Just when you think you’ve seen the most peculiar tiny house, another one appears to surprise you. This double-decker tiny home was built around the family’s most prized possession: an heirloom whiskey still. Hidden within a copper-topped table supporting the stove, the still’s quirky curves seemingly inspired the home’s whimsical angles and arches.

Designed and built by Daniel Weddle of Carpenter Owl, the exterior is clad entirely in walnut and trimmed with cedar. The roof materials were reclaimed from two older buildings and rolled flat with a truck. Inside, the home is dominated by wood paneling and brimming with design details. Each individual light fixture was hand-carved. Rustic metal fixtures complement a copper-framed porthole window.

It took 16 crew members four months to build the 22-foot-long home, including the 150-square-foot second-floor deck, which holds a luxurious soaking tub and a built-in table. The deck is accessed via an exterior spiral staircase, or from a secret door in the sleeping loft, hidden behind a drawing.

The home weighs roughly 11,000 and has a price tag of $85,000.
