Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc along the Gulf Coast and left many families homeless in its path. Slowly, many of those families have returned to their hometowns to rebuild. One of those families was featured on Tiny House Nation with their brand new 576 square foot tiny house. The home was built on stilts to ensure that flood waters are never again an issue for the family.
Inside, the tiny house features cool coastal colors with tall ceilings and lots of natural light streaming through the large windows and sliding glass doors. The living room is spacious with room for a full-sized couch and furniture.
The home’s kitchen is also expansive with two walls full of cabinets and all the appliances you could ask for including a dishwasher! The white cabinets are topped with butcher block countertops and open shelving is above for quick access to plates.
The bedroom and office areas were combined into one room but clever furniture design allowed for the room to still feel open. The bed is tucked into a corner with large storage drawers built into the frame eliminating the need for a dresser.
A large bathroom features a massive walk-in shower with tiled walls and floors and a partial glass panel. There’s also a flushable toilet and custom sink vanity with a medicine cabinet above.
The outdoor area was a must-have for this family and so a fire pit was placed on a gravel area with custom seating around as well as raised flower beds for gardening.
We love to see families getting a new beginning and we really love it when that new beginning is in a tiny house!
