Richardson Architects designed this cheerful 260 square foot tiny home in Northern California. The charming space was constructed with wear-resistant and non-corrosive building materials and is the ideal place to stay for family and friends. With its wraparound covered porch, stunning location, and country architectural touches, you’ll want to take a look inside this charming space.
The tiny house structure on the Pt. Reyes peninsula in Northern California was built to accommodate a big gathering of children for a yearly family summer camp. The tiny house structure is nestled amongst a cluster of farm buildings and is designed to blend in seamlessly with the pastoral dairy farm’s surroundings. The adjoining tent platform with sleeping accommodations has access to the tiny house bathhouse, which provides nice facilities. The small house design concept incorporates a playful, whimsical, and utilitarian personality that complements the rural farm setting. Galvanized sheet metal, MDO board, painted plywood, sealed board and batt siding, and painted plywood and MDO board were utilized as non-corrosive and wear-resistant building materials.
The façade of the little house is painted whitewashed for a fresh, clean, and bright appearance. And the red trim and red metal roof blend in well with the other barn structures on the property, adding just enough color to the tiny house structure. The wraparound terrace wraps halfway around the little house and makes for an ideal hangout spot, with a large chalkboard for the kids to doodle on. When you glance inside, it’s hard to imagine that this little house structure is only 260 square feet because it appears to be much larger. The bedroom in this tiny house design is quite huge, and the kitchen, like the bedroom, shows that the tiny house design was carefully thought out. The colors are bright and happy throughout, with yellows, reds, blues, and white. It feels like such a welcoming place for both children and adults, fun and lively while remaining trendy and modern. On the patio of the house, the table with the lemonade is exactly what you’d imagine doing on the lovely outside deck of the tiny house building.
It’s remarkable how far careful planning can go in the design of a little dwelling. When you plan ahead of time, you can make your room operate efficiently for you and your family, even if you have limited space. The wraparound terrace at this bathhouse in Northern California does exactly that, extending the interior room outside and providing a place to hang out with family and friends, party, and enjoy the wonderful view. Another thing that contributes to the success of this tiny house design is its location. Although not everyone has the luxury of building on such a beautiful piece of land, a natural location can go a long way toward making your tiny house area function. The clean, uncluttered style and details used in this tiny house construction are another reason why it works so well. White paint and lots of windows open up the tiny house design and make it feel more open, as well as providing the perfect backdrop for splashes of color.
This Tiny House is designed and built by Richardson Pribus Architects.
