Family of Four’s Farmhouse-style Tiny House with Amazing Outdoor Space

Yup! The kids have their very own playground just steps away from their tiny home. Too cool!

In the front, they have a bench and even a tiny little pool with a swan float.

This family gets it! It’s about being outside!

They have a very nice kitchen too, which you can see in the video tour below.

As for sleeping, the parents sleep on this wonderful sofa bed and the girls sleep in the upstairs sleeping loft. They explain why in the video. 🙂

    Awesome pawsome, that’s great for them, but not everyone has land, or property to park, or have their to tiny house oñ, so how do you go about living without a car,or drivable trailer house????

      Just like buying a full sized home, you have to Match up your personal wants, needs and circumstances with your build or purchase. Then it will work for you.

    This is really well designed and beautifully built. Sure, it’s a lot bigger and fancier than many of us can afford, and they are fortunate to have an amazing setting. But it’s an inspiration. I love seeing happy families living good lives in smallish homes.

    Just beautiful. Does look like a model. Decorated so pretty like a dream home.
    The newest of course will wear off. (Only been living there 6 months). All the pretty decor will be less.. The tiny house will become funtional. Revisit them in 1 year. See how things are going. I believe in less is best. Having lived in a 500 sq ft cabin in the mountains and have lived on a 40 ft boat with 350 ft living space. It worked because we want it too and never got tired of small space or lack of stuff.
    Price on this tiny house was shocking at least to me. For many I believe the concept is in lowering living cost. It would make a very special vacation house rental.

    for some living “tiny” is also an environmental statement. It isn’t about necessarily living for less. Some tiny homes are expensive because, like anything custom built or made, its expensive.

    this home looks like its all about living outside and many people live in areas where that is possible. Some also may live in areas where a “second’ home, on the parental unit’s property must be kept to a small foot print due to zoning regulations.

    Looks lovely. Hope they have many happy years there.

    As much as I love looking at tiny homes, it seems it’d be better to go with an RV, if you want to tow it, or a mobile home if you don’t. If you’re going to park it and live there full time a mobile home would be much roomier and comfortable, those kids aren’t going to stay little for long.

      I think the customizable nature of Tiny Homes is what makes them more attractive to many people over an RV or mobile home. Most of those are mass produced, so you get little say in the design unless you renovate it (which people do, with much success!). But if you DIY a tiny house from the trailer-up, or get one made by a builder to your specific needs, you have a lot more control over the details.

      Mobile home? Really?? They are notoriously “lacking” in insulation so that becomes an issue. Especially in Winter, but even Summer. And as for roomier and comfort, well if its towed then it has to comply with road width rules so there isn’t much gain there.

        Mobile homes are not at all like they used to be. They’ve been upgraded so there is more and better insulation. Old models are expensive to heat and cool.

        A mobile home is usually a one-time deal. A qualified mobile home mover gets the necessary permits. It used to be, and may still be the case, that in Iowa when a mobile home gets towed it has to be done by someone who moves homes. It wasn’t an issue at all to tow. I don’t know where you get your information but it isn’t correct. You may be making statements about how things used to be quite some time ago.

          “Mobile homes are not at all like they used to be.”

          Yes and no, after HUD was enacted in 1976 they became Manufactured Houses and under HUD had to follow residential building codes just like site built houses but federally regulated instead of local.

          It’s anything before 1976 that’s technically a Mobile Home and a Manufactured House for anything after but people just still tend to call them Mobile Homes even though, except for the permanent chassis that allows them to be moved remains, the rest of the entire structure is now built like residential homes and they can go as large as over 3000 Sq Ft for the quad wides and look no different than a traditional home on a foundation, which they can not only be placed but can be transitioned to be recognized as a regular real estate house and may often fall under that if remodeled because that voids the HUD certification and would only remain if it gets put under local code requirements instead.

          However, not all are built equally and there’s still mobile homes from before 1976. The lack of regulation of those older units left many of them to be poorly built and would suffer many of the same issues as RV’s of requiring lots of maintenance over time and poor energy efficiency.

          There’s also still manufactures making older style Mobile Homes and the term can also apply to motorized RV’s. While, even those that are built to HUD, may only be meeting the minimum requirements and so not all will be good examples of how they can be built today.

          Something to keep in mind is even with code requirements there’s still a range that anything can be built to and most construction will still usually lean towards the minimum threshold for compliance as that’s a way to help keep costs lower. While others may go up to multiple times past those requirements but they tend to be up to extremely expensive.

          Manufacturing is also effected by location. So they will optimize the construction to fit the location it will be placed. However, that also means the structure may not perform as well in a different location, with different climate and weather conditions. For example, something that will be placed in Florida has to meet higher wind resistance and structural standards than they would in most other states. So that’s another reason they aren’t all equal and the same.

          Finally, another thing to keep in mind is many commentators are not all from the states. So there’s also the difference of what are called mobile homes in other countries, which are not following the same system as the ones in the states.

          Park Homes in the UK, for example, are more similar to Manufactured Houses. Different countries also have different regulations and codes they follow. So there can be some confusion over what someone means by mobile home when we have international community commenting as we do here. Along with the fact that not everything on the market is the same…

    Oh wow! What a beautiful family! What an amazing home! It’s so beautiful! It’s laid out with a wonderful floor plan, and I think having a sofa bed simplifies everyone’s life that much more. I cannot get over the wonderful, fabulous outdoor spaces. . .just amazing. Lots of great ideas to think about.

    WOW, I wonder how many gallons of water that HUGE black tank holds! I also wonder about the treatments required for that water. I’m looking at this sort of set up on a piece of land in Arizona (US). If a rain catchment system could be used too, it would help with the amount of water than has to be delivered to this house. I’m not sure I would have built a tiny-house on wheels however, since this is on the parent’s property, I might have just built a tiny house on a foundation that would enhance the value of their property if this tiny isn’t going with you to your new property when it is ready. I love tiny houses, but the 8′ width is such a restriction overall. This is well laid out and I’m sure the outdoor space is amazing to keep the cabin fever away for much of the year. Winter time, however, may prove to be very difficult depending on the weather. Good luck, and job well done.
