    Very attractive both inside and out. I’ve commented before that I couldn’t deal with a ladder at night when needing to go to the bathroom, but for a younger person it probably wouldn’t be an issue, and the ladder looks more angled than some, which seem to be straight up and down. I didn’t notice a shower.

    Nice. and interested since you are very local. But wow – up to $300,000? I guess in that case it wouldn’t be in order to get out of a mortgage.

    • Paul October 12, 2014, 6:04 am

      Where on EARTH do you get $300,000 from? I’ve searched the site and the nearest I can find is $50,000 which is like, you know, $250,000 short of the figure you mention.

      They talk of a figure of $250-$300 per square foot. So a construction of 150 sq feet comes in at about $45,000 @ $300 per sq ft.

    I think that people who build tiny homes could really benefit from studying Feng Shui. Sharp angles and pointed edges are not conducive to harmonious living. For one thing they hurt people and they look like they would hurt. In a small space problems are amplified. Very few of these homes would I ever live in for any length of time. The Gypsy Caravan design is the best I have seen.

    • kristina nadreau September 11, 2015, 6:14 pm

      yes

      Feng Shui. Schmeng Fui… what rubbish. I’ve even got a Chinese friend from my college days (high school for Americans) who laughs at the whole concept. But, if you want to waste money it’s as good as anything… even Nigerian scammers.

      Having said all that, interesting tiny home. Not sure if it’d work for me, but then I got knee problems.

        Just because you or someone else cannot “see” something or prove it from a linear “scientific” point of view does not mean it is not valid. Major business corporations use feng shui experts and principles as do millions of homeowners and other people. The simplest remedy to something makes sense and Feng Shui reverts to nature as a balance. As a contrast topic the linear medical system is based in everything proven from “science” and very pricey research studies. This is why we have a “health” (DISEASE) care system based in cut poison burn…surgery/pharmaceutical drugs/chemo/radiation.
        The natural and holistic focus on “root cause” makes sense, Chinese medicine and acupuncture is thousands of years old as are feng shui principles. Reiki is energy healing where you need not touch the person, yet this is incredibly healing and is used in hundreds of hospitals all over the world. Malnutrition is a major cause of disease yet doctors have 4 hours of schooling in it in 8 years. Focus on the cause of anything and you find the “cure”, not in looking in the wrong direction. namaste’, rachel

    I like the way people are starting to expand onto the trailer tongue more often, also liking that side entry and lots of glazing. I can see getting nice and cozy around that stove while you enjoy the view. Not so keen on the hallway created by placing the sink in the middle but it could be to keep plumbing off an outside wall for winter use.

    Had a good chuckle over Ben Lunt’s comments. Practicality wins over pointless proselytising in my book.

    • Lantz August 3, 2016, 1:00 am

      The side entries have always made so much more sense to me. One end is the bathroom and kitchen the other end the living room or bedroom.

  • Kim October 12, 2014, 12:44 pm

    Could you please recommend the best book or website for the novice regarding solar power systems for tiny homes? I’m rebuilding a vintage camper trailer and want to be able to camp off grid. I love the whole tiney house movement!

    • Shane Brion September 19, 2015, 1:01 pm

      Kim did any one give you advice for solar? I to am interested in learning more about! I too just want to live off grid so tired of just working to pay a mortgage that you have no time to spend in it because we are to busy working to pay for it! Thanks Kim.

    Much to appreciate here. Especially the aesthetic. Have some concern for hauling the “harmony” down the road with the turbulence likely caused by the “wings” of the shed roof. Here are my thoughts: 1) end the shed roof at the square end of the frame and fold the roof down over the part on the tongue (bathroom) or 2) taper the shed roof from the front to back tucking the living room under the loft. No doubt a tiny wood stove would be required (http://www.unforgettablefirellc.com/kimberly-wood-stove/) I have no financial connection with kimberly.

    Also like your philosophical musings on FB 🙂 Take care and best wishes. Really nice work.

  • Steve October 13, 2014, 10:08 pm

    Nice little pad & well appointed. I personally feel the sleeping loft is also too claustrophobic and lacking “headroom” such as it is. I believe that a Gambrel Roof or even a slightly taller wall configuration with a Curved Roof would have afforded more space in that regard. A gentle curved roof design similar to what would have been found on later 1800’s railroad cars, shallow with a primary ridge beam, or even with clerestory windows @ the top similar to this concept below:

    Or like this old English Showman’s Living Van
    http://prestonservices.co.uk/item/20-ft-showmans-living-van/

    Talk about Old Tyme Tiny Houses ! Many excellent ideas in those old caravan’s and showman cars. I’m stealing ideas & solutions from many turn of the century ones like the above for building my Tiny Home (presently under construction)…

    PS: No Time to blog about it now (tiz October and I need to be in it before the Canadian big snows) but taking photo’s and documenting for later blogging.

  • Bruce October 14, 2014, 1:39 pm

    Cute but the shed roof high point is on the wrong side. You will whack every low hanging tree branch and could tear it up pretty badly. If you stay on just freeways and roads with large shoulders you should be fine. Tow it out into the more rural settings and you will tear it up.

  • Eve November 14, 2014, 6:20 am

    Yes it does have a toilet, shower, and wash basin with storage space due to the tongue area utilitzation.

    This is probalby the most utilitzed space tiny house I’ve seen in months of research. Having the kitchen pipes routed though the middle of the underside to connect a few feet to the bathroom shower and sink is one of the most ingenious plans. My home is -40 degrees and this is the best design I’ve found that might be able to hold up to it. In this cold, feng shui is the least of your worries. My roof will be modified to be a curved, gypsy style to offer the most open, light, and height for headroom. Sliding doors (bathroom) save swing space in a tight hallway design like this. Also, those who don’t like rickety stairs can always make full sized fixed storage stairs, either through pull out drawer models or stair boxes that are open to the hallways.

  • Marc Swainson January 1, 2015, 10:01 pm

    I have two 15 year old sons that have to graduate but i am in the early stages of building our tiny house dream now. Just have to wait on the older ones to get out of the house……..

  • Peggy Andriola January 2, 2015, 2:57 pm

    My two teenage daughters is stopping me right now. I’m a single Mom and owns a 1500 sq foot house, which in my eyes is too big as it is. As soon as they are grown and on their feet, I will sell and build my own “Tiny Home” I’m in Love with the idea of being off the “grid”. Me and my dog will be living LARGE! Pun intended! lol

  • Susan Smith January 26, 2015, 1:50 pm

    Very attractive. Great storage ideas and implementation. Loved tge designs .

  • Alex Garcia March 6, 2015, 9:46 pm

    What kind of stove is installed in the kitchen very curious.

  • Dominick Bundy September 11, 2015, 8:49 pm

    I didn’t notice any closet space to hang clothes in . The sleeping loft looked a little tight on head room. and I’m not a big fan of wood burning stoves or fireplaces in a tiny house . I think that space could be utilized for something more useful and practical. ( maybe a closet , flip up table or desk) Love the big windows and all the light and brightness it brought in nice curb appeal too..

  • J Dark September 18, 2015, 1:10 am

    I wish there was a link to that stove. Looks great for small spaces and I have seen it before, but never any reference to which one it is. Anyway it looks great!

    • J Dark September 18, 2015, 1:13 am

      OOPS Spoke to soon. Just looked at the link in one of the above comments and says it’s a Kimberly stove. Nice!

  • Theo May 4, 2016, 6:31 pm

    No, just no all around, especially that loft, Good Lord that is pathetic. The only thing I find favorable in the whole thing in face, except the woodwork looks pretty good, is the cooking stove. The loft looks like you’d have to crawl on your belly to reach those books.

  • JM July 28, 2016, 1:52 am

    Maybe the worst thing about tiny houses on wheels is the height restriction. Sure you have go under bridges. But anyone just building a tiny house onsite can make it as tall as they want. NO stooping. If you want a taller house just ship two prefab units that you can stack with a crane on your site.
    The voltages are different with solar power and batteries. If you ever want to connect to standard power–you might have to rewire and switch appliances. Major hassle. Have house dual-wired from the beginning. THAT should be standard.
    And if it were me, I would fire-sprinker the house, with a water tank and something I can pressurize it with. Like a bike outside that can pressurize the tank by pedaling. Wouldn’t cost much.
    And the kitchen counter/cabinets would be plug-n-play. They would be easily removable by screws so that I can clean behind them (maybe kill the bugs)–and I can always upgrade to a new fabricated kitchen off-site. Not build-in. In fact, the less built-ins the better.
    I know these are small houses but–since you have the bike–why not run a copper pipe around the baseboard filled with a fluid that absorbs heat and circulates through the heater/stove with YOU pedaling a few strokes with that bike? To evenly distribute the heat–AND providing you with excersice.
    Not to mention that bike can recharge your batteries in cloudy/wintery or NE. But if you know exactly where you will be, and for how long, and what is available…you may not need all this flexibility. Whew.

  • iris March 22, 2017, 2:21 pm

    I liked the design, with the roof slooping in one direction, cause if one could save up money for land, and place it onto a slab, they could build a twin to match on the other side with sliding doors to add more add ons.
    Thanks for sharing

  • Tezzz July 27, 2017, 7:34 pm

    Looks very decent. More soft furnishings needed and personal touches to warm it up. The loft looks cosy and the crawl space is perfect for books.
