Tiny Corner Couch

An amazing friend built me a corner couch for my little house! I've got the cushion's cut to fit, and have the fabric to cover them, but still need to create the covers. I'm not sure if I will pay someone to do that for me since I hate sewing, or if I'll quit being lazy and do it myself since I do know how and it would save me some cash.

 It has storage for multiple things in two separate boxes that form the base. The one box is ventilated and houses my battery bank, charger, charge controller, monitoring equipment, inverter, etc. Basically the guts of the power for my house. The other box (which is separated slightly so nothing can accidentally block the ventilation of all the power equipment) is my storage for extra bedding, blankets, tools, and travel bags. 

Soon there will be an addition that allows me to pull the one back cushion off and lay it flat to widen the seat part, creating a comfy guest bed. I'll add photos of that when it is finished.


  1. What a great addition! Fits in perfectly and looks like a cozy spot to relax and enjoy a good book, or just take in the view!

    1. Thanks, I like it a lot and am super thankful for my friend who built it for me.

  2. Love the couch! I am also envisioning a corner L-shape couch for my tiny house plans but am struggling with the details. If you don't mind me asking, what dimensions did you use for yours?
