    This home is stunningly beautiful. But for $80k it better be lol.

  • Kathy August 26, 2015, 5:10 pm

    This is almost perfect, I just need a few more feet in the living room to move around-maybe 28ft long would be better for me, but I love the stairs and all the storage – they did a great job putting storage everywhere, it is such a beautiful home. I think it’s definitely worth the price – I would pay 80k!

  • Catherine August 26, 2015, 5:43 pm

    Lovely job! Great looking THOW! Love the tub/shower!
    My guess is that the combination of steel framing, closed cell foam insulation and being entirely off grid has bumped up the price. Those propane appliances are not cheap, not to mention all the solar power equipment.
    I would make one BIG change. I would not have the shed roof over the double doors. Wanting to make the exterior more attractive is not worth the lost space. For example; if that wall went straight up, the 2nd loft would be bigger and it could hold that air-exchanger instead of robbing space from the master bedroom. You also wouldn’t need that post across from the staircase, and the higher ceiling in the “great room” would make it seem much more spacious. I think it is a fine line to walk
    when designing these homes; how to have everything you need without
    making them look congested.

  • JJ August 26, 2015, 6:28 pm

    I agree that the price is way too stiff- particularly for those generic cabinets. It looks too much like a shrunken suburban tract housing, sadly.

  • Diana August 26, 2015, 6:31 pm

    Part of the idea of tiny house living is afford-ability. This is ridiculously expensive. My home cost less than $40k and I have 1280 sf and a lot. No one in their *right* mind should pay this much for a tiny house.

  • kristina nadreau August 26, 2015, 6:47 pm

    the price is commensurate with the equipment. It is nicely done. well designed with good finishes and it is high functioning off grid. this is not cheap.

    • David Feldman August 26, 2015, 8:54 pm

      Hey Alex, these prices are getting a little ridiculous. Most cities and towns won’t allow THs at all. Most RV seasonal parks don’t want them. Banks won’t finance them. And you are lucky to get $.50 on the dollar when you try to sell them.

      How about a THOW competition for best tiny house plan with a projected cost of $50/sq. ft. or $10,000 for 200 sq. ft. WITHOUT the trailer? Let’s get this movement back on track.

      All of the building materials will have to be off the shelf from you local big box store. Perhaps you could crowd-source the rules from your enthusiastic readership. Let’s really take it to the edge of the envelope and see what can be done.

      • Lauren August 26, 2015, 9:20 pm

        Or better yet let’s have one of these ‘ultra’ THOW list a breakdown of the prices of the components-building materials (windows, flooring, lumber, cabinetry), appliances and of course labor (Hours X wage) so people can see what they are paying for. While park model RV manufacturers don’t list every little thing, they will list the prices for options and upgrades. Perhaps this home’s bloated price tag is justified. then again perhaps it is not. It seems to me that the prices of some of these THOW just keep going up and up and up. While you DO get what you pay for, a consumer has the right to know WHAT it is they ARE paying for. Its a nice house but as just one criticism, the in your face exterior framing for all of those windows is truly ugly.

        • Cooltruth October 4, 2015, 6:47 pm

          It looks like somebody had just entirely too much white paint available. I agree it makes the window framing look rather ugly. Those white interior walls would get tedious to look at if you had to spend much time inside. All I’d have to do with my 26′ camper is clean it up and add a wood stove & would have just as good for considerably cheaper. Check around for used campers for the best deals in tiny houses…

      • Mary October 4, 2015, 2:01 pm

        I’m with you David. My 1250 sq. ft., 12 year old, very nice town home in Cartersville, Ga. is appraised at $80,000.

      • Cooltruth October 4, 2015, 6:36 pm

        Off the shelf from the big box store is something that causes the price to go up. Cheaper builds can be had by using recycled woods and building materials whenever possible. New anything raises the cost too high for economy minded buyers.

  • Robert August 26, 2015, 10:42 pm

    There’s no excuse for these ridiculous prices. It doesn’t matter how luxurious it is. It’s tiny, as in less building materials. Not to mention… LAND is the most important factor not being addressed in the THOW movement. Wake up people!

  • Joyce August 26, 2015, 10:43 pm

    Very nicely thought out. Love the stairs with all the storage.

  • Mike August 26, 2015, 11:39 pm

    This is nice but misses the point. Tiny Homes are best described as owner built and somewhere around 200 s/f total or less. I’ve seen a number of triple axle 28 and 30 foot “tiny” homes with every convenience that read a little like a high-end walk in closet. The wheels allow you to move it but you wouldn’t want to travel with one like that or even move every year.

    The idea is to pare your living down to the essentials and live simply, not to have a mini McMansion on wheels.

    • Michelle October 5, 2015, 1:22 am

      “Your” idea of what tiny homes are about, not THE idea. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion about what is needed to be comfortable and what is affordable in their own housing market. In my market, you cannot even buy a dated studio apartment that needs gutting for $80K.

  • Maria August 27, 2015, 7:41 am

    I can’t see paying this much for a tiny house. The whole Tiny house movement was about not having a mortgage. For this price I could have a house on a lot. Which means a house with land brings a better return for your money. Only the rich could afford to buy this house. I have seen a lot of Rich folk buying these as summer homes. That is why the prices have jumped.

  • ev August 27, 2015, 7:57 am

    i see the emergence of more expensive tiny houses as a good thing. To me it means the idea of living more simply is becoming more mainstream. Builders wouldn’t waste time and money making something they didn’t think would sell. Even if it is to be used as a guest house or vacation home I think it’s a positive change that people are embracing the philosophy (or even just testing it out) of living more simply. I think the tiny house market will eventually end up like the wider home market, with a variety of options.

    • David Feldman August 29, 2015, 5:59 pm

      Builders make market judgement mistakes all the time. And they lose their shirts. There will be a shake-out in tiny houses.

  • jaime August 27, 2015, 9:16 am

    when you go up the stairs the roof of the loft slopes down. the lowest part of the loft roof is over the stairs where you want the highest. IMO major design flaw. Its full of MDF too

    • Marcy August 28, 2015, 2:24 pm

      I was at the THJ, and saw this house. Jaime, you are exactly right. I am 5’2″, and I had to scrunch and curve my body to get around the corner to the loft. And Kathy, that really is ALL the living space! No room for even a tiny table or a chair.

      The storage stairs were quite impressive, and the bathroom really useful, but I could not picture actually living in it.

      It was very clear at the Jamboree that a many builders think like builders, not like real estate agents, so they don’t really consider what LIVING in the space will be like.

      Lots was very nice about this place, but if I had that kind of money for a build, a would use it some other builder to maximize every inch and still have all the luxuries.

  • russell August 27, 2015, 10:27 pm

    I think that a man should be able to build his own home. Mine is almost done. It is 6’6″x 14’6″ x7’4″ no loft. Duel wired for solar & wind , 110v . I am a pack rat I find almost everything I need for my little tiny house. 2 counter tops, 2 sinks, 2microwave, small chest freezer, small ref, tons coolers. When I finish it I will send pictures and a break down of parts that I had to get. The trailer was a 700 bucks buy. I took a sold week wielding to it and stripping down to paint again. More to follow.

  • Liz August 29, 2015, 5:10 pm

    I am now living someplace where a home on several acres could cost less than this.
    Good-bye, east coast!

    • Cooltruth October 4, 2015, 6:55 pm

      The land I’m living on cost about a fourth of that price for 17.9 acres. It could hold numerous tiny houses on it…

  • Jack August 30, 2015, 9:26 pm

    The interior looks pretty good. My only criticism is the windows. They are out of scale on the exterior and appear rather haphazard. The window casings are too large for the windows. It should look as pleasing on the outside as it does on the inside.

  • Jusween October 4, 2015, 12:46 pm

    $83,000? Sounds like an upper middle class affectation to me.

  • Jason and Juli October 4, 2015, 2:09 pm

    First of all, I don’t know where some of these people live that can buy 1200 sq ft and a few acres of land! We are in Utah and would be lucky to buy a 900 sq ft house that’s 50 or more years old in a crappy part of town, with almost no land.
    Secondly, what is with the comments about prices and size going against the “idea” of the tiny house movement? Whose idea are you referring to? I wasn’t aware that there are specific rules that were required to be followed to be part of the tiny house club. Everyone’s ideas about tiny living are THEIR ideas of what works for them.
    We just finished our own tiny house and are now living in 363 sq ft. A down size of 2037 sq ft from our previous home. I think I might possibly consider that tiny living, despite the fact that it is built on a triple axle trailer and cost us $137 per sq ft to build. It is not from a kit, we designed and built the entire house on our own other than hiring out the plumbing, roofing and painting due to time constraints.
    Enough of the criticisms of other people’s ideas. And if you think that everything you see on here is still just “a camper trailer” then what are you even looking at these for? The finishes on camper trailers don’t even begin to compare to what goes into some of these tiny homes. Try living in an R.V full time and see how quickly the “nice” R.V begins to fall apart.

  • StevenO October 4, 2015, 3:04 pm

    This is way overpriced. I’m buying a 540 sq.ft. house for $80k right now in Asheville, NC.

  • Kay October 4, 2015, 4:05 pm

    Geez, how many times does he have to say this ‘high end’? Take a look at all that is in it…closets and drawers all over the place. Those drawers are not seen in many TH’s. The built in couch, the bath is wonderful and a great kitchen. Everything is extremely classy and a great job was done all around. I think it would be a great place to live! However, I would choose cheaper items for myself but can understand why others would not. They put the initial money into the place but will still have cheap utilities and less taxes…

  • David October 4, 2015, 8:12 pm

    I must agree with the other. WAY too much. Then one must add cost of property, I can buy a house in Phoenix for so much less.

  • Al October 4, 2015, 8:29 pm

    Priced way too high to be in tiny house market. Too much invested in cost to be competitive. I also bet the two axles at at, or above, their max weight rating.

  • Barbara October 5, 2015, 9:46 am

    Everything in California costs 3 to 4 times more than anywhere else, it seems.

  • Janp October 20, 2015, 4:52 pm

    I look at houses daily in Tennessee which is where I want to move. The cost of this place is high and I guess I like cleaner lines in housing. This looks a little claustrophobic to me . sorry
