Have you ever wondered what it's like to sit or sleep in a tiny house loft? Are you currently debating whether or not to include a loft in your tiny house? Have you wondered what difference an extra few feet can make in a tiny house loft?
I received a request for a tour of the loft in my tiny house, so that everyone can see how big it is when I'm actually inside it. Of course, I was more than happy to record another video, showing you around the loft in my tiny house.
Watch the video below to find out how big the loft is in my tiny house, what space we have up their for our belongings, and how much headspace we have.

How Big is The Loft?
The loft in my tiny house is eleven feet long and the same width as the house, which is about seven and a half feet on the inside. The ladder is attached to the loft using black iron pipe, which makes it nice and secure.
Our eleven foot loft is actually quite a bit longer than most tiny house lofts. This means we have room to sit, get dressed, and put our clothes away in the closets, which are conveniently located right at the end of the loft. One side of the closet contains shelves and the other side contains hanging clothes and a basket.
What's it Like In the Loft?
The bed is a queen size futon mattress and it's actually really comfortable. There's a little bit of space at the end of the bed and about six to eight inches of room either side of the bed, so it really is quite spacious up there. In my tiny house, the dormers are in the loft. They let a lot of light in and provide us with a great view.
There's a good amount of space for my legs and feet when I sit at the head of the bed, where the pillows are. When I'm sitting up in bed, not quite in the middle of the loft, there's about a foot of space above my head. As the roof slopes down towards the side, there's a bit less space, but we don't sit over there because the bed ends before it reaches the edge of the loft.
We've been happy with our decision to make the loft eleven feet long rather than eight feet, which is the length that most tiny house lofts are. With those shorter lofts, the mattress goes pretty much all the way to the end of the loft.
