That's almost excessive compared to Derek “Deek” Diedricksen's 40 square foot "Cub" shown on the Tiny House Blog, It has some very clever features; the side wall folds down, turning the whole thing into a porch; there will be a bathroom added to the trailer tongue. It's built mostly from materials found at the side of the road or bought at garage sales, although he splurged on two of the windows. © Matt Carroll via the Tiny House Blog Eventually, aside from the bathroom I’ve already planned, I’m going to add another small, hollow, storage bed-couch combo down below, and most likely add some shelved storage that will double as steps to the bunk, a place to hide goods, and a small cook surface (not the part you’ll step on). The bathroom, I might add, will be accessed from the outside of “The Cub” by a different entrance, seeing as this structure is so small, and you wouldn’t want to be enclosed with a toilet in only 40 square feet.
