Tiny houses seem to speak to something in many of us. Whether it is the child inside, looking for the cozy hole to play house or fort, or something about the idea of a simple life.
Here’s one that is so inviting, it makes living in a space the size of a single room seem like the only choice that makes sense.
Small even for a tiny, this trailer-mounted cabin measures 6 feet square.
The entire space is 6×6 feet, but once you see how well laid out it is, you’d swear it was much larger. Everything from the beautifully stained front door to the quaint tiny kitchen just says ‘home’. The house sits on a trailer and at first glance, would be mistaken for a tool or garden shed.

It has a plywood paneled exterior with a corrugated metal roof. The interior is essentially half bed, half kitchen counter. The bed rests against the wall, inviting you to settle in with a good book.
Across from the bed, stained rough lumber counters provide space for cooking, with a hot plate and shelves above. There’s more room for entertaining than you’d think!

The walls and ceiling are a brilliant white, leading to a sort-of corrugated metal wainscot that serves as décor and back splash for the kitchen counter. In the rear a charming bay window provides a generous shelf, overflowing with house plants.

The floor is covered in a rough, stained pine and the open kitchen counter frame and space under the bed are both filled with the necessities of life and provide plenty of storage for everything one person could need to survive in this cottage.

The simple construction is evident in the open framed ceiling, but the flat trim neatly hides all that needs hidden behind the clean white finish.
Built-in puck lights provide adequate illumination and items like the window blinds and small scale wall art take it out of the realm of garden shed and clearly into the world of tiny houses.
