The Honey House: a Tiny Home That's Innovating Eco-friendly Building for Small Homes!

You'll want to take a look inside this tiny cabin design, built with a whole lot of heart. When Isabelle Nagel-Brice began looking for a place to live in Colorado, she quickly realized that for the amount of money she was going to pay on rent for the next few years, she could instead purchase the building materials needed to construct a green tiny cabin design on wheels. Nagel Brice had a background in permaculture and sustainable design, so she set about constructing a unique small house plan that was not only a wonderful home but one that was packed full of eco-friendly, and healthy home features. All throughout the tiny cabin design-build, Nagel Brice has remained conscious of the building materials that she has used to construct her tiny home. She ensured that she was not only building a tiny cabin design that would be healthy to live in but also a home that was built with building materials that were considered environmentally friendly and could also be recycled or biodegrade at the end of the tiny cabin designs life.

The tiny cabin design is designed to be off-grid ready, with solar panels that are soon to be added. The tiny cabin design is also well insulated and designed to be suitable for living in any climate zone. Colorado can get very cold, so constructing the tiny cabin design to be warm and comfortable was important. The unique small house plans kitchen is designed to be open to the downstairs area and has lots of bench-space. Nagel Brice plans to homestead in the future, and there is plenty of space that can be dedicated to both cooking but also to the canning and preservation of food when required. Theres a comfortable seating area that also becomes a great place to relax in front of the Dickinson propane heater. The couch design in this unique small house plan is packed full of useful storage space and can also be transformed into a queen-sized guest bed. Multiple-use is a key principle of permaculture that has also crossed into the world of tiny design spaces. The little writing desk in this tiny cabin design also has an old peddle sewing machine built into it.

The bathroom in this unique small house plan has been designed to allow for a good sized bath tub and is large enough for her to bath not only herself but also her large dog who often needs a good bath after adventures in the Colorado wilderness. The bathroom has a Natures Head composting toilet which means that this tiny cabin design doesnt need to worry about any black water. The toilet in this unique small house plan is designed to separate liquids and solids, and the constant 12v fan which runs inside the tiny cabin design eliminates any potential odor that comes from the bathroom. Upstairs, the sleeping loft is both beautiful and cozy. She was conscious of creating a healthy sleeping environment to match her tiny home, and she sleeps on an organic latex mattress which at only seven inches helps to give her lots of headroom in the loft. Nagel Brice has done a great job of constructing a wonderful tiny cabin design for herself. For the cost of a few years rent in Colorado, Nagel Brice has built home-security into her life plan and has set herself up for a bright and sustainable future.
