Don't miss this extraordinary, expandable tiny home built to downsize in style

From Canada, from a company called Zero Squared, here comes a logic-defying, telescoping tiny house that is hard to believe, even when you see it. Please, meet the extraordinary Aurora tiny house, a design "changing the tiny home game," Zero Squared proudly proclaim on their Instagram.
This home on wheels is as bold and beautiful inside as it is boxy and baffling on the outside. What did they say in the 1960s? "Mind-blowing, baby." That clearly sums it up.

Rather than wax poetic, let's just see what we can see in this jaw-dropping structure that is garnering lots of praise from the tiny house community where, frankly, jaw-dropping surprises are a way of life.
A tiny house has no space to spare, but this one attempts to do the impossible and create a home that allows you to move around -- rather than just move from one sitting space to another. The Aurora, Zero Squared state on their Facebook site, is 320+ square feet once it's expanded. However, it's still small enough not to require a permit to move it.
Here it is, the full Monty. That's a Murphy bed visible in the room at the right. The couch on the left, meanwhile, gives you a vivid impression of the length of this house.
The pop-out side is basically defined by the couch and the small table to the right of it. You can see in the background, a bathroom and a loft.​
Here's an aerial view of the two pop-outs. The home comes off as not just modern, but futuristic.
Not your average tiny home, the dining room table serves as a desk when needed. The white, wing-backed chairs practically blend in in this photograph, like camouflage.
Look, slap forehead, re-attach jaw.
Is that shower actually large enough for two? Didn't the brochure say "tiny house"?
This is actually a photograph of the bedroom. You'll notice the ladder angled in the foreground on the left side of the photo, which allows access to a storage loft. But where did the bed go? It simply folds up against the wall, like an old-fashioned Murphy bed.

Just because a home is small doesn't mean it has to skimp on design or compromise on style. In fact, this 300 square foot home is filled with elegant touches, chic details and modern decor that adds delight to this little but lovable space.
