Modern, Bohemian Tiny House with Downstairs Bedroom by Summit Tiny Homes


Here’s a great example of how to fit a downstairs bedroom into a tiny house on wheels. The Modern Bohemian by Summit Tiny Homes leaves nothing out, including a large closet in the Master bedroom for clothing!

You walk into the kitchen complete with modern versions of retro appliances (full fridge, full oven and farmhouse sink!). Take a right to go through the bathroom with a tiled shower/tub combo to the main floor room. Above those is a storage loft accessible via ladder. If you go left you’ll end up in the living room which includes a storage staircase which takes you into another loft.

The whole thing has a lovely feel and great craftsmanship! Get a quote from Summit here.

Modern Bohemian THOW with Downstairs Bedroom!

You enter through the kitchen with these stunning dark cabinets.

Bench seating for two with a large window.

There’s even a laundry station near the bathroom, and another loft for storage (or sleeping).

Farmhouse sink with a window, and full oven/stovetop for cooking.

This retro fridge allows for plenty of cold food storage.

Fully-tiled shower/tub area with a high window for natural light.

This client chose a composting toilet, but you can pick a flush one.

Look at that closet! Just what every THOW needs.

Finally, here are the storage steps leading upstairs. I like that they’re enclosed to hide clutter.

Highlights:

  • Modern Bohemian Tiny House
  • Two lofts (one via stairs, one via ladder)
  • Downstairs bedroom
  • Large closet in bedroom
  • Full bathroom
  • Tiled shower/tub combo
  • Composting Separette toilet

  • Full kitchen
  • Large refrigerator

    These large (tiny homes) are very nice inside, but you may as well just call them what they are. Mobile homes.

      No, they’re not. Mobile homes are much flimsier. These are like miniature well built little houses. Strong and sturdy. I had thought the same thing at first, but later saw what all went into these. I am in a mobile home (have been for over 40 years), and there is a very distinct difference. Not to mention, they would be much cheaper if they were MHs. Though I would guess you COULD make some that are cheap and flimsy, but they wouldn’t last long in our Florida hurricanes! They can be built in different ways.

    Beautifully done! High praises to the designer and construction team. As I have a healthy respect/fear of tornadoes (which are dangerously frequent in my part of the USA), I could see this THOW constructed on a foundation and several feet wider than it is. A house like that I could happily move into and live the rest of my life. These comments are respectfully submitted.

      Wise to consider tornadoes! We don’t have any where I am but if we did I’d be building underground LOL

      Hi Shyla. It can be tough to find parking for tiny homes, for sure. Many people find their spots on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. Otherwise, there are some communities around the US where you can park.

    I just moved my Tiny House to High Falls, Ga. For years it was a RV Park, but the new owner from California is cleaning it up and has included “Tiny House” living as well. Great spots complete with hookups to water, sewage and power for a great price! And it’s walking distance to the gorgeous High Falls state park!

    I really like this one! Quality materials and plenty of countertops if you count the eating area underneath the window. I only see one major change I would consider. I don’t really need the loft so I would eliminate that along with the stairs, of course. Lots more floor space for the living area and the tall ceiling would add greatly to a feeling of a bigger space. Make up for the lost stair storage with furniture. A nice couch with storage underneath plus an antique “buffet” with big drawers to use as a TV stand. What about one of those Murphy beds that’s connected to a couch? Sleep there and use the “bedroom” for more storage plus a nice big table for hobbies! So much to consider!

    How long is this THOW? I love the floor plan. What is the approximate cost?

    Just wondering by the price costing as much a single family home, why spend 100,000 plus on these when you could buy a home. They are nice but the prices are as much as regular houses.

      Where I live in the Northeast you’d be hard-pressed to find anything livable for under $300K. I know it’s similar in other parts of the country, as well. For people in those areas, $100K is a steal. That said, it obviously doesn’t make sense for those in areas where you can purchase a nice home for $100K.

      @Reginald Moton – It’s complicated but Key thing to understand is what is and isn’t equivalent, what people choose to pay for depends a lot on what they personally value or don’t…

      This is a high end custom built THOW but your regular house isn’t built to very high standards, isn’t custom, and can’t be moved… Actual custom built houses start 50% higher in cost on up to over 4 times as much as a standard house, for apples to apples comparison…

      Regular houses also don’t try to pack all the functionality into every square inch of space, where there can be 9-11 windows, a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room, and a sleeping area in every 200 Sq Ft of space. So the economy of scale isn’t linear or equivalent…

      While costs considerations aren’t limited to just the purchase price of the home. The average homeowner, nationally, has to spend on average over $9000 annually on just ownership and maintenance costs. Add additional fees, possible HOA fees, high heating and cooling costs, pay more for furnishings, cleaning, insurance, etc… There can be a lot of additional costs that can add up over time and make people actually pay more than double what they originally paid to purchase the home over the lifetime they spend there, those with 30+ year mortgages can even exceed four times the original purchase price… Lots more possible factors, like location can play a very big factor, but that gives a general idea of why the purchase price isn’t the only thing to consider…

      Smaller homes are naturally more energy efficient, impose fewer additional costs over the life of the home, a movable home allows options that a stationary home could not support but also lack things a stationary home can offer, and building to high standards tends to increase energy efficiency and help reduce long term costs, which is generally easier to do on a smaller scale…

      Custom just isn’t cheap, it’s actually normally the most expensive way to build but it gives people the most control over what they end up with and allows people to tailor the home to their needs and preference… Versus having to adapt and settle with whatever you get with a regular home…

      Similar reasoning as to why some people will buy custom furniture instead of buying something from a store like Ikea or buy tailored cloths instead of just something off the rack at a thrift store, etc.

      Similarly, tiny houses don’t have to be custom built, etc. It’s just a choice and just like regular houses, people can choose to build them at lower costs, it just depends what they want to end up with and how they choose to get it done…

      It all boils down to the fact there are always trade offs and everything has its own pros and cons. There’s no universal solution that works everywhere and for everyone, equally. So it’s about what’s appropriate to the given situation and individual needs/preferences and priorities…

      Sometimes that will be the regular home, other times it’ll be something else…
