    This is so fun! Love the “woodsy industrial” feel. It’s very homey, and your claustrophobia has served you well with the wonderful windows and skylights. Thanks for the tour! Enjoy your Tiny!

      they didn’t enjoy their house for long. One of the Youtube videos shows that the family was served with eviction (in July 2016) after 6 weeks. They set up the house in a friend’s backyard. Two dwellings on a single property is against ordinance. I don’t know what has happened since.

        It appears on Facebook that they have found a temporary home for the house. It’s so sad that these rules exist to prohibit such a great family from living in such a great home — Tiny House Talk Team

    Very nicely done. Good job. I also love the outdoor sitting area that you can see through the window.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 31, 2016, 8:41 am

      Me too 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Marsha Cowan October 29, 2016, 12:37 am

    Really cool! I love the eating area with the yellow metal stools. Looks good with the gray scheme. Very nice place!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 31, 2016, 8:42 am

      Yes those are super nice! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Nanny M October 29, 2016, 5:04 am

    Beautiful inside and the yard. I feel such a lovely vibe. Your family should be very happy here.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 31, 2016, 8:43 am

      I bet they are 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

    I loved the tour, thank you. I do have a question though about all of the fans. Why all of the fans? I saw 2-3 in your loft alone, and one when you first walk in. Does the A/C not cool your tiny house, and if not why not get a larger one? Just wondering is all. Other wise your home is perfect.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 31, 2016, 8:44 am

      Good question, Debbie. It might just help with airflow 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

    • Jessica McArthur-Smith November 1, 2016, 9:09 am

      It was an exceptionally humid day, we had a film crew coming to a tiny house, so with a window air conditioner I was just trying to pump the cool air around…especially with the door opening and closing so frequently.

  • Trish Dee October 30, 2016, 12:53 am

    The kitchen is very nice, however, I don’t understand the short door for the bathroom. I would need more privacy than that. I also am not fond of stairs sticking out into the room.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 31, 2016, 8:44 am

      Yes I like real doors too 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

  • ZACHARY E. MOHRMANN November 2, 2016, 11:02 am

    Awesome….! Very nice job….!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie November 3, 2016, 9:58 am

      I agree! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Andre November 4, 2016, 2:02 pm

    Really excellent, fantastic work and in a lovely setting. There is nothing that I dislike about this house, it’s really special and a credit to the family.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie November 7, 2016, 9:38 am

      Glad you liked it! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • joan November 5, 2016, 4:01 pm

    The idea of an outward opening door leading directly onto a set of steps without even a hand rail horrifies me. In many places this would be against code.

  • Danielle DiLisio December 30, 2016, 7:42 pm

    Great design and layout! I have cats and always wond what the vest way would be to handle the litter box – excellent!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 2, 2017, 10:00 am

      So clever! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Diana December 30, 2016, 11:53 pm

    Really lovely tiny house, loved the kitchen and all the skylights especially. Only thing I would want a closet for my clothes…but if it were mine the extra loft would probably be utilized for that. I found her to be totally annoying though.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 2, 2017, 9:57 am

      I like closets 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

  • jm January 1, 2017, 8:33 am

    Wonder if anyone is tracking the divorce rate for tiny home residents.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 2, 2017, 9:20 am

      Haha … — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Kathy Khoshfahm January 1, 2017, 10:25 pm

    Absolutely love everything about this tiny home. Great taste!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 2, 2017, 9:14 am

      It’s amazing! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Sarah January 14, 2017, 4:16 pm

    Am I dense? (Please, no answer required). I cannot locate the cat mansion. I absolutely love how they made this home their own. My favorite thing is when people’s tastes, personality, loves shine through. Great job!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 17, 2017, 12:01 pm

      Hi Sarah 🙂 You have to watch the video 🙂 It’s a little cat pod on the outside.

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN January 16, 2017, 9:43 pm

    Beautiful tiny house…!

  • jm January 17, 2017, 3:58 am

    C’mon, am I to believe that they didn’t know the ordinances before investing all that time and money in the house? And without restrictions your neighbor would have twenty thows and be charging them. Who would want that? Cat is impressive however.
