A common complaint with tiny houses is that they tend to contribute just a cramped loft space to rest one’s head. The Indigo tiny house by South Carolina’s Driftwood Homes USA is far additional generous, and contributes a standard loft bedroom and a full-size ground floor bedroom that can double up as a home office. In doing so yet, it makes worthwhile sacrifices in living space.

Based on a double axle 24 ft (7.3 m) custom trailer and comprising a total floorspace of 280 sq ft (26 sq m) that include loft, the Indigo has a amusing appearing exterior clad in stained cedar shake and vertical tongue and groove siding, and is topped by a metal roof. The interior layout is unlike many other tiny homes, yet whether or not that’s a great thing can sizeablely depend on how much you value a sizeable bedroom and home office.

On entering the home, a quite snug combined living, dining and kitchen area is announced. This tiny space consists of a couch that pulls out into a bed, a folding dining table, and a kitchenette. This comes with a refrigerator, four-burner stove, and custom cabinetry.

As you can see above, it is a real squeeze and there isn’t all that much storage space space moreover the kitchen cabinets either. It does appear great yet, with its stainless steel appliances and reclaimed barn wood finish.

A long hallway leads to a bathroom with tiled shower, sink, and plumbed-in toilet (the home requires a grid hookup for water and electricity), accessed via sliding reclaimed barn door. At the end of the hallway is another reclaimed barn door that leads to the ground floor master bedroom.

The master bedroom appears quite sizeable and light-filled for a tiny house. In addition, the bed installed is a Murphy-style, so it folds upward to reveal a desk, meaning it can be utilized as a home office too.

Aside of this bedroom, plus the sofa bed, a storage space-style staircase leads to a secondary loft bedroom, so the Indigo may sleep up to six folks. But maybe it is most suited as a vacation home for a family who isn’t going to spend too much time indoors.

Heating and cooling for the home is provided by a Mini Split HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning unit), while hot water comes of a tankless water heater.

The Indigo is already up for sale at US$74,500.
