This 410-square-foot tiny home designed by Texas-based Plum Construction, is located a few blocks from the beach in Galveston, Texas, and is known as LaLa’s Seaesta. It features reclaimed wood and has a secret patio. The gable decoration in the front of the house is constructed from reclaimed cypress wood from a nearby house that dates back 120 years.
The full kitchen contains custom marble countertops and a vintage-style refrigerator. The dining nook converts into a full-sized bed. The sofa was given a second life through reupholstering.
There is an 80-square-foot interior loft accessible by ladder, which has a system to stop it from falling and keep it flush against the wall while not in use.
The wall treatment in the main bedroom was made of old beadboard salvaged from a 100-year-old building in downtown Galveston.
The hidden gem in this tiny home is the large patio underneath. The patio has several swings, a hammock, a bar, an outdoor shower for rinsing off after the beach, a sitting area, electrical outlets for a fan or watching TV and, of course, the lovely swinging bed made from two salvaged doors. Century-old reclaimed wood was also used in the construction of the bar and swings.
LaLa’s Seaesta is available for rent on Airbnb.
