“Weehouse” is the trade name which Alchemy Architects have come up with to describe their line of tiny houses. One which is particularly “wee” is this 440-square-foot jewel in Marfa, Texas.
The house looks bigger than it is because it has a large awning over its driveway as well as a sizable shaded patio. Notice that there is actually a shed located next to the driveway which is detached from the main structure. Like the house itself, the shed is very “wee.”
There are lots of windows here which look out over the gorgeous scrubland of West Texas. Notice the stepped foundation. It raises the house up over the landscape to provide a more commanding view.
There is so much outdoor living space here! If I had a lovely patio like this, I would want to spend all my time outside!
Notice how the awning over the patio is raised up above the level of the roof, pushing toward the sky. This brings in light and air, and helps the patio feel lofty and open like its expansive surroundings.
The entire house was transported to the site in a near-complete state. All that had to be installed after it was placed were the decks, outdoor canopies, and utility hookups.
This photo shows off both the house and the landscape in all of their glory.
This tiny house has all the privacy it needs thanks to the huge amount of acreage surrounding it. So there is no need to completely close off the bathroom. The tub is situated next to a glass door. Imagine how relaxing it would be to enjoy a nice long soak with such a beautiful view at hand!
The same wood which is used for the walls is used for the floor. This creates a seamless transition between the two, making the entire house seem like one solid unit.
