This Tiny Home in Calgary is Packed With Big, Budget-Friendly Design Moves

When Amy Highton and her husband Jordan – she’s a photographer, he’s a constructor manager – first stumbled upon their super tiny house, it was a total snore. The cottage by the railway tracks, situated in Calgary’s oldest community of Inglewood and Ramsay, was “two rooms wide,” as Amy describes it, and felt basic.  Undeterred, the couple (who have renovated three houses together) worked over six months to turn it into a stylish, art-filled pad for their pack: sons Sullivan, 11, and Flynn, 9; their dog, June, and cat, Wilder. Incredibly enough, the project came together with modest materials and DIY gusto. Those wraparound shelves! That wood-panelled foyer with skateboard parking! So many curves! Keep flipping to read about this family’s inspiring renovation journey. Pssst… check out the video tour here.
