This Tiny House has been moved near a delightful lake in Minnesota, which symbolizes the family's decision to fill their lives with adventure, rather than stuff.
Tiny house owner Kim Kasl has nothing but positive things to say about her family's decision to move from a 2,000-square-feet home to a diminutive 267-square-feet abode.
This home, which accommodates a family of four, has all the amenities required to live a life devoted to simple pleasures and daily adventures, she says.
This Tiny House has been moved near a delightful lake in Minnesota, which symbolizes the family's decision to fill their lives with adventure, rather than stuff. Still, this is a remarkably roomy home that, she says, has given her family an opportunity to grow. “I love sharing that family can thrive in a Tiny House,” Kasl wrote in an online posting. “My pursuit is to normalize family-style minimalism in a culture where 'stuff-gluttony' is the accepted norm,” she writes. “My mission is to affirm for families on their journey … that once they remove the excess and unnecessary, they will find their family will be abundantly blessed.”
Here's a look at the stunning shelter that might be called Kasl's Little Castle.
It is remarkable how much interior space this home seems to have. Above the main room, the ceiling is very high, except underneath the two bedroom lofts and the catwalk that joins them together.
Here's a look at the opposite side of that same downstairs space.
This space under the ladder is the very definition of a nook (which Merriam-Webster calls a sheltered interior space). This particular nook also doubles as a dining area.
The bathroom sink and shower are both clever space-savers. The sink is tiny ... but it's two functions are to provide a little splash and to drain water away, so it gets the job done.
The base of this shower had a previous life as a wine barrel. But how much dancing do you do in a shower? Not that much, really. So this one will do just fine.
Let's take a look upstairs, shall we?
The master bedroom.
Now, let's take this catwalk to get to the childrens' room.
This adorable loft room with two beds is a treat for friends who are visiting the kids, says Kasl.
Many would agree that a family of four, 267-square-feet house or not, requires a large fridge and a double-basin sink in the kitchen.
As a parting shot, what's missing? It turns out, this space next to the refrigerator is reserved for a combination washer-dryer. Sometimes, the luxuries of life require a bit of waiting.
