    Nice, love timber frames. Porch is odd.

    Very nice. I would have extended the metal roof to cover the front porch area. You get your shade and keep totally dry during a rain shower. Plus fooling around with a tarp would be a pain.

      Looks as though there is a gutter with a downspout on one side of the cabin. I actually like the tarp awning over the porch. Probably much less costly than a roof extension, removable and easily portable.
      I love everything about this place and am ready to move in. 🙂

    Very sharp. But if it’s not on wheels why not have a more substantial porch roof? Otherwise–I want in.

      Why have a more “substantial”* porch if you don’t need one, let alone want one?

      *subtantial = larger, more costly, conspicuous consumptionism, waste of resources, yadda, yadda, yadda.

        I realize anyone can post here. Some can’t, or will not, read English. My comment was on the “roof”. And who knows what the owner needs? Not you. It’s just my opinion. Some people comment on the houses. And some people, like you, comment on people’s comments’ and opinions–which implies you have an issue with people in general.

          Its possible that part of the build (or all) was trucked in; not allowing for anymore roof. So it’s possible that your opinion was not valid to this build. I would have went for a solid permanent roof myself mainly because it would be cheaper. But there is a lovely aesthetic to a soft roof, especially for holidaying.

    It’s cute but there is almost no storage at all. You’d have to climb up a ladder (where is it) to get to clothing, and you’d be lucky to store 3-4 days worth of food. These tiny house videos never seem to show people driving to town every 3-4 days to get food and do laundry.

      I do hate my tiny fridge in my apartment. I can never fit the food we need for two people! – Tiny House Talk Team

    But I have lived with separate hot and cold water taps in an old house. And they are now again very trendy lately, for reasons I can not understand for purely practical reasons. Impossible to wash in a single warm stream of water from a single tap using those. You get to choose from only too hot or too cold water streams to wash with. And not everyone wants to fill a basin just to wash their hands in warm water. That is the first thing I would replace.

      Ah! So true. We have them in our bathroom and I just want to know why anyone would keep them. (It’s an apartment we rent). Plus, the hot water knob takes 3 full turns to turn on, while the cold is a half turn, so I always wash my hands in icy frigid water. Not fun! — Tiny House Talk Team
