    The craftsmanship is outstanding. Show me more!

    This is so cute and it is also very roomy looking. I didn’t notice a frig however. The one thing I thought was a bit to small was the shower area. I think I may have forgone the back door for a bigger shower area.

      These homes are all custom made. You want a fridge, they’ll put one in. Go to their web site and inquire. You’ll be surprised.

    • Rob October 28, 2016, 2:17 am

      Oh, and if you want a larger shower – I didn’t see one and assume this build doesn’t include an actual shower area. Probably the only way you can shower is to sit down on either the toilet seat or use it while you shower at the same time. Not a bad idea actually.

      On the other hand, make the length a bit larger by 3-5 feet and you can then have one nice large shower area. If you can imagine it, they can build it; according to their web site.

        Those are all valid ways to improve it πŸ™‚ And yes, builders love doing custom work so if you want one I’m sure they will try and accommodate you! — Tiny House Talk Team

    Beautiful wood working, but not comfortable.

      Really? It looks very warm and comfortable to me, especially that little cove bed. I could stay in there for hours with my iPad and watch good movies. I love this tiny house immensely!

    Folklore in accordance with history. Processing of very fine wood. Encharting

    I love Vardo’s and I am assuming that was the kind of look they were going for here.. I loved almost every thing about the house except the bathroom, and kitchen area. With all they have achieved here with all the beautiful woodwork to fall short there did not do this house justice at all.. I would have added a wood burning stove as well to complete the look within the house, as that heating element looks totally out of place as well.. Oh and one of the door ways there is a few screws pertruding from the wall and should have been covered with some wood molding as well… But other then those few short falls, I loved the house..!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 28, 2016, 7:29 am

      I think a lot of vardos are designed without bathrooms, etc., but yes — I always like plumbing! πŸ™‚ Glad you liked it! — Tiny House Talk Team

      • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN October 28, 2016, 8:14 am

        You are correct in your assessment of the majority of Vardo’s , they don’t usually have any plumbing, or very limited plumbing.. But seeing how this builder chose to incorporate a bathroom and full kitchen in it’s design, is only reason as to expect the obvious and complete what they have started… Half measures never avail us nothing…!

  • Claude October 27, 2016, 9:04 pm

    Very exotic, lots of fancy quality work involved. Like it a lot.

  • Susanne October 27, 2016, 10:44 pm

    Well it’s different..

  • Carol Perry October 28, 2016, 9:04 am

    I love the shape of the home both inside and outside, it’s very unique!! The woodwork is so rich in color, and the curvature of the wooden arches throughout the home are just beautiful! Love all the windows and the enclosed bedroom, it’s very interesting!! The front door is gorgeous, love all the details, especially the stars!! It looks like a fun place to live and explore your dreams!???

  • Sally Schrock October 28, 2016, 5:52 pm

    This is so enchanting in every which way! I could see myself living there 24/7 and never wanting to leave. A lot of hard work, love and creativity went into the execution and design. Incredible!

  • Nanny M October 29, 2016, 3:38 am

    Charming and romantic. I can see Snow White living there.

  • Nancy M. October 29, 2016, 1:57 pm

    Love this one!

  • Sarah October 29, 2016, 2:36 pm

    I think this is very cozy! I love all the wood and the arched
    “snuggle up with my needlework” area (maybe you’re not familiar with that LOL).

  • Eileen Anderson October 30, 2016, 11:59 am

    Oh my..I just LOVE it the absolulely most !!! I so want to live here !!!

  • Lantz November 1, 2016, 2:12 am

    Vardo meet Baggins.

  • ZACHARY E. MOHRMANN November 2, 2016, 11:05 am

    And again very nice…!

  • Nancy November 6, 2016, 12:26 am

    I like everything, cept the weird looking stairs to get up to the loft. IMHO, I think a spiral staircase would be safer.

  • Ariel Miller February 1, 2017, 5:11 pm

    How much? I think i would change out the blue plastic bucket in the wash room for a pounded copper sink bowl but seriously this is as good as it gets. This is what tiny houses should be, not sheds on wheels.

  • Patty February 1, 2017, 10:53 pm

    Really gorgeous!

  • Liz Elms March 21, 2017, 10:17 pm

    This is well-crafted and so cozy. One thing I worry about is the size of the windows in the lofts. What if there is a fire and you are in one of them…how do you get out if you can’t exit downstairs? I’d like to climb out from the roof plus a better view of the stars.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee March 22, 2017, 8:18 am

      Yes a point of egress is certainly important in any tiny house!
