At 24 feet this tiny house is unique at every turn. Log cedar siding and faux stone panels give the outside that upscale cabin look. An exterior shed gives not only extra storage space, but also hides any unsightly exterior equipment giving it a uniform appearance.
Unlike most rooftop decks, Lyfesaver’s deck is on the side as well as atop the house. The deck offers plenty of space for two people and a table, or in the owner’s case, a telescope. Giving this house an “observation deck”.
While this house can certainly be built with a wood frame and OSB sheathing, this time we chose metal framing with weatherproofed styrofoam sheathing. The metal frame allows for a stronger and lighter house, while the styrofoam not only reduces weight, but adds a higher insulation value to the walls.
The loft is large enough for a king size bed with awning style windows on each side. The living room offers a full sized couch and space for a workstation.
The stairs to the loft hide the refrigerator, washer/dryer combo as well as other storage sections. The kitchen is large enough to accommodate full size appliances while keeping plenty of room to move about and cabinet space for food prep.
With this model the owner decided to forgo a typical bathroom with a shower stall and made the entire bathroom a “wet room” with a center drain, corner shower-head and mirror as well as a composting toilet.
