Tiny House for a Bigger Life by Liz and Tyler Cragg

Liz and Tyler Cragg weren’t ready to settle down, yet they wanted a place to call their own. Solution: they designed and built their own tiny house. And it’s a good thing too since they moved from Michigan to Oregon for a job opportunity before they even finished building!

Self Built Tiny House by Liz & Tyler Cragg

The cozy cottage-style tiny house was built on a custom 8′ x 20′ trailer (160 square feet) using structurally insulated panels (SIPs).

They used LP smartside lap siding, cedar shakes in the eves, and a metal roof. A large picture window and french doors allow for plenty of natural light.

Inside, they built elevated floors with trap doors, which allow for an extra 42 cubic feet of storage.

In the kitchen they used a Dickinson Marine Stove, which has two burners and an oven that can fit a 9″ x 13″ pan.

There are two lofts, one for their bedroom and the small one for reading or a guest, and hardwood floors throughout.

You can get more details about the tiny house and follow Liz and Tyler’s journey on their blog, Tiny House for a Bigger Life.
