This Big Modern Tiny House is Pure Luxury!

The Sakura by Minimaliste Tiny Houses is an inspiring tiny house by a builder who’s really taken the time to design a functional, livable, and spacious home on wheels.

With just a few tweaks to the standard tiny house dimensions — this one is 10 feet wide with a gooseneck trailer — the loft bedroom is replaced with a bedroom with standing room, and there’s a very spacious living area that doesn’t feel narrow or boxed in.

We love all the storage that’s incorporated into every room in the tiny house.  Even under the bed and behind the couch seats.

The best part of this tiny house might be the cozy bathroom with a full sized bathtub, or the rooftop deck.  Which would you rather have in your tiny?

    Well done. Other than a need for more kitchen space I could see myself living in this Tiny House. It’s really well laid out and has adequate storage. I started losing faith that I could retire in a Tiny Home but this one is doable.

    I love this tiny house. It really does have a lot of storage and is well designed. It would be easy to put in a shower instead of a tub (I prefer a shower and an instant hot water heater. It’s sleek and modern.

    This might be as close as it gets to my dream big TH. Yes I would make a few changes but I believe they would be fairly small overall. Am totally in love.

    Wide as it is a DOT wide load permit with a front and rear vehicle with flashing warning lights would probably need to be obtained for each state traveled through however it sure offers a nice living area, so might be worth the hassles of
    obtaining all those permits if permanent parking and not doing regular travel, well done.

    Legal highway use without a permit is 102″ outside tire to outside tire, 13’6″ on height .I might add these considerations must be thought out well by individual builders most professional tinyhouse builders are aware of these regulations. So for you DIY people get the facts so to head off any problems ahead of time. I have built compact tinyhouses for fourteen yrs years before their popularity. Just tickles me they are and have taken off the way they have I mean this in a good way . My only concern is as big as they are these days and this is a real factor their weight. Not just any truck can pull these big boys. Tinyhouses are here to stay but I caution if your wanting to tow around yourself regularly know your tow vehicle and consider your home’s weight . A big difference if towing hilly country or the flat lands. Consider an aluminum trailer and aluminum framing ,I began building in wood early on and learned of the weight factor so we now base all our builds here at Woolywagons on aluminum trailers and aluminum welded framing married with spray foam insulation to create a monolithic tinyhouse and never looked back. Good luck and Best regards too all. I’m Steve and open by a phone call for any questions pertaining to Tinyhouses rather your a professional or DIY builder rather we build for you or another good quality professional tinyhouse company builder . We are all in this together. Yes every company feels they have the best to offer and mostly their quality shows. I’m nearing my retirement time and for reasons of health and in hopes my designs which are blueprinted and protected will be carried on . My company is for sale ,we specialize in compact lightweight tinyhouses, but I will be staying with for a transition time with a new owner and remain contributing to the tinyhouse movement by consulting. I also am glad to answer any questions you may have. Thank you and Thanks for reading and a special thanks to our Veterans God bless America. Steve

      Thanks Steve, good advice, and I believe everyone would agree that comments from builders are always welcome and appreciated…

      Btw, this builder is up in Québec Canada… Road legal limits are slightly different than what we deal with in the states but overall similar with similar permitting process… Though, if you’re both oversized AND overweight then you will be required to have two separate permits under Canadian rules.

    Even though this is too modern for my taste, I really like the overall design. If it has to be hooked up, then I would put in a regular flush toilet and an on demand water heater. Other than that, it’s pretty close to perfect for me.

    Superbe! Et tellement bien conçue. Je choisirais un divan un peu plus petit et ajouterais un comptoir qui se rabat au bout de celui existant. J’opterais pour une laveuse et une sécheuse mini mais séparées. De plus, j’aimerais cette petite maison sur une fondation en béton, et j’ajouterais du rangement dans le plancher. Superbe maison. Excellent travail!
