Wichita-based tiny house builder Made Relative recently unveiled its fourth custom home — Sycamore, a 320-square-foot dwelling that’s now available for $90,000. Crafted by cousins Reid and Kale, the new tiny home features natural timbers throughout the design in addition to an abundance of natural light and an open layout. The home also comes partially furnished with custom built-ins, select lighting and custom furniture pieces.
Named after the use of sycamore in the interior, the Sycamore tiny house includes a mix of timber types from the tongue-and-groove cedar siding on the exterior to the engineered and waterproof hickory tongue-and-groove floors found in the living area. The warm timber palette is complemented with copper accents peppered throughout, such as the two copper bar stools that pull up to the sycamore bar and custom copper railings for the loft spaces.
For a bright and airy feel, Made Relative wrapped the interior with white shiplap and birch and inserted 11 windows that let in daylight and open up for natural ventilation. At the heart of the home is the kitchen, which features a 2-inch thick elm countertop and a 30-inch, full-size gas range. The bar and dining space sit opposite the kitchen. On one end of the home is the bathroom tucked behind a custom wood herringbone door and on the other is the living room. This living space is organized around an elm entertainment center and includes a custom peach-colored velvet couch that can be easily converted into a bed.
To maximize storage, the designers integrated three large cabinets into a switchback staircase that leads up to the main loft, an 80-square-foot elevated space with dimmable overhead LEDs and enough space for storage and a queen-sized mattress. A ladder leads up to the secondary, 32-square-foot loft that can be used as another sleeping space or for storage.
