Tiny homes are gaining in popularity, so the designs are getting more and more unique and fun. Gone are the days of one-room tiny homes made of wood, and I for one love seeing all these new creations. Such as this unique tiny home recently completed by the company Tiny Heirloom of Portland, Oregon. It was commissioned by a couple from Portland who wanted a small home with an old-fashioned feel to it. And I think they succeeded.
The interior is comprised of a spacious kitchen, which was made such by separating it into two sections, one on either side of the tiny home. It features counters made of stone, which are hopefully faux stone, though details are unclear on that. The home also features a nicely sized bathroom, which is fitted with a sink, toilet and an old-fashioned clawfoot tub. There is a gorgeous living wall located on the wall next to the tub, which is a very nice design element.
Apart from the old-world charm that permeates this home it also features a very modern design element. It’s an automated built-in platform, which is basically an all-in-one unit that can become the dining area, stairs and living space, and also hides the bed. It can be operated electronically by the push of a button.
It’s nice to see a tiny home without a loft bedroom, since just looking at those miniscule amounts of headspace in pictures makes me feel a little claustrophobic. This one solves that problem by keeping everything open. The walls are also painted white, which adds to the feeling of spaciousness, and goes very nicely with the dark wood used for the flooring and the transformer platform.
There is no information on how much the house cost to design and built, though given the high-end décor (which includes a crystal chandelier) it was likely not cheap.
