    Not enough windows to suit me.

    • Dominick Bundy May 17, 2016, 4:26 pm

      I agree or at least make the one near the wall closet to the bult in shelves much larger Other than that the floor plan is great..

    • Jane Ward May 18, 2016, 6:32 am

      I agree. Skylights or something in the loft would help, too.
      Love it’s simplicity!
      Would have loved this in grad school, with a little better desk, though (cuz I was a “dozen books open at once” kind of researcher!)

  • Jackie May 16, 2015, 11:21 am

    Best staircase idea I’ve seen.

  • Jim in Western NC May 16, 2015, 11:24 am

    I’ve been looking at tiny houses for about five years. A few stand out. This is one of them. Decent size sink in the bathroom, large shower, good trim work/details. You can tell it was constructed well. I’d make a few minor modifications, but it is quite livable as is. My other favorites are those by Dan Louche (tinyhomebuilders.com) and the Oregon Cottage Company. It’s exciting to see this industry grow. It isn’t for everyone, but it is welcome.

    PS- Thanks Alex, for your time and effort in keeping up with living tiny.

    Having looked at a LOT of tiny house models, here are my thoughts for the manufacturer. — I also like the stairs but they look ‘thin’. It would make me think twice about walking on them. — My real critique would be the closet near the door. — Get rid of it, or put it somewhere else. It cuts into the small amount of living room space that there is, AND makes so you cant have a larger window on that short end. Give me a REAL seating area in that corner, and the bigger window when I AM there and stow what you would stow in that closet in the loft above . . there are not that many people coming and going to justify that “entry closet”.

    I like the bathroom better than most and the kitchen looks good also. (tho I personally want a larger fridge. An apartment size fridge, but that is just a matter of preference.)

  • Danielle May 16, 2015, 11:50 am

    I love the staircase! What a great idea for storage and this may make it a lot easier for people to climb that have trouble with ladders.

    • Lisa E. May 16, 2015, 2:27 pm

      Yes, the staircase is wonderful. Just needs some kind of railing for those night visits to the loo.

  • SteveDenver May 16, 2015, 4:17 pm

    I’m with the camp that appreciates the stairs.

    I see this kind of roof-line on a lot of tiny homes. Is it aesthetic or is there a reason for this style instead of a barn-style roof, curved or shed dormer for extra light and space?

    For a few years in college, I rented a room with a pre-fab stall shower that opened directly into the bedroom and a small space next to it for the toilet that also opened into the bedroom area — a shower curtain obscured the toilet cubicle. Perhaps that arrangement would maximize space in this home and the kitchen sink could double for hand-washing/teeth brushing.

    My room had no cooking facilities (they were forbidden), but I got by with a hot plate and toaster oven. I would opt for those in this space — induction hotplates are wonderful. Appliances could be off the bench space until needed.

  • LyndaMach May 16, 2015, 4:33 pm

    Love this design, I find metal raised-seam roofs very appealing. Wondering if the walls are insulated? I have to consider snowy Colorado winters.

    Love the simple storage beneath the stairs and the round window. The window space is great and I like that they are set up for good cross-ventilation. I just put up cafe curtains using an idea I found on Pinterest: BUNGEE CORDS. A nail on each side, tread the Bungee through the curtain, and they’re up! It has a certain “household McGuyver” appeal. If this little house is on the move, I would also recommend bungees across the shelves so books don’t tumble.

    The only thing I would add is some kind of exhaust fan, possibly above the air conditioner. Since hot air rises, moving it out of the top of this structure would help immensely.

    • Linda May 18, 2015, 3:29 pm

      Lyndamach – We’re getting ready to build a “tiny” in Colorado too. Mine will not be for traveling. It will be stationary, in the woods behind my house. I’ll use it for a studio/craft shack. I thought maybe we could trade ideas. I will not have running water but I will need heat. It will only be 8″ X 14″ so a small space heater will probably work. Tell me about your ideas. -Linda

  • Catherine Wilson May 16, 2015, 4:34 pm

    Hello!
    I’d say that you were kind to help that student out and that this looks like a great first effort! I have two caveats; I’d need more window space, it’s too dark inside for me (and windows too small for exiting), and those stairs don’t inspire confidence.

  • Nita May 16, 2015, 4:54 pm

    Don’t like the stairs without a rail and it’s way too small in living and kitchen. Not for me.

  • Martin Green May 16, 2015, 6:34 pm

    Sorry, but this is about the worst example of a tiny home. Craftmanship has been left out, just look at the details of the structure at the top of the stairs… This is NOT stable, not well worked out and wil certainly not pass any test. Sorry, but cozi will have to built a better example.

  • Susanne May 16, 2015, 11:42 pm

    Cute stairs but look highly unstable…put window in kitchen so when standing cooking one sees outside, not staring at a wall…:)
    Fantastic project for all students to do!!! Should be mandatory…:)

  • Kay May 17, 2015, 8:34 pm

    I don’t like the stairs. The rest of the home looks very nice but the stairs are gaudy. And the landing at the top is scary!

    I love the quilt…I have one just like it!!

  • Mike May 20, 2015, 9:08 am

    The exterior is appealing, but the interior program needs work. Imagine a fire starting in the kitchen and you’re in the bunk above. Smoke is rising and there’s only that small opening for egress. Nope. Any bunk area needs more head room and at least two person-sized operable windows to bail out of.

    You can’t fixture a tiny home like a standard house. You need to make a very careful study of your needs and then scale them as small as possible. And then all of that effort needs to be programmed.

    And if you plan on having visitors, you’ll need more than one chair.

    Back to the drawing board Cozi.

  • Kathleen-Florida May 20, 2015, 10:36 am

    Good point Mike. I never even thought about having to get OUT through that window holding the A/C unit. —- Now that you mention it, there is not a window in the house that I COULD squeeze through – there, I said it, ha ha ha. — so more good input for the builder to consider. —

    I want to add that I don’ like not being able to see who is at the door. — Most tiny houses have a window next to the little ‘porch’, but a peep hole in the door would suffice. — Just a thought.

  • Holly Bidle May 17, 2016, 3:20 pm

    A loft without a window or skylight of some kind is too much like a coffin for me… The TH I finally bought has 3 windows in the loft, and a safety rail across the opening to below, sunlight pours onto the bed, making everyone who stays in it very happy 🙂 Perhaps change the design so the AC unit goes above the front door (assuming the AC has a remote control), and put the decorative window above the bed for at least some natural light. Love all the storage, esp under the staircase.

  • Meg May 17, 2016, 4:03 pm

    Agree on lack of emergency egress from loft and flimsy stairs. I would not be able to sleep with an AC unit blowing down on me from above. And I would want more windows. All that said, it is attractive and simple (in a good way).

  • Susanne May 17, 2016, 9:14 pm

    A really nice looking tiny house, and like many other commenters, I like the stairs. What caught my eye, though, was the “dining table” right below the open stair threads. Yikes! Have you ever seen how much dust and dirt comes down from stairs like that?? I wouldn’t even want this set up if I lived there by myself. I would have to super clean the stairs before sitting down to eat every time.

  • Maria May 18, 2016, 7:03 am

    The only thing I like about this house is the bathroom. This is how a tiny house bathroom should look like.

  • Penny May 18, 2016, 9:18 am

    If not going to be able to use corner by closet just make all closet/storage. Put large window on wall so could get some cross ventilation in more temperate months and light. Is bracket stop for railing on stairs? Agree on apartment refrigerator so if for production may wish to have burners as optional placement along with refrigerator height. Nice take-off on jays.
