28ft Pacific Getaway Tiny House with Transforming Bedroom/Dining Room: Built by Handcrafted Movement!


This is the 28ft Pacific Getaway Tiny House on Wheels by Handcrafted Movement in Battle Ground, Washington.

When you step inside, the area to your left transforms between a bedroom and dining room but it can also be used as a hobby room (like for yoga or for kids to play) since both the bed and the dining table can be stored up into the walls. Pretty cool feature, right? Please enjoy and learn more below!

    I like it, to bad the front porch does not fold up against the house for transporting.

    • James D. December 10, 2017, 12:19 pm

      It looks to be the same basic design like the last one posted here, so the porch should be able to be put away as the builder stated in the comments of the previous version that it can be taken apart and folded/stored away in a few minutes.

      • Tom Osterdock December 11, 2017, 12:03 am

        If it does not fold up then it is difficult for many.

        • James D. December 11, 2017, 8:53 am

          Possibly, but it really depends on how it gets put away and how long it takes… Along with many other considerations as to whether it would actually be the easiest and most ideal solution or not.

          Until that process gets shown it’s hard to say but we can see from the photos that door and the space next to it is recessed for about the same width as the deck, which is directly below that recess.

          So it’s possible the deck does fold against it. But the only thing I know for certain is that the posts and beams slide apart once you detach the two connection points from the house and that it was stated that it can be done in a matter of minutes.

        • Tom Osterdock December 11, 2017, 5:53 pm

          I agree James and if it did fold into that space then they should use it as a very large selling point.

    So many beautiful features about this home. Seems very spacious.

    I love the convertible open space, what a great idea! Having a place to do yoga is important for health.
    I love the kitchen, too. The only change I would make would be to move the bathroom away from the kitchen, this always grosses me out when a bathroom of any size is right next to the food prep area, this is a big problem for me!
    Otherwise, lovely tiny house.

    I love this time home. It is a real home. Light airy and very efficient. It is beautiful.

  • Michael December 10, 2017, 7:08 pm

    It shows that that fol up furniture allow multipurpose use for a tiny space. The bed is the most space consuming piece and it is mostly only 1/3 of the day in use.
    A dining table has a similar function and used usually three times a day only.
    I agree with Tom that a fold up porch would be perfect.
    The only thing I don’t like is sleeping loft and overall height which leads to a bad proportion of the width and height ratio, makes is more vulnerable for strong winds and has their disadvantages when on the road.

    • James D. December 11, 2017, 9:54 am

      More height than width can be a issue for strong side winds but it also depends on weight distribution… Mind, Tiny Houses tend to weigh a lot and that makes them less vulnerable than much lighter structures to strong side winds, especially if very bottom heavy…

      Mind, as well, we have examples like the Tiny Houses that were in Florida during the last hurricane that suffered no damage, which would indicate they aren’t particularly easy to knock over and there’s examples like Tiny House Expedition that have towed their Tiny House over 40,000 miles and similarly haven’t had a issue with the height…

      Though, it is potentially a bigger issue if you make it top heavy… Something like a gravity fed water system, for example, would have to be emptied for safe transport.

      While the height could work against it while making turns at high speed and you may have to limit the top speed for safe towing…

  • Bob December 10, 2017, 11:10 pm

    I like the kitchen setup especially where the sink is setting. Easy to access as well as not having to “side step” to get to it. More of a pivot process without having to actually move. Better than I have now.

    The Fridge is in a nice location as well and hoping it opens from the right rather than the left.

    Only one thing bothers me, however, and I’ve seen this in many other models with four chairs and a drop down dinner table. Where do you put the chairs when not in use? Maybe hang them up on a high hook or something or put in the bathroom or stack them someplace out of the way like outside?

    Didn’t see a wood or pellet burning heat unit. There is an electric heater attached to the wall in the play room but that is not sufficient to heat the entire house. I know, I had one in a 10×10 bedroom and just to get the temp to 65 degrees on a cold winter night in the 20’s, the door had to be shut and a fan positioned under it to push the cold air into it. With this setup there is no door, just drapes which won’t seal off the room. Thus, am assuming this configuration is not well suited for areas where the temperature drops below 30 at any time of day or night.

    • James D. December 11, 2017, 10:25 am

      Effectiveness of heaters can depend on how well insulated the house is… Something approaching a passive house standard could heat even this space with very little heat vs needing a full on furnace for a non-well-insulated structure.

      However, chances are though that you’re correct that this heater would not be sufficient. But the owner could be planning on doing the install themselves.

      Things like wood stoves aren’t always done by the builder either because the owner is trying to save some money on the house and can do it more cheaply themselves, or there’s a liability issue because of where the builder is operating could have stricter regulation on things like a wood stove that the owner may not have the same issue where they are going to be placing the house.

      Mind, some places require the chimney/flute pipe to extend very high but that would not be practical for moving the house and could be easier to install on location, after the house is delivered.

      Alternatively, on a property, there are external wood fire furnaces that can supply multiple buildings with heat and if this is going to be a guest house then it may be just one of multiple structures on the property and they’ll just run the heat to it as needed.

      Or perhaps the owner is into alternatives like solar thermal… Or the house may have been designed with radiant floor heating and the electric heater may be just to give an occasional boost when it gets particularly cold outside…

      For the chairs, I only see three and two go by the bar counter that’s part of the kitchen area and the third goes outside by that small table on the porch area… You can probably stack them when traveling as well… They look thin enough to fit into that closet in the bathroom to strap them to the lower hanging bar for safe transport.

      Though, there are fold flat chairs that can be hanged on the wall you could opt for instead. Some can even look like you have art hanging up rather than chairs… Or chairs that can slide into other furniture, like wall shelves and basically disappear when not in use.

      There’s also a table design where the table top is composed of individual slats that unfurl from a role that can be embedded in the wall… So you can pull the leg supports out and unfurl the table to cover it for just about any length you may need… Versus your standard folding table that can be only of a set size or the version with inserts, which you are limited by the number of inserts and space to store them, along with the extra time that takes.

      If the table had been placed along with the Murphy bed then it could have been extended much further out to accommodate more people.

      Alternatively, you could also have had a coach on the underside of the Murphy bed that it converts into when up…

      Needless to say, people have lots of options these days…
