    Refreshing new look compared to the average thow. I would eliminate 1/2 of the loft area and give the kitchen the 12 ft. ceiling height. I like this one.

      Well, the bigger you go then the more design options you have and there have been other designer THOWs but price range is usually not what most are looking for… Mind, most of these range from $140K to over $180K…

      Though, technically, a Park Model isn’t a THOW. They’re part of the RV industry and are built to meet the ANSI 119.5 Recreational Park Trailer standard. So they’re typically built to a more minimal standard than anything intended for full time dwelling and thus aren’t intended to be full time homes like THOWs typically are… Add, only a real THOW can opt to do things like meet code requirements for Appendix Q. So it can be placed on a foundation and be treated like a regular residential dwelling and get a certificate of occupancy…

      States like Washington have the code that can allow the option to put a THOW on a foundation but they specifically won’t allow that for a Park Model, for an example that the difference is real… There’s just overlap because THOWs can be built to the size of a Park Model and people can call them that when they’re that big but it’s how they’re built that matters and thus the distinction…

        Thanks for the info, I would never buy this or a thow. I can build this myself. I like the additional size. If stick built the loft could be raised to have a real room.

          Well, that’s one of the good things about real Tiny Houses… You can choose to build them yourself and don’t have to have it commercially built. Other than maybe hiring certain licensed professional like an electrician, if that’s part of the local codes and zoning you have to meet in the area you will be placing it.

          Options like Park Models or Manufactured Houses are built in factories and can’t be DIY built. Organization like RVIA will specifically not support DIY’ers and HUD will only allow companies with factories that meet their code requirements.

          So, regardless of whether it’s on wheels or on a foundation. You got options with an actual Tiny house… Though, THOWs have more leeway on creative freedom in the design as code requirements for foundation structures can be rather restrictive in that sense, especially if it’s going to be in a HOA area, but it’s what works for the most people. While THOWs are mainly restricted by road size requirements but you can still go bigger, and that includes height.

          People have done THOWs that have a second floor or just gone a little beyond the normal road legal limit, as just as going wider, you just need the oversize permit, sticker, etc. to move it and they don’t really care once it’s parked and stays at one location, as it’s mainly just road safety liability concern that has to be covered…

          Some states also allow higher road legal maximum heights, the highest being Alaska at 15′ but most of the western half the nation allows 14′ and 2 allow 14′ 6″, as long as you stay within state border… The 13′ 6″ height limit is mainly to ensure you can take it anywhere in the country using the national highway system but it’s mainly the East coast side of the country that imposes a lot of the actual size restrictions… People mainly remain within the standard road size limits for a combination of costs and to retain the option to be easily mobile without needing permits and getting approval for a move each time they move…

          While there’s also the option to stack, like you can with containers, to get the second story, as you can make them modular too and have a scalable structure and just need to hire a crane to set it up…

          So lots of options and everyone can do it the way that works best for them, within their budget and skill level, and works for how they will be using it and for where they will be placing it, barring any restrictions they may have to work around…

    I assume couch in LR sleeps 2 to bring number to 8 to sleep – actual pictures would have been good because plans have no dimension’s – wonder how steep stairway is and if it is wide enough for a railing and why no built ins upstairs be at open area at foot of beds for storage for 4 sleepers – this could be a real possibility to use one side of loft for a seated office as well

      This is a new model for them and their galleries are all from units they had already built for clients. So probably just haven’t built one yet for a client but that’ll mean photos should be posted later once they do…

      Though, while they are customizable, they’re all based on standard models that the floor plans show and Park Models are built to ANSI 119.5 Recreational Park Trailer Standards. So stairs, etc. should be pretty standard and not be steep…
