    Like the use of lofts for storage. Some upper cabinets would be easy to install in the kitchen. Almost overdosed on wood. But still nice.

      Yes storage lofts are great, especially for those who don’t want to sleep in one 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

    I must say that these tiny houses do look really nice except when it comes to the price shown to construct it. Who’s building these 25k homes? At that price a person could buy a regular travel trailer that’s constructed as a fiberglass shell ready to live in.
    Then I’m concerned about the weight of this structure setting on a basic 2 axle utility trailer designed to safely carry a couple tons. It would take the size of a one ton or larger truck to haul this all wood structure. A 70 ‘ X 12’ older style mobile home average weight between 4000 to 6000 pounds.

      Tiny Homes are usually custom built and designed to last longer, but RVs are definitely a good choice if you want one! Plus, $25K is a very reasonable cost for what you are getting in most tiny houses. — Tiny House Talk Team

      Regular fiberglass travel trailers are poorly insulated so prone to getting very cold, and transmits a lot of noise from outside to the inside. Also don’t breathe very well so moisture prone. And fiberglass does break… as does wood. But wood is far easier to fix than fiberglass.

    Nicely done. R21 seems light for ceiling insulation–especially if you are using electric heat. Even comes with resident ghost in window.

    Nice house…! Although I wouldn’t have put the stove top near the fridge… Did I read some where this house is going for $25,000.00 great price forgetting that the stove is to near to the fridge…! And everything else about this house is just perfect for the market that it’s intended…

      I agree! — Tiny House Talk Team

        The cook top has been taken out and we changed it to a portable convection oven and cook top which is so much better. I asked
        The builder to do it that way, but we learned quickly that the fridge got too hot. It is now a rental, so I love the greater safety of
        putting everything away when you are done.

    10’6″ is a better footprint easily pulled in most States and a permit $40.00 in others. Please tell me about the water tanks and HVAC. I take it the trailer has 7k axles at what length (8’6″) and “E” tires? I see it is listed as a cottage but it looks factory style built and pulled there.

      Hi Robert — I suggest you contact the folks in the links above because they’d have those details for you 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

    I always think of something like this for one or two people. Very nicely done. A small bedroom downstairs with a small closet, love it. Washer/Dryer and bathroom, all well done.

      Yes this could be a great little spot for a couple!

    Who is the song in the video by? Shazam was unable to find it. It had a really relaxing melody.
