Cedar Shake Cottage is a tiny home designed by Austin-based Studio 512.

This 550sf apartment with 320sf footprint was shaped by impervious cover restraints, a tree, and an angled easement. The second floor leans away from the first to improve sight lines between floors and to fit the stair to code. Angled walls integrate a covered porch and outdoor shower. Favorite details/materials include: reclaimed cedar shakes, charred wood flooring, exposed copper plumbing/towel warmer, built-in bed, floating shower bench and bath mirror, stucco walls, Colquitt inspired light fixtures, and reclaimed longleaf pine cabinetry.
