“An adventure in living simply.” This is the motto of the Hall family’s blog ‘Tiny Hall House,’ and they are certainly living out those words to the fullest. The family of three lives in just 160-sq-ft of space.
Living in Massachusetts, the Hall family decided to downsize — big time. Mom, dad, and their 18-year-old son chose to live the tiny home lifestyle and move into just 160-square-feet of space; an amount of space that’s smaller than many people’s bedrooms.
The home itself is the epitome of simplicity and the Hall’s seem to have perfected tiny home living. So, how does the family of three pull it off? Let’s take a tour. Oh, and did we mention that they also have a dog?
The Hall family’s tiny home might be small — but it’s big in detail.
Simple, yet beautiful landscaping really turn this tiny house into a family home. The added detail of the front door’s curtain adds a classy element.
Even the doorknobs on this small, gorgeous home are well thought out.
Their main living space, also known as the “big room” in most tiny homes, is perfectly well-suited for three people and their pup.
Using built-in storage really minimizes clutter and the tall ceilings make the room feel large and open. They added a ceiling fan to keep the room cool and to add airflow. This view is seen from their loft which will be seen in greater detail below.
Another view of the living area below shows all of the natural light that is let in by the windows.
As another space saver, the TV stand also doubles as a desk and workspace.
Looking back into their small, but functional, kitchen you can also see the loft bed above. The mattress is held into place by brass foot-rails found at a local pub.
The narrow stairs leading up to the loft are also the Hall’s pantry.
The loft is 8-feet-wide, leaving plenty of space to spread out and get comfortable for a good night’s sleep.
Their bathroom might be small, but it has everything you’d need. They added hooks on the wall for towel storage.
More storage surrounds the mirror above the toilet. Every single nook and cranny in this tiny space has been planned.
Another view from the outside shows just how tiny the home really is. And it’s mobile!
