This tiny house is big on Southern style. Meet the Low Country, a 464-square-foot structure that just might be the dreams tiny house we’ve ever seen. The modular house is one of two designed by Jeffrey Dungan (of Birmingham-based Jeffrey Dungan Architects) as part of the Clayton Building Group’s Tiny Collection (also in the collection is the Saltbox). This particular Designer Series tiny home (and naturally, our favorite) is dubbed Low Country in honor of the Southern regions that inspired its style.
The exterior features poplar bark siding with 1×4 vertical shiplap, while the roof is made of cedar shake and metal. “When I think of a low country, it’s always about the marshlands of South Carolina and the coastal regions around Savannah and Charleston with their inherent and intoxicating ease of living,” Dungan said. “What could be more Southern than a porch with bracket supports and handmade details like carved rafter tails at the eaves for good measure?”
Low Country Tiny House Floorplan
The Living Space
Dungan opted for reclaimed wood for the ceiling beams and floors and covered the walls in vertical shiplap.
Even folks who have no intention of downsizing to a tiny house seem infatuated with the concept and love to watch others go tiny.
The living area can accommodate a dining room table to seat up to six. A covered porch with extended overhangs.
Like some old Southern homes, the Low Country boasts vaulted ceilings to allow heat to rise during those hot, hot summers—plus dormer windows for better ventilation.
The Kitchen & Utilities
Shaker-style cabinets in a dark stain and a sleek vent hood round out the kitchen.
In the kitchen, there’s a full-height pantry, a gas stove, a dishwasher, and built-in bar dining for four. There’s even a stacked washer-dryer, built-in desk, and full height closet storage—three things not always seen in spaces of this size.
The design includes space for a refrigerator, stacked washer and dryer, and a full-height pantry.
Eight people can be accommodated within this 396-square-foot house: two in the bedroom, two in the loft, two on the fold-out couch, and two on the bunks.
Is this the cutest little office niche, complete with the window you have ever seen!?!
What a difference a lofty ceiling makes in a tiny bathroom in a tiny house!
The vanity feels home-like rather than airplane lavatory-like.
All of that vertical height is put to use as storage.
Classic and practical tiled shower surround.
