    Very nice. You need binoculars to watch the tv, but that’s easy to remedy.

    • Avatar Alex April 14, 2017, 2:45 pm

      Didn’t think about that part! Looks like the TV is built right into the kitchen cabinets right? Interesting! Never seen that done before.

    • Avatar FMorgan April 20, 2017, 7:24 pm

      Yep . . .cold have installed/integrated a pop-up in the island. Otherwise simply LOVELY. I might have gone for a murphy style bed with surround storage and possibly an “Inspector Gadget” type desk built on the flip side. I watch way tooooo much Tiny House Nation!

  • Avatar Rob April 14, 2017, 1:31 pm

    Wonderful place, but..$275k?….in Apache Junction??…no way…maybe Scottsdale…..

    • Avatar Alex April 14, 2017, 2:44 pm

      Thanks for chiming in Rob. I’m not familiar with the area and pricing but either way what a cool place huh?

  • Avatar Mark April 14, 2017, 2:54 pm

    I like it! Are there plans available? Or more stories about it?

  • Avatar Phatkhat April 14, 2017, 8:48 pm

    So much for “tiny” houses not being about conspicuous consumption. Italian marble, indeed. Actually, it isn’t a tiny house, is it? It’s a small house. I joined this site because I was hoping for DIY (read cheap) ideas for living small and sustainably, not for a showcase of horribly expensive tiny mansions for sale at exorbitant prices. Seems the tiny trend is now “trendy” and priced accordingly.

    • Avatar James D. April 15, 2017, 4:12 am

      Nothing stopping you from DIY and doing it cheap… But just like anything else there’s cheap and then there’s luxury…

      Same reason why some people get a basic fuel efficient car while others get high end gas guzzling luxury cars… The market has room for both and everything in between and is more a sign that it’s a growing market that’s appealing to a wider consumer base than it started with…

      Besides, there’s usually a net benefit… Rich people buying similar products means more resources go into that product and that usually makes it easier and more economical for those of us targeting the other end of the spectrum…

      Like, there’s usually a larger range of affordable materials with a larger market… More things can be also reclaimed or have unused materials that can then be repurposed… Such as marble that you can still cut to a useful size, such as for marble tiles, can be had for a fraction of the price of the original big slabs… Making it easier to have nice things in even a low cost house… Another example is the parts they cut off of some slabs can still be used for bathroom counter tops or tinier Tiny House kitchen counter tops but since they can’t sell that at the original price it means big savings that you’ll see more of the more rich people buy such materials…

      Mind, making even a Tiny House still has some waste… But a bigger market means more of that waste can get used/repurposed… Versus one off individual builds… Essentially, think of it like an ecosystem…

      I saw one DIY’er, for example, who got a free shower stall but it was still brand new and unused…

      Other examples of benefit, is manufacturer defects… There are plenty of things you can get for less because of some minor defect… The business still makes their profit off the rich people but can sell the remaining at much lower prices… This would be especially beneficial for things like low E windows for better house insulation values and doesn’t just apply to non-essential luxury items…

      Mind, custom energy efficient Windows can cost from a few hundred to a few thousand each… So get thing at a much lower price can be a real boon to a DIY’er project…

      Another example is shipping containers… New they’re like over $23,000… But used you can get them for a few thousand for a nice cheap DIY option…

      So keep in mind that some of these high priced stuff helps provide some of the low priced stuff too…

        Frankly, none of us should be expecting EVERY house, design, location, layout or price should meet our needs. You know, diverse people, diverse needs. Anyone here can make this house…just swap out materials for what you can afford and what you absolutely want. Personally, I just look for ideas. Thanks to these posts, I’ve nearly got MY perfect house designed. BTW, I really like the design here. I’m an inveterate re-organizer. I rarely keep a living room in a particular setup. I like to mix it up and that is very hard with most tiny houses. This one though…you can do just about anything.

        • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee May 26, 2017, 3:50 pm

          I totally agree Vivian 🙂 And I’m so glad that you have been inspired by the posts here! That is our main hope here at Tiny House Talk.

    Upper Middle Class Play House.

  • Avatar Patricia April 15, 2017, 8:53 am

    I don’t care what anyone else thinks or says, I absolutely ADORE this house. I love the desert and this house is perfect for a desert setting. Sure, we can’t afford the price, but I don’t care—just looking at it makes me feel happy. There is not one thing I would change, indoors or outdoors, except maybe the TV. However, I don’t imagine living out there with the rooftop terrace and patio that we would be watching much TV. As to the rooftop terrace—there is nothing like sleeping out under the stars on a crisp desert night. This is like a dream house.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 17, 2017, 8:05 am

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Patricia 🙂 Sometimes it’s fun to “window shop.” That was me with the tiny castle last week hehe.

  • Avatar Alison April 15, 2017, 12:32 pm

    I wish the shed out back matched the style of the main house. I like how the interior feels spacious and cool. The bathroom sink seems a bit cramped. Nice little getaway for desert lovers.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 17, 2017, 8:01 am

      That would be nice. It’s a cool spot.

  • Avatar Brad April 15, 2017, 5:45 pm

    Living in Phoenix I have been to AJ many times. This property is nice and open. But with that pool being there, unfenced, you better love wildlife because they will be visiting every evening 😁.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 17, 2017, 7:43 am

      Oh thanks for that warning! Yikes haah.

    • Avatar KJ May 25, 2017, 1:24 pm

      Yup. check it for scorpions before getting in. Javelina (wild Pigs) love those watering holes. I love everything about it except the watering hole.

  • Avatar BRADLEY Boltz April 21, 2017, 10:23 am

    The overall aesthetic is nice but the bedroom invading the living area or vice versa is extremely lamo for “high designo” ($500 per sf, ouch!). Roof deck is cool feature except for not having direct access from the living area which detaches it from the house.
    Needs a retractable TV mounted in a hidden space at the back of the kitchen island (should be able to do at $500 per sf). TV in kitchen is mounted too high for comfortable viewing from living area. Maybe an electric pull down screen and projection unit would make more like a home theater affect from the living area. Still better than the tired looking THOWs so prominantly featured on this site!-bRad

  • Avatar Liz May 25, 2017, 3:40 pm

    What an amazing setting and home. All I can say is “YEP!!”

  • Avatar Gabriella May 25, 2017, 4:23 pm

    Astonishingly like a mirage in a desert.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee May 26, 2017, 3:44 pm

      It really does look like that!

  • Avatar Susan May 25, 2017, 7:59 pm

    Beautiful. A bit costly, but the views are perfect, as is the house. All and all, still a smaller foot print.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee May 26, 2017, 3:35 pm

      Absolutely! And a smaller footprint is awesome.

  • Avatar Mark Downey May 27, 2017, 12:49 pm

    Vivian and Patricia,
    I couldn’t have expressed my thoughts better than the way both of you ladies did.
    It IS beautiful, and there are many with very negative opinions about this one and many others. I don’t understand why someone feels the need to squash another person’s dream.
    I love it and I think it is worth every penny. They even have my same couch in the photos!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee May 29, 2017, 4:11 pm

      Yes! No dream-squashing necessary 🙂

  • Avatar Joseph March 11, 2018, 4:33 am

    Beautiful. Inspiring. Take what you like! Leave the rest. Appreciate the inspiration! Vanilla is a flavor, that’s a fact. Some like vanilla! This however is a Baskin Robbins example and fantastic. I myself have not had vanilla ice cream in years! I showed this tiny home in my class here in Hồ Chi Minh City, Vietnam and the reaction was wonderful! The dessert location to some is beyond their imagination. In a land of tiny homes this gives a totally different perspective to ideas of the USA. THANK YOU FOR THIS POST.

    As for the cost, some can build, some cannot, some can facilitate while others can only purchase as presented. Not a right or wrong, only different!

  • Avatar Joseph March 11, 2018, 4:48 am

    I’m very sure my play on words gets an interesting critique! I had to override the Apple self correct twice!!! Looking forward! jd n hcmc
