I’ve been wanting to introduce you to Dakota Tiny Houses as well as show you one of their very first builds.
The Dakota design is 30′ long by 8’6″ wide and 13’6″ tall. I’ll show you the floor plan down below.
There’s even a 3′ porch in the front and inside you’ll find just about everything you’d normally find in a normal home or fully featured RV.
- Combination washer dryer
- Normal sized toilet
- 36″ shower
- 3 burner stove with oven
- Large kitchen sink

- Cabinets with storage throughout
- Air Conditioner
- Retractable staircase to porch
- Attached micro shed in the back
- Ceiling fan
- Wall mounted LCD TV with sound bar
In other words, this thing is fully loaded and absolutely ready to live in. And it does come with a price tag. But guess what? ALL of the work is done for you! It’s literally ready to go..
I encourage you to learn more and tour the entire home below:

Interior Living Area with Wall Mounted TV & Storage
One of the best parts of this tiny home is that it’s actually very livable even if you’re not a minimalist. There seems to be plenty of space for most of your favorite belongings, don’t you think?
I also like that there’s plenty of windows so when you’re in here it feels bright and spacious. I think some of you will also like the fact that there’s no sleeping loft in this model. That means high ceilings and a more spacious feeling throughout. And yes, there’s an actual bedroom in the back.
In this one they installed a tilt mount on for the TV so you can watch while you do the dishes or cook.
Combination Washer Dryer
Lots of tiny homes on wheels are missing this. Sometimes it’s not a big deal because you may plan to park where you can share this appliance with someone else. But for some of us, a washer dryer is a must. If that’s you, you might want to check out my top 5 combo washer dryers for small spaces.
Full Size Shower
Again no loft in this one instead you’ve got enough length in this house (30′ long) to actually have a first level bedroom that you can stand up in! That’s nice.. I like the storage cabinets and fan too. :)
