Echoing the luxury of a swanky Manhattan loft, the Gray Goose by California Tiny House, a finalist in the Tiny House of the Year and People's Choice categories, invites you to reconsider your views on compact living.

You're met with a stunning 10-foot collapsible tri-fold glass wall, seamlessly merging interior and exterior spaces, and a beautifully executed board-and-batten siding exterior in a striking Cali Blue.

Inside, vaulted stained-wood ceilings, marble countertops, and a host of built-in features make for a space that's as practical as it is stylish.

But what else sets this tiny house apart in the competition? Stay tuned to find out.

A Look Inside

As soon as you enter the Gray Goose, you're welcomed by a roomy, open layout that skillfully makes the most of every square inch inside the tiny home. The bright interior is a sight to behold with vaulted stained-wood ceilings adorned with iron beam hardware. A 10-foot collapsible tri-fold glass wall seamlessly merges the inside with the outside, creating a stunning illusion of space.

As you explore further, you'll find a kitchen that challenges the very notion of a tiny house kitchen. With marble countertops, a full-height tile backsplash, an induction range, and an integrated dining/workspace, it's both functional and aesthetically pleasing. 

Storage is cleverly incorporated into the design, with built-ins everywhere you look. The storage staircases, a signature feature of California Tiny House, provide easy access to the elevated gooseneck bedroom and guest room, which boast dormer-style windows for a generous influx of natural light.

Next, you'll encounter the built-in washer/dryer tucked away neatly, saving precious space without compromising on utility. The bathroom won't disappoint either, featuring a tile shower and custom furniture vanity, offering both style and practicality.

Stepping outside, there's additional storage and an open-air shower, enhancing the connection with nature. The exterior design is a tribute to Californian aesthetics, with Cali Blue board-and-batten siding and a unique, continuous roofing that also forms the metal siding.

In the Gray Goose, every square foot is a statement of innovative design, challenging and redefining the norms of tiny house living.

What Makes It Stand Out

The Gray Goose stands out as a masterpiece in the Tiny House of the Year and People's Choice categories, thanks to its revolutionary design that marries the indoors with the outdoors through a 10-foot collapsible tri-fold glass wall, creating an expansive feel in a compact space. Its luxurious interior defies tiny house expectations with high-end finishes like marble countertops and vaulted stained-wood ceilings, alongside smart storage solutions that ensure every inch is utilized effectively. Outside, the Cali Blue board-and-batten siding and unique roofing, complemented by outdoor storage and a shower, showcase an exceptional attention to detail and a seamless blend with nature, making it a shining example of innovation in tiny house living.
