    Oh my! This TH is the best I’ve seen so far and can’t believe how much room there is inside for this kind of house. Love the office area, (if I had this TH, I would use the office for sewing area, since I do a lot of it for people and crafts. Kudos!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 7, 2016, 5:12 am

      So glad you loved it πŸ™‚ And a crafting space — great idea! — Tiny House Talk Team

    Liking the basic layout. I think I’d look to raise the roof closer to the 13.5 limit to allow for more head space in the “master loft” and be able to raise the “living room” for more head space in the 2nd bedroom. Personally leaning toward a single floor option since I haven’t been miraculously cured of age & ailments (yet!), but all in all, lovely set up! Lots of light, lots of usable living space, big front doors for actually moving furniture in instead of having to build around it…

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 7, 2016, 5:13 am

      Those are some great ideas for your future tiny πŸ™‚ Thanks for reading — Tiny House Talk Team

    Clever stair system. The high/low lofts make great use of space. I think kids would love this space–lots of climbing and hiding options.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 7, 2016, 5:14 am

      I really loved those stairs — and the lofts were super original. Thanks for reading! — Tiny House Talk Team

      • Avatar Eric October 17, 2016, 3:17 pm

        Those dog leg stairs are the most dangerous I have seen on THT ever. One slip and it is a 6 foot (at least) straight drop to the floor. No barrier at all. This would NOT be permitted in a conventional house at all. And rightly so.

  • Avatar Nancy October 8, 2016, 12:32 pm

    IDK!!! “The wall between shower and toilet is large enough (and reinforced) to install a bathroom sink.” So, no bathroom sink?

    No stove or small fridge? Says it has “room” for a small fridge.
    Thank you for bringing this TH to us. I can get lots of ideas from the TH’s you have for us to look at.

      Glad you like it! You can find out more information on her blog, as well πŸ™‚ — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Jody October 8, 2016, 9:39 pm

    Wow! I have seen a lot of tiny houses over the last few years but none that have this layout. It’s really great to see something ‘new’. What great ideas! Thanks so much. Now I have even more to think about πŸ˜‰

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 10, 2016, 2:36 pm

      Glad you liked it! Very different layout! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar ZACHARY E MOHRMANN October 10, 2016, 11:13 am

    Well it’s different….!

  • Avatar Sarah October 17, 2016, 4:51 pm

    Wow, love this, so interesting! It looks like you could use the one raised up area as a putting green. Is that what it is??

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 18, 2016, 4:09 pm

      It’s an office — with some fun green carpet πŸ™‚ — Tiny House Talk Team

      • Avatar Eric October 1, 2017, 5:45 am

        I’d call it tacky artificial turf. Fun? Barf inducing to me I’m afraid.

  • Avatar Donovan October 18, 2016, 3:10 am

    I can live in this one

      Me too! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Bigfoot October 18, 2016, 7:42 pm

    It’s a nice looking build & the design is OK. The windows allow for plenty of light & I always like a curved ceiling. However, I don’t think I could stand up in the living area unless directly in the middle. Fine for shorter folks I suppose. Is this one built on skids? Are there provisions to secure it to the ground properly? I couldn’t find any additional info on this one. I have to agree with Eric, those stairs are very dangerous. Also, you can only access 1 loft at a time which seems ridiculous to me. I don’t get it? There are some different ideas presented in this build for people to contemplate. Glad it worked for Masha & family!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 19, 2016, 8:55 am

      I think you could find some more information on her blog, Bigfoot. There are certainly things that might be better another way πŸ™‚ — Tiny House Talk Team

      • Avatar Bigfoot October 19, 2016, 8:22 pm

        Hi Natalie,
        I had already went to her blog & also tried to find something on the HGTV series this appeared on. I usually go to whatever sources are linked before offering a comment. Thanks for your work in bringing us the many posts on this site !! I almost always find useful ideas, even on the tiny homes I’m not particularly fond of. It keeps the brain gears turning πŸ™‚

        • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 20, 2016, 6:54 am

          Hi Bigfoot — Ah πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for reading the links, much appreciated! Sorry I don’t have more info on the skids/securing system. And thanks so much reading, enjoying and engaging with our pieces πŸ™‚ — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Paula November 4, 2016, 3:53 am

    Natalie, I really appreciate your responses to the questions and comments. Often the questions go unanswered, and I applaud your efforts! Lots of ideas in this TH. I would assume the moveable part of the staircase rolls easily, and then locks in each spot. Could still use rails on each wall for safety.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie November 4, 2016, 8:50 am

      Hi Paula, Thanks so much πŸ™‚ I just want to help out as much as possible. — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Vivien July 30, 2017, 4:48 pm

    Totally unsafe for somebody like me, I’d break my neck falling off those stairs. No hand rail, no me.
