It took the designer over 700 hours to make, almost entirely from scratch.
We’ve seen a lot of impressive tiny houses in our time, but this one is extra special. Almost every square inch of its 250 square feet was hand-crafted by one man, designer Matt Impola.
Matt created the home as part of the Handcrafted Movement project, which was started in an effort to “play a part in the rebirth of American ingenuity and quality in manufacturing,” he says on his website. It took him a total of 700 hours to make over a 10-month period. (The tiny house was his “weekend project,” since he also has a full-time job.)
As soon as you walk inside the tiny home, a tidy and warm escape full of country character greets you. Natural light swims throughout the space, and farmhouse-inspired wood accents (most of which are made from salvaged/reclaimed wood) give it a rustic yet modern touch.
The home includes a 3-foot deep closet, a mini library, wall shelves and a pull-out couch with underneath storage. There’s also a built-in wooden dining table/desk area, and a ceramic sink that sits on top of concealed garbage and recycling receptacles. Next, a stove is surrounded by wooden countertops, perfect for whipping up breakfast or layering a lunchtime sandwich. The full kitchen also includes a hood fan, a two-door fridge, and extra storage built into the side of the staircase.
The two-toned stairs with wooden treads lead to a bedroom loft. Tucked in the corner of the home is a full-size bath with standing shower, built-in medicine cabinet, toilet,and cabinets.
Multi-use furniture is absolutely key when you’re living in a tiny home. A sofa that converts into a bed is a great way to save space without having to skimp on design or luxury. Other great space-saving options are desks or tables that fold up and down, Murphy beds, and modular furniture.
Believe it or not, the 250-square-foot home has a full-size bathroom.
In one corner of the home, you’ll find the beautiful, well-thought-out full-size bathroom. It features a standing shower, vanity with medicine cabinet, and flushing toilet. Matthew also made sure to include additional cabinets below for extra storage.
Not enough room for a dresser or closet? This home improvised with hidden storage at the top of the stairs.
The house is fully portable—it even has a mini garden station outside—and is currently sitting in Battle Ground, WA, with a price tag of $69,950.
Can we move in now?!
