When we heard about this woman living in only 117 square feet with a medium-sized dog and still finds room to entertain guests we knew we had to see inside the house and learn from her ways. Once inside, it was easy to see that the key to her success was organization!
Video House Tour
The cute house is 8’ wide and was originally built in California and then transported all the way to Orlando when the owner decided to move closer to her parents.
The front porch doubles as an outdoor kitchen when the house gets too hot or she can cook inside in the compact kitchen just inside the door. There are a mini-fridge and a large stainless steel sink as well as plenty of cabinets for storage.
The space that was originally met for a bedroom downstairs has been organized into a large walk-in closet which is extremely organized for maximum efficiency. Rods were added to the back and clever hangers are used to increase the space for clothes. She even has room for 20 pairs of shoes!
A small bathroom is on the left side of the house and is fully functional with a shower stall that has an adjustable pressure faucet to conserve water.
The main living area has stacked Ikea stools that double as seating when the fold-out table is being used. She can even seat up to three people at the table! When she wants to watch a movie, she forms a bench out of the stools and uses the extra stool for a TV stand.
Her bedroom is in the loft and is reached by a ladder that was used on a ship. A full-sized mattress is set up although the space is big enough for a queen-sized bed. A beautiful stained glass window adds pretty character to the cozy spot.
Across from the loft is another smaller storage loft as well as a ceiling fan to keep the house cool.
Outside is the best part of the house, the incredible view of a beautiful lake! She takes advantage of her million-dollar view by having her own outdoor garden and spending time in the yard with her beloved dog.
