When a Saltbox is a Tiny Box

Dungan’s wee classic saltbox “lean-to” design maximizes space and beauty and is uncompromising in its quality–something rather remarkable when it comes to tiny home design. Thoughtful architectural design elements and high-end finishes (such as Summit Appliances® and Ply Gem® aluminum clad wood windows) make this custom teeny dream a true coup for folks who appreciate high quality.

    Love this tiny saltbox! Not exactly what I think of when I see the term saltbox, but this is a great design. I really like the ceilings and the charm of the interior too. It may be a bit cozy for two but perfect for one!

      Right? It’s sort of a box that slopes upward so there you go! I’m not cut out for tiny on a permanent basis, but I like the idea of vacationing in one!

    The tiny Salt Box is a charming little place. If a house, with that square footage, allowed me to live by and look at the water every day, perhaps it could work. The school bus house…with a family? As a mother, I would not play along. We downsized to 1800 sq ft from over 3000 upon retirement. I love my custom built home! It is perfect for two, with two extra bedrooms for guests, while not being overly large for two to live comfortably. For some reason, I am fascinated with tiny homes.
    Had a lovely day, out on the boat, celebrating a friend’s 60th birthday. The sun is shining, the winds calm and the wine is plenty. We are truly blessed!

      That’s what I was thinking too – if that saltbox is anywhere near Oahu’s North Shore – I’m in. So many of us love tiny homes even if they aren’t a good fit for us! Ha! Your day sounds lovely, and as the thunder rolls here (oy!), it is good to hear of sunny skies!
