    This is probably the most functional and best looking ones I’ve seen. Love the stairs versus ladder – though they would need to have some carpet or something to make them less slippery, I suspect. The only thing I don’t like is the color of the blue backsplash.

    Love everything about it – except the price.

    I don’t see anything in this TH that justifies the high price tag. It’s nice, but too rich for my blood and bank account.

    Very nice, but that TV is WAY to high for comfortable viewing.

      Unless you are watching from the loft bed – thats how some of us enjoy our tv viewing.

    Toad-stool steps to the lofty place. Thumbs up!

      First time seeing that kind of ladder/stair. Interesting idea indeed.

    A crank toilet. Perfect for an old crank like me.

    I have a habit of looking at the photos before I read the copy or comments. That way I can form my own opinions of what I like or don’t about a home. With this one there are some many interesting things… the kitchen works well for a cook, nice mix of light and dark woods, interesting front door, and it looks like there is even a desk space. All very nice. Then, I saw the price… OMG! I realize that amenities cost but in this case, I think I’d rather spend my money on the Escape Traveler.

    The most GORGEOUS tiny house on wheels EVER!!!! I want this as my future tiny house!

    September 7, 2016, 1:04 am

    Can you say insane…! Because that is what that price is.. I don’t know what some people are thinking about when they build houses like this..Do they just say lets go out today and build a house that most anyone could love and then dash their dreams by sticking a price tag on it that could only keep you dreaming about living in it because you could never afford to pay such an outrageous price…? geeshh….! Nuts..!

    I’d like to know where the other two drawers go. Only two will fit under the couch in the front room. There are lots of ideas to take from this one. That’s what’s so wonderful about this industry. You get to have a say in how, when, where and for how much your little dream home will cost you. Some things can be added later if you’re pinching pennies to get it done. You may also discover that some of the “gotta haves” will not seem so important somewhere along the way.

    Happy Dreaming………

    Does any one have ideas on which computer design programs I should look into to make up my own plans? I’ve heard that CAD is a good one, but haven’t looked into it for a very long time.

    Blessings to our TH Community

      Hi Brandi,

      I am starting with Microsoft Paint in the accessory menu to get the basic idea, floor plan started. Next I use and am learning Goggle Sketchup. There are even tutorials on drawing a Tiny on YouTube, several in fact.

      Happy drawing,

      Brandi….CAD just stands for computer aided design, it’s the general term for that sort of program rather than a specific one. As mentioned, Google Sketchup is free iirc, and you can whip things up pretty quickly in that. 🙂

    Well where do I start, The dishwasher is a waste,Stairs to second loft is an accident waiting to happen,desk space is a waste,Hate the toilet and price is way too high for this house.

      Dishwasher a waste ? Dishwashers save more water than washing by hand !

      “As a baseline, remember that water flows out of your tap at a rate of 3 to 5 gallons per minute. New Energy Star-qualified dishwashers use as little as 3 gallons of water and 1 kilowatt-hour of energy per load. New machines not only use less water and energy but are also better at cleaning dishes, and manufacturers recommend against rinsing dishes by hand before loading a washer. This practice can waste up to 20 gallons of water, while the machine’s rinse cycle requires only 1 to 2 gallons. But if you must rinse your dishes beforehand, use cold water instead of hot.”

    The quality of workmanship is evident. High-end in every respect. This is no cookie-cutter tiny home. Having said that, this just isn’t my style. Too dark and clunky. The stairs look dangerous. Love the dish washer though!

  • Sandy W

    Well, this one certainly gives me ideas on how I want to build my own THOW…and I’m SURE that I can build mine for a lot less than 105k! Thanks for all the ideas though. It’s a quite nice design!

    $263 per square foot is so crazy.

    Do love the solar panels on the roof;
    don’t love the draw cloth in the loft.
    Do love the dutch door and the under-door storage;
    don’t love the backsplash in the kitchen.
    Do love the built in sofa with under storage;
    don’t love the tricky pole staircase.
    Do lover the country kitchen sink;
    don’t love the open shelving.
    Do love the spaciousness;
    don’t love the plank desk & floating bookshelves. (Looks cheap.)
    Do love the powerhouse w/door outside (would like to see inside);
    don’t like the bathroom.
    So, it’s 50/50, but here comes the straw: the sticker-shock price. But it says sold, so for someone, it’s well worth the money.

    There are some things I really like in this house, and others that I like somewhat. The one thing I dislike is the couch/sofa. I can just look at it and be uncomfortable and I doubt anyone could sit on it for very long with any comfort. Maybe it’s just me, but I’d have to trade that out for something more upholstered.

  • Jody
    September 27, 2016, 11:10 pm

    What?!! Sold for $105,000! Did I read that right?

  • Gloria M Moran

    Nice but way too expensive. Don’t see anything that justifies the cost.

    September 28, 2016, 3:00 pm

    I just don’t know why, this one gives me the jeebies!

  • Sue

    Can someone please explain to a non-American, the need for a big fridge/freezer in a tiny home? I’d imagine tiny homes are for 1 or 2 people only? Wouldn’t it be better to have an under-counter fridge/freezer and gain extra worktop space and a more balanced look?

    • Natalie C. McKee

      Hi Sue! As an American now living in Scotland, the biggest difference is our shopping habits. Back in the US I would go shopping once every two weeks. I’d purchase meat in bulk (much less expensive that way!) and freeze portion sizes in our normal freezer. Here, I HAVE to shop at least once a week, if not twice, and I can never buy in bulk because our freezer is super tiny! This means more time at the grocery store (bleck) and more money because I can’t stock up on deals. It’s just a different cultural mindset — Americans tend to have even a little stockpile in the pantry. For me, I never want a tiny fridge/freezer again because of the hassle of shopping more (and I cook every single meal we eat except an occasional date night out).

    I wish they would put some effort to add some kind of expansion with slide outs for one example. I live in a fifth wheel with four slide outs. It makes a big difference.

    • Natalie C. McKee
      February 6, 2017, 7:23 am

      Hi Theo. Check out Tiny Idahomes. They put in lots of slide outs 🙂

    This is just lovely. Great inspirations abound.

    I must say that I am tired of people coming on this site just to beef about costs. Nice things cost more money — adults know that. There are many reasons to consider living tiny, not just the cost of doing so. I have seen quite a range of prices and DIY options here.

    Thank you Tiny House Team!

    Love the country charm, the outside color. The size is great, I would personally go for a 32 or 34 footer for more space. Cost is always associated with size and quality, also the number of appliances and equipment.

    • Natalie C. McKee
      February 7, 2017, 7:38 am

      Yes a little more space might be nice

  • Mary Lou
    February 8, 2017, 10:13 am

    Do you have the information for sourcing the little bathtub? They are very hard to find and very pricey so more options is always useful.

    and to the person asking about computer programs for layout, If all else fails go to the store and buy simple graph paper. that is my preference. I got a house small enough that I did get a large roll of white paper ( like you use to cover tables at weddings) pieced some together and drew it out in real size to make sure I made everything proportioned correctly. It worked!!

    I love the blue backsplash in the kitchen, it goes really well with the wood. The quality of the wood looks fantastic. I love the farmhouse sink in the kitchen. The Dutch door is great. I don’t think this is expensive for a luxury tiny home, looks like they used high end products and you get what you pay for. I do wish someone would explain to me, some of these couches look so uncomfortable (no offense intended). Are they intended for children or skinny people? (No joke).

    • Natalie C. McKee
      February 13, 2017, 8:20 am

      Haha some do look quite uncomfortable haha, I think it’s just a space-saving effort, as well as allows for underneath storage.

    What a lot of folks don’t realize is that most housing costs are by the square foot and most housing in the USA is at least 2400 sq.f. sitting on LAND….Costs for kitchens, bathrooms, heating/cooling systems are static so when you shrink that down to 96 sq.ft. to 300 sq.ft. the costs per sq ft skyrocket. (Except Park Model RV’s) Of course if you built these “tiny homes” in a Factory like Park Models the price and quality will go down about on parr with Stick Built housing.

  • Richard H Chapple Sr

    A lot of cost can be in things one cannot see as well. I would want to see comparisons or explanations to justify the price. Quality of materials for example, type of frame, things that go above and beyond the usual construction methods, so that I could make rational comparisons before I decide whether the cost is out of line or not.
    Our dollar continues to become less worthy as well, we paid 45,000 for our home 31 years ago, today it would list at 145,000.
    The price of this home to me seems very high initially so if I had no more information to justify the cost, I would be saying next.
