Introducing the Wallingford model – featuring our largest lofts

The dormers on the Wallingford extend almost the full length of the roof - creating a light and airy loft.

Seattle Tiny Homes is excited to announce our newest model: the Wallingford.

With a design patterned after some of the gracious dwellings in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle, this home features beautiful dormer windows that extend nearly the entire length of the roof on both sides.

The net result is a large loft area filled with natural light, creating an amazingly open and attractive space for sleeping, reading, or simply for storage.

Like every Seattle Tiny Home, the Wallingford is fully customizable to meet your specific needs. For example, you could have two separate lofts, giving you a vaulted ceiling above the great room. Or, you could have one large loft running the entire length of the home, giving you even more space upstairs.

Options also include a washer/dryer, shower or bathtub, full or partial kitchen, and your choice of colors, finishes, and amenities.

For customers needing even more space, we can craft the Wallingford as a 10-foot wide model. 10-foot wide models need a temporary $30 “wide load” permit to travel down the highways in Washington state.

Of course, the Wallingford features all the traits that have made Seattle Tiny Homes so popular: efficient use of space, beautiful craftsmanship, and quality contruction. For more information about the Wallingford, contact Sharon Read at (425) 445-3675.

A tiny home instead of a tree house!

Fanny always thought she wanted to live in a fancy tree house in her daughter’s backyard after she retired.  That was until she toured a Seattle Tiny Home.

Being a professional artist, Fanny knows beauty when she sees it.  After experiencing a Seattle Tiny Home and talking with founder Sharon Read, Fanny realized she would rather live out her dream in a different way.  She would live in her daughter’s backyard up on a little hill in a tiny, comfortable home that was more versatile and useful in many ways than her own current home.  And she could move her home around the country and live in other children’s backyards if she wanted to take turns.

Fanny customized her Ravenna model with a bedroom on the main floor.

Fanny took delivery of her dream home on Christmas Eve 2012. “I love to sit here and admire all the details in this house,” says Fanny. “I feel like I’m living in a piece of art.  And I like knowing I will be able to live in this beautiful home the rest of my life – yet I’m not restricted to this one place.”

Thank you, Fanny, for giving Seattle Tiny Homes the opportunity to help you fulfill your dream!

Why HydroGap for your tiny home?

HydroGap keeps a tiny home dry and mold-free.


Seattle Tiny Homes’ lead contractor, Ben Klassen, is known for being cutting edge. While attending a recent national building convention (where he took first place among all the contractors in a final test for certification), Ben learned about HydroGap, a state-of-the-art house wrap. Because mold and moisture can cause significant problems in tiny spaces that are not built properly, Seattle Tiny Homes is vigilant to intelligently construct a problem-free product that will last a lifetime.

The benefit of HydroGap is that it has built in spacers, with a gap of 1 millimeter, for water to flow freely away from the house. The house wrap provides superior protection against mold and moisture damage. And it’s an ideal combination of strength, water-holdout, and vapor permeability.

Innnovative products like HydroGap, combined with old-fashioned, high-quality construction, ensure that every Seattle Tiny Home will provide a lifetime of comfortable use.
