This next tiny home is currently for sale in Austin, Colorado and is perfect for anyone looking for a moderately priced and rustic tiny house. The tiny house was built with sustainability in mind and is wrapped in beautiful Beetle-Kill Pine wood with rusted corrugated metal accents. The home has a metal roof and plenty of windows to let natural light fill the home.
This minimalistic 196 square foot home is priced to sell at $45,000.
The inside of the home is covered in the same beautiful wood as the exterior with lovely tones that keep it from being too bland. Large windows make the home bright and open as do the tall ceilings and skylights.
A small wood burning stove is built up on a pedestal with a stone hearth for heating the home during cooler seasons. It’s positioned in the middle of the home next to the living area so the entire home stays nice and warm.
The end of the home holds a small but efficient kitchen with white lower cabinets and a wide window. A large stainless steel sink is in the middle of the countertop and a two-burner cooktop is to the right of it.
Wall storage was added to store kitchen utensils and to free up valuable drawer space in the cabinets.
Storage was added to a wall in the home to give a place for books to be kept without needing furniture that would take up floor space.
The other end of the home holds the bathroom, laundry nook, and bedroom loft. The staircase leading to the loft has large cubbies in it for storing items.
The bathroom has a sink, composting toilet, and a unique shower and tub made out of a trough. Corrugated metal wraps around the tub and a corner caddy was added for bath items. The owner intended to add a flushable toilet and so he’s giving an allowance to the buyer to be able to do so.
If you read the listing for this tiny house, you’ll learn that the owner ended up having to sell it because of new zoning laws that no longer allow tiny homes. While we hate it for him, this could be a great opportunity for someone else to give tiny living a try!
