    Love the layout, kitchen pantry, screened in porch, and that the house is in the woods.
    Just like in our home, I would have put in an apartment size stove and frig and use that extra space for the pantry. I do canning and make homemade breads/pasta. It needs a movevable island/kitchen table for me to work on.
    And it needs a bathtub.

    Yep.. That is the one! Love this layout and the porch. Great shower and attractive from the outside.

    I want to move in tomorrow. Carol and I have the same request in the bathtub however it looks like one could fit in. Wonder what the cost is.

    I’ve been in this model, and I must say it was very comfortable and livable, besides aesthetically pleasing. I agree with Carol that an apartment-size stove and refrigerator would have been a better option.

    So, where did the extra 8 sq feet come in?

      This one is a 6″ inches longer… 14′ x 28’=392 but 14′ x 28′ 6″ = 399 or 400…

      Park models just have to be 400 Sq Ft or less and that’s based on the interior living space. So they can leverage things like the porch before needing to change things like the trailer chassis to allow for more significant changes…

        Ah, didn’t realise that it had been changed. Was totally aware of the 400 sq ft rule. Now, when is the US going to catch up with the rest of the world and metricate? So much easier to use and measure. Yeah, yeah, I know, never going to happen… 🤐

    summer in a 4o’ park model with two large slide outs and love it – the apartment size stove would be fine but a full size refrigerator is a must since I don’t want to run to the store ( half an hr away) all the time. I have neutral walls (not wood) and find it much easier to hang pictures so dry wall would be fine for me – we have a hide a bed couch in the lr for when company comes or when one of us can’t sleep/sick/snoring so that works for us

    $114,000 is way out of my price range. I thought the idea of tiny houses was so people could finally afford housing and be free of horrible mortgages, but it seems the tiny house movement has jumped on the greed bandwagon. I guess I’ll just be homeless. Every single time an idea comes forth that can truly help people, it is gradually evolves into something that the people can’t afford.

      You are spot on Kathy. The whole idea of a tiny home is to keep things simple, learning to live with a lot less, make it affordable, and cut back the carbon footprint. You are also correct that those who have money have taken away what used to be an outstanding concept. Huge t.v., bathroom, farmhouse sinks, dishwashers, floating shelves, etc., have very little to do with living a life of freedom where a materialistic lifestyle should not be. Isn’t it amazing and very sad how a greed-filled society destroys that which is good. Yes James, I know your responsen already. Personal preference, luxury tiny homes are what some people want. The rich have no idea of how to live a GREAT life without the evils of money and greed.

        No, it’s not just personal preference but the very real fact not everyone has the same needs or can always do it for the same costs because it won’t cost the same everywhere or always even involve the same reasons for costs. So the reality is most of these are not being done by the rich but just regular people making the best of their situation.

        The actual rich go far beyond these with products going as high as over $3 million, for a reality check on where the rich range actually goes up to…

        While the point was never to ignore diversity, for people to conform to something that wouldn’t actually work for them, to ignore all the reasons people want a home in the first place. Just to make other people happy about their choices, even at the cost of suffering and ignoring what’s best for themselves!

        The secret to the movement was always freedom and taking control of one’s own life. Not expecting others to do it for you or have everyone follow the exact same path like they were cogs in a machine and their life didn’t really matter. Real life is far more complicated for any one solution to deal with it all and we have to stop ignoring the simple fact everyone has their own life to deal with… Diversity is not evil, it’s a fact of life!

    Its an affordable price. It’s not about greed whatsoever, construction and material costs are high, it’s a reality designers and builders cannot escape, no pun. To create the needs and wants in a small building takes a lot of thought and passion. The cost of any tiny home in the range of $40,000 to $180,000 is more than affordable geared towards the average and below average incomes, especially in extreme high residential costs.

    How much would it cost to build something like this by todays current material prices? Minue the property. Just the cabin. I did not see any closet space in this cabin. Perhaps I missed it. Thank you.

    Got to say I love this beautiful tiny! Have always been sad that it is totally out of my price range, but it is so well built and absolutely worth the price.
