Tru Form Tiny is a family-run tiny home builder in Eugene, Oregon. Last year, a client in Petaluma, California, commissioned them to build a custom tiny home based on their 28-foot Urban Payette model.
Tru Form Tiny worked with the client to update the standard model by incorporating dormers from one of their other styles. They then further customized the home's exterior by adding specially fabricated paneling and smooth-sawn cedar.

The client chose custom interior finishes from Tru Form Tiny's website, and opted to incorporate space-saving features that add to the functionality of the home. "For a versatile sleeping situation, we suggested using an elevator bed," explains Malia Schultheis, co-founder of Tru Form Tiny.
"Luckily, our client was daring enough to let us create one for him, as it is a feature we hadn’t done it before—and it turned out wonderfully." The elevator bed is set in a raised position during the day, complete with a fold-down desk underneath it. At night, the bed can be lowered and the desk folded up to create a headboard.

A set of steel and hickory stairs with a specially designed handrail lead up the loft. This design allows for additional space in the kitchen and helps maintain the airy, open feel.
In the bathroom, the toilet is separated from the shower stall. The custom-made stainless steel shower sits next to space designed for a washer/drier combo unit. The hookups are discretely tucked behind the cabinet.
The ceiling displays the company's meticulous woodworking techniques, and skylights flood the interiors with natural light. The bright and open living space is full of space-saving functionality and elegant design.
