    Wow! This is the Best of the Best!!!

  • Kendra Hillard July 18, 2016, 4:57 pm

    Wow! I LOVE this layout! Beautiful home!

  • ROSEE July 18, 2016, 5:14 pm

    WOW! me too!
    Funny how everything looks so big on the inside, while it looks tiny from the outside.
    Quite a showcase! I like the clean and tidy set-up, making it fresh and airy.

  • Sondra July 18, 2016, 5:20 pm

    Hmmm I didn’t see dimensions but looks to be wider then a tiny house on wheels. Looks beautiful love the look and design inside and outside.

    • Michael L July 18, 2016, 8:22 pm

      Sondra… I went to their website. It’s a Park Model home… a very beautiful and a very expensive one for my budget. When you read about the finishes, it’s first class all the way. The resort where these are placed is beautiful! If I win the Lotto or dear ole Aunt Tilly remembers me in the will, I’ll be hunting one of these down!

      • Sondra July 19, 2016, 12:39 pm

        I’m hoping Aunt Tilly thinks of me too Michael ;) I like high end finishes for sure ! Wish my wallet agreed ha

    • Hunter-grace July 21, 2016, 7:45 pm

      Sondra, the site says: approx 14 wide x 31 feet long and a loft.

  • Deb D July 18, 2016, 5:42 pm

    I love everything about this, from the open floorplan, to the bright and airy look, to the stairs with a rail! Absolutely beautiful!

  • Ribert July 18, 2016, 5:51 pm

    Yes nice home. But the cost is to high. Tiny homes were about saving money on living and the cost to build it. They are getting out of hand.

    • Eric August 2, 2016, 10:48 pm

      Not necessarily. While that may have been the impetus at the start, tiny homes became about… well tiny homes. Not necessarily about how much they cost.

      Having said that I’m sure building it yourself would cut the cost dramatically. That’s what the Tiny Home movement started from, until the greedy robber baron types started to see the big bucks. And NO, not all commercial Tiny Home builders are greedy robber baron types. But there are some out there.

      • Lantz August 3, 2016, 12:17 am

        It’s all about what you can afford to DIY or pay another to do. That’s what I like about the THOW because you can build it to your taste. Come up with an efficient design that meets your needs and if you’re on a budget, use the best materials on the trailer, shell and exterior. Then use budget materials inside which you can already remodel/upgrade later.
        One of the best ways to learn out to build is become your own contractor. Find experts who will use you as their labor. If you’ve got a good head on your shoulder and willing to learn it’s great fun.

  • Ruth July 18, 2016, 7:45 pm

    How much does this cost?? What is the total square feet and dimensions?

  • Michael L July 18, 2016, 8:11 pm

    It is a beautiful home. But I am so tired of the whining about what the tiny house movement is “supposed” to be. It’s what people WANT it to be! For some its the option of building their own home as economically as possible… maybe a DIY with repurposed materials. And for others it might be more of a home like this… beautiful, well planned and still not what a conventional home might cost.

    • Laura July 29, 2016, 6:20 am

      Michael L, well said. I agree with you. Tiny is relative when you consider what a person is downsizing from. Not everyone wants or can live in a closet sized home. The really small homes seem great for the young and I realize there are more mature people that like them too. I figure if you can afford it and want all the bells and whistles go for it. Give those that have downsized credit for doing so. At least they’re not living in a McMansion. But you know what? If they do what business is it of mine or anyone elses?

    • Rev August 3, 2016, 5:51 am

      Michael l:
      Agreed. Who makes the rules? We make the rules!

      Folks, enough with the ‘victims’ thinking. “I can’t because I’m too old, too young, too poor, too disabled, too many parakeets.” Can you imagine believing in your skills and creativity?

      Today at the grocery, a morbidly obese woman in a powered wheelchair asked me to hand her a jumbo jug of red licorice because “…it’s too heavy…” Cripes! Could she maybe see a cause and effect here! Garbage in, garbage thinking, garbage life. [suddenly remembering to breathe]

  • Cynthia Jane Taylor July 18, 2016, 8:56 pm

    I have looked at a lot of tiny houses online and this one nailed it. Lots of light, open spaces, a bathtub to stretch out in. There must be a washer dryer some where I did not see it. Have to go off grid with solar, wind and a Keshe free energy system and rain water collection and water condensation device to capture moisture overnight.

  • Rev July 18, 2016, 9:36 pm

    We absolutely love “…an upstairs loft…”!

    • Eric August 2, 2016, 10:51 pm

      In a tiny home, aren’t all lofts upstairs? Stairs are stairs. Ladders are stairs. See… they are all upstairs. ; )

  • Canyon MAn July 18, 2016, 10:00 pm

    I know many see tiny homes as an inexpensive way for less fortunate or those who want a way to live to put money somewhere besides a large home.
    But I am excited to see something like this that more well to do home buyers or second home buyers will show interest in. A smaller footprint is usually good for the environment also. Living in the Southwest where we see many homes only lived in a few months or even a few weeks I prefer to see a home on this order for a second home.

  • Juli July 18, 2016, 10:08 pm

    Gorgeous, but for $143K it should be!

    • Hunter-grace July 21, 2016, 7:47 pm

      it should make you breakfast and feed you for that much :)

      • Eric August 2, 2016, 10:52 pm

        Oh come on!!! If it did that I’d have nothing to do for the rest of the day.

  • Kim Pratt July 18, 2016, 10:41 pm

    This is nicely done. A main floor bedroom for the adults, and the loft looks like it is ready for some young children. It is not to small for a Park Model, but not to big either. It would be less expensive than a large home, and looks like it would be easier and not take too much to keep clean and nice. I love the décor and open floor concept. I would not need any house that is bigger. Just a carport or a garage for the car. I want just enough space to not feel to cramped but not too much space to feel overwhelmed (especially with big bills). I also like the idea of using solar panels. I have seen tinting materials for your home windows, including a mirrored ones, for privacy, but let just the light in (not the ultra-violet and other harmful rays). That will also help keep it cool in the summer.

    An electric fireplace (incorporated with an entertainment center would be could use of space), in the winter, if you are in a colder climate. (No wood to cut collect or trees to cut down), or flue to open and you don’t have to clean it. I used to have a wood burning fireplace, and didn’t use it a lot because it was such a hassle to keep clean.

    This is really a nice place to live.

  • Susanne July 19, 2016, 10:40 am

    It’s lovely!!! But 143,000?!?! Obviously if it was sitting elsewhere the price could be reduced but I’d like to know how much…. 400sqft is so practical for someone like myself with family members who refuse to do 200 or less, but it’s still downsizing , clearly, without being cramped and allows for visiting relatives. But not at 143,000.

    • Sondra July 19, 2016, 12:34 pm

      400sqft in Paris ? about $600k and that’s probably a dump ;) It’s all relevant, you can live in Ecuador on the beach for $200k or even less, in So California ? $7-$25 million. A tiny house for $143K ? unheard of here, I’d be happy to own such a beautiful house. Just trying to buy some property, that’ll be $250k to $350k for an acre.

  • Shannon July 19, 2016, 12:11 pm

    They do have park models as big as this one that you can build for 50,000.00 or so. That are still very nice like this.

  • Nan Brinson August 2, 2016, 6:18 pm

    Fantastic design! Do you know the paint color and brand for the kitchen cabinets?

  • Victoria August 2, 2016, 7:49 pm

    Great design and finishes as well as the furnishing. However, this little gem is almost one thousand dollars per square foot, albeit one buys into a “community” with other perks. Still,ma little rich for my blood.

  • ZACHARY E. MOHRMANN August 2, 2016, 7:52 pm

    As soon as I got the first look at it’s interior, I knew it was expensive, way over the top of what I would have believed this group would have been looking for… I just don’t get it, I thought we were looking at affordable houses, houses that people who wanted to get rid of their mortgage and live the tiny house lifestyle…. It makes no sense, we have a double standard here…!

    • Eric August 2, 2016, 11:00 pm

      No Zachary… “we” don’t have double standards here. We have variety. You know, the spice of life? We have lots of affordable houses for some people (try convincing a homeless person most of these are affordable to them), we have more upscale for others, and we even have over the top for those who are interested.

      If you have a problem with what is on here, either don’t visit anymore (and I for one would be sad to see you go as you do contribute to discussions in general positively) or take your concerns to Alex privately. He does have an email address you know.

      • ZACHARY E. MOHRMANN August 3, 2016, 8:08 pm

        I will continue to make comment as much as I care to with out your consent, that’s for sure….! As I don’t believe my comment was wrong or inflammatory in any way, nor causing harm to anyone… And who made you moderator here anyway…!

        • Judy August 5, 2016, 7:33 pm

          Well, Zachary, aren’t you the center of your world. I enjoy seeing all that’s available even if it is pricey. Each one has an idea that could be utilized in a less costly build. Widen your horizons and see possibilities, if it’s not your cup of tea, that’s okay, it may be someone else’s.

  • jm August 3, 2016, 5:16 am

    Affordable housing is becoming a problem again. Last time it was addressed all the crooks came out and we had a housing collapse. Learning all the skills to build your own is too daunting for most. But maybe there could be other ways of providing sweat equity in exchange for housing. How about programs where one can work benefiting society in some way while getting a reduced mortgage? (With conditions of course) Or how about working for a while in some pre-fab builder’s factory doing only one easily learned task (instead of them all) in exchange for a reduced price on your own affordable/tiny home? This is going to have to be addressed soon. Tiny only means tiny. It doesn’t mean cheap.

  • Large Marge August 3, 2016, 6:04 am

    Wow… ‘surround-sound’ clerestory windows. Thumbs up!

    We like a tiny house because it doesn’t need “an entertainment center”. If we want to be entertained, we go outside. Tiny house, big world!

  • Zinia August 3, 2016, 9:16 am

    Love the layout of this tiny house!! It shows you what you can have more or less depending on your taste and budget. If you can afford to have someone build it great, or just have someone build the shell and you can then finish the inside to your pleasing. Its all about creativity and taste, it can be as expensive as you want it to be or as economical as your budget ! With the layout and plans your the boss :-)

  • Lisa Sims August 3, 2016, 9:52 am

    WOW, this is beautiful. Are there any tiny house builders in Georgia?

  • Nancy August 5, 2016, 9:10 am

    Perfect for my retirement! :)

  • Melissa August 5, 2016, 9:57 am

    The 1st floor bedroom, the stairs with railing to a loft you can move around in, a full bathroom, the abundance of natural light, great looking kitchen, storage, outside living space, even the color scheme. There is so much I love about this house! I found “the one “. ♡

  • David August 5, 2016, 12:34 pm

    I want this. I hope there is a stacking w/d. I am thinking the master bedroom is on the first floor.

  • Melissa Curit August 5, 2016, 10:44 pm

    Love this one. Perfect!

  • Gloria M Moran August 6, 2016, 2:34 pm

    This is one of the best I have seen. It fits all my needs. This is a saver for when I’m ready, hopefully soon.

  • Judy August 6, 2016, 3:41 pm

    I’d like to thank Alex for the varied examples of THOWs that are out there. Some may be pricey but that’s also good to know. There are those that find reason to complain that Tiny House Talk is veering away from some objective, but that’s nonsense. This site is evolving to fit everyone’s needs and interests, not that of a set few. I’ve enjoyed all the showings as have many visitors. Thanks, Alex.

    • Laura August 6, 2016, 9:45 pm

      Thanks Judy. Well said.

    • Liz Mandell August 30, 2016, 9:37 pm

      They are beautiful. I agree with another who replied that prices seem to be rising. I am looking to tiny houses to down price dramatically. I am coming off of a 30 year mortgage. Retired & disabled, I don’t want to spend my last years on house loan. Idea is to size down. First prices I checked out were reasonable. Now not so. If this continues, my dream is going out the window fast. Please step back and reassess. Many want and need this but living on SS will not allow us to pay the steep prices……money is much, much less than work days.
