Most people dreamed of living in a home that is as big as a mansion with all the complete things they want like a home theatre, a home library, a pool and many others. It would really be nice to live in a house which gives you everything you want but it would be nicer to live in a palace that could offer you a comfortable place to live in with the simple things you need. This is what Chris and Mallisa had in mind when they decided to make a Tiny Tack House for themselves.
The Tiny Tack House was designed by Malissa based on their needs. Since Chris is a photographer and Malissa a 3D artist, they both needed a computer to work on. Hence, they had a great room and work space in one. In the same area is a sleeper bench with a storage area below it to allow some guests to sleepover. The couple’s cats were also considered in the design creating a cat potty area below a cabinet. For their hot water needs, they had a tankless water heater located outside the house near the faucets of the kitchen area.
This tiny home is built on top of a trailer so that it can be mobile. The couple opted to use natural materials for their home. Tongue and groove pine woods were the main materials for the interior sidings and walling. In between the double walling, sheep wool was used to provide insulation and warmth especially during winter. The floor for the living and kitchen area were mounted with engineered bamboo flooring while the bathroom’s floor was made of vinyl. Cathedral ceilings were used to provide good ventilation inside the house paired with its windows and skylights. Even the ceiling were stuffed with wool but were only provide with screen to avoid it from falling off. The entire home was really intelligently designed and is perfectly suited to the couple’s needs. Now let us take a look at some images of the Tiny Tack House.
The house certainly looks interesting! The mere fact that it was built on a trailer is already an amazing thing but when you get to see the interior, you will even be more amazed on how they smartly designed it. It is also sustainable since it used natural materials and even a solar panel for their electrical supply. There are also smart storage areas in the house which makes it well kept since all of the stuff goes into drawers, cabinets and many other storage spaces.
For Chris and Malissa, this is their perfect retreat since both of them can live and work here. Indeed, nothing would be more perfect than a home designed for your needs.
