This post contains affiliate links.

This is the ESCAPE Vista tiny house that starts under $40,000. Outside, you’ll notice the 25′ x 8.5′ home wrapped in vertical cedar siding and nearly made of windows: four huge Low-E windows provide a view from the outside-in and the inside-out.

Inside, the house is open and airy, with lightly colored aspen wood lining every surface. To keep you warm in the winter, the house has insulation made from recycled products, and if you want an off-the-grid lifestyle, solar options are available. You can even upgrade to a queen bed, washer/dryer combo, dishwasher, and stone counter tops. It also comes with under-the-bed storage, built-ins, and door-less kitchen shelving for a minimalist look and feel.

    Love it. Simple clean lines with ample storage and wonderful windows for lots of light.

    If I were single, I’d buy this in a minute. I absolutely love it. I’d have to buy lots of privacy shades, though, and would eliminate a few windows or make them much smaller and have more cabinets installed. I would also need a normal sized cooktop and oven or range with a microwave/ventilation hood above.

    Lovely. Are any of the Escape Products available in Canada, specifically, Ontario or Quebec?

    This looks to be a great Tiny House with excellent design. All on one level and at a price point that is manageable with such quality. Escape seems to have come up with another excellent design with a reasonable price point. Good Work Guys !

    Love the vista. Please let me know price with following:
    Queen bed, can it make a sofa?
    Wash/dry combo
    Shades for bedroom

    Thank you!

    I agree. Escape has come up with another excellent design. The Vista tiny house is actually 20′ long. Escape includes the hitch when they state the length of their Traveler line of tiny homes. I suspect the version we see here includes some options that bump the price over $40,000, but it does offers some good design ideas.

    Brrrrrr… all that glass. All that snow. No window coverings. No visible heating source… brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Not for me.

      I agree with Eric; anyone who designs or builds a bed surrounded by glass, even so-called “insulated glass”, in a northern climate should expect to slumber in an arctic sleeping bag and wear a stocking cap. A tent would be warmer. Also, what gives the frame rigidity? Is there a welded steel frame?

    • Carol
      February 8, 2016, 11:23 am

      I agree. Not for me.
      Way too many windows and the full size cabinets I would turn into a clothes closet.

      • Paul Cana

        I agree: Nobody lives here as evidenced by the lack of window treatments. That bed area would be a refrigerator with cold air falling off the glass all night, and one would need sunglasses once the sun hits that snow.

        The “Pantry” is the closet space you’re wanting. The open shelves in the kitchen aren’t as useful to me as upper cabinets.

          Definitely my first thought, cold outside, all the windows, cold inside.

    Love this!!! Only change I would make for myself is to install a little larger fridge with separate door fort freezer. Since I am single and plan to stay that way, the bed could be reduced to a single to make room for the larger fridge. Love all the huge windows!

    Obviously Quality finishes inside, but with all the light/blond coloured wood, you don’t need all the (excessive) windows to keep it open feeling. Either eliminate some windows in the bedroom area or make them near the ceiling & gain some much need wall space. I would substitute a washer/dryer under the counter instead of the refrigerator & put a larger refrigerator (10 cf range) either on top of or under. cupboards. That size would not take up the full width of the existing. cupboard configuration & leave some room for hanging things as well .as the cupboards under or above the refrigerator. Without the counter to ceiling windows in the kitchen, but again, shallower windows at ceiling height, you cud install some small upper cabinets, or open shelving to maintain an open feeling. Also I would used a pocket door or a sliding barn door into the bathroom which would allow some use of the exterior (kitchen side) of the door & give privacy. There is a decent size functional window in the bathroom above the sink, the full opaque panel in the door is unnecessary to have sufficient light in the bathroom.

    Like it although they put a bit too many windows or they use tinted glass. I would fold up the bed against the rear wall which would eliminate the back window and create some space for a decent living area and keep table and chairs for dining. Otherwise its fine. Well done.

    Lovely, clean lined and classy with a Scandinavian vibe. I love the birch (?) cabinetry and walls, and the one floor living. But, my one concern, I’m afraid it would be like living in a fishbowl. I JUST returned from 3 weeks in Seattle. I wish I had known about the “big show” so I could have arranged to be there at that time instead! I have followed Escape’s last few houses and they just keep getting better! Keep up the great work!!

  • Larry Schoenemann

    Well done, like the open free feeling that is projected here. Note that I like a lot of the ideas expressed above, but that would be their own design.

    I love it! I love the windows, you could add quilted roman shades for warmth. & yes, where is the heater and how is it the ceiling appears slanted? Perhaps a roof unit could provide ac/heat. I want one that is capable to connecting to a 2nd tiny home for my husband! There is a rod in the closet with movable shelves for hanging clothing. I love the open shelves – I would have to control my clutter for sure!

    • Eric
      March 5, 2016, 2:54 pm

      Barb… the roof “appears” slanted because they have used a wide angled lens to get as much of the construction in view as possible. Obviously they either can’t afford, or don’t know about, wide angle tilt shift lenses. That could have eliminated the “angled” distortion. And yes, they are most certainly not cheap. Last I heard, many moons ago, you would have been paying $US 11, 000 and up. For 1 single lens. Is it any wonder that not many people have and/or use one?

    Beautiful. Obviously this home (or weekend getaway) would be perfect in a clearing surrounded by woods, where the only neighbours are the cast of Bambi. Build a nice deck and you’ld have perfection. It’s not for an urban location. Quit kvetching everyone, ditch your extraneous possessions, cuddle up to someone warm (or a loyal dog) and enjoy falling asleep with the stars and waking in sunlight.

  • Barbara

    If I were single, I’d buy this one or the Traveler. They will work with customers to design it just the way you want; I spent a good deal of time with their people at the Tampa RV show in January. SO nice to work with! Want fewer windows? (I want more cabinets instead) Done! A Murphy bed – my choice also – done! You decide, they can make it happen. Nice folks!

  • Gabrielle Charest

    Love all those windows! You can always use insulated drapes or panels if that is what you need for privacy or warmth. I just love the option of being part of your surroundings when your windows are bare.

  • Nancy N

    Love this one especially the large windows

  • Kathy

    Gorgeous, but I would feel too exposed with all that glass.

  • Angel
    March 17, 2016, 1:15 pm

    I like this but a stove next to the fridge is not a great idea. The place I rent right now is setup like this and whenever I cook or bake especially the fridge runs the whole time.

  • Vince

    The math doesn’t work. 8.5 x 25 = 212.5 where did the extra 56.5 sq feet come from?

  • Rhett

    I don’t see $40,000 worth of home. You’d do better to buy a double wide trailer. Arguably, you could get more home from a bank’s short sale. The entire point of the Tiny House Movement is AFFORDABILITY!

    • Peggy
      June 10, 2016, 7:18 pm

      Well, that’s certainly one point, but not the only one. I don’t see how you can reduce the price much without building it yourself and not everyone has the skills/abilities to do that. Yes, I’ve looked at trailers and they are cheaper. But they are also cookie cutter and mostly of un-natural materials. I guess it’s a matter of choice.

  • Chuck

    I love this design esp all the windows and the light wood throughout.
    I think my cat Charlie and I would be very happy in something like this.

  • Chuck
    June 9, 2016, 6:21 pm

    For full time living in something like this one would need a full size frig or you would be running to the store every day for something.
    And, where is the cooktop?

    After reading a few post about the price for the escape units. These THOW’s are built with quality. I have done research upon research on tiny homes and nothing seems to compare. With the escapes you are buying a tiny house that is RVIA certified which is extremely rare for a tiny house on wheels. So for most of you who are like me, you are going to want to travel and explorer the world. You might have a huge problem trying to park your tiny house in an rv park, but seeing that escapes are RVIA certified you can park in almost any rv park. You can buy other tiny homes with more room and probably less money but you will also have to either have land already or buy land which would be pricey. With the escapes you can travel and park almost anywhere. So it just depends on what you plan on doing with your tiny house as far as if you think the price is too steep. For me it’s worth it.

    Why do they never show the bathroom on this one? I love the style and the openness but would love to see how they did the bathroom!

    Too small for me, but very nicely done with those huge windows to help reduce the feeling of being boxed in.

  • Paul Larsen

    You can spend a lot more that 40K on a cheaply built commercial RV than on a sturdily built tiny home, This is a great design with main floor sleeping. Only thing I would change is smaller windows for privacy and cold Canadian climate,
