Sherloak Home, built by Acorn Tiny Homes, is a stunning example of how a tiny home can offer a premium living experience without sacrificing style or functionality. This 372 sqft home is a modern take on retro, with beautiful white oak wall paneling and custom cabinetry. It's clear that Acorn Tiny Homes is not afraid to embrace the whimsical nature of their clients, as evidenced by the unique features that make Sherloak Home stand out from other tiny homes on the market.
The homeowner and co-designer of this tiny home is a member of the Canadian Forces, who is often required to transfer bases every few years. By going tiny, he has been able to avoid rent traps and the hassle of buying and selling real estate every few years. Instead, when posted to a new base, he can simply hook up his home to his truck and take it with him.
Walking through the doors of Sherloak Home, you are immediately struck by the feeling of warmth and intimacy that the space exudes. It's almost as if you are stepping into a treehouse, with the solid oak and rift-sawn white oak walls creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere. The home is designed for a single individual, but it still manages to pack a lot into a very compact footprint, giving room to grow.
One of the standout features of Sherloak Home is the use of raw materials, such as solid oak and cherry woodgrain steel, which give the home a rustic yet modern feel. The exterior is finished with Shou Sugi wood, which is a traditional Japanese technique of burning and brushing wood to create a beautiful, weather-resistant finish. The built-in 3-season porch with skylights is another unique feature that adds both functionality and charm to the home.
Inside, the home is characterized by a combination of modern and contemporary details that create a unique aesthetic and top functionality. The use of oak and black interior palettes creates a visual connection between the living spaces while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere. There is also ample storage throughout the home, with deep closet storage and storage everywhere you look.
Other features that make Sherloak Home stand out include the hidden bookshelf door, the loft net, and the over 25 sqft of butcher block countertop space, including bar-height dining. The 5' shower with large format tiles and hideaway toilet make the bathroom feel spacious, despite its compact size. The tankless hot water heater and 420 L freshwater storage tanks ensure that the homeowner has all the modern amenities they need, even in a tiny home.
In conclusion, Sherloak Home is a beautiful and functional tiny home that offers a premium living experience in a compact package. Acorn Tiny Homes has truly outdone themselves with the design and construction of this stunning home, which is perfect for young professionals or anyone looking for a unique and cozy living space.
