    First, am sorry they lost their home. Sequoia National Forest is where I live. Fires are common here. This home is beautiful! The kitchen is real nice. Design is classy and thought through. Perfect in my eyes. Love the entire inside and outside.

  • Marsha Cowan June 30, 2018, 11:58 pm

    Absolutely beautiful! I love the design and decorating, and the homey, cozy feel to it. What a beautiful family! The loft area is cleverly done, and the bathroom is lovely. I am happy for you all to have such a wonderful home.

  • Betty July 1, 2018, 12:15 am

    Love it. Happy for this family!😆

  • Michael L July 1, 2018, 12:35 am

    Your new home is amazing… Probably the nicest I’ve seen here. Sorry to hear about your loss. God bless.

  • Diane July 2, 2018, 12:08 am

    Beautiful home!

    I am not sure I believe this story. They might very well have lost their home to a fire. But there are absolutely no rooms for the 4 kids, no toys and no beds for them, in this house. It looks like it is only occupied by two adults. It is like they do not live in the house. Something is a bit fishy about this story. However the house is nice.

    • James D. July 3, 2018, 7:15 pm

      No, we are just not given all the details…

      But we do know there’s plenty of space. Most tiny houses are a lot smaller than 400 Sq Ft but this is 410 Sq Ft… There is a loft that can easily sleep 3-4 children, not counting the living room which can easily sleep one or more, and if the photos of the people in the house are the actual family then it looks like it’s just the mom and 4 kids. So that may be all they need for now and they can always make different arrangements when the kids get older…

      Unlike some, this family still has a property to place their home on and so that also means they have room to expand and add things later…

      Even just counting just the THOW, there’s plenty of interior and exterior storage throughout… The photos are just taken before it was delivered so we don’t see their stuff actually in the house.

      Besides, in the facebook comments, Kathie Mcadams indicates she met the family when the project was started. So that’s at least one independent indication that it’s all real…

    Believe photos taken before delivery so kids probably not the he clients. Also suspect new owners quite capable of furnishing house themselves. Loft plus gooseneck (could be office but could also be bedroom) could easily sleep 4 at least and as the occupier of a 37ft THoW that sleeps 4 adults I can assure you that 41ft can easily sleep 6 incl 4 kids. Especially as there is no details given about ages, some could easily be teenagers who have other sleeping arrangements. With no details given it makes no odds, but it is a lovely THoW and a practical design. I noted no real space for 6 people to sit and eat so it is possible that all six won’t be living full time in it anyway. I would add my own furniture and lose the entertainment centre (don’t see the point in TV, mainly rubbish and a waste of time) to suit my requirements so for all we know the furniture in the photos could be no more than window dressing for the pictures. Good luck to them in their new home. It did occur to me that if they made it a requirement for areas regularly subjected to bush fires that all new homes were THoWs it would be much safer and cheaper for both inhabitants (tow house away if fires approach, no loss of property plus you can continue to live in your house until the emergency is over and then return to the land) and the insurance companies who must lose a fortune everytime fires burn down the properties in the area, and to judge from newspaper articles in season this seems to be an annual occurrence in some cities.

    What happened to the earlier posts???????

  • Vivian July 3, 2018, 12:42 am

    I would imagine that the two boys share one of the queen-sized beds. The girl might either share with her mother, or stay in the nook right next to it. It was exactly what my family did when a hurricane took out my family home.

    It’s a beautiful home and a great layout. The cost is actually lower than I expected. BTW, I adore that ceiling fan. Still, there are a lot of high-end things here, that fan, the lighting, some of the materials and appliances. Without those, I bet you could nearly half the cost.

    Losing a home can break your heart with what you’ve lost, irreplaceable things. But this is lovely, and I hope you make more beautiful memories.

    This is a beautiful tiny house with plenty of room for a couple to live it and still has some space. It appears to be very roomy and the bedroom I could even stand up in it ( A HUGE plus ). One of those that is best to be pulled somewhere and parked for a long period of time. Would not want to have it towed to many times, just the size of it.
    Thank you for sharing this wonderful tiny home with all of us.

    Beautiful home! How wonderful to have a place to call home so soon after loosing everything. My family and I lost everything in the witch creek fires of San Diego 2007. Our journey took us through two weeks living in a hotel, then with friends of family, then two rentals, until we finally (two years later) were done with the process of moving into a home we built on the lot of another fire survivor. It is an exhausting process and I must say you don’t understand what home means to you until you loose it all by way of natural disaster. Looking back I wish we had build a more modest home and had become less caught up in the trend that seemed common to all us fire survivors, at the time, to build bigger;perhaps to somehow make up for all that was lost. It was common to hear, “well at least you can replace most of it, the material things”, but there are so many personal items that you simply can’t and you go on for some time mourning that loss. The most important thing is that this place feels like home to them and they learn to let go and move on from the loss. May this family enjoy this tiny home and rebuilt their lives anew. Don’t let any negative comments get you down, only you know what this journey means to you. Best of luck!

  • Brenda R July 6, 2018, 5:56 pm

    I understand gratitude for a place to live after losing everything to a fire. But I have lived in a 1-bathroom home as a family of 5, and, well, it wasn’t pretty. Goddess, bless them.
