Gromer Park Model Tiny Home on a Trailer

If you’re into tiny living, great! But if it’s a little too tight… Let’s say you’re sharing the tiny home with a loved one, then you might need more space because where are you going to put all of your stuff? That’s why I like showing people these ‘park model’ tiny houses because it’s still the same concept only slightly larger and more spacious.


So it’s way more functional and doable long-term on a full-time simple living basis (especially if you’re NOT living alone). Obviously, this is definitely NOT something you’d want to go with if you were planning on moving around quite a bit or even traveling with your ‘tiny home’ because these are heavier and you even need a special permit (license) to tow them.

‘Bigger’ Tiny Houses?

Some people who go tiny end up out growing their tiny house before even a few years go by. That’s why I like to point out larger options that might be more doable long-term on a full-time basis like this ‘park model’ size tiny home because you can still live simply and enjoy the benefits of less in a slightly larger than tiny house, too, right?

    I LOVE THE STAIRS WITH HAND RAILS, I ALWAYS LOOK FOR SAFETY FEATURES, BUILDERS SHOULD TOO. PLEASE ALEX, KEEP ON SHOWING THOSE PHOTOGRAPHS AND IN EVERY SECTION, IT IS A MOTIVATOR FOR IMAGINATION. KEEP THOSE PHOTOGRAPHS COMING AND IN LIVING COLOR TOO!!!

  • Kathleen Moore July 24, 2014, 7:28 pm

    I have spent literally hours looking at Rich’s cabins. I love his work. And Alex, thanks for including those of us who aren’t willing to give up everything we may own to be a part of the Tiny Home Movement. 320 sq ft or so plus the loft is plenty tiny! I believe in the principles of living tiny, but I need either a normal stairs or a first floor bedroom, and usually these are not consistent with a 200 sq ft house.

  • Sharon Rex July 24, 2014, 7:31 pm

    Beautiful

  • Martha July 24, 2014, 7:33 pm

    I love the downstairs and what I could see of the 2nd floor. What I don’t care for is the look of the dormers on both sides of the house. Love the kitchen and the stairway, plus the storage under the stairway. I’d be quite happy living in this house.

  • Lindy July 24, 2014, 8:44 pm

    I would love love to live in this house. almost perfect. Just screen in the front porch. Then it would be perfect. I like lofts, except for ladders– I’m getting too old for that. This has enough room for a bed somewhere downstairs if necessary. I would sleep in a screened in porch as much as I could. Now if I could afford it. I have to keep dreaming. 😉

  • Debbie July 24, 2014, 8:54 pm

    I Love Riches park models. I so wanted to buy ours from him. The only draw back was he is on the west coast and we are on the east coast and to pay to get it here was over $7000. So if anyone out there wants a truly beautiful well built home contact Rich and I’m sure you will be surprised at what you can get. His prices are very reasonable! And just under 400 sq. ft.

  • Dominick Bundy July 25, 2014, 12:30 am

    Too me this seems more of a standard small house rather that a tiny house..

  • D. Michael July 25, 2014, 5:55 pm

    Finally!!!! My perfect dream home! LOVE THIS PLAN!!! It has everything I want & need. It’s PERFECT! <3

  • Heather Waltho July 25, 2014, 9:29 pm

    I definitely like this one.

  • Elle July 27, 2014, 7:49 pm

    According to the diagram (using my tape measure) the length looks to be a hair over 40′ including that (great) porch. Is that about right? What a difference that extra bit of width adds! Just enough to add those pesky stairs without dominating all the space. The extended loft works nicely leaving just enough room along with the porch and glass doors to still allow a high-ceiling, open feel on the main floor. The bay windows add so much character.
    The more I see stairs the more I favor them over a ladder regardless of house size. They’re a great way to add a lot of storage space in a very attractive way. They don’t need to be “Gone With the Wind” wide and they make it easy for your furry friends to access the loft -and life isn’t worth living without furry friends.
    Finally (promise), I’m guessing they would sell just the house shell because I’d like to put everything on casters except the kitchen sink and shower, to allow for adding, subtracting and rearranging the interior. Plus, I don’t want to sound critical but I can’t understand taking up so much space with full-size appliances -or at least having all, full-size appliances unless you regularly shop and cook for a big group of people. I replaced my full-size fridge with a ‘less-than-half-size’ fridge and have room to spare and rarely if ever use more than 1 or 2 burners -and I love to cook and bake. A toaster oven does work well for baking. (I’m weaning myself off ‘big’ appliances.) When you do want to can or bake on a large scale baking it would be more cost (and space) effective to rent out the kitchen in a community center, church or friends home. All could probably use a little extra dough -no pun intended. That said, the large appliances do seem to work for many folks. I’d pay the extra cost to move this size model. That tiny bit of extra room makes a a huge difference without losing the Tiny House feel or lifestyle.

    These are great! I’m sure hubby can pull these with his A license but I could not as I haven’t one. So, I would just have to do my moving around in a smaller one and leave this one for “homeport” hehehe. Thanks for sharing, still actively dreaming here. I think it’s beautiful would much rather live in one of these than in a Park model “double wide” sort of thing. I like this look much better! I would however replace the dishwasher w the washer/dryer type machine. And my Appliances are white, at least at the moment 😉 God and time will tell. Thanks again and God bless each of you, Happy Trails!

  • Janice Tuttle July 31, 2014, 11:57 am

    If I were having this house built, I would ask you to put a layer of some kind of wire mesh under the floor insulation to keep mice out. I once lived in a mobile home for about ten months and mice got in from underneath the floor and scampered about through the walls at night.

    I absolutely love this tiny house. It is very well designed and beautifully crafted. Love the porch. Dishwasher, W/D are very important. I love the bays and bump outs. They add a lot. I would ask for some louvered panels around the refrigerator for added ventilation.

    • Brenda September 6, 2016, 2:14 pm

      Lil Lodges in AL puts down wire screening. It also helps keep mosquito’s from coming up through the Trex flooring (they use Trex where some others just use pressure treated wood where you have maintenance, and splintering wood) if you choose to screen in the porch.
      They do build a good sturdy home, and double the floor joist every 4 ft, have ducted central H/AC, but their communication with their customers is something to be desired!!!

  • Gail August 5, 2014, 4:37 pm

    I love this!!! Wish I could of seen pictures of the bedroom and bathroom. This would be a great size for those who want to downsize, but aren’t quite sure a “tiny” house would be it. I think I could even talk my hubby into this place and he has the Class A CDL to haul it. I will be sure to show him this!!!!

    • JP0618 December 9, 2015, 2:01 pm

      If you go to Rich’s website, under the photos section, there are TONS of great pics of all the different bedrooms they do, and they are labeled with the model they correspond to. They even have a few of the Gromer Park model.

  • Sue August 7, 2014, 4:47 pm

    I love this house but if I wanted to put it on my daughters property so I could stay there on a part time basis, I’d want the outside of the house with matching siding to my daughters home to blend better on her property.

  • Jill August 26, 2014, 4:06 pm

    I am looking for a Tiny Cabin I can rent in Washington State. I am on a fixed income. Does anyone know where in Washington State I can do this? I do not own property.

    • elizabeth September 19, 2014, 3:41 pm

      Keep checking Alex’s blog, he posts sales and rentals often. The movement is still small, but seemed to take off earliest in PNW. So it may take some patience, but not forever to find your rental. You might also talk to the tiny house hotels in Seattle and Portland. The folk who run those are really knowledgable, they might know something. Likewise the growing community movement. Alex’s page: http://tinyhousetalk.com/communities/ . I’m disabled on a fixed income too and was immediately drawn to tiny living. Easier to get around (with the right design), less expensive, less to clean, less upkeep, less clutter, etc. I dream of the day when us fixed income folks can live in communities of tiny houses.

  • Linda August 28, 2014, 9:13 pm

    Would love to have a “tiny home” to live in as a guest house or so people who love to ride horses could rent for short periods of time and ride to their hearts content until they needed to return to their work.

  • Marcy September 4, 2014, 6:14 pm

    I’m with Glema – dishwasher not as important to me as a washer/dryer. What about a stacked washer/dryer to fit where the fridge is? Could put it behind a pocket door so it isn’t visible. Shift the fridge over to the other side with the rest of the kitchen, widen the divider to double as a breakfast bar, and my only question would be – when can I move in?

    • JP0618 December 9, 2015, 1:58 pm

      There is already a space for a washer/dryer in this design without eliminating any of the existing appliances. It’s located in the bedroom.

  • elizabeth September 19, 2014, 3:30 pm

    Another nice design from Rich’s. (I pretty much like them all.) Aside from the black appliances (I believe smaller spaces need either SS or light colors), this one also has great features. Not least is a BR on the first floor with another in the loft, and STAIRS! Thanks Alex for always keeping an eye open to practical ideas for living small, even if it isn’t strictly “tiny.”

  • Cyn September 30, 2014, 12:49 pm

    I like the layout okay enough, but not all that wood inside. In a small house it seems oppressive. I wouldn’t mind touches of wood, but would prefer colors to open the space up more.

  • Lisalouise October 2, 2014, 12:54 pm

    Absolutely perfect in every way!

  • Bob November 9, 2014, 8:40 am

    It’s a lot of fun to see all of these tiny homes. I get a kick out of seeing what people like to build. For those who might want to see how much it costs for all of these tiny homes, it sure would be nice, along with the picture and diagrams that the builders would also include a pricing list of materials and/or just the price of a finished product. Comparisons of price would be encouraging for some, maybe not for some others. But for me, it would give some idea of how one could actually afford to either make one or purchase one.

  • TheoK November 14, 2014, 10:05 am

    On my way from Portland, Oregon to Boise, Idaho two weeks ago, I stopped by the RPC manufacturing plant. I have never seen anything like it. Fabulous! If you are ever in the vicinity, do not miss it. Though the finished product may seem a bit spendy, these are the most carefully and meticulously crafted cabins I have ever seen – or imagined. Simply beautiful work, extremely practical, precisely planned and constructed. My goal is to put aside the funds to own one in the not-too-distant future. Thank you Rich and Brian.

  • Angel February 28, 2015, 10:43 am

    Would love to have information on builders of this style on the east coast. I’m from PA. Thanks!

  • Katie Hruska May 29, 2015, 8:42 am

    i would love to buy one of these, where can you purchase them at

  • Darwin Andrie May 29, 2015, 11:56 am

    I might be interested

  • Diana Herrera September 5, 2015, 12:23 pm

    This house is amazing…. I’m excited because this is exactly what I would love to live in for my retirement years. I would be placing it on my nephews property in Dos Palos….in Merced County…. What would it cost to move it there? What does this model cost? I am a n the planning stages and have been searching for about six months….very interested. Thank you!!

  • peter bentley February 16, 2016, 9:13 pm

    I would love this if the upstairs was split in half for my two kids with stairs going up on both sides to the doors

  • Ralph flynn June 21, 2016, 2:12 pm

    Please give location and prices

  • Fred Enzel November 29, 2016, 6:18 am

    I really love this house. It’s perfect (if such a state is possible) in every way that matters to me. Size, design, floor plan, ground floor bedroom, finish……it’s just all there. One question or concern I have is how a home like this stands up to being moved on a regular basis. That is, as a Snowbird, how would it hold up if it were towed from the snow belt in Ontario to the Southern US every season and back again? Would it survive the rigors of a twice annual move for 10 or 20 years or is that plan unrealistic? Would I, in fact, be better off maintaining two homes (a more expensive proposition, obviously)?

    In any event, I know I could live in this home easily with the loft tripling as guest suite, media room and home Office space. Thanks for showing such a great option.

    Fred
