“living in a tiny house is so much different than living in a real house and I love it because I got rid of over half of everything I owned to come here and I just think it’s great,” Penny told Tiny Home Tours.

The foyer doubles as a living room/main room

Upon entering the tiny home, the main room or ‘great room’, has everything Penny needs. She made sure to hold onto her favorite recliner that she’s had for 25-years, it sits looking out of beautiful awning windows that are perfect for the rainy weather.

The main room also has a TV, but Penny doesn’t watch television. There’s a crate that holds her dog food and also acts as a coffee table.

Penny loves to cook, especially baking homemade pies. That’s why she knew the kitchen would have to be bigger than most tiny house kitchens. She had the builders add extra counter space for her to roll her dough, which gives her plenty of space to comfortably bake.

She also made sure to get the biggest sink possible in a tiny home, the sink has racks right above it to hang your dishes and a beautiful window to gaze out of. There’s a full-size oven for Penny to bake, along with many electric outlets which were a must for the 77-year-old.

Living on the coast, Penny also has an exaught fan in her bathroom that is much bigger than most. That way she can pull out the moister in the air and keep her home comfy.

In the bedroom, there’s a huge bed with a massive window directly behind it. She had the bed built just high enough to fit storage bins under it, a very smart move on her part. It also has high vaulted ceilings to make it seem more spacious and for more storage shelves

Inside the tiny home is beautiful all-natural pine

The whole inside was constructed with all-natural pine, except for the bathroom which is the more absorbent cedar. Decorative wood beams stretch across the ceiling for some extra flare.

There is also a guest loft with a bed and doggy treadmill

Last but not least, is a stairway that leads up to a nice-sized loft. Penny has a treadmill for her pooch in the loft, a way for her dog to get all the exercise it needs. Last we heard, Penny was actually selling this tiny home in order to find one without a loft. This is because her disabilities make it too hard to get up and down the stairs.
