    Very nice. You need binoculars to watch the tv, but that’s easy to remedy.

    • Alex April 14, 2017, 2:45 pm

      Didn’t think about that part! Looks like the TV is built right into the kitchen cabinets right? Interesting! Never seen that done before.

      Yep . . .cold have installed/integrated a pop-up in the island. Otherwise simply LOVELY. I might have gone for a murphy style bed with surround storage and possibly an “Inspector Gadget” type desk built on the flip side. I watch way tooooo much Tiny House Nation!

    Wonderful place, but..$275k?….in Apache Junction??…no way…maybe Scottsdale…..

    • Alex April 14, 2017, 2:44 pm

      Thanks for chiming in Rob. I’m not familiar with the area and pricing but either way what a cool place huh?

  • Mark April 14, 2017, 2:54 pm

    I like it! Are there plans available? Or more stories about it?

    So much for “tiny” houses not being about conspicuous consumption. Italian marble, indeed. Actually, it isn’t a tiny house, is it? It’s a small house. I joined this site because I was hoping for DIY (read cheap) ideas for living small and sustainably, not for a showcase of horribly expensive tiny mansions for sale at exorbitant prices. Seems the tiny trend is now “trendy” and priced accordingly.

      Nothing stopping you from DIY and doing it cheap… But just like anything else there’s cheap and then there’s luxury…

      Same reason why some people get a basic fuel efficient car while others get high end gas guzzling luxury cars… The market has room for both and everything in between and is more a sign that it’s a growing market that’s appealing to a wider consumer base than it started with…

      Besides, there’s usually a net benefit… Rich people buying similar products means more resources go into that product and that usually makes it easier and more economical for those of us targeting the other end of the spectrum…

      Like, there’s usually a larger range of affordable materials with a larger market… More things can be also reclaimed or have unused materials that can then be repurposed… Such as marble that you can still cut to a useful size, such as for marble tiles, can be had for a fraction of the price of the original big slabs… Making it easier to have nice things in even a low cost house… Another example is the parts they cut off of some slabs can still be used for bathroom counter tops or tinier Tiny House kitchen counter tops but since they can’t sell that at the original price it means big savings that you’ll see more of the more rich people buy such materials…

      Mind, making even a Tiny House still has some waste… But a bigger market means more of that waste can get used/repurposed… Versus one off individual builds… Essentially, think of it like an ecosystem…

      I saw one DIY’er, for example, who got a free shower stall but it was still brand new and unused…

      Other examples of benefit, is manufacturer defects… There are plenty of things you can get for less because of some minor defect… The business still makes their profit off the rich people but can sell the remaining at much lower prices… This would be especially beneficial for things like low E windows for better house insulation values and doesn’t just apply to non-essential luxury items…

      Mind, custom energy efficient Windows can cost from a few hundred to a few thousand each… So get thing at a much lower price can be a real boon to a DIY’er project…

      Another example is shipping containers… New they’re like over $23,000… But used you can get them for a few thousand for a nice cheap DIY option…

      So keep in mind that some of these high priced stuff helps provide some of the low priced stuff too…

    I don’t care what anyone else thinks or says, I absolutely ADORE this house. I love the desert and this house is perfect for a desert setting. Sure, we can’t afford the price, but I don’t care—just looking at it makes me feel happy. There is not one thing I would change, indoors or outdoors, except maybe the TV. However, I don’t imagine living out there with the rooftop terrace and patio that we would be watching much TV. As to the rooftop terrace—there is nothing like sleeping out under the stars on a crisp desert night. This is like a dream house.

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Patricia 🙂 Sometimes it’s fun to “window shop.” That was me with the tiny castle last week hehe.

  • Alison April 15, 2017, 12:32 pm

    I wish the shed out back matched the style of the main house. I like how the interior feels spacious and cool. The bathroom sink seems a bit cramped. Nice little getaway for desert lovers.

    Living in Phoenix I have been to AJ many times. This property is nice and open. But with that pool being there, unfenced, you better love wildlife because they will be visiting every evening 😁.

  • BRADLEY Boltz April 21, 2017, 10:23 am

    The overall aesthetic is nice but the bedroom invading the living area or vice versa is extremely lamo for “high designo” ($500 per sf, ouch!). Roof deck is cool feature except for not having direct access from the living area which detaches it from the house.
    Needs a retractable TV mounted in a hidden space at the back of the kitchen island (should be able to do at $500 per sf). TV in kitchen is mounted too high for comfortable viewing from living area. Maybe an electric pull down screen and projection unit would make more like a home theater affect from the living area. Still better than the tired looking THOWs so prominantly featured on this site!-bRad
