Living Large in a TINY House

By
Real Estate Agent with United Real Estate TX #0552717

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.

Tiny House Kitchen

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.

I am fascinated by tiny houses and think they would work perfectly for many folks. Not me, LOL, you understand, but many other people.

Susan Haughton Not for me, either. My first home was 1100 sq ft and that was small enough for me.
