Brian Barrett started his company, Sasquatch Custom Homes after his friend nearly died from a sudden heart condition. The two friends were inspired to build tiny homes for families wanting and needing a simpler lifestyle and one of their first models was the Barton Ranch, named after Brian’s friend and partner. The beautiful home is wrapped in corrugated metal on the exterior with wood trim and a collapsible awning. It measures 8’6” by 20’ with approximately 200 square feet inside.
A covered porch is off of the entrance giving you a dry place to enter and exit the home.
Inside, the home is charming and unique with wood siding, bead board, and multi-hued wood strips on the ceiling. Custom woodwork is found throughout the home and makes the tiny house truly one-of-a-kind.
The living room and kitchen are in the same area of the home with a long custom bench stretching down the wall across from the cabinets. Windows line the wall and let natural light in to make the home bright.
A dining table is at the end of the counter with room for two. Barstools tuck underneath and out of the way when not in use. It can also be used for work or folded flat against the wall turning it into an art piece.
The kitchen is compact but nicely equipped with custom cabinets and drawers that give tons of storage space thanks to unique dividers. The countertops are granite and you also have a cooktop and full-sized refrigerator.
The bathroom is across from the kitchen and features a composting toilet, sink and vanity, and a full-sized shower stall.
Custom storage drawers were mounted to the wall next to the toilet giving extra space for toiletries and adding to the rustic charm of the home.
Back in the main area, a long ladder gives you access to the sleeping loft with a queen-sized mattress and pipe barrier. A TV is mounted to the wall over the kitchen and can be seen from just about anywhere in the house.
There’s also a small loft over the entrance which can be used for storage.
We love this tiny house and the story behind it! It shows that great things can come from scary situations and big love can be found in tiny houses.
