At just 430 square feet, the Micro House packs big design in a tiny frame. The home comfortably holds a bathroom, sleeping area, kitchen, dining table, living room, loft, and even some storage space, while a basement — accessed by a hatch door in the floor — adds extra storage and a laundry room. Clean design paired with a bright pallet comprised of local maple floors, birch plywood, and white walls gives the small interior a spacious quality. Although space is limited, views are not. A series of windows gives each area a sense of separation by framing in a unique aspect of the landscape, with the main focus being the Camel's Hump mountain in the distance.
