The Steam Punk Tiny House on Wheels by Tiny Smart House

This is the “Tiny SMART House” that was featured on Tiny House Hunters on HGTV.

What makes it “SMART”? Sustainable construction, modern efficiency, affordable luxury, residential or commercial, and tow-able anywhere. Designed with a “Steam Punk” vibe, the outside looks clean and classic with vertical and horizontal cream siding and grey trim. It’s tall and angular, providing plenty of space in a compact shell.

Inside you’ll notice floor to ceiling redwood siding with copper exposed plumbing, as well as an antique chandelier. An oven, stove-top and deep stainless steel kitchen sink provide the luxury of a regular kitchen and the corner seating area includes under-bench storage. There’s a breakfast nook, storage loft, and a completely closed off loft for sleeping. The bathroom has a remarkably unique corrugated metal shower, complete with more of the exposed copper plumbing.

    Not much to qualify as Steam Punk from my perspective.

  • Timothy McClanahan February 8, 2016, 3:13 pm

    Are these the right photos? I don’t see anything even remotely steam punk about this design.

  • Claire February 8, 2016, 3:59 pm

    While I too wouldn’t really consider this Steam Punk (needs a bit more than just exposed copper pipes and a penny floor in the bathroom, in my book ), it’s a well thought out design.
    Yes, there are a few things I would change, like making the stairs into more storage, but it also has some clever features (coffee table / storage box that fits into the seating area to make another bed, sliding doors to close off lofts when desired, sliding loft ladder) that I would love to see incorporated into many other TH’s.
    Overall, I put this one fairly high on the list even though there are a number of features I’d do differently. Is there anywhere to have a look at plans / dimensions etc?

    Steampunk? Put the opium pipe down, step away from the opium pipe…

  • Georgia February 8, 2016, 4:48 pm

    Several people have had very bad experiences with this company, and they are currently facing a couple of lawsuits. I would stay away from them. Read more here, including the comments section: http://tryingontiny.com/2013/10/26/why-we-wouldnt-recommend-our-builder/

    Beautiful, regardless. :)

  • Rob February 12, 2016, 1:24 pm

    I agree. I can’t really find anything remotely “steampunk” about this design. Am I missing something?

  • Carol February 14, 2016, 2:40 pm

    This Tiny Home has a few features I do like, the bathroom.
    I looked up “steampunk” (it’s one word) = taking something standard and elevating it, creativity being a key element. The bathroom shower (metal walls, penny floor, & exposed pipes) and the dining area wall insets would be considered steampunk.

  • Aaron March 8, 2016, 7:24 am

    It could use a bit more to make it steampunk but as is it makes it beautiful in simplicity with the open pipes. What otherwise might be hidden is made art yet practical. At least a plumbing problem can be worked on in the open and dealt with sooner. Love all of the design.

    Click on the “Steampunk” link within the post for the link to the actual “steampunk” version. It looks like a simple interior design retool of this model. It does have a little of the steampunk vibe to it, but I think someone really into the marriage of aesthetics and use that makes steampunk so visually striking could have done a lot more with the theme.

  • Mr Guadalupe Delarosa March 22, 2016, 8:44 am

    Would like to find out if its for sale and how much?

  • Carole March 24, 2016, 10:56 pm

    I’m another one….Steampunk? The only thing that might qualify it as such is the corrugated (and exposed pipe) shower, but even then, it’s a stretch.

    • Carole March 24, 2016, 10:59 pm

      Okay, just saw the comment about clicking on the link within the story. Not sure I’d consider that one Steampunk either, but it’s got a bit more of the vibe.

  • Marilyn Husson March 26, 2016, 3:16 pm

    I have suddenly found myself alone and homeless. My husband and I lived aboard our sailboat, 32’x 9′, small. Had to sell her to take care of him. Now living with a friend. My journey is to find a traveling nest, just as the boat was. My first thought was a pull behind trailer, max 22′.
    My ques. Is it very difficult to find places to rest? I always hear people having family w/ land. I have no family at this point. Are there places that let you stay without too much rent? I am on a journey, doing what we were to do together. My wish is to see a lot of this country, via National Parks and onto roads less traveled. This is probably a hard ques. to answer, maybe T.H. owners can chime in. It’s time to move on.
    Thank you for your time. Stay well, Marilyn

    • Annie March 27, 2016, 3:38 pm

      Marilyn – I’m so sorry about your present situation and only wish good things to enter your life from here forward. I don’t know where you live – I’m in Florida and the rules are so varied. Am looking to buy 3 acres in north Fl where mobile homes are allowed in the country and hope to either build a TH or one on wheels – whatever will work with local laws. It seems to me that there might be a network of TH owners throughout the US that could welcome other THers who are moving about – it would be worth checking into this – perhaps such a thing does exist among the “true believer” TH people [not the new breed who seem to have already made it into just another materialistic show-off acquisition]. It would take some research but worth connecting to others who can help. My best to you.

      I’m alone because my ex walked out years ago. Divorce is worse, because the ex always comes back to haunt you. However, I decided long ago that if I wanted something on wheels to travel with, I’d have a boat, on a trailer. Whether I built the boat myself, probably, including designing it, or bought one ready made, that is my preference. Actually the boat wouldn’t even need to be floatable. After all, who’s going to question it? Got the idea many moons ago, from reading about people with I believe it was Wesley Potters, using them as campers between travels to water for sailing. Those are small sailboats, maybe 14-15 feet, easily trailerable. Details escape me, because it was long ago, I’m not big into sailboats, even tho I do want to build a small cuddy cabin sailboat. My thing is steamboats, so would want about a 20 footer, all made by me, engine(s), paddle wheels, et al.

      • Rob April 9, 2016, 8:07 pm

        Theo, not a bad idea. There are many free sailboats being given away, which could be a jump start to your plan. Check Craigslist. Bear in mind that it is difficult to find an appropriate trailer. The sailboats you were referring to are West Wight Potters, and they indeed are used as campers while being towed to their destinations. They are what as known as trailer-sailors.

  • Theo April 9, 2016, 3:15 pm

    Nice woodwork. ‘Sort of’ steampunkish, but more ‘early plumbing’ to me. No handrail on the steps, again, yet, still. Could very easily put a bed downstairs, and do away with the lofts entirely, and lower the roofline at the same time. Me, I’d put a permanent dinette in, mainly because the table would be handy for writing, playing cards or games, et al, not so much for the eating part – can make do quite well with folding chairs and TV trays for eating. But then I’d have a bed that would lower onto the dinette and be supported for sleeping, or on the move. Raise it all other times, to make the dinette usable. Kill the lofts and the price would be less too.
