There's a galley kitchen, full bathroom, small dining area, and a living room with propane fireplace. The house sits across the street from the water and was built as a vacation cottage, though the house is built to above-code standards for glazing and insulation.

The No. 1 Tiny House (Moschata)
Possibly the most downloaded tiny house plan in the world, the Moschata, or No. 1 Tiny House Plan, is a tiny home on wheels. With a modest 160 square feet it still enjoys a full working kitchen that includes a 24" x 60" refrigerator-freezer as well as a full complement of small appliances for cooking, baking, and more. It's the first tiny house to feature a porcelain flush toilet as well as a miniature shower and bathtub. There's even a small water saving sink attached to the toilet! Best of all is the extra wide footprint that permit a small entry porch, a nook large enough for a sleeper couch, a folding dining table for 2-3 people, as well as bookshelves, and an office corner for a computer and printer. Upstairs there are two lofts, a queen sized sleeping loft and an additional storage or guest loft.

No. 39 - The Ithaca (Under Construction 2016-2017)
The Ithaca is a modern two bedroom one bathroom design inspired by some Scandinavian studies I've been doing for THE small HOUSE CATALOG. The design uses a super-insulation strategy to reduces air-leakage and thermal bridging through the slab (R-20), walls (R-30) and ceiling (R-60). So far it works amazingly well. Project was started summer 2016 and is functionally complete as of February 2017. Exterior finishing work and interior trim work will take place into late Spring 2017. More photos will be shared and the plan can already be downloaded for free here.
