    Very nice! With one huge drawback: Where’s the clothes closet? Are all their clothes in boxes shoved way under the bed? Looks great for a backyard getaway, but I don’t know this is truly livable long term.

    • James D. April 14, 2018, 1:09 am

      Eric, note Alex’s post…

      “17. Two Built in Closet Spaces”

      While you could always have them configure the bed as the type that raises and basically gives you a walk in closet, if you really want to maximize clothing storage… Remember, they’re a custom builder!

      • Eric April 14, 2018, 11:44 am

        … and then when you lower the bed for the first time, it flattens your closet…

        • James D. April 14, 2018, 1:24 pm

          lol, it’s just a hidden closet so no, but you wouldn’t want to be still standing in there when the bed is lowered. ;-p

          Just in case you were wondering, there are many closet options… Hidden built ins that you just have to move something to reveal, open built in closets with no doors that may be just covered with a curtain (that appears what they did here), furniture like wardrobes that can blend in with other furniture and function as closets but leave the option of moving them, moveable closets or racks that can lower or rise from a stored position, etc.

          Even something like an elevator closet that stores up by the ceiling is an option…

          Though, speaking of flat, there are fold flat closets that the hanging bar with individual hanger hooks can basically go from horizontal to vertical to take up less space when you don’t need to look through the cloths for a kind of accordion style closet.

          There’s also pull out closets that can slide in and out of storage that make for easier access to the cloths and turns the walking space into the walk in closet when they’re pulled out…

          The folding hanging bar can also be placed somewhere else separately, called a valet bar, and even have one by the front door that you can fold out when you need to hang multiple coats but leave folded down when you don’t… Along with hooks that can be folded out or left flat as another option…

          While for long term storage, cloths can take up very little space if you vacuum seal them flat… So seasonal storage doesn’t necessarily need that much extra room…

          There’s basically creative solutions for just about anything, different people also don’t all always need the same kind of solutions, and so not everything done in a Tiny House may look like what you’re used to… Mind, most regular houses are built inefficiently and waste a lot of space…

  • Angela April 13, 2018, 6:03 pm

    Not much of a kitchen. I guess you could buy another induction hot plate and one of those combo microwave/convection countertop ovens, though you might have to build shelving for it. And like Eric said, where do you put your clothes? This tiny strikes me as a nice place to be overnight, but not livable.

    • James D. April 14, 2018, 2:12 am

      Angela, it actually has two built in closets but they’re a custom builder so they could always put in whatever kind of storage you prefer and prioritize however you want which takes up how much space… Size length even varies between 16′, 20′, and 24’… The one pictured above is the 20′ version… So you can go a bit bigger to 24′ or a bit smaller to 16’…

      For livable… Van dwellers, bushcraft wilderness survivalists, people living in Eco-communities, etc. provide plenty of examples showing people can live with far less…. And there are people living in much smaller Tiny Houses than this…

      It’s just not for everyone and depends what you’re used to…

  • Michael April 13, 2018, 7:04 pm

    The exterior looks aerodynamic. However, there are are drawbacks,
    – steps in and out,
    – no living space, dining only,
    – tiny kitchen not really suitable for cooking full meals,
    – narrow bathroom,
    – no hanging locker.
    I would put an elevator bed and create a living area under.
    This would allow more kitchen space, add a hanging locker and add a few inches to the bathroom width.

    • James D. April 14, 2018, 12:56 am

      Um, you mean a loft?

      Because an elevator bed will require rails, which means the windows will need to be resized to fit because the rails can’t go over the window and nothing can be in the path of the elevator bed.

      So extending the kitchen would mean no place to lower the bed to unless you want it to rest on top of the kitchen counter or keep it so high it might as well be a loft… Unless you intend to go with a much smaller bed?

      Note the shape the roof would prevent it from going all the way up to the ceiling, which is another reason the windows would have to be resized… and will likely give you no space to put a wall locker unless it’s at floor level…

      For the door steps, it’s because the door is above the wheel well… but you can trade it’s position with that side’s closet by the bathroom and then it will no longer be over the wheel well, but the trade off with no steps is also no shoe storage, which the steps double as…

      The closet on the kitchen side is being used as a pantry but either one could be converted to a hanging closet…

      While the easiest solution for the bathroom would be to add a bump out to the trailer tongue… Would even help make the front more aerodynamic… But regardless, at least it’s not a wet-bath…

      Kitchen is small but you can still make full meals with it… Just takes more planning and preparing things ahead of time… Mind, with that bed storage you can keep things like Instant-Pots, electric ovens, etc. for more complex cooking and there’s segregated cookware that allows you to cook multiple things in the same pot or frying pan… There’s also plenty of one pot meals you can make… But not all meals need to be hot… Or just pre-cook, to make it easy to warm up a big meal…

      Anyway, creative use of space helps but you still have to deal with compromises the smaller you go, which you would mainly do as a trade off for better mobility.

      What usually happens as you go progressively smaller is spaces get merged and you start using things like the bed as both sleeping space and living space.

      Convertible spaces are a option but most people find doing that daily as too bothersome and they usually leave it in one default state most of the time, which is usually the bed…

      While those going smaller also tend to start using the outdoors as their living space, especially when the design allows them to be more mobile.

      Not for everyone, for sure, but not all Tiny Houses are designed to fit the same types of lifestyles…

      Everything from the roof shape to the placement of the doors and windows, along with size, can change what lifestyle the house is optimized for and what layouts will and won’t work with it…

  • D. Pedersen April 14, 2018, 3:33 am

    I like this house very much. Though I do not understand the main door – Why it has to sit this far up. One could have moved the door to the right and then the cubbord to the other side of the door. That way you would get sort of an entrence, that was seperated from the main room – Hence dirt would stay out at the entrance.

    • D. Pedersen April 14, 2018, 3:35 am

      And you would not have to fill up floor space with stairs on the inside.

    • Alex April 14, 2018, 12:39 pm

      The door was put there because of the trailer’s wheels and so that you could have closet space on your way to the bathroom on both sides.

      I think I like it this way. You also get space for your shoes under the steps and it makes for a good place to sit and put your shoes on. I think it’s perfect.

  • Alex April 14, 2018, 12:43 pm

    I could see this being a really enjoyable tiny house to be in. When you’re sleeping, you’re not crammed into any sort of loft which I think is nice. On top of it, no need for ladders/stairs at all. And since there’s no need for loft, it’s not a super tall structure so it’s lighter and easier to tow.

    And those windows! I could see them making it feel like you’re in a much bigger space especially if you can put it somewhere with a nice view. I’m in love with this tiny house!

    • James D. April 14, 2018, 1:54 pm

      Hey Alex, it’s more they split the difference… The back end by the bed is still at the maximum road legal height, it just slopes down from there to the front, where the bathroom is, and while that does reduce the weight a bit versus a straight end to to end roof line it’s mainly a better aerodynamic wind resistance profile for towing.

      Most of the weight come from how the interior is designed and what’s put into it. Framing alone only accounts for an average of about 20% of the final total weight.

      So avoiding putting anything in the upper half is the bigger reduction in mass as you’re not packing as much into the same size space. While keeping everything lower and closer to the floor helps keep it bottom heavy and thus more stable while towing.

      This means the bed actually has a high ceiling but that helps make it feel roomier, you can even stand in the bed, along with the big windows that can make the space feel over ten times bigger than it is… But it’s also why the bathroom may feel a bit small with that being at the low point of the ceiling/roof height and no window…

      • Alex April 16, 2018, 10:19 am

        So true – thank you James!

  • Leslie Thornton April 14, 2018, 4:42 pm

    I find having people actually in the house gives a better perspective of size. I love this tiny. It is beautiful and efficient. It has everything I need for myself and my little dog.

    • Alex April 16, 2018, 10:21 am

      Me too it’s nice having people in the photos to understand the space better.

  • Michael April 20, 2018, 7:22 pm

    Hi James, thanks for your comments always appreciated. Understandable that windows needs to resized. Doing so they may be changed into opening ones for better ventilation. This roof shape is perfect for an elevator bed which can be a simple low weight construction as shown by Anna White. Changing the ‘sleeping direction’ to across can gain some space to benefit the kitchen and the bed kann be still lowered to avoid ladder.

    Climbing over wheel wells makes no sense so relocation of the entrance is the way to go.
