Take a peek inside the "Tiny project"

It's quite possible to have everything you want in a tiny home, albeit with a little work. What this basically means is that, sure you can have a kitchen table, but it needs to fold up from the wall. You want a longer couch? Unfold the loveseat you're sitting on and slide around multiple boxes and you've got it. The biggest thing to take away from the Tiny Project is that they have all their amenities, but in a comfortably stationary manner. 
Astoundingly the Tiny Project is situated within only 169 ft2. Usually a living situation like that feels cramped and inconvenient but the streamlined design of this house actually makes it look somewhat comfortable. There are dedicated areas for lounging, eating, and computer work – all of which can be performed at the same time. A spacious loft and high ceilings help avoid the claustrophobic feeling to create a more freeing atmosphere.

The narrow walkway can actually be seen as a positive. It helps create separation between the kitchen and the great room / loft area.
The high ceilings may seem like 'dead space' but they create the vibe and openness of the home. The ability to have a ceiling fan adds comfort and air circulation as well.
An office, a dining room, and a living room can coexist at the same time without folding, shuffling, unhinging, and fastening – and with room to spare.
The high ceilings also add to the convenience of accessing the loft and storage area without excessive bending and stooping.
The loft area includes room for a queen size bed as well as storage. Once again, this is all within 169 ft2.
A view down from the loft shows plenty of space in the entry way and an example of the natural light that permeates through the multiple windows and the high ceilings.   
The bathroom is bright and, although not the most spacious room, still functional...
