This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape is a studio loft over a garage. It was built by Pickell Architecture in Flemington, New Jersey.

I like the unique design and how it blends in with the trees in the background. A great way to utilize space and make a single garage into a tiny home.

    Now this one has some possibilities… Just right for the single guy (or gal) with a few choice belongings and I would imaging a small sporty vehicle… did I just describe a Mini Cooper?

    It’s a traaaap. No photos of tiny shed, just photos of larger dwelling. (which is not terrible… just not what was implied.)

    Dwellings above garages freak me out because of carbon monoxide poisoning

    So, living on a lake like I do, I can imagine this with a wrap around deck and the lower level a walkout patio room with a bedroom, bathroom, and storage space (for my kayaks). Not tiny but small enough to barely meet building requirements on the lake.

      A wraparound deck would be fantastic! I can see a nice little sewing studio in the garage area,with glass doors instead of the wood ones, or a workshop of some sort.

    Dwellings above garages DO NOT freak me out because the only way you will have carbon monoxide poisoning is if you are STUPID ENOUGH to leave the engine running while it is stored in the garage.

    Nice house though.

    Its great to see a tiny house with a garage.

    Looks like roughly 12×20, maybe 240 sq ft.

    If you made the garage part just big enough for a compact car and didn’t mind crouching, you could shrink it down to 100 sq ft and 14’6 and not need a permit in a lot of municipalities.

    I’ve seen this or similar designs before. Just the ticket if all you have is a an extremely narrow city lot and no place to park except for the street. I like it, but I’m not sure if my knees do. Perhaps an elevator in addition to the stairs.

    I moved into a house that is smaller than a former home I owned before’s master closet and bathroom were. The freedom is wonderful. I own my time. Before the house owned me. And my mom lives here too!. Just lovely.

    You need to really love your car for this design.

    The framing for having the open garage and material sized for the load must be a bit more.

  13. Interesting design , It does drop the water off the roof on to the base of the stairs which would really be annoying in a hard rain

    Can I just say I love this house and would live here in a heart beat

    Your design and vision is perfect for what I am trying to do in Vermont for their Center or Independant Living.

    I hope we can make contact and share ideas.

    This is called a Croft, a very old English design.

  17. Ann says:

    I love this! I would probably leave my car outside, though, and store all my bicycles in the garage :-)

    i think this is great! me, the only time i would put truck away is in a storm! i like that it doesnt take much room to have it all. would love to know who made it and is there plans you could look at or buy?
