Your little houses with land link doesn’t work.
this looks like something that could really be a home! just a little too much glass (crazy right!) with the door wall directly across from the entry door, there could be another pc of furniture there like a chair or storage even – otherwise this is great
Lots of glass is a hallmark of Escape Homes, most of their designs seek to embrace the environment they are placed in. Understandable considering they started as a custom Park Model RV company before evolving into a Tiny Home builder. Most of their early builds would be placed in scenic environments that you would normally associate with cabins and cottages…
However, since evolving to a tiny home company, they do custom… So you don’t have to settle for an existing design/model as is…
While this is their first Manufactured House and is over 600 Sq Ft in size… Nearly 12′ wide and 54′ in length… And, being a Manufactured House means it’s legally a residential home under HUD and doesn’t fall under tiny houses…
You can look up their Tradition model series for a Tiny House version of this style, though…
This is the same size of my mobile home built back in the 60’S Whats so special about this one?
I have a screened in porch with an added hot tub, I enclosed the carport, Have a small 8 ft by 5 ft deck to the front door that I plan on roofing over to protect it from the weather.
I bought it 3 1/2 years ago put in new windows added new siding and did a lot of remodeling to the kitchen and living room. Added a brick outside patio that I built myself from recycled bricks.
I live in a retired over 55 park that has around 80 or so small homes.
Living small is not new Kids!!! Lots of us have been doing it for many years !
It goes all the way back to the pioneer days when you where lucky to have a roof over your head.
Many a log cabin housed more than the immediate family but housed the extended family as well.
In my own opinion the prices for the majority of these contractor tiny built homes is ridiculous.
Just an old gals (age 74) opinion and thoughts.
I have looking for a small mobile home (less than 60 foot long and single wide) and can’t find one. Where did you find yours? Thanks…
While it’s true that tiny living is nothing new, large living only started since the 1950’s, and most of human history people have been living in small to tiny structures of all types, but there are differences.
Key being these modern tiny houses are generally being built to much higher standards, there’s much more demand for energy efficiency, durability, and longevity with preferably minimal maintenance. All of which tends to increase the cost of homes as they use more materials and demand more labor to build them but that is the direction the market is taking them as that is what people have become used to and is part of the struggle to make them legal and accepted in a society that has grown to be biased towards alternative ways of life.
To put that in perspective in how they compare to regular modern houses, the national average cost for a regular new house in 2020 is now $304,178 and custom built homes can cost 2x or more. Resulting in homes that can run into the millions and still only be around 2000 Sq Ft. Thanks to a number of factors, including more strict building codes that enforce higher energy efficiency standards, more regulations, and other costs…
Mind, we’re dealing with a much larger population, world population has more than doubled since the 70’s, and diminishing resources. Gone are the days where centuries old trees that could be even thousands of years old in some cases were in abundance. So there’s a lot more competition to deal with… While inflation has greatly reduced the value of the dollar over the decade…
The inflation rate in the United States between 1956 and 2020 was 858.86%, which translates into a total increase of $858.86. This means that $100 dollars in 1956 are equivalent to $958.86 dollars in 2020. In other words, the purchasing power of $100 in 1956 equals $958.86 in 2020. The average annual inflation rate between these periods was 3.6%.
While home builders are increasingly being required to meet higher energy efficiency standards and use more costly building materials and additional costs that have piled on them over the years.
So there are multiple reasons why everything seems so much more expensive these days that even going tiny doesn’t fully escape but it is a problem that is being worked on, with some being more successful than others at getting costs to be at least mostly more reasonable again but understanding what people are actually getting, what goes into it, how it’s done etc. is what more people need to understand in order to be able to tackle the costs and really make changes to the housing market…
You just provided a wealth of information that I and I am sure many people did not know. Is there any way to post your answer on Facebook?
Feel free to copy and paste anything you think others will find useful. It’s all information people can find online if they research it…
Agreed. And, I might be able to add something here. My first home, in 1971, was a custom built mobile home. It was about the same size as this Escape model, 12′ X 60′. It had central all electric HVAC, included washer and dryer and all appliances, full size normal ones, by the way. It was two bedroom, each had a good size closet, it had an elevated dinning room, cathedral ceiling in the den and it cost $6500. The biggest difference I see between that house and the ones I see on here today is quality of materials and construction. My original home was framed with 2 x 4’s that were ripped in half, actual dimensions were 1 1/2″ by 1 3/4″. The outside skin was very thin aluminum over something similar to thick kraft paper house wrap. The insulation was R-7 at best. The inside wall and ceiling covering was some sort of vinyl skinned 3/16″ Masonite or 3/16″ wood paneling. The windows were very thin glass in aluminum frames. Counter tops were plastic laminate. So, yes they were cheap. Today, better materials get used even for RVs. One other indication of the difference is the axles. that 1971 home rode on two 5,300 lb axles. Today’s modular, factory built homes often have 4 or more axles because of the much heavier construction. Today folks want granite counter tops, real hardwood over real 3/4″ sub-floors and at least 4″, sometimes 6″, wall framing with OSB or plywood sheathing under the exterior covering. There is just no comparison.
And, just one more point. If I took that old 1971 home and built the exact same cheap version today just with the difference in inflation it would cost very close to $40,000. In fact, it could not be built that cheaply today because it would not meet any of today’s codes.
Agreed, Park homes are nothing new, but I will add that the Escape model seen in this section is especially nice.
I think its the appointments that set current park models / Tiny homes apart from their predecessors.
Also, noticed that your home is 60×12. That’s 720 sq. ft.. If you take 10 feet off the length and add it to the width, you have a home that is 50×22. That’s 1100 sq. ft. At that point, you’re probably looking at a nice little modular home. =)
This looks beautiful! I bet it’s terribly expensive, though.
Kinda terrifying how there’s NO counter space in kitchen but waaay to much in bathroom.
Trade something for more counter space. Otherwise not aesthetically interesting. Above commenter is right! And this ain’t even all that tiny.
It depends upon where you live in North America. I live in British Colombia and new homes don’t come much under 3000 sq. ft. Since the 1960s homes are all over 2000 sq. ft. unless you specifically had a bungalow built and that would be 1000 sq. ft. and up.
Inflation and cost of land is a huge thing here. A house which was built and sold in the 1960s for $12K sold in the 1970s for $25K. Today the same house, still sitting on its same lot will go for well over $1.5M. When the market is better, like last year, it would go for $2Million.
Manufactured homes in B.C. are considered quite inexpensive because you can purchase one for $100K and up, depending upon size and finishes. Unfortunately most local governments’ prohibit them in cities, towns, etc. Rural areas, they can be used.
With the rising costs of houses, many people are living in their R.V.s. thus making them tiny homes. Again, if they are renting pads, in a park, the whole park can be sold to a developer and every one is land less. Some municipal areas which have R.V. parks restrict living in them to 8 months a year.
For many couples who are used to living in larger homes, the double sinks are non negotiable, even for a vacation home. Not being a fan of large kitchens, waste of space and money, this kitchen is perfect. For those who like to cook and entertain a lot, this kitchen is small, but again, with tiny/small homes its easy to customize.
This home is lovely. The lay out and size if good for many who are downsizing. Would I purchase some thing like this. In a heart beat, especially if I had a view property. Given many cities, towns, etc. don’t permit manufactured homes, this lay out would lend itself well to a stick build.
I would love this for some land that I own in upstate New York. What is the cost? The problem with many of these tiny homes is that they are a novel idea but much more expensive than traditional build homes.
Actually, that’s false, the national average for a traditional new house is $304,178 vs around $30,000 for tiny houses… People just confuse what they’re being compared to, for example…
Old houses are cheaper than newly built houses… But tiny houses shown in places like this site will typically be newly built…
Houses aren’t all equal, some are better built, have more features and amenities, are more energy efficient, cater to special needs, etc… and this remains true for tiny houses…
Location also plays a factor as housing costs are not the same everywhere and some places you can pay over $10,000 in permits and other fees before even starting to build the house and even an empty lot can cost more in some areas than a complete house property in another part of the country… This often combines with older, exiting homes to give very lopsided comparisons of housing costs.
Spec or especially tract houses will be cheaper than custom built that will cost from 50% on up to multiple times more…
Comparisons like cost per sq ft don’t scale linearly and thus seem much higher for smaller structures that actually cost less…
People also don’t all consider all the additional costs, as nationally the average home owner is paying over $9000 in additional costs on their homes every year. Not to mention more to heat and cool, more for utilities, more for taxes, more for insurance, more for furnishing, more for cleaning and maintenance, etc. that can all add up to multiple times the purchase cost of the home over 30+ years, even without needing renovations, remodels, rehabilitation, etc. or dealing with other situations like failing foundations that can turn them into serious money pits.
Movable homes can avoid things like forest fires and other natural disasters that can destroy traditional homes, and they generally have a lot less on additional costs…
So all of that has to be considered when comparing prices… Most high cost tiny houses actually compare to up to million dollar traditional homes for apples to apples comparison as they are being done up to completely custom with high end material choices, technology, things like off-grid functionality, and levels of craftsmanship that you normally won’t see in a standard home…
But they’re not all done that way. So, just like anything in any other market, prices vary from budget to high end. There are tiny homes as low as a few thousand and even commercially built ones can be below $20,000, with shells and DIY kits that can be below $10,000…
Besides, Tiny Houses aren’t new… It’s more of an old idea being rediscovered by a new generation… Like any tool, it just depends how it’s used…
I went to Escape’s web site and didn’t see this exact same home, but the Premier 2 bedroom looks very similar at $107,000. But look carefully because they have a ton of options that looked like you could double the price pretty easily. Like 2ft eave overhangs $6000, 3/4″ hardwood instead of laminate floors $2000, stainless appliances $1800 and the list goes on and on.
Defn not so hot! Remove stove/range and install microvawe underneath only a flat stovetop…remove those cupboards and put in a LARGE window..extend shelves all the way to the fridge…mechanical room too big..most likeky I do not know what I am talking about..liiiiitle smaller vuves a biiiiiiger pantry..better?…remove workable..rather have proper table and 4 chairs..more open space..HATE those small windows in bedrooms..bigger and open behind bed …if it hàs to…a beautiful headboard feature can dò it! Sorry to criticize..for a 1 bedroom also nice.
This strikes me as a typical mobile home…I see some beautiful versions here in FL, especially in 55+ communities, but what it doesn’t seem like: A tiny home.
Not that either are wrong. I’m just saying I thought it would be more of a THOW style.
Yes, it’s a Manufactured House. Part of this company’s custom built offerings… They do have tiny house models but they’re expanding the range they offer…
Company originally built Park Model RV’s before evolving into a Tiny House builder and now offer Manufactured Houses as well, which allows them to go bigger than 400 sq ft they have traditionally been limited to…
It’s basically over 600 sq ft… Nearly 12′ wide and 54′ long… 2 bedroom layout… Under HUD, etc.
Very nice but I am afraid to look at the price and bust my dreams
It doesn’t feel “tiny” to me, but it would be a comfortable place to live. I might need more counter space in the kitchen. I mean, if the house were truly tiny, that would be enough counter space. But with the rest of the house being pretty big, the equation shifts.
That’s exactly it! Counter space would be fine for a real tiny home. But out of proportion here. Switch something out.
Actually, counter space is a matter of preference. Not everyone wants or needs a lot of counter space and this is a custom build. So it’s designed how someone wanted it…
Besides, most of the space is taken up by the 2 full bedrooms, complete with closets, side tables, etc. and the living room…
The kitchen is actually bigger than what would be in a tiny house… Counter top depth, for example, in a tiny house would be 20″ or less but this is 24″… It’s mainly the full size appliances that are making it seem smaller, as it’s not using the apartment size or smaller appliances you’d see in most tiny house.
There’s also a dedicated dining/work table space that in most tiny houses would be either much smaller or non-existent or part of a shared, transformable, multi-use space, and the same with the living room…
The bathroom shown is just the one attached to the master bedroom with the king size bed. There’s another smaller bathroom for the secondary bedroom with the queen size bed.
So it’s basically designed for either a family of three or a couple who want/need a guest room…
Though, an easy fix to counter top space is switch the dedicated dining/work table to a height adjustable kitchen island that can then serve all three functions… The induction range has a glass surface that is flush with the counter top that can also be used as part of the counter top when not cooking and there’s always the old cutting board over the sink trick for even more space…
There’s also fold out kitchen islands that could be options as well or you can trade the dish washer for a pull out kitchen island… Or one of the cabinets can store a fold out table… Or you could opt for one of the newer modular/transformable kitchens that can change layout as needed… There’s lots of options for kitchens these days…
Thanks for explaining. I thought that would be possible-thanks for clarifying
You have a lovely large table across from the counter to work on also, it makes a huge workspace in a small footprint.
I love how airy and spacious the interior looks, probably due to the light wood color and white paint. I would like separation between the dining area and the living room; perhaps have a wall or half wall separating the two areas.
I love it.
How much for this model….ball park cost?
I would live in this if I had it placed on some land where I could also have a large detached garage/shop space with extra storage. The big difference between this and older mobile homes is the quality and workmanship. This place is nice!
I would certainly want a bit more closet space for hanging clothes.
Only in Tampa, Florida you say? Pity. there are places all over British Columbia, with our fabulous scenery where this tiny home would be wonderful. Gulf Islands is one place I could think of. No need to ship in lumber, etc. and tradespeople to build a home, just a flat deck crane and this house. There are some lovely small lakes around Princeton, B.C. where this would work.
This is great. Some might want to tweak it but given it starts out with two bedrooms and bathrooms, its great. If you have kids, weekend guests, use as a retirement home. I’m saving this for my list of homes when I downsize to a rural property.
The cost is $170,000.00
I like the home and think it would be nice in a retirement park. The only real problem I found that I would do without the second bathroom. I would rather have a bigger kitchen and use the extra bathroom made into a closet.
James (and Alex), it’s really interesting that w/ all the questions posed on this website re: the cost of this home, neither of you have answered those questions! I even emailed Escape and have not received a reply. What IS the big secret about the cost for those units and why no answers??
Hi Mary, I’m not sure, maybe the price is undecided yet. But it will all be announced soon when it comes up for sale it will be listed at this link with the price and more details: https://www.escapetraveler.net/sale and I will also be sure to let you all know when it’s available. So far, it’s just a one-off model. There are no definitive plans of it being something they offer all of the time, but we will see.
The house i live in is just over 700 sq. Ft. and it’s over 100 year’s old.
I’m in the market for a small/tiny home. I want this one. In order for it to be considered I have to have a price. Can I get at least an estimate? I really need to take it off my list if it’s too much. PLEASE give me a ball park idea. I LOVE this!
Hi Deborah. You can contact Escape here >>> https://www.escapetraveler.net/. Most of their models are around $99,000/
Is there a phone number to inquire about this 12×54 mobile home? Thanks.
Hi Vicki. You can call 844-696-3722
Its a nice mobile home. However, in FL shade is essential to avoid heating with glass walls at the living area.
Beside that a covered porch would be a great addition for some outdoor living at daytime.
Love the idea of a covered porch!
Only thing wrong with kitchen no counter space
