What started out as a casual conversation over dinner about building a tiny house ended up becoming reality for a young couple from Cottonwood, Utah. Patrick and Sarah Romero started working on this project in the summer of 2014 and three months later their new tiny house was completed.
There’s a few key features which make this tiny house special and the skylights are one of them
It’s a 192 square ft. (only 18 square meters) structure which they now rent out. They chose a breezy, beach-inspired design for it, with a white exterior, eye-catching blue doors and storm shutters for the windows. They even added a deck later on. The roof has a series of skylights which bring abundant natural light inside, making this little house seem bigger and more airy.
The covered was added later on and was still a work in progress at this pointThe windows have black storm shutters which add a bit of depth to the exterior of the houseThe house is used for vacation rentals and enjoys lovely viewsThe interior is small but airy thanks to the high ceiling and all the skylights installed on itThe kitchen is small but includes the essentials without looking cluttered
The interior of this tiny house is what really impressed us. It has an unusual layout which placed the kitchen at the center of the floor plan. The kitchen is compact and has a stove with oven, a stainless steel sink, a microwave oven and space for the essentials inside the white cabinet below the sink as well as the one up at the top and the one on the opposite wall. Behind the kitchen is the bathroom which has a curved shower in the corner and a bay window which makes room for a vanity with a sink and open storage underneath.
