    Just beautiful. The only thing I would change is the loft bedroom. Instead of railing and design pattern at the top. I would have put in a short wall with drawers. You can never have enough storage in a tiny home.

  • Bonnie Ebert October 3, 2017, 12:44 pm

    I want to have this tiny house ,what does it weight,would a H2 Hummer be able pull this with no problem,we go back and fourth to florida,snow birds,

    • James D. October 4, 2017, 10:28 pm

      Hey Bonnie Ebert, I’m not sure how much this weighs but I believe it’s a safe bet to say a definite no…

      Depending on the specific model H2 Hummer you have the max tow capacity ranges from a low of 6600 lbs to a upper max of 8200 lbs, and it’s best to only tow something at least a few thousand pounds lighter than the max tow rating for a margin of safety.

      However, THOWs in the 30 foot size range can easily be over double your max tow capacity and it’s recommended to only tow something at least a few thousand pounds lighter than your max tow capacity for a safety margin as road conditions are rarely always ideal and many things can go wrong like the trailer breaks could fail…

      Even a 16′ THOW can exceed 7000 lbs and light weight materials can only save so much weight on the larger models… It is possible to get a 30′ THOW down to nearly 7000 lbs but generally they weigh a lot more…

    • Tom Osterdock October 5, 2017, 2:09 am

      James is correct as usual on this one. I am planning a 30′ and am looking at an f350 maybe and I want the truck to also carry stuff so will most likely have an f550 or f650 since my stuff is heavy and will have a diesel engine.

      • James D. October 5, 2017, 9:29 pm

        Hey Tom, “Big Truck Big RV” and “MrTruckTV” are two good youtube channels covering truck reviews and different towing scenarios to get a good idea of how each will perform and what to look for, as well as what accessories you may want to get for it…

        “Big Truck Big RV” is presently driving a 2017 F-450 dualy as his daily driver and uses it to tow his large travel trailer… as well as does quite a number of reviews on other trucks and RV’s…

        And MrTruckTV did a review on a F-650 dump truck not too long ago, among the list of trucks he’s reviewed…

        F-450 dually seems a nice balance between towing capacity, traction, great turn radius that you don’t see in most of the other model series, and features.

        While there may be reasons to consider a equivalent Chevy or GMC truck as well, depending on your specific usage scenarios and what specific characteristics you’re looking for… Good to see the comparisons anyway…

        • Tom Osterdock October 6, 2017, 12:45 am

          Thanks James, I will check them out. I am looking at a 450-650. Waiting on weight limits of trailer and trains in the box.

    • Matt October 7, 2017, 4:00 pm

      This would sink an H2 into the ground. A 1 ton pick up would be needed to comfortably pull this around. Probably in the 14,000lb range this trailer is

  • Rik R. October 3, 2017, 1:02 pm

    It looks like a very beautiful home.
    But why does the insides of all of these tiny homes have to be painted white?
    It’s like you’re living in a hospital or something.
    I’m definitely a fan of natural wood myself or some of the warmer tones of paint.
    Make um homie and warm.
    Not so cold and uninviting.

    • James D. October 4, 2017, 10:42 pm

      It’s a psychological design element… Lighter colors can make a space feel more open and bigger than it actually is, while darker colors have the opposite effect…

      So it’s a form of over compensation to try to use as many elements that make the space seem and feel bigger than it is to compensate for the actually small living space…

      This is also why they put in so many windows, add mirrors with strategic placement, tend to use open concept floor plans, etc.

      While opinions vary on wood… Some people can’t have enough wood, but others may not be able to stand anything more than an accent or highlight, or somewhere in-between…

      Fortunately, custom built homes can cater to anyone’s taste… It just won’t appeal the same to everyone who views it, but as long as it fits the owner is what matters…

    • Denise October 6, 2017, 1:01 am

      I agree. If a person wants white, they should have chosen a different material instead of natural wood. You don’t paint over wood. However, another material would be more appropriate. Sadly this seems to be a trend. There is ‘some’ warmth there, but with all that warmth killed by painting over the wood it is somewhat cold.

      Aside from that, the layout is nice, materials quality, and I would love to find out more about that stove.

  • John October 3, 2017, 2:11 pm

    As for loft storage, I’d have simply raised the bed 10″ off the floor and put pull-out draws from the bottom and from the top of the sides.

    Beautiful design overall. I’d be curious to know what intentions–if any–the owners have for taking this beast on the road, and if so, what would be used to pull it and how much it would cost per mile.

  • Mary McGuirk October 3, 2017, 2:35 pm

    so many wonderful things about this…the only thing i didn’t see was a SECOND EXIT. The staircase has the longer seat level tread, and the double step at the top that accommodates sitting at the top and swinging legs over to get up or down…the staircase opens up the dining area VOLUME so it doesn’t feel congested…the CLOSET in the living area…i expect to open the door and find a ladder to access the storage loft…and the built in cabinet at the end of the sofa area is very good if you want to use it as a place to lean but it frees up storage space that a sofa arm would use. the HEAD HEIGHT in the bathroom is vaulted instead of the shortened height over the kitchen…and the bath height even makes the kitchen feel more open…when you look into the bath area it is nice to see the SINK instead of the toilet too.

    Personally I love the decorative grill on the main loft, and especially like the BEAM that seems to be out of the way for heads on the way up, but available for grasp if needed on the way down.

    I don’t see any metal or rock shielding for the fireplace, and i am not a fan of smokey fires in a tiny home just for the sooty messes that are just a given, aren’t they? They only look really nice when they never get used 😉

    • Mary McGuirk October 3, 2017, 2:42 pm

      bottom step should have corners knocked off to reduce accidental bonks. I love the full height pantry that is visible from both sides too. there is SO much storage, in staircase, under sofa, closet and under area to the right of dining too. I do think there are enough windows in the bath area that it would be nicer to have a bit of storage there above the sink with a mirrored vanity for grooming. I do not see mention of an outdoor kitchen or an outdoor shower…both of those are necessities for long term use, since outdoors has to be used more than normal…but the french doors out the living area are fantastic to open up the whole area. GREAT JOB overall…hope some of my suggestions are useful.

    • Mary McGuirk October 3, 2017, 2:44 pm

      does the bottom step push back under the main stairs when not needed?

      • dana October 3, 2017, 4:51 pm

        i am seeing a pet cave behind the first step, that and a high window shelf and overhead bathroom walkway with an access door to the loft says “cat” to me.

        very unique pet accommodations. without the pet, recessing the bottom step would be a great solution.

        • Mary McGuirk October 3, 2017, 5:41 pm

          thanks…did i miss that, or is that you supposition? i like your idea that the bathroom height is for a pet, rofl, you are worse than me. my life revolves around when my dog needs a walk and my cats need food or litter.

      • James D. October 3, 2017, 5:34 pm

        Doesn’t appear to, as Dana mentioned it looks like there’s some pet accommodations in this design…

        However, that first step and the first landing above it have hinges… So they apparently open up for some extra storage…

        Not too much of a space issue as you’d have to step around the wood stove space anyway… The hearth extends out just as far as that step…

    • James D. October 3, 2017, 5:51 pm

      Mary McGuirck, shielding isn’t always obvious or necessary…

      Modern wood stoves can be designed to channel heat and have near zero clearance requirements… Note the shielded tube extending out the back of the stove and into the wall…

      This means most of the heat is being channeled, it’s either being used as a furnace, and is being ducted, or it’s helping to heat the hot water.

      Below the stove is also a hearth, this shields the floor in case anything slips out of the stove while you’re putting in more wood. While the wheel well is just behind it and that’s usually made of steel…

      Even if this wasn’t the case, there are also metal and stone/concrete based products that can be made to look like just about anything. So shielding doesn’t always have to be stick out..

      • Mary McGuirk October 3, 2017, 6:59 pm

        thanks…how about the soot?

        • Helen M Collins October 3, 2017, 7:12 pm

          I doubt soot would be much of a problem, given that the stove pipe is inside and there should be fairly complete burning. My concern would be more for ash dust than soot.

        • James D. October 3, 2017, 8:05 pm

          Much like car emissions, modern Wood Stoves have to meet EPA regulations… This started around 1988 and those regulation have been increasing over time and will increase again in 2020, but you can basically find stoves that are over 70% and even over 80% efficient and are thus virtually smokeless…

          To compare, a typical camp fire is only about 15% efficient and puts out a lot of smoke…

          You will still need to clean out the ashes but the flute/chimney may need cleaning only once or twice a year for a model this size…

          Smaller/tinier stoves are a bit less efficient and may require cleaning once every few months… but it’s usually easy and quick…

          Though, the efficiency requires the stove to operate at an ideal temperature range. So when you first start a fire you’ll still have smoke but once it gets fully going then the emissions should become clear…

          There are basically two types… Those that use a catalytic converter, much like car exhaust, or those that use gasification/secondary burn, which is more common, to combust the smoke…

          Over 70% of the heat output for a secondary burn stove comes from the secondary burn as well, which also allows these stoves to require less fuel and to make that fuel last longer… So a stove this size can still probably last all night without needing to refuel it…

          Though, smaller models like the Cubic Mini Cub stove will still require refueling every few hours but that’s mainly because it uses really tiny pieces of wood for fuel…

    • James D. October 3, 2017, 6:06 pm

      Though, depending on the model wood stove… That tubing could alternatively be the fresh air intake, which allows the stove to be used without effecting the interior air… The connection point would still need to be shielded as to not damage the tubing, so that would still prevent most of the heat from radiating out the back of the stove and towards the wall.

      Leaving just the flute/chimney pipe as the last point where heat can radiate significantly but it’s a good distance from the wall and double to triple piping can ensure most of the heat goes out the top and only really needs to be shielded where it goes through the roof… which that large metal assembly towards the top assures…

      • Helen M Collins October 3, 2017, 7:15 pm

        I have heated with wood using fresh air and interior air. The problem with fresh air, where it gets really cold, is cold infiltration when there is no fire in the stove. I much prefer interior air intake.

        • James D. October 4, 2017, 11:22 pm

          There are pros and cons to both exterior and interior air intake…

          In houses that are designed to be air tight, interior air intake can be problematic and it’s primarily a option for a “leaky” house that can allow air flow…

          Houses that allow interior air in-take means you’ll pulling air into the house and that is it’s own form of cold air infiltration but this is countered by the heat given off by the stove and may allow it to be used for more of the year as tiny houses can be easy to overheat… but can mean the house may not have as good an insulation value, which can be a problem when not running the wood stove…

          There’s also preference for interior air intake because it allows continuously bringing in fresh air into the house, and not need a powered venting system to do it… Additionally, some like the smell of certain woods as they burn and not just watch the fire… and some just prefer a breathable house rather than one made to be extremely air tight.

          Conversely, those who may not be running the stove all the time or simply prefer an air tight house means interior air intake may not be a option and exterior air intake would then be safer and easier to maintain.

          A well build modern stove designed for exterior intake will usually be able to avoid cold air filtration by simply being well sealed and/or have the ability to open and close the air vents.

          The main consistent issue is efficiency can be effected when very cold air is running through the stove and it can make it harder for the stove to reach the ideal temperature range needed for it to run at peak efficiency… But otherwise the issues of an exterior air vent can be mitigated and controlled, which allows for a more air tight house for better insulation value.

          This just all ties into how the house is designed, whether you use active venting, HRV/ERV HVAC systems, breathable or air tight membranes, etc.

          So, depending on preference, it’s best to consider the design of the wood stove as you’re designing the house and thus better integrate it into how it functions…

          While there are stoves that can use both options and you can simply switch between exterior and interior air intakes…

  • BB October 3, 2017, 4:26 pm

    Every time I see a new model Mint Tiny House, I can’t believe how awesome it is and I think they can’t possibly improve on it. Yet, they continue to do so. This is their best so far. Love it! When can I move in?

  • Helen M Collins October 3, 2017, 7:19 pm

    I would love to see a spiral staircase to get to the loft. It would allow for plenty of storage, and have same-height risers for all steps, which would help with fewer mis-steps/accidents.
    That double step at the top is a total stopper for me.

    • James D. October 4, 2017, 11:40 pm

      The double step is to make it easier to get in and out of the loft, since you can’t easily just walk in and out of it because of the low headroom in the loft… Remember, you’re transitioning between a full height and less than half height space.

      It’s intended to be like slipping in and out of a sitting height bed, you’re suppose to sit and slide in or out and not have to crouch/walk or try to move at an uncomfortable angle along the stairs… Add, designs that extend that standing platform into the loft space can give you a standing headroom space that can allow you to stand without needing to go down all the way to the ground floor.

      While spiral stairs usually aren’t used for storage, just a smaller footprint to place the stairs. Besides, the amount of storage would be less than what straight stairs would provide as you’re covering a smaller area, which can also be blocked by overlap and less usable total space beneath each tread, with a spiral staircase.

      That said, they are definitely an alternative to a ladder, and taking up less space than straight stairs gives more options as to how they can be placed and how that can effect the floor plan…

  • Marsha Cowan October 3, 2017, 11:41 pm

    Very, very nice! Oh so beautiful. Love the bath. . .

  • Tom Osterdock October 4, 2017, 3:01 am

    I like this one a lot. It is very close to what I am designing. They have steel framing available and their pricing is very good. Might be good to see what options they offer.

  • Joe October 6, 2017, 4:08 pm

    I hear so many comments on what to use to pull…hears the real answer….anything that exceeds 8k needs a wheel base of at least120 inches.
    You can and I have seen shorter wheelbase for sale pulling and almost all of them have been found as part of accidents on the roads
    The longer wheel base is simply for the stability needed to pull these things…..max gasoline engines can pull and we are talking newer models are 12k but they wouldn’t be practical either for mpg…bottom line you need an f250 min or the equivalent and if it’s a 24 ft or longer diesal engine….if you go 30 ft or longer a dually is best and gooseneck even better….im about safety first….why spend 1000s to then find it turned over on the road or worse you dead or someone else……the pulling vehicle is just as important…if you don’t have it or can’t spend the money…rent it or borrow it.

  • Carol October 6, 2017, 6:01 pm

    I love the decorative grill on the main loft, the big sink and all the White walls!
    What I don’t like is the kitchen area, way tooo big.
    We have a TH (10 x 14) and use less than 1/5 of this one and it fits everything we own andit has a tiny frig (3.2) . I would much rather have a closet to hang clothes. In our TH we took out kitchen cabinets and put in a clothing closet, much better use of space.
    I am older and would need a first floor bedroom. With taking out some of the kitchen cabinets and the table you could add in a bedroom. This one is 30′ long versus ours at 14′ and we have a 1st floor bedroom.

  • sara October 7, 2017, 5:19 am

    I like it. It’s pretty. But for long term, I’d need a downstairs bedroom, because, well, I’m getting old.

  • Bluesgirl October 7, 2017, 12:23 pm

    Really like Your “big” Tiny House.
    I would not have that door taking up space, You could add porch that folds up when in transport…how I would build that is on piano hinges for strength. Also I would try to retrofit into that washroom a seated jets tub, for all the TLC people need to unwind after a day, some stressful, some days not so much 🙂
    Either of these would benefit this amazingly well designed Tiny House I would be proud to live in and call home, anywhere.
    Nicely done is what I think. Good Job Guys

  • Rob October 8, 2017, 8:20 am

    Very nice. I would probably trip over the bottom step and I’m not really a fan of built in seating but this is nice.
