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.

This couple bought a shell of a micro-shelter: Framing wrapped in sheathing. All they needed from there was to add floors, walls, ceiling, windows, trim, paint, wiring, plumbing, cabinets, bathroom, bedroom loft, storage, etc. You get the idea.
