Check out this 400-square-foot cabin with an innovative and private interior multi-functional room

One of the biggest drawbacks from downsizing from a larger, multi-room home to less square footage is the perceived lack of privacy that comes with living tiny. With many designs featuring wide open lofts and nothing more than a partition to separate each area you'd better be comfortable with your roommate because you'll be in close proximity to each other almost constantly.
This Easterbrook Cabin from West Coast Homes changes that notion. Not only is it larger than many tiny homes at 400 square feet, there is an innovative interior room that actually features walls! Privacy is no longer a depleted resource when living in this beautiful, stationary home.

Here's a look at that neat little room with the view from the doorway. Notice the pocket doors that can close to create a cozy dining room, a private office, or just a calm place to read, relax, and recharge. The loft railings and high ceilings create a focal point that really adds depth to the great room.
This home's lakeside location really took advantage of the stimulating natural backdrop that no art deco wall painting could even begin to emulate. The Easterbrook Cabin features double swinging doors that make the outside deck and by proxy the glorious lake atmosphere almost an extension of the living room.

...which is ideal for when the bed is folded down to create a guest bedroom that features downstairs privacy.
A glorious stone countertop and contrasting wood doors really adds to the lakehouse aura.
This upstairs loft is incredibly roomy with tall ceilings that allow for a 'crouch-free' zone.
Many tiny home owners like the mobility of  house on wheels. The stationary models do allow for some pretty intricate deck and walkway designs that really add to the overall aesthetics of the building.
