Tiny Home in Oregon With Simplistic Design and Japanese Influences

There’s no room for debate, tiny homes are … tiny and extremely beautiful to live in. Unlike lavish homes that get the eye with their luxurious designs, these small houses have a story to tell and will impress you with their strong personality. Much like this 280 sq ft home in Oregon, which manages to get the best of both worlds.

While not built just for achieving a smaller environmental footprint and lower maintenance costs, this 10-foot by 20-foot, 15-foot tall tiny house is perfect for its owner, Chris Heininge, a builder and former Christian missionary. The whole design of the house is inspired by Heininge’s time spent in small but well-designed Japanese dwellings. And while it looks small, it has a spacious living room, a small kitchen with a small eat-in dining area, and a stunning 1,500-watt electrical fireplace tucked under the stairs.

The house is currently on sale for $70,000. Heininge has made sure it’s able to fit on a 20-foot flatbed trailer so he made sure he built it so that the loft’s walls and ceiling panels can be folded down.
