When you think you have seen it all, you haven’t! Introducing the ultimate in unique tiny home design, the Yellow Submarine!!! Yes, it deserves three exclamation points because it is indeed one of those unique tiny homes that are just brilliant and cozy all in one!
Keith and Jen turned an old grain silo they found for only $1 into the ultimate retro-themed tiny house destination. While this may not be a look everyone can duplicate, it does show you how a bit of imagination, some paint, and salvaged items can come together to create a home that is cozy, comfortable, and all your own.
The combination of parts and pieces salvaged from different areas came together to create what truly looks and feels like a submarine.
The bright yellow exterior even flows right to the little deck with a patio chair and picnic table. When you think of themed destinations, this one follows through from start to finish with true style!
Stepping into the little submarine you are met with an experience unlike any you have had before. The doors between areas and entering this tiny space are just a part of the real submarine feeling in every detail.
Inside the space, you will find a small kitchenette, writing desk, sofa, two bunk beds, and a tiny upstairs captain’s chair to pretend you are steering the submarine. The bathroom functions completely for a simple shower, toilet, and sink are there for regular needs. Trust me, this is the real deal from top to bottom.
Check out all of the nautical additions throughout including the yellow and black caution tape, a life-sized Beatle mannequin in the corner, fire extinguishers, clocks, thermostats, and tons of open pipes throughout.
You’ll find a sailor’s hat hanging on one wall and portholes all over the lace. You even have a porthole-shaped mirror for doing your makeup or just checking your look before heading out for the day!
While you won’t be making a gourmet meal in this little kitchenette, you certainly won’t be going without fresh delicious food. You are provided with a microwave, hot plate, sink, counter, and a few basic pots, pans, and even a kettle. You can easily heat up leftovers, whip up a sandwich, or make a hot cup of coffee.
Throughout the Yellow Submarine, you will find those little accents that just feel like you are in a real-life submarine. Things like the warning signs, bulkhead, and of course, the fun old school scuba helmet all play a part in making this a cozy and fun destination.
In a separate section of the submarine you’ll find a set of bunks with full-sized beds that easily sleep two each. You can definitely fit comfortably in this space with 4 adults if needed.
This is not a luxury hotel, but a unique destination, so it isn’t full of extra space. That said, you can stay very comfortably and have the needed privacy you want throughout the space, all while enjoying a fun experience.
It’s the little details here that make a difference. Things like posters on the walls and ceilings above the bunk that you might see in a real submarine, or the thermometors and pressure guages everywhere that make it real.
I love the addition of the labels going into different spaces. At the top of what once was the grain silo, you find the bathroom nestled into this corner!
The bathroom is not a spa, but it is cozy. The metal-lined shower stall is larger than some and the toilet, with the fun accent of yellow caution tape, is more than sufficient for your needs. Unique, but functional, is the name of the game in this tiny home.
This is an odd angle but shows you the view from the captain’s deck with the steering wheel. Other than for fancy, this isn’t a really functional space but is tons of fun to include.
Up here you can kick back and relax as the captain on deck and read a good book with a lovely view.
The experience here is one that is ideal for many types of people. If you like the retro feeling involved, it is sure to please. Fans of classic Beatles music and paraphernalia will absolutely adore this tiny home.
Of course, those who used to be in the Navy and lived in a submarine for a time might also enjoy a night or two back in a space that feels like home to them.
With gorgeous views outside, a fun unique experience inside, and a story you can tell for years to come, this is sure to be a hit with anyone planning a destination trip.
