Classic Design Gone Purple! The Purple Heritage

The white shiplap walls make this home feel so bright and airy.

The steps come with two safety railings! And I see a washer/dryer combo tucked underneath them.

I love the large window over the sink, but check out those cloud cabinet pulls!

Cute back splash behind the farmhouse sink as well.

The range hood sits over the counter, meaning the client can add an induction-style cooktop or something similar for  cooking.

The bay window bump out makes the space feel so much larger, and acts as a great place for knickknacks!

Up in the loft bedroom, which again feels spacious due to the white walls and windows.

And oh this bathroom! The tile in the shower is absolutely stunning. What do you think?

    LOVE, LOVE LOVE the bathroom sink and faucet! There seems to be a possibility of the sofa being a pull-out for overnighters! And although that shade of purple is NOT my favorite, I can see a darker shade. So cute!

      Yes a pull-out is a great idea!

      I also prefer darker purple but it’s still a nice shade of purple. Maybe add darker purple on trim. Have to look at photo again. Assuming there’s trim around windows.

      These days ways to cook don’t need to be visible.. Many options from cookware that can be stored away until needed to cookware that can be embedded or hidden in the counter top or hidden in furniture, islands, etc. Along with alternative methods of cooking like pressure cookers, instant pots, de-hydrators, etc.

      Note, there is a designated cooking area with the vent range hood to the left of the sink…

        Yes exactly. There’s likely an induction cooktop that can be placed on the counter when needed.

        I think in this case the owner likely has an induction cooktop that can be pulled out when needed.

      I’m the owner of this tiny house and I have both a countertop convection oven and induction burner for the kitchen.

    Well I didn’t see the toilet. For 70,000.00 I would except a stove. Starting price is 70,000.00! Going Tiny was to not be in debt. This has gotten out of hand.

        @Maryam El-Sherif – Actually a lot have all of those. Storage is just very diverse and can be provided in many different ways. Options like wardrobes, etc. don’t have to be built in, or they can be hidden parts of the home, like built into the stairs, under the bed, etc. or in different forms that you may just may not be used to thinking of as storage options.

        Like the kitchens, storage can also range in size from very minimum to walk in closets, depending on how much of the home the owner prioritizes for that use.

        While some people just prefer to not permanently set everything until they’ve lived in it awhile and figured what layout actually works best for them or they either prefer to DIY the storage or hired a someone else to finalize the interior at a later date. So a lot of homes can be just works in progress when first shown… Or it may actually be a short term use home, for use as an AirBNB, for example, and thus can be very basic as it will mostly just have people staying just a day or two or maybe just one night, and thus not comparable to the full time use homes…

        You can check out Erin Adams: Living the Dream in a a Tiny House! on youtube, for an example of someone who put a sizeable priority on storage…

        @Maria and Sherry – Not greed, everything just has a cost to provide and it depends what you want…

        Quality, craftsmanship, have a home that will last a lifetime, have a home that will be durable and not need constant maintenance, have a home that will keep you comfortable in even extreme climates and weather conditions, having a home that can easily be insured, etc. all have a cost to provide and there are always trade offs…

        Anything custom built will especially have a higher cost and must never be confused with the cost of a more cheaply made mass produced product.

        Examples like an RV can be far cheaper, especially as most are mass produced and typically depreciate rapidly, but it’s not remotely built like a house, will need regular maintenance, and will be more difficult to live in if you need to keep it in one place and deal with extreme climates and weather.

        Even something as nice as a Airstream typically only requires around 200 work hours to build, most RV’s will require quite a bit less… Compared to the typical tiny house that requires over 800 to over 1000 work hours and will use significantly more material than a lightly built RV… So serves as a reality check of what you’re actually paying for as something like an Airstream can cost more than a Tiny House. While the cheaper RV’s will typically be made of cheaper materials like rubber roofs, have much more minimal framing, little to no insulation, etc. but may have higher end appliances…

        While to give an idea between mass produced and custom… A mass produced product like furniture from Ikea, will cost less to purchase than just the materials will cost for a custom furniture maker to make the same type of furniture before adding the cost of their labor, but the custom furniture will be made of real wood, etc. have a level of craftsmanship the mass produced product won’t, and can last for generations if properly cared for while the mass produced product is mostly disposable and won’t be expect to last nearly as long…

        Yes, a custom built home can be very expensive but you’re paying for a lot more than just a mere and basic home when you go custom and it’s simply not the cheap way to get it done but people may choose to go that route because it gives them far more control over what they get out of it and can cater to needs unique to them that a generic product may not, or sometimes could not, address…

        Understand, this is from a custom builder… It was built specifically for someone to meet their specific needs and part of that cost includes the option of having one custom built for your needs, which means it covers a range of options. Some choices will increase the cost but some may lower it but everything about it can be completely changed from one client to the next…

        There are cheaper builders, some a lot cheaper, but they will start to be less custom to only providing choices from existing models and/ore reduces the cost in other ways like making it a more simple and basic structure…

        Plus people can always opt to DIY and not pay someone to do it for them, but that comes with different trade offs and reasons why not everyone can opt to go that route…

        Again, everything has trade offs, and the costs will be closely tied to the choices made for what you want to end up with and how you choose to get it done… People just have to understand what impact their choices will have on costs and understand that different choices will result in different costs…

        It’s just not always easy to understand what the costs are for, like there can be a big difference in cost by just the choice of windows from a few hundred up to thousands each, going from basic single pane on up to multiple features custom double to triple pane windows. Among other ways your choices can significantly effect the costs but those are the types of things that have to be understood to judge whether something is priced right or not for what it is actually providing…

      Maria, I purchased a 33ft Copper Canyon (Keystone) Travel Trailer for $8,500… It has more storage with full appliances, more storage, and 2 slide-outs! In perfect condition… People ask me if I want to go camping with my little 20ft travel trailer – I am permanently camping anyhow! Hahaha… But seriously, this tiny home is the cleanest, brightest, and most personable tiny home I have seen in awhile… Love the stairs and storage under them… I understand minimizing personal items, but WHY does anyone never have a closet or shelving or drawers to store things? This is why I went to a very nice travel trailer…

        As a FL State CGC, I regularly deal with customer objections. The most decisive is “price objection”. There are several scenarios I share with potential clients, while addressing the top three decisions anyone makes when purchasing anything concerning 1) Price, 2) Service, and 3) Quality of product and workmanship.
        I think the most common scenario is making a decision to buy an automobile. And this is a major expense most Americans have made many times and so are quite familiar with – they should know the industry by now. What is a practical decision for one person may not apply to another person making the same mid size care purchase. For example:
        1) Person A may decide to by a Chevy Malibu
        2) Person B may decide to by a Toyota Camry
        3) Person B may decide to by a Lexus 350.
        All three will give each driver similar driving performance, fuel range, and somewhat equivalent comfort, but especially ownership: 3 to 10 years.
        Person A doesn’t mind a seat that may feel less comfortable than the Camry and indeed is saving $1,000s on the initial purchase. The down side is the depreciation is greater on this vehicle than the Camry.
        Person B doesn’t mind paying a little more for the reputation and resale value of his Camry.
        And Person C likes the Camry but prefers the Lexus because it has a “status” associated with it and the dealer service is off the charts. Person C can get a simple oil change and be given a new loaner to tool around in for a couple of hours or all day while his vehicle is having its oil and filter changed.
        Different strokes for different folks!
        Some people may like to get a new car for 1960’s pricing of around $1,500. But let’s be realistic! Very few people Americans would find a Yugo or a low end Citroen as practical transportation! Our options in life are unlimited and the decisions we make today will definitely be different in years to come – we all adjust our thinking depending on our age, employment, health, and wisdom.
