Total Grace tiny house is ready for work and play
Most of the home offices we see in tiny houses consist of nothing more than a cramped desk in a corner, which is understandable given the lack of space available. However, the Total Grace tiny house, by Build Tiny, has a dedicated office, helping its owner keep home life and work separate.
The Total Grace is based on a double-axle trailer and measures 8 m (26 ft), so is pretty small compared to many of the North American tiny houses we see, but a tad larger than most European models. It consists of a steel frame with a vinyl exterior and has a plywood interior. The walls are unpainted because the owner wants to do it herself. She'll also install her own cork floor at a later date.
Visitors enter the home through French doors into the main living area, which contains a bench-like seat with integrated storage space and a small table and chairs. The kitchen is adjacent and includes cabinetry, a 1.5 bowl sink, fridge/freezer, and a propane-powered oven and four-burner stove with a vented range hood. A TV is mounted on the wall too.
Next to the living area is another room that's slightly raised and accessed by a single storage-integrated step. This room is being used as the home office and it looks pretty snug in there, but there's space for a chair and desk. It also has some underfloor storage space (accessed by lifting a couple of floor panels) and a heat recovery ventilation system is installed too.
Over on the opposite side of the home from the office is a bathroom with washer/dryer, sink, composting toilet, and shower.
There's just one bedroom in the Total Grace, which is accessed by a staircase that has quite a bit of integrated storage: it contains a pull-out pantry, drawers, and the stairs can also be raised in places to stow smaller items.
The bedroom itself is a typical tiny house-style loft bedroom with limited headroom, though it does have a lowered platform area to make it easier to stand up and get dressed. There's also a double bed and some storage space in there.
The Total Grace gets power from a standard RV-style hookup and was delivered to its new owner in New Zealand complete with furniture (but excluding the flooring and painting). We've no word on the price of this one.
