    This home is about 15 miles from me. I should go look at it even though I’m not wanting to buy. There are some interesting touches throughout. One thing I would have done different as a woman is not put a giant mirror over my kitchen sink. Does one really want to look at themselves every time they do dishes? Nope. I would rather see the the birds and trees. There would be a window instead and then solid wall on either side of the sink where the windows are for open shelving with possibly windows above that for more light.

    For anyone that wants A LOT MORE INFORMATION, click on the link for tinyhouseasheville and Larry (the builder) has a massive amount of background and specs on this build.

    This is his last paragraph: “The general descriptions included here don’t cover every technical design or construction issue. My point is, while anyone can leap out into Tiny house building, questions will come up. Discussions can be complicated. This prototype addresses some practical unexpected points and skips others. It is not an off-grid design, but it does attempt to make efficient use of space and low energy consumption for a comfortable Tiny home. This is one solution from many possible options. I have tried to describe a few of the design aspects so that whether you purchase a Tiny house from a builder like myself, or decide to build your own, you can have some points to think over. I say congratulations to you for sticking with these descriptions and best wishes in your adventures! Contact me if you have comments or questions. Thanks!
    Price complete is $35K.”

    I read through everything and I can’t quite figure out the “Why?” of this build: experiment? he wants to get into the tiny business?

    • Larry Vickers June 30, 2015, 12:27 pm

      Thanks to everyone for their interest in my tiny house build. I think it is the most energy efficient tiny house in the region with SIPs panel construction. Of course every person has design ideas and what I did is just one possible solution. As to windows and wall mirror layouts, the concept is to create visual space and eliminate the narrowness of the structure. Don’t recall explaining that in the text, but this is very effective. Also, from this stage forward it would be simple to change interior colors, decor, etc. You can also visit my facebook page at Tiny House Asheville for more information.

  • Trish June 30, 2015, 11:23 am

    The photos of this tiny house gives me the feeling of a camper and not a home I would live in full time. I also think it’s a bit choppy in the layout. Sorry, but that’s my opinion.

  • Bruce June 30, 2015, 11:27 am

    Lots of nice creative/quirky ideas in here…

    Paula,
    You raise good points which maybe the photographs don’t illustrate. If you would like to visit any time, let me know and I’ll gladly give you a tour.

  • Pat Long June 30, 2015, 12:30 pm

    Beautiful craftmanship with your wood. It looks a little choppy to me too but perhaps a couple with an older chil would use it tht way. Good example of variety in layout

  • Lynnette June 30, 2015, 3:08 pm

    I wish I could see a layout picture to see where everything is placed. I love the storage in the loft for clothing as it’s painful to see sleeping quarters with zero storage for clothes and other items or space for optional knick knacks. Very nice use of space and thank you for the actual photos and not bubble eye photos lol

    • Larry Vickers June 30, 2015, 6:16 pm

      Lynette,
      The point here is to have visually separaate spaces even in a small 8×20 footprint so folks can gain a little privacy. I believe it is important for personal comfort to have two or more of thse, and this tiny has three plus a bathroom. Check out the website and the FB page for more, and thanks for your interest in Tiny houses. I think I can put up a floor plan on the FB page and will do so for your info.

    • Lynnette July 1, 2015, 12:37 am

      Ty Larry, yes I’d love to see it!

  • Kim G June 30, 2015, 6:39 pm

    Super cute, loved the way you changed up the “usual” tiny house layout of having the kitchen and lounge areas bleeding into one another. I also just loved your cute stairs. The trailer doesn’t look very heavy. I’ve been considering having a THOW for my kids to take away to college. Does anyone know anything about or have any experience in renting space long term in RV parks in college towns?

    • Larry Vickers July 1, 2015, 7:04 am

      Kim, Thanks for your interest. There are tiny house communities springing up all around the country. Probably the future will see more, and while you could find a place in most college towns, it might need to be unconventional at first unless you can happen on something by luck.

  • Denise June 30, 2015, 7:53 pm

    Although I understand the intent behind this tiny house design and can appreciate the different approach toward layout, I think the comments about it’s choppiness speak to the lack of a “designer’s eye”, if that term makes any sense. In any small space, no matter how eclectic the person chooses to make it, there still needs to be some continuity and flow that ties it all together. In this one, I get the sense of functionality and budget-mindedness, but the fixtures don’t seem to fit together to create as much of an overall visually appealing space – which probably explains the comment about it feeling more like a travel trailer.

    I think if this builder were to collaborate with another person who has an eye toward design when choosing fixtures and finishes, the outcome of his next tiny house may very well hit the mark. Hopefully this feedback will be construed as constructive, rather than negative, because I’m not one who ever wants to denigrate another’s work. I find that rude, and think the opportunity to comment should focus on what can be improved while also complimenting innovative ideas. The loft bedroom with the closet in it rocks!

    All of that said, if this tiny house is well-built then the price is quite affordable and amazing for all that it includes, and I hope the right buyer finds it and will be very happy in it!

    • Larry Vickers July 1, 2015, 6:58 am

      Denise,
      Thank you for your thoughtful comments. Seems to me design is often such an open question. I had a residential design studio from 1984-99 and a GC license from about 95 on, and I’ve seen some unique ideas in that time, and have built some. But I never had formal architecture training and your points appear sound. If you have not had design training you seem to have a natural inclination. I used residential construction techniques to create a strong, energy efficient tiny house, my first. If you would like to see this project or discuss ideas, I’ll buy you lunch. Is Mexican ok?

  • Dean June 30, 2015, 7:54 pm

    Very nice!
    My only addition to this is some kind of laundry facility and one of those toaster ovens with the two burners on top, as opposed to the two burner hot plate shown in the above pictures.

  • Rue July 1, 2015, 2:19 pm

    It’s interesting to see a different take on tiny house design. While it might seem “choppy” to some (and compartmentalizing the spaces might seem each seem smaller) I actually like the separation of the different living areas. So many THOWs are just one big room where you’re always looking at the same four walls.

    With that said, the fit and finish could be more cohesive visually; plus some of the odd choices like the huge mirror over the kitchen sink – which looks like it’s a re-purposed bathroom vanity. Not sure if that would be deep enough to really do dishes in.

    All in all though, a solid build with some original ideas!

    • Larry Vickers July 1, 2015, 7:05 pm

      Thanks Rue. I’ve shared small space with my sweetheart and though we were in the early stages of our love, we definitely needed some retreat space where we were out of sight and maybe out of mind from the partner temporarily. As to the mirror, it was custom made for the space to make it visually more spacious, and that works.

  • Bonnie July 3, 2015, 11:24 am

    I really like the house overall, and I do like that’s it is divided up to give the occupants some divided space. I would envision a couple living here. It’s brilliant that there is a bed upstairs as well as down. As part of an older couple myself, I would have to have somewhere where I could read or watch TV (with headphones) night without keeping my husband awake because I am a night owl and he is not. Things I would add: more built-in storage space, like under the banquette table, in the steps, and upstairs–every little bit of place to hide clutter helps! What I would delete: the mirror over the sink–I agree with the previous comment that I would HATE to see my own image every time I sued the sink there. I would also add a lot more cushions or padding tot he banquette table–it looks highly uncomfortable. And what about designing the small dining table so that it could fold into the floor, turning the banquette area into more of a sofa-type seating area when not needed for dining? I’ve seen that done with other tiny house designs, and I think that it would really open up the seating area and make it lots more inviting and comfortable to spend time in.

    • Larry Vickers July 4, 2015, 10:01 pm

      Hey Bonnie,
      You would need to see this house inside before the photos could really convey what is going on, but I appreciate your thoughtful insights. Thanks!

  • Jill July 3, 2015, 7:07 pm

    I have been considering along with my 30 year old adult disabled daughter (she has a high functioning learning disability related to a type of autism) a tiny house for her to live in so that she can live near mom and dad for support but still maintain her independence. Your THOWs is interesting. We are in NC and would maybe love a ride to Asheville to see your build and even talk about a custom build, ie. steps instead of ladder. etc. to better accomadate her. She doesn’t have public work and is on a fixed income so her ability to pay monthly utilities and such would be so fitted to THOW. Please email me if something could be arranged. Thank you, Jill and Kristen G. Raleigh NC.

    • Larry Vickers July 4, 2015, 9:58 pm

      Jill & Kristen,
      Be more than happy to show you this tiny house. A custom build would not be out of the question, but I’m just starting a full-size house for a customer and would need to look at scheduling. We’re within a short distance of Exit #44 on I-40. Let’s get together! Larry

  • John July 5, 2015, 3:17 pm

    I like your different approach on the layout. The stairs are a good design and so is the upstairs loft with storage. To me it seems like the kitchen needs some lower cabinets, smaller windows, and the mirror is out of place. The bench sitting is real nice, works good with the round table. I love the cabinets on each side of the sofa, good use of space. Over all a fresh new design.

  • Donna July 15, 2015, 12:28 am

    Personally I love the mirror over the kitchen sink. By sizing it the same as the windows and placing it between the two windows it mimics them in a way. The only thing I would have done different there is added the open glass shelving across the windows as well. I also like the shutter that allows ventilation between the loft and downstairs along with privacy. While some might see the design as choppy I see it as having defined spaces. Not everybody likes just one open space. When I’m mad at my hubby I don’t want him in line of sight much less in the same room.At least not until I calm down. What can I say, Comanche and Irish make for a volatile temper, lol.

  • Marty Ostafy July 24, 2015, 2:29 pm

    This is exactly what I have been looking for! Place to work at the table, sofa for TV and guest, and private bedroom with some storage.
    But the best thing is the price! I have been watching Tiny Homes for over 2 years and this to me is one of the all around best.

  • Eileen Anderson July 25, 2016, 9:09 pm

    I REALLY love this house ! I live in central PA.I’ve been looking for something like this…what is needed to tow it ??? how much does it weigh ???
