    Where is the slepping area, laundry or layout? I’m having a hard time visualizing this home. Love the sinks and tub. Thanks for sharing.

    Is this intended to be a ‘wet’ bathroom? What happens to the bathroom floor after a few months/years of the water from the shower over spray running down the sides of the corrugated metal where it will inevitably pool on the floor. Regardless of how diligent the person using this shower is about clean-up… there will be dry rot. Of course, a shower curtain will help but still… could have had a much better design. Perhaps there is and we just can’t see it…

      agree. those tin tubs meant for watering chickens and cattle are not long lived. they do corrode and will also rust. perhaps not designer quality, there are nice prefab shower or tub and shower assemblies in fiberglass or acrylic at a modest price.

    I love the lights they are using in their kitchen. The lower cabinets seem nice. I would have liked to have seen either more cabinets or open shelves on the wall for kitchen storage. I have to agree with Tari regarding the bathroom. I feel the bathroom should have some type of shower enclosure. I would be afraid that a few years down the road my floor would have dry rot. If your going to be spending the money you should spend a little extra to protect your floor down the road. On the whole they have a nice tiny home.

    The “skids” thing is an interesting alternative to the “on wheels” approach. I suspect that most houses on wheels are heavier and less portable than their owners think they will be, but they are already loaded on a trailer even if you only move it after you sell it. I am not sure how you would actually move a 12′ x 24′ house that’s on skids…. You’d almost have to somehow pick it up on both ends with a pair of heavy duty fork trucks and sit it on a trailer. It certainly wouldn’t be an easy operation. It might also present more zoning obstacles than if it were on wheels (since it might be considered more “permanent” and as such might require a more substantial foundation. Still, it’s interesting when people try different approaches.

    If the shower curtain were doubled in length it would go around the tub. I’ve seen this with clawfoot tubs in movies and pictures of New York City apartments. Usually I say “Where’s the johnny?” but where is the bed?

    The exterior broadside shot == harmonious blending of texture and color on walls and roof. Restful and inviting. Thumbs up!

    Nice House, hate the skids though….!

    For that much square footage the kitchen should’ve been waaaay more efficient and had a better layout.

    I think that under the ladder there are two bedrooms on the first floor, side by side and looks like another sleeping loft or massive storage overhead. Is there any kind of closets in the bedrooms? There doesn’t seem to be much storage to speak of either. I’m glad they like it but, I would’ve done it differently.

    I don’t get them making an attempt at a nice home and having the already stressed metal roofing as siding. That only gives you about half the life of the tin for siding. I am a farm brat, however I truly would’ve used something else that won’t have to be replaced quite so quickly. Just thinking out loud.

    Love the Kitchen! I like the bathroom except for the shower area,fiberglass Rv shower/tub would be better. Need to show better pictures of this house.

    Pre-built buildings on skids are easily moved. I have Mennonite friends who build pre-built sheds and cabins/small homes. Personally, I have had an 8′ x 10′ shed, a 10′ x 12′ run-in, and a 14′ x 28′ shed moved. It is relatively inexpensive to have them moved, mine cost a couple hundred bucks to move within a 50 mile radius. They have a roll-back truck (like the tow trucks, but heavier duty) where the flatbed tilts down, they hook up chains/cables to the building, lift it slightly, and pull it up on the flatbed of the truck, secure it, and away you go. Unloading is reverse, they tilt the flatbed down where the end/side of the building is to be set and slowly pull the truck flatbed out from under the building, gently placing it on its new foundation/ground. For those wanting a small house in a permanent location, this is great since it can be moved if needed.

    The bathroom is on the right under the loft and I was wondering what the room on the left side under the loft is also. The bathroom appears to be about 5′ x 6′, so that leaves an L-shape on the other side – space for hot water tank, maybe a main floor bedroom – more pics would be good. Like the rustic touches, especially the jar lights!

    All those tin metal sinks and tub will rust soon enough. I wouldn’t want to shower in a rusty bucket.
