The Raised area is NOT the bedroom! It’s the Living Room.
The master bedroom is at the other end of the house. Then the loft bedroom is above the bathroom/hallway area.
Did you not watch the video?
Did I miss something or how do you actually get INTO the loft after you go up the stairs? And the main living area is where? Or do I actually need to watch the video?
Video always helps with the homes Minimaliste shows off…
But as with most lofts, you’d access it just like you would get in and out of a bed… The standing platform before the loft puts you high enough for most people to easily transition in and out without much difficulty… You usually don’t want to have steps going all the way to the loft because of the low ceiling would force people to contort themselves into a almost walking curled up position to fit and that makes it harder to keep balance as well… versus just standing next to the loft and just crawl or shimmy back into it and reverse to get out with a lot less effort…
While living space is across from the kitchen because the corner area is being used as a main floor bedroom but a Murphy bed, or convertible couch bed, would let that bedroom double as a living room as well if you prefer more separation… Or, if you don’t need the loft for a guest bed then that can be a lounge or daybed area instead…
Every one of their builds are custom, so everything is per their clients preferences and they can completely change it for the build for their next client…
Correction, main level bedroom is at the other end. So that raised floor area is the main living room area…
I think she means how do you get into the loft from in front of the closet? It looks like a pretty tall step from that closet floor into the loft. Do you sit down and swing your feet up? Do you crawl into that space? I was wondering the same thing.
Apologies if what I stated seems confusing… You do either crawl or sit down and slide into that space. The purpose of comparing it to getting in and out of a bed was to point out that it’s not meant to be used like a step at all.
Beds are much higher than a step, typically 16″ to 24″, with some going as high as 36″, and you are generally not going to intend to try to step onto the bed but rather directly switch to either a crawling or sliding position, if not immediately sitting or laying down.
While mind it’s specifically avoiding the issue of dealing with steps going all the way to the loft because then you’re walking into the ceiling and needing to bend over and even contort into unnatural positions as you continue to walk up and into the loft, as you try to maintain balance at the same time…
There’s just always trade offs getting a standing height space next to a loft because of the ceiling height limit and not being able to place the loft lower but the edge of the loft just needs to be below the height of your hips to allow for natural movement as you can easily fit your whole torso into the loft and only need to bend you hip and knee joints to then get the rest of your body into the loft, instead of your whole body…
Sitting and swinging your legs up as you slide back and into the loft is probably the easiest method and avoids dealing with the hard loft floor with your knees, avoids needing to balance to crawl, etc. and that is how he demonstrated getting in the loft in the video… The part he tours the loft is right after the 12:30 mark…
The bed platform in the loft is high, so you sort of boost yourself up to it backwards, in a sitting position. A short person might need a step stool. I saw another tiny house that had a fold-down step stool on the side wall that worked for that purpose.
I still have an issue for getting up into the loft bedroom from the area in front of the white cabinet. The difference in height looks to be at least 2 feet, possibly 3 & imho is NOT similar to getting into bed. That is a very big step up into the loft & your explanation wouldn’t work for a lot of people.
Lofts in general aren’t going to work for all people. So that’s almost a given under any circumstance and I understand the concern but like I already pointed out, beds do go as high as 36″ (3 feet) and even most common beds are still in the 16″ (1 foot 4 inches) to 24″ (2 feet) range. So between 2-3 feet is high but it’s still in the range of what height beds can be at and as also pointed out you’re transitioning to a more horizontal position so it’s not suppose to be treated like a step.
Understand, as a loft there’s no second floor, only an additional section to the main floor that unless you can place it lower by not putting anything that requires standing height below it means it has to be too high to just walk into it without issue with the limited headroom.
There’s just always going to be trade offs with a loft… Ladder, stairs, and standing platforms all have their trade offs. Closest you can do to get around the trade offs, and still technically have a loft, would be an elevator bed but that won’t work in all layouts, can’t be over the bathroom for example, and means maintenance plus adding something that can break down on you as the trade off…
The standing platform just has fewer issues than the alternative. Since having stairs going up to the loft would be even harder for most people, especially with a THOW with a angled roof shape that can force them to also lean out past the stairs while they transition to and from the loft, while simultaneous transitioning from the more horizontal position to and from a standing position, and still keeping balance and not hitting anything like the ceiling.
In comparison, sitting on the edge of the loft and just scooting yourself in or out of it without needing to balance or worry about hitting anything is arguably much preferable to most people even if it’s a bit high. This is why you’d see it in most designs. Like the recent article, “Chuy’s House 32×10 Homesteader Deluxe” that showcases a THOW from a different builder, Indigo River Tiny Homes, also puts a similar height from the standing platform to the loft and even takes it a step further with a L shaped wrap around standing platform for the master loft.
Regardless, you can always modify it if needed. Like a fold out step can easily be added and folded away when using the standing platform to use the closet to get dressed, etc., or the bottom drawer can be extended out to function as another step, or you can build a pull out step/shelf in between the drawers, or the top two shelf cubbies on the other side can be replaced with a step going into the loft to split that height in half for an actual step up, etc. All options just involves some trade offs that the owner will have to decide are worth it or not…
This design, like all of their builds, are custom and optimized for the owner but they can customize it however their next client wants or design one completely differently and maybe not even have lofts but regular bedrooms instead. Along with simple modifications or renovations the owner can do themselves.
I went to their website for a quote and to order a built and they are no longer taking orders for 2021. That’s too bad because I need one this year. I will keep searching other builders I guess.
Builders are in extremely high demand this year, it’s one of the reasons for the rising costs as demand for materials have gone way up and the suppliers have not really been able to fully keep up with the demand…
While it has also become hard for builders to find enough workers… There was a trade gap before all this, as there hasn’t been enough people getting into the trades for decades, and it’s only become more glaring a issue now… But the high demand for production means it’s hard to train anyone now as they need people to go straight to work producing homes and can’t afford anything that would slow production…
It’s so bad right now issues with builders being completely booked throughout 2021 actually started back in 2020… If you don’t already have a builder/contractor you may have to look at a temporary alternative if you need something this year as most have already started taking orders for next year…
Probably, not the best time to buy.
“…they need people to go straight to work…” Well, those people will not be available if someone doesn’t take the time to train them; sad commentary on the employment environment.
It’s a luxurious house. I wouldn’t mind living in it, though I’d paint the cabinets a lighter color. The louvered blinds in loft open over the downstairs bedroom, which might be odd for some situations. But they do give the loft a nice feel.
I like three things about this tiny home: the wood floor, the wood ceiling, and the stone backsplash behind the kitchen counter area.
