Looking for an affordable tiny house? This tiny house — on skids — is only $35k! While yes, you’ll need to pay for transport, if you live anywhere near Johnson City, Tennessee (where it currently resides) it might be the perfect affordable housing option.

What I love most about this tiny home (besides the price) is the entryway with a mudroom and full walk-in closet! This allows a perfect spot for you to store shoes, jackets, hats, bags, and all those items that end up without a home. You’ll also find a loft bedroom, a full kitchen, and a bathroom. We suspect the dimensions of this 240-sq.-ft. tiny home are 24×10. What do you think?

    Why do so many builders put a window where the sink is? Why not above the toilet.

      Hi Maria,

      That’s an interesting observation! The placement of windows in tiny houses, like in any home, can vary based on design preferences and practical considerations. Putting a window above the sink is a common choice because it serves several purposes:

      Natural Light: Having a window above the sink allows natural light to flood the kitchen area, making it a more pleasant and inviting space. It also reduces the need for artificial lighting during the day, which can be beneficial for energy efficiency in a tiny house.

      Aesthetics: Windows above the sink can add to the overall aesthetic appeal of the kitchen. They create a focal point and make the space feel more open and connected to the outdoors.

      Ventilation: Windows above the sink provide an opportunity for ventilation, especially when cooking or washing dishes. They can help remove cooking odors and prevent moisture buildup.

      View while doing dishes: A window right above your sink gives you something to look at outside while you’re busy washing any dishes by hand.

      As for placing a window above the toilet, it’s less common due to a few reasons:

      Privacy: Windows above the toilet might compromise privacy, especially in tiny houses where space is limited, and layout options can be constrained. Many people prefer to keep windows higher on the wall in the bathroom to maintain privacy. They may also opt for a frosted glass window in the bathroom to alleviate this concern.

      Wall Space: In tiny houses, every inch of space matters. Placing a window above the toilet could limit the available wall space for storage or other essential bathroom fixtures.

      However, every design choice is subjective, and some builders may opt for windows in different locations based on individual preferences or unique layouts. It’s essential to strike a balance between functionality, aesthetics, and practicality in tiny house design.

      If you have any specific ideas or preferences for window placement, feel free to discuss them with your builder or designer to create a custom tiny house that suits your needs perfectly.

      Thanks for your question, and we hope this explanation helps clarify at least some of the reasons behind the common window placements in tiny houses.

      Best regards,
