    I like the clean lines and layout. I would add more shelving and cabinets to make more livable?

      I love the shelves, and I plan to have a cabinet with glass doors in the living room area to house the 80+year-old tea set that my mother hand painted, and I will find space for the 6 brass quail family that my dad loved. Without some things that express one’s connection to family or other people who are important to them, or something to express who they are and what is important to them, it is likely to be a rather sterile environment. Shelves/cabinets are for the things we need, but also the things we love and would not want to ever part with. I believe everyone has an emotional attachment to something they would not willingly part with. Most of our much cherished possessions will be given to our adult children who have each expressed their desire to have those things, but there are some that I will not yet part with, nor do I have to. Downsizing into a tiny home does not have to mean living like a monk. Part of the beauty of a tiny home is having not just what one needs, but surrounding yourself with things that you love so that it won’t be just a house, but a real home. Those things ground a person, and remind them of who they are.

      HOME. A place where, if my friends unknowingly walked into it, would know it is where Barbara lives. I have done it in hotel & motel rooms, when hubby was TDY and we were away from our permanent home for extended periods of time. I did it for my children when we moved across the country several times and they would have otherwise felt displaced. A few very personal possessions on display make your home unique to you, and they are always there to welcome you HOME.

      Sorry – I didn’t mean to turn this into an article!

        I meant to add a comment to my comment and ended up “reporting” myself. I really meant that I would add kitchen cabinets and shelves to make the kitchen more usable for me:). Again, I love the simplicity and you are all correct, the less clutter, the more space in a tiny home!

    Carrie, adding more shelves is inviting you to collect things which you don’t need. Besides that it makes a tiny place smaller.
    Beside the sleeping lofts – but that’s my personal taste – the floor plan and uncluttered design looks great to me. Putting a bed which lifts up to the ceiling instead of the lofts would allow to reduce the overall height and then it would be easier to tow.

      That sounds intriguing, please elaborate or provide link to explain what you mean.

        ET do you mean the lifting up bed?

        • ET
          November 9, 2015, 10:28 am

          Yes, the bed. Is such a thing possible/feasible in a tiny house?

        • Michael
          November 9, 2015, 5:51 pm

          ET, its easy just look for toy haulers with living quarters. They have mostly a queen size lifting up bed to make space for a quad or so.
          Beside that you can get a set including the electric motor where they are selling RV parts.
          Hope it helps.

          I see, it’s like the whole loft goes up and down on rails attached the walls. Thanks for the idea!

        • Michael
          November 10, 2015, 4:51 am

          you are welcome. Its in my opinion the only way to have a comfortable bed without climbing up to a loft or a bed sofa where you have to put on/remove your linen every day.

      Michael, you said : “. . . adding more shelves is inviting you to collect things which you don’t need.” I believe that’s up to the person who actually lives in the home. Over the years I have collected so many things, but am now downsizing. Yet I will definitely keep and provide space for the small carved wood, porcelain, and clay items that make me happy.

    Personally, i think it’s better to do whatever you can to enhance to living experience when you are parked and not worry so much about moving. How often do you move? To me it’s worth whatever hassle you have to do – including splitting the house in two, if needed – to optimize your space and enhance your time in the house.

    GREAT design! Light & bright lovely! The one I’m designing is very similar, but 12-15 ft. longer, w/downstairs bedroom and larger kitchen on a gooseneck trailer. Bathrooms should always be at the opposite end from the kitchen IMHO. It’s the R.N. thing in me!

    • Michael
      November 7, 2015, 11:06 pm

      A gooseneck is the better choice for sure, less hassle with hitch weight and easier to tow. My thoughts are going into the same direction. It would be great if you would share them. Thanks.

      • Barbara
        November 8, 2015, 9:47 am

        A gooseneck is better for the very long trailer I plan to have, not only for weight, but it is also more maneuverable and the configuration offers a bonus space over the gooseneck itself for a large (always a relative term in tiny house terms) closet, or even a laundry room, as one owner had. It will probably be a closet space for us, but that space is large enough for a sit-down-only office or hobby space if needed. Hubby will argue for the closet, but I’d make it a sewing space! ?

    I love the layout with bathroom one end and kitchen the other!

  • Cindy

    The only thing I would change is the built-in couch. I’d sacrafice space and storage for a real loveseat.

  • Julie B

    I am adamant about getting a tiny home. I love this layout but would need steps that go to the master loft. I wonder if there’s a way to incorporate a staircase.

    • November 8, 2015, 10:44 pm

      Yes, we can incorporate a staircase to the master loft. It will reduce the entertainment wall, but yes, it is possible! Thank you for your nice comments!

    • Vanyel
      November 10, 2015, 8:15 pm

      There are plenty of houses with this exact floor plan that have stairs over where the fridge or couch is (I’ve seen both) so it’s totally doable.

    This is a very beautiful tiny house. It gives the illusion of spaciousness as well as very tastefully decorated. I love the colors and especially that shower curtain Wow!

    • November 8, 2015, 10:45 pm

      Thank you so much for the nice comments!

  • November 10, 2015, 9:24 am

    Hi Emily & Mark,

    What a great place you build. I love the set up and all the windows it gives off a lot of light, it’s bright and airy in there. I like the fact that you have two lofts set up. Your bathroom is cute, I love the shower curtains and all the nice touches you have throughout your tiny house. I have to agree with your philosophy as far as living pay check to pay check, or living to have to work. It should be the other way around. I took your names and information down for later down the road for when I’m ready to get involved with finally purchasing one for myself. Really nice craftsmanship!! Sincerely, Carol Perry

    • November 10, 2015, 4:58 pm

      Thank you so much Carol! It means so much to hear such nice things about the tiny house! We appreciate it!!

    They did a wonderful job on this unit I watch this be built from start to finish. Mark did such a wonderful job and Emily did such a wonderful job there attention to detail and the creativity is amazing. They actually let me stay in it for a month to try it out (fringe benefit of being best friends with Mini-Mansions Builder). It was so cozy yet open and not claustrophobic it was very comfortable the way they designed it I really enjoyed it I hated to leave. They are working on a design special for me that’s going to have to be huge I have eight kids. Lol. Such a very unique design I don’t think you’ll ever see one just like it. And it’s made just like a regular home very strong very well-built marks but a homebuilder for 30 years so his craftsmanship is really well expressed in this unit. Emily’s put her thumbprint on it with her flare for design and color coordination. Thanks for letting me be your guinea pig it was a real treat trying out your tiny home. I can’t wait to get started building mine. Love Paul

      Aww! Thank you Paul! We love you!

    Very well done and a very good use of space. The finishes are just amazing. The color palette chosen was perfect and I love the very clean lines

    LOVE it! what’s the total cost?

  • Kathy
    February 17, 2016, 6:22 pm

    Nicely done! I like the kitchen and bathroom being at opposite ends of the house. I would love however to see your take on space utilization when you add a staircase with storage, or a clothes closet, or the fridge underneath.

  • Greg Burns
    February 17, 2016, 7:20 pm

    REALLY a GREAT place! My ONLY “concern” is how LOW that bathroom window is right next to the toilet! YIKES! Should the folks who own such a place leave a “tip jar” outside for the, um, “free show”? LOL! ;-D

  • Gabrielle Charest
    February 18, 2016, 5:52 am

    Cute, colorful, and cozy. As far as the low window is concerned, you can always put a design on the glass. For example, tape a piece of open fabric such as lace, then spray on some acrylic paint which will leave the design on the window. Or do what I did, and paint the glass with watered down blue acrylic. Make it look like water. Paint on some tiny fish.

    I really like the little fireplace. Can I get information about it? A THOW is definitely in my future and I am interested in the fireplace.

    I am ready to build one: got the land, the $, the laborers, but my husband of 25 years who is a general contractor and builder here in Houston thinks I am crazy, that no one here in Tx. Will buy that. Please help me prove him wrong.

  • Marina

    I love the idea of tiny houses for many reasons but if I can’t live in one I at least want to build one and sell it, the problem is my husband of 25 years who is also a builder and general contractor here in Houston, Tx. He thinks is a bad idea, that no one will buy it, that it’s crazy, and I know I can do this I got the $, the help ( his workers), and the desire to do it, now how do I convince him to agree with me and let me make my dream a reality. Anyone have an idea please let me know.

    I really love this plan and the colors. What I would need is to have a bed on the main floor since I’m not getting younger. Then I’d like lofts for my sons and eventually their families to visit. I dream daily about the tv show about the lady who retired in a thow in HI! You could have a huge outdoor living room & dining area in a place like that. And I would feel so homey and comforted if I lived in a tiny easy-to-keep-clean-and-maintain house on just my Social Security. Are these houses safe to live-in? Are break-ins a problem? Do people ever just steal the houses? Could someone give me some answers please? You guys in MO are close to me in IN. I’ll keep your business name on file for sure!
