The Samurai Carpenter is a popular blog that features DIY videos with carpentry tips and projects. One major project that the owner took on himself was to build his own tiny house and document the process. He recently unveiled the complete video tour of the mostly finished project and it’s amazing to see what he’s built all by himself!
Video House tour:
The exterior of the house has cedar shingles with thick logs for porch posts and white trim that stands out against the red cedar. A deep porch wraps around two sides of the house and gives you plenty of room to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning from a rocking chair or to watch the sunset in the evening from your hammock.
Inside, the living room and kitchen are open to one another with a ladder extending down from the ceiling giving you access to the loft. The wood walls are painted white with the exposed beams left natural to add warmth. Beautiful elements feature his talent like the hand carved railing at the top of the loft and the construction of the ceiling rafters.
Up in the loft, there’s plenty of room for a full-sized bed and storage furniture. The tall ceiling gives you ample headroom and the wide windows let natural light and fresh air breeze through the room. Handmade light fixtures give a soft glow to the room after the sun goes down and were made from branches and an old-timey lantern.
The rest of the home is still under construction but there’s going to be a large and well-equipped bathroom and kitchen on the main floor. Another neat feature of the house is the Japanese Garden Gate that welcomes visitors and shows of the Samurai Carpenter’s skills even more with the intricate design.
We can’t wait to see the house when it’s completed and we’ll be sure to share it with you once he posts it! Be sure to check out his website for more videos and projects at http://samuraicarpenter.com/.
