Go spacious with a tiny home that sleeps up to 6 and is full of clever storage options

It is safe to say that anyone well-versed in the tiny home movement knows the name of Tumbleweed Tiny House Co. With its headquarters in Sonoma, Calif., and a factory in Colorado Springs, Colo., the company has been cranking out tiny homes since 1999, which puts it at the forefront of a radical home market that embraces an earth-friendly, experiential lifestyle.
This home called the Roanoke is one of four models in Tumbleweed's pioneering lineup. This model is available in 20-foot and 26-foot models with usable space of 188 square feet to 292 square feet. These are RV-certified travel homes that sleep up to six individuals. They also feature a spacious feel, thanks to the 10-feet tall ceilings above the kitchen and living rooms. Take a look at this design.

In a tiny house storage is critical, but so is a sense of orderliness. Chaos inside a tiny space doesn't work so well, especially with a home that travels along bumpy roads on occasion. But tiny storage cubbies help keep things in their place.

A huge kitchen and a very spacious bathroom help the homeowners balance out their needs. Who needs a ginormous couch, anyway?
