Robert and Rebekah Sofia have been married for more than 30 years. After their four children grew up and left home, they decided it was time to downsize. But they weren’t just going to buy any old tiny house … they were going to build their own. And what a home they built!
It is well worth it to zoom in on this image and check out the details. The textures used in the siding are just stunning, lending the home a very fanciful look. You get a sense of something antiquated, but not in the slightest run-down. I suppose it is a sort of shabby-chic.
With the front doors open, we look past homey curtains to a bright yellow and blue couch.
Robert and Rebekah both have experience with construction and design, and described the construction process on their home as “condensed collaboration.”
Notice how beautiful the contrast is between the white walls and the dark wood beams supporting the roof.
This sparkling chandelier is just one of many fun decorative accents that brings this unique space to life.
Once of the coolest features in this house, and one of the most unusual as well, is this brick oven. Seriously, how many tiny houses can boast a brick oven? It’s perfect for making pizza!
Right underneath the circular window (which you probably noticed from the outside), there is a set of stairs leading up to a loft. Under them is ample storage and a washing machine. Storage under the stairs like this is common in tiny houses, but I think this may be the first time I have seen someone cleverly think to put their washing machine there.
There are some nice views out the windows of the house.
If you visit the Gypsy Mermaid blog and gallery, you can see a lot of photos of the construction process which are very interesting. You also will notice lots of shots of pizza cooking—clearly that brick oven gets plenty of use. What a cool, clever and creative tiny house. The interplay of colors, textures, and fun Bohemian design accents combine to make this a whimsical abode like no other!
