    How much is this tiny house and could it be modified just a little. Is the fireplace gas or wood?

      Approximate pricing is on their website but as custom builds prices will vary… The fireplace is gas, you generally won’t see wood fireplaces in a Park Model…

    Very nicely done! I love the roomy living area and the materials used throughout are appealing. There is one thing that seems to be a common situation in most tiny homes and that is not enough counter space in the kitchen. I have seen some where the kitchen is quite roomy and I would urge designers in general to make an effort to provide as much counter space as possible. Overall I would say this is beautifully done.

    So I’m confused. What do the stairs lead to if the master bedroom is located on the main floor? And if the master is at the top of the stairs, what is under it? From the drawing, it would appear that the stairs only lead to a closet but this doesn’t make sense to me.

    Very pretty. I especially love that built-in bed/reading spot. The loft that isn’t quite a loft seems to be a great compromise with it’s more manageable staircase over a ladder. I’d probably stay downstairs on the built-in though, I’d very likely fall asleep there with my book anyway! I would definitely take advantage of the movable island too!

    From what I can see — I really like it — light, bright and contemporary — seems to have a good amount of cabinets and storage spaces?? Saw the washing machine but wondered where the dryer was?
    Otherwise — very, very nice!!

      February 23, 2021, 11:34 pm

      I wonder if it’s one of those washer-dryer combos. I’ve seen them featured in smaller tiny houses. I wonder if they work well. (There’s also the option of using a clothesline, if you live in a very mild climate, as I do.)

      • Avatar James D.
        February 23, 2021, 11:48 pm

        Yes, it’s a combo washer/dryer… They work but not everyone would consider them ideal because they can’t handle as large loads and sequential washing and drying is a much longer process. While the type of drying it uses can seem to be insufficient at times… A bit of learning curve if you’ve never used one before but if you’re needs are small and you can adapt to the optimal way to use them then they can work well…

  • February 23, 2021, 10:09 pm

    Some nice points, I like the color of the cabinets….However, it’s NOT a great seniors layout for me….In that 400 sqft, I usually get a Half Bath….And I am thinking for the stated price on the home page I can get four of my design if purchased together as a package…I seem to be unreasonable to some but WHO are we building for? I feel there is probably a market for $100 Sqft houses at a fifty to one ratio than the $390 per sqft that is going to require special financing or cash…We have low-income and homeless to consider in ALL our future home planning if we are going to progress abs a nation…Where we should be looking is how to utilize more HEMP in our future small homes. Insulation, flooring, wallboard/Shiplap type systems and even SIPES that are 100% Hemp and Bamboo.

      You have some valid points, however not all Seniors are low income and are willing to paying more. Not all tiny houses have to be low cost. This would make a wonderful home for people wanting a little more style or possibly a second home.
      It’s nice to see all these options.

    • Avatar Sandra
      February 24, 2021, 10:34 am

      I agree we should or could be using more hemp, solar, wind, nature and have all the insulation possible for seniors. The more it costs to maintain the home on a monthly basis is very important. Most seniors whether they have money or not R frugal because they know what their money will afford. Thank you for letting me post my view

    The fireplace is nice but I think a coat/storage closet would be more useful and where exactly is that daybed? It looks like there is a door next to it so it isn’t in the loft so it isn’t shown on the main floor unless I’m not reading the plans correctly – is the movable island the eating area? I think the beams exposed in the kitchen could be lightened in color (gray or white) to make the space seem larger – I like the number of windows and the bathroom/wet room – I’m waiting for one with a separate bathroom/toilet room though.

    • Avatar Alison
      February 24, 2021, 12:25 pm

      I also couldn’t figure out where the daybed is, even after going to the manufacturer’s website. I suspect that the floor plan shown above is not exactly the one shown in the nice photos. At least the bedroom furniture is different, and maybe the window and door placement. Not sure. They have several options and will customize plans, too.

      • Avatar James D.
        February 24, 2021, 1:54 pm

        It’s accurate, just doesn’t show layers for the different levels, the daybed is in the room in the back right corner adjacent to the bathroom, on the main level… Note, the entrance to the room is shown in the plans directly opposite the fridge and just before the bathroom door… and you can see from the bathroom photos that it doesn’t extend past the door opening to the right and thus only takes up less than half of the width of the structure… So that whole right back corner area is another room…

        Park models of this type are often coupled with a surround deck. So they often have multiple exterior doors for ease of access, which in this case puts one right by the daybed that you can use like a private entrance…

        There’s two other versions of this model series shown on their website that shows some of the variations that are possible when customizing the model, as well as two other model series in their Park Model offerings…

        Note, though, while they will customize, they do not sell plans…

          February 24, 2021, 5:39 pm

          James, are you saying that the room that shows a queen-sized bed in the floor plan diagram is furnished with a daybed in the photographs? That’s my take, but the windows and door are still not identical. Well, the details don’t really matter that much, as I’m not about to move in. But overall, it is a nice design.

      • Avatar James D.
        February 24, 2021, 8:07 pm

        Not quite, just two things to understand about the diagram… One is it’s the default layout but the photos are of a custom built model that changes have been made to the layout. Two, it’s a flattened image of both levels. So the loft details are covering up the main level details that’s directly below it. Thus the diagram only shows the interior door to enter the corner room from the kitchen but everything else is covered by the loft details, which is what I meant when I said it was not layered. It’s a simple overhead look of the layout that is like having the ceiling removed to look down, the loft still blocks your view of what’s below it… While the custom version of the layout will of course have some differences from the default layout, like 2 additional exterior doors in this model, but the basic floor plan is the same otherwise…

        If you go to their website and look up this model series, you’ll see the diagram but also three separate galleries below it to the three different custom models they’ve built “recently”, this model being the one to the left titled “Foothills Tiny”… Each of the three were customized differently and there’s a few more photos in those galleries than shown here… Like it shows the daybed storage with some of the drawers pulled out, a sitting chair across from the day bed and a closet that occupies the space directly below the stairs, along with a few other details for the rest of the layout, which may help visualize the layout better…

    To Alison re my comment on the single washing machine — this doesn’t appear to be a stacked washer/dryer combo — I have one & it is much taller (maybe there is some new combo machine out there but I’m not aware of it. And YES! Always a good opportunity to hang the items outside — if — if you live in a warm climate or have an overhang that covers the clothesline in the event of rain. Otherwise, like this little charmer!!!

    • Avatar Alison
      February 24, 2021, 12:21 pm

      Vee, I meant the kind of washer-dryer combo that is all in one box, so to speak. Yes, they are out there, and James made a comment about them above. I did a search and read some reviews. They take a long, long time to process a load through the entire wash-then-dry cycle. Maybe the technology will improve over time.
      I do like this little house.

        Thanks much for the news that there is a new combo washer-dryer out there for tiny homes, as I was truly curious. It makes sense that residing in a tiny home one would probably not have tons of laundry to do so a small unit, as I guess it is — would work very well indeed. If not patience is surely needed to get thru the process. Works fine for many I am sure!!

          It’s not actually new, they’ve been around for more than a decade now. Just more popular in Europe and Asia than in the states. Often also called a condo washer dryer due to the limited amount of space it takes up.

          They are very energy efficient, they use about 50% less water than traditional washing machines and nearly 70% less electricity. Everything just has trade offs… Depending on the size of the load, an all in one washer dryer typically takes two to three hours to wash and dry laundry, sometimes longer, which you are usually more limited in capacity than a similar size washer because the same space also has to accommodate the drying process that normally requires more space than the washer for the air flow needed to dry the cloths.

          Thus the learning curve, as you have to get used to the proper amount of cloths to put into it. Along with getting used to the type of evaporation drying it uses that can leave the cloths feeling cool, which can make people think the cloths are still wet even when dry. They also tend to be vent-less, so can have some humidity issues for the interior of the house.

          The space saving and energy efficiency, though, makes them very popular option for Tiny houses in the states but those with lots of cloths or families still tend to go with the more traditional dual machine or stacked combo options.

          While residential laundry machine technology has been advancing. So other options are also getting more energy efficient and even dual units can come in smaller sizes to better fit smaller spaces. Additionally, it is possible to set up units for exterior use and free up interior space that way as well, in climates that’s convenient…

          There’s also more basic portable washing machine options if you really want to save space and only have very small washing needs…

    James, not condo but combo washer and dryer.
    I am wondering there is no pic showing this special custom model from the outside. On theit website I didn’t find it .
    I don’t know how you can cook smooth in this kitchen arrangement. The fridge is far away from the sink and the cooktop in between. It follows in no means a workflow when preparing meals not for left and not for right handler.

    • Avatar James D.
      March 8, 2021, 5:47 pm

      Yes and no Michael, like I said, they also go by condo washer. Products aren’t always referred to only by their official name or description, and people tend to call things by generic terms they associate with it regardless of whether it’s what they’re actually called officially.

      While there are many different types of workflows for a kitchen, not everyone prefers the same layout or arrangement. So you won’t always see a layout that you may prefer or think usable but it is to someone else. Especially, when the layout is chosen by the owner and it was customized for them…

      This model is an example of the Bellevue model series on their site and if you go by that you’ll see a drawing of the default exterior and one, the Transitional, of the three galleries of the three differently customized versions they’ve done has photos of the exterior that you can compare to the drawing to get an idea of how differently they can customize it…
