Heritage Model by Mountain Lake Tiny Homes in Texas

Pastel mint green exterior with grey and white accents.

Spacious living room with beautiful wood ceilings.

Loft bedroom accessible via moving ladder steps.

A close-up peak into the loft bedroom.

Kitchen sink and cabinets for storage.

Stove and refrigerator with a handy pot and utensil rack.

On-demand hot water for endless showers.

Awesome standing shower stall.

Residential-style toilet in the bathroom.

Where we can be found:

We’re located near Lake Texoma in a region that is known for great recreation opportunities and also a booming housing market. Our desire is to build tiny houses for people looking for quality construction and the unique amenities and advantages that tiny living offers.  Building tiny houses for recreational use or permanent long-term living is what we do.

Heritage Model:

The Heritage model has a cottage look to the exterior while the interior is a bit “rustic industrial”. It has pine T&G walls and ceilings and even a custom T&G aromatic cedar bathroom. The bathroom features a full shower and toilet. The kitchen has shaker-style cabinetry and larger (not quite full-sized) stainless steel appliances. The range and on-demand water heater are propane. The mini-split AC/heater unit is electric. It’s got a 50 amp RV hook-up for the electrical system.

The sleeping area is an 8’x8′ loft accessed by a movable ladder/step. There’s still some area in the living room for storage sofa or sofa/bed, or whatever you can envision for this roomy area. Cost: $47,500.

What’s next:

It’s been a fun project to build and we’re excited to get going on our next one. Probably a 26′ model with a double loft and lots of sleeping and cooking area for the recreation enthusiasts who are looking for something more then a typical RV. Something for  a base living area for their outdoor activities. We offer design build capabilities so bring us your ideas and we’ll turn your ideas for a THOW into a reality.

    I am interested in your tiny homes

    Need to work on the full time living practicalities of the design…

    Cooking range should not be placed right next to the fridge and the spice rack should have some buffer to avoid issues when using the oven… Would have been better to swap it with the kitchen sink…

    Also, when placing the kitchen directly under the sleeping loft you should emphasize good ventilation but you have no overhead vent for the cooking range and just a small window… So whoever lives in this will have issues with moisture while cooking, as well as odors that will permeate the sleeping loft… Excess moisture under the loft mattress can also lead to mold issues… Mind, the bathroom is also below the loft in this design…

    The bathroom vent should always be placed near the shower as it’s purpose is to vent excess moisture but you have it on the opposite side of the room, over the toilet… You could have moved the window a bit to make room for the vent closer to the shower if it was too tight…

    As is, the moisture from a shower has to move all across the bathroom before it can be vented and if the pocket door isn’t closed then it can seep into the living space and has a greater chance of seeping up to the loft…

    Or, if you had put the loft a bit forward, you could have boxed off the back corner to put an overhead vent for the shower and extended the box across the back wall to form a shelf for storage in the loft… With the ladder in the middle there’s not really a reason to have that wide a gap between the loft and the forward end roof… and with the vent moved off the bathroom wall it would have given room for more storage in the bathroom with another shelf or cabinet…

    I’m not sure, but it also doesn’t look like you put a emergency egress rated window in the loft, which should be standard for safety in case of fire…

    While the ladder is a okay design, short of putting in stairs… It doesn’t seem you considered the difficulty of getting past it for someone trying to say get to the bathroom in the middle of the night… The kitchen counter top corner should be rounded to avoid injury in that scenario… Right now it’s only designed for someone leaning against it from in front of it but not coming from the side where they can hit that corner head on…

    A fold up or slide out extension for the counter top would have also alleviate concerns about having enough counter top space to do prep, etc.

    There’s also a number of storage tricks you could have used… Like the part of the counter in front of the sink you could have hinged to have a little tilt out shelf that can be used to store the paper towels, sponges, etc. and keep them out of the way…

    Since the pocket door is on the shower side, you could have used the other side by the toilet for some built-in shelving instead of fully siding that interior wall…

    Ikea magnetic bars and under cabinet pull down shelf are another two examples…

    While, if you had put the loft on the opposite side and reversed the roof layout… You would have left yourself plenty of space to deal with the ventilation issues, could have placed the mini-split on the same side as the on-demand water heater to keep all protrusions on one side of the building and the mini-split could have been placed high to avoid needing to hide the tubing to the interior unit…

    Depending where it’s parked, placing mini-splits high also helps prevent their theft…

    While the reversed layout would have also allowed descending the ladder and walking directly into the bathroom at night with no worries about pumping into the kitchen counter…

    So, yeah, there’s some things you could improve in the next design…

    I love the ceilings, the countertops, subway tile, and is that CEDAR in the bathroom?! Wonderful!

    I’m with James. I get the impression the design was done by a draftsman who had only seen tiny houses in exterior photos. At some point – if there isn’t already – there should be some ergonomic and utility design guidelines or best practices for tiny homes. You can deliver more perceived value at the exact same cost. You just have to work at it and amortize the design cost over time.

    Yacht designers, whether power or sail, have to contend with all sorts of design constraints, yet manage to provide comfortable and aesthetically pleasing interiors that function well and feel authentic. And there are some very tiny homes that work really well, but not many of them. In order to propagate fresh products and ideas, we need to continuously be evaluating tiny homes for how well they work as much as the look and the price point.
