The Treasures You’ll Find in a Teacup

May 17, 2022

Long story short: we've worked really hard to make sure that every inch of your Teacup is serving you, and today, we'd like to tell you about a few of the "Easter egg" features in our builds that we're most proud of. (Easter egg- see what we did there?)


So without further ado, here are some things to look for!


  1. Places to Set the Small Stuff.


People tend to get hung up on the big stuff when it comes to storage. Customers want to know where they will store their sporting equipment, dog kennel, and beloved air fryer. And while we have plenty of space for those things, here at Teacup, we want you to know that we've taken it upon ourselves to think through the little things too.


We know that having dedicated, easy-to-access spaces for things like coats, keys, purses, dog leashes, and shoes will make or break your experience of small-space living. So why is this the case? Well, let us introduce you to the concept of "Rubix cubing." 

The last thing you want to be doing in a tiny is Rubix cubing. Rubix-cubing is when you have to take your space apart every time you want to access something. It's to be avoided at all costs- especially for the items you'll want to access regularly! So here are some ways we keep things simple.

You'll notice that in our storage stair option, we have purposely built in little cubbies. This makes it a super easy place to store anything you might want to grab on your way out the door. Don't want to see what's there? Slide-out baskets solve that problem instantly!  Check this out in our Margo plan, where we added the stairs to the main loft.

We think the stairs are pretty cool, but The Margo's small-item storage doesn't end there! The added mantle beam above the fireplace in our client's model is an excellent place to store what we like to call 'functional art.' It's the perfect place for things like a bottle of champagne, a candle, or an antique clock. Anything that looks good and you'll want to use regularly!

 We have to move on, but here are just a few rapid-fire examples of other small space storage you'll find in The Margo: 

-The toe-kick cabinet  leading into the bedroom

-The space above the refrigerator

-The built-in wall shelf next to the toilet

-And the full 4" edge all the way around the bathtub

  1.  Light & Lightness.


You'll notice some high windows in our Ruby Model- ones you probably won't ever see out of. So why did we include them? Simple. They provide insane light.  


Our dining space options play out differently in each of our models. For instance, in one Custom Rubyyou will find an actual, full dining table. If your style is a little more casual, however, the breakfast bar in The Margo could be just the ticket. 


Looking to split the difference? We've got that covered too! The TagishThe UMI, and The Safe Haven all have L-shaped kitchen counters that pull double duty as workspaces and family dinner tables. Bon appétit!


We hope you have enjoyed discovering these Teacup Easter eggs as much as we enjoyed tucking them into our builds! Easter is about more than eggs and chocolate, though, it's truly a season of rebirth, and at the end of the day, that's what we aspire to give when we turn over the keys to a new tiny house owner.

Most people who bring a tiny cottage, cabin or house into their lives will tell you that doing so marked a turning point. This is because a tiny will bring you closer to what you value faster than just about anything on Earth. And if you don't believe us, we encourage you to hear what other Teacup owners are saying.

So, if you feel ready for a season of rebirth in your life, we have just the thing. Will you go for The UMI? The Tagish? Or maybe you just need to look at everything one more time. Whichever model you choose, rest assured, there will be plenty of Easter eggs!

Until next time,
