    All these square, boxy tiny houses=MEH. Utterly without charm.

    I would never buy one.

      What would you like to see?

  • Avatar Donna September 13, 2016, 1:13 pm

    @Alex – when you post the most important information we need is size, cost and layout in the post. We didn’t get any of that in this post. This looks a lot like a Park Model but the space is not well utilized. (well maybe not as I don’t know how much space there is )

    • Avatar Roxann Suits September 13, 2016, 4:33 pm

      Hi! The price is listed in the highlights. It is $82,000. Didn’t watch the video, but maybe there is more info there.

    Just what I would wish for in a tiny home. No Ladders! Very nice I would want a few tweaks, just for my taste, but this design fit the bill for some one like me who will never climb ladders and and wants a larger tiny home.

  • Avatar ZACHARY E MOHRMANN September 13, 2016, 9:51 pm

    Ouch again….! A lot of accessories which are with out a doubt top of the line products, but are far to excessive for the market these tiny houses were originally intended, those who are struggling to get out from under debt of a heavy mortgage and those who are just starting out in life not looking to get in heavy debt… But I guess the trendy thing to do now is accessorize to the extreme, and to have the most expensive tiny house in a tiny house community maybe…? God only knows where this is all going to whined up in the future, but I think it will create an already unstable economy more unstable… Who knows what the future holds… And I am not saying that anyone is bad or wrong or anything else, I’m just concerned as to what this will do to a house building industry as far as the cost of future house building, including regular houses… Will this make the building of regular houses prices go up to where we will see them more unaffordable than what they already are in a lot of cases, and, or forcing more people to seek tiny housing in order to survive, or just live for that matter…? Or even making tiny houses unreachable to where we will see even more homeless….? Those are my concerns as we are not seeing any rise into today’s economy as it is….!

      Our thoughts exactly! HA!

      Gracious you paint a bleak picture. It’s not as bad as all that. The tiny house movement is just going through normal phases. The first contest was “how small can you go.” Now the contest has become “how luxe can you go.” Soon I suspect we’ll see “how much value can you get,” which a good thing. But there will always be suppliers for both basic and luxe models.

      That said, I am rather concerned about people asking about 30-year mortgages for tiny houses. Will these houses last for 30 years? Will they fall apart like a sports car? Or will they simply depreciate like RV’s? If you need a 30-year mortgage to afford $80K, then you should probably buy a foundation house, which comes with land and will at least hold its value. Or buy a small $30K condo for cash.

      • Avatar ZACHARY E MOHRMANN September 16, 2016, 7:56 am

        I only wish I could so coldly call this a contest as you and be so dismissive….! And yes some people need a helping hand in life to start out, not every one is born in to a family who owns a ivory tower in which they call their house… And from your description of sports cars and RV’s I would guess you never really had to struggle to put a roof over your head…! So a contest would probably be befitting as the description of the housing industry which could make the difference of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of houses to those who need them…! I wish I could be so blindly cold…! But tomorrow I know when I wake up that there will be more people looking for shelter from the cold or the heat, and the rain or the snow, but because there is this contest among builders on who can be so opulent, and people who can be so dismissive, that they will never find shelter for their start in life, or rite to survive this recession, no depression…! And do you know the difference between the two of those…? One is which we call it now that our government denies, and the other which our government will not ever admit to happening again.. Not that we are in that far a hole as of yet within this country, Thank God….! But if we continue on speculating on contests who knows what tomorrow will bring….! Will those who need housing find it…? Will this not bring depression..? Let’s all continue to gamble on it…

          Why does a tiny house have to be confined to being “cheap” or “inexpensive”? People want to go small for all sorts of reasons, and, believe it or not, not everyone does it for the money. Should those people just be dismissed as not being part of the movement???

          I’m a tiny house builder. I also own several pieces of land. One of my objectives is to be able to move one seasonally. I can buy land in places where I could never afford to build a permanent structure. This is just one example of someone owning a tiny home for a reason other than not having a mortgage. I’ve made smart decisions in my life, and I live comfortably. I’ve also worked very hard. I am very budget conscious with my clients. However, I didn’t enter the tiny home market to work for pennies, or to build shelter for the poor. I donate time and materials to several charities who build/repair homes for the needy. In my day to day life, I’m not working for minimum wage just so someone else doesn’t have to pay a mortgage.

          I agree that no one should be taking a 30 year mortgage on a tiny home. If money is your primary motivator, then buy a more bare bones model, or build it yourself. Putting parameters on something based solely on $$ is not very encompassing. To put it simply: If you don’t like the price, don’t buy it! But to pass judgement on a house simply because of its price tag is short-sighted. It amazes me the amount of energy people will put into a comment simply to bash whatever the subject is. No one is forcing a higher priced tiny home on anyone. There either is a market, or there isn’t.

          I’m pretty sure Zachary stated quite clearly that he’s not labeling anyone right or wrong on this. To some extent I’d agree with oxide’s comment inre the “phases” of the tiny house movement. I do feel however that Zachary’s spot-on in questioning how this undeniable trend of “luxe” tiny is affecting the overall market, primarily for those who’re seeking out the lifestyle more out of necessity rather than some other novelty. I have no doubt the luxe trend is affecting the overall span of TH pricing in such a way that it’ll diminish the affordability factor for those with lesser disposable income. You don’t need to be an economics expert to know it’s the way of things. Zachary’s addressing a very valid point imo, that I’m afraid James maybe shouldn’t have chimed in on, having the builder’s point of view… If he doesn’t also live in a tiny himself, it’s hard to accept his stance on the expandability of the market’s price-point ceiling if his perspective is strictly that of the builder/seller of such units. It seems clear James isn’t considering the lower price-point models as equally important to the market simply because those builds bring less attractive margins for producers like himself. No offense meant, James.
          Bottom line, there should be room in the market for all shapes and price-points, only not if the result is to drive up the cost of simpler TH’s beyond affordability for those most in need of such housing alternatives. The tiny AirB&B trend is another shining example of them becoming an investment opportunity for the “haves” to co-opt something initially intended for the “hope-to-someday-haves”.

    I love the no-lofts and reasonable stairs my Leonberger could climb. With a couple of tweaks, I’d buy it 🙂

    • Avatar Jamie February 12, 2017, 11:00 pm

      Most of the Leonbergers I’ve ever seen are as BIG as a tiny house! Ha Ha! I’m kidding, of course. But, if you do choose to start living in a tiny home with your Leonberger, he will probably wonder why on earth you are sharing the Doghouse with him! Ha Ha! =)

      • Avatar Carrie March 10, 2017, 2:53 pm

        Haha, yep… he probably would 🙂 Truly though, with doable stairs (I’m disabled) and a huge dog, this design is definitely in the running.

          Glad you like it!

  • Avatar ROSEE September 14, 2016, 5:42 pm

    Great! Where can I get the plans for this one?

  • Avatar Bjo Trimble September 15, 2016, 11:51 am

    What we need, as creative senior citizens, is a bed on the ground floor, NOT a loft! We also need a tiny house scrounged together with found objects, not overly-expensive new gadgets. And a tiny kitchen, because nobody needs a full-sized kitchen if they are going tiny, for pity sake! And no wheels; we’ll find a spot and build there. Is there such a tiny house plan like this?

    Why are you still trying to justify your actions to me…? And where did I say it is all about money to me..? I write in on behalf of the economy not just your personal needs…! Stop wasting my time and these peoples with your petty little it’s all about you routine… People have better things to do with their time… I only view the points of this country as a whole and where it is going on a whole, not on how you make, spend, donate or what ever it is you are flapping your gums about… If you feel that you are so unappreciated in your life’s lofty plans then go pick the pockets of those who will pay you and appreciate you better… I have no personal loath for you… Who are you that you be so important to me or anyone for that matter…! If you want to be someone else then strive to do so,but to justify to me your reasons is fruit less…! Now please don’t waste these peoples times and enjoyment of checking out this site and maybe finding a better alternative to their life with your personal issues because I did not engage you in conversation for this purpose…. My reasons are not as selfish, I think about everyone who is trying to find a piece of heaven.. I believe in the goals that this idea was founded on that we don’t have to live large to enjoy life and that anyone can afford to buy a home of their own even if it is not a 15000 sq. ft mansion on a great hill or private island, but right here with the rest of the people…! So don’t think that I have created a private assault on your life style, because I don’t even know you, and I’m sure you might be a good person, but this is not all about you…! So you take care and I wish you well, I don’t know what else I can tell you….! But you take care….! Bye ….!

    Can you list any manufacturers of tiny houses on wheels in Thailand ?

  • Avatar Sarah March 9, 2017, 9:46 pm

    Wow, I just love what is that a little reading nook with the absolutely gorgeous wood wall. I love this place.

    On another note, if you guys want to argue, could you please take it somewhere else? No offense intended but you did not make looking at this a pleasant experience.

      It’s awesome 🙂
