Modern metal siding leads to industrial interiors in this contemporary tiny home

The Ironclad is the fusion of two popular Wind River Tiny Home builds: the Chimera and the Rook. Inspired by Civil War ships built to stand up to canon balls, the Ironclad is notably durable, outfitted with 40-year warranty metal siding and roofing.
Inside, interiors fuse modern decor with industrial accents that juxtapose light and dark hues. Full-sized appliances and a large bathroom mean homeowners don't have to downsize their lifestyle for a smaller footprint.

Metal siding sets the industrial tone from the outside. A black front door is flanked by iron and glass sconces for a brooding aesthetic.
Inside, white shiplap siding contrasts dark trim and hardwood floors. A custom storage couch near the entry doubles as a cozy seating area and a discreet place to stash household items. A Cozy Cabin propane wall heater warms the home.
In the kitchen, dark espresso shaker cabinets pair with butcher block countertops and a sleek subway tile backsplash. Above, open shelving offers stylish space to display serving-ware and small appliances. The stovetop and oven fueled by propane sits next to the roomy basin sink and high-neck stainless steel faucet.
Custom storage stairs lead up to the master loft bedroom. A washer/dryer combination and stainless steel fridge find homes tucked underneath next to roomy drawers to stash shoes and other household items. Anchored across from the stove, a cedar live-edge table provides space to enjoy a meal or serve up dinner buffet-style.
In the loft, the natural pine ceiling features minimal LED lights. Built-in shelving surrounds the bed area in contrasting dark stain against white shiplap siding. Industrial bedside light fixtures flank the window above floating nightstand cubbies.
A built-in steel ladder leads up to the secondary loft above the bathroom. Next to the door, a shaker-style closet serves as wardrobe storage. Overhead, the loft creates farmhouse-style exposed beams.

A minimal pocket door leads to the bathroom, where a floating sink features brushed nickel fixtures next to live-edge cedar shelves. A walk-in shower across the way displays white subway tile and brushed nickel fixtures. The bathroom includes a Nature's Head Composting Toilet.

Just because a home is small doesn't mean it has to skimp on design or compromise on style. In fact, this 300 square foot home is filled with elegant touches, chic details and modern decor that adds delight to this little but lovable space.
