    I love it! It is very Hobbity to me. I would do a larger fridge and loose the dishwasher for storage. Since it is just me there really isn’t a need. I think I would put a washer/dryer in the bathroom as it looks like there is space.

    I LOVE the white and natural wood together! So appealing! The aesthetic of this tiny home is truly wonderful and many would love it and live in it without making any changes. I think I would make at least a few changes and question one design decision…also something I would change. My question is why did they elevate the kitchen? My guess is so it would fit in with the raised areas by the wheel wells (an assumption I am willing to be wrong about) as well as seeing another opportunity to increase storage. Because I always eye purchases with a long view in mind and the fact that I am no Spring Chicken, I would prefer to have the floor areas all the same level even though just one step doesn’t seem like that much of an effort. I have known people that found even one step to be a bit of a pain as they aged. Storage units could be built to cover the wheel wells and that would make up for whatever storage there is in the elevated kitchen floor…it does look like there is a drawer front visible but again, I may be wrong. If I am wrong, then they missed a major opportunity for that additional storage. Staying with the kitchen, I would agree with others who have said that they would choose to have a full-sized refrigerator. The small one is great if you are only going to vacation in it or rent it out on Airbnb but I am thinking of this as a full-time residence for a long time. Though the fireplace is a luxurious addition, I would be willing to skip that to make the living area even more useful. I’d get rid of that rather small elevated reclining/sleeping thingy and put in another full-sized sofa with an even larger window…maybe even a daybed, always useful as a sleeping area. I would choose to have the loft either as storage…some possessions are difficult to part with and you need somewhere to put them…or as a guest area. I lived in a place with a sleeping loft long ago when a ladder was easier to maneuver because I was in my 20’s and I could still manage it but again, aging is something to consider. And the bathroom could be arranged better. I can see that it can work perfectly well as designed but if that leaded window was moved over, you could have a shower that was a full square and put a slightly larger vanity on the other side. Someone mentioned putting a washer/dryer in the bathroom and with some clever thought, could be fit in, as well. Again, all of these thoughts would fit my own needs so others might say leave it as is. And I wholeheartedly agree that it is a beautiful little home even without my suggested changes. Just so homey feeling…cozy. The exterior is very nice, too. Well done!

      There’s a trap door under the carpet pad as well as the access panel you noticed for the raised floor in the kitchen.

      However, something to keep in mind is this is an off-grid property. So things like the fireplace may be more of a necessity than a luxury when it can be the primary heating option. Smoke from the fire can also help keep mosquitoes away, and you can burn certain herbs to enhance the effect to make better use of that deck at night.

      While storage space includes making room for things like water tanks, batteries for the solar power system, etc. Also, the wheel wells extend to under the kitchen to right about where the sink and range are located. So without raised floor the dishwasher and range may need to be pushed to the corner by the door, and you’d lose some under counter storage.

      The amount of storage needed to replace it and put it over the wheel wells would eliminate one window and force the other further away, so you’d lose natural light in the middle of the home, reduce a bit of the living space, and would make the interior feel smaller.

      While you could just raise the whole floor but that would reduce the space available for the loft…

      Alternative, that may work better, would be to have a ramp instead of a step, just extend the transition from the kitchen to where the couch is located.

      Or swap kitchen with living room, would leave bathroom next to kitchen but easier to fit the couch, etc. over the wheel wells and you could get rid of the fireplace if you don’t mind using more propane for a furnace and not just cooking.

      Always trade offs… Maybe flip the whole thing around, since one design constraint is the bathroom/loft is by the tow tongue end of the trailer. So no room for a bump out on that side but if the layout was reversed then you could add a little more space that can make it easier to work around the wheel wells… Would just make access through the front door harder while moving but once you have the surround deck that wouldn’t be a issue.

      Though, if a single step is a issue then the multiple steps to get into and out of the house may also be a issue. So may be preferable to do this on a foundation, where allowed, to eliminate any step or just put in ramps…
