This custom-built tiny house is big on interior design

Washington-based company Handcrafted Movement is making quite the name for itself with custom-made tiny homes. The company’s latest micro dwelling — called the Coastal Craftsman — is so gorgeously designed that you’ll forget it’s only a mere 238-square-foot space. The energy-efficient tiny home has a stunning interior design that is not only open and airy; it is also handcrafted with various reclaimed materials.

The home, which is built onto a transportable trailer, is clad in a cream-colored board and batten siding with Pacific Cedar accents, complimented with a dark metal rooftop. A lovely glass-panel door leads into the living space, which has distressed oak flooring that contrasts nicely with the white walls. Throughout the home, the interior design gives off a relaxed beach vibe, enhanced with an abundance of natural light.

The furnishings were all strategically custom-built to provide personal touches to the home without adding clutter. A chaise lounge-style sofa bed is at the heart of the living area, providing a comfy place to read or watch television. There’s an electric fireplace to keep warm in the winter months, and a vintage desk and chair sit in a small nook under a window.

The tiny kitchen has plenty of shelving and cupboards. The space is compact, but efficient and includes a dining table made out of Oregon-sourced, salvaged walnut wood. In the corner of the kitchen, stairs lead up to the sleeping loft, which has enough space for a king-size bed.

Matt Impola, the founder of Handcrafted Movement, framed the walls himself and even inserted custom-made roof trusses to add dimension to the tiny home design. The craftsmanship of the project is incredibly impressive.

“I built much of the tiny home components—the exterior shutters, kitchen cabinets, bathroom doors, stairs, electric fireplace, television cabinet, coffee counter, dining table, etc. — from scratch, and had two production assistants help me assemble and finish all them,” Impola said. “I’ve seen too many tiny homes with minuscule couches that will not realistically be comfortable for very long, so it’s important for me to be able to fit full-size furniture in every tiny home I build.”

In addition to its amazing design, the home was also built with various energy-efficient features such as rock-based Roxul insulation, 10 large energy-star windows, LED lighting, an instant water heater, and a propane oven and cooker. Thanks to these features, the home’s monthly energy costs are incredibly low — an estimated $12 to $25 per month.

Airstream launches its first-ever fiberglass camper for under $50K

 
VIEW SLIDESHOW

The makers of the iconic “silver bullet” travel trailer just launched their highly anticipated Nest travel trailer – and it’s unlike any Airstreamyou’ve ever seen before. Designed as a home away from home, the Nest is big on comfort and amenities but also resilient and easy to tow — making it the ideal adventure camper. Airstream’s newest trailer also marks the company’s first departure from aluminum for the world of lightweight fiberglass – and it’s available starting at $45,000.

Nest offers more than just winning good looks. Created by designer Robert Johans, who was also involved in Airstream’s in-house development, Nest blends form and function in an aerodynamic semi-monocoque structure. Ski goggles inspired the shape of the wide and slightly rounded front windshield, while five additional tempered tinted windows, a skylight, and a vertical window on the doorway come together to create a nearly panoramic view and flood the interior with natural light.

Space-saving techniques create a sense of roominess inside the 16-foot, 3,400-pound Nest, which manages to pack a surprising number of amenities into its sleek and minimalist interior. When the rear doorway is opened, the eye is immediately drawn to the cozy living area and views beyond the front windshield. The bathroom and storage immediately flank the entrance, followed by a galley kitchen with a two-burner stove, sink, fridge, and microwave, and finally by the primary living space in the back.

Customers can choose between two floor plans: one with a U-shaped dinette that converts into a queen bed, and another that features a permanent queen bed with a plush Tuft & Needle mattress. “There’s really nothing else like it,” said Airstream President & CEO Bob Wheeler. “Nest acknowledges Airstream’s lasting legacy, while anticipating a new potential for outdoor adventure.” Airstream’s Nest is priced from $45,000 MSRP and will be sent to Airstream dealers nationwide this month.
