    How much does this tiny house cost?

    Needs a mini-split; but the fan is a good idea. I would like it if the stair treads lifted up and each step was a storage box. And I’d have the refrigerator up on a (storage) box to raise it off the floor to make it less bending over and easier on the back. Other than this little bit of tweaking, this place is good to go! 😀

    Lots of good space utilization on the inside. Where do all the people occupying bed space hang out? Couch?

    Lots of missed opportunity to make the outside look less box-like.

    It looks like they have a Sun-Mar, a true composting toilet. Does anyone have experience with one of these? I’m trying to decide between a Separett and a Sun-Mar. My understanding is you have to add material to the Sun-Mar and turn a crank but it makes soil in the bottom drawer. With the Separett, the urine is expelled with grey water, you don’t need to add material but you collect the solid waste in a bag. I won’t be able to compost this Humanure on the property I’ll be on so it will just be tossed out with the garbage.

      SunMar can require maintenance, mechanism can clog, etc. So consider that from time to time you may have to open it up and get personal with the contents… It sits pretty high as well so you’d usually need a little step to keep your feet from dangling…

      If you’re not going to use the compost then this is probably too high priced for your needs anyway, and it takes up quite a bit of room in the bathroom…

      The Separatt has a automatically opening trap door when you sit… So you don’t have to remember to press a lever to open the opening to the bin with it, and it closes automatically when you get up…

      The Nature’s Head is a little cheaper and generally better for composting but as you won’t need that function then a model with a bag like the Separett has may be better for you… But mind your local rules for how it can be dumped as you can’t always just throw it out with the trash…

      Though, you can consider other options like the Dry Flush toilet… it basically bags your waste with each flush, each cartridge provides 12-17 flushes, and when full just pull the outer black bag up and wrap it for dumping and you’ll never be left exposed to the contents… Basically a big bag full of tiny bags… But the costs for the cartridges can add up over time if you need to use it a lot…

      There’s also the incinerating toilets… Electric version requires about a 20 Amp service but they also sell version that can run off propane and 12v for the fan and timer… Like it sounds, it cremates your waste into ash for easy dumping… But ongoing costs is either electricity or propane, with each use requiring a disposable liner be inserted first but that does mean even if you had a issue it’ll all go down and get incinerated without you needing to do anything to clean it up… Can leave a burnt smell but if you leave the exhaust pipe high then that shouldn’t be a issue… Timer for the burn cycle can also be adjusted and if you can do multiple uses within a single burn cycle then that helps save on energy use…

      There’s also dehydration toilets, but you’d have to bag those yourself…

      While most other alternatives won’t work if you don’t either compost or have access to a sewer dump station…

        Thanks for your through reply James, you pretty much had me at “clog”. I’ll likely go with the Separett; I’m a fan of the that trap door. Honestly, I’d do the ‘lovable loo’ if I was strong enough to carry the bucket. Eventually I do want to be on some land where I will be able to compost the humanure so the Separett is probably the best choice. I know it has a fan and one bag is supposed to last quite a while. The others have to0 many bags and I believe the Incinolet also requires the use of paper liners. Trying to avoid waste with my waste.

      I am considering a Grinder toilet and a bladder tank. Bladder tanks are used in construction. They come in different sizes to 500 gallons. They are square and low to the ground. Every few months have it pumped. If you add up the gallons of water used per flush and gray you can go for a while. Just an idea. I will have two on board tanks with a 1.2 gal toilet; black 22gal and gray 80 gal, potable 95gal, to use if I am mobile. When home I will have a diverter valve of the black and gray tanks to go directly to the septic system; bladder or in ground.

        I don’t think I’ve heard of this, thank you for sharing. I’m actually really excited about not using water to flush my waste so that’s why I’m looking at those types of toilets. But I know a lot of people are only comfortable with the standard North American style flush toilet.

        • James D.
          July 6, 2017, 11:33 pm

          Yeah, grinder is referring to the pump it uses but basically think low water flush toilet connected to a maserator and pump that can be placed anywhere and can use small piping to either connect it to your sewer system or black tank…

          Typically, residential uses are for adding a toilet to a area of the house that wasn’t originally plumbed… Like the garage, basement, etc. The pump allows it to be placed low and so doesn’t rely on gravity to drain away the waste…

          The toilet itself will look normal, it’ll just connect to a maserator and pump box that’s usually hidden inside or on the other side of the wall… Usually good for adding a half bath, etc.

          500 Gallon tank, though, won’t exactly be easy to dump on your own… Thus you’d need to hire a company to come by and have it pumped out for disposal…

          Though, there are portable black tank dollys that RV’ers use so they don’t have to tow their rig to the dump station…

          Anyway, yeah… Won’t let you avoid using water and adds the issue of having to get rid of it at some point…

          Though, incidentally… A very similar system is used for flushing composting toilets…

          Invirolet’s FlushSmart, SunMar’s Cental Flush, and Clivus Multrum are three such systems… The Clivus Multrum differs in that it uses foam but you can find it being used in such places like the Bronx Zoo…

          The Invirolet’s FlushSmart uses just 6 ounces of water, with the maserator and pump system so it can flush your waste up to 70 feet away or 12 feet up into the composting bin, which can be doubled up for extra capacity and each bin can handle a number of toilets for a system that can be sized to just about any need…

          The toilet will just look like a regular low flush toilet… Not cheap though, costs about 3-4 times what the Nature’s Head cost, to 8 times if you get the high capacity setup…

          But you’ll use a fraction of the water and it’ll still compost…

          There’s also other options like vermicomposting… Faster than regular composting and it can also be combined with a flush system or straight composting… Very flexible…

          I’d basically advise doing some research on the various composting methods to see what will work best for you and the setup you plan on having when you have your own property…

          Regular Humanore takes several months to two years to properly composts, primarily because you have to be pretty sure all the pathogens and harmful bacteria is killed off before you can use the compost safely but there are methods like hot composting that can speed that up…

          While animal manure is pretty safe to handle and thus what’s often used for farming compost piles…

          Needless to say, lots of options out there…

    Very nice house. Lots of good ideas. I would want the original true composting toilet though. Natures head is half the price of this unit.

    • James D.

      The SunMar model there actually does the complete composting cycle… It’s why it’s so big…

      Nature’s Head just starts the process but you’d need to dump it into a composting bin to complete the process… It’s not a all in one system… So there’s a reason for the price difference…

      That said, the Nature’s Head takes up less space in the bathroom and a separate composting bin gives you more capacity and a easier composting cycle that will require less maintenance than the SunMar…

    I really like this house. Love the wood, the bathroom vanity looks a good size. It has a dishwasher! Everything I like about a house is there.
