Beth is a semi-retired acupuncturist who lives part-time in a beautiful 24′ craftsman tiny home with a downstairs bedroom. For now, she splits her time between the Oregon Coast and Long Island, New York, where she has a 1000-square-foot home/office. Beth loves tiny home community life at Tiny Tranquility, especially because it’s just a block away from the ocean—her happy place. And as she points out, all her neighbors are in good spirits overall because of their dreamy lifestyle.

“It’s a long story on how I got to tiny. I wanted a vacation spot somewhere and thought about doing an RV and getting to travel around a lot. But something about it just didn’t fit for me. And then I came upon the tiny idea, and thought wow that could definitely work. I could definitely pick it up and move it if I wanted to. Not realizing this place was so cool that I could just park it here and never move again and be ok with that and just travel around in a car or my van, and see the rest of it which is what I do. So yeah I’m living the dream,” Beth Nugent.

Truform Tiny built Beth’s beautiful 250-square-foot tiny home. They added a mix of clapboard board with board & batten siding to give a more visually rich exterior texture. The interior is full of impeccable design details, practical features, and lots of efficient storage solutions. Importantly for Beth, her tiny home has two sleeping options for herself and a guest. This includes a roomy loft with a privacy screen that doubles as storage, as well as a semi-enclosed downstairs bedroom. Because the bed space opens to the living room, it can double as a loveseat for guests. It’s a good thing, too, because tiny home community life has definitely meant new friends for Beth!
