Living in a tiny home means you have to compromise on necessities, or so the notion goes. It’s true that you have to be economical with your floor space, but a compact dwelling is capable to provide all the amenities you’d find in a traditional house. This tiny house on wheels – home to a lovely couple in Seattle – is yet another example of how much a small space can encompass in itself and offer a comfortable life.
Equipped with a fully-stocked kitchen, a bathroom, a living room, a working station, and two lofts, this 26-foot-long trailer is home to Maddy and Alec and their cute dog, Loatsy. The tiny house has a quirky flair through its inexpensive and creative décor layout. Built by Tiny Mountain Houses, the tiny dwelling is located in the backyard of Alec’s parents’ house outside Seattle, where they pay $350 for renting the lot, including the utilities.
The double doors open to a warm and cozy living space with plenty of windows to let light and nature inside. The Interior is filled with repurposed décor and biophilic design. There is a work desk next to the entrance with space for a monitor and a laptop.
The bathroom lies past the workstation on one end of the house. It features a bathroom vanity with plenty of storage, a sink, a mirror with a medicine cabinet, a double-flush toilet, and a shower. There is a cabinet next to the vanity to store bathroom supplies and linens.

On the other side of the entrance lies the fully-functional kitchen. It has cabinets with butcher block countertops, a large farmhouse sink, a small dishwasher, a stove, an oven, a microwave, a pantry, and a small fridge. There is a cozy living space in the rear end of the house, which can be used as a guest room as well. It has an extendable sofa with plenty of storage underneath, a fireplace, a space for the dog, and artsy décor items.
The main loft can be reached from the kitchen via a staircase with a handrail. The stairs have storage to keep the trashcan and dog supplies. The loft has a full-size mattress, storage bins on an open shelf, a fish tank, and a small TV. As aforementioned, there are two lofts, one of which is located above the bathroom and is a designated crafting space. Accessed through a ladder, this loft is decorated with plenty of plants, a fish tank, and storage for crafting material.
The couple also installed a front deck outside the tiny home to extend the space. It has wooden slats making a boundary wall protecting a small bench and a couple of plants. The house is not off-grid as it gets its electricity from a 50 amp power pole, water is supplied from a hose from the parent’s house, and the water heater is powered by a propane tank.
