    Best tiny home design I’ve seen. Amazing use of space and great storage solutions. I’d love to have it.

    That price seems outrageous. People want tiny houses because they want something affordable. They could get a nice 42ft park model w 3 slides for 25,000

      Then buy a park model. I don’t want a tiny house ‘because I want something affordable’. I want a small living space that I can own outright, without making any sacrifices. This is a beautiful, high quality house that I would be proud to own. Much more proud than owning a park model.

    This home’s design plan was very well thought out. It has convenient items like the washing machine, compost toilet, moveable mirror, sliding door, front steps, hidden hot water heater, slide out waste baskets, refrigerator and toaster oven. The king size bed space is a real plus and also the attractive heater that reminds you of a fire place. Also the two fans for the kitchen and bathroom are good for keeping the small home fresh. The flooring is beautiful and the closets optimize the space. I would probably want to make the couch a little more comfortable and also add a portable solar panel to the home.

    This is a beautiful home! I agree with the previous commenters- the design is wonderful, the storage possibilities are amazing! It’s like you were listening to my thoughts about every other tiny home I have seen… LOVE that it has a washer/dryer!!!!
    The only thing I might do differently is put dormers in the loft. Little less claustrophobic…
    The price seems high if you look at price per square foot, but if you compare to some of the other tiny houses, it is in the ballpark.
    One more to add to my wish list.

    This is lovely, but it is not a two bedroom like Tubleweed’s Lusby that costs 5k less…

      You bring up some great points. Thanks for your comment. The second bedroom is also the living room couch (dual purpose) which is longer than a twin bed but a little less width than a twin bed, we also have an option to turn the couch into a queen size bed. I believe the house you’re comparing this to is an 18 foot long trailer compared to this house which is built upon a 24 foot trailer. 33% larger home with more built-in options for an extra 10% cost. If you eliminate the TV you would bring the price down to $53,500. If you eliminate other options/upgrades (e.g. couch, desk, etc.) the cost will come down even more. Our website will be up soon giving more details on options.

    Oops- it’s a washer, not a w/d combo. Still a really nice layout and beautiful finishes. Just got to figure out a clothesline…

    I keep coming back here. Watched the video three times now. I just really like this house. Not sure about the honkin’ big TV, but everything else is almost perfect.

    Very nice use of space and wood. Is it insulated? What is the footprint? What is the weight?
    Thanks, Gerrie

      The footprint of the house is 24′x8′. The house is insulated better than a standard code built house which is usually R-11, where as this house is insulated to R-16 and the floor is rated at R-21. The house weighs in at 6500 lbs.

    Love this! I’m looking to buy a tiny house and moving to Holland, MI this fall or spring, however I would like something more basic for much less. I would opt for more open space in the living room area with less storage and frills to save money. Can’t wait to see what options you will have available.

    Love the house. Would rather have bookcases instead of the 2clsets up front, no tv and a sky light over the bed so I can see the stars @nigth.
    Now just need to save… A bit over price …
    Thank you..

    My wife grew up in Holland and used to live on Ottawa Beach Road! This is the best tiny house I’ve seen online. Have you sold it yet? If not do you offer in-person walk through tours?

    Any idea how this compares to a trailer in regard to the gassing off of chemicals? I’ve got bad allergies and I know people with allergies have a hard time in a trailer. Are any of the same prefab materials used in a tiny house?

      The house is built with exactly this in mind. The house is completely non-toxic. The house is built with non-toxic finishes and all solid wood interior, to avoid cheap toxic materials like particle board which off-gas a lot of urea-formaldehyde.

    I have been looking at little houses for 10 years or so. I spent two years living in a 400 sq ft cob cottage (completely off the grid) several years ago. Once I moved in, I discovered a number of things that I would have done differently. Your design actually has more functional space than the 400 sq ft that I lived in. Like some of the other people who have commented, there are a few things I would do differently to fit my specific needs better, but you have also added some details I’ve never thought of. Bravo on one of the nicest renderings I have seen.

    I LOVE the little laundry. I’ve never seen that in a tiny home before! This is by far the most thought out all inclusive design I’ve seen so far.

    Great tiny house design and build! Is it easily movable, can you use it an RV park, and would you recommend a tiny house like this for someone that will be moving around quite a bit? Thanks! Great work!

    Bravo!! Nicely done. This is beyond clever in the storage department. I love many of your great ideas, like the pull out trash and recycle bins, the use of awning style windows, especially in the gable ends; unless its raining sideways, awning windows can be opened for ventilation even in the rain. My dog would die of claustrophobia in that hidden “dog bed” space, BUT my rolling cart of craft supplies will fit admirably!! Best of all is your choice of appliances. I have been wondering when an ice cream lover would come along and see that a tiny combo refrig-freezer is pretty worthless if you wanted room to keep frozen foods or make more than 6 ice cubes. A separate freezer is ideal. That Kitchen Aid oven is so much more than a simple toaster oven, and can hold a 12′ pizza! (The Breville oven is equally terrific.) And how could I not mention the little washer. Alas I can’t buy this house because I can’t use the loft ladder. I have to have a look at the main level sofa conversion to a bed. I will keep watching for future photos of this option. Again, Bravo!!

    I like the general design and layout, but the placement of an 8,000+ BTU marine heater less than 6 inches from the built-ins designed for expensive electronics seems like a questionable choice. Is there an option to get a mini-split ductless heat pump instead?
