks, and two hanging rods.
This closet is large enough to walk into and use as a dressing room!
The kitchen is designed in the form of an L and there’s a…
- countertop oven,
- 2-burner propane cooktop,
- and a ventilation range hood.
On one of the walls, you can hang your pots, pans, and cooking utensils.
The kitchen also has a double base stainless steel sink and a really compact slide out washing machine for your laundry.
But also check out these small washing machines.
This tiny house design even includes slide out trash cans underneath the sink. This area is also where the water heater is located.
The electrical breaker box is also down there too. Nice!
To get to the bathroom… The wall just slides over and covers a book case. So you open the bathroom, and the shelves are covered.
Close the bathroom, and you see your shelves. I like this!
Go into the bathroom and there’s a full 32″ stand up shower and a fold out towel rod along with a…
- full window,
- powerful bath fan,
- shelving up to the roof for storage,
- and a built-in composting toilet.
They also included an extendible flip out mirror. There’s no separate bathroom sink, instead, you simply use the kitchen sink to wash your hands.
And don’t worry, because the extendible mirror reaches the kitchen sink.
