    Very nicely done but no seating for friends or family. Of course this is not always a bad thing;-)

    • Sharee October 28, 2015, 8:36 pm

      seating for friends is outside.

    • Lora October 29, 2015, 2:50 pm

      Hi Gale!

      I usually pull out my ottoman and use that plus, my stool and fold up chair (stored in my office/craft area) when I have people over. Or I just plop down on my counter and let them steal the comfy chair! I also use my outdoor space. There are times where a loveseat would be nice though!

  • Martha October 28, 2015, 2:16 pm

    Great use of space; terrific storage capabilities. Very well done.

    • Lora October 29, 2015, 2:52 pm

      Hey Martha! Thank you sonmich for your kind comment. One of the reasons I went with this floor plan was because of the flexible storage options. Love the stairs!!!

  • Kasey October 28, 2015, 2:31 pm

    Gosh, is that a craft room in back? I’d love to see a floorplan of this, helps to visualize. Yes, the living space is small, though. Definitely an “Entertain Outside” type of home.

    • Lora October 29, 2015, 2:55 pm

      Hi Kasey! I do have my scrap booking supplies (and triathlon gear) stored in my back room. I usually pull stuff out and work on my fold up table in the kitchen, but the back room offers great storage for all my crafty supplies. If you go to Tumbleweed’s page you can see the floor plans and designs they currently offer.

  • Dennis October 28, 2015, 3:00 pm

    I think everything looks great.

  • Nicolette October 28, 2015, 3:50 pm

    I love this home! My THOW is similar, but with no loft. The living space is my bedroom, with only a recliner for me to sit in. I entertain people outside, in my tiny front yard. Occasionally, someone comes in, ans I have rhem sit on a stool from my dining table.

    • Lora October 29, 2015, 2:57 pm

      I’d love to see pictures of your house too! I agree my kitchen stool and ottoman work great for “entertaining.”

    I love what she has done. Entertaining can be outside or at a restaurant or some place else . her place is not the only place people can go. If she’s like my family they rarely comes if they must travel more than a couple miles. So she’d doing it right for daily living.

    • Lora October 29, 2015, 3:01 pm

      Hi Janp! Sounds like your family is like mine! I usually trave to see them. Plus I am an introvert so I normally only have 1 or 2 people over at a time. We make it work :)

  • Trish October 28, 2015, 7:03 pm

    Although there is a lot of storage in this tiny house, it lends itself to more stuff than you need. Seems a bit cluttered and closed in for my liking.

    • Doris October 28, 2015, 8:47 pm

      And here I thought it was exceptional because she customized it for her needs, included a little washer, and worked in a tiny office/craft room! I would gladly sacrifice square footage elsewhere to have a private room in a TH. Most of us crafters are a bit messy, and people are welcome (and encouraged) to leave if they find my house too cluttered for their minimalist tendencies. :-)

      • Lora October 29, 2015, 3:09 pm

        Thanks for your observation Doris! One of the things I love about Tiny homes is that they reflect the personalities, values and lives of the people living in them. I kept the things that added value to my life for the stage of lift I am in right now. Tiny living is about knowing yourself and living without regret!

    • Lora October 29, 2015, 3:06 pm

      Hi Trish! Thanks for your perspective. I always say I am a downsizer not a true minimalist. One of the things I love about my tiny house is that it encourages me to be more intentional about what I bring into my home. But I know I have kept more than a lot of people would. It’s about knowing what adds value to your life and why!

  • Valerie October 28, 2015, 7:45 pm

    Very Sweet and Organized. I would not mind this tiny home for me.

  • Theo October 28, 2015, 8:37 pm

    Nice, however doesn’t seem made to move, ’cause you’d have to secure everything in it first. And yet another loft bed.

    • Doris October 28, 2015, 8:43 pm

      Never moved, dear, or traveled in an RV? You always have to secure things.

      • Theo October 29, 2015, 12:16 am

        Moving is entirely different from traveling in a RV, after 20 plus years in the military I know the difference. And, yes, I have traveled in RVs, and lived in a couple. And did NOT have to secure every single thing in them to travel, as would have to be done with this one.

        • Chel October 29, 2015, 10:21 am

          THOWs don’t seem to be moved as often as RVs. Makes sense as an RV would be lighter and use less gasoline. Daily life convenience is more important than occasional movement.

    • Lora October 29, 2015, 3:13 pm

      Hi Theo! You are absolutely right about the challenges of moving my house right now! Luckily, right now I am in a long-term parking situation and plan to only move my THOW once every year or two for a while. When I am ready to be more mobile I will have to and some modifications.

  • CharlotteMo October 28, 2015, 8:58 pm

    I love this! Can you please tell me where you found those delicious blue raku-looking pots? Wonderful sunshine patio area in the Georgia pines. Great vibes. Lucky girl!
    P.S. Are you always that neat? I’m jealous.

  • Liz October 28, 2015, 10:05 pm

    Love it! Very neat and organized. Lots of great storage space.
    Beautiful patio too!

  • Great Grandma Ginny October 29, 2015, 10:51 pm

    You have done a beautiful job in making your home so cozy and livable. You also did an amazing job with your photos. I have been following the THM for some years now & this is the first time I can actually see where I would put this or that. From your photos I also am getting a real sense of the space or how many steps it is from the chair to the washer, or to the bathroom etc. I can see how I would make the bed and ever so much more. Thank you so much for being so real with your posting. It ranks in the top 3 or all time… Be blessed…

    • Lora October 30, 2015, 6:56 am

      Thank you so much for your sweet compliment! I have to give credit for the photos to my amazing photographer (and sister) at http://www.fullquiverphotography.com. She did a great job capturing the feel of my house! I alway encourage people to try and walk through as many times as possible to get a good sense of the space. Good luck to you in your journey.

  • Sue Wagner November 3, 2015, 10:02 am

    Love your tiny house! Could you tell me where you got your sign “Been There – Ran That”? My husband does half marathons and has medals and I would love to get him something like that for Christmas. Thanks!

    • Lora November 12, 2015, 8:28 pm

      Hi Sue! Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. My sister got this for me as a gift two years ago. I don’t think the women who made it are still in business, but I will see if I can find out!

      • Sue November 12, 2015, 10:45 pm

        Thanks for getting back to me Lora. I did find someone who can make me a sign similar to yours so you don’t have to find out about the woman who made yours.

  • Carole November 11, 2015, 8:10 pm

    So are you parked on the afb? Are u at the fam camp? I thought there was a limit to the time u spend there.

    • Lora November 12, 2015, 8:30 pm

      Hi Carole! I am parked on base right now. Each park has different rules for how long you can stay, so it’s worth checking out the base where you are considering staying. I have a back-up local park in case I have to move :)
