    A modern design without trying to copy appearance of a stationary house. Without the lofts and less overall height it would be one to consider. Didn’t find any price and weight information.

    So fresh and clean, I am in love!

    Wow… very nicely done! I like the use of the stacked washer and dryer vs the all-in-one style.

    i love this careful detailing inside and out…the rhythm of the window patterns is very well done, making for a beautiful exterior, and rational interior as well.

    very nice layout and great curb appeal.

    This is a beautiful tiny house except for the ladder. Any time I see a Ladder it posses a question: If you break a leg or an arm, are you going to be able to go up and down before you pee yourself in the middle of the night or day without breaking something else.
    If your not convinced try this simple experiment: Take two boards and tie them to your leg so there’s no way you can bend it, then tie the opposite arm behind you, and start climbing that ladder, and be sure to have a bud spot you so you don’t hurt yourself while trying it. When you climb, go all the way up and off the ladder and then come back down. 3 to 5 times should be enough to let you know how big of a danger it would be if you had to do it every day for three or four months.

      Generally, if you can afford a house in the 60K to 150K range, which this sells for, then you can probably afford to have a lift installed for those few months or have it designed with stairs to begin with if your budget and max tow weight allows it…

      Besides, you don’t need to sleep in the loft as this has two ground floor sleeping options… You also don’t have to get a ladder at all, remember this is a custom design and it was designed for what the owner wanted…

      While lofts can be for storage or guest bed or for those with kids… Lofts can also be designed to be lowered and raised as needed, rather than only static designs… Along with alternatives like reverse lofts that flip the arrangement and puts the loft on the bottom and what would otherwise be on floor level above the loft…

      Ladders can also be designed with climbing rail, safety harness clips, and even an escalator type rotating design…

      While you can also opt for spiral staircase, which similarly can be placed to use less space than traditional stairs, lifts, other climbing systems.

      Some loft ladders can extend down and out to be used more like stairs…

      Most options can be swapped and you don’t generally need to worry about being stuck with one…

      Some stairs can be integrated into the cabinetry, walls, etc. and slide out when you need to use them as another way to keep the space open…

      Lots of options and not the end of the world if it comes with one option that may not work out for you…

        I stand by my first statement, ladders are dangerous. Although this was a custom build for one person, it still stands as your example. If your example had a staircase instead of a ladder then, I’d be cool with it, but it doesn’t. You have a great house here but the ladder idea isn’t good in any situation.

          Leigh Jackson, you’re entitled to your opinion…

          However, just to clarify, I am neither the builder nor the owner of this THOW… I’m only commenting to put into context what is actually being shown and point out what you’re apparently not considering…

          Specifically, the owner of this THOW had it designed specifically for their needs, so it’s not an example of anything but how someone else chose to have their house designed to fit how they want to live.

          While you’re entitled to your opinion, understand so too are the owners of this THOW and there are reasons why people make such choices that are perfectly valid, even if you disagree with them.

          The reality is there will always be trade offs and levels of risk are an inherent part of those trade offs which you will never fully eliminate, as nothing is 100% safe, and thus what is ultimately the most practical and efficient solution for a given lifestyle is often what is chosen… What people consider acceptable risk will just vary.

          This doesn’t mean ladders have no downside, they of course do, only that there are reasons why people choose them anyway because either the alternatives won’t work well enough for them or it’s the only solution that fits their specific needs.

          Besides, IMO, everyone has the right to live their life however they choose and what risks they take, so long as they are aware of the risks and are not putting anyone else at risk, are up to them and them alone…

    Too heavy, too tall, too costly, it has useless loft beds.
    Looks great and nice interior.

    • James D. November 19, 2017, 9:10 am

      Useless depends on your usage needs… Even with a bedroom, if you need a guest bed, bed for kids, room for privacy or other specialty needs, or just additional long term storage space that won’t fit on the ground level without making the entire structure bigger and much heavier then it’s a viable solution to consider.

      The fact they have two additional bedding options on the ground floor suggest having more than one sleeping option was important to the owners…

      Besides, the owners of this obviously disagree because that’s how they had it designed… Generally, nothing in a custom design is useless because everything is what the owner wanted… It just may be useless to someone else but that doesn’t matter unless they intend to sell it at a later date, till then what’s in it just has to fit the needs and preferences of the owners and no one else, but it’s not like the lofts can’t be removed…

      One of the advantages of a Tiny House that is built like a house is that they’re generally easier and less costly to remodel/renovate than Pre-Fab and other manufactured options and many people can even opt to do much or all of it themselves.

    So Yes, beds for the all necessities, events, and preferences.
