Family’s Life in their Beautiful Tiny Home

Wonder what family life in a tiny home looks like? Check out this family’s wonderful and whimsical tiny house built by Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses.

The roof line resembles a wave and swoops over dormers on either end of the house. Half-circle windows follow the contour and allow in natural light. The metal roofing has a purple hue, which compliments the bright blue trim around the bottom of the house. Horizontal pine clapboards and uneven shingles cover the middle of the home.

Inside, however, the colors are far more muted. Pine covers the walls and floors, and creates most of the furniture. The kitchen includes open shelving, a fridge, and a small oven. A nifty pull-out/collapsible table sits in the living space near the couch decorated with cloud-shaped pillows. Upstairs you’ll see something very unusual: two lofts connected by a glass bridge. The childrens’ bedroom is on one end with toys and couch beds, and the parents’ queen-sized bed is on the other end of the walkway. For more information about what it’s like living in a family tiny home, check out their blog.

    I love this THoW. I love the deck, and am wondering if it folds up when moving? This inside is the perfect size. Everything about this Tiny House is perfect. Thank you for sharing.

    • Robert M Worth Jr March 7, 2016, 5:07 pm

      Look carefully and you’ll see the hinges attached to the THoW as well as to the deck sections. Thus, they do fold up against the body. What I didn’t see, however, is how they hold it in place. Maybe with either a giant rubber band or shipping tape wrapped around the vehicle. Generally, when decks fold, there are clamping mechanisms visible on the outside walls. Not so here. Even strong springs under the decking wouldn’t hold those planks up when traveling down a hiway at hiway speeds.

      • Baillie March 7, 2016, 5:41 pm

        There are clamps on the corners and loops on the deck to hook it too. Everything has been thought out!
        Beautiful home! I couldn’t live in loft I need more height to a bed than that but that’s just me. It’s one of the nicest tiny homes I’ve seen! :-)

      • Evelyn Kinb March 7, 2016, 5:50 pm

        There are eye bolts on deck and fasteners for them on trailer. They kind of blend I .

      • Bigfoot March 7, 2016, 8:15 pm

        If you look at the bottom two pics, there are turnbuckles just above where the decks would terminate if folded. One end is captive & the other has a hook which I would assume mates to a ring or something on the deck edge. I’m unable to find the attachment points on the decks from the pictures given. I did not see any info about the decks on their blog.

  • Ann March 7, 2016, 5:12 pm

    Now that is one of the nicest tiny homes I’ve seen. I wouldn’t be very comfortable on the “couch”, though. And I will not have my bed in a space I’d have to crawl into. Too old for that! Other than that, I like the open spaces it has and the light wood, steps, etc. Beautiful outside as well. : )

  • LouAnn March 7, 2016, 5:28 pm

    Love the bridge between the lofts ! Perfect for a family with children.

  • Carol March 7, 2016, 5:38 pm

    I have looked at a lot of your Tiny House you send to me by email. I have a few favourites but this one has to be the best so far. I never thought of the bridge between the two lofts..What a brilliant idea. Its a wasted space otherwise. They have made the most of space. Good design.
    The window in the bathroom. What a great idea. Attention to detail.
    Excellent.

  • podmate5 March 7, 2016, 6:08 pm

    One of the nicest THOW I’ve seen. Would prefer a soft sofa to the bench, but that’s an easy fix. Just beautiful!

  • Suzie@Suzie'sView March 7, 2016, 6:15 pm

    That is simply adorable!

  • Patricia Turner March 7, 2016, 6:34 pm

    This place is so pretty and unique on the outside. I like the half moon Windows that fit so well with the roofline. The inside is really functional,, and I love the glass bridge. Safe, and it keeps the kids connected to their parents

  • Yvonne J March 7, 2016, 7:06 pm

    I love this tiny house inside and out. I did see some Giant Hooks on the body to hold the deck when folded up for traveling. Look closely!! Do you build them in Texas?

  • Kristina H Nadreau March 7, 2016, 7:21 pm

    interesting and attractive exterior.

  • Bigfoot March 7, 2016, 8:53 pm

    I really like the exterior design & how they utilized the different materials, textures, colors, & shapes as they work so well together. The roof line alone sets this unit head & shoulders above most of what I’ve seen. Nice! The corresponding feeling of the ceiling inside gives it a unique feel. Almost like your in a spaceship. Lofts for sleeping aren’t my cup of tea, if it was, this would score at the top of the list for sure with that ceiling & catwalk. Bay window in the bathroom with shelving, yes! Fold up/down decks – I can’t understand why more people don’t incorporate this into their designs.

    I got a weird vibe looking at the couch & pull out table next to it. There are all the great curved lines with the ceiling & these things just look uncomfortable & out of place. The sharp straight edges stand out to my eye. The kitchen countertop is nice but I found the continuation of the top all the way down the end of the cabinet to be distracting & busy. One other thing that bothered me was the top stair tread sticking out into the aisle/doorway. I’m tall & this looks like a headache waiting to happen. Please note, these are just my opinions & personal tastes, that’s ALL.

    It’s nice watching people bring their dreams to fruition & this unit is overall way cool !

  • Gabrielle Charest March 7, 2016, 10:37 pm

    The exterior of this home is just plain fun! The interior seems to fit the family’s needs perfectly. Great job.

  • Jamie March 8, 2016, 12:32 am

    Anyone know what the hatch is in the kitchen ceiling?

    • Bigfoot March 8, 2016, 6:49 am

      Made me look again:) I did not notice it the first time & a second look gave me a chance to appreciate some of the other things again like the portholes. re hatch ? Maybe when the kids are real hungry they just pop down out of the ceiling. Got me stumped.

      • Lisa Hartford March 8, 2016, 4:08 pm

        “pop down out of the ceiling” !!! LOL!!! The visuals on this… :D
        You’re making me laugh here, Bigfoot.

  • Brian March 8, 2016, 7:24 am

    This is great! I think the space is used very well. My only thought would be a tub instead of a shower. That is just personal preference though. I see THOWs and some seem to generally look the same. Quite frankly, they are seemingly becoming a bit mainstream and dare I say “cookie cutter”. Not this one though. It has a well thought out floor plan and the outside design is unique. I really like this overall. Being a woodworker I especially like the counter top.

    To possibly help in answering some questions I read in the comments, or at least offer my opinion. I do see eye hooks on the side of the deck in several locations in order to hook to the turnbuckles for travel. As far as the hatch in the kitchen. The only thing that comes to mind is a possible fire escape route for the children? Mom or Dad being in the kitchen and the children being able to get down to them in their arms. IDK, just a thought on that one.

    Have a great day everyone!

  • Deb March 8, 2016, 10:12 am

    Wow! Love this design, inside and out. I appreciate architecture that is beautiful and functional. I’d add more cushions to the couch and make the armrests more curved. I’d also add trough sink with a vanity to the bathroom. Everything is a perfect height for me ( I’m tiny at 5′ too, lol). The attachable deck is a sweet bonus!

  • Deb March 8, 2016, 10:19 am

    I just saw how they attached the deck. The deck has brackets and lifts up and then it’s held up by hooks and eyes. Very clever!

    Have a great day!

  • Lisa Hartford March 8, 2016, 4:16 pm

    Talk about snazzy digs! What a place!
    The only thing I’d add would be a slab of covered firm foam and a back bolster to the “sofa” there. My posterior is too bony to take a wooden sofa. The clear catwalk above keeps the space feeling open but allows for the function of flooring; nice one. Love the Mason Jar pullout storage, and that garlic planter is the best I’ve ever seen for kitchen utensils.

  • Denise March 10, 2016, 9:16 am

    This is lovely, both inside and out. There is something about wood – despite this one not having pine on the walls – that brings a warmth that white walls never can. It is very well designed except I am wondering with a small child still in diapers, how do they keep the babe from crawling through the guy wire on the glass bridge? That to me is a concern.

    I really, really like the whole interior- it seems too spacious to be a tiny house on wheels and the fact that the bathroom is on the opposite end of kitchen is a big plus. The stove tucked into that small spot is perfect and I bet keeps the house absolutely cozy and is in a safe spot without taking up too much room.

    In the bathroom – SO nice to see a sink in there so one isn’t forced to wash their hands in the kitchen, it has a lot of natural light making it very inviting to be in and perfect for plants to thrive, however, I will never understand why folks go through all the trouble to build one of these stuctures and then put a composting toilet in it. Who wants to have to dump their waste outside on a regular basis and deal with the urine diverter – what a hassle. And what happens if a person is sick to their stomach – do they go outside to take care of that? With a flush toilet, you just push a button, done. But I digress. :)

    The outside is absolutely beautiful and a lovely eye draw.

    All said, I give this one an A-. For me it hit a 97% ratio of perfect, the only imperfect being the toilet. For this family, it obviously is working and I trust they love their house so that is what matters.

  • Jean Garrison March 10, 2016, 12:47 pm

    Love it! Finally some good clothes storage. I really like the cat walk to the other loft.
