Wife builds tiny home with elevator bed

Tiny homes are all the rage. You've probably spent hours Pinteresting them and browsing articles just like this one. But, we have to say, this tiny home designed by woodworking genius Ana White is unlike anything we've ever seen. Keep reading for the full tour below.
The home, which is just 24 foot long and 8-1/2 feet white, feels open and airy thanks to white paint and neutral accents. But it's the sophisticated mix of modern and country that's got us head over heals. And what's really sold us on this tiny home is the pure functionality of it all.

White has come up with clever storage tricks for each and every room that are going to blow you over. You might be able to even use some of these tips in your own regular sized home! Let's take a closer look.
To keep the living room feel open and airy, White has designed the space so that the couch is tucked in the back corner. This is cozy, but it also gives anyone sitting there a great view of the rest of the room. If you can see, the white bottom part of the couch even works as additional storage space.
Now, you probably noticed the bed in the last photo and thought 'Where's the ladder to get up there?' There's no ladder needed, ladies and gents. White has made the bed mechanical (See video below for how it works) -- it drops right down from the ceiling so it hovers over the couch. This is perfect for anyone who thinks they would be much too tired to scramble down the stairs to go to the restroom in the middle of the night.
Another great feature, though, is that the couch can be rolled out into a full sized bed as well. So, you can sleep people in both spots easily! ​
Look at all that natural light! Those gigantic windows really make this space. It doesn't feel like tiny living in here at all. We love the rustic flooring and the pretty geometric rug. Here, you can also catch a glimpse of the shelving unit that provides a ton of storage for all your household stuff.
Of course, White has another trick up here sleeve here. Those pretty, rustic doors fold up and out into a little murphy dining table. Genius, right? This is a major space saver, and utterly convenient.
As you looked into the kitchen from the last photo, you might have noticed that little spice rack which is a cute storage addition. But, again, White has to add another touch of functionality. The spice rack is on a little track which shows tons of additional storage in the back.
Then there's this awesome kitchen space. We can't get enough of those jet-black cabinets contrasting against the white marble. The whole room brings together the entire rustic country feel mixed with sleek modernity.
There's also that awesome barn door that slides to the side to get into the bathroom, and there's that built-in bookshelf for everything else that needs a home.
Last but not least is this creative use of bathroom space. "Inside the bathroom, a closet slides out from the shower for hanging clothes. When the shower is in use, the closet easily slides over the toilet. When the closet is in the shower, the shower curtain clips over the shower head to protect clothing," explains White.
