This tiny house is built on a short 16-foot trailer but it feels surprisingly spacious inside with a huge galley kitchen on the main floor and a queen sized bed in the upstairs loft.
Lumbec built this tiny home, La Nautique, as their first tiny house prototype. They added extra square footage to the home by building out onto the triangular space at the front of the trailer, which created some “bonus” space for a cozy living room/dining room area.

In the center of the tiny house there’s a surprisingly spacious galley kitchen with tons of counter space, and ample storage beneath the countertops. There is an instant hot water heater that heats water for both the kitchen sink and the shower but there’s no water tank in this house, so it would need to be hooked up to city water. The house is heated with a small Dickinson Marine heater.
The bathroom is the one room where the team ran into some design problems. Since they wanted the tiny house to be livable in all 4 seasons, they wanted to keep all of the plumbing and the grey water tank inside the insulated building envelope to prevent the pipes and the grey water tank from freezing in the winter. You’ll see that the shower is a step up off the floor and that there isn’t actually enough space to stand up in it yet (it is a prototype after all!). They’re planning to remedy this by raising the ceiling directly above the shower, and using the raised surface this creates in the loft as a bedside table.
