    i commend the effort and the creative thinking….
    i like the smaller loft after all it is just for sleeping…..i also like the idea of the steps and using the side of it as closet and storage space…..i like the bathroom where it is and its a decent size with a sink……
    space across the stairs is wasted…could be another closet or laundry…..
    the layout is better than most fancy tiny houses though…..

    • Sephranilla January 28, 2014, 2:36 pm

      I also think the landing to the steps looks qustionable. Steps are kind of neat idea i’ve seen them in done loft conversions in the UK but personally I don’t like using them. It does look nice though. The support to the landing doesnt look like much plus the think board looks like it could easily crack after some time. Nice ideas but poorly executed I think.

    There are many things I like about this tiny house yet agree with most of the critics too. My tiny curtains would look great at some or all of the windows and make it look a lot more “homey”. My Tiny curtains would look great too at the under counter where the ones he has look like stiff plastic.
    I have a rough built clothes closet (doubles as a water closet) and was worried about snags on clothing, but didn’t want to spend lots of money on the inside, so I lined it with a Blanket! Looks really greats and makes for a soft environment ! I use one of my tiny house rag rugs for the floor and it comes right out and into the wash machine if it gets dirty!

  • Princess Mom January 28, 2014, 7:27 pm

    I really like the overhead light fixture and live-edge wood dining table! I agree the shower is a problem, however.

  • Georgia January 28, 2014, 7:43 pm

    Wow, so many mean comments! I like this house a lot. The windows are not haphazard. They may not look symmetrical, but I can see how much thought went into their placement. Personally I appreciate this layout over houses that look symmetrical on the outside, but end up being less functional on the inside. It’s impressive that this house is so tiny, yet includes space for every kind of activity (work, eat, lounge, cook, sleep) AND still has plenty of storage space. I’m also inspired by your use of less expensive materials to create something that is still aesthetically pleasing and relatively affordable.

    • Robin March 28, 2017, 11:15 am

      I agree with Georgia. I like this tiny house a lot. It would be the one I would choose if I was buying now. I wouldn’t mind making some upgrades to shower. I am older so those stairs scare me a little but again easy to retro fit. You wouldn’t loose any storage. I hope not to need storage at all when I finally move into a tiny house. Just take a couple of days of clothing, food, the current book I am reading my lap top and hobbie board and I will be good to go. I would like to see more of the simplified tiny homes in the future.

  • 2BarA January 28, 2014, 9:37 pm

    I like the layout but the whole house looks rough and unfinished. There is no
    place to sit. I do not like the staircase and the loft is small and stark. It
    appears that the bathroom basin drains through a small copper pipe into the shower stall. I would prefer a container for grey water under the basin. Too
    many pictures of the exterior and none of the toilet. Way overpriced IMHO.

    • WillPowers January 29, 2014, 1:56 am

      Don’t buy the house, 2BarA. Leave it for someone who appreciates it’s elegant quirky eclectic ingenuity. Find something you like, is there is any such thing. Better yet, build your own & post it here for the rest of us to pick apart.

      • Joni April 15, 2014, 9:07 pm

        I understand your upset. But that is what this is for HONEST feedback. These people are not trying to hurt the guys feelings but give him honest feedback. These are the people he needs to reach to sell. He can learn by what people are looking for. He may sell this but it would not be to this kind of person. Most people will want more for the money. My son works has a carpenter and he has never made 35 dollars an hour. That is what one said. I wouldn’t pay that kind of money to build. And my son does an awesome job. I am planning on building my own. I have no problem with used wood. But I still want it in great shape and not look like it has mold on it or did. Just keep that in mind. This is what the comments is for. He will get honest feedback. Otherwise what good does it do.

    • Angel January 29, 2014, 2:56 pm

      If you’d read more about the house on the link, you’d see that the builder didn’t put in a toilet, couch or a heat source because they are individual choices that everyone makes a little differently. Those would be up to the buyer, and the builder would install them. And I don’t understand the comments here about the house being ‘unfinished’ looking. Nobody lives in this house people, and the builder didn’t buy out pier 1 imports to stage some cheesy illusion. If this exact same house were put up once someone lived in it and made it the gorgeous home that it has all the ability to be, I imagine most of you would be singing a different tune.

      I admire this builder for being able to create a house that looks unique and beautiful and yet still have used materials inexpensive enough to put on the market for a fair price. Well, a fair price in the retail tiny house world, which we should all know by now is so expensive mostly because if the sheer time involved in actually building one. They are self expressive, liveable works of art created step by step by each builder, not mass manufactured plastic RVs.

      • Kat January 29, 2014, 7:55 pm

        I agree with you Angel and WillPowers. I like seeing some tiny homes without all the personal stuff. (Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t) I want to imagine my junk in there. While I do think those stairs are great, I wonder about the sturdiness. Other than that..I’m in love. This “empty, unstaged” home lets me put myself in it… This is the design I love, single pitch, loft, kitchen on one end…blah blah…WINDOWS. I love the rustic/industrial look. Once I get my stuff in there and make it mine…I’ll take pictures….haha (I Wish it were going to be mine.) This place has so many ways it can go… add some color, keep it simple, more rustic, more industrial…total mod…It’s like a blank canvas…
        I think it’s wonderful. I would scoop it up in a minute if I could.

  • curt January 29, 2014, 3:03 am

    Interesting place- Like the side door with the fold down deck and fold up awning. Like the galvanized siding. Is that a muffler pipe/chimney on the front by the propane tanks for the water heater? I do have the feeling that somebody did spend a lot of time building this. I also have the feeling the parts, like windows, sinks, vent hood were shopped in greentag/clearance section and design was adapted to make them fit. The countertop in the kitchen is cool- the two propane burners usually more than enough to cook. the hood does seem like a afterthought- and wiping down rough weathered barn wood could become a issue. I have the feeling that you are expected to sit outside on the porch and enjoy the views.

  • Glema January 29, 2014, 5:19 am

    Nice lil house. Jane you might get it and add a closet rod across the top dividing the loft area using ur clothes as it were for the curtain? just a thought if you have so many clothes and can’t part with them 🙂

  • Derin January 29, 2014, 10:12 am

    I don’t think those who commented on the price quite get the labor that is involved in building a WELL built tiny house. I don’t know anything about this builder or about their quality, but lets say it took two people 200 hours (that’s on the low end) to build this house at $35 an hour ( that’s on par with what framers and finish carpenter’s get here in the NW, that would be $14000 in just labor. This does not include materials, electrical, plumbing, appliances, trailer, space to build, company overhead, insurance, windows, ect. You get the point. Labor costs are different throughout the country but my guess is that Boulder is not on the low end of that. Tiny homes equal tiny margins unless one is building many of them at one time. The trick is to build one that many people like and as you can see from the comments that tiny housers have their opinion on just about everything. I commend this builder for going simple, open floor plan, and using a few design elements to give it a unique feel. Also great idea for the bathroom sink drain.

  • Barbara March 16, 2014, 3:39 pm

    Needs a comfy chair. Am I too picky?

  • vstanley April 14, 2014, 8:04 am

    Pretty nice for the scraps used up.
    Those stairs-Kind of unsafe I think.
    .The shower-filthy.This person is attempting to sell this?
    The design isnt bad,but the materials are too scrappy.
    I guess asking isnt getting.Build your own.

  • Joni April 15, 2014, 8:58 pm

    I agree with you. But I also think that I would never pay that kind of money for old wood that looks like it was left outside and may have mold on it. I honesty liked a few things but most to me is not all that. It looks cheap in a lot of area’s and not at all worth the price. If I was going to pay that kind of money for this little of a home it would have to be OMG wonderful. If it was older wood it would be sanded and finished off.

  • Mike April 17, 2014, 12:26 am

    I think this is very well done and I like it alot! It looks as though a lot of effort went into maximizing open spaces and compared to alot of tiny homes this looks very open. The windows have been strategically placed such as the one above the desk, I might have added a skylight, especially above the loft. I also like the bathroom sink! Putting the sink in a simple board and draining it into the shower as well as the spartan faucet is minimalist genius! I have to take away some point for the shower which looks awfully sad, a galvanized steel stall or horse trough would have looked much nicer, cmon guys! I am also a little worried that it looks as though the fresh water lines for the sink and the show are both on outside walls, hopefully they don’t freeze in the winter. I can also see why some dislike the closet, it looks like someone was trying a little too hard to make it look rustic and instead it looks a little dilapidated, but probably not a very hard fix.

    The stairs are very nice but I see some king of rubberized treads in their future.

    Aside from a few small quibbles I think this is a very nice unit. Somewhat pricey but very nicely designed and executed. The mean comments are a little surprising. The unit could use a woman’s touch but people should be able to look past little things like the cold lighting or a little dirt in the shower, cmon people..

    • Alex April 17, 2014, 10:55 am

      Thanks Mike!

  • rpdii July 2, 2014, 11:57 pm

    Flammable material above the stove? Very bad idea.

  • Richard July 21, 2014, 10:40 pm

    The materials used in making this model is high end and if you only add up the cost of the trailer($4000), framing($1500), insulation($2000), and windows($2000) you’re looking around $10,000 brand new and that’s not including siding, finishes, appliances, and custom cabinetry. It really depends where you buy your materials.

    • deanna October 16, 2014, 4:43 pm

      I just can’t believe with all the info out there on this web page alone – that someone would pay close to $30,000 for this. I hate to say it, but the inside looks like something pieced together without any aesthetics in mind. This would never be considered for where I plan to park mine. For me, part of the movement for going small is to still fit in – A lot of people out there are unsure about having small houses next door and I think the inside of this is a reason why – sanitation looks like a liability here. It’s not all about going cheap – Its about thinking of what we are leaving behind for the next generation – eco friendly.
      On the other hand the outside is great on the eyes. An awesome use of lines and symetry.

      • Richard October 16, 2014, 9:02 pm

        I design and build homes for a living and yes, I agree some things such as the closet and stairs could use some added effort. However, most of the finishes inside and out are pure to the material content unlike most drywall and MDF trimmed homes we have today. As far as problems with sanitation everything looks correct, except the sink draining into the shower(residue from toothpaste). But, original designs are hard to come by and living tiny is much different to our current social standard. Oh, and eco-freindly, these houses use 10 times less heat and electricity than a standard home and can be used year-round in a urban or rural environment. I believe that these tiny homes will impact on how we build today and possibly give way to inspiring people to want smaller and more efficient housing. That is something we can pass on to future generations.

    Whilst the comments area is for constructive critique I don’t agree it’s for tearing the poor builder or photographers apart after all (not in all cases) as this isn’t a novice build but IT COULD as easily of been!!! then what would you have said??

    I think the premise ” Show us your build, If you think your tough enough” is rather apt here, I mean I guess, many of the worst comments have come via those that wouldn’t know where to start on a build, far less having ever completed one.

    Thus the moral is IF you can’t match or do better why tear another apart ? and if you can THEN DO SO and show us all ao we can constuctively destroy it for you, letting you see just how it feels !!!!

    • Alex August 7, 2014, 9:40 am

      I agree, we shouldn’t be tearing anybody apart. I apologize. I normally monitor the comments better.

  • Brent August 15, 2014, 3:05 am

    Way too much money for that. On average at 100 sq ft to build on an 8×20 trailer thats 16k. Buy a trailer for 3 k..19k is all it takes…NEW MATERIALS…Been there done that. Thats bigger than this one shown. Not to mention used wood and tin doesnt cost near as much as new. If you build it yourself its even cheaper. People are selling dreams not homes here. I am a tiny home owner of an 8×20 which I had built while away working on a job. Price was pretty much as I listed. My brother is int he process of building his as well. Asking prices of these homes are outrageous. Do your homework people.

  • Alex September 18, 2014, 3:59 pm

    I wish some of you in the comments would try designing and building one of these so you can realize how much time and hard labor is involved so you can realize the value in some of these completely finished tiny homes.

    We have countless stories of people who do it themselves who have spent 2-3 YEARS building. Don’t you all agree that’s worth something? Come on folks, let’s respect and value builders time.

    • Alex September 18, 2014, 4:00 pm

      These are not mass manufactured homes from China… Most of these builders are doing the work themselves, taking a big risk, and they’re not enslaving anybody to ridiculously low wages either.

  • Dominick Bundy September 18, 2014, 8:43 pm

    I like everything about this tiny home. all the windows ,especially the large one in the back. Job well done..

  • Judy Lujan May 1, 2016, 10:22 am

    Boulder is very expensive. I know – it’s my hometown. I too think this house is way overpriced but it’s Boulder and 30,000 is so much cheaper than a regular house….

  • Jason December 6, 2016, 2:22 pm

    I am unable to finish my tiny house. Below is the link to my ad on Craigslist. I have it listed for $22k as_is. Maybe we could work something out; commission to you for helping me sell at or above asking price? If you’re interested please reply. Thanks and have a great day!



  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN March 11, 2017, 7:00 am

    Another nice little shack….!

  • ROSEE March 14, 2017, 9:31 am

    Now this is what you call a THOW! with all the comforts of a home! And the price is absolutely great!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee March 14, 2017, 9:41 am

      Precisely 🙂

  • Sam April 30, 2017, 2:05 pm

    Looks like it is designed to travel with which poses a problem. The open shelving for most of the storage, do you box everything up every morning before you break camp? So many tiny homes that are designed for roaming have open shelves – looks like a major pain in the neck to me. Or, are these tiny homes supposed to set up permanently and if so why the trailer? Why not just haul them in on a flat bed and set them up?? Someone please comment on this for me because I don’t get it.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee May 1, 2017, 2:57 am

      Hi Sam — some people just like the aesthetic of open shelving, although I do think having it closed if you’ll be travelling a lot to be the best bet. Most tiny houses on wheels are built that way to avoid certain building codes (usually the minimum square footage rule), and to allow an individual to move if they want to or need to. So you may only move once or twice a year, but you have the freedom to do so if it’s on wheels. On land you will likely need to build a larger home and get the appropriate permits, etc.

      • Sam May 1, 2017, 9:14 pm

        Thanks so much for the answer, Natalie. It was very enlightening; now I get it. : o)
