Great space and what a cute couple!! I do have to say since this "tiny house" movement has begun, which I love by the way, I have recently come to learn that my 937 sq foot house is considered small!! We are a family of five and I never considered my home "small". I grew up in large houses, the last I lived in before moving out was 3000 sq ft....I would take a small space over a huge space any day.

Cute couple. Cute dog. They are clearly happy with their home, but I thought it had a 'still in college' cast-off vibe. No cohesion, everything a mish-mash. The tied drapes detract from rather than enhance the windows and view. The bedroom is far too cramped. Although they mention living minimally and maximizing storage repeatedly, their solutions - an armoire, a dresser, rolling racks and a funky ladder to a storage niche (do you really want to climb that to get a towel?) really don't effectively solve their storage problems. To really maximize the space they could have custom built in's running under the windows - that would provide not only lots storage but window seating or display space. Although the bedroom is small, it appears there's space to build a real closet. Rotating the bed to the wall facing the window and elevating it (think storage drawers underneath) would provide more storage and room to move around. Instead of nightstands, use wall mounted shelves and lighting. Lofts typically don't have many doors, but where there is a door take advantage of the space above. A long shelf above the bedroom door (both sides) would provide extra storage space (think decorative bins, baskets or boxes to neatly house items), and would make better use of their ladder. The brief view of the bathroom shows lots of blank wall space and one tiny towel bar - make use of that space for shelving to hold towels and bath items. This loft has good bones, but I just kept thinking it could have been so much more.
