    This park model is amazing! Fabulous choices in materials and colors, too. When I was a kid, we lived in a single-wide that was 40′ long and I was thinking of how nice it would be to add that extra length to this one. Leave the bedroom and bathroom as they are but add space to the living room and kitchen. How great it would be to have a pantry in the kitchen, right? Maybe a little extra storage in the living room, too. And I didn’t see a washer/dryer though there is a possible space in the bedroom though you’d have to give up the closet. With a little more study, one might find space for both a washer/dryer AND a closet…perhaps an armoire? Honestly, my only real complaint is the price. I mean, wow! Maybe that could be brought down with different choices in materials? Decorating would make it feel cozy no matter what. This could be perfect to some but how nice we all have an opportunity to customize these sorts of things.

      The Washer/Dryer combo unit is in the stairs, probably right behind those double cabinet doors as indicated in the floor plan… While the closet is also built into the stairs but opens from the rear, inside the bedroom. Though, the same sliding door works for both the closet and the bedroom. So opening the closet means closing the bedroom off and vice versa…

      Mind, being a Park Model and much wider than a typical THOW, there’s room for a residential standard 3 feet wide stairs, which for THOWs is usually constrained to around 2 feet wide to insure there’s enough room to walk around the stairs on the main level but that isn’t a problem for a wider structure like a Park Model…

      Given that the depth of a Washer/Dryer unit is around 27-32 inches, going from 2′ to 3′ wide is the difference between it sticking out a few inches from being able to fully enclose it and hide it from view… Comparisons to the bathroom door, bedroom sliding door, and the kitchen fridge all seem to support that the stairs are 3′ wide…

      As for cost, that’s actually from a combination of things… Besides materials, it’s also because it’s a designer style custom build, which everyone can choose a different design/layout and have it tailored to their specific requirements. While it’s also the amount of materials and labor, as a Park Model size is much bigger than the average tiny house, which is usually under half the size of a Park Model…

      So different material choices, smaller size, and standard model design that is preferably mass produced at a factory would bring that price down by up to a lot then, possibly even well below what a DIY build would cost…

      Though, some materials can be a significant factor, like custom high end windows can cost thousands more than your basic window, for each window, but the usual biggest factor of the three would be the designer custom building, and just changing that to the standard model series would probably be the biggest drop in costs as just custom building typically adds 50% to over 4x the cost of construction… Designer/Architect also tacks on another good chunk of maybe around 15%… Followed by scaling larger combined with material choices…

      Though, there can also be optional extras that add additional costs, like solar power system, rain catchment and filtration system, included furniture and appliances, etc.

      Basically, getting the price lower is definitely possible, even a lot lower is possible within reason, but it’ll usually involve a more comprehensive analysis of everything contributing to the costs and not just one thing like only material choices. Especially, if you want a significant and guaranteed drop in costs…

    What is the width…I can’t seem to locate it. It looks bigger than 8 1/2 feet. I can’t find it on their website either.

  • Pam Spears

    How wide is this house. Cannot find the width here nor on their website.

    Thank you,

    Why do you keep taking my comment down. I just want to know the width.

    @Pam Spears – Comments sometimes get flagged by the spam filter, it’s automatic, and would then need to be approved before they appear. It can just take awhile before one of the admins can get to it…

    As to your question, it states on the builder’s website. You can find the page with the information by clicking on the menu on top of their page > Our Models > Park Models and then scrawl down to the Villa Max…

    Basically, this model is 10′ wide, but they can make the park models wider, and this may actually be closer to 12′ counting all of the exterior, roof overhangs, etc. Judging by the floor plan proportions, assuming that’s accurate to scale…

    The other link, under Learn More, takes you to the builder’s auto form custom built page to choose from options and get a rough idea of what it will cost, etc. and is a good way to see what they can offer besides just what is shown, like the bedroom can have a bump out for an additional closet space…

    Tru Form’s website is one of the few configured to let people explore options and do some figuring on their own before contacting them for a quote, etc. and nailing down the details…

    I can’t believe that anybody in their right mind would pay $179,000 for a park model mobile home AND have to pay lot fees to park it somewhere. Have people completely lost their minds?

    • James D.
      November 19, 2021, 7:27 pm

      @Gail – No, this just not a simple park model any more than say a luxury yacht is just a boat, or cloths from a fashion designer is just the same as getting cloths off a rack at a thrift store, etc…

      Designer homes that are custom built for each and every owner and can have a wide variety of features and amenities, all built to high standards and attention to details just goes well above and beyond what you would get with a standard Park Model RV…

      So, like shopping for anything else, there’s budget to high end, with this being an example of high end…

      • Eric
        November 19, 2021, 9:00 pm

        … or a case of you get what you pay for. Having said that… there does seem to be a trend of builders, old and new, increasing prices. Some would say that in certain cases rather exorbitantly.

        • James D.
          November 19, 2021, 9:28 pm

          Well, yes and no… Prices have had to increase because the cost of everything has gone up…

          Even Nabisco has announced they’re raising the price of Oreo’s and other snack world wide to show virtually nothing has been left untouched by this trend… Thanks to high inflation rates, supply chain issues, and other problems that have been plaguing the economy for the last two years but have particularly impacted the construction industry.

          However, adjusted for inflation and those other factors, it’s more that there’s just more people getting into it, like even billionaire Elon Musk is living in a Boxabl, and they’re not all just ordering the basic model or DIY’ing it…

          Add higher end models tend to get a lot more coverage than the lower end models to the point some people don’t even know there’s any lower end models, which tends to make it seem much more one sided than it actually is…

      Here in MA, a friend of mine purchased a park model in a trailer park for $170,000 and it is nowhere near this gorgeous! But the homes in the surrounding area sell for $400K at the cheapest, so she’s better off for it.

    This Luxury Park Model home left me speechless. This is absolutely beautiful as it is functional! Not one detail was spared. Washer/dryer, dishwasher, full stove and fridge, full entry level bedroom, closet, storage stairs, full-sized cabinets, spacious living room (which I would make a dining room) a kitchen island w/cabinet storage, stairs and railings to the loft with a loft that at least a 6′ person could stand up in…no stone was left unturned! That loft would be my living room btw…okay! The exterior is as visually stunning as the interior.

    I would purchase a vacant lot here in the city (Detroit) & have a concrete slab poured for the length and width of this park model and park this there on my lot. I would add fencing and an array of solar panels to the lot for electricity and have the municipal water line (no sewage) turned on for my water supply (it can be done here in Detroit for a vacant lot). Plant some beautiful hostas and hydrangeas, add a small deck with steps to the front for entry. Finally, there is no lot rent to pay, only taxes on a vacant lot (much less than property taxes)…AND NO LOT RENT to concern myself with so to me, it is worth the $180k pricetag of the build.

    Again…breathtaking and stunning. Inside and out. 🥰

      Tru Form Tiny is an example of a high end custom builder. So equivalent to going to a custom furniture maker, tailor or fashion designer, Engineer/Architect/Designer, etc. instead of the cheaper alternatives for people who want either a nicer product or need features and amenities the lower cost products doesn’t provide.

      Just like going to a large car dealership and seeing the difference between say the next million dollar Bugatti luxury car from say a budget Honda Civic or Smart Car, there can be a very wide range anything can be built and priced that isn’t dependent on just their size or what they may call it…

      Thus details matter, and knowing what gets put into it and how it was done goes a long way to not only understanding the reason for the pricing but also being able to figure out what costs are essential from those that are only optional to better be able to get it to where you may prefer the price and not compromise too much on what you intend to get out of it…

      Everything from DIY’ing from reclaimed materials to budget builders and on up to high end builders, there’s a lot of options out there to find what’s most appropriate and ideal to you and your specific situation…

    I think this might be my favourite tiny home so far. I’d love to see the widest model. How high is the loft ceiling?

    I have been wanting a sofa just like that with NO cushions. Where did you buy this?

    Love this, and the price shows in the details and finishes. Love the shiny hexagon tiles in the kitchen, and that island, enabled by the extra width, really makes that kitchen perfect for those of us who like to cook. Having followed tiny homes for a while I’ve seen all kinds of different designs and budgets, and you really do get what you pay for and it shows in this model. Perfection! I would use the loft for extra storage and put a desk up there to work.

    It’s an interesting park model design. However the price tag seems to me a bit hefty.
    Beside that, the kitchen arrangement doesn’t follow any workflow rules of food preparing which are considering left or right handler. Fridge and reefer beside the cooktop and oven instead of the sink doesn’t make sense to me and kitchen designer evaluation might be probably similar.

    • James D.
      May 16, 2022, 2:16 pm

      Actually, the kitchen does follow workflow rules. Layouts in custom homes are just not going to be generic/standard but tailored to the specific owners preferences.

      For example, most people will insist on the sink being centered and placed directly in front of the window. So, in a layout where that can only be done in one location means the rest of the work flow has to work around that placement. The owner of this one also opted to not get the dishwasher and instead has additional drawers in that location, for another example of how the workflow has to work around the owner’s preferences and how they will actually use the space. Otherwise the Open Concept L-Shaped kitchen still follows the basic work triangle and established work zones.

      While the other comments already covered the reasons for the price and what to actually expect from this builder…

      • Michael
        May 16, 2022, 9:07 pm

        James but – as usual – you are trying to explain why it has been done.
        I agree in one point, customizing the layout to owner requests.
        Probably these aren’t aware about workflow during food preparation and prefer as you said location in front of the window. Most of these guys don’t do real cooking but as you stated in other comments eat prefab food which requires pre-heating only. Opting out the dishwasher may be a sign for that.
        For professional chefs and people preferring healthy food from scratch workflow is essential because it saves time.

        • James D.
          May 16, 2022, 10:06 pm

          No, just because the workflow isn’t one you recognize doesn’t mean the owners don’t understand workflow. Workflows just doesn’t exist in a vacuum of no other considerations or ignores how the cook(s) and work space will dictate how that workflow actual works best in reality.

          For instance, if this was a family that experienced traffic jams in the kitchen, like say when kids run to the refrigerator to grab snacks during meal prep time, then the design would work better by spacing the refrigerator slightly farther from the sink and cooktop than the triangle rules would normally dictate to alleviate that congestion and place the fridge closest to the island. Among other reasons the layout should be changed to deal with variables like how many people will be in the kitchen at any one time, whether the workflow needs to be split between more than one person, etc.

          Any professional kitchen designer would point out there’s more to creating a kitchen that the owner will love for years to come than understanding just the default configurations for work triangle and zones, as there’s really no such thing as a universal one size fits all standard that will be optimal for all situations and that goes for all types of cooks from novices to professionals!

          Besides, you should never try to dictate to another cook how they should cook or insinuate that they’re not a real cook if they don’t do it your way!

    This home looks great but why do so many of these have such a large bathroom? Is that maybe what people actually want. I don’t know. I would rather a smaller but well designed bathroom and a little more living space.

    • James D.
      May 16, 2022, 4:56 pm

      It’s custom, so yes, it’s what the owner wanted… Not everyone, just this particular owner… Some do choose smaller bathrooms but the bathroom and kitchen tend to be the hardest for most people to downsize…
