    One thing to add…as an alternative to the fixed wall for the bedroom, one could simply hang a heavy curtain instead.
    That would easily allow you to define the bedroom dimensions to suit your needs, in case you aren’t happy with the location of the fixed wall, or if you want to change things at a later date (such as eliminating the wall altogether).

    My personal opinion… bung two of these together and you’d have a usable home, for the vast majority of people.
    Either one relatively long home, or a more squarish home which would be more to my liking.
    As a crusty old fella, mobility is getting more restricted and I would need the space.
    Now if only I could afford Nirs Pearlson’s River Road design. S-i-g-h… 💖

      Are you talking about this place? –> http://www.green-building.com/projects/river-road/
      I don’t know. It seems like a lot of little rooms.
      A more efficient design might be more something like this –> https://joanheatonarchitects.com/portfolio/modern-cabin/
      Notice how the room is more open and all on one level.
      For someone with mobility issues, I would think this would be a more appealing layout, since everything can be accessed as easily as strolling across a small room.
      That cabin is 800 sq. ft. and plans are available from the architect.

    The two indents are a waste of space. A porch is easily added to the exterior and if really felt necessary, covered by an overhanging roof.
    Jeff won’t be happy until he owns us all.

      You could still do that by altering the design so that there is amply roof overhang and you could build out a structure which could be used as a deck, making the “deck” you see in the pics, a step that leads down to the actual deck.

    I love this design. It reminds me of our first previously owned TH at 260 sq ft. We but a 5′ H x 6′ L x 12″ W bookcase between the bedroom and the living room. Two tiny sheds weres attached one at the back for a bathroom and towards the front for a kitchen that was open to the Living Room. Outside the two sheds were back to back.

    Where is the bathroom?

    Don’t see a bathroom on the design. Did I miss something? Why would you camm this a “home” if there is no toilet???

      You might be able to design a bathroom within the space (there are vans w/ bathrooms) but you could also have another structure for that and connect them via a covered deck or something like that.

      Uh, no, they didn’t call it a home… Besides, those are just two examples of the many ways it can be configured. It’s a kit for the structure but everything in it is up to you when you put it together.

      These are primarily meant for secondary structures, like what you would put in your back yard for an extra usable space. So won’t usually need to be completely self contained when it can be just an unattached extension of the main house.

      Zoning restrictions can also sometimes make it so the secondary structure either can’t have a bathroom or can’t have a kitchen because of the conflict of having two houses on the same lot. So what some can do with this may depend on their local rules…

      While in other places, where more options are available, people may just prefer keeping the bathroom separate because they don’t want a close proximity between the kitchen and bathroom, for example… Among many other reasons for doing it differently…

    Please don’t call it a home or house when you have No bathroom. You can not live her without one. This is more of a shed. Put In a composting toliet and sink you have a home. But not in the middle of the livingroom

      My feelings exactly!! Where do you expect guests to go to the bathroom? I guess you could give them a 5 gallon bucket and a roll of toilet paper

      A few things to understand…

      1) Home is a generic term that refers to anything someone is living in, irregardless of whether it was designed to be a home or not. So there aren’t actual requirements for it and just about anything can be called a home…

      2) A House is specifically a type of building but there’s actually over 34 different types, which not all will be configured the way you are used to or expect. In this case, you can actually look up Garden House in the dictionary and find that it is specifically a small, usually open, structure that provides shelter in a garden…

      3) Structures people live in don’t have to be monolithic (all in one). They can be detached and spread to multiple structures with some having specialized uses like a storage shed, office, workshop, etc.

      It used to be common that bathrooms were one of the separate structures. Outhouses being an example, which you’ll still find in use in many parts of the world.

      Practicality and zoning can sometimes make this still the case when you’re adding to an existing lot, which means there’s already a bathroom in the main house and it is either prohibited or won’t always make sense to add one to the secondary structure.

      A dry cabin is another example, because it may be in a cold climate where it’s more practical to keep water usage in a separate structure rather than have the risk of it damaging the main structure during freezing winters.

      Some arrangements also may be preferable to some people. Like those who want more separation between the kitchen and bathroom spaces, for example, will rather add another structure for the bathroom or again just use the one in the main house as this will most often be used as a secondary structure… Just like adding a detached bedroom, etc.

      Besides, it’s a kit… So you make of it what you will because the owner will be the actual builder and final designer of the layout…

        Re: #1 – Exactly!
        I once spent a summer living in the back of my 1973 Chevy Vega station wagon.
        It didn’t have a kitchen or a bathroom, but you can bet your bippy I called it home!
