This is the Boundary THOW from North Line Portable Cabins.

The home has a really cool utility room that’s accessible by a second door, which I’ve never seen before. This model comes with a bunk-bed set up that allows for both ground-level and “loft” sleeping — not a bad idea!

Couch/bed bunk bed set-up. Clever!


Looking at the house from the bathroom.


Cute tiny oven! I think this size is perfect.


Small refrigerator, but you don’t have to bend over to get stuff out.


Love the natural wood grain in the cabinets.


Good storage under the counters.


The table flips down if you need it to. Those stools are great.


Pocket doors are great for tiny houses!


Beautiful beach-cottage style in the bathroom.

    Nice house. However, i think the 4-burner stove could have been better position.

      Could be–but if you put it along the wall, and turned the space where it is into counter, you’ve probably got something more likely to hip-check yourself on a regular basis, so it may be better where it is.

      I do like the use of a narrow stove here. Saves space. However, after seeing so many THOWs with full-size stoves, and then one recently with a two-burner, I’m leaning towards thinking the latter makes more sense unless you like to cook a lot, or cook more complex meals requiring 3+ burners. I myself find I nearly never need that many, and the extra counter space you’d gain would be, to me, quite welcome.

    I didn’t see anything about solar panels but I did see they have 2 one hundred gallon water tanks so I guess it could go off grid pretty easily.

    No bathroom sink?

      Yup, doesn’t look like they’re including a bathroom sink…

      There are pros and cons to doing that as there are reasons why you may not want a sink in close proximity to a flushing toilet in a small and enclosed space… Let’s just say, never forget to close the seat cover lid before flushing…

      You could always get the combo toilet sink as a easy fix, though… or have a fold out sink in the shower area and thus not need to use up any more space and it would be easier to keep clean…

      Old school options also include just putting a wash basin on top of the little dresser… Just fill with water when you want to use and dump into the shower stall when done…

      While, if going off grid, even with 200 gallons of water you may want to use disinfectant cleaning wipes to help save water, especially if you like to take daily showers…

      Btw, looks like they’re using a macerator with the toilet, which means they’re using small pipes and possibly a vacuum pump for a low water flush…

      First time I’ve seen one in a Tiny House… Usually, they’re used to help place restrooms in places that originally didn’t have any plumbing as a low cost solution that avoids needing to do a lot of excavation for the piping as it allow the use of thinner pipping… along with needing less water… and the unit is usually behind the wall instead of directly underneath the toilet cistern…

      Depending on what’s in the utility closet on the other side of the wall, you can probably get a little more space by switching to an in wall cistern and moving the toilet that much closer to the wall to be more out of the way…

      Maybe even get one of the self cleaning models… would be worth the added cost IMO…

    The utility room is a great idea because everything which may fail or needs maintenance is accessible unlike the hidden ones eating up from a small space.
    However, the floor plan doesn’t provide any living space beside the bat type eating which I don’t like either.
    Installing a lift up bed could resolve the living space problem and the bed is always ready, a fold down table for facing each other when eating could easy replace the current eating space.
    What remains is lack of bathroom sink, which is for me a must and a decent wardrobe for hanging clothes.
    The width height ratio is good and shows what can be done when loft is eliminated.
    Otherwise well done

      Lift up beds are cool, for sure!
