    I understand the need for a huge refrigerator where there is a large family. Tiny homes aren’t normally built for a large family, although some tiny homes are built in such a way that several family members can live in a tiny home (e.g., bunk beds). Heck, I would guess that a good deal of conventional homes don’t have refrigerators that big. So excluding personal preference, why else would one give up precious space for a refrigerator built for a large kitchen or a very small diner?

      Well, there’s a lot of practical reasons like not wanting to shop for food very often and even wanting to avoid shopping for up to very long periods.

      While some people just consume more food than others, like athletes will burn a lot more calories, or people who like to drink cold beverages, which can take up a lot more space than just food alone requires. Even people who can, ferment, etc. may still keep food in the fridge that may be intended to last them up to most of the year.

      Some foods do require more space to provide sufficient amounts, like a vegan will generally require more space for the same amount of calories provided and this increases with variety in one’s diet.

      Add, people without families may still entertain, make meals for guests and friends, etc.

      Then there’s features that some advance fridges offer, like multiple temperature zones to keep different foods at the ideal temperatures, which are not the type of features you’d see in most smaller fridges.

      Not to mention simple future proofing, having a fridge that can adapt to changing needs can be what fits some people’s needs. Mind, not all of them will be what are expected, like someone with specific medical conditions may need to keep their medical supplies in a cool environment. Certain cosmetics and other items people may use can also require being kept cool to make them last longer. People who garden and work with flowers, etc. may need to use some fridge space to keep cuttings fresh longer, etc.

    I’m impressed that this is an affordable tiny home for many. Apparently I missed the bathroom but like everything I saw — and how neat that one can put a picture up without looking for a stud!!! As for the large fridge — I personally will always want a large fridge wherever I live. The advantage of not having to shop for food often — plus plenty of freezer space is important to me — in fact, a serviceable kitchen would be of paramount importance to me as well as storage spaces.

    I don’t see a price range. Regarding the fridge, I know they are trying to standardize to make costs as low as possible, but I do think they should offer a plan with a smaller fridge and maybe a narrow broom closet in the extra space. Also I’m not keen on having the washer-dryer in the open outside the bathroom. But I applaud them for taking their idea from a dream to reality. They’ve considered so many aspects of strength, efficiency and comfort. I look forward to watching their continued success.

      Prices start a little over $50K for the base, single unit, model and goes up from there. Cost of delivery, site setup, etc. will depend on location, how far you are from them, what permits and local requirements you’ll have to meet, etc. Along with which model you purchase, and quantity as the units can be combined, stacked, etc. So a lot of variables on the final price and thus not something that can be just listed.

      While they can offer some alternative floor plans but everything has to be pack-able in the form the units ship in and they’re still a growing company. So there’s limits what they can offer and a very long waiting list as demand is crazy high and they’re maybe a year or more out before they can even begin to catch up with pre-orders…

      They introduced the Casita at 50k base price, excluding delivery, setup, etc, but more recently the base cost has increased to $60k according to reports and seems likely to go higher given inflation and how things always seem to end up costing significantly more than initial “Grab-Attention!” pricing.

      They now estimate delivery costs of $3~10/mile (up from initial $3~8/mi), so if live 1,500 miles away, that could easily add $10k to overall costs, so probably want to figure on at least $80k depending on your location, foundation, etc. Still not bad, given that appliances, fixtures, heating/cooling (mini-split) and such are included..but you’re still in a 375 sq ft home, which could potentially be stick-built for similar if not less–and not have to wait 2+ years!
