The Periwinkle Tiny House

My favorite thing about this tiny house is…

its owner, Patti Cannan! Well, and the colors, and all the personal touches Patti included in it which just make it one of the happiest tiny homes I’ve seen. Most of the interior items have a story behind them, many coming from family and others found at garage sales, Craig’s list, and friends’ basements.

The Periwinkle was built by a group of home schoolers three years ago. Patti bought it as a shell and finished the interior with the help of her husband,  but doing most of the finishing herself.  She says if she can do it, anyone can! She is definitely an inspiration for me!

Patti made her comfy couch, which turns into a bed, using a memory foam mattress.

This was an old hardware store sink, and the cabinet had been in a friend’s basement for 30 years.

Patti originally made these owl shutters for her Mom. She cut them down for her tiny house; they are great reminders of her mother.

The bathroom door was an exterior door she found at a garage sale, and the mirrored slide came from the Habitat store. (photobombed by me!)

Per her husband’s request, the bathroom has a 36″ shower.

The loft is carpeted and has about 4′ of headroom. Don’t you love the window and those lamps?

More creative touches: An adorable chandelier, hooks made by Patti, and artwork created by her sister.

There’s no place like here…especially when you find friends like Amy Henion here!
