Philip & Jackie’s Window-Filled Tiny Idahome THOW


Philip & Jackie wanted a tiny house with tons of windows, and Tiny Idahomes delivered just that! Hopefully they have an awesome private spot to put their THOW with great views.

Inside they have the most amazing u-shaped kitchen with lovely robin’s egg blue cabinets. They opted for a loft bedroom, and even had unique stained glass sconces installed next to the bed. The bathroom features a neat leaf-shaped sink.

You can get all the specs after the photo tour. The home, as shown, cost $68,722, but the standard model starts at $46K.

    The secret for me to go Tiny would be lots and lots and lots of windows and like here, they would open. And a pretty, natural setting. This is a beautiful space.

    I totally agree when it comes to importance of windows at tiny spaces. Putting outwards opening windows instead of sliders would help to increase cross ventilation and reduce need of air condition.
    A combination of top and side hinged ones would allow to let some open when it’s raining. In FL with common hurricanes this opening type has the advantage of being pressed into window frame instead
    out of it. Using laminated glass avoids severe damage but shutters would avoid them totally beside providing shade when open.
    For privacy there are excellent horizontal shades between the glass which don’t catch dust and avoid curtains which take interior space again and make it smaller again.
    The u-shaped kitchen is great when you love cooking and want to use it by more than one person at the same time.
    Unfortunately the arrangement of sink, fridge and cook top neither follows any logical way of food preparation nor design rules for left or right handler, which is sadly common in many THOW. With limited space it’s even more important.
    Personally, I need a bigger stand up refrigerator with freezer under instead on top of it and would put upper storage cabinet at least across driving direction which helps also to widen the place optically.
    I don’t like the loft (as usual) and would go for an elevator be instead.

      I would disagree that there’s no logic to the arrangement, as these are custom built and specifically designed for the owner, which means everything was done for a reason…

      Reasons just may not be ones you agree with or are for things you may not be considering. Like some people prefer to have a way to fill pots at the stove and avoid any heavy lifting. The faucet in this sink can be pulled out and extended over to the stove area for that function, which traditionally would have been a retractable wall faucet/pot filler that you may still see in some high end homes or older traditional homes.

      The sink can also handle more heat than the counter top, which is Corian that maxes out its tolerance at about 212 °F, and the sink can have additional accessories that give it extra functionality for food prep that can greatly reduce the need to have counter space between the sink and stove, as another reason the owner chose this layout…

      While cooking on the stove isn’t the only way people may cook these days, as there are air fryers, pressure cookers, etc. that a wide open counter top space may be preferable to give the flexibility of arranging the table top appliances as needed.

      Not all foods need to be cooked as well, such as salads, etc. and having counter space away from the stove can be preferable in that case… Or long cooking times may also make it preferable so the timing of adding prepped food can be done over a long period as the specific recipe may require for more control…

      Even refrigerators can be optional to some people as there are alternative ways to store food that either don’t require refrigeration, such as fermentation, canning, etc. or have another way to achieve the same function. Evaptainers, being one such example… If they have a homestead, they could also opt for root cellars, spring house, etc. and actually have more food storage capacity than most as they can have enough to last months to years in that arrangement…

      Seeing the home before the owner moves in can also be misleading as often there will be missing furniture, appliances, etc. that won’t be there until later and thus how the owner intends to use the home may not be apparent by just looking at it… Especially, if the builder staged it for photos as the owners actual choices may be completely different.

      Some people can also have very different ways they prefer to use their kitchen and it should be remembered that the owner is the one who has to use it. So it has to make sense to them but it just may not be what someone else prefers or is considered standard.

      The rules of design are mainly for what works in general but that doesn’t mean it’s best for what works for all ways of how people may want to use their kitchens. Some people don’t even cook and have a raw food diet, for example. So standard layouts won’t work for everyone and as most THOWs are custom built that is something that will be shown from time to time…

        James, I have learned over time that you know almost everything better. I agree that there are custom built THOW but not all of them as well as food and eating habits vary.
        But there kitchen planer for a reason.
        Cooking a meal consists briefly of four steps.
        Firstly get ingredients from pantry and/or fridge.
        Secondly, food preparation (f.e. washing vegetables, meat, fruits) chopping, mixing and more.
        Thirdly, cooking.
        Fourthly, plating or portioning.
        To work fast and not run around you should start at the location of fridge and pantry followed by sink to reach stove with counter space in between of them.
        It’s important to consider if a left handler or right handler is working in the kitchen.
        Left handler working on the steps above to the left and right handler to the right.
        This makes cooking of meals fast and easy.
        If you only throw frozen or prefab stuff into the microwave it’s not important.
        But in that case you don’t need a u-shaped kitchen as shown, a 3 ft mini kitchen will do.

          Michael, I don’t know everything, and would never claim to, but I do know enough to know your kitchen planer doesn’t work for all styles of kitchen use because I have met people who have problems with those standards. Like the order of everything isn’t always done the same by everyone because not all meals are prepared the same way. There’s a world of different ways people can prepare their meals that don’t have to resemble what you are used to at all.

          Yes, there are general rules that fit most and that’s why they exist and are recommended but the point I’m making is it doesn’t fit everyone in all situations and when that happens then they stop making sense to adhere to…

          Like some layouts are for people with special physical needs that can’t move around the kitchen the same way as may be considered normal, like someone with limited strength may not find it efficient to need to lift heavy pots full of water from the sink to the stove when it’s far easier to just place the pot on the stove and then fill it there and is one of many examples of how alternatives layouts may make it much more functional for them… There’s a lot more variation than just left-right handedness that different people may be effected by that will effect what is efficient for them…

          There’s also diets that requires different order of preparation and even different methods of cooking or process they use to make the food edible… Again, I point out examples like people who have a raw food diet or primarily use other methods of cooking that don’t rely on a stove, among many other possible examples that would not work well with the standard norms and thus would work better with a very different kitchen planer that would be optimized for them…

          Use of the kitchen may not even be limited to using it as a kitchen as one of the things you’ll run into with small spaces is that some spaces will be multi-use and like missing furniture, appliances, etc. that you won’t see until the owner moves in are factors that will change what will actually be most efficient use of that space… People can also have related needs for the kitchen that will be best served by non-traditional layouts. Such as home run business that requires access to the kitchen and counter space for the product they are making… Reasons for layouts aren’t limited to just a few considerations when you account for everyone that can have different considerations for their needs…

          Understand, people go custom because not everyone will fit standards that don’t account for them. Standards may be great for the majority but ignoring the rest is just unfair to everyone else. Otherwise we could just have one size fits all homes for everyone and not need to account for diversity and individuality… The Orwellian dream of conformity!

          So yes, there are reasons for standards but also reasons why some will choose to go another way…

    What a beautiful home. I don’t like when some people feel the need to “tear something down” to show how smart they are (in their own mind). If you like it say so if you don’t just shut up and let them enjoy their home. No one is impressed with your better than you attitude.

    Imagine building Tiny houses that bump up high and out for more room after they park

    There’s not too many that take advantage of the new technologies & materials to enable
    Tiny’s growth system for that luxury feeling of large in a Tiny

      It’s usually because it also bumps up the price, by a lot… Or adds more labor and maintenance that not everyone wants to deal with…

      There are some exceptions, like a company called Boxabl offers a fairly reasonable priced option of a modular style structure that travels folded up and can be easily unfolded at the destination for a much larger footprint that can also be combined with other additional units but they’re not yet at the easy to afford price range that most looking to go tiny are hoping for and may not work for those who need to be able to travel easily or may run into local code and zoning requirements because it gets placed on a foundation…

      Though, there’s always traditional RV’s but they aren’t as well built as houses and are more intended for recreational usage but some people can make them work for their needs and it can be the preferred option for those who want to travel easily…

      While some people opt to just combine multiple units if they need more space and there are modular houses that can be scaled to almost any size, depending on budget and local restrictions.

    I actually learn from the folks who don’t agree with a design [or each other] as it gives me another way to look at the different aspects of the home. Healthy debates are good. Kumbaya. 🙂
