Living in a Compact 200 ft² Tiny House with Stunning Exterior & Interior Design

Zach & Leala designed this unique and beautiful 24-foot long tiny house and built it from paycheque to paycheque, as well as with gifts of time and materials from family and friends. Their dream tiny house has an efficient u-shaped kitchen, a living with a real and loads of storage, a bathroom with a clawfoot tub and a combo -dryer, a private loft sleeping space, an open-concept tv lounge loft, and a storage staircase that makes the bed accessible for their two dogs!

The 200 square foot tiny home on wheels is sitting on a 4-foot tall platform because it’s currently parked in a floodplain. The deck gives them loads of extra living space and it’s nicely shaded with a large sloping metal overhang.

The house is plugged onto the grid for electricity and water, and they also have propane for their stove and water heater. It cost them approximately $40,000 CAD to build the house, including the appliances but not including the deck and the overhang.

We hope you enjoyed meeting Zach & Leala and taking a tour of their lovely home!

Thanks for watching!

  1. Love your tiny home, it’s beautiful. We have build one also as a fun house for our grandkids with all kinds of left over wood that we had in our shed. It’s build barn style and is 320 sq ft. We are renting it some weeks in the Summer as our grand kids are living in Montreal and Burlington, Ontario and we are in the northern part of New Brunswick. With Covid, we did not rent in Summer 2020, hope we can this coming Summer. We cannot rent in colder season as it is not insulated. Enjoy your beautiful Tiny home, you might be able to see a short video of ours if you search for “The Golden Bed Tiny Home/La Mini Maison au Lit d’or” online. We have change the red door to a white steel door in the front and a few other things as we get new ideas. Good luck.

  2. Very nice home, do you mind sharing the house dimension for each section. The size looks perfect to me, i am planning to build one this size. Thanks so much

  3. Hey guys, why did you stop showing us metric conversions on the screen? (and currency as well?) I’m sure a lot of your audience is outside of the USA

  4. Awesome video, would love if you guys can do an update once the winter happens!! 😀 I really enjoy their space and it looks much bigger than it really is.
