Rustic Glamour Tiny Home by Mint Tiny House Company

This is a Rustic Glamour tiny home on wheels built by Mint Tiny House Company.


It was a custom build designed to the new owner’s personal taste. The home features the very popular and stylish white-on-dark-wood color scheme that makes the space feel warm and rustic while also appearing open and glamorous. The kitchen has my favorite fridge, a retro Smeg, and the bathroom includes glass shower doors and clean, chic subway tiles.

Open kitchen featuring the Smeg and a stacked washer/dryer.


Huge farmhouse sink perfect for washing dishes.

An almost-spiral staircase leads to the main loft.

The dark wooden ceilings add warmth to the space.

A secondary loft for sleeping and/or storage.

They combined the bathroom door and the ladder. Clever!

    When i initially saw, “rustic glamour” in the title…..I was like “that sounds like an oxymoron”. Until i saw the pictures and i was completely blown away. The house is really rustic and glamourous at the same time.

    Very nice looking rustic glamourous tiny house

    Beautiful work done here by Mint Tiny Homes. That being said, I am not a huge fan of the design, which was a custom job. The kitchen appears to take up at least half the house — way too big. And again, my #1 complaint, there’s barely a living/sitting area — room for one chair…? It’s just not practical for daily living, sorry to say. People often add a second loft for a lounging area/watching TV. Again, really not practical, at least not for sitting up — not enough head room to be truly comfortable – (not to mention, in this case, having to climb up some pipes bolted onto a sliding door!!). So in the long run, I think those second lofts have only cut out valuable head room and the beauty of a high ceiling. With TH’s, everything seems to be about being “clever”, but what about practical? Or is there just no room for that?

      I agree with Marie!
      A kitchen large enough to serve a family, but a living room for one?

      Come on!

      No, I believe the truly clever can be practical but it depends what the priorities are for the owner it is designed for…

      For someone who likes to cook but lives alone and doesn’t entertain then this might indeed work for them…

      Opt for a combo washer dryer instead of two units means taking longer to do the laundry but helps free up space that in addition with other compromises could have freed up more room for the living space…

      If the owner is not too tall, the lofts can be lowered to give more headroom… Alternatively, the lofts can be over something that doesn’t need a lot of head room…

      Like if the kitchen was turned into a galley kitchen and put in the middle then a couch can be put against that side of the house and the loft can be lowered half ways for plenty of head room…

      Or you could reverse the loft and place that space near the floor and put the couch/living space above it… Saves climbing stairs to go to bed and can still have good space for the living space…

      Or use a Murphy bed that can convert into a couch and/or other furniture like a table/desk and self (can be all three) and you can avoid the loft all together…

      This company isn’t too bad, their workmanship is pretty good but their designs do need more thinking out…

      Putting the washer/dryer right next to the range/oven without any barrier between them is not good for the longevity of those appliances… They could have moved it over a half inch and added a splash guard panel between… Raise the dryer just three inches and a pull out sorting table could have been placed right in between…

      The bathroom vent should have been placed right above the shower instead of in the opposite side of the bathroom, where the steam will flow over most of the ceiling before it can be vented…

      Etc… each is a small consideration on its own but they all add up and makes one wonder on how long before this house will start needing repairs and remodeling…

      It’s not an ideal set-up for me either, but like you mentioned, it was custom. So I’m supposing the woman or man who purchased it wanted it set up this way. Sometimes builders create things they don’t even really like because “the customer is always right” haha! You should check out the other models by Mint Tiny Homes (the ones that they personally designed) and see if those are less clever and more practical.

    I absolutely adore this one😍. This one is worth sharing twice

  • Kathleen Veltsos May 4, 2017, 4:02 pm

    I have to agree with Marie. One chair does not make it a living room. It’s so beautiful but it would be hard to invite someone for a movie and climb a ladder to watch it. I do really love the style and colors but the setup is a little difficult.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee May 5, 2017, 5:27 am

      I’m guessing that it was made for maybe one person? It’s a custom build, so whoever commissioned it must have been ok with the smaller living space. Maybe she loved cooking? Also this might not be the forever furniture she uses. Many builders have stage furniture they use for pictures and then the new owners will add what they love 🙂

    The SEXIEST floors I’ve ever seen!

  • Bonnie May 4, 2017, 11:50 pm

    There are some things I love about this tiny home. I love all the bookcases, I’m a bibliophile…for one..and the woodstove is wonderful! And I was thinking lose another window and put in a small englenook in the living area…bliss!
    The window in the kitchen I would have made solid so it could.accomodate a fold down tabletop..the farm style sink is cool but too large in the scheme of things…but everyone to their own taste…

  • Lisa May 5, 2017, 12:04 am

    This would be perfect for me. The washer/dryer combo is something I really want and the kitchen is perfect!!! As someone else commented, living alone I don’t need much sitting space. Love this design. 🙂

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee May 5, 2017, 5:11 am

      I really liked having both a washer and dryer too! In a former apartment I had them in the kitchen, and it worked out great 🙂

    Won’t that glass shower enclosure break, when traveling? How do they keep that from happening? Can’t the tiles in the shower crack, during travel?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee May 5, 2017, 5:10 am

      I know some builders are using a more flexible type of grout/adhesive to keep that from happening! It’s certainly something to talk to the builder about to see how much travel those elements can withstand without breakage and what kind of warranty you might be able to expect.
