Everyone loves a good tiny house. The teeny-weeny abodes are becoming ever more popular due to the fact that they take up little space, use fewer resources, and are cheaper to maintain. In some cases, they can even be moved from place to place with relative ease. And let’s not forget one of the most important reasons: they’re so darn cute!
Of course, living in a tiny house has its drawbacks. One of the main issues is the sleeping loft. The sleeping area in many tiny homes consists of a very low space, often only accessible via ladder. This is inconvenient, and some even find the low ceiling of the sleeping area and the ladder worrisome because of potential injury.
But there are ways around that, if you’re willing to think outside the box a little.
One way to do that? Don’t use a box-shaped house!
That’s how Ken, a builder and employee at MitchCraft, started when he created a home of his own. He beganwith a gooseneck trailer, which includes a smaller, elevated compartment that fits over the top of the vehicle pulling it. It affords a tiny house a bit more space, and eliminates the need to squish the sleeping area into a narrow loft.
What’s more, Ken’s design didn’t just stop with the gooseneck trailer. He also created a curved ceiling that gives the sense of more open space, and then painted the whole thing in a soothing, minty teal for a breezy, beach-like vibe that just invites you to kick off your shoes and relax, and is a bit calmer than the fashionable teal color we’ve been seeing all over the place.
