Remember the owners of Tiffany the Tiny House and how they had purchased an island and were building a tiny octagonal foundation home to use as a rental? Well, the house is now complete!
Tim & Sam temporarily moved into the vacation spot on Shellmate Island (@shellmateisland on Instagram) so they can work out the kinks and get it ready for guests. Soon enough they’ll be putting it on Airbnb (we’ll keep you posted!) and you can enjoy a piece of their island paradise! You might also like to hear that they got approval to build the home and worked with zoning/building regulators to get it “legal.”
The 320 square foot home structure came from Deltec Homes. According to the couple, “Its unique octagon shape and custom truss system has given this home design a 99.9% success rate in the last 50 years to all major category 5 hurricanes throughout the world, making this the strongest tiny house on a foundation in the world!” Wow!
They are moving Tiffany this week from the campground where they’ve been parked and are bringing her “home” to Shellmate Island!

Tim & Sam’s Octagon Home on Shellmate Island is Complete!
Here’s what you see when you first walk in.
The home is split in half: Bed & Bath/Kitchen & Living
The counter here doubles as an eating space.
Pocket doors separate the bedroom from the rest of the home.
I love that they kept the decor simple and tasteful.
Windows provide such great natural light.
Here’s the view from the corner of the room.
A perfect place to relax on vacation.
The mini-split helps keep everything cool.
Love the French doors leading into the interior.
Love that kitchen wall!
The cabinet color is super “beachy.”
The old-fashioned sink is such a nice touch.
Here we are in the bathroom now.
This is the mirrored closet door.
Regular flush toilet and a washer/dryer combo.
Yes! A rainfall showerhead. Luxurious.
They did the tilework themselves. Looks great!
Such a spacious bathroom!
Love this place! Looks great in the dark, too.
Here’s the island! What an awesome locale!
Soon Tiffany the Tiny House will be there too.
