With 10′ tall glass walls on three sides, the main room is as immersed in the natural environment as a conditioned indoor space can be. The writer only has to look up to watch passing wildlife and enjoy unimpeded views of the surrounding landscape. The fourth wall has bookshelves on one side and a concealed Murphy bed on the other, with a doorway in between leading into the service area. On the left is a compact galley kitchen with a fridge and several feet of counterspace, while to the right is the bathroom with shower.” – Small House Bliss

I don’t know much about this tiny building from Spokane, Washington. It’s featured on the Real Carriage Doors website – for the doors.
Great tiny design though. I especially like the hip roof extension under the gable and over the entry, plus the shed dormer on the side. It appears to be about 14′ by 18′ or slightly smaller.

Here’s an opportunity to spend the night in a Tumbleweed Tiny House.
“Slightly modifying a Tumbleweed Fencl plan, the house was built on an 18 foot flatbed trailer and boasts roughly 100 square feet on the main floor, as well as a 60 square foot loft with a full-sized bed. A tiny 2’ x 2’ porch faces the Puget Sound, covering the entrance to a beautiful, cedar door. The great room maximizes headroom with vaulted ceilings, and the main sleeping loft is built over the kitchen, closet and bathroom, with a ceiling clearance of 6’2”. Two skylights and 11 windows bring ample light into the house, so you will not feel confined, but rather liberated in a cozy, efficient and well designed house! A window seat is built in for cozying up with a blanket and good book while watching birds play in the garden. Maximum occupancy is two people. No pets and no smoking please.”
