We”re back with another adorable tiny house, and this time, it could be your tiny house. That”s right, this one is for sale, and it could be yours for a cool $48,000. That sounds like a lot, but it”s nothing for a house.

The brightly colored house is called the Toybox Home, and it was designed by Frank Henderson and Paul Schultz. In all, it has 140 square feet of space, divided into a living area, sleeping loft, kitchen, and bath. Besides being adorable, it also features environmentally conscious elements for an even tinier footprint.

The outside is brightly colored and cheerful.

The white part is thermoplastic, which is very durable, as well as UV- and heat-resistant. This helps regulate the interior temperature without extra power.

The Toybox also features a planter around its base for vegetation. It has its own irrigation system that recycles water from the sinks, so gardening is easy and cuts down on water use. Plenty of windows and a sliding glass door provide ventilation and natural light.

The interior is sleek and modern, and appears much larger than it actually is.

Inside, the modern home features space-saving elements like storage cubes that double as seating. It also has a fold-up table (under the window), whose size can be changed to accommodate one or more people.

The kitchen is compact as well, with the refrigerator and freezer tucked under the sink. The sink is eco-friendly, too, with a low-flow marine faucet to reduce water use.

Extra storage is in the walls, and the far wall here leads to the 20-square-foot bathroom.

Here, we can see the table folded up against the wall to create more space when not in use.

The bathroom itself converts into a shower, all thanks to an extendable faucet.

Simply pull out the faucet, clip it to the wall, and it becomes a shower. The water is then collected and used to irrigate the planter outside. Behind the shower wall, there”s a closet that houses a 20-gallon water heater, as well as space for clothing.

Above the bathroom is the sleeping loft, which can accommodate a king-size mattress.

The three windows provide natural light and fresh air. There”s also a light switch up there so the inhabitants can switch off all the lights in the home without getting out of bed.

If you”re worried about the elements battering this little house, don”t fret. The whole thing is insulated with blown-in fiberglass, and it features radiant floor heating to keep things cozy in cold weather.

Right now, the Toybox is located in Lake Forest, Illinois, and is still on the market. You can see it, as well as other available tiny houses, on Tiny House Listings if you”re thinking of downsizing. You can also see more photos on its official website.
