Meet Alyssa, mother of three adorable redheads and Korallus Tiny Homes co-owner. With husband Danny, they build and rent tiny homes on their dreamy homestead in Colorado. Their flagship design, the Aspen, is a farmhouse tiny house with incredible space-saving stairs. It's named after their 5-year-old little girl.
"It is a small space, it's 24-foot. But you walk inside of it and it doesn't feel small at all. It's very light, bright and homey feel. So you have all the aspects of a normal house, but in a tiny home. And we just wanted people to walk away with, oh, wow, maybe I could live in a tiny house.
So the Aspen tiny house has been on Airbnb since June of 2022, and it is 24-foot long by 8-foot wide, and it was built here on our property in Southwest Colorado. The extra features that we have here, we've got a little lounge space with an umbrella so you can just sit out and enjoy the property, and enjoy the outdoors. We are fully off grid right now."

Inside the Farmhouse Tiny House
The Aspen farmhouse tiny house is a wonderfully space-efficient design with lots of charm. At only 24 feet long, it manages to feel spacious. Korallus achieved this with light colors, a high ceiling, and many windows, including two skylights in the living room.
Behind the kitchen, they created a hallway laundry room. To save the storage space, they chose the washer-dryer combo. Additionally, it features a butcher block counter on top with cabinets above. A perfect space to fold your clothes! Lower cabinets store the inverter and the batteries for the tiny house's solar power system.
Their brilliant spiral staircase is located at the back of the house. It's an exceptionally space-efficient design built onto a bump-out on the trailer hitch. Impressively, this placement doesn't eat up any floor space in the primary tiny home footprint. It allows for more space in the living area as a result. Also, these stairs provide easy walk-up access to the loft.
While the bedroom loft isn't standing height, you can easily sit down on the landing to get into it. It features a queen-sized bed and little storage space. The skylights allow for some incredible stargazing at night.
You can book a night's stay in the Aspen tiny house, located in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado.
