Their tiny home was designed by Liberation Tiny Homes, a builder located in Lancaster County, which is known for creating one-of-a-kind mobile dwellings. Their house, which was named Apex, measures 40 ft (12.1 meters) in length and it’s 10-ft-wide (3-meter-wide). Although it’s about the same size as their old NYC apartment, Apex boasts a unique layout, with spaces that blur the lines between the indoors and outdoors.
Leo and Shannon have a large deck that can fit a table, several chairs, and a propane heater which allows them to spend time with family and friends even when it’s a little cold outside. To open up the house and extend the overall space, they opted for an accordion-style glass door. This somehow blends the exterior with the interior and creates a bright and airy area that everyone can enjoy.
The stairs leading to the loft are located adjacent to the living area and provide some storage space. As for the loft, the two converted it into an office. Since there’s not much standing space, they created a unique area that features a chair that can fit under a low desk. But that’s not all. Owners can sit just like they do in a regular workplace since the loft includes a small opening underneath the desk.
From the office, Leo and Shannon can access the rooftop deck, which offers incredible views of the Pisgah Forest. They set up some chairs, couches, and a table so they can admire the surroundings whenever they want.
Moving on to the kitchen, Apex is equipped with all the necessities. You’ll notice that it includes a four-burner propane cooktop, an oven, a range hood, and a large farmhouse-style sink. It also has a dishwasher and a residential refrigerator. They even have a coffee station that comes complete with a pull-out counter extension and a cubby hole, which hosts a microwave.
Last but not least, the bedroom in this tiny isn’t tiny at all. They have plenty of headroom and space for a big bed, closets, drawers, and shelves. There’s also a skylight above the bed. From the bedroom, they can access another room that is currently occupied by their pets. However, in the future, they plan to turn it into a kid’s bedroom.
