Although this tiny house measures in at a mere 260 square feet, it sure doesn’t look like it. Thanks to smart design that involves multiple space-saving features, this compact build feels like an airy cottage—plus the wheels. 

Created by the Hawaii-based design team Paradise Tiny Homes, this tiny house was built with practicality in mind. Upon walking into the space, you’ll notice the high ceilings and the curved roof that gives enough space for the upstairs loft. A full-sized bed comfortably sits up top, accessed by a wooden staircase that double as cabinets for optimal storage. 

Thanks to the staircase’s space-saving storage, a full-sized fridge can fit inside the nook located next to it. Plenty of counter space and room for appliances make for a fully functioning kitchen, not to mention the window area in the kitchen that opens up into an indoor-outdoor bar. 

The space-saving features continue into the bathroom, too, where the glass shower is positioned over the tongue of the trailer that the home is built on.  

In addition to functionality, the builders also thought about how to maximize the amount of natural light that can seep into the space. A circular window on the far end of the tiny house lets an abundant amount of light in, not to mention the large windows on either side of it. Tiny windows follow the staircase as it goes up to the second floor, and the skylight allows for natural light to make its way into the bathroom. 

Just when you thought it couldn’t get better, it does with sustainability in mind: the wooden details exposed in the interior is created from local mango trees.

So, there you have it folks! A tiny house that’s spacious, bright, and sustainable—the perfect trifecta.
