Since 2011, Bill and Sue Thomas of Maryland, who have more than 30 years of combined expertise in the custom home industry, have been creating unique tiny homes, or “hobs,” for their customers. One of their favorite floorplans, the Walden small house, is available for purchase on their website. The 400 square foot house was inspired by the Henry David Thoreau book of the same name, which praised simplicity. It is therefore not surprising that the house is understated yet elegant, and you can purchase the plans for just $225.
With wood siding, hardwood floors, and red accents, the interior of the house is just as rustic as the exterior. One of the house’s two doorways leads immediately into the living and dining area, which has space for a full-sized table and seats.
The living area has a window arrangement with a lovely stained-glass window on top and is just close to the dining table. There is room for a couch or numerous guest chairs.
There is lots of room to set up this area anyway your family likes it!
White painted walls, bright red cabinets, and gray counters that match the dining table decorate the kitchen. A mini-fridge, a sink, and space for small appliances are available. The kitchen has a sliding glass door next to it that lets in a ton of natural light and provides a quick escape to the backyard.
Old buckets were transformed into inventive lights, which were then fastened to the loft’s above frame.
A queen-size bed is tucked snugly into an alcove in one of the bedrooms on the main floor. Over the head of the bed, there is a shelf for storage, and lights set on the wall provide reading light. The large window serves more purposes than aesthetics. To let in some fresh air, it can be opened.
Behind the kitchen, next to the bedroom, is the bathroom, which is surprisingly roomy for such a little home. Above the sink is a bespoke vanity built of mixed woods, complete with a mirror and light. Red metal encloses a 33 shower, and next to the shower, with shelves above it, is a space big enough for a washing machine.
With just a few small adjustments, you may create this house exactly what you want in a rustic home or retreat by purchasing the plans.
