This tiny home is one of the Designer Cottages Dungan and his team designed, and it lit up my radar rather randomly. I was gathering info about lovely places to retire when Monteagle, Tennessee popped up.

Can you imagine living in a home under 500 square feet?

Tiny Living Minutiae

I must admit I am fascinated by what rarely gets addressed…tiny house minutiae.

What about living under the same tiny roof with someone who sleepwalks or snores? What if tiny impulsive toddlers decide to leap from a sleeping loft and land on the cooktop?

What I do know is humans are masters of adaptation. So I suppose, once you’re all in, with time, you adapt to the down side of downsized.

Folks who choose small house living are often experiential types who prefer spending their time traveling and adventuring more than home maintenance or long work hours to pay the mortgage.

    It’s lovely, but where do you eat? Three stools at the kitchen counter doesn’t cut it in such a high-end design. This would be a deal-breaker for me.

    I could live in a tiny house. I’m not sure under what circumstances I would need to but it’s a very livable house. In a warmer climate, you could eat outside for most dinners. It has a comfy bed, place to shower, a workable kitchen and a living area. What more does one Really need? We live on a 36’ boat for four months (mid May – mid September) of the year and do quite fine. It’s a lovely relaxing time on the water. But, I do enjoy my home at the end of the cruise and miss my garden.

      Living on a boat sounds incredible – what an adventure you are on! I can imagine longing for land and appreciating home even that much more. Thanks for sharing these thoughts, friend. xox

    This tiny house is the most practical and livable tiny house I’ve seen, particularly with the bedroom being on the same level as the rest of the house. I spent time in a motorhome as a kid and I can attest to the fact that loft bedrooms are a pain. You have to climb up to get into them and once in them you cannot stand upright or necessarily even sit upright. You can only crawl or roll around to move in the space and making the bed is not a fun or easy activity to do everyday. I also liked the low country style architecture of this design and that it included a laundry area, full bathtub and shower combo, and a small desk area. Kudos to the company that designed this tiny house. Thanks for posting about this design.

      I thought the same thing as far as this floor plan with the bedroom at the back! I hope folks are taking the time to try out tiny living before jumping into it because all of the climbing and rubbing elbows is not for everyone. Some of us just don’t want that top bunk. 🙂 Jeffrey Dungan is legendary as an architect and totally delivered the goods on this project!

    I really like the floor plan and all of the large windows. The only thing I would want to change is to swap out the window in the bedroom for a door. I feel safer with a back exit so as not to be trapped by a kitchen fire when in the back of the house. It would be nice to walk out onto a private back deck from the bedroom as well.

      Not sure what you mean by correlate, but you’re seeing the correct interiors that match up with the exteriors as stated.

    We have been looking to downsize for a while but could never find the right floor plan. This is it! Well laid out, bright and airy. Just add another bedroom and this is perfect. Great inspiration. Awesome!!!

      I like it. It’s cute. However, I saw several things that could be changed, from design to decor, to add much needed storage and microwave.

    Yes, I can imagine because it is a very considered design and look cozy outside but I don’t like the interior which doesn’t match to the house itself.
