The idea is they will build the structure and leave the inside empty and open to the creativity of the buyer. It’s considerably less expensive, at $22,000, compared to their Twenty-Footer model.
Just like the Twenty-Footer, the Half/Half model comes with SIPs walls and roof, Newtechwood lifetime recycled siding, windows, door, and all of the utility lines roughed in. Water, sewer, power, and gas lines are pre-installed.
“We build the first half” means the heavy lifting is done. “You finish the second half” means creative, custom interior design is in your hands. – Monarch Tiny Homes
I thought you might enjoy an updated tour of Art’s SIP tiny house on wheels so you can learn more about how he lives tiny. Art actually parks and lives behind his rock climbing business. Pretty cool, right?
If you’ve been a reader for a long time you’re probably already familiar with Art and his Structurally Insulated Panel tiny house on wheels but in this video based post you’ll get to learn a lot more about him, his lifestyle, and his tiny house on wheels.
Art is also a presenter for Tumbleweed Tiny Houses where he teaches other people how to build tiny houses too. In this video the awesome people behind Tiny House Giant Journey take us directly into his tiny house where he’s been living simply for the last few years. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
When Brian Levy set himself out to design a tiny house he wanted to create something that was comfortable long-term, sustainable for the environment yet still stylish, and he didn’t want to compromise anywhere. He believed the Minim Home should feel amazing throughout. He’s also the founder of Micro Showcase, a place dedicated to showcasing micro buildings.
When you take the tour of his 210 sq. ft. modern tiny house below I think you’ll agree that he accomplished all of those goals with this 11′ wide by 22′ long footprint home. Sure it’s a wide load, but Brian’s logic is sound. Most little houses spend most of their time being lived in, not moved. So it makes sense to go wider.
And yes, the home is still built right onto a trailer so your home can be towed and moved when and if you ever wanted or needed to move it. When you go inside you’ll find all of the comforts of home. A kitchen, multi-functioning table, stools, sofa with room for five people, giant projector screen for entertainment, roll out bed (instead of a loft), 5’x7′ office area, 5′ closet, bathroom, and bookcase that holds 150+ books.
Brian Levy’s Modern & Genius 210 Sq. Ft. Minim Tiny Home
If you include the upstairs sleeping loft space and outdoor space there’s a total of 450 sq. ft. of living space. Originally it was designed as a weekend cottage but I can see how it can be used for full time simple living.
The Crib is environmentally friendly since it’s built using sustainable and recycled materials plus solar power and water collection can easily be integrated into the design. One of my favorite parts about it is the garage door that opens up the space to the outside.
Another feature that will probably also amaze you is the multi-functional entertainment center with flat screen TV that opens up and turns the main living area into an amazing office space. Talk about awesome! Please enjoy, watch the video tour below, talk about it all in the comments, and re-share if you’d like to.
