There are people who believe that the bigger the home is, the more beautiful it is compared to other homes. While it’s true that big houses are nice, there’s still a certain appeal and warmer aura that comes along with smaller homes. Here are 6 incredible tiny homes that will charm your heart once you see them.
Floating Tiny House
This floating 240-square-foot cabin is an off-the-grid summer escape for Maine couple Foy and Louisa Brown. Assembled onshore, a foundation of plastic floatation tubs, Styrofoam, and pontoons was then towed to sea, and the cottage was built above it, using mostly pine shiplap. Louisa carries water out daily via canoe for a tank that fills the shower and kitchen; at night, candles, oil lamps, and solar lights illuminate the home. Look inside Foy and Louisa’s floating home.
Rolling Luxury Cabin
At first glance, the 400-square-foot Wedge, designed by Wheelhaus, appears to be a tiny luxury cabin but it’s actually a mobile Park Model RV. Lofty 17-foot ceilings and a large sliding glass window at the front give an open feel to the rustic yet modern dwelling, which features a bedroom, bathroom, and combined kitchen/living room area. A 100-square-foot deck offers additional entertaining space. Look inside the Wedge.
Watch the falling snow or turning leaves from the comfort of the Escape Vista. And “comfort” isn’t an understatement — a flatscreen TV pops up from the foot of the bed for cozy movie nights. Look inside the Escape Vista.
The former carriage house for California estate now features stand-alone living quarters available on Airbnb. Just prepare yourself for the wild yellow interior. Look Inside the Quaint California Cottage.
With its 1920s cabins and vintage Boy Scout tents, Camp Wandawega, located in Elkhorn Wisconsin, evokes the set of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom. But the camp’s most charming feature is its three-level treehouse, built around a massive elm tree and outfitted with Pendleton blankets, tree swings, and Mason jar light fixtures.
Used as a common space, guests can read a book in the treehouse’s library on a rainy day or spend a lazy afternoon on the bottom-level hammock. Take a look inside Tom’s Treehouse.
Tiny House Hotel
One of six tiny houses each built on wheels and outfitted with a bathroom, kitchen, and sleeping loft at Caravan. The Tiny House Hotel in Portland, Oregon, the Skyline cabin is one of the newest additions to the hotel. The 160-square-foot structure is constructed of mostly salvaged materials and houses two queen beds. Look inside the Skyline.
