The inherent problem with tiny houses is the lack of space (some might argue that it’s the perception of space, rather than the actual volume).  Regardless, here are two easy ways to make any room feel more spacious:

1. Remove clutter (which isn’t easy for most people).

2. Extend the interior space toward the exterior, using windows or doors.  (The trick is to make the glass extend to the corners of the space, instead of simply punching a window in the middle of a wall.)

What you’re seeing here is the interior space created by the assembly of the floor, roof, and wall components.  The cabinetry, furniture, etc. is strategically stored behind the shoji-style screens, as well as below the floor and above the ceiling.  My inspiration: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washitsu
