Houzz Tour: Rock Musician’s Tiny House Wakes Up the Neighborhood

Asha Mevlana likes to make noise. She’s an electric violinist who tours with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra rock band every year, and who has performed with Roger Daltrey of The Who, Alanis Morissette and other top musicians. Her on-the-road lifestyle caused her to keep all her belongings in storage units in Los Angeles, Boston and New York. “It was all over the place,” she says. “I never felt I had a home.”

Mevlana’s situation changed recently when she decided to build a tiny house on land her brother and his family owns in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Inspired by Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Mevlana wanted a clutter-free place where she could decompress after a long tour, build a community and, yes, make plenty of noise, which she does in a practice trailer designed to look like a real Marshall half-stack amp.

It would be good if you would always give readers an idea of how much they would have to budget for such a house. Minus, of course, the land but including the savings she got through her connections and relatives, as an ordinary person wouldn't be that fortunate.

I am awestruck looking at your home and studio. I was and still awestruck by the greatest rock orchestra ever - TSO! And my condolences to TSO on the loss of the fanatical, mind bender composer and musician and co-founder Paul O'Neill last year. But as it has been said a zillion times - the orchestra is powered by the fans! Rock on ......

This is a pretty chic setup with much to admire. But, it would have been really cool if you had done a video of it with her playing music in the background. Now that would have been totally outrageous!

Absolutely beautiful! Nothing feels cramped or forced, it's a beautifully laid out home that coincidentally happens to be "tiny." The use of color, wood and texture is perfect. I love the glass paneled garage door - with it and the trailer open to the deck you could easily host a party.

Okay, this is the first tiny house that I could actually see me living in if I was just one. I would love the simplicity of having less of everything! Since I can't play a radio without getting static, the extra room would be for my hobbies.

Outstanding. My favorite is the physics-inspired bicycle wheel to move the pot rack. NW Arkansas and Fayetteville is a beautiful area of the country (we plan to retire in a few years on Beaver Lake) but it is HOT in the summer. The garage door windows permit great sunshine, but I'm left wondering about thermal insulation issues with a garage door. How do they manage this?

The house is a gem. But climate control has to be a problem And with a sleeping loft above it has to be a awfully warm space what with the metal siding and glass door and so much sun For a mobile person with property within a property the logistics for seclusion and security work to great advantage. I especially like the custom table -- an idea worth considering for any small living space. The all weather amp is perfection for a rocker! Bravo!

The house is just beautiful! While there are no “hard and fast” definitions of what makes a home a tiny home or a small home, it is generally considered that a true “tiny home” is under 250sq feet; definitely under 350. Therefore, I would consider this a small home for those that are considering tiny house living. It’s an important distinction because tiny homes teach us about living minimally. Either way, great design for the space.

It’s as if Mary Poppins’s carpet bag was transformed into a house! I am amazed at what can be fitted (attractively!) into such a tiny space. The recording-studio-as-amp is genius.

I am mourning a dying dream at the moment. After years of looking at pre-fab tiny houses and finished sheds/ADUs, I thought I had found my ideal (within my budget) she-shed...only to find out that the delivery truck is too big for my access road. I guess I will have to do a custom build. That will happen...like...probably never. Sigh.

@Nitpicker: Insulation? Air conditioning? Not sure where you get the idea this little house would be harder to heat and cool than any conventional home. Even the glass garage-door-style opening is likely insulated glass. You see those used in cold climates Iike NYC. They seal well when closed.

This house makes tiny homes seem less like an interesting idea and more like a doable-real-life thing. As @altadavey and a few other reviewers suggested, this is the first and only tiny house I have ever seen that would not appear to take a colossal sacrifice in comfort or practicality to live in. I have seen many tiny homes that I have found equally attractive, but their diminutive size always made them something I would only ever consider inhabiting on a very temporary basis. This home is small, yes, but so well appointed that I feel I would be very comfortable living here, even long term. It really has everything one needs and does not seem like living in it would be equivalent to glorified camping. Having a full (albeit small) size kitchen and bath, with laundry and a sleeping area that doesn't look like a mattress on the floor of a cramped, crawl space makes this SO much more appealing than anything else out that I have come across. Very well done, thanks for sharing.

@Pierre Dalterio: Difference is the width. Most tiny homes/trailers are 8' and 6' in width. This tiny home is 10' in width. Her kitchen is 13 x 9. My kitchen is 10 x 9 and it's a moderate ranch house about 1900 sq ft.

Also take into account the height. Since the amp is 11' in ht, that side trailer is probably 12' in ht which is fine for many bridges. The main house which is not mobile is a bit taller - I take a guess over 13' which makes it precarious for many bridges if it was mobile. Limit is 13.5' for mobility.

The length is 40' which is 10' wide by 40' equals the 400 sq. ft listed above. That is above federal regs of 20' if mobile (on wheels). Tiny house associations consider square footage since many folks build permanent instead of mobile.

As for a bath 5' x 8' is a standard bath room for a guest or master (in a small house). The bath above is 42 sq ft, so it's a tiny bit larger.

The "average" one bedroom/1 bath apt ranges from 350 - 850 sq ft. The home above is 400 sq ft. For the fun of it - I look at the above homestead as a permanent standing apartment with a music studio attached. :)

No matter how you look at it, one thing -it's awesome!

Even though not an official tiny home, this is a great example of how one can have an efficient and yet stylish home with a small footprint, a concept that our world needs to embrace more versus the outlandish large houses that 1 or 2 persons occupy just because they can (and in some cases can't but do anyways). This was obviously designed and constructed by a very professional company, which shows what creativity can emerge when builders are challenged to do so. More builders of this calibre would benefit to encourage people to make alternate lifestyle choices such as this.

I could live in this house, sadly, I have no musical talent.

A beautiful, well constructed, tiny house could be the answer to a lot of housing issues as it illustrates how one or two people could, comfortably, live in style while not giving up on modern appliances/natural light or comfort.

SADLY, many towns would not allow this to be built, even on a full foundation.

If I build a two bedroom house, the septic must be for a 3 bedroom. I need 10,000 sq ft of land for every bedroom, but no construction is allowed on a lot less than 40,000 sq ft. Hello? Does that math make sense?

What alternatives? Obviously, a condo, but that means (ridiculous) condo fees, added to property taxes, can make owning a condo impractible.

I just googled raw land available in my area. Lowest price? $240,000. Highest price $7+ million dollars. And you need a boat to get home….once you build it.

Thanks, Mitchell Parker, for years your stories have fascinated (me) us houzzers.

Wow! what a beautiful story, beautiful woman! thanks for posting this. I walked through breast cancer with my wife of 32 years and unfortunately it took her life. It's good to see a "Survivor" story and the impact that the disease had to shape your perspective and the course of your life! I am an amateur musician, I play trumpet and flugelhorn in local ensembles and a church praise band. I can identify with that improvisational experience, where a melody emerges from the depths of your soul, its cathartic and priceless! I think it takes you to places you've never been and changes you!

The story is about a small house; No it's about the amazing transformation of a truly remarkable human being! Continue to soar with the melodies from your heart! Thank you, you've touched me, my life is better for it!

Life is about experiences and people, not about things. A beautiful narrative a beautiful reminder that for us to truly grow we need to move beyond our mental perceptions of “things worship”.
Houzz moving beyond the limitations of “things”. Bolt step in the right direction. Thank you for this story. Oh by the way nice house.

Just attended a TSR concert over the holidays and loved Asha's playing as well as the entire band. Very glad that she decided to follow her musical talent. ALSO, absolutely love her tiny house and studio. I now want one for my wife and I that looks just like Asha's. Hahahahaha

Love your comfortable tiny home design! Many of the designs are too small for my comfort level but yours is quite livable. I really appreciated your story especially how your music instructor encouraged you to express your thoughts in music as you began dealing with the cancer- I am a cancer survivor 20 years, this month.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and thoughts about what matters most in life.

Terrific home. Well thought out. What kind of heating and/or cooling systems have been employed in this house?

Great space....Thanks for the video.
Got a couple of great ideas for my farm house - the layout and external stair into the lawn for a nice music get together.

You can see this build on Tiny House Nation. They are the ones that built it for her and her boyfriend. It will also inform you of the cost. Beautiful house! They did a great job!

Proud to say that our DeckWise Hidden Siding Fasteners were used on this small home so that no hardware could be seen. What a beautiful design!

When you are going to have concerts on your porch are you polite and pass out notices to let your neighbors know ahead of time? I hope so. I like how your house sits I really like corner lots. Your back yard is so pretty. You don't live like so many people who are in your field. You are not closed off to the world. You live in a neighborhood of days gone by. The kind of community a lot of us who are viewing your video did. It seems like a nice neighborhood to live in. Also I like the orchestra that you play and work with. You all are so creative with your stage shows. Who doesn't like the version of Carols of the Bells that you all play around Christmas time and I am glad you are healthy once more. Bye Now

In a small home I am always curious about the bathroom situation. Bummed it was not shown in this beautiful home.

Very impressed with Asha's small house and her minimalist approach to design and life. This is the first small house I've seen that really gets me excited!

A house with such a modern concept is definitely not a regular thing to hear. Wonderful.
