Tour a tiny home full of smart design choices and a genius main floor bedroom

On her blog "Chi Splatter," blogger Masha Shubin shares that she loves her tiny house, despite the fact that she recently put it up for sale.
Whoever ends up living in this tiny palace of fun will soon enough realize they own a one-of-a-kind tiny home that takes the concept of non-conformity to a new level. Called the "Tiny Red Bungalow," this home features a curved, caravan-like roof line that allows for plenty of upstairs headroom — at least for those standing under the highest part of the arch. It also has two lofts, one of which is used as a living room. The lofts add209-square feet to the cottage for a far more practical 335-square foot tiny manor.

Of course, each tiny home betrays the designer's lifestyle. In this one, Shubin says she purposefully decided against a counter top stove because they restrict their area to just one purpose. Instead, she went with induction cooktops so she could stow them away when they were not being used.
There are many other clever choices evident in this home. Let's take a look at a few of them.
This view of the exterior shows you the arched roofline, which allows for six feet of headroom in the center of the lofts.
Straight through the big French doors, you can see the split staircase — an interesting feature in the Tiny Red Bungalow. But you can also see the strange castors under the stairs. They are practically industrial grade castors that can move up to 400 pounds. In addition, they can be moved to provide the bottom four steps for each of the two lofts, and they can be moved out of the way for extra space when it is needed.
The movable stair base also serves as a storage container.
This view shows you the loft and the tall closet, which also provides the top four steps of the staircase.
This loft, says Shubin, is her favorite hangout. It is easy to see why.
The other loft is used as a living room. Here's a clever idea: Shubin uses a projector to serve as her second computer monitor, which means she has a really big screen TV that takes up no space at all.
This is actually the downstairs bedroom, underneath the living room loft. This is just one possibility.
And here's another. This is the same space as the previous photo.
This photo provides a bit of orientation, showing the same space as the two previous shots.

Here's one choice for a tiny house — a flush toilet.
And here's another one: A shower instead of a bath.
