To say the tiny house craze is sweeping the nation is a bit of an understatement. More and more people are choosing to spend a majority of their time in the great outdoors, and most of their money on experiences rather than possessions. For some people however, even the thought of living in tiny houses makes them claustrophobic. Enter "The Alpha" model, from Nashville-based New Frontier Tiny Homes.
The Alpha has been featured on HGTV for its stunningly simple yet elegant design. Though it may seem like your standard tiny house, it holds some surprises.
The interior is more spacious than normal with plenty of counter space in the kitchen:
The bedroom is also a pretty standard cozy loft space.
And the bathroom is much larger than you've come to expect from a tiny house. It even has a bath tub!
But look a little more closely, and you'll see that what appears to be a wall is actually a relaxing fold-out porch!
And that's not the only surprise in this model. The opposite wall also has sliding glass doors that allow residents to see all the way through the tiny dwelling.
Now you're probably thinking, "Okay, but I don't want to have to unfold my porch every morning." No worries. You can leave it down, because the Alpha also features a glass garage door that you can close off at the end of the day.
