What I Love About My Small Home: The most powerful feeling that I have about my small home will always be the love I feel while nestled inside it. It’s cozy and comfortable, a great space to do my creative art, while also serving as my perfect retreat. I love everything about it!

Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space with two people and two cats: finding your own place. My house is only 170 square feet, and in a space that small, it’s important that you feel you can go to your own place and do your own thing. It’s amazing that we are able to work on our own projects while in the company of the other. My husband will be working on his photography on the computer while I’m up in the loft diving into a good book. The house was designed for us, and that’s what makes it work.

  1. love that bathroom – shower/tub …a person could scrunch down, or if the tub was high enough, a real soak..very nice feature anywhere, and especially rare in tiny home design.

    the entire interior has a nice feel too.
