    Not a tiny house! Big house! And not a lot of storage in the Kitchen, unless you use the stair steps for storage. Open shelving is a cheap way to get out of using cabinets. I prefer cabinets..to store my Stuff!

    All that, only to find Barbie’s little oven in the kitchen? C’mon. With a wider-than-usual tiny I expect a real range and wall-mounted oven, not a two-burner with a microwave.

      As always is the case with custom builds, it’s owner’s choice… Some people just have no use for a oven or a big cooking area… There’s even people who don’t need to cook their food or prefer alternative methods of preparing food…

      Though, it’s not just a microwave but also a convection oven and doubles as the range hood vent too…

        Yes! I know a woman who moved into a small traditional house, and had the oven removed! She said she never uses an oven and didn’t want to look at it. It’s nice to be able to customize one’s space. I think that’s one of the appeals of tiny houses: with a small, custom build, you can ask for exactly what you want. (But it might make resale a bit harder.)

    Honestly, waste of space on that bathroom. Weird I don’t like it. Sorry to disagree with the others but its just weird. Could have utilized the shower/tub together with a walk in tub for seniors and not wasted all that space. The entire layout of the bathroom is odd. Not a fan.

    It seems odd to have a big tub and separate shower, but a cramped bathroom sink. Was this built to order? Seems like there’s not much closet space for a house this size. Well, everybody has different priorities.

    • Avatar James D.
      January 24, 2019, 4:48 am

      Yes, California Tiny House is a custom builder that makes everything built to order.

      While a separate tub and shower may seem strange but according to a study done by the National Association of Home Builders 85% of Americans in the market for a home consider a separate shower enclosure an essential or highly desirable feature in the bathroom.

      This is because it provides more options, sizes, and design flexibility with separate fixtures.

      While everyone can have their own preferences for the bathroom, as a society there has been a steady trend over the last few decades as we have transitioned from most people bathing to now most people showering and consequently the bathtub has become a secondary consideration that can either be eliminated or separated to avoid compromising the use of the shower.

      It’s just mainly unusual for a tiny house with the usual emphasis on space saving but I have seen others with separate showers and tubs (usually in separate parts of the house)…

      As for the clothing storage, mind 4 things…

      1) No one has moved into it yet, so it’s still missing pieces of furniture that may be part of the storage planned.

      2) There’s only one sleeping loft, so it’s apparently only for one or two people to live in…

      3) It is wider than your average tiny house but it’s still only 260 Sq Ft and the bigger tiny houses can go over 400 Sq Ft…

      4) This is in California, where Tiny Houses are mainly regulated to being ADU’s if not limited to RV Parks… So it may only be intended as a Guest house… and there isn’t as much seasonal changes to deal with as in other parts of the country.

        Yes, as a guest cottage it makes sense–a bed, a nice bathroom, and enough kitchen to make a snack. But I have to agree with commenter D. Pedersen–I don’t like the dark brown wood, and filling a tub like that in drought-stricken California is frowned upon. And I still think the bathroom sink is cramped–a left handed person would bump their elbow against the wall. But, again, I recognize that other people have different needs and different taste than I do, so I don’t mean to slam this design. It’s just not for me.

          January 25, 2019, 1:26 am

          No design works for everyone, so that’s fine.

          But one thing to consider is people get things like a home for the long term.

          So it may be a drought now but that won’t always be the case and they can simply not use the tub for now or use it rarely.

          Besides, it’s not actually high on the list of things that should probably be cut the most… A swimming pool with a concrete deck uses less water than an equivalent size lawn, for example…

          On the scale of household water usage, the single highest use of water is actually the flush toilet, which can account for up to 31% of the total annual water usage of any given home.

          Washing machines comes in second…

          While showers and baths are third in line for highest usage in the home…

          Showers do typically use less water than taking a bath but not always and you can do things with a bath that you can’t with a shower that can be better for your health…

          But most of California’s water usage is actually outside of the homes. Besides the aforementioned lawns, over 80% of California’s water is used for agriculture.

          Among other reasons why it’s a complicated issue with California…

          January 28, 2019, 10:48 pm

          Alison… yes, California has water issues… as I believe do a number of other states. But plenty of talk, not enough do from the Government there. Even on the other side of the planet we read the news about Filthy Rich home owners who flagrantly water their lawns in defiance of restrictions. The financial cost to them is peanuts. The cost to people who are average Joes (& Joe-esses I suppose) is that water restrictions can be an absolute burden on them. But then again there are people who literally do need to have a bath rather than a shower for medical/health reasons. No easy answer for that though is there?

        With the trend toward most people showering I think separating the tub & shower makes sense. I still live in a traditionally large house and I’ve found that I have to clean my children’s tub every week because it is a tub/shower combo. That means getting on my knees & scrubbing. But in my master bath with a separate tub and walk-in shower I only have to clean the tub occasionally because it is only used occasionally although I do have to give it a quick rinse to wash off the accumulated dust before using – a hand held sprayer does the trick easily. I clean a portion of my shower every time I shower while my conditioner does its thing on my hair so it’s easy to keep clean all the time.

    In some ways I like this house. But in other ways I get irritated. I would have put in a proper stove instead of this minimalist thingy. One could set up a small folding dining table opposite of the kitchen instead of the table counter at the end. This should give space for a stove.

    I do not get the bathtub thingy either. Why would one waste space on a tub instead of using space for more storrage, is beyond me. And using a lot of water, for a soaking bath, seems wasteful when choosing to live in a tiny house. I mean a lot of people do not just live in a tiny house because of affordability, but rather because of wanting to have as small a footprint, on the World, as possible. So an environmental concern.

    And lastly I do not get, why all this dark wood has been used. Lit up by flashlights, it looks OK. But on a daily basis, it would seem too dark and look like the ceiling was coming down. So I do not get this fascination with dark wood in tiny houses.

      I’d like you to define a “proper” stove. Really? Come on, its not YOUR home, its someone elses home. You don’t have to live with it, they do. If you want this home built for you then you can have your PROPER stove.
      Some people “waste” space with a tub because they actually need a tub for health reasons.
      I too do not like the dark wood. Actually “I” detest it. Again, if I was having it built I wouldn’t use dark wood. Guess what? Problem solved.

    Not for me this one. And just wondering about those stairs. What are the risers, roughly 8 or 9 inches? Then that small “landing” with a higher rise small step and then a really high step to gain access to the loft sleeping area. It’s got to be a kneeling experience surely. One foot on the mini step to act as a hop up to get on your knees for the loft floor area. Descending not particularly “stair like”or easy either. That’s quite a step down to that mini step. Reckon it’d be a reverse knee crawl and lower your right leg to the mini step or on your bum and extend your left leg down to the mini step. Either way I think it awkward and odd. Suppose there must be reason? Personally I’d have raised the height of all the risers to eradicate that difficult last “step”. This would of course mean losing that little standing height landing but so what. I know its a custom build and we all have different ideas but I think it’s all a bit odd. Big bath/shower room, relatively basic kitchen and rather small living area. Built for someone who enjoys bathing I guess!

      Yes, as I mentioned in another post, according to a study done by the National Association of Home Builders 85% of Americans in the market for a home consider a separate shower enclosure an essential or highly desirable feature in the bathroom.

      So that’s what trendy these days…

      While lofts usually don’t have enough headroom to stand. So it’s actually more optimal to design the stairs to give a standing transition point to get in and out of them because that’s easier than trying to transition to and from a standing position while trying to walk up and down the stairs at the same time and hopefully not slip or lose your balance in the process.

      Mind, stairs leading up to the loft mean you’re walking into the ceiling and you have to contort yourself fairly significantly to make that transition, which also means you are leaning forward or back at the same time as well and not putting your weight directly down on each step but at an angle… and some people may have to use their knees as they get in and out of the loft until they have enough room to fully extend their legs…

      So think of the standing platform more like how you would be getting in and out of a regular bed that may be a little high… You can even just sit on the edge of the loft and just slide yourself in and out of the loft when you have a standing platform… and you have more to grab onto and lean against as well… Not to mention makes it easier and safer to carry things to and from the loft…

        Many tiny homes now have bump outs. So why not have bump ups? That way you could stand UP in the loft, heck, even have a bed mattress that is more than 3 inches above the floor.

        Moving the tiny house? Just lower the bump up and your ready to go. Leaks? Exceedingly unlikely as bumping up would come to a stop device which would be all around the perimeter of the lowered roof line. And if it had a rubber or other synthetic lining it would remove stray air leaks to boot.

          Those options exists… A few builders do it regularly and most can be asked to do it but there are just reasons why it’s not normally done…

          Since, there are down sides like costs, as it adds a very high premium to the space gained, maintenance, as anything mechanical will eventually break down, and it can result in a trade off of space as the upper walls needs room to slide down and over the lower walls and that can be especially restrictive if still working within road legal size limits. Plus, in the lowered position, you have less space than you otherwise would have in a standard design. Since, between the overlapping walls and the mechanism for the lift system you more than double the wall thickness… and all of that also adds to the total weight of the home and can make it harder to tow.

          Though, you could have the slide be on the inner side to limit the space loss on the main level but that still limits what you can have below, as you can’t have anything in the way of the moving wall sections and it takes away how big the second level can be, along with being harder to weather proof with the then exposed gap to rain, etc.

          Vertical slides would otherwise usually have the advantage of being easier to weather proof when on the outer side as the upper section can act like an umbrella and it’s harder to have heat loss/gain or have air or water penetrate through that… So they are better than slide outs in that way…

          Alternatively, there’s fold outs that is another way to expand the home but it can still add to the cost and is harder to weather proof consistently, and can still add to the maintenance for the home. Along with limiting what you could keep in the second level but some have done this, usually a manual system where it takes a few people to put it up and take it down… Though, there is a UK company by the name of 10 Fold Engineering that license out their folding technology to other builders and you can check their youtube page for videos, mostly computer generated as they only recently had companies start using their technology, demonstrating how their system can be applied to various structures, including homes.

          While, yet another alternative is stack-able homes, which can be an option if you don’t need to readily be able to move and are more or less permanently placed. Or you can have a system where the roof is raised and you install wall modules to fill in the resulting gaps, which just limits you to doing it on good weather days and needing a place to store the modules while moving…

    I have been searching for ages for a tiny home that fits what I would want, and this is pretty much it! The only thing I would change is to move the shower head so it is over the bathtub and use that extra space as a closet. I shower pretty obsessively and love to treat myself to a nice long bath regularly on top of that. The secondary loft and living area isnt a big priority for me but i wouldnt mind having it. I hate cooking and tend to eat out/delivery/microwave meals so all I want of a kitchen is really a toasteroven/microwave, sink, and a fridge. I probably wouldnt even use that cooktop. Love the staircase because ladders make me nervous. I am so excited to see something so close to what I would want!

    I am surprised that so many people weren’t that into this, but different strokes i guess!

    Did no one notice that the ‘living area’ is the size of a small closet? there’s no room at all for a couch/table? For the size of it, we don’t spend most of our waking hours in the bathroom, so some room for the 8-10 hours in the living area might be better used. Just saying. Unless I missed a picture …

    the home is lovely and for those who want a great bathroom, its fabulous. For some with busy lives, they want to come home sink into a lovely bath and then cook and go to sleep. for them this house works.
    My thing would be small bathroom and kitchen and lots of bedroom room and couch. that is what is great about tiny/small houses, everyone gets to have what they want. its so individual and no one is building a track house.

    When I saw the first photo of the tub/shower area, I was thinking “wow, a 6 foot long tub” and that I liked. Then the second photo came into view and that tub must be for giving the dog or a small child a bath. Disappointed that whomever took those photos distorted the actual size of the tub to get my attention and then made me feel like I’d been given the shaft when the “real” size was photographed for real. One message I have to people who do these kinds of photos, “don’t make people think something is bigger than what it really is because when you do that and they find out the actual size, your complete sales pitch/story becomes a lie and you loose”.

    I love this however I am not able to take showers due to disabilities I would rather take the shower out and place a garden tub in that area with a hand held shower over the tub. The kitchen is almost perfect however I would rather have a set of cabinets in place of the floating shelves. Would need a first floor bedroom big enough for a single size bed and small tv stand and some sort of closet maybe. Would like a living area with enough room for two comfortable chairs with small ottemens and room for a 42 inch tv my shell is a 12 x 32 with a nice little porch on the front this would be my dream home wonder if even possible
