    I would hate to even think about how much this (not so) little baby would cost. Looks pretty darned expensive to me.
    But sleeping four, if you factor 2 in the upstairs sleeping loft, then you are going to have to somehow find a way for 2 people to sleep downstairs. Couchs that double as beds maybe. And with that there comes privacy concerns.

    Having said that it is quite charming in its own way. Could I live here? Not any more with ongoing knee problems. I hate this getting old lark.

    August 26, 2019, 4:46 pm

    Nice design and quite attractive but just how big is this house as it doesn’t seem at all tiny. The cropped or resized bathroom photos make it difficult to get a sense of dimension although it would have to be very narrow, no more than around 32 to 34″ wide to tuck under the stairs as it does. Is that a window by the commode and what is the ceiling high hatch or opening in the inaccessibly high ceiling of the great room?

    And having said all that I’m very much in agreement with Eric but with an aside go him that the alternative to this getting old park is still very unappealing despite the aches and pains. 😉

      I’m looking into seeing if I can be genetically manipulated into being another Mork from Ork. Should solve all my problems… sort of. 😁

      It looks to me like the exterior wall may jut out a bit where the bathroom(s) are…(?) It IS hard to tell from the pics. They say it is a 1-1/2 bath, so there must be another ‘powder room’ hiding somewhere that we aren’t shown. One thing that would be nice in these home tours are more floorplans – but the lister or homeowner doesn’t always supply those I gather. This needs a bit more privacy to claim that it really ‘sleeps 4’ – sure a fold out couch will do the job, but it’s maybe sufficient for one night’s visitor(s) and that’s about it. Nice looking place, but I would want a little interior re-design or make that outdoor area better insulated and a possible sleeping area….

    I find this example of a, “tiny house” safer and more secure against severe weather as it appears to be set on a permanent foundation. I also appreciate the high ceilings. This eliminates the giant coffin like sensation one gets from the usual, “tiny house.

    • Eric
      August 27, 2019, 8:26 pm

      …but, one could always have a coffin break couldn’t they? 😁

      Most tiny houses aren’t actually that small and will typically have a interior ceiling height of 10-11 feet. Compared to the typical RV that’ll be below 7 feet or your typical single level household that’ll be 8-9 feet on average.

      It’s mainly only the loft spaces that are really confining… So, unless you were referring to the loft, it’s most likely the much wider width that’s really making this seem much bigger, as it’s around twice as wide as most tiny houses and that’s a bigger difference than the ceiling height, which is only a few feet higher at one end of the house but slopes lower at the other end…

      Being able to have the kitchen, even a single person width dining table, and stairs right next to each other but still have room to walk between them is not a luxury you get in most tiny houses that would have mostly long and narrow layouts that would at most have two things next to each other that you could walk between… But those are usually restricted by needing to meet road legal size limits but a home you don’t need to move all the time can be much wider…

    This looks bigger than my current home in Queens, NY housing my family of 5. LOL.

    • James D.

      Probably is, lots of NYC borough homes were built up to over a century ago. Over 600 are actually the size of a modern Tiny House and the rest either have been split up to house multiple families or are so badly designed that you have less space even though the building is bigger…

    I think this is an excellent set-up for a couple or solo person. I’m talking full time living. I dream about tiny house living but not with a loft you can’t stand up in. Way too impractical. I look at my city relatives and how they continued living in walk-ups at 90! I think it will keep me in better shape. But having to shimmy bent in half, in and out of bed, that would be a deal breaker. My dream would be to somehow get in a half bath in the upstairs bedroom for Pee O’clock, if you get my drift.
    The porch is great. Having a stellar outside area to enjoy and big windows, to me is key to making tiny living doable. I’d change the black cover scheme, but that’s just me. I like the sereneness of white.

    • Eric
      August 27, 2019, 8:28 pm

      So totally agree on the bending lark getting in and out of bed. Especially for us older folks.

    Hi Alex and “tiny” viewers-
    Am a naysayer on this cabin. I have lots of likes for the interior, tall loft, the full-size appliances and deck.
    But- The entry seemed formal and not welcoming. Perhaps it’s just be the photo, but that’s the view provided. I saw two views of the loft bed and apparently a single bathroom. Not enough info.
    I’m with the lady who was up for a loft, but not down with crawling to get in bed.
    Beautifully done, nicely appointed, and not at all for me.
    Thanks much for posting, Alex. Each view gives more ideas and options.

    It’s an impressive small house with lots of style! Love that dark exterior. In looking toward the kitchen, if you move the back door to where the back window is, it would allow you to have an L-shaped kitchen. Put in an island that is as long as the counter along the wall and you would have just as much seating…maybe more…as that small table. Put the island on wheels so you have options of how close to the wall you want to put it. And it would be completely awesome looking! This is very comfy for a single couple as a home and a small family on vacation with the kids sleeping downstairs. Everyone can imagine their own tweaks to the design, I’m sure, and this is my suggestion.

    I just love everything about the house! Beautiful done. Could live here with my children.

    It’s a nice space, but with that much square footage I would like to have more privacy, somewhere to get away (aside from the bathroom). I don’t want tiny cubicles, but for long term living by more than one person, it would be nice to have the option of a bit of separation. You know, when your spouse is jabbering on the phone (for example), and you’d rather not hear every word. As a vacation rental, that’s not as important.

    Did you build this yourself, and if not, who was the contractor who did build it?

    This is an awesome small house and I love it!! It is one of a couple that I would love to live in…if only I could get my husband to want it as well.

      I bet you can get him to come around. When you find awesome ideas for your dream tiny house save them. (I have pinterest board) Keep showing him all the amazing & ingenuitive construction ideas. My husband wasnt to keen on the idea at first either. I got him to come around by promising he’d still get his own space. Separate man cave or shop nearby. Could be small shipping container, a tough shed, another smaller tiny house, or a even a camper. Their are lots of options.

    I love these “not so tiny” small houses. I want to have a small place of my own and the idea of being shut in a small box in the colder winter months is definitely not appealing. 1000-1200 sq ft fits my ideal just fine. And I absolutely love white interiors and lots of windows. I tend to get a bit Claustrophobic. Thanks so much for sharing some that are a bit bigger.

  • Heather H. J.

    I love this design! We will beginning construction some what soon on our THOF (Tiny House On Foundation) If we werent using shipping containers this would be a perfect option for us.

    By merely looking at these beautiful tiny houses I’m inspired to have my own. Anyway, I will be retiring in two years. Hopefully I will be able to build my own tiny house by then.

    Great design. would make a wonderful year round home for any one who didn’t want a large home. As a single person, family of one, this would be great. Roomy enough for a couple of dogs or cats or one of each and life is good.

    I would love to live in this. Single person with small dog. It’s perfect. Is there anyway to see floor plans and possibly purchase said plans. Or, and this is the big question, is there a builder in either Austin Texas or near Seattle Washington who would be interested in building it?

  • Milena Horan Klemens

    I love this house. I would love an estimate. Plans, or any information you can give me. Thank you so much.

  • Lou Baltz

    The house looks great. The only problem that I saw is you have to be very tall to use the microwave and toaster. Loved the overall plan.

  • Carolan S ONeill

    Seriously need to rearrange the pictures. Weird looking at the shower and the kitchen cabinet. Maybe a pic of the kitchen showing the shelving and a separate pic of the whole bath. Also a pic of the half bath would be useful. Since the porch seems quite large a small table with chairs would be ideal for outside dining or a friendly board game time.

  • Chip Carney
    October 11, 2020, 11:13 am

    Is this design plan available for sale? I would love to get more details regarding dimensions and build specifics. Can you share the builder’s information?


  • CJ Burlingame

    It appears the full bath has to be off the deck/patio where the jut out is. Not a great floor plan. The kitchen could have been three sided near where the stairs starts and there would still be room behind it to have a main floor bedroom right under the loft bedroom. Long one sided kitchens are normally not a good use of space.

    I have followed the website for 3 plus years and almost all bathroom pictures have have the toilet seat up…That is so yuck according to our household thoughts .Just a point of view. Keep up the good work and great articles.
