Hi, I’m Ryan

I built my own tiny house over a decade ago, and I’ve helped build many more tiny houses of different sizes since then. I love pushing the boundaries of tiny living with 14 x 40 tiny houses and the endless opportunities they pose.

A 14 x 40 tiny home is on the large end of what most people would call “tiny.” Approaching the size of a barn or cottage, these homes encourage a mindful, stripped-down life, while still offering peace and privacy for a multi-resident dwelling.

From angular, Scandinavian-style spaces to supersized sheds to quaint cottages—a 14 x 40 tiny house has the square footage to take on multiple forms. I think of homes this size as a template for melding your creativity and priorities.

The rectangular shape of a 14 x 40 tiny home usually entails interior living spaces that flow into one another, similar to a railroad apartment or New Orleans-style “shotgun house.”

I’ve noticed that since these are homes with a large, stable footprint, building high is easily managed. Whether this means adding a sleeping loft or two — or even a second floor — is up to you.

14 x 40 tiny homes are big enough for sizable kitchens, roomy living areas, and even a bookshelf or two. That doesn’t mean that design choices don’t need to be carefully considered. When designing a 14 x 40 tiny home, I recommend taking stock of your priorities before diving into a floor plan.

Think about what you’ll be doing in the space. I’ve found that creating an outdoor living area is just as important as what’s on the inside. When thoughtfully considered, it’s possible to configure space outdoors that can be used for most of the year.

Tiny homes of this size can be a palette for adornments like shutters and awnings, the little things that help make a house a home, though many appreciate an industrial-looking simplicity — which also helps you stay on budget.

The increased space for windows in a 14 x 40 tiny home means light and air can flow freely — and you’ll have a great view of the outdoors. For this reason, many tiny homes utilize neutral colors and patterns to keep the inside from feeling too “busy.”

While it might not be the most fun part of a home, going larger on your tiny home footprint means that you have the flexibility to be a little more spacious when designing functional spaces, like the bathroom.

When you’ve decided that this is the size for you, it’s time to find a builder to turn your blueprints into brilliant reality. Or you could do what I did and build it yourself, either because you have the expertise or want to learn as you go.
