Tiny houses can truly run the gamut of style. From prefab basic to completely eclectic to sharp and modern, these homes aren’t letting a lack of square footage put a damper on their style. This tiny home, Honey on the Rock, took the lack of space and a request to use a family heirloom and made a home that is next level beautiful.

The team at Carpenter Owl, a Bloomington, Indiana based firm, built the home around a request to incorporate a family’s heirloom whiskey still. They described the vacation home as their “most ambitious build to date.” The house cost $85,000 but comes with a ton of handmade touches and surprising elements.

Featured on a recent episode of HGTV/DIY Network show Tiny House Big Living, the house measures 22 feet x 8.5 feet (187 square feet total) and not only has a sleeping loft, but an outside upper deck with a vintage soaking tub. The deck is accessible through an outdoor spiral staircase or a hidden door found behind a painting in the sleeping loft. All of the light fixtures were hand cut.

The family’s whiskey still is hidden under a copper topped table. The team placed a wood stove on top for maximum rustic charm. The exterior is walnut with cedar trim and the roof was up-cycled from older structures.
