This post looks back to a great legacy project we did a couple of years ago. “The Vista” was named for the scenic surroundings it was destined for in the Colorado or Utah region, which also inspired many of the design elements. We’ll dig into the design for this tiny home shortly, but if you like what you see, check out the plans for our Etowah and Rutledge tiny homes that, like the Vista, feature main floor sleeping areas. Get in touch with us if you want to learn more about our collaborative design process.
When planning the exterior color scheme for the Vista, we took into consideration that the tiny home would be in bright sunlight with few shade trees and earthen colors as a backdrop. Bright sunlight tends to mute bold colors so we worked with the client to choose Sherwin Williams Haven 6437. For the entrance door and side-light, we chose Sherwin Williams Earthen Jug 7703 to match the landscape. The trim of the house is a complimentary color, Sherwin Williams Wool Skein 6148. The cedar shake accents in the dormers tie everything together.
In the interior, we contrasted medium dark wood with white walls and earthen tones like grey lower cabinets, a varied glass tile backsplash (reminiscent of polished stone), and a blue tile accent and niche in the shower.
Here are some of the other features of the Vista tiny home:
- Post and beam gable tie
- Tongue & groove ceiling with Minwax Provincial stain
- 3/4″ hardwood floors
- White quartz kitchen countertop
- Farmhouse sink
- Painted 7″ shiplap interior walls
- Built-in storage bed by Wind River
- Built-in nightstands by Wind River Furniture
- Built-in closet and stowable ship’s ladder by Wind River Furniture
- Tile surrounding a 48” shower pan, glass shower doors, and a niche shelf
- Tile bathroom floor
Upgrades to the Vista tiny house also included appliances. The client upgraded from a cooktop to a 24” GE gas range/oven, an 11 cu ft LG fridge, and a Frigidaire stacked washer/dryer.
Sometimes when houses leave our facility, we miss them. There is much love and care that goes into our tiny homes and we get attached to them and forge strong bonds with our customers. Thank you for coming with us on that short trip down memory lane. We’d love for you to become the next member of our Wind River family. Get in touch to learn more.
