The Ampersand tiny house by Zyl Vardos

Some like their tiny homes modern, others will lean bohemian or even gothic. So far, we’ve been seeing a number of unique, gypsy-esque tiny homes being built by Olympia, Washington’s Zyl Vardos (the word “vardo” refers to the traditional horse-drawn caravans favoured by the nomadic Roma people). Their latest creation is the Ampersand House, a wonderfully laid-back yet tasteful home that’s topped with one of the company’s signature sweeping roofs and punctuated with lots of custom, non-orthogonal windows.

Stepping inside, you can see the emphasis is on the generous, full-height sitting area, which feels quite large compared to other tinys we’ve seen.
