A Look at

1965 Tiny Home Is Adorable

We ran across this adorable 1965 tiny home on Redfin that recently sold in California for a very affordable price of $59,000. Here’s a look at the listing:

This meticulously maintained residence boasts recent upgrades, including an enchanting kitchen with freshly painted cabinets seamlessly flowing into a cozy living room. The large bedroom showcases stunning built-in closets and drawers, providing ample storage, while its gorgeous natural wood ceilings and ceiling fan create a soothing ambiance. The bathroom offers generous space and features a separate tub and shower. Outside is a retreat with a beautifully landscaped front, side, and backyard featuring rock ground covering. There is also a covered patio and endless possibilities for a potential vegetable or rose garden.

The owners did a great job keeping all the charm of the 1965 tiny home while still giving it a fresh new look we knew we had to share.

Fresh Look Inside

When it comes to smaller mobile homes like this 1965 tiny home, keeping a good flow is super important. Too much furniture can easily overwhelm a room and make it feel even smaller than it is. This can be tricky, especially if you need seating space for family and friends.

Also, new flooring and paint are game changers when it comes to giving any home a fresh look. This is especially true if the home itself has good bones.

We love that the owners were able to keep the original kitchen cabinets but change them up enough to look new. And the color works perfectly in the space as an accent.

When it came to the bedroom, the owners decided to leave the original charm of the wood ceiling and built-ins that make a home like this 1965 tiny home so special.

An Outdoor Oasis

One of the great things about living in California is that you can do some amazing landscaping, even without grass. Landscape rocks and some well-placed bushes and trees complete the look.

Another plus of this 1965 tiny home is the space that the owners were able to carve out for entertaining and lounging. A covered patio and an extended seating area leave plenty of room for friends.

When it comes to giving older homes a new look, there is no set rule about what changes need to be made. In this case, the owners were able to keep much of the home’s original charm but were still able to give the home a fresh look.
