Corinne Segura lives in British Columbia, Canada in a chemical-free tiny house she built by herself.
I think you’ll love her home’s unique design.
Maybe you’ll want to incorporate some of these features in your own build.
Corinne’s tiny house is well-insulated for the brutal Canadian winters.
Corinne based her layout on conventional plans from Leaf House, but modified the original design because she wanted a larger living area.
She used poplar for the interior. Next time she’d rather go with maple because it’s a hardwood with low odor.
Recently-installed materials will release relatively large amounts of noxious gases for some time. After a few months, the concentration greatly decreases. Corinne let the house off-gas for an entire month before moving in.
The walls are made of environmentally friendly magnesium oxide wallboard and filled with cotton insulation. MgO board is much heavier than conventional gypsum wallboard and Corinne had to deal with weight issues on her 10,000 lb trailer.
Listen to Corinne tell you more about her house.
That’s a neat idea to include a small landing area before the final climb up to the bed. It could be a good spot for getting dressed in the morning. Many tiny houses have steep roofs that limit the amount of head space in the loft. This landing area might help with that.
I also love the finished bathroom and the spacious 30″ x 30″ shower.
