If you have any problems with height, the photos of this house located in Nada, Japan might have made you cringe.

But when your house is built on only 36.95 square meters I guess you have to find a way to manage up right?

Anyways, I really enjoyed this unique tiny home and it’s interesting to see all the different ideas and designs all over the world.

What do you think about this house? Would any of you consider it? Why or why not?

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts below. 🙂

Tiny House Kitchen for a Tall Man

This is a problem I’ve came across many times while communicating with others in the tiny house community and on the comments of Tiny House Talk.

“I am trying to make the cross over to simple living/tiny houses but my significant other is over 6ft, I don’t know how he will manage in there.”

I have seen many other tall/large people manage fine in their tiny house and I think it’s all about just being patient and finding or creating the right design that works for you.

And if it doesn’t work out, it’s totally okay! At that point you have to ask yourself, “what’s more important, my significant other or living in a tiny house?”

Then you can make a decision that works for both of you. As long as you really care about the person you’re with, right? People are more important than living tiny.

But anyway, the kitchen above looks suitable for Shaq himself (okay that might be an exaggeration), so none of you should let height or size deter you from pursuing simple living!

And if it is too cramped, consider going small instead of tiny. Like a park model RV or a little cottage. You might also want to read this discussion on Tiny House Talk titled, I Like Tiny Houses But I’m Not Tiny, What Do I Do?

Tall Tiny House with a Covered Front Porch



You can hardly tell but this tiny house is actually built on a trailer. The wheels were just removed.

This structure was built to be semi-permanent but easy to move if needed. It was made to stay on this land.

That’s why they were able to make it taller than most tiny houses on trailers because they have no plans on towing it on public roads.

I think this is such a great way to build a slightly roomier loft area as long as you don’t plan on moving your house from the land you might own.

The benefit is that you get a much more spacious sleeping loft upstairs. What are your thoughts on this idea? Think you might as well just built on a regular foundation? I think it’s a pretty interesting idea that adds a little versatility to the structure.
