If you’ve been searching for a tiny house to call your own, you may want to check out the listing for this lovely rustic tiny house in Vancouver, WA. The house doesn’t have a name, but owner Gwendolyn writes that it is “suitable for a small family.” In fact, she and her spouse lived in the tiny home with their two children for a period of three delightful years.
The tiny house measures 300 square feet in all. The exterior is painted in an olive drab color with what looks like a darker green for the trim. What really catches the eye is the rusted, corrugated metal, providing a rustic touch and adding some interest to what would otherwise be a fairly generic exterior.
The family’s youngest child slept in this crib in the bathroom. Obviously the next owner of the home will have more space in the bathroom (unless they choose to follow suit).
Here you can view the cozy loft. The light wood used for the ceiling contrasts with the mid-toned wood used for the floor and walls. I’m not sure if that’s a natural wood grain color or if the ceiling was painted, but either way, it helps bring definition to the space.
One of the major highlights of the house is the kitchen. The wood in here is just beautiful. It creates such a warm, homey environment. The kitchen looks to be surprisingly spacious, yet everything remains in easy reach. With lots of storage available, it would be easy and fun to plan and prepare food in this charming space. Included with the home are a propane stove and oven as well as an RV fridge.
This I assume is the same loft we were looking at previously, but with the bed removed so you can get a better look at the size of the space.
Here is another photo of the kitchen sink in the bathroom which shows you the storage located underneath. What I really like here are the horizontal lines of the wood.
The stairs which lead up to the loft have cabinets located underneath them. This is a typical storage feature you see in almost all tiny homes now, but it’s pretty much essential if you want to maximize the use of the space.
I like the handrail here, which is a good safety feature, especially in a home with small children. The rail is thin and sits close to the wall so that it doesn’t intrude on the space too much. Far too many tiny houses seem to forego railings altogether with the steps.
There is a washing machine included in the tiny house.
The washing machine is located in the bathroom next to the tub/shower.
The shower itself is a simple affair, but it serves its purpose. The bathroom includes a compost toilet as well.
The main living area is utterly delightful. The sofa can double as a bed, and the entire space underneath it is occupied with large storage bins. The soft colors here make this a pleasant and welcoming part of the home.
There is a second smaller loft which can serve as an additional sleeping space.
Like what you see? The house has everything it needs to be functional; it just needs to be plugged in and hooked up. It is available for $50,000. You can view the listing or purchase the house here.
