Form meets function in this 26-foot tiny home, complete with its own Crossfit gym

Industrial aesthetics meet rustic charm in the Silhouette, a 26-by-8.5- foot tiny house created by Wind River Tiny Homes. Designed to take in panoramic Vermont views, walls of glass take center stage. Crammed with custom details, the luxurious tiny house retails for $89,500 as shown.
One the exterior, cedar siding marries patina steel-clad accents. To the side of the home, a large porthole window looks out over a copper swivel outdoor shower.

Espresso stain gives the Shaker-style wood door regal gravitas, flanked by oiled bronze industrial sconces. A fold-down awning lends the feel of a much larger home.
Inside, walls of windows and a large overhead skylight let in light and views. White shiplap walls complement dark wood flooring and the contrasting tongue-and-groove ceiling overhead. Instead of puck lighting, industrial-style Edison bulbs illuminate the space in style.
Built-in shelving sports geometric flair to the back of the space, designed as a cozy reading nook. A Cubic Mini wood stove is both stylish and functional, whereas two stories of windows and another skylight overhead add grandeur.
The kitchen, too, is equally stylish and functional, with a fold-down table at the end of the counter for dining space. Open shelving hangs above butcher block countertops and a farmhouse-style apron-front sink with high-neck faucet and cedar cutting board. An under-cabinet fridge faces a two-in-one washer/dryer across the way — both tiny home luxuries.
Next to the washer/dryer, an electric stove and oven is built below open shelving. Underneath, Shaker-style cabinetry wears a dark oiled stain.
Gym buffs rejoice! Tiny homes, too, can have an at-home gym. Here, an integrated exercise floor sits beneath a custom Olympic squat/bench rack. Gym rings hang above.
One of the home's best features is all of the integrated storage, hidden in sleek style. Drawers and cabinets are stashed beneath the entry step and in the staircase leading up to the sleeping loft.
In the sleeping loft, a custom-built queen-size bed frame sits beneath a large skylight, so residents can awake to the sun. Built-in cubbies offer storage for clothes, shoes and personal items.
Oak wood slat and Plexiglass doors lead to the walk-in shower, which is lined with limestone and faux wood tile. Above, the luxurious rain head wears an oil-rubbed bronze finish. A Cumaru wood shower deck insert below ensures steady footing. Because the home sits on private land, Wind River installed a large circular window so residents can shower with nature.

A patina steel pocket door leads to the bathroom, home to a glass vessel sink and Separett composting toilet. The Stiebel Eltron electric tankless hot water heater offers endless hot water for the home.

This tiny home started as a DIY project for the owner, who was wise enough to eventually recognize the importance and value of professional help to achieve a well-built home.
