Although it would probably be a little difficult to find a spot to park one in New York City, I never get tired of looking at tiny houses. And while a lot of the designs out there are quite similar, every once in a while I see something that's a little out of the ordinary. This tiny house has not one but two sleeping lofts, accessed by actual (albeit scary) staircases, and—my favorite part—a generously sized porch for enjoying the outdoors.

When you enter the house from the porch, the paired staircases, to the loft spaces on either side, make quite the statement. Both of the loft spaces look pretty generous (although probably not tall enough to stand up in).

The doors to the porch (accessed via the dining/living area) can be propped open, joining this little house with the outdoors, and though the house is certainly tiny, the kitchen is rather sizeable for a house on wheels, don't you think?

On the other side of the kitchen there's a bathroom with a laundry area, and on the other side of the bathroom (though a sliding door), there's a mysterious auxiliary room (the one directly above with the stepped shelves) that could, I suppose, be used as a bedroom. So, if you're keeping track, between the two lofts, the pull-out couch, and the bedroom, this little house could potentially sleep eight people, which is pretty impressive for a 310 square foot house. You could have a real party here, and invite all your friends to crash—good thing there's a full-sized fridge.

This little house is a custom design by the Mint Tiny House Company. You can see more of it here, and more of the company's work on their website.
