Take a tour of this lovable tiny home with us. It is constructed on a brief 16 foot trailer nevertheless it nonetheless feels surprisingly spacious inside with an enormous galley kitchen on the principle flooring and a queen sized mattress upstairs within the loft.

Martin Bisson from Lumbec (http://www.tinyhouselumbec.com) constructed this tiny residence, La Nautique (The Nautical in English), as his firm’s first tiny home prototype. They got here up with some actually attention-grabbing design concepts to maximise area in the home with out making it really feel cramped or crowded.

The group added additional sq. footage by constructing out onto the triangular area on the entrance of the trailer. The lounge/eating room space is constructed on this “bonus” area, and feels larger than it’s as a result of there is no overhead storage or loft above it. There are electrical hookups under the seats in the lounge in order that photo voltaic panels could possibly be linked simply.

Within the middle of the tiny home there is a surprisingly spacious galley kitchen with tons of counter area, and ample storage beneath the counter tops. There may be an on the spot scorching water heater that heats water for each the kitchen sink and the bathe however there is no water tank on this home, so it will should be hooked as much as metropolis water.

Within the kitchen, simply above the countertop, there’s additionally a small Dickinson Marine heater.

Behind the house there is a rest room with a pocket door and that is the one room the place the group bumped into some design issues. Since they wished the tiny home to be livable in all four seasons, they needed to maintain all the plumbing and the gray water tank contained in the insulated constructing envelope to stop pipes and the tank from freezing within the winter. You may see that the bathe is a step up off the ground and that there is not truly sufficient area to face up in it but (it’s a prototype in spite of everything!). What they will do to treatment that is increase the ceiling by simply over a foot, straight above the bathe, and so they’ll use the raised floor this creates within the loft as a bedside desk.

Final however not least there’s a Japanese impressed step ladder with built-in hand holds that brings you up right into a loft that has area for a queen-sized mattress. Lumbec put in a sliding window within the bed room that’s vast sufficient to suit the mattress by in order that when it is time to change the mattress, you may match the mattress by the window.

Total Mat and I have been impressed with how spacious this tiny home felt although it was on such a small trailer. We additionally beloved all the several types of wooden utilized in the home – it gave it a heat lived-in really feel that we preferred.
