    it probably seems unimportant unless someone passes out in the bathroom, and you cannot open the door to get them out…bathroom doors should SWING OUT if at all possible.

      Or be pocket doors, sliding into the wall between the rooms without entering either room to do it. That’s more common in tiny houses anyway, where the space to open a swinging door is usually not available, or at least better spent on other things.

      In general, I’m seeing a lot of space to stuff equipment in this “house” and not enough places for human beings to exist, doing human things. I’m used to small spaces (I grew up in New York apartments) and I like them, but there’s no couch in this place; no living area, no chairs… just a cold plastic bench seat behind the table, which doesn’t appear to fold up and get out of the way. There’s noplace to walk around even for a couple of steps, and no room to stand in the kitchen without bumping into the table end.

      I can’t really imagine using it, let alone with three people in it. I don’t think it necessarily has to be bigger (for three it probably does if one of them isn’t an infant, but not for one or two), but it needs to be better arranged, and have more stuff which can fold up and get out of the way of people who aren’t using them, so there’s room for the people to stretch out and be comfortable.

    I like the curved window that extends onto the roof. I agree with Naomi, above, that there’s not enough space to just be. The dining table and bench are functional, but not where I’d want to relax. I do like to see a variety of styles, and this one is certainly different from most. But I can’t picture who would want this settled on their property. Kind of a 1960s or ‘70s spaceship-modern vibe.

    Good point Mary. However, you can probably remove the door and hang up beads, shower curtain, drapes, or something else for privacy.

    Meh…looks too space age for my tastes.

    Cannot imagine even one person being comfortable in this. Only use I see would be for emergency, where all it was used for was sleeping and eating. Hand yes, door design for bathroom not safety-oriented.

    Like many very small–tiny tiny units–they are really only to provide shelter or sleep…office/
    These will make great A.D.U. (Accessory Dwelling Units), and in places like Calif where they just legalized these because of little affordable housing, these will be a great (maybe needing some nice touches for outside aesthetics) as they will be safe, and resistant to other decay on the outside with little upkeep–keeping them from being costly or unsightly over time if a landlord or homeowner doesnt upkeep as they should. These type would also be great for rebuilding places that have been hurricane ravaged. You could add a nice 3 or 4 season porch or a great outside area for inexpensive additional room for relaxing. They aren’t for everyone, I believe the furniture etc is staged, & could be softened easily.
    They are focusing on safety, sustainability, efficiency. Which in places like Japan, where square footage is premium, earthquake & Typhoon prone, I can see where it will be attractive!

    Looking on previous comments shows how different tastes and thoughts are.
    But considering structural issues and pricing it probably can’t beaten by many TH beside ISBU based ones.
    It is earthquake, fire and hurricane or typhoon resistant. Four glassed windows and tempered glass used don’t require shutters or bars. Being a ‘Smart Home’ from the factory and optional 6000 W solar system as electric floor heating are unique, too. But I couldn’t find prices for these on their website.
    I have been always a Bauhaus fan with its uncluttered and clear design based on geometric forms as a few classic materials like leather, glass, chrome tubes to name a few only.
    Although I am belonging to the mid of last century generation this is my style. Bright, plenty of glass, easy to maintain and well thought technically park models.
    But there are a few downsides to consider.
    Firstly, bathroom. Door discussion as said. But for me a wet bathroom is a no go at this size.
    Secondly, kitchen. Although there are all essential appliances and even more offered, it lacks – beside the angle solution of the smallest model – counter space to be practical for those, who love to cook and not into heating prefab meals only.
    Thirdly, outdoor living. A tiny space requires more outdoor areas and living in FL you need shade. It lacks on covered porch and/or terrace space which should be an option not only for humans but for your car, too.
    Beside that well designed and engineered TH. Well done.

      Really good thoughts, Michael. And yes, so many different tastes!
