Tennessee Tiny Homes

In this post you’ll get to meet Joe Everson and his Tennessee Tiny Homes.

It’s a small company based in Memphis, TN and they’ve just completed their first tiny house on wheels which that’s for sale right now.

Joe is planning on building more little homes in the future and on this post you get to see his first design.

It’s built on a heavy-duty 8’×16′ trailer with square tubing and a 6″ tongue.

Joe used 2×4 framing with 3″ screwed and glued sheathing. All siding that you see in the exterior is cedar wood.

The porch measures in at 8′ x 3′. Take a look at what they did with the porch ceiling below.

With an asking price of just $30,000, it’s something you might want to consider especially if doing it yourself is just not for you.

The small window at the top here brings in great sunlight for the entrance. The all wood interior measures in at 8′x12.5′. Below you can take a tour inside.

Notice the sunlight coming through the top octagon window in the photo above. By the way the windows used throughout the house are Low-E ThermaStar by Pella.

One of my favorite details of this house is the hardware used. The ladder, the sliding bathroom door and the railing along the top of the loft and in the kitchen give the small home a modern feel, would you agree?

The fresh looking kitchen comes with a stainless steel bar sink and appliances (microwave, convection/toaster oven, hot plate stove and small refrigerator). There is also a 6 gallon electric water heater for washing dishes and showering.

In the photo above you can see part of the built in couch and cabinets along with the vinyl flooring.

Slide open the door in the kitchen and welcome to your bathroom with a composting toilet.

Along with a custom metal shower with Moen hardware.

A 30″ flat screen TV with a fold down space saving table gives more walking space in the living area. Joe installed 30 amp power and 120 volt wiring with 5 outlets. Not pictured is also a portable 8,000 btu air condition unit and small electric fireplace. Below you can get a close look at the sleeping loft which has footlockers for storage and wood flooring.

Everything pictured is included  in the price. Joe is willing to deliver this tiny house to buyer with a delivery charge of cost of gas both ways. If you’re seriously interested in buying this home, you can get in touch with Joe over on his Facebook. And be sure to tell him Alex from TinyHouseTalk.com sent you. Thanks!

    I’m quite happy to see a design like this. A couple friends of mine shun the idea of living in a tiny house on wheels not because of the size, but because they feel it would be “rustic” and “too much like camping.” Tennessee Tiny Homes has taken that notion and thrown it out the window by incorporating a clean, modern look that tells a potential owner they don’t have to compromise between sustainable living and personal comfort. Well done.

      Thanks Roseann I’m glad that you liked it. I agree it looks like it has a nice feel to it inside and out.

    It is wonderful to see such a beautiful design by someone so close by. So often the designers (and homes) are so far away from me…. this is soooo much better. Joe did a terrific job – I would be interested in something like this…. wonder if he will do some a bit larger tho (there are 2 of us & this would be a tight fit) – He has awesome skill and sight! Would love to see something the size of a mid-century mobile home – without a loft (too old for all those ladders, sorry)……. Thanks for sharing!!

      Hi Kat, I’m sure he’d be willing to go a little bit larger. Glad that you saw this post and learned about a builder that’s near you. Maybe you can go and check it out. I encourage you to get in touch with him. Thanks Kat!

    This has to be the most impressive, stylish, & modern version of this style of Tiny Home that I’ve seen yet! You’re absolutely right about the hardware, rails, and sliding ladder & door… they’re great touches, and the color scheme was really a brilliant decision – thanks for sharing!

    Very nice, I like the concept, But have 2 concerns. #1. I don’t see any place for food storage, or for dishes pots and pans. #2. the compost toilet seems to be too close to the sliding door.making it unable to close if one has to use it.

      There is plenty of room to close the door the pic just doesnt show it.

        There is ample storage under the sink as well in the living room area/ cabinets.

    Interesting design- I like the kitchen layout.

    Headroom in that loft looks very narrow.

    I would like to know the dimensions if possible ?

    Alex,
    Could I buy the plans for this house? Do you know anyone who owns the plans? I think this is the house for me. I am trying to find grant money to build a community for low income people, homeless and college students because of the rise in tuition. Do you have any ideas for me? Any financial places to look? I really like this modle and if you could find the plans, I would love to build one.
    Peace!
    Jenton

    Really wonderful, plus I love the option of perhaps having him build one upfront for me, since it’s transportable. I’m on the east coast, and it seems like most of this movement is out west. I’d love a 2 BR, with stairs, that I could move again in a couple of years if I want to relocate. Thanks!

    What is the economic advantage of these “tiny” homes other than the obvious ones of building cost, and heating/cooling? I have 6.5 acres in east Tennssee and would like to build some “out” buildings and wonder if this method of building has advantages in terms of building code, property taxes, etc. Is there anyone who can set me on the path to new discovery? Thanks!

      Hi Walter, sure. They can save you on:

      – taxes
      – permits
      – utilities

      Let me know if you have any other questions. Basically they’re a custom built RV but you can also just leave them registered as a trailer. Folks do it differently depending on state.

    This house is amazing! Everything you need and then some. Very well done. I am totally going to incorporate 65% of your kitchen. :-) I LOVE red… I usually wear/mix it with black. But this house is the best argument FOR painting wood that I have EVER seen. (I loathe painting and unless I could afford to hire someone to do it for me every few years… yeah, NO! lol) When will they come up with a ONE TIME paint?

    I can’t wait to see photos of your latest build. Unfortunately you are much too far away for me to attend a showing. Good luck! I am sure you won’t need luck because you are blessed with SKILL.

    Love this house, but the loft is too small… Is the matress hidden in the design.? Justooking at it makes me think of suffocating. Sorry to say because ur work is awesome.

    Is there a way to give the loft a mortgage open feel? I could make a murphy bed that hugs the living room wall which also functions as a drop down desk (a board in the belly of the underside of the bed which is the face of the murphy) and put kids in the loft…. We would use this for camping not everyday living. U make custom orders and deliver to Wisconsin?
