    Saving this one! I love the design! Especially the little bathroom contraption that lifts up into the loft. So cool!

    I’ve got about $15,000 for a tiny home. Would you have anything in my price range?

      Yeah…build it yourself and it would be under 15,000

    I’m looking for a tiny house that someone’s lived in and needs to sale. Would you have anything like that or know of anyone that does?

    Very well put together and attractive as well. Regular size appliances and bathroom, but Again . I didn’t see any closets or closet spaces at all with this well thought out home.. all good ..Except where are the CLOSETS !!!

      It makes use of built ins, like in the bathroom to the left of the toilet is a 48″ x 18″ storage space and hidden behind the bathroom door on the left is also a combo washer/dryer…

      You can find more info on the builder’s site Utopian Villas… Model is under the same name of “The Funk”…

      Oh, if you look at the bathroom pic… Besides that drop down tray over the sink you can just make out the hinge of another part of the bathroom ceiling that also folds down… So some of the storage is just hidden…

        All types of storage is nice, but it still doesn’t look like a real closet for hanging clothes.

          Like I pointed out, there’s a 48″ x 18″ storage space that’s not shown in the pictures… That’s length by depth, so it’s big enough to store quite a bit of hanging cloths…

          But in general you don’t really need a hanging closet to store all your cloths…

          Like that ceiling storage under the loft… If that panel by the door folds down then cloths can be stored in it laying flat that would be hanging when the panel is lowered… There’s compact forms of closets you can opt for that fold or otherwise store away when not being used that can still keep cloths from getting wrinkled…

          But if you really need more space then just swap out that cabinet with upper shelving cubbies opposite the couch with a good size wardrobe closet furniture… Given the height there you can even have it tiered with the pull out and down hanging bars type hardware that’s available now, so you can have more than one level of hanging cloths and you just pull out the one you want to access and it’ll basically turn the living space into a walk in closet…

          The couch can also be replaced with one that has storage as well for even more storage…

          Though, there’s also additional storage bins all around the bed in the loft that look mostly separate from the ones accessible from below in the bathroom… Like one at least is above where the shower would be…

          While there’s also some long term storage options that could be done on the outside too… and it looks like the owners already have storage for shoes on the outside, so the deck doubles as a mud room…

          Mind, it’s a custom house and that means everything and anything can be changed… I only listed like half of the possible storage options you could have done in this space…

      Odd…Dominick you do realize before considering a Tiny Home a lifestyle change has to be made right? What you do AFTER work is important in Tiny Home world…The kitchen is MASSIVE for tiny home…Take the end base cabinet and false front inside the kitchen stove side, make the backside a closet…Problem solved…Also I would do a conduction cook top, convection micro over and drawer base under(as usual in small spaces) and drawer bases as I am a senior(door bases are silly)…

    That ladder doesn’t look as though it’s movable, so how do you use that first step without breaking something? I see nothing on their website that might clarify this.

    Otherwise I like the house. It looks comfortable and homey. But I still worry about that ladder…

    • James D.
      August 4, 2017, 9:50 pm

      The ladder/stairs is mounted to a moveable barn door… The whole thing can slide to the left for direct access when not needing to access the bathroom…

      • Dick
        August 4, 2017, 10:18 pm

        Looks like the 20/200 failed me again…lol…I didn’t realize that was a barn door!

        • James D.
          August 5, 2017, 1:20 am

          No problem, I didn’t realize it right away either… That picture is a bit misleading as it doesn’t show the top of the door but there’s a slightly better angle shot of it on the builder’s site…

          The images shown here are from the designer’s site and he probably just wanted to show off how the ladder/stairs slides over that little storage shelving nook… providing a moveable ladder/stairs without sacrificing storage…

          While there’s also storage to the left side of the bathroom, including a combo washer/dryer that’s also not shown in the photos… Not to mention a bunch of hidden storage, only one of which is shown open in any of the photos…

          So the photos alone are not showing everything…

    Okay you have official caught exactly the tiny house of my dreams. Everything about it is my taste and desire for comfort. I am in love. will this house have plans available at any time?

    There is also a lot of storage in the floor of the loft. This TH is gorgeous and looks roomier than 254 sq ft. Love it!

    Beautiful home. But for me there are too many cabinets and I would put in apartment size stove and refrigerator so I could put a table and chairs in to eat. I don’t want to sit at a counter. The pull down in bathroom would not work for me. I’m only 5ft 3 inches tall. But over all they did a great job.

    Pretty neat. I am glad I took the time to read all the comments because I thought that the stairs folded up into the ceiling. By ::) I was wondering about the hanging silverware. Is it useable or just a decoration? Anyway I really like the house.

    • James D.
      August 5, 2017, 4:27 pm

      Yeah, those are ceiling racks… looks like it’s motorized but should lower for easier reach…

  • Ellen McCann

    Smart design. Looks very liveable. A place to eat, a place to sit and some storage it would appear. Did not notice any closets. I think that it is a good idea to show closet space. Very pretty too.

    As having done 9 years of cross country RVing I can say we learned we needed 1/3 of what we packed around with us….”Patterns For Living”…If you don’t use it in two years, you don’t “Need” it…Especially as you get older…Give all the Keepsakes to the kids and grand-kids, they will get them anyway and why clutter your retirement carrying them around? Keep in mind this world is now in a race…Better look at what you can while it’s there…You and I do not have an entry ticket to the 1% underground cities… Don’t even think I would want one…I want to walk one more time in the Redwoods and find agate’s on a beach…Now a Tiny Home makes more sense as the days pass….Even a Vardo beats a mortgage.. By a mile…

      I can’t agree more Bill. I’m down to a 320 sq ft cottage and still thinking… “I don’t need all this crap!” I’ve loved the features on here that have shown people moving into vans. Now THAT is what I call scaling back! I still have a ways to go. Then, I’ll have all of my precious items with me and hop in the van or a real tiny house (gypsy style) for those golden adventures!

    Geesh..what is the height of this thing? You’d need a tank to pull it too.

    Brian’s designs are awesome!

    Now Tiny House on Wheels has reached the maximum ” State of Grace”, that is why I see it meet those housing needs of numerous musician, artists, writers who can not, for work, get away from the metropolis and therefor would love to live perched like owls looking up from a tree undisturbed in the quiet of a city park a small Tiny House Residency on the Trees, but also Tiny House on Water, but this is another story…. never to say never, to meet the wide range needs, it is necessary and useful. I know it’s not a simple, special allowance, costs etc. etc….but the gains would be guaranteed with strong advertising on the field.

    This one was also built one tiny house nation. They should give Zac & John a shout out for their help with design and build. This is one of my favorites that I’ve seen on the show & tiny house sites.

    Love this model, the only change I’d make would be to increase the squ. footage to 300 just to have a larger living room area.
