    This is my idea of a “tiny house!” I agree that it needs a good wood stove and washer/dryer and since it’s hard for me to stand, a small/medium size dishwasher would be a BIG plus. [I think my dog would have difficulty navigating the spiral stairs. Does anyone else have dogs and a spiral staircase?] This house would be the “tiny house” of my dreams. The layout of the house is wonderful. A REAL kitchen, a living area with space for a sofa AND a chair, lots of light, a porch and the ‘energy’ from the photos seems fantastic. The house seems incredible!!

    I would love to know how much it was to construct something like this! if you didn’t mind sharing that information! I’ve always wanted to build a tiny house with this same lay out.

    How do i purchase the floor plans for this house? How much is it per sq. ft to build? Do you have suggestion of designer/builder in the Seattle area that specializes in the tiny house contruction?… or maybe, how to find a class to learn how to build/design mostly on my own *with perhaps a consultant)?

    Just beautiful. I have been moving around so much, disabled vet, I work for the VA, on the road a lot, so I have to rent and it’s so expensive. Last place I was in, I was evacuated because of flooding. Long story short, hasn’t been easy, would love to build something like this. Haven’t seen anything like it in MN. Are there foundations that will help with some of the starting costs. I am familiar with grant writing, I used to work for a non profit before working for the VA. Thank you for taking the time, all you tiny home lovers.

    Wow! Great floor plan! The only things that are missing – a fireplace and a W/D hookup. Otherwise, perfect!

    Absolutely adore this house! It’s cold here in the winter, I’d add a wood stove between the French doors and scooch the table into the kitchen, looks like there’s plenty of room for it. The kitchen is my favorite part. Thank you for sharing!

    Love, love, love this “Tiny Home” …if the floor plan is 336 sq feet, what is the total square footage with the second floor added? The pitch must be pretty high to get such a nice bedroom in it with lots of head room. I’d sure love to own it!

    First of all I’d like to say that I follow pretty much anything that’s “Tiny House” and this one is one of the very best layouts I’ve ever seen. The county atmosphere adds a lot to it, but even without that, it’s a wonderful plan. Since I have a disability, I’d love to use the living room as my spacious bedroom with a nice sitting area, and the upstairs for guests….even my grandchildren would love the loft! It’s simply awesome and I’m so thankful you shared the beautiful slideshow with it….I just love it!!

    I have to say that you have done a great job with this barn renovation, it is spectacular I can not believe how much room there seems to be on such a small footprint.I have some land near Penticton B.C and I would like to recreate this design could you tell me the roof slope and height of wall plus did you give yourself a full 8 feet of headroom under the loft or is is lower ? Thank you for sharing this with us and if I ever do find myself in Waco Texas I would love to see it ! Cheers Dave

    Hi Kevin, love the renovated barn. I am in the process of having a small (600 sf) house built. Do you have any supplier information for the staircase? Would really appreciate it. Also, is the floor reclaimed wood? Very nice place. Worm and welcoming.
    Thanks,
    Monika

    Kevin, how high are the ceilings at the highest point? 14ft-$16ft I’m guessing. You really need to market this guest home as a tiny home to sell. It would be one of the best designed (not decorated) and laid out plans I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen hundreds of tiny home designs. Could add a 500-600 and 600-750 sizes.

    Would love to see this place when I’m in Waco for my Sourdough class on January 30, 2016. Would that be possible? Thanks

    Came across this on Pinterest and saw it was in waco. I LIVE IN WACO! What a coincidence. Would love to see this gem in person.

    This layout reminds me of a cabin I used to rent in the Columbia River Gorge. It was hands-down the favorite place I have ever lived (and I have lived in some big, fancy homes). I always dreamed, however, of building my own version as a barn restoration using reclaimed wood instead of the tiles they had in that cabin. I literally gasped as I opened the slideshow – this is how it would look! I am more determined than ever to build my own one day soon. I LOVE IT.

      Thank you for your comments on the Dry Creek guest house. If ever you are in Texas, please come for a visit.

      I own that building and always enjoy staying in it.

      May your dreams come true!

        How do we get in touch or get the address if we’d like to come by and admire the place? My mom and I are taking a trip to Waco soon and I’d love to see this place.
