    This pretense that large yachts are ‘tiny houses’ must stop. A house is not a boat. Where one calls home is a different thing. But houses are about a connection with land. The idea that, for example, a 65 ft yacht is a tiny living space that anyone can choose is silly. These are expensive vessels that require a considerable degree of skill to ‘operate’. At the point where someone can choose such a vessel and/or a comfortable house, I’m sure consulting an architect is both more appealing and quite affordable. I am an accomplished sailor myself but find this muddying of the waters unhelpful, disingenuous, and a little patronising to those of us looking at practical alternative housing ideas. However, I otherwise love the varied interpretations and efforts canvased and represented on this website (and others) and applaud your endeavours! Please keep up the great work 🙂

    For three years my parents lived on a Dickerson 41 traveling the ICW between Ocean City, MD & Marathon, FL. My brother crewed. My book’s going to be titled “How My Parents Spent My Inheritance”.

    To Bill Burgess , I took the time to go over the floor plans on your website. You no doubt have spent a great deal of time putting them together. However some aspects are not practical or lacking esthetics.

    Some entrances open directly into a dining area 7′ wide. The door is 2.5′ minimum, leaving around 48″ for a table and 4 chairs. Also visitors first view when entering these homes is the toilet directly in front of the entrance. Where are the closets for coats and boots? One has a closet, but when putting coats away the sight line is into the master closet which has no door. If the master bedroom is closed there would be approximately one foot of space… No one can enter the living room, remaining bunched in the kitchen/dining area until everyone has put away their coats.

    In some bedrooms if the Murphy bed was lowered it would block opening the closet. In another the Murphy bed blocks the room’s window. Furniture is placed in front of windows and possibly blocking heating vents.

    Most of your kitchens are designed for only one person. This day and age many spouses prepare meals together. There is no food storage pantry. There is no counter to put items on when inserting or retrieving food from the refrigerator. In some floor plans emptying the dishwasher requires you to walk across the kitchen where the cupboards are located. Try using a computerized floorplan App like Sketch Up…

    I am surprised you have not incorporated an entry air lock into your plans… Especially since you are following Alaska building standards. Alaska has several weather zones and builder criteria; which zone are you following? Seriously do Alaskins change their clothes in the hallways? Some master closets are not in the bedroom but beside the back door where dressing takes place?
    Perhaps having your plans reviewed by a design or architecture professional would give you insights for spatial and sight lines. You have some good ideas, but an architect could take them from good to great. Sorry, but the “wee” house plan is an above average abode, even considering the laundry in the kitchen and a less than perfect bathroom layout.

    Your plans are at a basic level now, but if you can envision in your mind how each room feels when you are in it or enter it; then change your plans to reduce the negatives and highlight the positives. So if you have put in large windows for the view, then make this a focal point when you enter the room. No visitor wants to enter your home for a dinner invitation to find themselves entering the kitchen, wondering where they should put their coats, being in the midst of the cook’s space and looking straight into the toilet… (Most don’t consistently close the bathroom door when they leave that room).
    Hope you accept these comments as positive feedback, especially since your current plans have great potential.
