    I was always led to believe that any trailer towed on a public road couldn’t be over 8′ wide without a permit? Correct me if I’m wrong. Beautiful build regardless. Sincerely Peter

      Except for the highways that are federally regulated, it will depend on the state and even local county what the specific rules apply and how strictly they’re enforced or not.

      On the highways, you can get away with 8′ 6″ max width but that may limit you to only traveling within 8-10 miles of the highway on nearby local roads, which can be a constraint that say a Class A motor home may have to deal with, for example.

      While local roads may be more strict, usually, or less. Dirt roads, back country areas, etc. may have little to no regulations on the matter. Such variations is also why when you do need permits it’s for each area/state you pass through that requires the permit and may require additional things like an escort in some places.

      It can also depend on the width of the road, like whether it’s 12′ wide or wider for what is allowed to be on it, along with other considerations as weight, length, and height can also factor to whether or not you need a permit and/or special license. Add, some places/regions may allow annual/seasonal permits for those who travel often but most would be time limited, but it ranges from single trip to extended use.

      Most tiny houses are built so they can use the highways and so usually use the max 8′ 6″ width limit. Though, that’s widest point to widest point. So something like a roof overhang means the walls have to be further in from that max width. Same with sconce lights, or anything else that sticks out the sides, as everything else has to be less to keep the structure within the limit.

      However, it’s not difficult to get permits and depending on type and area you’re traveling it may not cost much extra. You may even be able to go online to get a permit, or just plan some days in advance in others.

    I like this home so much that I went to their website to build my own exactly as this one but maybe changing the exterior colors and some colors here and there. Unfortunately, just starting the build was already at $154,200.00. That is without adding anything at all which is nothing like this house, essentials like the a stove and microwave are extras and so you are charged more for those. No dishwasher and not washer and dryer either, they are extra which I could understand but no range or microwave in the kitchen included?! Just choosing the width of 10 feet like this house cost an additional $22,230.00 which brought the running total to$176,430.00 and I wasn’t even half way there. Out of my price range but it may not be for others. Thanks for sharing.

      Manufacturers know there’s a sucker around every corner dumb enough to spend that ridiculous amount of money. You and so many others are smart enough to know that there are hundreds of ways to build a tiny home without going broke. By the way, with this particular home you checked on, did the toilet come with the flush handle or was that a separate charge?

        Nothing to do with being a sucker, you simply aren’t going to get the kind of services they offer for less!

        Architects, structural engineers, designers, master crafts people, etc. aren’t going to work for free and only the cost of assembly, like they were minimum wage earners in a country with no human rights. There just has to be a reality check if you want a home built with those kinds of services, conveniences they provide, and have everything customized to your exact preferences and needs. Versus either DIY or a standard model unit with far fewer choices and options.

        Besides, attitudes like this are one of the reasons for rising prices. Since, it’s an example of the disrespect for the trades, which leads to fewer people wanting to be in the trades. Something that has been going on since the 80’s, and now the consequence that we have fewer people in the trades, more people retiring than entering these job fields, at a time of rising demand, and resulting in higher pricing, much like many other over strained markets dealing with limited and dwindling resources.

        Some people have the money to spend but in my case I can’t justify spending that kind of money for a tiny home regardless of how “luxurious” it is.

    This is a beautiful tiny but is it real? The exterior pictures don’t match. The door is in two different places and the roof-lines are different as well as the paint job.

      It’s real, look more carefully… Like that there’s 2 doors and not 1… Note which side the 5th wheel/Gooseneck is facing in each photo for orientation as photos pan around from one side to the other…

    This one hits all the bells and whistles, but as per the comment above would be way too expensive. Would love it as is! Love the modernism, the dark ceilings, and yet the space looks bright and airy! Love, love, love all that closet space and the storage! 10+

    Suits some people, others not so much. Me, I’m in the latter category.

    Tiny House Design: WOW! Gorgeous!! Price: Holy moly!!! If you can’t move it around easily but you need this much space, might as well get a park model for much less. That kitchen is amazing, and the small living room is great…We’re gonna need a bigger TV! 😉 I’m not a blue person…more of a green person…but these blue accents are beautiful. I’m pretty much over all the gray people have been using for years so I’d choose other colors for the exterior as well as the floor but that’s just personal preference. Loads of people still love the gray…go figure! hahaha This is a nicely done Tiny…OMG, did I mention the closets?…so kudos to the designers but they might want to figure out how to cut a few corners to lower that price. Californians may not balk as much as some other folks because of the completely ridiculous housing costs but even this amount might not pass the affordability test.

      “If you can’t move it around easily but you need this much space, might as well get a park model for much less.”

      Not if it’s custom built to the same high end standards, Park Model RVs will cost more at that range as they can easily go over $200K on the high end and custom building has a higher cost premium in the RV industry, especially, for factory built products like Park Models.

      For comparison, for a motor home like a Class A Bus, custom built starts over $500,000… Class B Van, custom starts over $300,000… Gooseneck/5th wheelers, custom normally starts over $100,000… Though, there are companies that may allow a range of options, instead of doing full custom, that still allows a level of tailoring the unit for the owner that may avoid the price premium of true custom.

      Custom built tends to be the most expensive way to build but it gives people more control, more options, and can give more benefits to the owner with a product specially tailored to them. While tiny house builders generally offer custom at a competitive, compared to most other markets, rates and can more readily include options like structural engineer, architect, designers, and other services at those rates instead of charging a lot extra as most other markets do. Like regular housing market an architect typically gets 10% of the house building budget…

      Otherwise, the lower cost model Park Model RVs can certainly be an option and like many RV’s can fairly easily be found for lower than MSRP, especially older models that have depreciated, but they start with lower minimum standards and build quality as part of the trade offs some might have to deal with when choosing a Park Model RV. Along with generally being harder to use a Park Model RV as an ADU, like in WA a tiny house can be an ADU but a Park Model can’t, and other differences from what can and can’t be done with a Tiny House…

      While the advantage of a Gooseneck/5th wheel is that it makes it easier to tow larger structures, which is why most larger Trailer RV’s/Caravans/Toy Haulers go with that design.

      “so kudos to the designers but they might want to figure out how to cut a few corners to lower that price.”

      That’s up to the client/owner, as it’s their choice with custom builds…

    The terms “luxury” and “High End” are being used very loosely by all kinds of manufacturers these days in order to justify the increases in costs. And this (IMO) doesn’t only apply to home manufacturers but others such as motor-vehicles and the like.
    Here is an example before someone has a stroke because of my opinion! Tesla models 3 and Y, the cars are NOT luxury cars but expensive because of the technology and yet it is often categorized as a luxury vehicle. You want luxury and expensive then look at Rolls Royce, Maybach and the like.

    I’ve been watching tiny houses for years. Prices vary, but I find that designs don’t hit most of my must-haves. i.e. I dislike open shelves anywhere. In kitchens… one point of this is to spend less time cleaning. And in bedrooms, it looks sloppy. My biggest hurdle is that I’m a bibliophile… I can not live without books. This design not only has closets, but I can arrange things for my tomes. The kitchen is practical, and the overall layout is wonderful. Exactly what I’d like. Tweak a few things with the exterior and it’s all but perfect.
