How adorable! Love the bedroom on the main floor. If you live alone you can use the loft for storage. I would.
I could not sleep with the a/c hitting my face all night, I would be with a constant head congestion and a stuffy nose. I don’t get why would they place it right above the bed.
Like Brenda pointed out, the direction of the fan doesn’t have to be directed at you and that’s one of the reasons the interior walls aren’t all the way up to the ceiling to allow air flow to the rest of the home and typically the mini-split air flow will be pointed that way…
Ideally, mini-splits should be placed at either end of the home to allow air to flow throughout the interior to condition the whole space. Multiple units are used when that is interrupted and you need separate zones to be conditioned separately or it’s just a big home and needs separate zones.
While placement has to be at a certain height and have clear line of sight to the other end of the structure for the conditioned air to travel but if one end has a bathroom and there isn’t space to put it in a loft then it typically has to be on the other side and by whatever is in that corner.
Unless they put it on the side wall but then it won’t be able to condition the home as efficiently or you’ll need multiple units, which increases cost.
I have stayed in three Airbnb tiny homes thus far, the first one had the mini-split just like the one in this tiny home. I moved the vents straight toward the other side of the room and away from me but because of the small space all it did was hit the front bedroom wall and back to the bed. The other two had the mini-split in the center of the tiny house, one had it over the entrance door and the other right above the kitchen. Those locations worked perfectly, the entire home was kept at a perfect temperature without issues. I am looking at tiny homes for a home base and I will choose the center mini-split location based on what I experienced.
Fair enough, it can depend on the size of the THOW. Most Mini-Splits are rated for a slightly larger space and can be overkill for the smaller THOWs, especially when well insulated, which makes placement less of an issue to efficiently heat or cool the whole space.
While some people just use fans to help circulate the air or even add ducts for closed off rooms.
So great to hear your experience!
This is about ALL tiny houses etc. A couple of things that don’t seem to be addressed is
A) Is there room to extend both your elbows (like making a pony tail etc) in front of the mirror?
B) If there is a loft is there a way to carry items up if using it for storage? If you are single w/no help (I’m a Senior) is there a way? A loft provides much needed storage.
C) Is there room on each side of the toilet that allows for a walker and/or assist bars? Don’t think accidents don’t happen to younger ppl. My daughter badly injured her ankle (break, torn tendons etc) & a couple of years later my niece did the same but both ankles.
Didn’t know where else to post this, sorry
Your comment sparked an idea regarding the difficulty of getting boxes, etc. up to the loft. Even for younger folks, climbing a ladder while holding a box would be precarious. I am wondering if there is a way…I’m sure some clever designer can think of something…to put in a dumb waiter to do the lifting and then you can move the box around once it is up in the loft? I have seen storage systems in garages that have a “lift” and it doesn’t really take up any space. Something to consider, especially since people are putting THOW or park models in back yards for aging but independent minded parents. I think it will end up being a pretty big market especially if you design specifically for that situation. This is a pretty cute tiny house and could work well with just a few changes…I agree with the mini split in the bedroom not being ideal. We have them throughout our regular house and they are actually pretty powerful. Get the right size and it will heat and cool the entire space. We love ours but not to blow directly on the bed. Personally, I’d like to see a bit of length added on to this tiny house so the kitchen could be just a bit bigger and with regular upper cupboards. Open shelves are simply not as useful. Doors hide the inevitable messy look and who wants to see canned goods, boxes of cereal or spices anyway…even if they are well organized? Doors make for a cleaner appearance, for sure. Overall a nice tiny house but I hope the designers will consider the suggestions offered by those who will actually use them. We don’t mean to criticize but do want to convey needs. Thanks for sharing.
Regarding the mini-split, there may be a reason as far as installation that they used the bedroom, or for cold or hot regions, may be good to have it where it is. I have one, and it blows on me, so I redirect the air flow by moving the vents towards the ceiling and it keeps my room toasty warm without annoying me. In the living room, I redirect it towards the floor, and the dogs LOVE the feel of the hot air on them. Never had to use the air conditioning in Oregon, but I am sure that would work the same.
Regarding the queen size bed in that tiny space, obviously the (male?) designer never had to make a bed. I would have chosen a double. Preferable to sleep closer to my partner and be able to make the bed without being a gymnast. Or have a bed so tight against the wall that you cannot get up without disturbing the person beside you. Been there, done that.
It may not be for a senior buyer, which eliminates many shoppers: the bed size, the stairs to the loft, the height of the washer/dryer, and the lack of table space while in bed. Other than that, it is a lovely home and would work well for many people as is. Just an observation from a life long RVer and tiny home owner.
Well, it’s typically “make it fit” clients that decide the layout, along with the limits of the budget they have to work with…
There’s options like putting the bed on a lift system that can tilt it out so you can easily make the bed… Along with ways to put a closet higher up on the wall and have it on a pull down system so it’s out of the way when you don’t need it and can be pulled down for easy reach when you do, but the additional cost usually makes the client accept the compromised usage instead… Add, if they don’t minimize their stuff that much then things can tend to get crammed together to prioritize the storage space, etc. Especially, with how virtually all the storage spaces have to be within the living space with tiny houses…
Mind, despite most Tiny Houses being custom built, don’t get moved much more than 1-3 times, and can stay in one spot for years. Most are still being built within the road legal size limits because most people want to avoid the need to get a moving permit but if they just go a little wider then issues like the bed butted up against a wall can be avoided and they can still get their closets, etc.
Options like slide outs could be a compromise but they tend to be cost prohibitive for Tiny Houses, and not ideal for something that will be lived in long term and less worth it for something that won’t be moved often…
Keeping it road legal is also a limiting factor on the placement of the mini-split as that usually means it has to be placed on either far end and running the coolant, etc. lines along the walls to place it at a different location is not ideal for various reasons… So client choices just usually limits what the builders can do for them…
I LOVE almost everything about this home!!! It’s got some great features! Love the hidden bed downstairs with closet!!! And the Kitchen & bath. The things I would change is a small oven under the hotplate. Lots of storage is important, but most people want a oven. You could put another cabinet where the open shelves are. I would want a mini drawer style dishwasher too. A mini wood stove on a pedestal by the table/door would be nice, a Yacht model like a Halibut. A 24′ should be plenty big enough for these things. I would have a L shaped couch with storage under too.
It would also be fun to put a sailboat waterproof sunroof/door in the loft, so you could lift it back. And sit in the loft on cushions & look out. I really like this design though.
We will be getting one next year. Mortgage is paid off & just a few more things for the farm & we can retire. Will definitely consider this! 😉
This is a very nice tiny house–pretty, organized, sufficient. I see only one small detail that I would do differently; there really needs to be a mirror over the bathroom sink. Placing the window on the side, and a medicine cabinet with a mirror (or just a mirror) over the sink would make that beautiful bathroom really functional, and it would keep you from hitting your arm on the cabinet sticking out into your prep area where you will be raising and lowering your arms a lot. I’m just saying. . .
A great plan, good execution, and layout. Be a good bargain at $100 sqft….Even at the $125 sqft level it would be a fair bargain for a single person or seniors…Anything above that kind of money you can start buying $500 Park Model RVs and sprinkle them all across the country to just drive to…Any time someone pays more than $150 sqft for a tiny home they are not living the frugal lifestyle “Tiny” infers…IMHO….
The problem with the washer/dryer being up that high, many high deprived people, like myself, can’t see or reach the controls. Wish more people were mindful of that. The problem with a latter, is you have to hold, and no hands free to put stuff up in the loft, or down from the loft. Cute house, I do like the corner shower.
Good points to consider, not everyone is average height but that’s one of the benefits of custom building that everything can be optimized for the owner and their specific needs and preferences. Along with being one of the reasons most tiny houses are custom built for their owner or DIY’ed…
While there are work around solutions for things like accessing the controls of the washing machine. Newer “Smart” machines offer the option to use a remote control, some even have an app to provide that control right from your smartphone, and this applies to other appliances like ovens, etc. as well that can make them much more convenient and usable…
Alternatively, a bump out could provide just enough room to place the washing machine at a more convenient height and free up that corner for more storage. Among other ways the layout could be tweaked…
