    If it was me, I’d have a special cover made for the front of the tiny home to make it more aerodynamic and mitigate the buffeting by wind when travelling. Possibly cost $100/150 but would pay for itself in petrol/gas savings and reduced stress when you are driving. Just my 2c worth.

    Wow folks, go have a looksee at the first link at bottom of article. Heaps of extra photos… and larger too. Bigger is always better… when looking a photos. It is quite amazing what they’ve done. Especially the light fittings.

    Kudos guys, kudos.

    Ha! This is the total opposite of the last house I praised for re-cycling, DIY and all that. HOWEVER. WOW! I just want to keep walking all around it enjoying the fabulous layout and design. Probably one of the prettiest tiny houses I have ever seen. It is clearly the result of a huge amount of consideration as to the “gestalt” of each piece of wood, each fitting, each light fixture. Love it lots.

    Very cool THOW. The craftsmanship is beautiful. The roof line, the decks, the ceiling are my favorite things. Id love to park this on a nice piece of property over looking some water & trees & sit out on that deck all day. Way to bring the outdoors in/indoors out!

    Ok theres no pictures of the bathroom or the amazing sounding soaker tub on the roof top deck. Or the upper deck access through a hidden door. I dont understand why those pictures just weren’t taken. That is disappointing. I would really like to see. The written details sound amazing, to bad we cant see it to believe it.😕

      The builder has an instagram account if you want to check out all the photos they’ve posted from the build process to final product.

      There’s also a few video tours on youtube… Luke Thill, the teenager known for building his own tiny house, did a tour video on this one called “Amazing Tiny House with Rooftop Tub”… and you can check it out on his channel…

    HECK YEAH! Love it! Can’t afford it, probably couldn’t really live in it, but a pure joy to contemplate.

    Were the light fixtures made from drinking glasses, old wine bottles or both? How were they connected to power? They’d be perfect for my apartment’s small galley kitchen.

    Masterpiece in wood. The interior color exudes a gentle, nurturing quality to me.
