    I agree perfectly, adheres to my feelings as a dress that enhances the my forms…

    40K and no plumbing, bath, or kitchen? That’s highway robbery.

      I absolutely agree! – Steve. No kitchen – no bathroom. This is not a house – it is a shed.
      And it says the bed comes “out of the floor”. Can we see the end where it does that, please?

        Maybe I should’ve called it something other than a ‘tiny house’ as it is marketed as a way to do an addition to your house (without doing an addition)

          You are SO right!!!! This makes a wonderful “added bedroom”! Not exactly a “guestroom” because most of those at least have access to a bathroom. I would love this totally as a “she-shed”. Yarn, books, yup.

        For those asking about the bed….in the late part of the video the man enters then steps down one step to get to the sofa. That bed is slid out from under the floor the wood stove is over. At first I thought the sofa made a single bed but soon saw the difference.

  • December 14, 2017, 7:32 pm

    I like the stove, sofa, and hidden bed idea. Unfortunately with the bed up there is no room to add other amenities that would make this a home or equal to a motel room. For less than $40K I could build something with the main features and perhaps more room and feel happier. Basically this unit is too high priced for the square footage but acceptable for ‘high cost of living’ areas or people with no qualms on expense.

      Actually, I was thinking about how some ammenities could be attached to the wall above the bed height like shelving, coffee station, 8″ deep closet with hangers facing the front, etc., things that the bed could slide under and still give you space to move around comfortably in bed without hitting your head or feet. I think it could be made more homey. The bed is only 6’6″ long, so accomodating the wall space, that leaves about a foot of space along the side with which to work. That space could be divided into 6″ on each side, or a foot on one side. You might could even get small furniture down one side.

    The bed is so well hidden, I missed it altogether. I don’t like these pictures. They are not pictures of the space; they are pictures of things in the space. I got no sense of this place at all. Sorry…

      I think it would be a lot better if the bed came down out of the ceiling. Just my HO.

    Where’s the hidden bed? I’m so confused!

    • Alex
      December 15, 2017, 12:32 pm

      It’s built into the floor. The video at the bottom of the page shows it. Maybe I will take some screenshots from the video to put them up so it’s easier to glance at!

        …and here it is 12 months later and no screenshot pics. Oh Alex… I’m gutted… lol, Nah, not really. Just had a look at video and yeah it slides out, which means you have to keep that area clear to be able to use the bed. Not the best system in my humble opinion. Others might not see a problem with that system but wouldn’t work with messy cluttered me.

    I didn’t see any photos of the hidden bed.

    Where the heck did that bed come from? The door opens right at the end wall, and the floor is open from there to the sofa, so there is nowhere from which a 3 1/2′ wide bed can be pulled out. Is it on some kind of garage door type frame that bends and slides up into the wall behind the wood stove? And maybe the wall space under the wood stove is actually the front of the bed frame and is attached to the side of the bed to pull it out? I’m just guessing here, but I see nowhere else from which that bed can come except from inside the front wall. If so, very clever! That is really a floor space saver in that it takes no floor space at all to accomodate it when not in use. Very clever indeed!

    It appeared in the video he stepped down to get to living room area. When he pulled out bed it looked like the wooden edge doubled as a step down into the living area. The scale is so off on the pictures it is hard to tell how deep the space really is in proportion to the rest of the house.

    • Jeannie Carle
      December 16, 2017, 3:45 am

      Yes, but the wooden edge of what? I didn’t see ANYthing past the living room! Is that where he hid the kitchen, bathroom? I think not – there’s no room in that cube for ANY of that. I could build a wooden cube for a WHOLE lot less that 40k!!! I guess maybe everything but the living-room and bed are elsewhere? Next door maybe?

        It’s just as Penny described… It’s what’s called a trundle bed…

        The entryway is two steps above the main living area and you just pull out the steps to pull out the bed, which is simply stored under the entryway…

        While it’s only meant as a addition and not a stand alone… Basically, it would appear they’re basically selling a set…

        The Sturgis (it’s 21′ THOW posted a few days ago with the gull-wing door), The Adirondack (this one), and The Newport (not yet posted at this time but is a even smaller studio unit)…

        So you can opt for any one of them or all three for the complete set, which also has options like modular decking that can go around them.

        While the trailers on the first two are transformable, meaning you can take the axles off, as well as the hitch/tow tongue and just mount them on a foundation like you would with a Manufactured House…

        Other than that, I completely agree with you on the pricing @_@…

          December 17, 2017, 2:32 am

          Soooo allll these comments could have been avoided had there been a pic of the entryway! Sorry – I saw no step – I only saw the living room. OK – the stove and wood, also – but …….. Stillllll – much too many $$

      • James D.
        December 17, 2017, 12:54 pm

        Agreed, pricing seems to significantly exceed what they’re actually offering…

        Though, it seems from their website that they’re justifying it by offering…

        1) High build quality, they’re suggesting these will last so long that you can pass them down to later generations…

        2) Everything is custom, like the previous Sturgis is only built to 95% as they assume everyone will customize it differently and they left that as part of the pricing options… Meaning added cost of being able to change just about anything in the layout is cooked in…

        3) Flexibility, given even the trailer can be altered so their customers can opt to put them on foundations or keep them on wheels and change their minds later if they wish.

        The problem for them, though, is that most of that can be done by other builders for at least a 1/4 less than what they’re asking for… with a few who can even get it down to 1/2 before we even get to the DIY’ers…

    What kind of backing do you have behind the wood burning stove?

    Can’t get video to work, so will try again later. 12 1\2′ square, you can easily fit 36″/40″ wide bed plus tiny but functional kitchen plus toilet (composting) and basin plus work desk (doubles as extra kitchen work space and for eating as well) plus a couple of chairs and plastic storage boxes both as room dividers and storage for clothing/bedding/work related stuff. Raise bed off the floor by 30″ for storage underneath as well. This cube offers so much potential and wastes it all. The only thing I would add to my own space would be the fire, but a small oil filled radiator works for me. Live in Ireland so get temperature between freezing and about 30degC/mid80degF (sorry, conversion may be off but certainly into the 30-34degC indoors when sun is shining).
