Floating on an aluminum pontoon along the east corner of Gas Works Park, this tiny house, named Harmony, is just 208 square feet. None of that space is wasted, though, with a thoughtful floorplan that builds in plenty of storage and a function for every corner.
Built-ins help maximize the square footage, including a fold-down dining table opposite the kitchen and plenty of cabinetry. Rather than have full rooms, the design relies a little more on nooks: The bed, for example, is built into a back corner behind a closet, keeping everything open but still keeping the sleeping area out of the living room. The kitchen is slightly recessed behind that closet and cabinetry around the fridge, creating a tidy delineation.
But the home’s living space opens more dramatically on the exterior, taking full advantage of the lakeside setting. Both the front and back decks are decently-sized for low-key hangs, and up top, a roof deck doubles the living space.
