Inside A Tiny House That Actually Has Room For Guests!!!
There are two (!!) bedrooms in a very tidy 184 square feet.
One downside (or upside, depending how you look at it) of downsizing to a tiny house is no longer hosting overnight guests. There's simply no room for extra bodies when you're already scrambling to fit the kitchen sink.
Meet the answer to your entertaining woes: the Hikari Box Tiny House. Made by the small space experts Shelter Wise, the home makes the most of its 184 square feet by lofting a master and guest bedroom. The "large" suite can accommodate a luxuriously-wide queen bed, and the second loft can fit a twin mattress (or a cozy reading nook if you're so inclined).
The extra bedroom doesn't mean less storage space, however. A set of Japanese "tansu" stairs also function as a large closet — not to mention a perfectly-sized cabinet for wine, like in this model.
If you're still not sold on the tiny house lifestyle, what the Hikari may lack in space it makes up for in windows. Its name, which means "light-filled" in Japanese, comes from the 14 windows (including a skylight over each bedroom). Star-gazing from your queen-sized bed doesn't sound half-bad, does it?
