The Wedge 400 Sq. Ft. Cabin by Wheelhaus

In this post I’m showing you the Wedge cabin designed by Wheelhaus. It’s a luxurious 400 sq. ft. cabin with 100 sq. ft. front porch measuring 12′ x 34′.

In the past, you might remember this little cabin before when I was discussing the future of tiny house communities (and unfortunately- why they hardly exist). Right now we get to have a closer look at this beautiful tiny house concept.

Believe it or not, this is a rolling cabin (on wheels) which means it is mobile. It’s classified as a park model RV home. Please enjoy and re-share below.

    PRetty but–the plans seem to show a different lay out entirely!

    And–serious LACK of places to put–anything. Those tree trunk night stands are pretty–but completely IMPRACTICLE. Much better to have ones with drawers or shelves to stash things in.

    These stripped out places look nice and then you start to think–where do your CLOTHES go? A book or thousand? If there is no place to even put a water bottle or your reading glasses–then it’s now well thought out for actual living. And the kitchen—well—it looks as if there is a DW and a small fridge and pretty much NO place to put the actual–dishes. Or a pot or pan!

    Looks or performance?

    Pretty design tho and could be tweaked and re-furnished! IF some one happened to leave it in my driveway that is!

      Oh this was funny!! I just popped over from another post where you’re selling courses in downsizing and getting over a hoarding habit, and here you are talking about not having enough room for clothes and books and kitchen stuff…oops 🙂 Sounds like time for a call to your Hoarders Anonymous sponsor?? Liked the creative spelling of impractical, too. Thanks for the grins, it’s been a long day. 🙂

    • StefCreatures March 22, 2015, 1:20 pm

      Clearly you have never lived RVing life style. I lived in an 18 foot camper for years with my husband, 2 kids (one of them an older teen) with a 3rd kid visiting, 3 large breed dogs, 1 small dog, and we did just fine. Who needs 1000 books??? Once you read it, get rid of it, and get another. There is no room to keep things you don’t need. You only have what you use and that’s it. You find creative ways to store the things you need and you DO LAUNDRY, not let it pile up or you don’t have clothes to wear cause they are all dirty. When you don’t spend your money on STUFF, you have the money to spend on yourself doing things. You get rid of clothes you have had a little while to make room for new. Trust me, its more then possible and for someone to knock it that hadn’t tried it… well, all I can say is, wow, look at all that room. We had so much less for so long… Yes, its doable… Only if you want it to be and you don’t attatch yourself to THINGS, cause you will be getting rid of EVERYTHING you do not currently use or need…

    • RyGuy May 27, 2015, 4:54 pm

      Your comment makes you sound like a real tool. But I’m sure you already know that.

  • Marsha Cowan September 19, 2014, 2:54 pm

    I have always loved this house! It is roomy and well laid out, and the upper windows are a great addition. How hard would it be to add a loft, maybe over the kitchen so it would not tKe away from the living room height and appeal? Would wheelhouse make any changes to their plan?

  • Marsha Cowan September 19, 2014, 2:57 pm

    The plans show an island with four bar stools between the kitchen and living room. I like that, but even in the kitchen shown, I would add a slender butcher block or serving table. Love this plan and this company!

  • Gloria September 19, 2014, 6:46 pm

    WOW, this is GORGEOUS. It might be tiny, but I can see that it was NOT tiny in price for how this home is decked out! Top-of-the-line stuff. Very impressive. However, I think the theme of a ‘tiny home’ is someone being on a budget. THIS person sure wasn’t! LOL! But, nevertheless, it is beautiful and, again, very impressive with what they put into the tiny house!
    Best,
    Gloria

    • Paul September 19, 2014, 11:32 pm

      Not on a budget? I’m sure it was… just not the kind of budget that you envisage… i.e. a high end budget.

      I see nothing wrong with having a relatively expensive tiny home. If it works for you and you can afford it, then why not?

      Think of the benefits… real nice home but small and practical from a cleaning/storage point of view. If to them it is beautiful it will do wonders for their psyche and well being (gads, first time in my life I have ever used THAT word lqtm).

      Also known as, diffr’nt strokes for diffr’nt folks.

      • Cahow September 20, 2014, 7:30 pm

        I’m with you, Paul…if you can afford this, then why the heck not? And if you can’t afford it, the ideas are FREE!!!

        In my client’s world, $90K buys a luxury car. $90K is the yearly cost for private school for two of their kids. $90K is probably the total for what they pay their dog walker, nannies (plural) and their house keeper.

        It’s all relative to how much you earn and how much you want to pay out. Some folks make coffee at home to save money, some people spend a buck at McD’s and others have custom-crafted $5.00 specialty coffee drinks each day. As long as everyone’s happy with their “coffee” (translate: house) then it doesn’t matter how little or how much you paid for it. 😀

        • Alex September 21, 2014, 2:58 pm

          LOL, well put! And true, there are people of all walks of life. But in today’s world I must say we desperately need more lovely *and* affordable [tiny/small] homes. Thanks for the perspective. It’s always appreciated 🙂

    • Alex September 20, 2014, 10:42 am

      Thanks Gloria 🙂

  • Comet September 20, 2014, 12:12 am

    to @CHARLOTTE MO—

    Sorry you have me confused with the person selling the Hoarder Classes–we DO seem to share a screen name but I am not them nor they–me.

    And so happy to amuse you with my spelkling

    • Charlotte MO September 20, 2014, 12:43 am

      Oh no, who is the true Comet! How weird you both popped up on the same day. I thought you were making a clever play on particle board since you were also talking about trees. I am a collector myself, this place is not cozy to me either, looks like a gyno office waiting room. The cabinets look like science class (particle board) :-).

      • Doris September 22, 2014, 11:04 pm

        Are you Charlotte from Atlanta area with the pink Scotty camper at a Rodeo this summer? You talked to several retired teachers in FL about TH parking for the winter? If so, please contact Sally ASAP. She has a vacancy on river frontage, you and the dogs would be welcome. If this is another case of mistaken identity on this thread, please disregard. Thank you, Alec, for your patience. Not soliciting: it’s barter, not rent.

      • Trish May 2, 2015, 4:50 pm

        ” … looks like a gyno off waiting room.” Bahaha. Never heard an abode described in those terms.

        That is definitely my quote of the day!!!

  • Doris September 20, 2014, 12:18 am

    Finally, a tiny house that my tall nephews can stand up in without bumping their heads. This design would work wonderfully in those lakeside communities where people have zero lot lines between houses. The window placement allows sunshine, trees and privacy. The overall structure looks like it would help buffer noise from the close neighbors, too, while providing the nice view the owners paid for. Very clean and open, yet restful.

  • Alberto September 21, 2014, 4:06 am

    Its nice to finally see pictures of the inside of these cabins. I remember we had seen just a picture of the 3 cabins from the front, as they were part of a resort. Design is very similar to the Caboose, but without that loft in the middle. I like how the living room as some level of privacy, with those windows higher up.

  • Denise September 21, 2014, 11:59 pm

    These park model houses are a far cry from the old particle board rectangular single wides with stretched aluminum electrical wire in the walls that were notorious for catching fire back in the 60’s and 70’s. It’s apparent that both this model and the Caboose have a lot of quality put in. There are only two changes I would make to them. For both this one and the Caboose, there doesn’t seem to be a ceiling fan and in the wintertime that is a whole lot of high space to be heating where you don’t get the benefit of the heat. A ceiling fan with a light would be an easy addition and would save money on winter heating bills, plus with the light, you can dim down the other lights and set the mood for the evening. With regard to the Caboose alone, I would drop the ceiling loft a bit and raise the ceiling, if possible, so that one can stand erect up there. In an actual tiny house, one expects to be crouched over in a loft, but since this feels like a normal small house, being hunched over in the loft would feel awkward and can get old pretty quick. Otherwise, these are great homes and look like they are built to last a long time.

  • Karen November 6, 2014, 12:30 pm

    Very pretty with a floor plan similar to my tiny (just over 400 square feet) modular, but I have a loft (great for guests and my builder, Lil’ Lodges, now offers hinged roof lofts that can be raised to full height), a half bath, AND A MUCH LOWER PRICE TAG. My husband and I have space for our (edited) collections, too.

    • Suz May 3, 2016, 3:15 pm

      Sorry I meant to comment on what you said about the pop up roof. I kept wondering why nobody ever thought to do that? All these tiny houses would KILL me not being able to stand up in the loft space, and very often the weather would be obliging enough to pop up the top like you would any camper and have a normal bedroom. When traveling just snap it down shut again!

  • Judy May 2, 2015, 10:48 am

    I really like this plan. I would only change the blueprint by putting the sink at the cabinet by the bathroom and the stove top on the island cabinet. I like the idea of all the plumbing being centered. And only flat surfaces to clean near my splatter prone cooking.

  • SteveDenver May 2, 2015, 3:50 pm

    Wondering what prompted the design decision to bump IN the wall opposite the bathroom entrance. Now that area is simply hall that has no function other than passage. If that wall was straight or bumped out to reflect the bathroom bump, it would be great placement for the kitchen or an office, or a wall of drawers and cabinets.

    • AdemB June 12, 2015, 4:53 pm

      I guess its just more of an architectural design. Breaking up a straight line of wall to add interest. Seems a bit weird in this situation though, could of certainly been achieved internally by adding some nice cabinetry. Therefore not losing the floorspace.

  • gale May 2, 2015, 11:38 pm

    This may be expensive but it is a real gem. Love the interior and the space. Is that a full closet to the left of the bed? Looks like all you would need and very classy.

  • Lisa May 3, 2015, 2:45 am

    Nice looking, but with shipping and set up costs and just the base cost, it would be around 105K – not exactly what you would expect from a tiny house. I guess the name luxury cabins apply. You could build a regular house for that.

  • Suz September 4, 2015, 12:44 am

    Yes overprice for a ready-built but if we could build it ourselves w/o a trailer it would fall into a better budget, don’t you agree?
    I like the size & contemporary look; but I’d rearrange to have the kitchen on the end with windows looking out above the counter top, and move the glass doors & porch over to where the fireplace is.
    Maybe add on a second bedroom above? Plus a rooftop deck? Oh, and a dang hot tub for my hunny.

  • Peter Piper May 3, 2016, 2:16 pm

    The Wedge is the BEST I’ve seen so far. LOTS of living room space, which is what I look for because most of the time I’m going to want to get comfortable without going to bed to do it. The kitchen is adequate and the bathroom is perfect. Would love to have the Wedge.

  • Mary McReynolds July 26, 2016, 1:43 pm

    Great volume in a small space. Love this!

  • Amalie Lopez July 26, 2016, 3:04 pm

    Lovely tiny house and I think 400 sq. ft. is the perfect size for us. And I’ve got the furniture with storage for it at Tight Space Furniture dot com – if you like it share us on FB and check out our blog. Thanks, Amy

  • Rob the Potter July 26, 2016, 3:30 pm

    Very nice design and detailing…one of my favorites so far…really like the ceiling…really like the large windows…much more style than some of these that resemble giant lunch pails…

  • Sarah July 26, 2016, 4:25 pm

    I just love this!! To me it looks like a good marriage between rustic (which is my taste) and maybe a little more contemporary. I think it’s terrific.

  • Maria July 27, 2016, 8:35 am

    The pictures of this house are not the same as the floor plan they show. I like the floor plan they show better.

  • Carrie Chisholm July 27, 2016, 11:36 am

    Stunning!!!!!

  • Phil July 28, 2016, 1:17 pm

    Looks like the roof isn’t insulated. How well does that work? Or is it hidden somehow?
