Seeing the solutions designers and DIY-ers come up with to get the most space out of a tiny house is truly amazing. But so far none have come up with quite as many ingenious space-saving features as the ones in the tiny home recently completed by Ana White and her husband Jacob in Alaska.
The home was built atop a 24-foot-long (7.3 m) trailer and due to clever multipurpose furniture and design elements, it even has 100 sq ft (9 sq m) of open space without sacrificing any of the comforts one wants from a home. The home also features large windows, which makes it appear even more spacious.
The most unique part of the design has to be the bed, which can be stored under the ceiling above the sitting area when not in use. The raising and lowering of the bed can be done by the press of a button, and it even has a middle position, to allow guests to sleep over on the sofa if needed. The raising mechanism is made up of parts that can be found at any hardware store, and cost just $500 to build. The TV is mounted on the wall in this area and can be watched either from bed or from the sofa. (more…)
