I designed it to be a no-compromise Tiny House. I wanted to make a Tiny House that avoided many of the issues typically associated with them. I wanted high ceilings, so it has 8-10 foot ceilings throughout. I wanted plenty of space, so I maxed out the dimensions allowed for a trailer and then nearly doubled the square footage by installing a large retractable deck and awning. I wanted plenty of storage, so I installed a closet, 64 cubic feet of storage and a large modular shelving system. I wanted plenty of workspace, so I gave it an 8 foot desk and plenty of outlets. And I wanted it to perform like an ordinary house, so it has heating and cooling, full insulation, standard house wiring, an instant hot water heater and a large kitchen. In addition, I did not want to have to climb into a cramped loft to sleep, so the sofa slides out from under the kitchen and becomes the bed.
What I have created is, what I think, the least compromising Tiny House I’ve seen. I planned on living in it, however, I have moved to New York City and no longer can.

This last weekend my daughter was at a friend’s Birthday party. The party was at a Horse Ranch called Wells Family Ranch. While there, I came across a Tiny Shed/House and thought you might like to see the pictures. I’m not sure what it is used for, but I did peek through the window and saw a bed of some sort.
