Nessa Elessar, a professional YouTuber and gamer from Germany has built a tiny house as a suitable way to follow her passion for gaming and desire to have a minimalist home. It took her two and a half years to complete the DIY project to the tune of €35,000 (approx. $40,000). The tiny house features a dedicated space for a computer setup, main-floor bedroom, spacious kitchen, loft and a bathroom complete with shower and composting toilet.
The house measures 9 x 2.5 meters and the highest point is 4 meters; all the dimensions align with the legal trailer construction code in Germany. Weight restriction of 23.5 tons was the most concerning factor that affected the overall build. The exterior design is kept simple and friendly with a minimalist color selection and a one-sided slanted roof. The complete white interiors keep the living space fresh and modern.
Just next to the main door is the highlight of the tiny house – an amazing computer station with lighting equipment and cameras for live-streaming. There is even a fold-out green background screen that makes the space akin a makeshift studio. She has designed the tiny house to function as a work-space but also as a full-time home.
Reclaimed objects have been used thoroughly in tiny house, including repurposed US-army wardrobe, vintage mirror, and a washbasin in the bathroom. Nessa’s tiny house has everything that she needs to follow her desired lifestyle. She has been living in the tiny house for the last two weeks.
