    In my opinion, this is probably one of the most efficient tiny house designs I’ve seen. Such a good use of space. I really love the closet and the way the cook top and toaster oven slide. That’s PERFECT! This is a great design.

    • Alex February 28, 2014, 6:35 pm

      Thanks Julie. I agree! One of my favorite designs on wheels. They did a great job.

    • elizabeth September 22, 2014, 6:47 pm

      My thoughts exactly Julie, wonderfully designed, just like the kinds of things I would want in my next place. Great food for thought, thanks Alex.

  • Beth DeRoos February 28, 2014, 6:14 pm

    WOW. So well laid out and the kitchen has everything I would need. Love that the sleeping loft has windows. I need windows. And a real toilet and shower set up PLUS an all in one washer/dryer. Love it!! I might white wash the wood walls simply because I need white walls or what I call a really airey feeling place.

  • Susannah February 28, 2014, 7:14 pm

    Love this design! Especially the kitchen, with the slide-out cook top and microwave, although I think I would put the microwave above the cooktop, about eye level; it can still function pushed back in, so it wouldn’t get in the way of cooking.

    And I like the idea of the closet and bathroom right at the door. A lot of the time, when you’re living in a small space, is spent outside. In my case, it would be gardening, tending animals, etc. Or it would be pouring rain. With the bathroom and closet closest to the door, there is no need to track mud and dripping jackets across the main room.

    Also: the table behind the sofa; it cuts the space up into “rooms” without inducing claustrophobia, and looks less scattered. Good plan!

  • hunter February 28, 2014, 8:23 pm

    Now if I could figure out a floor plan that would have enough room for me and two dogs one a husky the other a cocka-poo plus 4 cats & a bird. I love this design. so well thought out. wonderful execution. love the “clean” look of it all. Sigh……………..

    • Annie jane March 1, 2014, 6:08 am

      Build them a tiny house too – right next to yours- make a tunnel connecting the two – that would be cool

  • Jake Levi March 1, 2014, 8:01 am

    Very nice and well planned. I’d make only a couple changes but I could live in this one just as is. I tend to off grid designs, a couple changes in this could do it. Adding a wood stove, composting toilet.

    How much insulation is there in it?

  • LaMar Alexander LaMar March 1, 2014, 8:49 am

    Good floor plan and use of space. I would be concerned about sliding hot appliances back into wood shelves. Looks like you could gain 3 more feet of interior space by eliminating that porch. You can always put a detachable porch in the back of the truck and set it up when you are parked. The shower on opposite ends from the kitchen means more plumbing and drain issues.

    LaMar

    • elizabeth September 22, 2014, 7:01 pm

      Good point about the appliances. A safer alternative might be to tile the shelves and enclosures. But even then, contentious cooks would ensure all small appliances sit out until cool and are always unplugged when not in use. I’ve had two toaster ovens catch fire without even being turned on, just plugged in. (Thankfully I was present with fire extinguishers both times.) This was some years ago; I think the mfgrs have improved quality, but you can never be too safe.

  • Tracy March 1, 2014, 8:54 am

    Hello, I live in Raleigh and would like to come see the Tiny Homes that you have built. I have been planning one for 2 years. Thank you so much! Tracy Brown

  • Liane March 1, 2014, 8:55 am

    Very nice. I think this is the first time I’ve seen a loveseat, comfy chair and ottoman in a tiny home space. Good layout with the bathroom and closet at the front and away from kitchen area. Excellent kitchen with pull out shelves for cooking appliances. Brilliant! Lots of light and looks so inviting.

  • Cathy March 1, 2014, 8:56 am

    I would swap the locations of the washer-dryer and refrigerator. You would need access to the fridge when you are cooking and the pull out pantry is blocking that. Otherwise, very cool!!

    • Maria March 2, 2014, 4:23 pm

      I agree with you Cathy. I would put the washer-dryer across from the pantry. Also I would put the cook top on the counter above the frig and put a shelf up above that to put a microwave. Could you not put in louver doors for closet and bathroom?

  • genevieve March 1, 2014, 8:57 am

    This is awesome! I love it! So organized from the start! I am very impressed with the design, especially the living room windows.

  • Bill Burgess March 1, 2014, 11:27 am

    I would like to see the under sink area developed a little more. I saw a nice one drawer D/W that would work well under the sink and a few custom drawers would as well, something with legs.

    • Lisa E. November 9, 2014, 9:45 am

      I agree. An under counter dishwasher is already in my TH plan.

  • Corina Rose March 1, 2014, 12:04 pm

    Love the design! The kitchen has elbow room!
    I would replace the tiny fridge with an 8cuft fridge from Danby. Mine has a freezer in the lower half. Much more functional for full time living. Also the washer/dryer combo, while in theory sounds great, they take a looooong time to do one load of laundry. I have a small, more like tiny washing machine that hooks up to th e sink which I love. One can get a tiny dryer which might be my next investment, but for now I hang clothes next to the wood stove. Since the loads are small, and I use a spinner to get the extra water out, does not take long to dry.
    One can get a two person dishwasher that also hooks up to the sink
    Love the closet and the bath although I do still prefer a composting toilet.
    Although I don’t live in a tiny house, I live in a yurt, I love living small!

  • goJogo of Texas March 1, 2014, 1:38 pm

    Like most, I think this is one of the best designs I seen. Space used wisely! I especially like the restroom on opposite end from the kitchen also. I’m not a professional builder, but I do know what I like. I’m an ex-military cook and one of the things we had to do when we camp outside was put the latrine downhill and downwind of the kitchen. It’s a sanitary factor that I have grown to appreciate. I would change just a couple things too, only because “I am older and have some physical limits. Like, I would figure out some kind of way to put the frig on a counter, that’s too low for me, because if I get down there to get some food I probably would just sit on down on the floor and enjoy the food there, lol. I would switch the hot plate too and then add a support leg to the hot place slide out to have the confidence the slide out could support the weight while cooking. I also would add a metal pole going across the room parallel to loft, to provide a quick exit from both lofts. I got this idea from the military when they made us climb those tall towers, (they were shape like square table shack on top on each other) with no stairs, in boot camp. One of the options to get down was this horizontal pole. You would lay flat on your stomach and look down under the platform and you could see it just right for your hands to grab and swing your body down to a hanging position then drop to your feet on the level below. I was fine going up but, when it came time, to go back down I was terrified. Then I saw someone use the pole and was comfortable using it to come down. It even made it fun! I never forgot those poles. I could be still up there till this day if it wasn’t for those poles, lol. I did not mean to write a book. I usually don’t write anything I just wound look and keep going. I love looking at everyone’s great ideas that I hope to use in the near future. But this time I saw the bathroom on the other end and just had to tell you ”JOB WELL DONE”! Maybe if I ever get where I could afford to build one or more of these I will definitely give you a call! I would build at least two or three if the building codes would allow that many on one property. To use in my dream small business plan that would involve Tiny Homes when I retire from present job. I also LOVE tools so I would like to help with building them in some way. I do have one question. I notice the hot water heater under the sink but I did not ‘I spy’ anything used to heat/cool the home, what are you using to heat/cool the home? Thanks for sharing and God Bless! goJogo of Texas

  • Princess Mom March 1, 2014, 4:19 pm

    Like the others, I love the kitchen design. I wouldn’t worry about sliding a hot appliance in to wooden shelving. Just leave it out until it’s cool. I think a fold-down leg to steady it, such as goJogo suggested, is a fabulous idea. It also solves the “What can go above the cooktop that can stand heat and steam?” question. It’s a beautiful design. Bravo, Brevard Tiny House Company!

  • Great Grandma Ginny March 1, 2014, 4:22 pm

    Oh my… I really love this layout. The window sill with book shelf, the bathroom & closet at front, kitchen at back, excellent use of space. I am just to old to climb a ladder to get to the bed but I still think this is one of the best design layouts you have brought us Alex. But alas, I just dream on. No place to put one in Michigan near my family. However, I think the Tiny House Movement is awesome and if I were 50 years younger I would be so on board… Thank you ever so much for all the hard work you give to the cause.

    • Cece March 3, 2016, 9:09 pm

      I’m in my 60s and definitely cannot do the stairs for the lofts. I want a tiny house and I do intend to get one in a few years…I will really be old (lol). But I have been looking a various designs and sizes that will allow me the room for a bedroom possibly two on the main floor. I could use a loft for guests or as storage. However, I would need a real staircase with railing. Storage can be placed under the stairs like washer and dryer or whatever. Tons of ideas run through my head. Although I will be much older than those getting the tiny houses now, it would still benefit someone who wants to remain in her own home and these homes will let me do that by design. We can create a Second Childhood Community for those over 60!

  • Comet March 1, 2014, 6:10 pm

    That appears to be a toaster oven—which I would be careful with! They are great but can get VERY hot–I would think about lifting it out of the cabinet and onto a metal sheet pan ON the counter when needed for more than toast. And you could line the underside of the drawer above with a metal sheet for extra protection from heat and steam etc for both the cook top and oven.

    Love the KitchenAid in there! Just hefting that would build your arm muscles!

    I need those sliding pantry drawers in my ACTUAL house!!!!!!!

    Great use of space altho I would add matching shelves on other side of kitchen and a small wood stove if I could find room!

  • Dorothea March 1, 2014, 9:10 pm

    Wonder how much it cost to build it?

  • Dorothea March 1, 2014, 9:13 pm

    Another question. I forgot to ask. The 24ft. length is that including the porch?

  • Mary J March 1, 2014, 9:38 pm

    love this tiny house set up especially with the ‘real sitting/lounge room’ area. Maybe it doesn’t supply extra beds with bench seating like alot of tiny houses but the whole idea is for the tiny house to be a ‘home’ and that’s just what this looks like with its comfy settee and chair with somewhere to put your feet up. Can just imagine getting cosy and comfy in this space with a good book to read or friends, coffee and conversation! Love the kitchen too with it’s green mixer – that says that there’s going to be some cooking happening, and with the set up of pull out drawers/shelves with the hotplates and oven/microwave, this kitchen has great possibilities, and lots of storage too for foodstuffs and crockery, etc….another great idea. The bathroom at the entrance really is a space saver too.

  • Jerry March 1, 2014, 11:52 pm

    I love seeing an actual couch/loveseat in there! I personally plan on building a couch with storage like most designs, but seeing this makes me want to build the upper portion to look more like a couch, and not just a few cushions on top of a box with some throw pillows. Perhaps I’ll take an existing upper couch section and rebuild the lower section, I can probably find a “gently used by cat” freebie on CL! It’s tiny details like this that can help make a tiny house feel so much more like a “normal” home.

  • Michael March 2, 2014, 12:07 am

    Very well distributed and comfy. Like kitchen design, bathroom, wardrobe and the good lounge seating. Not comparable to the in built benches and uncomfortable chairs.
    The headroom of the loft seems to me not much. But as some of you may know already that I am not a big fan of lofts anyway.

  • 2BarA March 2, 2014, 9:36 am

    Lovely, with good separation of kitchen from bathroom. Appears to have distinct rooms with a comfortable place to sit and relax. Top design!

  • Eric T March 2, 2014, 12:24 pm

    No sink in the bathroom! Not good. Other than that, cool layout.

    • Lady Strawboss September 5, 2014, 10:26 pm

      they just need to do that tank top sink over the toilet!

  • elaine Kelly March 3, 2014, 12:45 am

    Well this is one of the nicest little homes I have ever seen . It has the feel of a normal house having the couch to sit on with the living area. The Bathroom looked so nice… and the washing machine in the kitchen also a plus ! Nice job ! I wonder how much one like this goes for ?

  • Crystal March 5, 2014, 4:34 pm

    Excellent use of space! Most tiny homes have the bathroom adjoining the kitchen area for plumbing purposes, but I love that this one is at the entrance. It seems as tho it takes up less space there. I would prefer something other than a curtain for privacy, but that is a simple fix. I also like the idea of having a full closet, slot of tiny homes have tiny closets as well. My favorite part of the design is the kitchen/living area, the way the furniture is placed it makes it seem as tho they are two separate spaces rather than one large one. I personally would have put a 4 burner stove and a larger refrigerator had it been me, and I where the table is, I would have made that another counter space with my sink. U could put stools on the opposite side and use as an eating area if u wish, or there would still be room to put a small dining table on the opposite wall. Whoever did this has really put a lot of thought and effort into their design, and in my opinion they have done a spectacular job! Definitely one of my favorites!

    • lady strawboss September 5, 2014, 10:29 pm

      experience had taught me doors in a tiny house like this are troublesome… curtains are way better. Yes I think a bar instead of the table would have added extra work space and still be able to eat there and have extra storage to boot…

  • Mary J April 10, 2014, 12:34 am

    back again just to say how pretty the tiny house looks set deep in the snow 🙂 I do love this house and impressed once again with its features and atmosphere!

  • Connie40023 April 10, 2014, 9:45 am

    It really needs a hand washing faucet in the bathroom, and a mirror–which could–possibly–be incorporated into the shower area.

  • Katydidit April 12, 2014, 10:51 am

    Love the slide out storage in the kitchen area. But the claustrophobic enclosed front door area would be a deal breaker for me. Have to have my living area open as possible. Maybe take half the porch into the house let the bath be on one side if you wanted, but having the bath closer to the bedroom for nite trips works best for me. But really nice ideas! Always enjoyed.

  • d June 21, 2014, 8:28 pm

    Very, very nicely laid out. Nothing here I would change. except I could do without the snow..

  • Cosy June 21, 2014, 10:39 pm

    I would put the washer/dryer where the pull out cooking burners & toaster oven are & put a stove where the w/d is, and a large fridge in place of the little one. Love the bath away from the kitchen as always and agree with others the need for a sink. Aside from these small adjustments which are purely my personal tastes, I think they knocked this one out of the park! Great job!

  • Elle June 22, 2014, 11:24 am

    Excellent design configuration that accommodates comfort and convenience. Nothing appears to be unavailable to the residents. Even have a stand mixer for baking! It’s well thought out for “real” everyday living by real people. That’s a great tiny home. Good work.

  • Annie July 7, 2014, 3:59 pm

    Ahh, it’s lovely. Put it on the beach and I’m there. Love the washer dryer combo too.

  • Lana July 7, 2014, 4:04 pm

    No. I do not want to go up and down to a loft to sleep. I am too old.

  • Sally Schrock July 7, 2014, 4:10 pm

    Very efficient use of space. However, I heartily dislike the lack of stairs for us who aren’t physically comfortable with using ladders. If you could keep this design and yet incorporate stairs into it, I would give it five stars instead of four!

  • JoAnna July 7, 2014, 5:00 pm

    i don’t like the fact that this tiny home has so much plumbing and a black water tank. my husband and i are considering building a tiny home on wheels. i’ve been eating up every bit of information i can get my hands on and i have even signed us up for the october workshop from tumbleweed tiny homes in LA this year. i want to incorporate rain water holding tanks- only grey water tanks that will be used for irrigation of our food garden. we will use a composting toilet and, again, use the products as fertilizer for our garden, after proper composting. we will use solar panels and batteries for our electricity but we want to go minimal. what is clear is that the kitchen is the most important space to me. i love to cook so i want a space to spread out and a full range. i may invest in those convection tops- i’ve heard they are super energy and heat efficient. we have a long way to go, but i’m enjoying the way its changing my thought process and the way i view life. i’ve already began to change the way i view things and objects. i’ve learned to let go of items and what i need vs. what i want.

    • Bill Burgess November 9, 2014, 10:57 am

      Jo Anna as much as I like this tiny house I don’t think there is any way to hit the $50 sq.ft. barrier. You might consider an option of picking up an old Motor home. I have found them up to 36′ for less than $2500. Most have the ability to be driven as is and just need to be remodeled. You will find you will already have systems in place and many off the shelf components to choose from. The main part of motor home format I do not like is the roof. It needs to be peaked or arched.

  • Joyce Lind July 7, 2014, 5:17 pm

    yes ! I would love this tiny house … I think they have done an excellent job of using the space and decorating the interior .. beautiful home.

  • Sunny July 7, 2014, 5:18 pm

    Yes, this is really nicely built. I would definitely live in it but first I have to downsize my life and get ride of some clutter.

  • Martha July 7, 2014, 5:29 pm

    I loved most everything about it except the stairs to the loft. I’m another one who is too old to climb that kind of ladder.

  • Lisa E. July 7, 2014, 5:43 pm

    This is fabulous; I’m in love. That bank of appliances in their own garage and out of sight is a brilliant use of space. The whole place looks so inviting it’s unbelievable and the best part is, they are making these affordable for fixed income people. Totally wonderful. Keep up the good work guys; we’re loving what you do!

  • Canyon Man July 7, 2014, 5:50 pm

    I think what needs to be realized about tiny homes is that they are not for everyone, nor everywhere. One designed for a permanent site, say in the desert southwest, would probably look a lot different than one say in New England. I have known park rangers who could moved into a 160 sq. ft. design and not dispose on anything. I once built a 7,000 sq. ft. home for a retired couple who had to cram to move in. Not every location is a smart place to build or live for every lifestyle.
    Not every community is open to small homes. Tax base suffers in their plans.
    Build the home you like, where you want to and can live, then not worry too much about what everyone else thinks or says.
    I think for many people tiny homes are ideal. I think it would be nice if we realize not everyone will want what we want. That is a good thing, we can spread out across the different parts of America or the world.

  • nikki July 7, 2014, 6:00 pm

    Love this design! Can’t wait to start my own version of tiny living this fall!

  • Tim July 7, 2014, 7:35 pm

    My simple answer is yes… I would live in it. The only immediate change I would make is to change the roof, making one roof portion pitch up from above the loft (above the kitchen) extending farther than the horizontal depth of the loft. The second roof segment will pitch up from up above the entry door and the small loft at that end, but this roof would have a more shallow angle and it wouldn’t meet the other roof segment. This video link provides visual details of both the roof and loft which is, in my opinion the best option and avoids wasting “comfort volume” in the home.

  • Elle July 7, 2014, 7:40 pm

    Definitely would live in a TINY home. This is very nice and inviting, great use of space.

  • Ellen A. July 7, 2014, 11:58 pm

    I would happily live here. I love the large windows and living spaces. Just cover up that kitchen plumbing, please, and park it somewhere with a gorgeous green view.

  • Glema July 8, 2014, 4:17 am

    For those of you who want a sink over the toilet, visit eco-buildingproducts.com click on kitchen and bathroom, then scroll down to the sinkPositive toilet sink accessory. 🙂 Great job to the owners/builders and ty Alex as well for sharing. I like that it’s opposite the kitchen as well. God bless you all and Happy Trails!

  • Patti July 8, 2014, 11:42 am

    I really enjoy your postings. But, I would like to see more of the how to get the process of finding a space for a tiny home, utilities, sewer, codes, land use, etc. I have looked at locating a home on a friends property, but with out personal waste disposal I have hit a dead end. Also a consideration is calling attention to my friends property by the county. Could be bad for them.
    So, I like the idea and the pretty pictures, but show me solution to real problems.
    Thanks

  • Tim September 5, 2014, 2:49 pm

    Nice… a perfect size for use as a hunting cabin!

  • Val September 13, 2014, 8:01 am

    Love this! Just can’t do ladders anymore- 🙁 …Love the use of space in this design! Kudos! You did an amazing job! Thanks for posting for all to see!

  • Marcy September 15, 2014, 2:25 pm

    So much to like about this house. My big complaint (and I see this on lots of little house designs) is the lack of a door on the bathroom! I know a pocket door is more expensive than a curtain, but I would definitely insist on one.

  • Kristi October 14, 2014, 3:15 pm

    Love this house, but I would re-work the kitchen a little. Not much, just add a dishwasher and more wall storage. Other than that, it’s perfect.

  • Susan October 24, 2014, 2:21 pm

    Like almost everyone else, there are things I would tweak for my particular taste, but what I love most about this specific house is how homey it looks. So many homes, in an effort to look ‘bigger’ and have more storage options, use modular shaped furniture, which to me comes out ‘cold’. This home looks delightfully lived in from the moment you enter the door.

  • Bruce December 10, 2014, 4:44 pm

    So much too like about this. Personal preferences I would use a tall RV fridge and sacrifice a little bit of counter space (have a storage base underneath it). For the bathroom I would add a sliding door/panel for privacy/smell issues 🙂 I would also like to see the same roof over both lofts, gain a bit more storage space.

    I really like the slide out drawers with the small appliances, perfect for a lazy bachelor like me!

    • Nora January 22, 2015, 2:00 pm

      We were thinking the same about the refrigerator. We also thought that we would lower the ceiling by a foot to allow for more space in the sleeping loft.

  • morbious December 12, 2014, 7:39 am

    I would want stronger slides on the cook top. I would wonder if it would collapse if I had a pot of pasta on it. Those slides were never meant for such a load at extension.

    • Nora January 22, 2015, 1:57 pm

      I was just thinking that the stove could be moved from the sliding pull out to the counter when in use.

  • Nora January 22, 2015, 1:56 pm

    This is my favorite Tiny House out of all that I have seen! I would want to lower the ceiling of the kitchen by about a foot to give more space in the loft.
    I could see how we could put our things and it would be perfect for us!
    We think that everything is perfect in this house! Love, Love Love it!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the seating area! That is what’s missing from most tiny houses — I keep wondering if it is a youth thing, as in young people don’t need to lounge around as much as us “old” folks (am over 50).

    But I don’t like the lack of a sink in bathroom….it’s unsanitary. Also, the clothes closet isn’t quite deep enough for hanging, and its placement by entry makes that matter even more — just a few more inches of depth would have been great….or maybe one of those slide out racks so clothes can hang the other way.

    Speaking of slide outs, totally love the slide out stovetop situation, that is GENIUS.

    All in all, a great design that I would only need to tweak slightly for personal preference.

    Hooray for a bathroom in the right location! Much greater storage here, too. I’d have stove instead of the washer if I had to choose. You can go to a laundromat, but you can’t go cook elsewhere. It isn’t a kitchen for me and my 11 countertop appliances ?, and I cannot sleep in a loft, but for those younger who can, this is a fine layout.

    Love love this small place ! Couple additions/changes, one put that sink-lid on the toilet (sink positive toilet lid) top so you could wash your hands too, think it’s great to have the bathroom and closet right there in front !

    The Kitchen table I’d have hang on that wall it’s next to so you can lower it when you need it ! Table art as you can call it =)

    The hot-plate and toaster I am going to guess are just there for storage, being so small they come off the shelf and go onto the counter to use, then when cooled they go back into their spot ! No heat issues there. I do need stairs, my knees can’t take a ladder, so that could be extra storage and I’d hang my tv from the ceiling/wall ! There you have it !

    Love this one. I really like the idea of the bathroom being right next to the door. I’ve never liked a bathroom right next to the kitchen. I love the light wood and the “Yellow” What are the dimensions?

    Love this design, you would just have to make sure that you have everything you need from the fridge before you start cooking. The washing machine sticks out and may be too big to swap with the fridge.
