How a Barn on a Farm Turned Into a Tiny House

In the early 1990s, the Kasliwal family had the chance to have a grand house with glittering chandeliers, marble sculptures, and a swimming pool. But Mrs. Kasliwal preferred a minimalist home where she could spend time with friends and family.

Despite her wealth, she preferred a simple life

To fulfill his dream, he bought a dilapidated tiny house consisting of a barn and a room on a farm in the desert outside Jaipur. He rebuilt this tiny house in the traditional building style.
The mink house was built on top of the barn.

The tiny house was built on two floors, with an additional floor on top of the original barn. The barn was thoroughly cleaned and the whole structure was painted white. The entrance of the house is designed as a living room. The original stone floors of the barn are still intact on the floor. It has a very aesthetic appearance. It has increased the value of the house one more time. The furniture in this section between the kitchen and the bedroom dates from the 19th century. The shelves on the walls are specially made for some antique objects.

The red limestone in the bathroom requires a special skill

The bathroom is clad in red limestone, a Rajasthani material. For this, local craftsmen were used to making the interior. The washbasin and mirror on the cabinet are made of the same limestone date from 1900. It was bought from an antique shop in Jodhpur.
