    So basically the main floor bed is what could be considered auxillary kitchen counter space? Not so sure how I feel about that.

    • Natalie C. McKee
      March 15, 2017, 10:27 am

      No the bed is separate but there’s that little table that pulls out for eating 🙂

        I realize that now, but it does take a second look and until I saw in the description that there was a main floor bed it did appear as if , being in the kitchen it could be a large counter top.

    I LOVE the dinette seating on drawers and pullout table. Ingenious and a great double use of space that frees up space elsewhere. I’m not so crazy about the bare generic plywood look though. I probably would have opted to pay more for cabinet grade plywood sealed with a clear finish or given in an painted the walls. This is a great little house!

    This has some very creative ideas that could be utilized in any THOW. Very innovative use of space. This would be great for an individual setting out on their own for the first time. There are a couple of things I personally do not care for — if you used that lower bed area as a bed it is going to get covered in cooking grease due to the location of the burner. There is no place for clothes that I could see, so I guess you are only allowed what you are wearing. I would not use that lower space for a bed, I would put up a divider of some sort, curtain, folding doors, sliding doors and turn that space into a closet. Otherwise this is a very functional design for the space.

    • Natalie C. McKee

      Good idea about creating a closet space. i guess some don’t believe in hanging their clothes up anymore.

  • Meta

    Very well designed space. It would work for me and grandchildren, with storage space under the benches…it looks to be affordable and not so highend. As some of us are going tiny, because we want it simple and nice. This has a good size bathroom with room for more shelving or a fold up tiny sink. And may also consider a small 20″ cookstove w/oven. 16″ is doable.

    • Natalie C. McKee
      March 30, 2017, 8:59 am

      Yes I’d like the cookstove 🙂

    Okay! , nicely done. but where is a closet? are there any closets at all? where is one expected to hang clothes or store things like broom , mops etc. what’s with it in some tiny house floor plans there is no closets not even one tiny one?

    • Natalie C. McKee
      June 1, 2017, 2:48 pm

      I think most larger tiny homes do try to have closet space, or at least a spot behind a door for a broom. This one is so limited at only 16 ft., though. You can just only fit so much! Once you get to 20 ft and beyond, there’s usually decent storage in THOWs.

  • Silverd Gypsy

    This is a great little build. The only thing I would change would be some kind of closet over the tongue to house the propane bottle(s). Come winter, if you don’t want problems with your propane, you need a bottle blanket; better yet, put it in an insulated cupboard over the tongue. That way it won’t freeze over and it won’t get stolen. The rest of it is great for a Ramblin’ Man or a Silver Gypsy! 😀

    • Natalie C. McKee

  • Barb

    I believe for the price it could have the propane tanks in a covered space. That end bed does need a pull up or across curtain type privacy. There does seem to be storage. Just if you want to hang, be creative. There’s room in bathroom for a hanger bar, and above beds.

    • Natalie C. McKee
      June 2, 2017, 12:16 pm

      Yes a curtain could be added easily 🙂 I think this is just what it looked like straight from MitchCraft. It’d be fun to see it “lived in.”

  • alice h

    Nicely done but essentially it’s an eat-in/sleep-in kitchen with a loft. I would prefer a proper lounging space with a day bed and a large window to watch the world from.

    • Marsha Cowan
      February 21, 2018, 6:01 pm

      It has a seating area in the place we usually end up, the kitchen. I hover over my table the whole time I am in my house, typing, playing games with folks, watching televison. I like the arrangement myself. Reminds me of when my kids were small, and we would all sit around the kitchen table in the evening and talk about the day. It was cozy and wonderful. That is what this table set up brings to my mind.

      • alice h
        February 22, 2018, 12:19 pm

        Yup, all depends on how you use a space whether any particular configuration makes sense or not. I’ve been living in a 10×12 no loft shack since last May and spend a lot of time at the table (command central). I also have a built-in sleeping/reading couch where I spend a lot of time. Big window views from either spot, just the way I like it.

  • Dominick Bundy
    January 16, 2018, 3:17 pm

    Not a bad lay out for the size.. But I didn’t see any closet space at all.. Nothing ! What does one do with their clothes that has to be hung up?

    • Karen Blackburn

      I use the tried (over centuries) and trusted method of chests. As I live in dresses with only a couple of pairs of slacks (for when it gets really wet, and Ireland gets lots of rain) I haven’t found a problem to date, and I have done this now for nearly a decade. A couple of wall hooks to hang a garment up overnight to let any wrinkles fall and dresses are fit to wear. I do use all natural fabrics such as cotton or linen but that probably increases wrinkles rather than lessens them. Still, no problem and never had any comments about unironed clothing (yes I do have to look professional for work reasons).

    Nope, I don’t like the plywood! Looks dark and cheap and not homey.

    • James D.
      June 5, 2021, 6:28 pm

      Could always paint or wallpaper them, plywood is wood veneer but the really nice ones are pricey vs the construction grade stuff that this appears to be. So depends on your budget…

      Some have even used methods to make the plywood look like drywall/sheetrock or plaster. You could even consider applying 1/8th” drywall panels over it or other veneer decor products to change its appearance. So you’re not limited to just how it looks…

      Structurally, it’s great for hanging things as you can put a screw anywhere and it’ll be a lot stronger than doing the same in drywall/sheetrock, like having studs everywhere. So you can play around with modifying the layout before you address the appearance of the walls…

      Renovating is something to consider whenever you buy a THOW that’s already made or pre-owned but most builders are custom builders so they can always do it differently if you hire them to build another one… Just comes down to budget…

    Nice design. Reminds me a lot of the van conversions I have been enjoying seeing. Much better use of space than a lot – and I love the ground floor bed. Only needs washer/dryer! But I know how to solve that, without taking up more space than will fit in one small drawer! The bonus would be the guest bed in the loft! I could definitely live in this space!

  • Mary
    January 24, 2022, 4:20 pm

    Love the plywood! So warm and cozy. Easy care also. I like the uber efficient layout, a lot packed into 16′. I might opt for another two feet to find a way to have a narrow closet. The broom and clothes would end up in the way otherwise.
    A very nice build!

    Love this tiny house! Bed/table/seating area reminiscent of van tiny house builds. No reason not to use it in a THOW! If you don’t like the plywood, there is always paint or wallpaper. I could happily live in this tiny house! If it were me, I would set it up in a permanent location, and therefore would change the toilet out for a flush toilet, only because I don’t like the hassle of dealing with the composting toilet. Wasteful, I know, but with my energy levels (I’m 74 with mobility issues), it is the choice I would have to make!

    I love the bed setup and the exterior. I’m not a fan of the plywood; it looks unfinished. Even a wash or stain would make it look a bit better.

    I wish there were more cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom. With space at a premium, it seems a couple shelves here and there isn’t going to cut it. I’m looking forward to when open shelving is no longer a ‘thing’. Give me cabinets any day.

    • James D.
      November 10, 2023, 5:20 pm

      It’s not so much a thing, but what’s often what’s practical for efficient use of space, budget, and effecting how small the space feels.

      However, it’s all a choice and the builder that this is from is a custom builder and that means they’ll basically do whatever you want and it’s just a question of what trade offs you’re willing to deal with and your budget as to what will determine the actual limits of what you can choose, if you get another one built…

      • Doreen
        November 10, 2023, 10:45 pm

        It actually is a thing (a design trend) in both tiny and bigger homes. As a matter of fact, it was recently voted by designers as a trend they can’t wait to see the back of.

        I get that it’s a personal choice, but when you have limited space, open shelves are not only NOT a wise use of space, they also make an area look messy and cluttered, and this is the last thing you want or need in a tiny house.

        Don’t look at homes with open shelving out of magazines because that’s totally staged with the plant, the 4 white plates and wine glasses, and the vintage cake stand. In a normal home you’d be seeing cereal boxes, coffee bags, condiments/spices, canned goods, potatoes, etc. Messy and unattractive.

        But to each his or her own.

        • James D.
          November 11, 2023, 4:14 am

          No, it’s really not just a design trend, at least for tiny homes, but again, simply what is often what is practical!

          Something to understand is everything, including cabinets, have trade offs and thus both pros and cons.

          Fact is the cons for cabinets is that they take up more space for the storage they provide, they cost up to a significant amount more than shelving, they don’t mean the space will be used efficiently, and the space they take up can negatively effect how the space feels for an already small space that can make people feel more claustrophobic, reduce available lighting, and limit the space that people can move while using that space.

          These cons just are less significant in larger spaces and the benefits of cabinets become more clear and thus why cabinets are more common in the larger THOWs and less in the smaller ones.

          Mind that tiny homes, in general, tend to make people focus more on functionality and efficiency. Since, those are what most greatly effect the livability of the home and how much they can get out of even a very small home.

          So things like aesthetics tend to become less important, if it means sacrificing functionality and efficiency. More so the tinier the living space.

          Visibility may result in a sense of messiness but it also means being aware of items that otherwise may not be used. Along with promoting keeping items more organized, improving the efficient use of space, ease of access to items, and making living in general easier.

          It’s like keeping a tiny home clean. The smaller space is quicker to clean but it also leads to needing to clean more often as smaller spaces can get dirtier faster. However, that’s still considered a net benefit as overall it’s easier than maintaining a larger home for the total amount of work required.

          So, it may seem counter intuitive but there are real reasons people make these choices and those reasons aren’t going to change any time soon.

          It’s just something to get used to because most tiny homes are being custom built and thus reflect the actual diversity of people. Along with how the size of the home effects what is actually the most practical solution when efficiency and functionality become the most important considerations… Doesn’t mean you have to follow suite, it’s just something to understand why other people aren’t making the same choices. While also to point out you’re free to make a different choice and that’s pretty much the point whenever pointing out it can be custom built and you don’t have to follow anyone else’s design choices, as otherwise it wouldn’t be custom and misses what really makes the tiny house market different from others as custom is the norm but not in most others…

    I like the floorplan, it is well thought. However, there are some features I would change.
    Firstly, the storage loft. For me its not a way to go.
    Secondly, the bed platform. Slats would save weight and give a more comfortable sleep.
    Thirdly, the exterior. I would reduce the overall height which saves costs, reduce wind resistance and makes the THOW more proportinal.
