The Otter Den

The view from the porch of our house, looking up at the guest house.

I can guarantee a nicely built tiny home, but I can't guarantee our view! 

Yes, a railing will go around the porch shortly.

I'm 6'2", and I have roughly five inches to spare under the loft. The walls are 9 feet, giving us an extra foot of headroom over a traditional loft. I love the extra room!

We could certainly make more room for storage, but we wanted to have an open feel, as it is not used for full-time living...but it could be easily designed to do so.

The tin wall to the left will eventually have a door to an outside shower. Since the toilet is not permanently in place, it can be moved against the other wall.

 A few storage shelves from scrap red oak in the bathroom.

Whoops, took this pic before the faucets were installed!

Some built in shelves next to the vanity.

A 52" ceiling fan moves plenty of air around the small space.

We used 1" plumbing pipe to serve as a guardrail and handrails in the loft. Just to the left, you can see the LG A/C unit. I'm fairly tall, but don't feel cramped in this loft. That's a queen sized mattress.

The little electric faux wood stove gives off plenty of heat for our climate. I direct wired a lantern through some matching plumbing pipe to keep the theme going throughout the house. It operates with a simple lamp twist switch at the bottom of the lantern.
