Walden Tiny House with Dormers

I wanted to show you one of Tumbleweed's latest builds which is a Walden tiny house with dormers. Originally Jay Shafer who's now at Four Lights created this design and now you've got an option to make the sleeping loft feel more spacious with the dormers option.

I can appreciate the aesthetics of a tiny house without dormers and a clean high pitch roof. But when it comes to sleeping in the loft, I'd really appreciate the extra little bit of space because I think it makes all the difference.

Sure the clean high pitch roofs without the dormers might be more cozy, but I'll still take the extra windows and space. Especially if you ever plan on sharing the loft with anyone, right?

So let me give you a quick tour of one of Tumbleweed's latest designs & builds...

Let's go inside and let me go ahead and take you straight into the sleeping loft which is upstairs so you can see just what kind of extra space the dormers can give you up there. It's mostly stretching and head space plus the extra windows and ventilation you get so there are lots of benefits I think.

So here's how the Walden tiny house design works... You've obviously got that tiny 7' x 2'7" front porch that keeps you covered in the rain while you unlock your door. :)

Once you're inside you can basically see it all. You're in the great room which is the living and dining area of the cabin. Towards the left is your closet, storage, shelves and tiny hallway which leads you to the kitchen and bathroom.

Directly above the kitchen and bath is of course the upstairs sleeping loft with the dormers. That's it! Take a look...

The cool part about Tumbleweed is that you can buy any of their designs and build it out yourself and save tons of money on the labor costs. Or you can always hand the plans over to a contractor to build it for you (or at least help you out with the most challenging areas like electric and plumbing).
