Just got an email this morning from the folks over at Molecule Tiny Homes.

Remember their surfer’s oceanfront tiny house that they built for a client?

And their spacious tiny home with a flip down porch?

Spacious Tiny Home on Wheels

I love Molecule’s tiny house designs and builds because they look and feel like I could easily live in them. Not sure if you feel the same way..

But let’s take you on a photo tour below:

As you can tell right away, plenty of windows to allow lots of natural light inside.

This is the biggest benefit in my opinion with tiny homes versus apartments or studios…

You get all of these windows! And no shared walls.

I absolutely love the custom made backdoor, don’t you?

Micro Storage Shed for Little House on Wheels

You can’t have a livable tiny house on wheels without a micro shed. Alright, let’s go inside..

Notice the storage underneath the staircase to the main sleeping loft.

Small ceiling fan installed to increase circulation in the house. This is a great idea.

If you weren’t open to a sleeping loft before, does a staircase like this make it better? Let us know in the comments if you want. I think the rails help big time.

And there’s even another loft that you can use as second bedroom or just as storage. This loft is accessible via a ladder.

And of course the kitchen and bathroom are underneath the second loft. Below is a look at the main loft:

They used an RV style range in the kitchen which is great. A compact stove top oven range like this would also work well.

    This is a beautiful home! Don’t think the loft would be a problem with the nice stairs! Wonderful use of space and I really like the kitchen layout. Nice design. I really don’t care for the color in the bathroom, but everything else looks nice. Am curious as to what size fridge goes in the space in the kitchen though. Love it!

    So far, this is my absolute FAVE!!! And I’ve had a few others, but with all the natural wood, which I adore PLUS, the necessary requirement: a staircase! It’s got it all!!!

    You’ve done it again! Great floor plan and I love the staircase, but personally can’t do stairs very well. I don’t know why I’m surprised to see your work improving with each passing day. Ok, now I have a question and hope you take it to the drawing board; how about us senior citizens who are still independent, but don’t maneuver as well as we use to. A lot of us are wanting to downsize, but a little leery of taking that first step. Our homes hold an awful lot of good memories, but we just can’t take care of the house and yard as we use to. Can you help us married couples and single adults?

      Joyce, as a 70 year old man with bad knees I may find it increasingly difficult to climb ladders or stairs in coming years. I’m wondering if those chair lifts for stairs could be adapted to this stairway even if it has to be widened a little. It is a great design and the double lofts are a good idea. The second loft could be used as a computer/video/audio studio which appeals to me.

      Reply
      • Joyce Henderson

        Carl, the chair lift sounds like a good idea. Have you seen the Tiny House plan with a raised dining/kitchen area? There is a pull out bed that is located under that area and the stairs leading up have built in storage. They are really getting better each time with their floor designs. One day I’ll see exactly the one I want or design one just for me. :) Still hanging on to my home of 47 years.

          I too have been having problems with stairs for seniors. If travel is where you are going, I am not sure this type of unit is cost effective for traveling seniors. It is a great tool for younger people that are uncluttering their lives and love to travel in a unique fashion(and can DIY) if you have to purchase however rather than DIY maybe a little expensive new. I recoment looking at some Ideas I am sharing on 4Fathoms Designs facebook page to see the larger format that I think fits seniors a bit better. A kind of step before you go tiny house.

    These folks do tiny homes in an amazing way…this one is phenomenal. One of my favorite ideas ever came from Molecule in their first house with the studio companion…a tiny house docked at a nice deck connecting it with a studio space built as a small twin to the tiny house. Outdoor space, house, and office, all connected… brilliant stuff.

    This is a great design. I was staring at this one a few days ago.
    I would lose the “back door” and take the space instead because hey, the house is tiny and there’s already a big door entrance. I LOVE that more designers are putting in bigger fridges that you don’t have to bend over and poke around in. You can see where the fridge is placed on top of a box that looks like it might be more storage–I’ve seen it in other pics on their website. Excellent.
    I would put awning crank out windows up in the lofts instead of sliders so I wouldn’t have to worry about heavy blowing rain and going up there to close windows.
    The tub looks tiny…not sure the length. In the space available I would love to see a deep Japanese style soaking tub or if wide enough one of those tubs with a door on it. I don’t need one now but in the future? Great job on the stairs and just all around guys!

    Generally nice design. It looks like quality work.

    Likes:
    the dormers,
    the accent walls,
    the steps (thought they could be split tread and take up half the space),
    the arched top door,
    the kitchen lay out with shallow base units and built in wall shelf,
    the faux roof accent above the patio door.
    Compost toilet-
    cabinet over toilet for storage- see comment below.
    nice mix of natural wood interior and painted luane wall panels.
    nice railings and trim on lofts.
    bathtub.

    Concerns:
    gas appliances- gas anything is ON grid and petroleum based. As nice as the alternative stove was, it wouldn’t work in this kitchen because of the shallow base units,
    If you were going to go with gas stove, you should have a vented hood.
    No 12 volt wiring for lights and outlets- IN ADDITION to some 120 volt AC outlets,
    A paper/petroleum roof – (really?) they fail miserably… and they are much heavier than a metal roof,
    the windows – there are too many of them, they are cheap looking and not in keeping with the character of this house, no grids, both sliding AND single hung windows on the same house, they look off the shelf from the nearest big box store, no accent around them on the exterior.
    A large double panel French door- too big, a single glass door would be adequate. A door like this makes the rest of the house look smaller than it is. Personally, any glass door is a safety issue for breaking and entering,
    The protruding 2nd floor on the hitch end- looks weird, looks like a 5th wheel, looks… not like a cottage, look clumsy, If it stuck out farther and had a porch under, that would work. This doesn’t.
    cabinet over toilet- good idea, but this one hangs down too far. something half that size would be appropriate and hung from the ceiling. Here one is sure to bump their head.

    Overall, quality work.

      Excellent feedback, Erik. Nice to see a reaction with a bit more substance than “so cute!!! OMG!!! LOVE!!!”

      I’d add to your list of concerns: too many surface materials! Laminate, knotty pine, wood cabinetry, and it looks like they’ve used floor tiles for kitchen counters. It looks like someone walked into Home Depot and looked for whatever was cheap instead of what worked. I’m all for economizing, but somehow this suggests they just didn’t know any better than to mix so many surfaces in such a small space.

      At least they’re not using bathroom sinks in the kitchen anymore or vinyl floor material for the tub/shower surround. Cringe-worthy.

      (Sorry for sounding so harsh. Their work comes really close to being something great, but little usability and design mistakes keeping it from getting there. However, each home they build is better than the previous one, so I’m watching closely!)

    I’ve been designing and building tiny dwellings of all sorts all my life, and looking at the designs of others, and so far, this is one of my favorites…everyone will have preferences of their own, and there are certain constraints which come from building on a trailer and keeping it road legal…and there is always a compromise between aesthetic and function…adding architectural interest sometimes comes at the cost of usable space. I think this one hits a very good balance…and i even like the purple….with all the natural wood, i think the bath is a perfect place to go for some bold color…or course, it could easily be changed according to taste. Great job in my humble opinion…

    I agree with Erik Markus above on the windows in particular. Cheap looking, and too many sizes/shapes.
    Also wonder about the composting toilet so close to face height in the bathtub – perhaps switch bathroom sink and toilet placement?

    On their website, the dimensions are listed at 27′ long, 9′ wide and 13.5′ high. Obviously built on a 5th-wheeler trailer.

    Really beautiful design.
    Since the whole floor is above the wheels, and the height in lofts is so spacious, it’s hard to believe that trailer and all is 13 ft 6 in.

    The stairs definitely make me object less to the sleeping loft.

    There must be some better way to store the ladder to the second loft? What a waste of good wall space.

    Reply
  • LaMar Alexander LaMar

    Nice staircase but it does take up valuable space in the house. Could be integrated with some more storage space for a laundry room under the stairs.

    The second loft is an idea I have included in plans and makes a great place to store you seasonal gear and clothes when not in use.

    This would make a nice park model but because of the weight I do not see anyone towing it much.

    I decided months ago to build my own – so I started getting my plans together. I made notes: why a square door?,why not a narrow staircase rather than a ladder?,why not enough windows to make it bright/espec. dormer windows,skylight? In my ideal – working shutters for at night, inside over the door a custom roller door to lock up when away traveling, inserts in floor for removable telescoping pedestals for dining table (like on a sailboat). Also, a small fold down (wall hinged) table for breakfast. A solar panel to top things off would be icing.

I need stairs. that’s the one thing that has stopped me from even thinking about a house on a trailer, those ladders would kill my back. I LOVE it!! this has just gone to the top of my wish list for when i buy a tiny house.

    This one, in my opinion is a short home run. I agree with previous posters that a standing seam roof much more in fitting, but I love the clear wood. Have you treated it at all, or are you going to let it age?
    My biggest concern with true “mobile” trailer tiny houses is wind speed at highway speeds dismantling your hard work. If it’s on a trailer only to skirt the bbuilding codes & permits, I’m all for it, and the composite roof is a good alternative.
    Purple is my favorite color, but it looks too trendy for my taste, but “I don’t live there”, and I believe you do what makes you feel good.
    Thanks for sharing this with the community!

    I like this but think the whole roof is messy. Just extend the shape of the bedroom loft all the way through, cover it with a metal roof. Would be easier to build and cheaper. Just a thought.

    This is definitely something I could live in for the rest of my life. It is beautiful!
    I do have a few concerns. I love that there is so much light streaming in, I think that is one of the most endearing qualities, however, what does that do to the tensile structural strength? If your tiny house is just going to sit on a lot, that is one thing, but let’s face it, one of the benefits of a tiny house on wheels and no mortgage payments is surely traveling around the country. Maybe even further (I have many friends in South America)
    I love that it has stairs rather than just a ladder, even if my 50 year old abused knees could continue to handle hauling a$$ up a ladder to sleep in a loft each night, I certainly couldn’t haul my 45lb boxer/pitt cross one. I have only seen stairs on one other model, can’t find them again, they were unique, must have been custom built, but genius- each riser was a drawer front- amazing storage!!
    big time kudos on aesthetics!!!!!! I am in love!!!

    I saw that the stated width was 9 foot. I thought that legally, it cannot exceed 8.5 feet. ?? I love the design, but hate the color. The rounded door top was great. I see a lot of people say that only one door is necessary. Safety wise, I would say that is a bad idea. In case of fire, 2 ways to egress is a must. I lived permanently in a 32′ trailer for 3 years in Florida, and all the units in that RV park had to have 2 doors. I believe this is now my favorite design, but I’m sure the cost would be above my pay grade. Oh well…I can still dream.

    The floor plan is great, but the outside is too dis-jointed. I really don’t care for the exterior at all. It is not very attractive, I don’t even care for the siding. The widows are cheap looking for the price tag of these units and are not consistant in size or placement. I also agree with the person who questioned the hodge podge of materials inside. Planning what you are going to do ahead of time would give the unit more harmony for sure. That said the floor plan inside is very nice.

    Alex,
    Who built this house? I am tired of being told we are limited to an 8’6″ width. This is clearly wider which makes the addtl options possible. Also, LOVE the staircase, but the builder needs to provide a better option for storage underneath. With a house that small, every bit of space is priceless.

    Very unique design! I could totally see using the large loft with a big flat screen tv, and a bunch of different pillows lying around using it as a media room, or even a cozy place to snuggle up and read a good book! The other loft has ample space for sleeping in my opinion, that would leave plenty of space downstairs for a small table and chairs, and also a desk area with even a bookshelf. You could still probably even have room for some sort of seating, a bench maybe, depending on what u were going for. ………..Maybe one day, in the meantime, thank goodness a girl can dream! :-)
