    Excellent use of space. I particularly like the main level bed/dining area. Quite creative.

      Can go to Trekker Trailers, and get 2 for the price of this one. Give Andrew the design..he will build it. You could, also, get more bang for your buck at Incredible Tiny Homes. If you come out and help build it, he will take up to $10k off the build price. Gives you a place to stay, and food.

        I am sure there are other builders with prices to fit any budget but I do think the concept of this site is to show you all options, not for someone to advertise another company. That’s kind of tacky really.It’s cute. I could live there and if not this one then great ideas to build my own.

    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 🙂

        March 15, 2017, 10:13 pm

        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

      Great ideas to improve the space!

      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

      I agree! Just enough space and better than a dorm room 🙂

  • 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
    September 18, 2017, 11:26 pm

    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.

  • January 14, 2018, 1:32 am

    Sorry, but my 15 ft. Tumbleweed Tiny House Lusby model built by Jay Shafer had MUCH more usable living space than this home! Where can you sit and relax? Or work? The Lusby had a galley kitchen, living room, bathroom, TWO closets flanking the front door and a small office/bedroom on the first floor! There was a sleeping loft and a storage loft! A great layout that packed a LOT in just 15 by 8 feet! I would still be living in it if I hadn’t gotten tired of climbing a ladder and crawling around in the loft to sleep! You can see pictures on my blog “Tinyhousetales.blogspot.com”. I really think it’s a great design – unfortunately, Tumbleweed did not keep it in their portfolio.

      sounds wonderful! Could you post photos of plans or even just a sketch so we can have a general idea? thanks so much!

      • September 10, 2018, 4:38 pm

        Here is the video tour of the house that I put together when I was selling it. Hope it gives you a better picture of the layout!

        • Karen Blackburn
          February 21, 2019, 5:29 am

          Watched the video but again, no place for a table and chair to eat at, or an easy chair to relax in at night. The ladders come right out into the kitchen area leaving no floor space for furniture, which would block the door into the bathroom in any case. Yes there is an ‘office’ area but you can hardly use it as a living room as well, no space. Plenty of room tyo hang clothes but some of us go the old, tried and tested (over centuries) way and store clothing in chests, neatly folded. Honestly this 15′ has less usable space, no ground floor bed (can’t see how you could fit one into the office and still get to one long side to make the bed or have bedside table), no space in great room for table, chair (refuse to constantly clear office just to eat or prepare food), easy chair. Tiny kitchen preparation and cooking space, having had many small kitchens this is truly a badly designed one, with a ladder that takes up a lot of floor space. The only good part is that if you prefer to hang your clothing there is plenty of room. Each to their own so you probably preferred your 15′ design but doubtless the new owner will prefer the 16′ design as well. Certainly a ground floor bed needs space at least down one side so you can access the mattress to turn it and change the bedding, easily. In this the 16′ has the advantage. Plus a table and a couple of seats are ideal for when your neighbour popos over for a cuppa, be it tea or coffee, and a slice of home made cake, or even lunch. Neither 15′ or 16′ have space to put an easy chair or two just to relax in the evening and read a book or enjoy a glass of liqueur before climbing into bed. But with such a small space you really need to design the inside JUST FOR YOU because what I would have and what you would have are totally different. Am currently playing around with plans and have decided that 17′ is perfect but the width really needs to be 12′ and one 12′ end should consist of a bay window with a wide ledge along the whole width because I need plenty of light and I fill my space full of plants. Againb, different needs breed different interior layouts, and one isn’t really better than another except to the person living there.

    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
      February 21, 2019, 5:36 am

      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!
