418 Sq. Ft. Sandpiper: New Prefab Home by ORCA

This post contains affiliate links.

Steel-built prefab homes are a new way to tackle the housing crisis, and ORCA has just released their Sandpiper model, a 418 sq. ft. tiny house that’s built using a pop-up factory — sometimes on-site! There’s no trailer, which allows for the 13-foot width that leaves the home feeling extra spacious.

ORCA also takes advantage of the brilliant Murphy bed, which allows the living room to easily double as the bedroom. That leaves lots of square footage for a full kitchen and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower and washer/dryer. The home pictured below costs $166K (USD).

The kitchen, with lots of cabinets, takes up one end of the home.

On the other end, there’s a large bathroom with a walk-in shower.

Those big windows and doors allow for an intersection of indoors and outdoors.

    $166K? And then you have to pay for land?

    You know, we’re going to start seeing a serious jump in homelessness at this rate. People are going to start living in tents.

      Would have loved to have seen the Murphy bed in action and the drawers and doors even opened up a little. Maybe just me 🤷‍♀️

      It is in Canada, not everything costs the same there and housing is generally more expensive but people’s incomes are also not all the same either. So don’t think of this as being universal, costs are simply different by location and some are just more than others but it goes both higher and lower, depending on the location.

      It’s one of the reasons that despite many options to ship across the country that people still more often than not get options relatively close to them and different options fit different income ranges as well.

    It’s nice looking but not suitable for full-time living. Where do you put your clothes? There is kitchen and bathroom storage but absolutely no place to store anything else.

    Just an opinion about price. These are priced for upmarket urban areas where $160,000 for 418 feet must seem reasonable. There are many potential buyers for this size and style of home who live in non-urban areas where this price point would buy a nice, full-size home. These buyers are looking for small/tiny homes but are shut out of the market by these prices.
