Oasis Tiny House, clad in teal-painted plywood and a metal roof that's pitched in the front and curved in the rear.

A Brother-Sister Duo Craft a Tiny Home in Hawaii With a Half-Pipe–Inspired Roof

Oasis tiny home was designed and built by Ellie and Dan Madsen of Paradise Tiny Homes in Keaau, Hawaii. The blue cottage was designed to embrace natural light and temperate weather.

The lush surroundings influenced this tiny home. Definitely, it is easy to figure out why.

The pitched portion of the roof creates a high ceiling and an airy aesthetic in the living area, where large windows, including two half-moon windows, facilitate plenty of sunlight.

The curved portion of the roof provides added headspace for the loft-style bedroom. “I really like the bubble windows along the storage stairs,” Dan says. “They match the curvy aspects of the house, and you can put your head inside them and see 180 degrees.”

The sides of the living room also feature two large sliding windows, while a series of smaller openings help brighten up the staircase and bedroom loft.

Oasis Tiny Home Coolest Amenity

But the home’s coolest amenity has to be the operable windows in the kitchen, one side of which opens up to the deck where you can saddle up like its an indoor-outdoor bar.

An elongated kitchen window ties the interior to the outdoor deck and bar area and the landscape beyond.

A Hawaiian mango wood counter and shelving add texture and warmth in the bathroom.

A skylight and live plants in the bathroom shower supply the feeling of bathing outdoors.

An outdoor deck and bar area with a mango wood counter and a massive window create an indoor/outdoor living experience.

“People in Hawaii essentially live on their lanais because of the moderate temperature,” Dan says. “Lanais are key parts of homes in the islands, and they’re even more important in dwellings with limited indoor space.”

Oasis tiny home balanced functionality with aesthetics the whole way through.
