    Very cool construction. If RV builders were smart, they would get on the band wagon with their own version of the tiny house format.

    • James D. August 31, 2017, 11:02 am

      Ray, some have… Some builders were previously in the RV business and have either expanded or converted to Tiny House builders, though some do so in name only and try to market their products as Tiny Houses but are really RV’s like Park Models, but for most of the rest it’s a issue of the business model that has worked for them for so long.

      Since, they rely pretty heavily on people constantly buying new products from them, which wouldn’t happen as often if they were really built to last and they didn’t focus on short term appeals like how many TV’s are included, etc. rather than how well designed it is to live in…

      Their market is for short term recreational usages and business is still too good for them to seriously consider changing…

      At least until the Tiny House market gets a lot bigger, which probably won’t happen until more states make them legal, without so many compromises as they have now…

      Though, those who can afford it can have custom made RV’s that blur the lines between RV’s and Tiny Houses but these can cost hundreds of thousands on up into the millions, putting them out of the reach of most… But that’s another reason they are unlikely to change soon as there’s just too much profit with what they’re doing now…

    Wow. Gorgeous. The woodwork is stunning. Slideouts. Brilliant. I wonder how much extra it costs to have them? It seems so right to have a larger living room to make a tiny house feel like a home. I would love to see more photos. The small closet in the entry. Yes! Even a tiny house needs that! Are there more closets? How long is this house?

      To build slide outs properly to support the weight, you add about 2500.00 per slide out due to all the hydraulics, steel and support items. House is 26ft long + tongue which has 24′ bay area on it

      • JIM August 30, 2017, 1:21 pm

        One of the most beautiful ones I have seen. Thanks Ray. Have you ever used heavy duty industrial sliders for the slide outs. The ones that are rated for 500 lbs. a piece. I am thinking of using four of them on a 8 ft. wide by 44 inch deep slide out.

        • Ray McCue August 30, 2017, 1:38 pm

          Be careful, the weight on a tiny house construction will stress that and it will bend. You have to design the slide outs to handle at least 1000 lbs and do not go deeper than 36″ deep. the stress on pull out will cause bending and will have many problems. I am writing a article on slide outs and will be out soon.

        • James D. August 31, 2017, 11:08 am

          Folds out may be a more practical solution that’ll last longer…

          But you can consider having dual layer slide outs… The first being a platform that’ll also extend a jack so the extension will be supported before the main slide out then comes out on top of it… But adds complexity and more things that can break over time…

          While a awning or some kind of roof can really help keep stuff from getting into the slide out’s moving areas and jamming up the works…

          And there’s maintenance issues like needing to check and eventually replace the seals because they will eventually fail and let water in…

          Plus you need to be level to use the slide outs, especially with such a potentially heavy weight to handle…

    This is one nice tiny house. Don’t care for lofts, but still like it.☺

  • Michael L August 29, 2017, 10:57 pm

    Love the idea of the slide outs

  • Michael August 29, 2017, 11:46 pm

    I always liked the idea of slide out for more interior space and to keep overall width within street legal 102″ but it needs to be done properly done.
    This THOW is a bit to cluttered for my taste. However it seems to me properly designed and many clever details.

  • Terressa August 30, 2017, 3:06 am

    BEAUTIFUL!!! I’ve been waiting to see if anyone used slide outs. Awesome!

  • Michael Isabell September 1, 2017, 1:07 pm

    I once owned an older park model trailer which had a “tip out” that housed the couch. Wouldn’t that idea help alleviate the weight stress on the section as long as the surrounding structure that held the tip out was built to take the extra weight, making motorized slide outs unnecessary?

    • James D. September 2, 2017, 10:15 pm

      Not really, it’ll just perhaps limit how much you can extend out and what can fit in the hinged tip-out vs slide-out…

      But the weight will still be cantilevered, you’ll still have a mechanical system that will wear out over time and require maintenance, you’ll still have to worry about keeping everything sealed to prevent water being let in and debre getting caught as the section is moved in and out, people will still prefer to have it motorized rather than use manual labor, especially for large sections like the entire kitchen, etc.

    Looks like Tiny House, Giant Journey has posted a video on this THOW…

    She also commented that she may do a follow up that focuses on the detailed workings of the slide outs…
