30′ Abott Model Tiny Home with Downstairs Bedroom

This is the 30′ Abott Model with a downstairs bedroom from Cornerstone Tiny Homes in Florida.


I love how this house addresses some concerns that we hear from many tiny house enthusiasts: It includes a first floor bedroom with a Murphy bed/desk (no climbing!) and a huge closet space with room for hanging clothing and hiding brooms. There’s also a pull-out range above the induction cooktop and a second exit through the bathroom in case of fire or emergency. That and the color scheme is so soothing!

You can purchase this home as both a shell or finished build — get all the details here and be sure to watch the walkthrough on the last page to get a better feel for the space.

Loving that chevron print couch and the feather pillows.


That little table folds down — need to find some cool stools!

This is the TV stand.

I really wish I had a window over my sink. Feels so classic!

Pull-out range hood over the induction cooktop.

    Love the size of this and the Murphy bed (they are a wonderful invention) as well as the bathroom. I do notice the use of drywall board and while I prefer wood paneling, I also wonder if drywall joints aren’t more inclined to cracking due to the additional flexing that likely occurs in a trailer built mobile home.

      It depends on how stiff the structure is… A TH can be built stiff enough to safely handle drywall even after towing for thousands of miles.

      Like one of the reasons to get spray foam insulation, besides the high R-Value, is that it basically glues the whole structure and makes it really stiff and strong…

      SIPs are another way to get very stiff and strong structure… as well as steel framing or just really good design engineering…

      While getting a good trailer is important as well as that’s the foundation that everything else gets built on top of… and you can get options like air suspension for the axles for a smoother ride that will keep the house from bouncing so much…

    I like the separate ground floor bedroom that is missing from many of these THOW. But I don’t understand the cutout in the bedroom? Why not some kind of closet or something.

    Also a little weird that you have to go through the bathroom to get to the porch? Maybe a little variation with the kitchen bathroom to fix that problem.

      The cutout is the closet space… Not all closets have doors… While they’re probably leaving it open because many people like to customize their closets to their needs… Some people put in a bar to hang things, others turn it into a sort of dresser with shelves… Customer may intend to just have a curtain in front of it…

      I agree on the bathroom, though… But the variations would have their own compromises to deal with…

      While mind, designs are limited by the need to keep the whole thing balanced so it can be towed safely… So things like putting everything on one side would unbalance it and make it dangerous to tow…

        Good point, James! Have to consider distribution.

    I love the kitchen counter-top. The other part of the house look clean but kind of disjointed. It may just be the camera though.

      I found the video tour to be helpful to put the pieces together 🙂

    I like the Murphy Bed/working desk combo although there are better solutions available where your working stuff can stay on the desk when you fold the bed down. The space above the bed can be used for closets. It is great for using limited space and then no loft is needed.
    The dormers are useless and I think these costs can be avoided. I don’t see a wardrobe which should be accommodated when a THOW is as big as this one.

      There’s that huge closet area in the bedroom. Just needs a rod to hang things 🙂
