Our tiny house in West Asheville, North Carolina was completed in October. We shared a story the other day about the house but it only featured photos of the exterior. In this story we are going to give you a tour of the interior space and also share some more details about the design.
Tiny House Details
The total square footage of our tiny home is 484 square feet. Some people say that true tiny homes must be between 60 and 400 square feet. If it feels better to call it a small home that’s cool with us.
The bedroom and bathroom are both on the second floor.
The downstairs is an open floor plan living room and kitchen. Our concrete floors are partially covered with rugs for comfort but they can be picked up for easy sweeping. In addition there is a new gas stove and oven as well as a new refrigerator and new instantaneous gas water heater.
Our tiny house uses efficient electric heat. It has a brand new wall electric unit on both floors. We used foam insulation and new double paned windows to help keep energy costs down. These choices also help to insulate against outside noise. We also have a ceiling fan in the kitchen area/living room as well as one upstairs in the bedroom.
Now that you know some of the details, are you ready for a tour of our Asheville Tiny House Interior?
First Floor of the Tiny House in Asheville
The exterior door in the kitchen area opens up to a fenced-in side yard which is about 30 x 30 x 10. It allows you to have access to the outdoors as well as privacy.
Second Floor of the Tiny House in Asheville
Up here on the second floor is the bathroom and bedroom. The ceilings are vaulted up here and somehow makes the space feel light and airy.
This is an actual tiled shower. There is also a heat light in the bathroom which will help keep you toasty in the winter. To the left of the shower is the stacked washer and dryer as well as the toilet. If you hang a right out of the bathroom and come down the hallway you will enter the bedroom! Check out our cork floor! If laying a cork floor together doesn’t make you closer I don’t know what will, haha.Behind these doors is your closet space! This is where you will sleep. It’s a brand new queen size bed.There is a little night stand to your left. The lamp on there used to be on my desk. I think it looks better here now. The natural light that comes in your windows at different times of day is really lovely. The good thing is you can let it in or keep it out with the new blinds.
We built high ceilings on both floors to give the tiny house an open feeling. Many people have commented that it feels larger than 484 square feet.
