Amsterdam 24 by Transcend Tiny Homes

This is the sleek and stylish Amsterdam 24 by Transcend Tiny Homes in Tennessee.

This home has a lot of great features, but by far the coolest is the HUGE closet area with plenty of hanging storage — it’s what we’ve all been waiting for! Besides that, you get a great kitchen, spacious loft bedroom and luxurious bathroom, as well as a comfy-looking living area.

I like the look of the exterior!

I’m immediately drawn in by the tile backsplash.

Is it just me or does that couch look extra cozy?

Time for dinner!

    Only problem as far as I can tell, (and it’s an admittedly small one), is you’d need to move the sofa to access much of the closet storage. Even if you replaced the folding doors with sliders, the drawers on the right would be blocked, but that could always be seasonal storage. Otherwise, a great layout, great use of space and just overall, great! Go Ikea!

  • Dixie Whitley March 18, 2017, 7:04 pm

    One of the best I have seen—add4-6 ft and give me a downstairs bed and I would love it! Use the upstairs for company. And storage.

    • Sgmaps March 18, 2017, 10:08 pm

      Great suggestions and worth the extra $10K that would cost, but that does look like a very large loft.

    • Michael March 19, 2017, 12:33 am

      They have a 32′ model with free standing bed, a walk through bath I would put the kitchen to the other end and living space to the middle.

      • Randy from Transcend March 19, 2017, 12:30 pm

        We are working on a wider model with a cool trundle bed (No Loft). Should be out soon. However, it is 12ft wide, so it is not a THOW, it is for permanent install. But the real advantage is that it’s IBC code compliant, and it covers all accessory dwelling unit requirements for use in urban settings that have ADU provisions.

        • Cyndi ann March 22, 2017, 2:01 pm

          I really like all of this Tiny. I do not need such large w/d and just the apt size ‘fridge would do fine. As you say Randy about loft meaning possibly wider?, no loft is fine, but then, I am OK with just convertible sleeping down with narrowing closet space. Love the bath, great shower. 🙂

        • Yvonne Marmet March 22, 2017, 2:27 pm

          Cyndi ann all your ideas are easy to accomplish, can we help you further?

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN March 18, 2017, 7:31 pm

    I love it, and almost makes me want to move to Amsterdam…! And I know Amsterdam is predisposed to living tiny, I can see where these tiny houses will be a perfect for their life style…

    • Sgmaps March 18, 2017, 10:05 pm

      I may be wrong of course, but I got the impression that Amsterdam was only the model name of it, because it is built by Transcend Tiny Homes in Tennessee. In any case, even though this has a higher price tag, I feel this one is worth it. Very nice finishes, well laid out , my preference would be for stairs due to mobility issues, otherwise, I could definitely live there be very happy and not feel deprived of a nice home and have all the necessary amenities.

      • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN March 19, 2017, 6:33 am

        Nope you are absolutely correct, I made a big boo boo, I mistaken the house’s name for it’s origin, as I thought they were doing a story on tiny houses in Amsterdam, as we just seen one recently in France… So I thank you for pointing out my error… And who knows maybe one day we will read a story on a tiny house from Amsterdam as well as other countries.. So Thank you….!

    • bob faske March 18, 2017, 10:11 pm

      had to look a bit but this builder is located in oklahoma. nice design, a bit pricey, but weight is very light compared to convenentional construction. tow vehicle and location restrictions are big considerations in tiny world…

      • Randy Marmet March 19, 2017, 2:36 pm

        Thanks bob, for the keen observation. We have worked extremely hard to make way for modern lightweight construction. It means you can spend less on a truck to tow with because the truck does not need such a heavy capacity. By building this way we are also able to disconnect all the thermal bridging. It makes for an airtight, super efficient wall structure. So far, the refridgerator running is helping to keep the house warm in the cold.

  • keepyourpower March 18, 2017, 7:42 pm

    I wonder how comfortable that pull out bed is? Is there a way to make sure it has an orthopedic mattress?
    I would love to purchase this, but would need some kind of bed downstairs, for a very bad back..thus the question about the pull out bed. Guess I could put a Murphy bed where the sofa is…and have no window there.

    • Randy from Transcend March 19, 2017, 12:34 pm

      The bed that is in the sofa is made by IKEA if you want to check out how it is made. I did not get the immpression that it would be for everyday use. It is more for a few nights, unless your a kid. Sounds like you would need a Tiny with the master bedroom down. We have a lot of requests for that. Currently we have a 32ft model with the beroom down. More to come soon.

  • Sgmaps March 18, 2017, 10:09 pm

    Ummnn-where is the pull out bed please? What I see downstairs is the sectional sofa in 3 pieces , part of which is in front of that Amazing closet

    • Sgmaps March 18, 2017, 10:12 pm

      OOPS-I just reread the description and see that it says Ikea sleeper sofa-wow, that is a well disguised sofa bed. Apologies to keepyourpower.

  • Patricia Chang March 19, 2017, 2:30 am

    Very nice inside, for the most part. I think the refrigerator could be smaller, and stairs with an outside rail added. That would add storage and safety and appeal to a wider range of ages. I would prefer a frosted door on the shower. You could spend your life cleaning a clear one ;or just use an attractive shower curtain with a curved rod. They should have an interior decorator for TH model do something for the wardrobe doors, both to give the sitting area depth and color. To each his own on that. It would be nice to have a skylight in the loft.

    • Yvonne Marmet March 21, 2017, 12:03 pm

      The fridge could be smaller however we have been getting requests for larger food storage. We designed the access to the loft as simple as possible to allow greater room size on the main floor. Stairs typically take up about 6 lateral feet but yes, they can provide storage but in our case they would eliminate the dining area. We have a variety of wardrobe door choices, we chose a neutral scheme to allow the owner to run wild with their personal preferences. Lastly we were striving for low energy use and well sealed windows and have not found a solid roof retains the most energy where a skylight would loose a great deal of energy.

  • Sandi B March 19, 2017, 7:46 am

    This is a great THOW with very innovative storage. I like the size of the refrigerator and length of the counter and also like the induction cook top.
    I might do away with the dining table and do stairs with storage. Other than that, this is a very well thought out unit. The bathroom is a great size and the closet at the end of the living room works well. I might use a roller type shade for the cover of that closet. You could even decorate one or have made from decorative material. That way you would have full access to the closet, would not have to move the storage cubes etc. Certainly something to think about and good ideas to use.

    • Yvonne Marmet March 21, 2017, 12:10 pm

      Good idea on a shade to cover the closet. With both doors sliding easily left and right we tested it for days using the living room for seating, sleeping and dressing and found it easy to use since 90% of the time access to the wardrobe can be completed by not moving anything at all. However, if someone needed to move the seating it slides easily.

  • Dominick Bundy March 19, 2017, 10:41 am

    Best closet setup ever so far in a “tiny house” but what I’m starting to notice that these tiny houses are becoming no so tiny any more. and seem to get bigger and bigger with every presentation.. the bigger the house the more it will cost and before you know it a mortgage will be needed , and we are right back where we started from embracing the rat race of mortgages again to what we were trying to be free from.. the bigger and more space one has the desire to fill it with stuff you don’t need. Just something to think about….

    • Randy from Transcend March 19, 2017, 12:43 pm

      We are finding the the psychological impact of a very small THOW can be trying. 24ft is the smallest one we make right now. We can build for a lesser finished price if needed, but the small lifestyle is SO enhanced with a few extra niceties like high end appliances. We also agree that affordability is important, and we understand that. Finding that balance varies for different people. We are open to discussions of differing lifestyles and budgets.

  • joe March 19, 2017, 5:20 pm

    I think this is a really beautiful tiny home. IKEA has some awesome options for kitchen cabinets and bathroom fixtures that are not outrageously expensive.

  • David Lypchuk March 19, 2017, 5:26 pm

    i am a huge lover of tiny homes. i envision myself in one, one day.

    but until designers start addressing main-floor bedroom design into these tiny homes, they will never gain mass-appeal.

    i do not want to clamber up a ladder, nor do i want to crouch around in my sleeping quarters.

    thank you.

    • Randy Marmet March 19, 2017, 5:42 pm

      We understand and agree with you we have one model with the bedroom on the lower floor right now. We are in development of other models now that have the bedroom on the main floor. We have an advantage for this because we can make a longer home and still not be too heavy because of our lightweight composite construction. Thank you for the comment!

    • oxide March 20, 2017, 9:22 pm

      Please stop expecting these designers to be gods. It’s nearly impossible to fit a first-floor bedroom into a tiny home and still call it tiny. The 400 sq ft park models can put in a 1st floor bedroom easily, but 8.5 foot wide THOWs are just too small. The only way to fit in a 1st floor sleeping area is either go without a living area, or convert the living area to a sleeping area every night.

      • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee March 21, 2017, 7:24 am

        Have to agree with Oxide on this one. Very hard to “do it all.”

  • Danielle DiLisio March 19, 2017, 5:36 pm

    What a great home and the price tag is very reasonable!

  • Rusty Kerr March 19, 2017, 7:49 pm

    Very nice thow, especially like the bathroom, closet, and 30 gallon water heater. I would love it to be 30 feet long for a larger living area and no loft with a 9 foot ceiling. The living area would have a day bed disguised as a sofa.

    • Randy Marmet March 19, 2017, 8:53 pm

      Rusty, I am sure we can build one for you that would accommodate those needs. Actually I like your idea. I think as long as we found a nice convertible sofa bed, then it would be workable. We know of a couple examples of some nice convertible furniture that would work well.

  • Linda Hodges March 19, 2017, 9:32 pm

    There are Murphy beds that have a built in sofa, so if you are willing t0 ditch the window, or have a very small vertical window it is possible. AND the murphy couch slides very easily! Love this house.

    • Randy Marmet March 19, 2017, 9:42 pm

      Linda, you are so right the Murphy bed with the folding couch is an awesome solution. It’s a little on the heavy side and I have not looked at it yet directly but I believe it is built well. Plus, there are a lot of sofa bed options that would work well to and maybe not have to give up the window. It’s exciting to see all the different viewpoints of how this can be done! We have customers asking for these types of things now so as we get pictures of them we will be posting.

  • Nanny M March 20, 2017, 2:54 am

    This is one of the nicest I’ve seen. So many fine touches. I especially appreciate the closet, kitchen storage, bathroom, refrigerator/freezer, washer and dryer and the picture book view when you come in the door. Probably good feng shui. So much like a regular house tucked in a tiny space. Excellent.

  • Elle March 21, 2017, 7:28 am

    Very nice design for this size thow. There’s a pleasing feel about the home. Good kitchen storage with easy access all ’round. Superior! Baths in tiny homes seem more often than not to be an afterthought. This bath looks as if you wouldn’t be bumping your elbows every time you turned around and it has good storage for necessary items. The bedroom, although a loft style, too has that feel of roominess like a real home should.

    If there is a detractor, I’d agree that it’s the closet in the front living area. It’s a great idea for a storage facility and much needed but the obstruction of the sectional every time you use the drawers is a bit of a problem. I use my closet several times a day. If it were obstructed at all it would create a big annoyance. Noticed someone said you could put seasonal clothing in the obstructed drawer area. Although, that would work, it’s not very practical and only provides a “work-around”. The builder noted above that the frig keeps the house warm. I don’t doubt it. That a big frig. Lovely, well designed, good use of available market goods such as Ikea and pleasant color combos.

  • kidcardona March 22, 2017, 4:32 am

    l liked this layout. l am not a fan of ladders, so for me l think switching places of the fridge and makibg it a washer/dryer front loader, in one, would allow for creatively adding stairs. just a thought. over all great job you guys. it is always a pleasure to see different ideas here

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee March 22, 2017, 8:16 am

      Good thoughts 🙂

    • Yvonne March 22, 2017, 8:45 am

      Yes you’re correct that would be a good place to swap a couple items are home being fiberglass wall panels is extremely airtight we would need to find an all-in-one combo washer that vents outside not venting into the house if so that would be a good swap

  • eric March 22, 2017, 6:51 pm

    “Look at the cool towel rack. I need one!”

    Ha ha, omg, those have been around since the 1800’s where they were used to dry tea towels and dish cloths from the heat of a coal fired cooking range, ala woodburner as opposed to an open fireplace. Watch period dramas like Upstairs, Downstairs for confirmation.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee March 27, 2017, 9:11 am

      Just because it’s old doesn’t mean it’s not great 🙂 I feel the same way about wood burning stoves — need one!

      • yvonne March 28, 2017, 11:04 am

        Sorry Natalie, since we are so efficiently air tight a wood stove is not in our immediate future. Fires burn oxygen and need a house that “breathes” to work well.

  • JanneZack March 23, 2017, 10:04 pm

    Wow! Nice.
