This is a two bedroom tiny house on wheels. More specifically, it’s a two bed, two bath mobile home built like a cabin by Escape. The home is parked on lot number six at the Escape Tampa Bay Tiny House Village and features a large rear deck accessible via glass slider. The Escape Space CLASSIC shed pairs nicely with it as a guest house or office, doesn’t it?
Anyway, yes this big tiny house is available right now. I was able to go and tour it myself on May 20th, here are some of the photos I was able to get for you. More coming… Update: New video tour added! Also, if you’d like, please check availability and inquire to buy right here. Enjoy…

Two Bedroom Tiny House at Escape Tampa Bay Tiny House Village
This is a one-off design/build from ESCAPE…
It’s not a model that they usually offer, it’s sort of a test design/build that they did.
It’s currently in their new Florida Tiny House Village near Tampa Bay, Florida.
Step inside to discover the beautiful living area with open-layout.
Vaulted ceilings with a fan, sliding glass doors to the private back deck… Down the hall to the bedroom and bathroom.
Has vaulted ceilings with a fan. Nice touch. Lots of windows too!
It’s very spacious, and has built-in storage. The frosted door is nice, too!
A look at the kitchen. Sorry about the terrible photography here.
Lighting is a little better so you can see the kitchen, washer/dryer, and a peek at the master bedroom (with its own bath).
Washer dryer right by the pantry.
And the master bedroom with king bed.
The master bathroom with dual sinks.
Lots of storage in here.
And the doors slide open and shut for privacy.
What do you think of this big tiny house?
It’s really like a park model or a single wide, but it’s built like a cabin!
It looks and feels and lives like a regular house.
Two bedrooms, two baths, sliding glass doors…
Built-in dining table with wall storage.
Let’s step outside to see the outdoor space.
A great place to relax and unwind after a hard day’s work (or a long day of staying at home).

Hi, only thing, and it’s nitpicking, stop using a go pro to take photos, I get it makes the unit look…wider, but it really does not justice.
Otherwise, it’s a nice layout. Bathroom access through the master isn’t my fav with guests, perhaps a design would show that on the inside of the unit not at the very end.
Aha, that’s what it was. I kept thinking the pictures looked wonky or off somehow but I couldn’t figure out how or why. It made me intensely dislike the house believing the dimensions were off.
There are more shots of it here without the wide angle/fish-eye lens: https://tinyhousetalk.com/escape-mobile-home-a-two-bed-two-bath-tiny-house/
You can also see the exact floor plan there, too 🙂
Thanks, Alex. Looking back at the first pics I can easily see the fisheye effect but somehow missed it before.
Love the extra space and design. I could definitely live in a house like this!
Those pictures are MUCH better than the fish eye pictures !
I’ll be sure not to use that lens again next time around! Thanks for the feedback everyone!
The guests could use the other bathroom in the guest bedroom.
Man, I gotta win the lottery!
Is why I don’t come on to often. I was injured in a fall and my right Retina was damaged badly. I have seizure’s from flashy colours and pics taken like that. I love this place and miss it. Seizures are not fun and there is nothing that can be medically done.
Have you tried changing your browser, phone, or computer to show everything in grayscale? And stopping all animations?
James D. You are awesome! Think I would of thought that but I didn’t. I did it and it works! Thank you so very much. Now I cannot complain. Am happy that I can start coming on here more. I missed you all very much.
You’re welcome, and welcome back.
James, you’re a hero, thank you so much!
I like to own or rent a tiny home. I live in Los Angeles, CA.
My question is; Do have any tiny homes over here? If so, can you give me a phone number or email for me to communicate with them. Thank you!
Okay maybe I’ve lost sight of all of this I’ve been following tiny house almost the very beginning for my beginning rights they probably like 7 years ago I’m thinking in the whole point is to downsize I understand but the price is the main thing where you’re not dealing with all outrageous house prices this one’s listed almost a hundred and seventy thousand I’ve noticed in the last couple of years it keeps getting more ridiculous more ridiculous
No, just have to understand what the costs are for just like anything else.
Most low cost Tiny Houses are under 20′ in length, but this is 54′, for an example, and is also wider than your typical tiny house. Some of these are just going right up to small and even nearly regular house sizes but can be a better option for families, especially large families versus what a single person or even couple would need…
Costs also go up when it includes land and/or is built to meet IRC, on a foundation instead of on wheels, as then it has to deal with building permits, impact fees, inspections, etc. but it also means it has all the same legal rights and benefits as owning a traditional house/real estate.
THOWs avoid many of these additional costs but without land it means needing to rent a spot to park them, which can add up to more over time, and makes it harder to find a permanent location where you can legally live in it full time.
How it’s built also factors as custom built will tend to be the most expensive and compares to multi-million dollar traditional homes for apples to apples comparison. Mass produced generic model homes will tend to cost significantly less in comparison. But that all effects quality, how optimized it is for the person living in it, can determine what needs it will and won’t meet, and effect quality of life…
Having features like being able to live off-grid adds to the up front costs but allows lifestyle and being able to live in locations you may not otherwise be able to…
Basically, all homes, including tiny ones, are not all equal or built the same and the details matter in determining what they will cost… Tiny living is relative, different people have different needs and deal with different situations. There isn’t a one size fits all that works equally well for everyone and not everyone can go about it the same way. So costs will vary…
It depends upon where you live as to whether the price is too high. If you live in British Columbia, Canada, you might be able to purchase manufactured home for that price, but not much else. Even the monthly pad rental isn’t bad. Lots of places charge a $1K a month.
I didn’t check out the full list of things, but noticed the home had Toto toilets. We had them in several homes we lived in and they run about $700 to $900 each. A regular toilet can be had in a big box store for a hundred on sale. If this home has higher qualify finishes, it will cost more.
Agree the market has changed for tiny homes and thus the designs and size. For people going from a 2000 sq. ft. house, this may be small/tiny. if its two people living in the same house and want some distance between each other, this is about as small as you want to get. For younger people who may spend time at work and then on their social lives and outdoors, smaller might work, for two people spending a lot of time at home, something as small as the original tiny houses, might lead to divorce. What this house gives people is an option, going smaller, but not so small you drive yourself and each other crazy.
Love the deck but the home is just another single wide mobile home and pretty boring.
The deck is great !
There is no way I would pay that amount of money for a 2 bed 2 bath mobile home, which is all that this is. The finishes look decent but nothing high end to justify this price, and then have to pay $600 a month in lot rent, no thank you. If I want a mobile home in a mobile home park I can get it for a whole lot less money.
Yes and no, you can certainly find something for less and even a lot less but all these homes can vary greatly in dimensions, materials, designs, layouts, and amenities.
Things like build quality may not be easily understood by just looking at photos. Something can look great new but fall apart in a couple of years, for example, but that effects the costs just the same. Others can be second hand and you’re actually paying for something used and not new but that has it’s own set of trade offs… Lower cost homes will also tend to use more synthetic materials and may not be as healthy to live in, among other things to keep in mind as there are reasons for cost differences…
One of the things that separates Tiny Houses from mobile or manufactured houses is that they tend to be over built to much higher standards and are more commonly custom made while mobile/manufactured homes are typically made in a factory and will typically be a model series that can be mass produced versus one off custom builds that will cost more… Some mobile/manufactured houses are better built than others but typically they are meant to be cheaper built than your standard stick built house and that has some consequences on how the home performs, how durable it will be, how long it will last without maintenance, etc.
Details like the roof, for example, for this Escape Home is a Panel-Loc Plus metal roofing with 40 year warranty… The 30” overhangs give the home a nice umbrella effect that will help ensure it’ll last for decades with very little maintenance… Features like the 13’ opening wall of glass is very expensive all by itself and windows are typically one of the things people overlook on what effects the costs but they have certain benefits people can value… There’s a lot of real wood Maple and Cedar used throughout… It’s very energy efficient and has a lot of smart home features… Basically, a lot of what you would not find in you’re typical low cost mobile home…
Add, they’re including Water, sewer and garbage/recycling, along with parking free with lot and rental units. All units have their own laundry facilities and are completely climate controlled. Some units even have solar power and again are extremely energy efficient…
Though, mobile/manufactured houses can go much bigger on up to over 3000 Sq Ft and custom ones can go much higher prices than this but can legally be placed on a foundation and only need to meet HUD instead of the IRC that can vary from one location to the next and is generally a harder standard to meet for Tiny Houses.
While location, what’s nearby, and the appearance and status of the neighborhood and local economy is also a factor when comparing to other options…
So definitely not for everyone but the differences should be understood when making comparisons and factoring what you’d be actually getting out of it. Since even similar homes can have very different reasons for costs…
As always, eloquently put and very educational, James!
I think my issue is bedrooms are always made so large, all We do is sleep there, smaller bedrooms and larger living areas are what I am looking for in a build. Even a thought of taking a bed into a Murphy so you can make use of the space as an office is a great idea. I do like ESCAPES ideas just not prices. They didn’t mention how wide the building is or how tall the ceilings are.
I tend to agree! In our home our master bedroom is much larger than it needs to be, but there’s nothing else to really make the space into.
Had to have my hubby scroll down for me. Do some photographers realize that some people have had strokes in their vision? Seems like some just don’t think at all about others. I almost had a seizure from the pics. I wanted to say something. My hubby scrolled to comments for me. Am not trying to be a *itch, but if the shoe was on the other foot this Photographer would maybe be a tad considerate. Wish I could of saw the pics.
Hey Sheila – sorry about the wide angle pics. I’ll keep this in mind next time around. Anyway, we do have another post of this house with better pictures that shouldn’t make you dizzy. See those here: https://tinyhousetalk.com/escape-mobile-home-a-two-bed-two-bath-tiny-house/
Living space could be more of a feature in terms of % of build as surely this is where you spend more time? Rest of home looks luxurious but seating and dining area look like a very very basic caravan. That aspect disappoints.
Less use of the fish eye camera would give a more realistic appearance to the home. Sort of looks like a “Fun House” but is definitely not one and correctly constructed.
I like this house! Its not tiny, its small and for many, small is better. The price point is fine. A stick build on site would run you more and have to deal with contractors and trades. This is delivered to your site, done. there is a lot to be said for that. These homes are also built indoors, so its what I refer to as a “dry build”. houses built on site, can be very “wet builds” if they’re done in non summer months and that for some people can lead to mold problems.
$600 a month for a site, is not bad. Living in B.C. we see much higher rates. Also living in B.C. we have seen, since the 1970s parks being sold and then people evicted with their homes so condos could be built. If you can get a long term lease that would be better, best would be being able to purchase your lot, which we’re seeing more of here on Vancouver island, B.C., Canada. they are simply strata lots, so you own them, with a few rules.
In another 5 to 8 years I’d be ready for this type of a home, on of course my own land or a twenty year lease, just in case I live to be very old.
Omg yes its amazing and beautiful but truly to expensive! You know how fast that will go in a bad storm or hurricane like this us Florida and the way things are going in this world who ever pays that much for that is crazy! But it is beautiful for like a guest house or pool house behind a real sturdy house.
Actually, tiny houses are quite sturdy, as from the trailer up they are built like houses and there’s multiple examples of Tiny Houses, including Escape Home models like those above, that have been through hurricanes, and some of them have been in Florida for well over a decade now for an idea of their track record so far, as we’ve yet to hear of any that was damaged by a storm that didn’t involve severe fires or flooding as the actual cause of damage…
You can look up examples like the tiny house vacation resort on Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota, aka Tiny House Siesta, that all of the THOWs that have been around since that place opened made it through even Irma back in 2017… Another example is Take-Me-Home, is in the Gracious RV & Tiny House Park in Okeechobee, that had sustained 46 mph winds for 5 hours, with gusts up to 75 mph that same year but all 4 THOWs they had there came out unscathed… Among other examples…
Similar to manufactured houses, they’re typically set up with tie downs to anchor them and like a house they’re a lot heavier and more durable than a RV… Some are even rated to handle over 200 MPH winds and over 9.0 earthquakes or stacked to form multi-story buildings, not all of course, just like regular houses aren’t all rated that high but typically, all but the worst built, will be designed to at least handle conditions equivalent to being towed along the highways at 60+ MPH for many hours at a time, which is like experiencing a category 1 hurricane and a earthquake at the same time…
Not that they can’t be knocked over but they will usually hold up pretty well against most things… and depending where you are putting one you may even be able to put them on a foundation for extra sturdiness or at least tie them down so they’re nicely anchored in place…
I believe location is another factor when deciding if a dwelling is too expensive. As James already pointed out, there are a lot of variables to factor in. I’ve been in Florida all my life (62 years) and to me, this unit is pricey. I live in a large lightly populated county. You can find acre lots all day long for $6k-8k. Figuring high at $2k for clearing grading, $5k for well, $5k for septic, and $60k-80k for a top of the line park model or small mobile home and you have $80-100kk in your little 1 acre homestead and no lot rent. Property taxes are fairly low here. There are manufactured home builders out there that offer 2″x6″ wall framing on 16″ centers, 3/4″ floors, metal roofing, and many other upgrades and are actually built better than some of the stick homes out there. At any rate, for $100k or less (and thats new everything) you would be set. So, factoring in my area, the unit featured seems very expensive to me.
The other option here is to build on a permanent foundation. Based on county room size requirements, you could build as small as 400 sq ft. If you are capable, factoring in $20k for land, clearing, well, and septic, you could have a finished tiny home on a foundation for $70k easy and that’s with paying for some trade help. So you end up with a tiny home and an acre plot for your gardening and animals. Just another view and an option in my area.
how did you get the walls to bend like that?
Looks good. Has every thing some one would want for a small home. Especially like how the master bath is done. The kitchen, where no one spends their life is great and the washer and dryer look to be a good size and the pantry is right where it ought to be.
Lets hope they sell them else where. Covid rate is a tad high in Florida and in the U.S.A. in general. Would I seriously think about purchasing one like this? Yes, if I were downsizing. Having the second bedroom, gives you an office or an actual guest room. It would be great to just place it on your own lot. Nice space around the home though.
suggestion: when taking pictures for a lay out like this, close the lid on the toilet.
Escape sells them all over the country, although they don’t have villages all over.
Love it. I have downsized and realize the benefits of living in a smaller space. The only thing I would add is a place for a small office. This is great!
In this situation, you can actually use the extra shed that’s next to it as an office. Check it out right here: https://tinyhousetalk.com/escape-space-classic-shed-cabin-at-tampa-village/
I absolutely love this home. We used to live in the Tampa area. If we still did, I would love to have one of these. Alas, we have moved to Montgomery, Texas. I really like your concept of the Tiny House Village and wish we had one here.
Are you going to be making more of the 2 bed 2 bath for other areas? I am really interested
Hi Jan, they are making this one for the expansion of the village: https://tinyhousetalk.com/new-photos-of-escapes-mid-century-modern/ but as far as I remember, this unit here was a one-off design/build from Escape.
Really bad pics!
