Strategically designed by Canadian tiny home builders Summit Tiny Homes, The West Coast is a 375-square-foot tiny house sited on Vancouver Island in British Columbia for a young family of four. Featuring a double-door entry, as well as a hidden, mechanical slide-out, the striking abode also has a unique exterior facade of wooden shingles and green-stained siding—inspired by homes in the Pacific Northwest.
Inside, custom hardwood floors, whitewashed walls, and stained beams and trimmings allow the house to feel bright, warm, and modern, all with a splash of rustic charm.

Behind the couch is a split staircase—with plenty of hidden storage built inside—that leads up to the kids' sleeping loft. The upper level also consists of a master loft, which includes a bed and a small work space.
In the dining area is a custom-built oak table that can be folded up and down in three different sections.
Just beyond the kitchen is a built-in "his and her" wardrobe with plenty of drawers and hanging space, followed by a bathroom that features a fully tiled bath and shower. The built-in bathroom sink and vanity have also been designed with plenty of storage space, and includes a Separett Villa compost toilet that is placed next to the large washer-dryer unit.
