    That loft looks really tight – the rest is lovely – but wow! major claustrophobia with that loft!!!

    Prices on the shell only and the fully finished versions seem very reasonable compared to lot of the companies I’ve seen on Tiny House Talk.

    Looks great and could skip the loft bedroom with just a slightly larger footprint.

    I agree about that loft – yikes! Way to create claustrophobia in a person!

    I’d just get rid of the loft, since couldn’t climb up there anyway (although a decent loft – with stairs -would be handy for grandchildren visits). Using it for storage would only allow me to accumulate stuff I really don’t need.

    I was also wondering – where is the stove or ccoktop? There’s no room on that counter near the sink.

    I agree w/everyone else, I already HAVE claustrophobia (thanks MRI machines!) and I couldn’t sleep there. I am always wondering about raising the kitchen/bathroom up and having a slide out queen bed w/extra room for wardrobe on the side.

      In many respects, this is a great place, except for that loft.

      Yes, a slide-out bed under a raised floor is a very good option. I saw one some time ago on one of these TH sites. Also, there are some high quality Murphy beds available. I think I saw ONE in all my research in this forum. Older folks would LOVE such an option – instead of trying to be a monkey. Safety first.

    I quote: “They offer a variety of sizes like 10×10, 8×10, 10×20, and 8×20 with prices starting at $5,599.”

    Are you kidding? My 8X12 shop was put up in half a day, and cost me $780. Last I checked at Lowes they offered a two-story shop, about 20X20, for just over $4,000 and close to $5,000 assembled on your property.

    • August 1, 2015, 9:43 pm

      It might be around the same price for a larger barebones from Lowes–but it won’t have heating, insulation, a bathroom or a kitchen. For those of us without a shop full of tools already, this isn’t that bad of an option/

      Maybe they mean finished like you see it minus the furniture because that would be a great deal. I like the way the windows are done, but I agree with others that the loft could be a little higher. Probably though, that would mean a waste of material, thus a price increase. I think
      I could live with the low ceiling in the loft if it meant saving money, depends on someone’s situation. Otherwise, I think it is a very nice house!

        August 2, 2015, 4:38 pm

        If they meant finished, they should have said finished. It does say they can be used as sheds. Quote: “for their customers to use as tiny homes, man caves, she-sheds, boat houses, cottages, sheds, and more.”
        A 8X10 shed, finished or not, for $5,599? Yeah, right, I’ll go out and buy a matched set at that price.

    Love it! If the quality of materials is as normal for the Amish (i.e. first class) I believe this to be very nice.

    That loft would be handy to store the grandkids and seasonal stuff. I can snooze on the couch.

    Theo, I looked at those Lowes sheds and workshops, and while priced low, the quality is suspect. I should think that two seasons of harsh central Florida summer rains will make mush of those I encountered. But a few weekends could duplicate something this nice…but good quality is not cheap….and cheap is seldom good.

    YMMV.

          Thank you, Eric! I am always in such a hurry when I am reading and trying to reply because I work a split schedule, and time is in such short supply. I didn’t even pay attention to my spelling, but you are right, it is “hear, hear”, short for “hear him”, or “hear this”. I stand corrected, but can’t promise a hurried misspelling won’t happen again, so keep on your toes 🙂

      I dunno. If I suggested storing my grandkids in that loft, I think they would cry. And then their mom would hit me.

    Not even kids want to attempt sitting up and hit their heads! Too low. Other than that, nice. Remember that other Amish house posted not long ago? Was a older, traditional type cabin, simple, had a little porch? It was nice and priced better (and larger) than typical tiny houses.

    August 3, 2015, 11:12 am

    Lisa…You had to remind me of MRI’s. Shame on you. The loft also reminded me of being in a casket with a window. Who needs that?

  • August 3, 2015, 11:26 am

    Though lovely, there is no storage to speak of, such as a closet, or shelves for dishes… just the few bins hanging over the counter. It does look spacious, but not for living in full time. This doesn’t appear to be on a trailer, so if it isn’t on a trailer, why didn’t they make it a bit taller for a more spacious loft? IF not on a trailer the sky is the limit in height in most cases, unless it is to be transported rather than built on site. I couldn’t lay on my back on that bed because my toes would hit the roof. That is WAY too tight!

    It is pretty, and the 10′ width really opens it up a lot, but the 20′ dimension was not utilized well. The price is actually pretty good considering the time/labor costs for insulation, plumbing and electrical. The workmanship seems nice except for the shot of the toilet, the trim around the wall there is all warbley.

    The biggest concern is the loft. In a 10′ width, a murphy bed is totally possible for the sofa area, so no loft is really needed.

    Nice build, overall.

    These flat-packed houses will require some assembly, but they jam-pack all the essentials, and even have a modular design if you want to combine more than one to make a tiny dream compound. Skylights, sleeping loft, and window seat storage make this home high on charm and cozy vibes.

    Am claustrophobic but live in a short bus (converted school bus) and wait till you see the little loft bed I’ve slept in! Literally roll in and out and no window. I’m 5’4 and the length is 5’8 ….I do store a grandkid in it occasionally…lol. Even a claustrophobic person can get used to a small space add long as you know you can get out and I find my small bus comforting. The design featured is ok, I worry about the quality and durability. I would live in it …erm..I think?

      To Joni…I am thinking about small bus tiny house living. Which size of bus do you have. Do you have something posted online about your home? I would love to hear how it is living in one and any recommendations you can make. I saw part of Marsha Cowan’s home on this site and have been hooked since.

    Nobody is forced to buy these. I’m assuming that an Amish built structure is a heck of a lot better than something from Lowe’s. For me it doesn’t matter. After seeing what tiny is all about I know I’d need 400-600 sq ft to be comfortable.

    • Avatar Eric
      August 30, 2016, 9:02 pm

      …and that’s perfectly fine. Whatever suits you. Don’t let anybody tell you, or insinuate, that 4-600 sq ft is too big, or huge. Whatever works for you is what you need.

    As for the “stick man” on the roof of the last picture, I think this unit was displayed in a civic center type building, and the little man is the symbol on the back wall that means men’s restroom!?

    Since it has a light/white interior finish my personal opinion is that it doesn’t need the sliding doors, perhaps a 1/2 window, same width to get more usable wall space, especially since you have a tall and wide enough window basically right next to the sliding door which is large enough to qualify as an egress opening. Agree with the other comments about the claustrophobic loft, even making the walls from 12 to 18 inches higher would make such a difference and still have a proportionate appearance from the outside. One last point, the total lack of storage in the kitchen, how about 2-3 upper cabinets or at least 4 – 6 open shelves on the walls.

    Very nice potential. The loft is way to tight, needs a taller roofline or at least a dormer and skylight. But again I’m sure clients can work with the builder and the builders work will continue to get dialed in. Thumbs up.

    #1 ~~ the loft ~~ too tight, and how are you supposed to get up there
    #2 ~~ no sink in the bathroom?
    #3 ~~ is that a little wood stove? Where does it vent too, there’s no tile or brick under it.
    #4 ~~ where is the cooking surface?
    Other than the above ~~ I know it’s probably a model unit. 🙂
