My favorite, commercially constructed, tiny house actually has stairs (which provides extra storage) and a full size washer and dryer designed into it. You can find it on the Tiny Green Cabin's website: http://www.tinygreencabins.com . The plan I am in love with is the Wildflower II Base Plan.
Storage issues, storage is tucked into all tiny homes in normally unused spaces, but in this plan the steps to the sleeping loft, shown at the right, have small drawers added in the rise.
Of course, you have to adopt a minimalist mind set to make it work. That is really harder than you might think, since living minimally is in direct opposition to what we have been raised to believe is a sign of success in main-stream America.
But enough of my ranting, there is an e-course available for any of you really serious about downsizing, de-cluttering, and choosing to live minimally. http://tinyhouseblog.com/announcement/tiny-transition-downsizing-e-course/ is a place to begin.
