This is a park model tiny house in Texas on a fenced-in lot.

On the outside, you’ll see the taupe siding, brown metal roofing, and a front deck. When you step inside you’ll find a large living room with a cathedral ceiling, a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and loft bedroom.

This is Yahini Homes smallest home ever built and it’s a 112 square feet tiny house on a trailer. It’s 8′ x 14′ and meant to be off the grid with solar battery power and a rainwater collection system.

For heat the owner is planning on using a simple wood stove and since it’s well insulated it will be no problem to keep the place warm.

So I thought I might continue on our little tour of our tiny house, our construction choices, and the outcome.

Since I am currently enjoying some beautiful summer days I thought I might talk a little about our outdoor living space.

The first outdoor space we built was our front porch and since we used plans to build our post and pier foundation based on deck plans, no front porch was in the original design. We always planned to build one but we needed to have the house built first.

Our front porch may be the smallest deck ever constructed. It is essentially a free-standing structure using just four deck blocks for stability. It is attached to the house by the porch overhang. It provides a small covered spot to take off our muddy shoes before going inside.

I encourage you to read more and see our photos of the process below.

One of the challenges for tiny houses is feeling comfortable with the amount of space you have.

When I found this tiny house on a trailer for sale, I immediately noticed how neat it was that they had added a larger porch.

This way you can actually lounge outside and use the outdoor space as part of the home. You can read books, magazines, or just enjoy the scenery there.

Many people who live in a small space rave about how they have great outdoor space which they use a lot. In a house like this, it’s sort of a must, isn’t it?

This has led me to a few built in ideas that you can add to your own design so that you can expand your outdoor space (maybe I’ll share in another post)… But you can see a real example of it in action right here.
