By building their tiny home on wheels, the Morrisons were able to bypass many of the building codes and regulations that normally stand in the way of building tiny homes. Although hOMe measures just 8.5 feet wide, its tall slanted ceilings and white walls gives the narrow house the illusion of space. The couple also placed their fully equipped kitchen and bathroom at opposite ends of the house to maximize the full width of the galley style trailer.

Strategic glazing also adds to a sense of spaciousness by bringing natural light into the tiny house and offering views out to the couple’s forested five-acre property. Beautiful black cabinets double as storage space as well as physical dividers that frame the different “rooms” of the house. Storage space is also built into a black staircase that climbs up to the large loft master bedroom. The second loft bedroom can be accessed via a ladder on the opposite end of the home. A small fireplace is tucked into the corner next to the ladder.
The spacious kitchen is equipped with a full size gas stove and oven, an 18 cubic foot fridge, a wine rack, and nearly 12 feet of counter space. Since hOMe is off grid, the bathroom includes a large Sun-Mar composting toilet. “Because we chose to build tiny rather than a larger house, we were able to pay for the materials in cash and now have the security of knowing that we will always have a place on this planet that we can live for free,” writes Gabriella on the Tiny House Blog. “And being that it’s off grid, we aren’t bound to utility bills and the system.”
