McG Loft V2 Tiny House Walkthrough
The entrance to the McG Loft V2 tiny house is located on the short side of one end of the trailer. As you walk into this tiny house, you first notice the large living space, with seating, a fireplace, and windows galore to bring in lots of light. The staircase to the loft sits off to the left, and beyond that is the kitchen.
The Kitchen is separated by two counters, which allows more working space. On one side of the kitchen you have a nice large counter space with a sink and above shelving. Below are cabinet doors for storage and utensils, and to the left of the counter sits the refrigerator. On the opposite side of the kitchen is a pantry underneath the staircase. Next to the pantry is another countertop with a washer/dryer combo underneath. To the right of that sits the stove with a 4 cooktop burner, and full oven.
Past the kitchen, separated by a door, is the bathroom. The bathroom is small, but is laid out in a way that makes it feel spacious. The toilet to the left, which can be septic or composting, in front of you sits the sink, and to the right, the full sized shower.
Last, but certainly not least, the sleeping loft is located above the kitchen/bathroom. It is spacious and perfect for a single person, or a couple. The room is lit up in the day from the many windows, and has plenty of outlets for lights at night.
