I think I am seeing more and more of these builds that are pricing themselves out of the market.
No, the market is just no longer a small niche anymore.
It used to be that Tiny Houses were smaller than 8’x16’… Now, they can go up to 14’x40’…
They used to be all made DIY… Now, they can be done either DIY, or by commercial builder, or a combination of both, which opens them up to far more people than before…
They used to be very basic… Now they can be engineered and use advance materials and components to support just about any kind of lifestyle and/or personal preferences… Mainstream companies like Ikea even sell products specifically for tiny homes now and people no longer have to improvise everything…
It used to be they had more in common with RV’s, often salvaging RV parts and materials for the build… Now they can be one of kind creations that far exceed what any RV can offer…
It used to be they were only for individuals or maybe a couple… Now, they can support entire families and/or people with special needs like wheelchair access, etc.
So to say they’re pricing themselves out of the market ignores the actual size of the market and how much it has grown…
Tiny Houses simply are no longer only for those with no other options but rather for a whole range of people who simply want to live a more efficient life that better suites their needs and desired lifestyle…
Besides, this is a pretty big tiny house that because it’s constructed with SIPs is still light enough to be towed by a regular 2018 and later model 1/2 ton truck but still strong enough to withstand a category 5 hurricane and it’s better insulated than most Tiny Houses…
So you’ll be saving on towing, tow vehicle, maintenance, and energy costs in the long run, compared to much heavier houses made of cheaper materials like wood…
Sorry, but this one is an eyesore. One big nasty box with no character or coziness. The countertop does not fit well with the other colors and is way too dominating. And the stained wood staircase is not well made. The layout is not good. It is a waste of space.
No, you just don’t like how it looks but it’s a house that wasn’t made for you, so that doesn’t matter…
When houses are custom, they only have to fit what the owner prefers and what works for them… Everyone else can just do it their own way when they do theirs…
That’s the appeal of custom homes, having it your way!
But it’s also what you have to get used to when viewing other people’s houses because everyone can have very different preferences and what works for one person may not work for another and vice versa…
Understand, what people find visually appealing and displeasing can be very d
… very different!
I’m surprised this is from a custom builder. Recently, there has been DIY homes featured that looked a lot more professional.
Why be surprised just because it’s not a design you like, custom builders build what their customers want and there’s a wide range of what they can be asked to build…
Most notably in this design is the fact it’s only 6,280lbs… Most 8′ x 24′ houses are going to be well over 10,000 lbs… Being thousands of pounds lighter means weight was a factor in how it was designed…
Like I often tell people, there’s always trade offs and reasons why people don’t all do it the same…
Understand as well that there are different types of professional builders… Some you go to for how they can make the house look, others you go to because they can do it at lower cost than others, and yet others you go to because they can engineer the house to function the way you need it to that may go beyond what a basic house requires…
It’s nice when a builder can do all of the above equally well but they tend to price their homes up to and over the $100K mark… So often people go to builders with just the specialty they need to keep it within whatever budget they have to work with, and the result is whatever the priority was and what was possible with the given budget to get done…
Also, don’t always expect a builder to present a house in its finished state… Many times the owner will continue to do work on it after they get it because it’s cheaper for them to do much of the finishing work themselves.
Excellent points as usual, James, thanks so much for pointing it all out!
I do like the outside of the house, I like tiny houses that have a simple form much better than those with lots of dormers and roof landscapes. We live in 21st century, not in a fairytale. It is tiny, so it can be a simple box. If I ever will build one (and I do think about it), it will be similar.
But in the inside I agree with the person who criticized the stairs. They do not look like made by a professional carpenter and under the steps there is a lot of wasted space. In my opinion they do not look nice.
The colour of the countertop in the kitchen is not well chosen. It would be okay if you produce this for a person who has chosen this colour, but if it is for sale and you do not know who will buy it, the blue is far too intense. It is not a neutral colour. And there is space between the stove and the sink, but just a little bit, not enough to place a pot. On the right side of the sink there also is just a little bit of space, but not really enough to put something. Either you leave space, then it should be a little bit bigger, or you don’t leave one, then don’t waste space. The size of the sink itself seems good to me.
For the table I prefer a solution where you can sit opposite the second person and look into their face, this is why I would prefer a folding table that would need more space, but on the other hand you can put it away if you do not need it.
The shower curtain is outside(!) the shower, which I think is not a very clever solution.
In most U.S. tiny houses I see a shower head fixed high up on the wall. Here in Europe we prefer a shower head that you can take in your hand or vary the hight with a flexible solution. I do not want to wash my hair every time I take a shower.
In my tiny house I would have a compost toilet (Nature’s head seems to be a really good one, you can even buy it in Europe meanwhile), but if it shall be a flush toilet, there are solutions where the water tank is hidden in the wall or in a tile-covered box so you do not see it and the toilet bowl can be fixed hanging on the wall without a “foot”, which makes it much easier to clean the floor underneath and looks better as I think.

One more point: Who would sleep under the roof with the head on the lower side? You would bang your head when sitting up. No space for a night stand on the other side, this is probably why you’ve put it like this.
I would prefer space for my head to a night stand.
What I do like is that the guy takes his shoes off before he walks upstairs. In many tiny house videos I’ve seen people lying down in the bed with their shoes on. Not even for a short video moment I would want this in my house.
Actually, most people get up moving towards the foot of the bed. So you normally want the high point of the ceiling to be there rather than towards your head where you will be laying down.
When you’re getting up, you’re not rising in a straight line but an arc headed towards your feet. So your head will actually be moving away from the low point in the ceiling and towards the higher point in the ceiling.
If you did it the opposite way then you would be heading towards the lower point in the ceiling instead and thus more likely to hit your head…
It’s only bad if you like to do something like read in a sitting position in bed as you can’t lean back against the wall like you would with a headboard but the loft is only meant for sleeping.
But you can go with a bigger loft if you want a nightstand and opt for a more flat roof if you want more headroom on both sides… Tiny Houses don’t really need a steep pitch roof, it’s mainly done to make them look more like regular houses or if you need to be able to mount solar panels and have a good angle towards the sun…
You can otherwise opt instead for a main floor bedroom and not deal with the loft at all… It’s mainly to take advantage of vertical space so to help keep costs lower and keep from needing to make the trailer too long, for easier towing or use an alternative solution like an elevator bed.
For the shower curtain, there’s typically two layers… An inner layer you keep inside the shower and the outer layer, which is more for decorative purposes…
Mind, the above is not showing the house with the owner moved in, so everything is just what the builder quickly put in to give the tour. Meaning it’s just staging and not how the owner will actually have everything.
The couch, the bed, the curtains, etc. are only staging and not what the owner will put in…
While, as a custom house, it is specifically built for someone and designed how they wanted it… We just won’t know what it will finally look like after the owner moves into it, only what it looked like before delivery but a lot can still change by the time the owner is done with it…
Maybe the trouble with the 21st Century is that most modern architecture is so ugly, bland and without character. I’d take a Dible Tudor over a box any day.
As for THIS box, its exterior is my only major quibble. Too bland. But the interior has a pretty good layout IMO. I like the stairs and the storage underneath. I like the bathroom a lot – it’s small, but doesn’t seem cramped. I would never choose this over a Zyl Vardos, but this gets the job done. Not a bad price, either.
Just one example of many existing “boxes” that are tiny, simple and beautiful:
