Tiny houses are the most inspiring in terms of design because the less space you have to work with the more inventive and original you have to be. There’s a lot of thought that goes into designing a tiny house. Architects and designers are always coming up with great idea for how to optimize them. One of the latest projects in this sphere is a little house in Melbourne, Florida which is called Boehm. It was designed and built by studio Movable Roots.

Starting with the exterior, there’s quite a bit going on here. The house has a slightly raised floor which gives it this lightweight, floating vibe. It also has a slanted roof which is not just for the looks but also serves as practical purpose. The exterior walls feature a mix of vertical and horizontal siding for added texture and they’re painted in shades of grey. There’s also a big deck attached to the front of the house which is not something you usually see when it comes to tiny homes.
The entrance is marked by a pair of French doors that let in natural light and it leads straight into the living area. This is where you can find a couch raised on a storage platform with built-in drawers underneath. There’s also a slide-out dog bed that gives loyal companions a comfortable place to sit and sleep on. The kitchen is small but well-designed, with a full-size refrigerator, plenty of storage spaces and a washer/dryer which marks the transition into the bathroom.
Although the house only measures 265 square feet, somehow it has two bedrooms. The main one has a Murphy bed surrounded by storage cabinetry, a fold-down desk and two sliding barn doors. The guest bedroom is actually a loft space which is where the slanted roof comes into play. It’s small but nice and cozy and very convenient. Other that that, there’s also a bathroom with a walk-shower, also accessible through a sliding barn door. In the main area a couple of pull-out tables create a casual dining setup whenever needed. There’s also plenty of other clever features hidden throughout this tiny house just waiting to be discovered.
