Highlights

Quotes

The 8×18′ Whirly House was built by Tiny House Crafters for kindie rocker, KB Whirly, to take on tour as he delights children and parents alike at campgrounds and music festivals around the country.

Together, we created this one-of-a-kind, part-time dwelling complete with a drop-down stage for performing arts, clever storage solutions, gray and fresh water storage – all the while staying true to KB’s eclectic and unique style.1

We will be at the Tiny House Fest Vermont in Brattleboro, Vermont, and the 3rd Annual BIG Tiny House Festival in Stoughton, Massachusetts, this year!3

      There is an Incredible Tiny Homes Jamboree, in Newport, TN October 27th through the 29th, 2017.
      They will build a house, using only solar, and will give it away. You have to sign up for the give away, and be present that Sunday. $20 entry fee.

    I have been always a fan of drop down outdoor living areas because it avoids steps going in and out and the lack of a cramped sleeping loft which leed to a moderate overall height and better proportions.
    However the floor plan isn’t my thing.
    Don’t like wet bath and multi functional bed/couch.
    Relocating the bath to the end where the entrance is would allow a decent size of bathroom with shower stall, sink and loo and benefits an u-shaped kitchen. I would raise the floor above wheel wells for storage and put a lift up to ceiling bed with living and dining area under.
    And voila a 8 by 18 ft THOW for travelling would be created.

    My number one huge no-no is having bathroom open right into kitchen!
    I do like the under-floor bed. And deck.
    But layout would have to change to move bathroom to opposite end of house.
    Sorry.

    You people that don’t like this and don’t like that… consider that this tiny house was “custom built” specifically the way the customer wanted it… so it evidently suits his needs just fine. As long as it pleases him… that is all that matters.

    Reading Michael’s comment reminded me that though I don’t like the idea of a bathroom directly off the kitchen, that was exactly what we had when we built a granny flat for my late mother. With a good extractor fan it wasn’t a problem. It was also a wet room, as she needed help with showering. The flooring sloped slightly towards the drain and had non-slip flooring and worked really well.
    I love the pocket door. I wish we had put one of those in for mum, as in her shower room/wet room the door opened rather close to the toilet!
    I am a big fan of sofa beds – I am sitting on a Z fold sofa that will be my bed tonight and most nights (needy dog and supersonic snoring hubby mean it’s my bed of choice!). Our son sleeps happily on a Clic Clac sofa bed that has storage underneath when we are in our little house in France. The sofa seats 3-4 adults comfortably.
    This Tiny is obviously perfect for its owner and has got us all thinking abut tweaks that would make it perfect for us!
    Sadly I don’t think I could tow a THOW….roads here in England are often very narrow and winding and I breath is when I drive my Seat Ibiza around the local countryside roads, which here in Yorkshire often have dry stone walls on each side!! However, I am considering a small caravan or cabin at some point in the future for additional accommodation for family when we are in France.
