Carol and Clay Hanchett met in Hawaii, and what started as friendship soon turned into a marriage. It wasn’t long before they picked up, relocated, and started their family in a city ironically called Aloha in Oregon. They wanted to design and build a home that would allow them to spend time with their two sons Manoah and Kona.
The young family built their Hawaiian-inspired dream home, which is actually two tiny homes in one.
At just around 600-square feet, the ‘mega’ tiny home was built using two 174-square-foot trailers, connected with a 240-square-foot glass-ceiling sunroom in the center. Take a look inside to see how this family makes it work.
In the left trailer, you’ll find a kitchen that also doubles as the ‘laundry room.’
The small but efficient kitchen boasts a large, deep-basin sink, a small stove and oven, as well as a washer/dryer combo underneath the countertop. What else do you really need?
On this side of the home, you’ll also find the master bedroom and bathroom.
The master bedroom has plenty of room for a queen-sized bed and a few elements of decor. The large windows help expand the feeling of the space, letting tons of natural light flood inside. Neutral colors and light wood flooring also help make the room feel larger than it really is.
The bathroom features gorgeous vinyl wall tile, imported from Italy.
The home boasts a composting toilet, shower, and a small tub that is perfect for the kids, or a relaxing soak with a book – a very unique feature not commonly found in tiny homes.
On the right side of the home, in the second trailer, you’ll find a small seating area, as well as two additional sleeping areas.
A small sofa fits perfectly and snugly into the right trailer. Not pictured is the second ‘bedroom’ and the sleeping loft. Downstairs is a private sleeping nook with a queen-sized mattress and upstairs is the sleeping loft for Carol and Clay’s two young boys.
The cleverly designed home has many impressive elements, but the most jaw-dropping room of the home is the glass-roofed sunroom and living room.
The entire room can open up to the beautiful rolling hills outdoors, or the Hanchett family can socialize and play board games while being kept warm by the eco-friendly and efficient wood stove.
“You’re so invited by that room when you look at the windows,” Clay told CountryLiving.com. “It just adds a component that’s very unique. It’s a great way to enjoy the property.”
