This is the Tiny Surf House in Florida.

Outside, you’ll notice it’s a 224 sq. ft. tiny house that’s built on top of an oversized garage.

When you go inside the tiny home, you’ll find a studio-style floor plan with a pull out bed that doubles as a couch, a full kitchen, bathroom, and an upstairs sleeping loft.

In addition, the roof of the garage is used as ample outdoor space. Pretty awesome, isn’t it?

This Tiny Surf House will be featured today at 4:30 PM EST on HGTV’s Tiny House, Big Living. If you don’t have cable TV, you can watch the episode later on Amazon. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

If you’re like me you might also like thinking of ways to build tiny or build small while still meeting minimum local building and zoning codes. This small home with a big garage (floor plan) seems like it might be able to do just that.

I like to think of these ideas or designs as ‘loopholes’ towards building smaller than normally allowed by finding creative ways to do it. Now they might not always work, or even work at all, but there’s always a chance it can if you try to work with your local codes to get it right.

One loophole towards building tiny or small might be to do something like this, especially if you like having lots of garage space on your property. Pretty cool, right?
