Tiny Idahomes creates some phenomenal tiny house designs, and the newest one has knocked our socks off. The company itself has called it “absolutely spectacular,” and as far as I am concerned, they are almost being modest. It’s that impressive!
The house was custom-built for a customer named Beth, who the builders says “knew what she wanted when she walked through our doors.”
The house measures 28 feet long, and the awning you see is fully electric and measures 8 feet. The exterior is painted a fetching shade of blue, with the natural wood accenting, the red door and the white trim defining forms within the rectangle.
While you can appreciate that there are many windows, I think you’ll be surprised by just how much wall space they keep open to natural sunlight and views of the outdoors. Let’s take a look inside.
There isn’t a single surface inside the home which doesn’t seem to be drenched with sunlight. The feeling of openness inside this tiny house is incredible. Wherever you chose to reside in this house, you would feel like you were at one with the environment outside.
In the kitchen, large cabinets with a minimalist design offer storage while a long butcher block countertop gives you space to prepare meals. The high faucet over the sink facilitates easy washing of your dishes in the small space. On the right, you see the four-burner stove top and the full-size oven.
There is a large loft on either end of the house. On the left, a flight of stairs with cabinets underneath leads to one of these upstairs spaces.
One of my favorite elements of the house in these photos is the blue tile backsplash in the kitchen. With the house photographed the way it is with the bright blue sky outside the windows, the backsplash almost seems to blend in with the sky outside, further enhancing the illusion that the outdoors and indoors are sharing the same space. It is a clever way to enhance the sense of openness on walls were there is not room for additional windows.
Obviously, this effect would be reduced depending on the weather and the scenery outside. But I imagine that it would be ideal for a sunny climate where blue skies are the norm.
If you were wondering where the fridge was hiding, you can see that it is on the other side of the ladder which leads up to the second loft in the kitchen adjacent to the stove. Beyond is the bathroom, and to our immediate right, you can see some additional shelves and which you could use for just about anything.
There is a custom cover for the sink made of the same thick wood as the butcher block countertop. So, when you cover the sink, you have almost a seamless surface on which to work, which can be very helpful in a tiny kitchen like this one.
The bathroom, like the rest of the house, appears to be luxuriously spacious and airy in design and ambience. The right-hand wall is dominated by a custom “vanity” which essentially takes up the entire wall. The dark teal color is a vivid contrast with the white walls. I love this design, because there is a ton of counter space and lots of storage in the cabinets and built-in shelves above the backsplash. There are two sinks, so two people could get ready for the day simultaneously.
Across from that, there is the glass-enclosed shower, which also is enough to make my jaw drop. It could just be the angle of the shot, but it looks huge! Apparently it measures 36.”
The other feature in the bathroom I am head over heels for is the backsplash with its cool wavy pattern and different shades of blue. An aquatic decorative theme would work beautifully throughout this house.
Let’s check our two lofts, starting with the bedroom loft. This is one of those lofts which has a low ceiling, but feels spacious thanks to how open it is to the rest of the house, with just a headboard/shelf behind it. The slight upward curvature of the ceiling as well as a skylight above the bed also open up the space.
Here is the other loft across the way. It is big enough to serve as a second seating area (I actually would probably replace that shelf with an entertainment center, if it were my home).
You know that the bathroom is located underneath one of the two lofts. What is beneath the second? It turns out to be my favorite part of the entire house. On the way there, you can check out the laundry machine.
The final remaining room is currently set up to serve as a sitting room. It feels like it is all windows! Below the huge windows to either side are two long shelves which could hold a ton of books. This would make a perfect reading room. It also would make an excellent study. Alternately, you could put a bed in here and have it serve as a downstairs bedroom.
