Tiny Pacific Houses' Mauna Kea home is a space where minimalism intersects with luxury, where the compact meets the expansive. At 28 feet, this tiny house isn't so tiny after all, as it boasts ample space and a design that maximizes every inch with thoughtful elegance. The house's side entry serves as the threshold into a home that expertly blends form and function.
The interior space is far from restrictive, presenting a warm, intimate atmosphere. High-quality materials and neutral tones invite relaxation, encouraging you to sink into the plush couch after a long day or entertain guests who'll quickly forget they're in a tiny house.
Adjacent to the living room, the kitchen unfolds, betraying the modest expectations you might have had for a tiny house kitchen. An abundance of cabinetry stretches along the walls, offering substantial storage for everything from cookware to groceries. The counters, extensive and beautifully finished, provide plenty of space to prepare meals, ensuring you never feel cramped while cooking.
In this kitchen, accepting an apartment-sized range, refrigerator, and even a dishwasher is effortless. The appliances are neatly integrated into the design, enhancing the space's functionality without detracting from its aesthetic appeal. The result is a kitchen that rivals those in many traditional homes, striking a perfect balance between practicality and style.
Above, dual large lofted bedrooms make a statement of their own. These spaces, accessible via an optional staircase, offer an abundance of sleeping or lounging room. They infuse the house with a sense of adventure, transforming a simple night's sleep into a cozy retreat into your private loft.
Descending back to the ground floor, the residential-sized bathroom continues to impress with its robust features and thoughtful design. A generous 48-inch shower takes center stage (with options for a 60-inch shower or tub shower), cocooned in sleek surfaces and top-quality fixtures. The bathroom also features a large linen cabinet, a sink with a base cabinet, and a toilet, all seamlessly integrated into the space.
The utility of this bathroom extends beyond the basics, offering room to easily accommodate a washer/dryer or an additional closet. It's another reminder that this house, though dubbed "tiny," has been designed with the utmost consideration for the comforts and conveniences of a full-sized home.
In terms of personalization, Mauna Kea goes the extra mile with a series of available upgrades to further enhance its aesthetic and functional appeal. Potential add-ons include slab black walnut countertops, a material that exudes rustic charm and warmth, transforming the kitchen into a space where culinary creativity thrives.
Moreover, you can choose to clad the exterior with Galvalume metal siding, an upgrade that not only guarantees durability but also adds a modern, industrial edge to the house's exterior. Finally, for those seeking additional storage, optional storage stairs provide a practical solution without compromising the home's sleek design.
Mauna Kea by Tiny Pacific Houses transcends the limitations often associated with tiny homes. It is a testament to the idea that living small doesn't mean sacrificing comfort, space, or luxury. Instead, it's about embracing a lifestyle that prioritizes quality over quantity, experience over excess, and, above all, the freedom to live beautifully wherever you choose.
Mauna Kea stunningly demonstrates how a carefully designed tiny home can deliver on all fronts—comfort, style, functionality, and even luxury. Its intelligent layout and potential for personal upgrades make it stand out, offering residents the ability to create a space truly reflective of their needs and aesthetic preferences. It promises a living experience that's not just about making do with less space, but thriving within it.
