Outdoor adventurers Robert and Samantha built their own tiny house over 14 months of weekends. Robert, an architectural designer and co-founder of the local Maker Space in Yakima, Washington, put his experience to good use as they created this simple yet functional living space.
To make the interior feel as spacious as possible they used large windows, a full light door, and light birch plywood throughout the house. The roof profile reduces unnecessary weight and construction costs where tall ceilings aren’t needed, yet still allows for 4′ of clearance in the bedroom loft.
The 204-square-foot tiny house is 24′ long and wrapped in reclaimed corrugated metal siding that used to be a barn roof. 24-square-feet of space is dedicated to the externally accessible “gear room” to hold all of their outdoor gear, which they consider essential tools to their health and happiness. In the picture below you can see all the gear that fits in their storage space!
