Sean and Angie Johnson were living in a rented cottage by the beach in California and loving their life. However, they realized they were throwing money away every month for rent and so they decided to put Sean’s architecture experience to use and started to design a tiny house in which they’d live while saving up for a full-sized home years down the road. Their new tiny house is spacious and gives them the freedom to enjoy their two loves, surfing and traveling while living comfortably with their Weimaraner, two cats, and four chickens!
The home was given dark wood siding with stained accents and a huge rooftop deck with a full-sized staircase leading to the private oasis from the ground. There’s also large exterior closets attached to the home and detachable decks on both sides.
The rooftop deck is enormous and gives the couple a great place to check out the scenery while cooking on their grill.
And outdoor shower was added to the back of the home which is perfect for washing off sand and salt water after a long day of surfing.
Inside, the walls are painted a crisp white with stained wood accents around the windows and dark hardwood floors. The living room is actually in a slide-out portion of the home and features a long couch with a mounted TV. An oriental rug warms up the room and adds definition to the space.
The kitchen is in the center of the home and has a full-sized retro-inspired refrigerator, stove and oven, and an oversized farmhouse sink.
We love the fun factor that this refrigerator adds to the home! The aqua is an unexpected pop of color and it even looks great next to the tiled bathroom floor!
The bathroom is also spacious and was given an awesome tub and shower combo with tiled walls and a wood surround.
Back in the front of the home, a storage loft is accessible by a ladder that hangs on the wall at the base of the staircase when not in use.
The loft is large enough for a guest bed or it can be used for storage.
The main loft is accessed by the large staircase which contains storage below each step. There are plenty of cabinets to store clothes and items here!
Upstairs, the loft is large with plenty of headroom and enough space for a king-sized bed. Skylights and long windows were added which help grow the many plants that the couple placed in the loft.
We love how thought out this tiny house was and the fact that the couple was able to do 95% of work on their own in just under eight months! If you want to learn more about Sean and Angie, visit their Instagram page at https://www.instagram.com/casa_paspin/.
