The Culp: This Tiny House on Wheels Has a Walk-In Jacuzzi Tub!


The Culp by Movable Roots is one large tiny house complete with a ground-floor bedroom and a walk-in jacuzzi tub (added by the clients’ request).

With lofts, this custom build comes in at a whopping 500 sq ft, and features two “office” lofts with built-in desks for working from home (they’ll double as guest rooms). The kitchen comes with a cooktop, stove, 10 cubic foot refrigerator and a washer & dryer.

But wait — there’s more! Something I’ve never seen on a THOW before: A screened in porch that’s part of the build itself. Pretty neat! Enjoy the pictures below and contact Movable Roots for more information and pricing.

Movable Roots Builds Incredible Custom-Built Culp Tiny House on Wheels with Built-in Porch, Loft Office, Jacuzzi Bathtub, And More…

The gold and aqua accents in this tiny home are just adorable.

Plenty of room in this tiny for a real couch — that reclines!

Here’s the view from one loft of the main living area. You’ll see the bath and master are at the back of the THOW.

This client opted for an incinerating toilet, which means no need for blackwater plumbing.

And here’s that amazing jacuzzi tub! Love the aqua subway tile.

It’s a walk-in tub making it accessible for this client.

The bedroom is right off the bathroom, and features tons of custom storage.

No climbing ladders for bedtime in this tiny house.

Here’s a view of the washer and dryer and storage stairs in the kitchen.

Oodles of counter space in this kitchen, which is something I’m looking for.

Both loft staircases feature plenty of built in storage areas.

Loft #1 with a custom desk.

Loft #2 with another custom desk and plenty of room for a guest bed.

Here’s the lovely screened-in porch area.

Wow! What a tiny house. I’d love to have coffee here every morning.

This tiny features a metal exterior for easy maintenance.

The green and copper colors continue outside.

Tell me, what do you think? Could you live here?

    Love this house I am a physically disabled person the tub looks fabulous. It is a beautifully laid out home and appears to have a lot of storage.

      That tub is the best! And yes I like the storage for sure.

    That couch needs to go. Sorry, but it does not fit the house. It clashes. The layout is good, but I would have put the wall panels verticle instead – to break all the horizontal lines. It is not a good idea to make everything horizontal due to the way our brain works.

    I agree about the leather of the couch, but I have a reclining loveseat in a material that would go perfectly in there! Also, I would put the horizontal wood behind the TV vertically; it would carry your eyes up to the staircases and encompass the windows. Maybe the white in the bathroom vertically, too. To each his own, I imagine, but that is probably what I would do. Minor changes. But I am absolutely IN LOVE with the screened-in porch. YES, coffee, please! <3

    That’s some serious size and customization. Any idea at all what the overall cost was for this unit?

      Afraid not — they didn’t disclose on the site. I’m going to guess about $100k though.

    The only thing I would change is to add a double sink OR a dishwasher.
    Love it otherwise!

    I would change absolutely nothing. Because if I lived there then I would be them and it would be exactly what I wanted 😊.
    It’s a lovely home. Kinda hard to call it tiny😂

    All the horizontal lines make me nervous. But I love the aqua tile. This is too big for my taste. I see they have an incinolet toilet. Has anyone here used one?

  • Avatar Cyn Adams

    This one peaks interest for sure & for certain. Would like to hear more about that toilet set up. Since toilet paper is scarce now, what Alt-type pot paper will it accept? A downstairs bedroom is preferred & while I shouldn’t EVER have stairs, I love the two stairways into lofts & this place is a “storage haven.” The porch is a bonus. For an ole’ gal, a walk in tub? Sign me up! So much room in the lofts. This is one big “mamma jamma” tiny house. Were I to own it, that’d be it’s name. I could see me getting lost in it… easy. 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Incinerating toilets actually uses more consumables as it still requires you to use toilet paper in addition to disposable liners, can improvise with wax paper, with each use. Though, anything that can burn and not give off toxic fumes can be used as alternative to regular toilet paper but you may need to clean out the ashes more often or adjust the burn time cycle… Mind, it’s basically a furnace being used to cremate the waste and has an exhaust vent with air filter you wouldn’t want to stop working…

      While a bidet is what would allow you to reduce the use of toilet paper, as it washes you…

    I believe this is the first 8′ wide “tiny home” that I think I could actually live with. I love the layout and the walk in tub, the teal tile (except for the fireplace surround), and the porch. The desks in the loft would not work for these old knees, but I like the storage or guest sleeping options. Bet that thing weighs a bunch and carries the price tag to go with it!

    How long is the trailer?

        42 feet… 40 foot trailer with 2 feet extension in the rear…

    Just wondering how ‘movable’ this movable roots home is, realistically. Is this something the average person could pull and if so, what would pull it? Or does the size mean you would have to put down ‘roots‘ instead? In some ways, that defeats the purpose, it would seem… I agree w/most of the comments. Nice color scheme but a bit too ‘matchy’ with all the teal tile. But the tub, layout, and porch are pretty awesome. Also, are the stairs all butcher block? Nice. I, too, am curious about the price… why be reticent to share pricing? Unless you’re overcharging, seems the work and the quality of the finishing choices would justify the cost, imo.

      Ya it’s not really something you’d move frequently. Most people who choose tiny houses as opposed to school bus conversions or RVs aren’t using it to travel full-time. It’s typically a way to get around zoning rules. In terms of price, I’m not sure. They disclose the price on most of their other models. Maybe this build was particularly fancy so the price wouldn’t reflect it with standard finishes? That said I’m going to guess around $100k since that’s where many of their other builds fall.

    @Vee – They’re a custom builder and a high end one at that, the type you not only go to for a custom build but to have the home engineered for you as well… They fabricate just about everything including the trailer the home is built on all in house and they built it to extremely high standards that is basically a tank of a home. So extremely durable, strong, and long lasting…

    But that level of quality comes with a price and so their builds typically exceed $100K but as each is custom the prices will vary depending on your particular customizations…

    At 500 Sq Ft this is larger than a Park Model, which maxes out at 400 Sq Ft, and so this is more like a small home than a tiny home, and it’s very heavy. Even Park Models aren’t really meant to be moved, which is why they’re called Park Models, and so this is also really meant to be placed in one location but most tiny houses actually aren’t moved very often as the main reason they’re on wheels is to get around the restrictions that often prevent a tiny or even small home being an option, and getting around the high costs associated with traditional foundation based structures that need building permits and a long list of fees, inspections and other costs…

    So very few are actually nomadic or moved more than a few times… Doesn’t mean you can’t rent a semi-truck or moving company and tow it cross country but it’s more of a backup option and you actually have to go pretty small and keep the Tiny House below 10,000 lbs to really be practical to tow it regularly…

    It’s RV’s that are really designed to travel all the time, as they are much more light weight and will tend to be much more aerodynamic than a tiny house. The trade off is just that RV’s aren’t built for more than recreational usage and aren’t as durable, as well insulated, or as long lasting as a tiny house would be… But, if you want to be a nomadic and don’t want to spend a lot on the tow vehicle then a RV is the more ideal choice…

    I shudder to think about the mess if the seal (which you can’t see in the pictures) of the walk in Jacuzzi was to fail.
