Tiny House Aesthetic Inspiration

Hi beautiful people!

Today I created a mood board using Pinterest for how we (my hubby and myself) aspire the design aesthetic in our tiny house to look so everyone can get a much better idea of what we are going for. I wanted to point out obviously these spaces are bigger and these photos aren’t an exact representation of what our tiny home will be. However, these photos totally give you the vibe we are going for in our place.

Check out the photos by scrolling through the box below!

On a side note, this is the part of our tiny house build without question I’m looking forward to the most. We definitely aren’t there yet. But, the visionary in me can’t wait to make this little space our dream place. I designed our last apartment we shared together and had so much fun doing it! But, when renting a space there can be limits to what changes you can make. Whereas now, we essentially have no limits and get to hand pick everything that goes into our home. I’m beyond thrilled for the design challenge. It started with creating a floor plan (it’s completely original) and will continue with interior decorating. It is our first home we will share together and I’m happy for all the memories that will be made there.

What you guys think of the vibe? Any suggestions for our home? We love and appreciate the input! Our philosophy is… more minds = more ideas = better results.

Our Wedding Day

DSC_0092

Hi all ♥

I have finally gotten around to creating an organized online album with photos from our magical wedding day that we can continue to look back on whenever we are feeling nostalgic. We got married on August, 26th, 2017 and it truly was the best day ever for us both! We have been together for many years and it was beyond special to commit to forever officially to each other in front of all our loved ones. It was the most heart fluttering day filled with so many smiles, laughs, and happy tears that we’re captured so beautifully as you will see.

We also wanted to mention this celebration would not have been possible without the huge support network of family and friends that put in countless hours of hard work before, during, and after to make our day unforgettable.  We are so blessed with the awesome people surrounding us that love us unconditionally. Thank you all times a million from the bottom of our hearts for doing so much for us. You know who you are ♥

Tiny House Design Details

Hello loves!

First of all, I wanted emphasize that these beautiful designs I created on paper would or could not have been come to life in digital format without the hard work of my incredibly talented hubby, Aaron! He spent a good chunk of creating them on Paint so we could share them with you all and I’m so grateful he did. Thanks babe!

Anyway, I’m beyond excited to finally share what our future home is going to look like! These designs aren’t an exact to scale representation and some details are missing. However, they do give a good general idea of what our home will look like inside and out upon completion. Once we complete the build we will add more details, exact measurements & specifications to this blog post for those who are interested. The details we do have available to share now are listed below.

Specifications

Square Feet (including loft): 277 square feet

Width: 8 foot, 6 inches

Length: 26 feet

Height (at tallest point, & at lowest point of roof): 14 feet ; 11 feet

(We will add more specifications once the build is complete, hang tight!)

Tiny House Exterior

**The black lines on the exterior of the house are for texture purposes only, we will be using white corrugated metal siding therefore on our finished home there will be no black lines**

TINY HOUSE FLOOR PLAN 1
Tiny House Floor Plan

The Process:

I spent a good solid two months designing the floor plan and the exterior of the house to fit my ideal specifications and style. I will be upfront by mentioning I am not the kinda girl who settles… lol. I had very specific requirements in mind for this space and I designed, and redesigned the plans more times than I’d like to admit until I got the result I wanted. Hence, the reason it took a two months to complete but I couldn’t be any happier so no regrets there.

Our floor plan for our Tiny House is completely original as well, there is not a Tiny House with a floor plan like it as far as I’m aware. We decided to create our own custom floor plan instead of using an existing floor plan for several reasons. Most of the floor plans we found we’re beautiful but had interiors more similar to a travel trailer and less similar to a home. In addition, the layouts we’re awkward to me with interesting placements of each area and I wanted good Feng Shui. Which, I didn’t find a floor plan that fit my vision, so I decided to take the task on myself. Don’t get me wrong I am not knocking full-time trailer living because it has been done, stunningly I will add. Just search Instagram with the hashtag #rvremodel and you will see incredible remodels with total Feng Shui. But when it came to finding a floor plan for a tiny house, I couldn’t find one that fit our desires. This is where a list of requirements came from. We wanted…

  • Dedicated living space complete with tall ceilings, a coffee table and a couch
  • Good size kitchen with enough cupboard space
  • Room for a Washer/Dryer (still on the fence about actually putting one in… but we wanted the space just in case)
  • A place to hang our clothes (We refused to torture ourselves by folding clothes in a cubby on a daily basis, lol)
  • AND, lastly we didn’t want to have to crawl up to our loft to get to bed

This list may seem reasonable to most people who don’t understand what designing a tiny space truly means but I can promise you in a tiny space accomplishing all these necessities was difficult. Not impossible, but difficult. However, if you know me at all you know that I am way to damn stubborn to settle for less so I found a way to make it work.

Well, we’ve come to the end of this blog post.

Thank you so much for reading this post all the way through, it means the world to me.  Let me know in the comments below what you all think of our design for our future home. Any recommendation, questions or comments? Let us know below! We’d love to hear it all.

xxoxo, Alexa
