    I guess the name implies the cost, because it sure doe’s not refer to it’s amenities…! It’s a standard THO with a very nice paint job…!

  • Dominick Bundy December 2, 2016, 7:38 pm

    Kitchen way too big, and takes up too much space for being a tiny house. I rather condense it down a little more with maybe a two burner gas cook top , a toaster over or confection micro wave set up. the big stander sink is nice. But by making the kitchen a little less . then there could room for a closet.. this house Doesn’t have any closet space at all. also there would be a possibility for a side flip up wall table in the living area, to use for dining when needed or a desk top as well..

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie December 5, 2016, 8:56 am

      Yes it’s certainly a large kitchen. I was also thinking you could put built-in shelves in the loft and push the bed forward for more storage. — Tiny House Talk Team

      • Mame December 19, 2016, 1:31 am

        I agree about the kitchen being a bit large for a tiny home. It’s wonderful but I do think a little extra space for the sitting room area would be more beneficial. Wonderful loft; I believe I’d put closets up there for hanging clothes in the back wall and move the bed forward a bit… I’d also like to see some kind of railing as a security measure over the edge of the loft, but that’s an easy thing to do. I’m also not crazy about the appearance of the exterior cladding. Is that an easy fix?

  • Andy December 2, 2016, 8:04 pm

    I like the idea of expanding your loft and getting closer to an actual second floor but wouldn’t wanna sacrifice the head space in the main downstairs living area. But here is a different idea: why not use retractable hammock net that could be used as a chill-out area. You could even have people on the couch downstairs and people in the hammock net “upstairs” hanging out together. Would need to come up with a clever way of stowing away the net when not used. Maybe the whole contraption could be rolled rather than simply pulled across. Anyone with thoughts on that idea?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie December 5, 2016, 8:56 am

      That’s a cool idea! (except for my irrational fear of heights! haha). — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Susanne December 2, 2016, 9:16 pm

    Nice… Could put table for eating, then put tv up in loft , or
    Comfortable two seat sofa next to kitchen…

  • Great Grandma Ginny December 2, 2016, 10:06 pm

    Sorry, but this is not practical for living tiny. The kitchen is way, way to big unless you are cooking for a family of 10 3 x a day. With a smaller kitchen you would have space for a washer/dryer. Desperately need storage for everything other than dishes & pots & pans. Not going to put clothes in kitchen cabinets.

    The mirror in the bathroom should be a medicine cabinet. Need space to store linens. Definitely need a better way to actually stand on the floor in the loft instead of just peeking your head up at the top. And other than falling down the stairs how would the average person navigate to get onto that first step to go down.

    I usually leave only good reports or say nothing but this house has just to much that needs to be fixed before it would be a practical tiny house. Somehow you guys missed the point. I hope you can fix it. Good luck. Sorry.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie December 5, 2016, 9:00 am

      I do think it’s interesting because the kitchen looks so huge, but a lot of the storage there could be used to house non-kitchen items, so it doesn’t have to be “wasted” on just kitchen-y things. Just a thought! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Comet December 2, 2016, 10:51 pm

    A long time ago some one asked me–Looks? or performance? I said then–Both! And I say it now. And this place—well; it seems to have looks; but as far as performances–it seems to have little in the way of practical real life living needs. Unless you got down on your knees and then TRIED to find that first ladder rung—you would be in the ER real fast. You could add furniture to the loft to hold clothing etc–but it would have to be secured so as to not shift when moving–which is another point; how easy IS this to move? The kitchen also looks lovely and large but–at what sacrifice for other living and storage space? The toilet off in the corner of the room is something else that looks poorly thought out.

    Looks—-or performance?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie December 5, 2016, 9:01 am

      My thought for the loft is built-in storage at the end (perhaps even fairly deep since there’s so much room up there) — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Mike S December 2, 2016, 10:53 pm

    While the kitchen does look a little bit oversized, the layout is very creative. I love how the ladder goes up through the middle of the loft, keeping it out of the way of the penninsula and kitchen entry, and easily accessible at all times. Not as impressed with the living area or bathroom, but this could be great for someone who loves to cook!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie December 5, 2016, 9:02 am

      Love your positive attitude 🙂 It could be a great entertaining house where everyone wants to hang out in the kitchen, sip wine and eat great food haha — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Dick December 3, 2016, 12:07 am

    To me, the solution is to make the home longer, say, 30′. Assuming the kitchen and bath remain unchanged, you’d have around 40 sf more for the living room.

    I generally like this one, especially the idea of transom/clerestory windows to help cool the home in the summer and reduce reliance on air conditioning. The only problem, as has already been noted, is lack of storage space, although a storage staircase would help a lot there, as well as some built-ins in the loft.

    Cost? Since the company is headquartered in Sacramento, CA, $60k is extremely reasonable. I say that knowing I can buy a 1500 sf 3BR 2BA in a small town in south central Missouri for $65k right now. (Hey, my wife has family there and they’ve been dropping strong hints for us to move.) But on the west coast, this TH is priced very competitively, when you think of average home prices. And, with a couple of changes, it’d make a good home for a single or a couple.

    • oxide December 3, 2016, 9:38 am

      Priced competitively compared to houses in the area??!? Whut! Houses in CA — or anywhere — are expensive because the LAND is valuable, not the structure! A house in boonie Missouri is only $65K because it’s not within driving distance of thousands of $180K/year dot-com app jobs. Since this is a mobile house, you know, ON WHEELS, the house cost should be irrelevant to the build location.

      I’m not sure tiny house people have figured out the land issue yet. Even if you could get Sacramento to approve zoning for tiny houses, the plot of land (with hookup, remember) will cost more than the house. In San Fran, the same land will cost hundreds of thousands of $.

      • Natalie C. McKee Natalie December 5, 2016, 9:06 am

        I don’t think a tiny house cost is irrelevant to the builder’s location at all. For a couple reasons. #1 The builder’s cost to operate are going to be higher in CA than in Missouri. His office space costs more, the taxes are probably higher, etc. so that’s going to translate into his prices. And #2 The builder’s main “audience” is people in CA looking to go tiny. The folks in CA know what they’d have to pay for a house on land (and might have that $180K/year job), so they’re willing to pay more for a tiny house than the folks in Missouri who could buy a better home for less money. — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Andrea Hardy December 3, 2016, 12:51 am

    I wanted to love it, but the kitchen should be 1/3 the size! It’s cute though

  • Eric December 3, 2016, 1:05 am

    I’m constantly bemused by the, how can I say this delicately?, weird names they give different models. Kilimanjaro? What does this house have in common with a mountain in Africa? Nada!

    And there are numerous examples throughout the site of inappropriate names for Tiny Homes. It’s as ridiculous as many car names for crying out loud.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie December 5, 2016, 9:08 am

      Well, the name of the company is Tiny “Mountain” Homes, so I think they are being clever by giving their homes mountain names. It’s like how jeans at some stores are named after people: “The Clara.” It makes no sense, but it helps with advertising because instead of “blue jeans with high waist” you can say, oh I’d like “The Lindsey” jeans. That being said, I don’t defend all tiny house names haha. — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Laura Akong December 3, 2016, 11:02 am

    I love the way it shows the price. Everything is perfect in my opinion. You guys did a beautiful job from all color choosing layout everything. Only thing I wish it had a floor plan drawn to show. Beautiful beautiful

  • Adam December 3, 2016, 2:13 pm

    Nice house, but I feel like its wrong to butt a stove and refrigerator together. I could be wrong but in my mind the heat from the stove would make the refrigerator to have to work harder than it should. Think turkey for thanks giving, or baking bread. 😀 idk. Fridge, sink, stove seems a better order.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie December 5, 2016, 9:10 am

      Many people hate that combo! I have it in our apartment, and it’s never bothered me, but I can see the concern! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • jm December 3, 2016, 7:39 pm

    I though lofts were dead but here we have a pretty good compromise. Seems like some nice headroom that you would really need during sex. Otherwise, you probably don’t need it.

  • ROSEE December 4, 2016, 4:49 pm

    A lovely TH, but not for me. Sorry!

  • Donna January 27, 2017, 11:46 pm

    Having never been fond of stove/frig next to each other, it’s SO much better than seeing stove next to a doorway which to me is an accident waiting to happen! Imho, I think newer appliances have better insulation, taking away the worry of temp differentials, at least I hope so. I do like the big kitchen and prefer the breakfast bar to a table.
    I would also like to thank you for posting a follow up ‘after’ post about this home in Jan 2017, showing how the new owner put her personal touches to it. Great idea, thank you!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee January 30, 2017, 7:33 am

      She approached us and I’m so happy she did! Great to see her changes. Our apt. has stove/fridge side by side and honestly it’s never caused us any trouble.
