    I like the screened in porch. This is something that I would insist on in any tiny house, mainly so that insects will be kept out (years of broken nights courtesy of mosquitoes will never be forgotten) and my house cat will get plenty of fresh air without the dangers of being hit by vehicles on the busy road out in front. Otherwise, a nice house but not tiny, or even really small. Sleeping for 7 people yet with a tiny living area that has virtually no seating, certainly none for people to sit around and talk, nor a table and chairs to eat anything cooked in the luxury kitchen unless done in rounds of three or standing up trying to hold a plate in one hand while using a knife and fork with the other 2 with the last holding a glass of water or wine.

    1) 5,000 sq ft is not likely to be correct. Looks like a typo as was pointed out in a FB posting yesterday. No body must be watching the FB postings because the typo still exists.
    2) $120,000 starting price eliminates a good chunk of people who want to live tiny without that kind of an expense. For $120,000 you can get an 80 foot double wide with a lot more space which would certainly be less cramped for 7 people.
    3) That is the biggest refrigerator/freezer I’ve ever seen and I doubt it is actually that size. Most likely about 2/3 less than the photo shows.
    4) Bath is a nice size
    5) Access to the larger loft is by ladder while access to a much smaller loft is by a “staircase” structure? Doesn’t look right though maybe the camera is distorting the images.
    6) Suppose to be a Chef Kitchen yet only two cook tops. It’s over hyping the smallness of the kitchen considerably just as the camera is over hyping the space which is very tight. Not even close to being worth $120,000 which means the unit is also over priced.

    Just my opinion though pictures don’t lie and camera presents a false impression. Not professional at all.

      Bob, look at the 8th photo with the stacked washer and dryer in the same photo as the fridge for scale… It looks like the LG LFXS30796S, which is 30 cu. ft… So it may be as big as it looks…

      While they only mention 1 owner… 7 is just how many can sleep in it but that may be just for overnight guests, like visiting family and doesn’t mean 7 people will be full timing it…

      As for being worth the price… Depends… New Manufactured Houses can actually be this price and higher, especially if there’s any bit of custom work and high end finishing…

      There’s of course cheaper options, both for tiny houses and manufactured houses, but there’s always trade offs…

    Over the years, I’ve become disappointed by how large and boxy tiny houses have become. When Jay Shafer appeared in the 1990s, he had a gorgeous TINY house–about 8×12 with wonderful aesthetics. I saved a picture of his tiny house and still admire it. Now? The “tiny” houses get bigger and bigger. Initially, the idea for many people was to have a mortgage-free home. Also, the idea was to live lighter on the earth. These “tiny” homes are more efficient that traditional ones, I suppose. I wonder how many are truly mortgage free, but perhaps that is not each owner’s goal.
    I’m not criticizing this lady’s home at all, just wondering out loud, so to speak. When I saw this house today, I decided to respond in general to many of the houses I see appear here. I greatly admire Marsha Cowan’s approach to tiny houses; of course, Marsha lives alone. But she really has considered what she wants and needs and builds accordingly.
    My comment is not intended to annoy or hurt anyone.

      Statistically, the ratio of Tiny Home owners who owe a mortgage is the reverse of big homes… Basically less than a third but the turn around times are far less with most managing to pay it off in less than ten years or even under 5 years…

      This compares to big home owners who over 2/3rd’s owe a mortgage with closer to 30 year or longer periods and over 7% owe so much that they are in constant threat of defaulting…

      While the more boxy designs are to maximize usable space, especially for lofts. Though, there are ways to avoid having them look too boxy… Speaking of Jay Shafer, some of Tumbleweeds designs were boxy but used architectural details to give the appearance of a more steep pitched roof line… Other builders like Incredible Tiny Homes calls it a reverse gable roof… Along with other methods but these add to labor and thus increase costs, which is why they’re not always utilized and often people have to prioritize what’s functionally more practical versus what they would rather have it look like…

      Mind, on the increasing size that more and more families are going tiny and so they’re pushing designs that can accommodate more people… Many of the earlier designs were for single occupants…

      Though, modern Tiny Houses go back more than several decades and designs are actually very diverse. There’s just a popularized segment that gets reported on more because of the present popularity with more nomadic lifestyles but that forces designs around what the road legal limits require and you generally have to go beyond those to really have free reign on possible designs…

      While goals of the owners do vary as well as what motivates them… But it’s also a matter of what choices and options are available as everyone’s situation can be significantly different as well and what’s practical for someone won’t always be the same as someone else… So there aren’t really any standards that apply to all equally and thus should be judged case by case…

    Love everything about this house except the price tag. I just wished they sold the blue prints or even just game me the dimension of the rooms so I could have some one make them for me. I have property but only allowed to build on a foundation which is fine because I don’t plan on moving any time soon. But I am on a budget and have people willing to help me build just wished they would give me something on the measurements.

    If you are going to build a home that large… why bother to put it on a trailer at all? After all… how often or how many times are you going to move it? Most likely, it will be moved to one place… set up and just stay in that one place. Therefore, you would have been better off to just build this house a little wider and put it on a concrete slab. You would have had a wider house and it would have cost less and would have been easier to build. I think a lot of people hung up on this “tiny house ” fad do not really think things through carefully before jumping into it.

    To have had this option when my kids were small would have been life changing. Compare the price of this to any regular house that could comfortably fit several children and you will know it’s a steal.

    I have to say that looking at that price tag from the perspective of living in a State where finding a place to live for under $500,000 is impossible, it looks pretty affordable. Of course, there is always the cost of renting a space, which is largely unregulated, so it does take it back into the realm of not being as affordable as we had hoped. And shouldn’t we have all gotten used to a newsletter about tiny houses has evolved into one that also shows tiny houses that are larger than a postage stamp? Surely there are more important things to be concerned about. As far as this particular tiny house is concerned, there are so many attributes and it deserves praise, for sure. There are things that many of us would change, of course. How about a more pleasing exterior color combination? Did they grab paint colors off of the reject pile in order to save money? Ahahahahaha Really, it leaves much to be desired. That cooktop arrangement is odd. It would have been better to just put in a range so the counter didn’t look so awkward. Whoever decided that alternating stairs was a good idea was not thinking very straight or even logically. First of all, it prevents full utilization of under the stairs storage and second, can you imagine trying to negotiate those in the middle of the night in an emergency? If you frantically start off on the wrong foot, you would hit the floor with quite a thud! They may be novel but they are neither efficient nor safe. Stop using them! The upstairs would require you to walk bent over so I would prefer you just skip having an upstairs at all…though some will like it and not find it a problem…and have a bedroom downstairs. Or just have a very open space with a Murphy Bed. For me the loft would only be good for storage so wouldn’t have to be that large. Give me a good kitchen and bathroom and leave the rest of it open. Simple and less expensive. And kudos to those who find this one perfect for their needs! But do rethink those stairs. I would hate for you to be injured! 😉

    Like the main floor. Lovely kitchen and for those who want to entertain or have food close at hand, the fridge is a full sized. Washer and dryer are great, especially if you’re having the extended family over in the summer.

    the loft areas can also be used for storage for those of us who want to take it all with us.

    Think the price is reasonable given the finishes and build. Yes, you may be able to purchase other styles/types of homes for a similar price, but this is on wheels, full sized appliances, quartz or marble counter top.

    IF you are in a warm climate, the screened porch is great for dining….. that way you can have guests, family over and sit down and enjoy a meal. Maybe, if you are in a cold climate, the living room could be shifted around and allow table and chairs to fit in.

      I still think there are lots of times of the year, say in New England, where you could enjoy it. Often in warmer places, it’s too hot in the summer just like it’s too cold in the winter in New Hampshire. I love the no-bugs!

    I would want some sort of decorative safety feature over the fridge going to the bedroom. The hand railing for the stairs is great but the open space above the refrigerator could be a hazard for children or older adults. Safety is always on my mind since I’m an older senior. Loved the overall looks and the screened porch.
