Not Your Typical Surf Shack

 

This tiny home was designed and built by interior designer Carissa, and her boyfriend Noel, who has background in construction. Using some reclaimed materials and a lot of translucent polycarbonate materials, they put together this modern surf-themed house on wheels. The interior of the house is quite a sight to see, with space as a limited resource, the couple had to design everything to maximize efficiency. The main living area has a sitting area with a custom bamboo sofa, and upholstered storage ottomans that doubles as table surfaces. The kitchen has a stove, a backsplash made from recycled glass tiles, and a Plyboo counter. It also has an island with an all-in-one washer and a pull-out counter. The floating stairs are suspended by sturdy wires, needing less materials to build. The steps lead up to the sleeping loft. Two cross ventilating windows and a skylight make this area of the house feel more open and well-lit. Hidden behind some polycarbonate partitions is the clothes closet. For tiny homes, their bathroom is comparatively larger than most. The couple has decided to splurge on a bathtub, rather than a single shower. Copper piping was used for the shower rod, and some porthole windows were added to give it a more nautical feel. Tiny homes can vary in really interesting ways, and this modern surf house is a pretty good example of DIY homes built real well. Take a look at these photos and tell us what you think on our Facebook Page!

 

That’s the situation that Carissa, an interior designer, and boyfriend Noel, who has a background in construction, found themselves in when creating their first home together, a 260-square-foot, surfer-themed modern tiny home that uses some reclaimed materials — and lots of translucent polycarbonate material — to good effect.
