Dallas's Earth Day 2016 event included a tiny house village with 10 homes. I got to experience the smallest of the homes, 78 square feet, first hand, and meet the owner, B.A. Norrgard (in the photo below).
B.A. left a paralegal position to become a tiny house advocate, traveling across the country and living in the house for the past two years. When I lived back east, I knew a few people who rented apartments in New York City. I thought those places were small! This house is miniscule.
When you enter the front (and only) door, the kitchen is on the left. It's got a bamboo sink and a small counter area, with refrigerator and other cooking appliances below. A small pantry also serves as shoe storage, to the left of the sink in the photo above.
Behind the front door, on the left, is the bath area. BA's got a composting toilet and a shower, all in one "wet" area.
The "great room" has storage of all sorts and a built in table/desk (B.A. is sitting on it in the photo above). The "bedroom" is a loft area over the front of the house, complete with skylight and stained glass window.
There is a closet, but you have to move the ladder used to get to the loft to be able to open it. And, it's - wait for it ... - tiny!
These pictures really don't do the house justice. Check out B.A.'s video to get a better feel for the space.
