Sleeping in the loft for a few nights should cure most anyone of wanting them.
I’d think more living than bath room would be better too. How much time is spent in the bath?
Sadly both are common as is limiting to 8’wide, go 10-12′ unless you have too. If not moving often, a 12′ wide permit is cheap for a much better home.
Take the space, materials for both and make it wider with comfortable seating would be more livable.
jerryd – I’ve been looking at lots of Tiny Houses for the last year or so, and it is clear to me that the trailers being 8 feet wide really limits where things can be put and really restricts design options. People have done some amazing things to try to deal with this, but I imagine an 12 x 20 house allows for more options that an 8 x 20. As I wouldn’t plan to be moving my house very many times, I am really starting to lean toward the wider.
I just built a 12’x12′ with bath, kitchen on one wall gives a 10-12′ open space for whatever one wants works out great. It actually has 2 2’x12′ lofts but used for storage.
For moving just hire a tow truck if on wheels.
Up to 12×16 could be picked up, slide on a flat bed wrecker or flat bed trailer to any size and moved cheaply, easily especially if designed for it.
A detail in Fla, other places is buy a dead mobile home on a lot and take it off the frame, then ‘repair’ it to what you want needing no permits, hurricane rated plans, etc. All you have to do is rebuild it as good or better than MH was which is easy.
This avoids $10k in many cases vs buying new land.
I’m doing slowly a 2-4 unit compound of TH’s near Tampa this way.
Was at the Colorado Springs Jamboree a couple of months ago and heard Derek “Deek” Diedricksen talk on Friday afternoon. One of his recommendations was building on skids. You can still move it if you need to and you’re not limited to 8′ on a trailer. Made perfect sense to me…since I want to do a prefab shed/cabin and finish the inside myself to semi-retire in when I get ready to do this. Going this route…want to pay for it as I go.
jerryd, will the mobile home frame be robust enough? I think a house will be heavier than a mobile home. However, it sounds like this might be a nice way to get around trying to find a place that will let a person have a tiny house. When you finish your 12 x 12, I hope you post pictures.
Jerry, I hope you will share photo with us of your compound.
Great point!!! Would love to see more of this idea – wider tiny houses that don’t get moved around a lot.
I could definitely vacation here.
Where do you fing that fold upper ladder . It’s awesome
Does anyone have any idea about the whereabouts of Cahow? Her comments make most enjoyable reading.
Incredible home and such creative use of the space!
Beautiful Tiny House! I would enjoy vacationing here. It would be fun to climb into the loft with a book. My dog would enjoy the patio if allowed.
*Also wondering about Cahow. Hopefully she is well and enjoying a little vacay in MI or visiting one of the many TH BNB’s Alex and Andrea share with us.
For the Tiny Houses on Wheels, this is as close to perfection as I have seen yet. Each individual part is smartly designed, but all come together to make a complete whole. This includes the outdoor living space adding to, and maximizing the whole.
I have an idea for the “elderly/disabled” who were having troubles with a loft bed idea. How about cut a square large enough to fit a wheelchair for sizing, from the floor of the loft in say the middle of the house above the through way, fit it with four pulls one at each corner to keep it steady when weighted. Attach it to the roofing again with pulls using a chain like roping system or really strong ropes, make a drop down floor like elevator so one could pull it up or down, perhaps make it electronic due to waning strength of elders and power with solar/battery? Anyone an engineer that could think up how to make that work? Just an idea, hope it helps. Those who would need one might suggest to their builders and let them figure it out. God bless and happy trails! A really strong dumb waiter 🙂 Keep smiling my friends.
Hi Glema. I slept in a loft for 6 years in my first tiny home, and I can tell you that access is NOT the only issue with lofts, if one is older or physically compromised. EVERYTHING must be done on your knees. The bed gets made/unmade while you are IN it – requiring quite a bit of strength to lift the mattress for a fitted sheet. I tried a sleeping bag for a while, but zipping/unzipping several times a night is a pain in the neck. I’m sure dormers help by giving room around the bed that I didn’t have in my loft, but I think anyone contemplating a tiny house sleeping loft would be smart to spend several days in one before making a decision. Make the bed; change the sheets; move the mattress around. I now have a slightly longer home with a Murphy bed downstairs and I am very happy with it.
Thanks for the response Cathy. Sorry to hear you had a hard time. Yours sounds like first hand knowledge so of course you would know better than I. I merely make suggestions for solutions to difficulties mentioned. Each individual would of course take into consideration their own set of circumstances. I only hope to help here and there with the ideas God grants as I think about the problem. Thanks again. Thanks Alex for the article. God bless one and all. Happy trails!
Nice comment. And well put .Unfortunatly,without a great deal of expense,those with Disability,would find it very tough.Even entry,into TH.Mind you not impossible ,if purpose built.
Where in Tampa is the tiny home neighborhood?
Well done.At last someone has the insight to use pull out Tansu.Im lucky as main bedroom only 3-6″ off main floor. Due to base being goose neck.Stairs are centred,so just looks like a bank of drawers.When closed .Granted the risers are 9 ” treads 24 W x 11-12″ D.Another alternative to totally conceal,is pocket doors ,as the ones used in TV entertainment units.I have noticed over the years so many remarks about ladders! It is possible to rise up 7 ft,with a turn ,and cut-out,and not loose to much space. Another suggestion,is length. Cantilever ,over base 2 ft,or more. and gain space. Run floor joists length wise ,instead of across.Adds more longitudinal strength to the base? Will Pin,as we progress,winter project.
Very nice…! I especially love the throw cover on the edge of the bed, Just picture perfect… The stage is set just exquisitely… That should put a crow bar into a few pocketbooks …! No…! It’s a beautiful house that has decor to die for…! And you too can have built the same…And more than likely far less expensive, than what they are asking for this beautiful house…..
Open shelving drives me crazy because all the dishes collect dust. But, a place that is being rented out should at the very least turn their cups and glasses upside down. This place wouldn’t pass any local health code because of the way the dishes are stored in these photos.
Very well done.Halfway through mine.300 plus sq.On a goose neck.Love the personal touch.And not diversifying from TH And making a modern home which seems to be the trend. A lot of TH,S are now becoming ,yuppy dens. Well done. C
There are two great tiny house debates
1. Sleeping down stairs or in the loft; followed by
2. Ladder or stairs.
I love this house, because of the bottom three stairs being part of a drawers/coffee table combination. I think that that idea – with not a ladder in this house – but more stairs would be an act of genius.
Love this idea.
This is one of the nicest tiny homes. I love it! I could so see myself vacationing in it. Great atmosphere
Where in Tampa is TH community being built? Has it been finished? I live 1 hour north of Tampa. Thanks!
I love the outside color of the house. It blends into nature. I’d like to see more comfortable couches for lounging around in these tinies.
That ladder is a beautifully engineered piece! Well done.
