An entirely unique tiny home built by a brother and sister team on the Big Island of Hawaii. Their design features high vaulted and A-frame ceilings with an inviting curved roof in the center of this home above the loft. A giant circular shape takes form from two half-moon windows being joined in a bump-out on the back living room wall. A mango wood bartop is secured between the two half-moon windows providing a spectacle of a dining and workspace. The bathroom is granted more room than similar floor-plans, not only with the remarkable headroom but with the shower not taking a corner and instead creates it's own! The blue-tiled shower extends outward of the structure of the home to sit over the tongue of its trailer foundation. When you look through the bathrooms open door, you see beautiful, clean glass and tile with light coming in through the roof. The shower being almost an addition has yet another roof pitch, only this one is clear letting in natural light from above which enables live plants to offer a tropical experience. Much of this home's impressiveness comes of the details in craftsmanship, style, and livability. Hawaiian curly mango wood is not only used as indoor and outdoor bartops but also ties in the stair-treads, shelving, and window sills. Exposed Ceiling beams, tile detailing around window and backsplash, and stainless steel countertops add a contemporary edge. Beautifully decorated to keep things light and open, this tiny home offers substantially more than simply a practical living space.

Oasis Tiny House, clad in teal-painted plywood and a metal roof that's pitched in the front and curved in the rear, was designed and built by Ellie and Dan Madsen of Paradise Tiny Homes in Keaau, Hawaii.

An outdoor deck and bar area with a mango wood counter and a massive window create an indoor/outdoor living experience.

Artistic accents to draw your eye

The pitched portion of the roof creates a high ceiling and an airy aesthetic in the living area, where large windows, including two half moon windows, facilitate plenty of sunlight.

The curved portion of the roof provides added headspace for the loft-style bedroom. "I really like the bubble windows along the storage stairs," Dan says. "They match the curvy aspects of the house, and you can put your head inside them and see 180 degrees."

An elongated kitchen window ties the interior to the outdoor deck and bar area and the landscape beyond.

A Hawaiian mango wood counter and shelving add texture and warmth in the bathroom.

A skylight and live plants in the bathroom shower supply the feeling of bathing outdoors.
