Come inside a compact home boasting two very well-designed sleeping spaces

According to their website, Robinson Residential Design Inc., home designers from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, have been sketching plans for residential projects -- and following that up with hammers and nails -- since at least 1996. Recently, however, they've begun to think small -- homes that measure about 200-square feet or less. Consequently, it would seem, they have taken to naming these diminutive domiciles after flashy insects. This one, coming in at 159-square feet, is looking for a new owner and known as the Dragonfly-20.
The Dragonfly-20 is 20 feet long, 8 feet and 4 inches wide. It has a fold down deck on each side -- perhaps giving viewers the impression that it is about to fly. It has double French doors on each side, a propane fireplace, a sofa bed and a pull-out table for dining. Let's take a look at this unique home on wheels.

Look at that array of windows, which blast this home with natural light. Notice the Dragonfly-20 has a beautiful dragonfly made of fabric hanging from the walls.

In the photo above, you can see the dining pull-out table, that also doubles as a work space if needed.
By keeping an eye on the dragonflies, you can keep your bearings as the photographer pivots to face the other way. Behind that white closed door is the bathroom. The skylight overhead is a great touch.
Great view of the kitchen, this time with the bathroom door swung open. You can see the countertop stove and the large kitchen sink on the left.
You may have noticed something that looks like a sleeping loft over the bathroom.
It's a small bed perfect for guests or kids visiting.
Inside the bathroom, besides delicate décor choices and more dragonflies motifs, one can find a small sink, a toilet, and a shower.
Here's the view of the couch when it is pulled out for use as a bed. It comes out almost far enough to touch the kitchen counters, but it also shows the one constant among tiny homes: They are incredibly cozy.

Yes, even the exterior gives an impression of coziness. This shows how the Dragonfly-20 might fit in a display show, boasting that incredibly handy fold-down deck.

This tiny home is proof that keeping it simple still works. There's no great surprises in the layout, but it includes a terrific kitchen, a large master bedroom and, listen to this: A sound studio.
