This one-of-a-kind Scandinavian-inspired model is a testament to minimalist elegance and functional design, melding the best of both custom and signature series worlds. Crafted meticulously over two years, the Journey is more than just a home; it's a fine work of art.
The Journey's exterior skin, a mix of lap siding, shingles, and thermally modified wood, is as resilient as it is attractive. With a moisture barrier powered by Zip System®'s rigid panel Weather Resistant Barrier, this home is designed to weather the storm, standing steadfast against the elements. The charcoal PVC and standing seam metal roofing add not just protection, but also a touch of quiet elegance.
Upon stepping inside, you’re greeted by walls lined with birch plywood, held together by carefully crafted battens. Each seam whispers of superior craftsmanship. The clear polyurethane sealer accentuates the natural beauty of the wood, while the birch 1x4 interior trim adds a touch of Scandinavian charm. Windows made of black fiberglass with a wood interior let in ample natural light, illuminating the understated beauty of this tiny home.
Underfoot, commercial-grade sheet vinyl flooring in a warm wood pattern offers both comfort and durability. The visual continuity it offers seamlessly merges the different zones of this compact yet capacious abode.
The kitchen is a dream come true for culinary enthusiasts. Cabinets from IKEA’s KUNGSBACKA and ASKERSUND series are a combination of contemporary design and recycled sensibility. The modern cabinet pulls, finished in brushed gold, gleam subtly under the lights. The black solid surface countertops add a dramatic contrast to the serene, light-filled space. A high-end energy-efficient suite of stainless finish appliances, including a Fisher & Paykel 13 cubic foot refrigerator and an induction cooktop, sit ready to assist in whipping up your favorite meals. A sleek, black fireclay under-mount sink pairs perfectly with the brushed gold faucet, adding a touch of refined luxury to your daily routine.
The bathroom offers a sanctuary of relaxation. A wall-mounted porcelain sink sits above a high gloss white vanity cabinet, offering a minimalist and clean look. The brushed gold faucet mirrors those found in the kitchen, creating a sense of harmony and balance throughout the home.
Doors in this tiny home, one an interior custom cabinet swing door and another an exterior wood-clad fiberglass door, demonstrate the thoughtful consideration given to each design choice. No element in the Journey is without purpose or careful thought.
Designed to comfortably fit a queen-sized bed, the loft bedroom offers a cozy retreat. Storage in the window sill cabinet optimizes space, keeping clutter at bay and ensuring the home remains a peaceful haven.
