322 Sq. Ft. Double Dormer Loft Tiny Home

This 322 sq. ft. Double Dormer Loft Tiny Home on Wheels is built by Tiny Mountain Homes. It has two separate entrances and is completely certified as an RV so it’s easy to buy with financing (and easy to find a parking spot for).

It features many unique features like a downstairs den/bedroom, multi-functional areas, nice kitchen, double lofts with dormers, and more.

The kitchen features a gas range and an apartment-sized refrigerator that’s compact but very usable. The countertops are granite and there’s even a tile backsplash to make things look and feel even nicer. There’s even a spacious California King size upstairs sleeping loft with dormers.

Tiny House Kitchen and Hallway

This tiny house on wheels is unique because of it’s interior design choices, isn’t it?

Castle Peak Tiny House

It has a luxurious look and feel to it… Even with the dark wood flooring choice.

Flush Toilet in a Tiny House

They went with a standard flush toilet in the bathroom. And in the kitchen, I said earlier, granite countertops and a tile backsplash. Nice, right?

    Would be interested in outside dimensions…. concerned about it’s compliance with standard tow vs. oversize load.

    • Dinah May 27, 2015, 2:28 pm

      Check with the your State Department of Transportation. 8.5′ is the standard tow width here.

    • Tiny Mountain House May 27, 2015, 2:54 pm

      Hey Marsha. This home is 24′ long 8′ 6″ wide and 13′ 5″ tall. To tow this home we used a 1 ton pickup truck to tow it down from Oregon.

    • Nick May 27, 2015, 4:15 pm

      The exterior dimensions on this home are 24′ long 8’6″ wide and 13’5″ tall.

    Not sure what RV code they are using, but I see many violations of national RV code…and even more for California and other specific states. What type of RV is this supposed to be and what code is it built to? Is there a third party inspection of this “RV”????

    • Tiny Mountain Houses May 27, 2015, 3:01 pm

      Hey Andy,

      We build all our homes to the RVIA code. Once we complete a home an inspector comes in and certifies each home individually. All our homes come with unique Vin numbers which makes them easy to insure and register just like a normal RV. We have towed all our homes all over the west coast with no problems.

        Could You Live in this Designer Inspired Tiny House on Wheels?
        Sep 28, 2012 … One of our wonderful readers, Sandra, sent me her recently completed designer inspired tiny house on wheels. She is not planning on living in …

      • Sandra May 27, 2015, 6:34 pm

        Not sure if this would open for you (above post) but I like the idea of one only raised roof. You could certainly add privacy wall for at least one bedroom loft. Having one stair to two lofts saves a lot of space. My unit is the same as yours width and height wise but only 16 ft. Mine is done cabin/cottage style. After two full years of using it (as a vacation beach home) there are things I’d change. But for the most part I love it.

      • Andy May 29, 2015, 8:15 am

        To what RVIA code? RVIA is simply a trade organization and NOT a governing body by any means. There are ANSI codes which govern RV construction. Do you build to any one of these ANSI codes? If so, which one as I see numerous violations.

        • Tanya July 21, 2015, 2:27 am

          Instead of complaining of the numerous codes they have supposedly violated, maybe TELL us some of what you have observed? From what I understand RVIA is an organization standardizing RV codes and is very difficult to obtain qualification for membership in.

      • Andy February 25, 2016, 12:48 pm

        Exactly what code is that you are referencing as their is no “RVIA” code. RVIA is a trade organization and in the few pictures I see there are violations, perhaps the pictures were taken before it was complete, but let me know what code you are building under. thank you!

        • Nick February 25, 2016, 4:43 pm

          Hey Andy,

          All our homes are built and certified to the NFPA 1192 trailer code. I’m not sure what violations you see but this home like all our homes passed the inspection with flying colors :). Let us know if you have anymore questions.

          Thanks,
          -Nick

  • JC May 27, 2015, 11:13 am

    This is really nice — like how it could almost be a 3BR! The two dormered lofts are really great. I guess the only things I would tweak in the design would be stairs instead of ladders and more comfortable living area seating, but all those things can be altered. Curious about the price tag, though — must be high?

  • Sandra May 27, 2015, 11:23 am

    I like the interior but am really not fond of the exterior. Roof line is really awkward. And windows are not big enough. The view of the toilet is a bit disconcerting too. It is really in the wrong place. The sink should be there. After three years of owning a tiny home I can attest to the fact that at least one loft (where adults sleep) should have a stair system. Kids of course are good with ladders. My unit is way too small to alter, but this is quite big and could have had stairs built in to the biggest loft. Over all though, very nice finishes.

    • Tiny Mountain Houses May 27, 2015, 2:58 pm

      Hey Sandra,
      Thanks for the feedback. We made the roof line in that style in order to add a division between both of the lofts. Also we custom build every home to order so changing the location of the sink and toilet could be easily done.

    • Sondra July 16, 2015, 4:54 pm

      I assumed the windows were small too, until I saw the front of the house, in this view: http://tinyhousetalk.com/322-sq-ft-castle-peak-tiny-house/

      Absolutely love the windows and the roof line, they’re trying to give each side some privacy, which is cool. I agree with you on the stairs, ladders don’t work for me too well =)

  • Pamela Jones May 27, 2015, 11:58 am

    I would totally live in it!!!!

  • SteveDenver May 27, 2015, 12:35 pm

    Looking at the exterior, why not simply raise the entire roof?
    Materials like stone counters and tile seem counter-intuitive to housing on wheels, as they add a lot of weight.

    • Sandra May 27, 2015, 12:42 pm

      Yes. There are ways to make the roof line more appealing. Given the long length of this unit both sleeping areas could have been on one end with a stair way leading to both. And the bathroom behind that. Just my thought. Mine has a raised roof on one end and it’s quite nice.

    • Marcy May 27, 2015, 10:11 pm

      Steve, I agree with you. Every time I see a tiny house with double dormers with the low middle, I wonder why they don’t just make the whole roof at that height. It might improve the roofline, which I find unattractive.

  • alice h May 27, 2015, 3:34 pm

    Yikes! A bit too fortress like for me on the exterior and too modern apartment/show home on the inside. The layout is too much like the usual over-dominant kitchen with a hallway and lounge area that’s almost an afterthought. Interesting den/bedroom area. But it would definitely suit a lot of people.

  • Lisa E. May 27, 2015, 3:45 pm

    He says that “they have stopped certifying RV builders to code, so we are actually the last one.” What state is this and who is he talking about? Is this a national ban or just some state ban?

    I like this build on the inside and the options for staircases or one staircase with a catwalk. This has a very homey feel to it and I love all of the new appliances. However, I’m a bit concerned about the granite counter tops because natural stone doesn’t really travel well. But if you are just going to park it on your own land, then no problem; otherwise, I’d opt for a composite or wood counter top. The outside could probably use a little curb appeal work. But I’d rather have all the money go to the inside (like bamboo flooring) if I had to choose. Very nice layout and looks.

  • Varenikje May 27, 2015, 3:59 pm

    Anybody know what model this is? Mount Everest, Castle Peak, Bianca Peak, Grand Teton, Half Dome, Mt. Hood, Mt. Bachelor, Pyramid Peak, Mt. Tabor, Mt. Olympus, Mt. Kilimanjaro are the choices. Lotsa choices! It does look huge for 322 sf. Really?

  • Bruce May 27, 2015, 5:09 pm

    I would so take advantage of that roof line. Give me a hatch/skylight…
    Make a deck in between the dormers just above the center of the roof, it would still be lower than the dormers for towing peace of mind… couple of chairs, potted palm or an umbrella… and an ice cold beverage… 🙂

    • Marcy May 27, 2015, 10:03 pm

      Bruce, you are brilliant! A deck between the dormers would add an outside space that a could be easily reached from either dormer while also providing an emergency egress (which I worry that very few tiny home lofts have). Imagine in the morning, still in your p.j.s, out on your deck with a cup of coffee, watching the the morning come. Ahhh.

  • amanda May 27, 2015, 9:56 pm

    It’s to dark with all the dark counter tops and cabinets

  • Rue May 28, 2015, 5:05 am

    The more THOWs I see, the more I think loft railings need to be code or something. Especially in a kid’s loft (and WHY does autocorrect keep thinking I mean lift? LOL)

    I agree that the kitchen is over-done, and the lounging space – i.e. the “kick back on the couch and relax after a long day” space – is barely an afterthought, as in too many tiny homes. It’s as if they expect the inhabitants to spend all their time standing at the kitchen counter or sleeping. O:

    • Sandra May 28, 2015, 11:49 am

      I agree about the comfort aspect. Too many have no place to “live”. Just uncomfortable hard surfaces. If you’re not comfortable you’ll soon give up on the unit. Also I’m wondering (after a second look) why the upper windows in the sleeping loft are so large and the lower window are so small? Makes little sense.

    • Andy June 2, 2015, 4:39 pm

      You are absolutely correct regarding loft rails and codes with a TRUE RV, but as you see when I questioned (above) the RV code it was built to they could only claim it was a Trade Organization (RVIA) which is akin to telling me that is was the local Chamber of Commerce. While both are fine trade organizations I am sure, they are not nationally recognized safety codes and this is DEFINTELY not built to any RV code I am familiar with so I ask again which ANSI (or other…) code is it in compliance with?

  • Keith Proctor May 29, 2015, 8:49 pm

    Wow !!! Would I love to have that tiny home…if I was rich…no problem…oh well. I live in a trailer park with my old 5th wheel that has a saggy kitchen floor…what an upgrade that would be. Still, fun to look at and dream. These homes are perfect for one person or my Girlfriend, puppy dog and me. I purposely chose this Tiny House way of living…and I LOVE IT. So much better without all the clutter, simplified life with much less stress.

    • DR Hall May 30, 2015, 3:37 pm

      Keith Proctor The sagging floor can be fixed, perhaps with a “floating” floor. You can slowly make updates & DIY. Glad you enjoy living tiny.

  • April June 5, 2015, 1:14 pm

    Don’t care for it. It’s all glitz and no real thought for real tiny living. There’s barely any storage space in the kitchen, yet an entire open wall without a shelf or cabinet. Where would a microwave go? Could a washer/dryer go in?
    The living area is tragic. That’s an area that matters a lot, but all the design went into the kitchen. The kitchen is nice…very nice. But people aren’t hanging out there. Or even eating there.

  • Robynne June 6, 2015, 11:53 pm

    I am curious where they found a gas stove that size. I was able to locate one but it had an electric oven. Do you have that information available? TIA

    • Sandra June 7, 2015, 11:29 am

      You can buy a built in one at any RV repair place or you can buy 24 inch floor units at places like Sears. I bout a simple 24 inch all gas one from Sears. It’s not stainless tho. But I’m sure they have (they are called apartment size) them at any appliance store. Even if you have to special order.

  • Benoit Desmarteaux June 12, 2015, 12:14 am

    Hi,
    I would like to know how much it would cost me to buy either the tiny-house of 322 Sq. Ft. Double Dormer Loft Tiny Home, atrist’s Shipping Container Home and Studio or the Underground Survival Shelteré Thank you because I really think that will be one of those rhree tiny-houses. Thank you.

    • Sandra June 12, 2015, 10:25 am

      It’s like buying a car. A basic car could cost $15k a fully loaded car $60k. People make them from recycled material and can do them for $5k. They aren’t alway the prettiest (some are tho) but functional. Some are from high end materials. As to which is best you have to take into account what you want from it. If it’s mobility, then by all means, a home on wheels is the best option. If it’s permanent then your options change. Your best bet is to have an idea of your needs and budget. Then go from there.

  • Lisa June 15, 2015, 10:23 pm

    I really like this! Is there a version of this with “slide out” sides{like you see in RV’s}?

  • Priscilla June 17, 2015, 1:47 am

    very nice it has a very luxurious look and feel, That is what I will be going for with my small house. Thanks for sharing

  • kirche July 2, 2015, 5:11 pm

    totally dig it.

  • Judy Waddle July 16, 2015, 5:42 pm

    In the middle of buying a 399SF RV right now!! Looking forward to minimalized living but with all the amenities!!

  • Lynda Mckinney July 16, 2015, 7:21 pm

    I would love to have a tiny house.. I live in a mobile home in Northern California. I want to move back to Oregon as soon as I can.

  • Candide33 July 16, 2015, 9:27 pm

    Is there a reason that I have never seen a THOW that is longer than 24′ long?

    Camping trailers come as long as 46′ long I think, now that would be a bear to haul and a bit bizarre but there is a lot of room between 24′ and 46′

    Is it just because of the weight? Or maybe the height makes it maneuverable? Or is 24′ just the standard?

    • David July 17, 2015, 5:02 am

      I believe if it was 46′ it would be orders of magnitude harder to navigate bends and corners.

    • Erika February 25, 2016, 5:00 pm

      @Candide33 I would suspect that it has more to do with trailer manufacturers having standard sizes and 24′ is very common and affordable. There is a really great trailer on here by Escape that is 30′
      http://tinyhousetalk.com/30-escape-traveler-xl-tiny-home-on-wheels/
      This is the one I want and it really isn’t that expensive when you consider the finishes and the flow. “MSRP for base XL is $72,800.”

  • JT July 26, 2015, 4:36 pm

    I like the idea of having two sleeping lofts. The kitchen is nice. I would like more photos to see how much storage it had.

  • Shelly Hostetler February 25, 2016, 2:24 pm

    I would have liked to see more interior photos on this! They would’ve been helpful to get more of sense of the layout & space, especially in the dormers. Ah well…
