Simple How to Build a Tiny House

Seat 8 People in The Spacious Lounge

We’ve comfortably had 8 adults seated in our tiny house. The corner couch is built to seat 6, the armchair seats one more and the bottom step of the storage stairs doubles as an extra seat for the 8th person. Friends always comment on how cozy and comfortable the space is – visitors often say they don’t want to leave!

Work From Home (Like Shayne Does) Thanks to a Dedicated Office Space

Shayne runs an online recovery program for women who have bulimia. Most of the work is computer based and with our little baby Hazel to look after it makes sense to work from home. We’ve set up a dedicated office space so that Shaye can easily juggle being a mom and helping the women in her program.

Cook up a storm in the functional (but beautiful!) Kitchen

One thing that always amazes us about our tiny house is how easy it is to use our kitchen. Prior to living in here we rented a studio that was 4 times the size of Lucy. Despite being bigger, the kitchen was awful to use! It felt seriously tiny. Lucy is a far smaller building but her kitchen is well designed and feels large. We often cook meals together and it’s just awesome

And check out our convenient ‘Mason Jar Sized’ Storage Designed Into The Internal Stud Wall. This is actually part of the framing and so you’ll see it included in Lucys internal framing plans.

Stretch Out in The Shower – It’s Full Size!

We may live in a tiny house but we did not want a tiny shower! Lucys bathroom is large enough for a full sized shower so that we can stretch out and wash away the mud from the hours we spend in the garden

… And there’s plenty of space for whatever style toilet you choose – flushing or composting. We also built in some storage for bathroom essentials and a washing basket.

Snuggle Up In The Spacious Sleeping Loft 

We love sleeping up in the loft. It’s spacious enough to comfortably sit up (Tom is 6 foot and there is space to spare) but at the same time it’s super cozy. Our beautiful little girl Hazel sleeps in her Moses basket beside us. And if you’re wondering if there’s space to do ‘other’ things in the loft… Of course – how do you think Hazel was made? Okay TMI, sorry!!
