A Tiny/Small House Tour - Living Large in a Small Space

My Tiny/Small house tour. Living large in a small space.

   I purchased 2 lofted barn cabin shells a few years ago. My dad and I finished off the insides of both cabins in a little over a few months time.  

The main cabin is 14' x 40' and a smaller guest cabin is 10' x 16'.  The main cabin sits on a slab and features a large master bedroom, full size bath, cozy kitchen with full sized appliances and a guest loft above the kitchen. There is also a large storage area above the bath and utility room. The cabins were framed with 2 x 4's so we added 2 x 2's on all for the exterior walls and ceiling rafters to fur them out to get R-19 insulation in. The only difference other than size between the 2 cabins is that the small guest cabin does not have running water or a bathroom.

I have been a big follower of the Tiny/Small house movement and enjoyed watching and reading about other person's personal stories. Now it is time to share my story. I can say without a doubt that living small is the way to go. It may not be for everyone, but it's definitely for me.
