It's Not Larger than a Shipping Container, but It's Comfy Enough to Host a King

This "550 Sq. Ft. Modern Prefab House In Spain" is a tiny house house that is located in Alicante, Spain. The tiny prefabricated small house was created and built by architect, Daniel Mart i Prez of DMP Arquitectura and designers, Jurgen Van Weereld and Karin Giesberts. The prefabricated panels of the tiny prefab house helped speed up the construction process by not having to use heavy equipment or tons of labor to build.

To keep costs on the tiny house low the designers went with a rectangular shaped house which at first looks like a shipping container. In this tiny house space there is a master bedroom, second room/study, bathroom and kitchen. With lots of outdoor space for hanging out or dining al fresco. This modern tiny house space is surrounded by great natural views, and is located on the side of a scenic hill. The interior space extends outdoors with an outdoor patio where you can hang out, the patio is simply made of tiny rocks that fit in with the landscape and work perfectly. Lots of windows in the tiny house manage to bring the outdoor in, also making the tiny house feel more spacious. The bathroom feels modern with a floating vanity, grey floors and white walls. You will want to take a look at this great prefab, and share it with your friends.
