When you first walk into the , there's a 2-level coat closet and a functional storage area for things you need when coming in and out of the house (keys, dog towels, water bottles, etc.). The kitchen itself has loads of counter space, it has an induction cooktop and a toaster oven, stacked bar fridges (one of which is actually a freezer!), food storage below the counter, and open shelving for dishes above.

  1. Ngl there were a lot of things that annoyed me while watching this video, many of them irrational, but the one big annoyance that I feel is totally justified is the “our cat goes outside and also pees/poops outside” part. So many tiny homeowners do this and it drives me insane.

  2. This guy has a career designing tiny homes if he wants it.

    Nerdy kids, hang in there, you are the cool people among adults, you win in the end!

  3. Jake,
    As a retired electrician that also wrote code for production motor controls, I applaud your house controls setup.
    I also think your kitchen counter top is beautiful. I have been thinking about replacing the kitchen counter top in my house with a wood of some kind. I like your idea of the lamination process. That would allow it to be a one piece design sense there is a corner to deal with. Kiva I am sure you have had a large input on the inside as well. If I were designing one the change I would make is put my sleeping quarters on the first level. At my age of 74 yo it is not easy climbing steps or a ladder.
    Keep up the good work.
