      No doubt! Did you watch the video tour too?

  • Chuck April 22, 2018, 6:01 pm

    I wouldn’t change a thing. The price is a little steep for what it is tho.

    • Alex April 22, 2018, 6:39 pm

      Would be interesting to see a basic version of it done for less, wouldn’t it?

      It’s a high end build, mind this is designed to ensure the owner is comfortable in even the coldest Canadian winters, as well as allow it to be completely off-grid, and this is pretty big as far as Tiny Houses go…

      They could certainly build something cheaper but like anything it depends what the customer wants and what it’ll take to provide it…

    I think more tiny houses should be 10 or 12 feet wide. The 8.5-foot-wide requirement is for towing without getting a permit, but I understand the permit is pretty cheap and easy to get; and the house will very seldom get moved anyway, as we’re not talking about travel trailers, just movable houses.

    • James D. April 22, 2018, 11:17 pm

      Yes, that’s correct and in some states like Texas you can even go 14 feet wide.

      However, this usually means converting a trailer originally designed for 8′ 6″ wide to the wider sizes and adds more material, work, etc. cost that puts a price premium on the extra size it can provide.

      Though, with layouts up to 14′ x 40′ you can basically have 560 Sq Ft… Versus the normal 150 to 300 Sq Ft most fall into…

      While, to give an idea how big they can actually go, Will Smith’s custom Travel Trailer has super slide outs and slideup/pop up roof that all together increases total space to 1200 Sq Ft… But that’s a $2.5 million product…

      But once the technology gets cheaper, it’s very likely Tiny Houses are going to get significantly bigger and there won’t be as much a trade off for mobility.

      Companies like Ten Fold Engineering have developed ways for structures to be folded up into a compact shape for transport but unfold to multiple times larger sizes and this includes houses…

        I’m still interested in tiny, not 560 sq. ft., let alone 1200 (1200 is almost as big as our current house in SoCal worth nearly half a million dollars, and now with the kids grown and gone, I’d like to scale waaaaaay down and live more simply and own less), but it seems like the 8.5′-wide-ones make it kind of like living in a toothpaste-tube box, long and super skinny. I’m sure the extra width would make it much nicer, even if you don’t necessarily go for more square feet.

        • James D. April 23, 2018, 1:27 am

          Yes, wider allows for more flexible layouts and design options.

          Even if the total sq ft is the same, like a 10′ x 20′ would be roughly the same as a 8.5′ x 24′ but you can do things like have a hallway going past the bathroom instead of through it to reach a bedroom, for example.

          8.5′ or thinner tends to make layouts very linear from front to rear… Also, that’s one of the reasons so many focus on vertical space and opt for things like lofts instead of bedrooms as otherwise they require a too long house that starts feeling like a tunnel.

          Though, another consideration is how thick your walls are going to be… Typically, a Tiny House would be around 6″ with 2×4 framing with siding, interior finishings, etc.

          This provides enough room for 2-3 inches of insulation, which is plenty if using something like closed cell spray foam, but some extreme climates require more and then you can have walls over 8 inches thick, which means you can lose anywhere from a foot to a foot and a half of interior width from what the exterior dimensions are…

          This is why some may have an odd number like 9 feet or like this one has at 10.5 feet to maintain optimal interior width.

          While some designs fudge the dimensions with bump outs and cantilevered sections or go all out with slide outs or other mechanism to expand the space when parked.

          Mind, things like fold outs can be for things like having a porch/deck and not just for adding to interior space… and that can include things like ramps or stairs to make it easier to set up at a given location.

          Though, keeping a more static design will reduce wear and tear versus mechanical systems that will eventually break down but there are always trade offs and ranges of options…
