While some tiny houses opt for full appliances, Mori found that a toaster oven and portable induction burner were fine for her needs. They stay in the cabinets under the counter when not in use, which frees up space.

Unlike a lot of tiny homes that feature the bed on a loft, Thousand Crow has a pull-out queen-sized mattress that's stored under the mezzanine level during the day. Mori decided that the low headroom of a loft bed and the reduced ceiling height on the lower level made her uncomfortable, so she came up with this solution.

Living with two cats posed a unique challenge as well, particularly when it came to the litter box. Mori used a computer fan to suck the air (and the smell) through a vent, which sends it outside. It's operated with a switch.

Since Thousand Crow is on wheels, it can be taken anywhere. For now, though, Mori is living in an R.V. park and enjoying her little home. She says it's a great alternative to the financial burden that can come with a traditional home, as well as to the physical upkeep of a larger house. The new systems — like the composting toilet and tankless propane water heater — took some getting used to, but she says it's totally worth it.

You can see the journey to making Thousand Crow a reality on Mori's blog, which is full of even more great pictures and stories.
