This tiny greenhouse is going to change the lives of future residents.
When people make the dramatic, yet increasingly popular, switch to tiny house living, they’re not just choosing to live in a smaller place. They’re choosing adventure (if it’s a mobile home), the outdoors because having a tiny interior encourages residents to venture outside, and a life free from all the extra stuff we collect over the years. In the process of paring down on items, lots of people feel that they are being forced to give up some of their passions that require lots of supplies, such as art or extreme sports, and more people and builders are developing better designs to help accommodate these needs.
That’s exactly what the company Olive Nest Tiny Homes is doing with their designs and their latest release allows residents to continue with their passion for gardening and sustainability. Gardening can be difficult, especially for those living in apartments or small spaces that don’t allow for too many plants or have no access to sun. So it’s come as a surprise that the company was able to integrate a tiny greenhouse into their latest design, but it’s more than perfect for people already interested in sustainability, small carbon footprints, and rejecting consumerism.
The main part of the tiny home is a cozy 323-square-feet, but the design of it and the hidden storage makes it feel spacious and airy. With stairs instead of a ladder leading up to the lofty bedroom, there’s room for more storage without the hassle of climbing stairs just to get to the room. A kitchen bar table easily turns out and becomes a table for four, and the kitchen itself is equipped with a full-size gas range and fridge.
When making their way out to the greenhouse, which is 85-square-feet, residents have one more tiny area to get through: the adorable porch that attaches the main unit to the greenhouse. The porch is paneled with wood and even features a porch swing, where residents can enjoy the produce they’ve grown in their greenhouse.
Designs like this really showcase the amazing way that people are coming together to address the needs of people wanting to convert to a tiny house lifestyle while showing others that the community is adapting to accommodate more hobbies and passions. This design is currently listed on Tiny House Listings for $81,000. Watch the video below to see all the features and take a tiny tour.
