What Counts as a Large Tiny House? Take a Tour of This 389sqft Home

by Simplify

When most people think of tiny houses, they think of teeny tiny houses. But there are plenty of singles and families out there living in a large tiny house that really makes you think about how much space you actually need in a home.

While living in a small tiny house may not initially be your idea of fun, you might think again after seeing what a big tiny house can actually offer.

Tiny home bedroom with a view

Sara, from Harmony Resorts, shares a sneak peak of a rather long tiny house—34ft long and 8ft wide to be exact—that has a two-tone exterior, a sloped butterfly roof, and massive windows situated throughout.

With just 389sqft total, this tiny home feels significantly larger inside than it actually is. Plus, its clever design makes it beautiful and functional at the very same time.

One of the most impressive features found in this home—unlike many others—is a smart tiny house bedroom design that’s set in a surprisingly spacious loft area.

The tiny house bedroom ideas you may want to borrow from this home include the raised, wood-paneled ceiling, large windows on either side of the bed, and the recessed light fixtures that brighten up the space.

The large tiny house model Sara shares also has a large living area with 10ft ceilings, tons of natural light, and an incredible amount of storage.

Plus, the home features breakfast bar seating, a wide galley kitchen with whitewashed tongue and groove pine cabinets and beautiful dark wood counters, a walk-through full bathroom, and laundry area, and a main floor bedroom with a queen-size bedroom and a floor-to-ceiling closet.

    To be a tiny home, it has to be 399 sq ft or less, so I guess this would qualify as a "big" tiny home.
