Building the Magic Mountain Bungalow


UPDATE June 2019: More rain delayed us again! But we are pushing forward! It’s finally warm again and things are flying. Make sure to check out Instagram for updates.

As you know, my husband and I are building a Tiny Home for Airbnb guests. I’ve started calling it the Magic Mountain Bungalow. Not sure if that will “stick” but it’s cute, tiny and super close to Magic Mountain. For now…that’s what I’m going with.

I will mainly share the photos on Instagram if you’d like to keep updated.

We officially broke ground on December 17th, 2018. Shortly after, it started raining.

And it really hasn’t stopped.

For the first time on record, Los Angeles failed to reach 70 degrees in February. We are typically in pools, using air conditioners and at the beach in February. This cold and rainy weather has us confused.

Our Tiny Home Specs

We’ve received lots of questions about what our Tiny Home will include. It took many months of architectural design, hours getting permits, many late nights and lots of deliberation. But this is what we finally settled on.

The Magic Mountain Bungalow will be on a concrete foundation and is exactly 300 square feet. (Most tiny homes are 250-400 square feet so we are right in the middle.)

Ours will sleep 4-6 and will include:

  • Full kitchen
  • King size bed
  • Full Queen size bed
  • Electric fireplace
  • Washer / Dryer
  • Bathroom
  • Large private front patio
  • Natural gas fire pit (Phase 2)

How will all that fit, you ask? Well. You’ll need to stay tuned for the adventures! Once this rain stops we will move fast!
