Mini Mansion Chic Shack Lime Green THOW

This is Mini Mansions Tiny Home Builder‘s 20’ Chic Shack Lime Green THOW that’s for sale.

I went through this terrible phase in middle school of wanting everything — from my shoes to my backpack — to be lime green. Instead of embodying my 13-year-old self’s idea of fashion, Mini Mansions creates a bright, classy and chic home with grey bead board, white trim and just the right number of beautiful lime green touches worthy of a true adult (Love that door!).

    If I could live this small, I would adore this place!!! Dreamsville!!!

    Nice work! Looks so cozy too and the white a fantastic contrast to the metalic gray of the outside. Two thumbs up!

    Very nice tiny house! I’m loving the colors – not too monochromatic & boring, but also not too dark or obnoxious. However, I always wonder about a certain design aspect that many TH builders seem to use (applies more to houses with only one loft, not two)… and that question is why do they always seem to place the [master] loft right over the kitchen?? In doing so, there’s barely any room in the kitchen to utilize the vertical space for cabinets, etc…. THEN, b/c of no vertical storage, they end up using much more floor space for the kitchen, leaving less space for everything else! Not that anybody should care, but my preference would be to have a sofa and living area at one far end of the TH, and build the loft over that area – ‘cuz what do you mainly do in a living area? …Sit!!!… And do you really need tons of head room or vertical storage in your sitting area?…. No! Idk, is there something about this arrangement that is bad, and that I don’t know about?? Am I alone on this one? Or is anyone pickin’ up what I’m puttin’ down? Peace.

      Haha it’s a good point Marie — I saw a living room-under-master-loft the other day and thought, “Huh! That works so nicely!” 🙂 It’s definitely a design worth pursuing!

      Hello Marie!

      Your ideas sounds like a fantastic layout! When we are building a spec home, this is our “go to” layout. Most people we talk to regarding floor plans want the kitchen and bathroom on separate ends of the home for sanitary reasons. In such a small space, it is a real issue. We can certainly build any layout a client wants as long as it is structurally feasible. Thanks so much for the kind words. This home makes me smile every time I walk in it. Such a happy place to be!

      I would think it would be a weight distribution issue. You need to have the majority of the weight of a tow-able unit at and forward of the axles. Bigger loft, more weight — kitchens also tend to be weightier as do baths. I know sometimes that gets reversed and the kitchen is aft, but that causes, weight wise, major towing problems. But, I am not a builder and just surmising from what I have seen out there. I know my trailer has two bedrooms (no loft), the main bedroom is forward toward the hitch then living room, kitchen, bath and the 2nd smaller bedroom is at the rear of the trailer, but has been changed into a dressing area – closets and drawers. But this setup only puts about 600 pounds on my hitch. I just know that weight distribution is a major issue in building a THOW as you can lose control and dump over an incorrectly weighted unit and there goes your house.k Just a thought.

    Ooops! One more question… I love TH’s, but have seen many that have no couch — how can this be comfortable living?? Or to have only a few stools and a very uncomfortable-looking wooden bench?? Are couches taboo to some TH enthusiasts? …. “Come one, honey! Let’s snuggle up on our hard-as-rocks bench, and see who cries first!”

      Marie, I like your LR idea, it would give you more headspace in the loft and I’ve also read concerns about it being unhealthy to sleep over a fridge because of EMF exposure. Your couch comment made me laugh. I’ve noted people talking about upgrading to a real couch in their tiny for comfort and for cuddling.

        Hi Wendy… not really an issue with EMF radiation, it’s everywhere and, being radiation, it radiates outwards in a ball fashion, so you are going to get bombarded with radiation no matter what. And, to my knowledge, there are no statistics which point to EMF radiation from domestic appliances being a major health issue.

      Hello again!

      Ok! So the couch… In this layout the couch has to be built over the fenders of the trailer. First we build a “fender box” to enclose and insulate the fenders. It also hides the water lines (which are all ran on the inside of the house to prevent freezing) and has storage area underneath. The couch has an 8″ memory foam mattress. It may not look comfy, but I dozed off in 2 seconds. It is actually amazing and very cozy to snuggle on. I, however, am still on the hunt for a real sofa that I can “chop” the back legs off and set on the fender box. Thanks for your feedback!

      Almost every time I see these tiny houses they think of everything but the actual part of living space. No sofa. Small uncomfortable chairs or a bench. Marie is correct. Mine has a nice little mini sofa and an easy chair. Makes it comfortable and inviting.

    February 24, 2017, 7:24 pm

    Very nice and if I am understanding this right, the price is equally as nice under 40 K……!

    First, let me say I think this is a nice build with good utilization of the available space. Also, correct me if I am wrong, but I believe this does have two loft spaces – one with no way to get up to it that I could see, since the ladder to the main loft seems custom built for that loft.
    I also like the color scheme. I do think $40,000 is too high for a 20 foot fairly basic unit. That toilet paper roll placement would never work — I for one would be constantly banging my already banged up knees on it. I do not know where else you would put it, but it needs to not be there. Maybe you could dangle it on a string out that oversized window that also does not need to be there — talk about no privacy, why oh why?
    Nice to see a larger size refrigerator and not an under counter one. The pillows on the couch will be covered in grease and spatters in no time with the placement of that hotplate and really no place to use it where that would not happen. One would need to put some kind of partition there to keep that from happening and heaven help if you accidentally drop a hot greasy skillet on the poor sole sitting on the couch — not that any of us are that clumsy LOL. Anyway, it is a well constructed and would be great for a single person. Thanks for sharing.

      The description says there’s a telescopic ladder for the guest loft! Not used frequently so stairs would take up necessary space, as would a ladder. 🙂

    In looking at the ceiling it looks as if there are water stains or is that just the grain of the wood?

    Really great features! I love the use of the induction burners, that’s my plan. Can be put away if you want. Really nicely done!

      They certainly are handy!
