Extra Small Tiny House Built for a Traveling Minimalist – Full Tour

Tour this extra small tiny house! It was built by Seth Reidy from Nelson Tiny Houses in BC, Canada for a travelling, bird-watching minimalist friend who wanted a simple home on wheels. This tiny home is just 16-feet long, including the 2-foot bump out for the kitchen counter. It has open concept shelving, a small workspace with storage below, a ladder up to the sleeping loft, and a spacious living room with a wide bench for sitting, napping, and hanging out, that also has loads of storage space beneath it. As an extra space to sit, there are hooks for a hammock that can be hung across the living room. The bathroom will have a shower and toilet but hadn’t been completed at the time of our visit.

For Seth, it was fun to build such a tiny house because it’s reminiscent of the size of tiny we used to see at the beginning of the tiny house movement. He has built many beautiful tiny houses of all different sizes and you can check them out on his website, Instagram and YouTube, linked below.

    I'm an extreme claustrophobic and most lofts are an anathema to me but this loft's windows give so much light and a sense of space that I could almost imagine myself sleeping there. I also love the porch entrance – makes it look more like a little house

    Genius in artistic and functional simplicity. Really like the shelving around the future bath space. This is a real true tiny house. Sorry to see the movement morphed into mini monstrosities.Sorry,but I'm starting to voice my disappointment in what our current culture deems as necessities.

    This is the most cluttered living space I've ever seen from a "minimalist" lol. TONS of books plus all of the crap piled into the sleeping loft, he could probably do some more paring down before being dubbed an "extreme minimalist".

    That storage around the bathroom is awesome. Having the high celling and lots of windows really opens up the place, Great place to just get away.

    Beautiful spot. I would like one exactly like that as a cottage. Not for a couple. I wonder with all the books and stuff on shelves how he did manage for travelling with it. But it seems it is a permanent location sort of . Also I would have a visit of the toilet. Very good views of the surrounding area. Great idea to feed the birds just in front of the window. And the window in front of the counter is very appreciated.

    i like this video because its real. rubbermaid totes for storage etc. this is supposed to be a cheap option for people. cheap housing. my partner and I are designing our own tiny house and it can be discouraging to watch videos where its like "you too can live in a tiny house pinterest board for 100,000$$!!!!!"
