This is the story of how Jenna designed and built her own downstairs bedroom in her tiny house by designing and building a simple DIY futon in the couch nook of her tiny house.

She used an idea from a skoolie bus tour she did (you can watch it right here on her YouTube channel) to make the bed work. We also did a post about it here you can check out. It’s pretty cool! You can learn exactly how she did it in the video below and she has many more videos on her channel. What do you think?

This is the Vento Sectional Sofa Bed by Franz Fertig.

It’s a modern sectional sofa, but it transforms into a comfortable double bed with a bedside table in a unique way.

Unfortunately, it starts out at $6,822 so nobody can really afford it and at that price point, it just wouldn’t be practical, but what do you think of the actual design?

This is Aiko’s 260 sq. ft. apartment in Japan.

She used a multifunctional coffee table to create a living room that easily transforms into a dining room.

Since the apartment has 11.5ft ceilings, Aiko was able to take advantage of the vertical space too. So the bedroom hovers over the kitchen, and the bathroom is slightly elevated with storage underneath.

Today you are in for a huge treat: This Open Concept Modern Tiny House with an Elevator Bed. The home, designed and built in Alaska by Ana White, would be amazing simply because of the $500 DIY elevator bed she created which solves the “loft problem” — but it gets better! The house is packed full of DIY, multi-purpose furniture pieces that often do two, three — even four — different things. There’s even a hidden washer/dryer combo unit!

If you are building your own tiny house it’s well worth the time to watch the video below to learn from Anna’s brilliance. Because of her rural Alaskan location, most things were built from items you can find at the hardware store. This might be the most creative tiny house we’ve shown you to date! Plus, you can get the free plans for the storage/chair cubes shown in the video, links are at the bottom of this article.
