Hello all. I have a question and observation.Why does all of the latest tiny houses have to be so plain and ugly? Why are they all just boxes on wheels. I know why trailers are just square, but most all tiny houses will sit in the same location. Doesn’t anyone have any imagination anymore. Come on folks, lets separate ourselves from metal trailers and create beautiful, functional and works of art. And this one for $70,000. Are you kidding me. I build barns with more creativity.
Are you kidding? Why? Because it maximises usable space is why! You want beautiful? Then build yourself beautiful. But don’t expect people who are actually doing it to follow your (perceived) perceptions of beauty.
OK, Eric. You don’t sound like a builder, but if you are keep building these square, sterile, institutional boxes. There must be a market for them, as I see them on most of the Tiny House sites. But I have been building for over 40 years, and this will keep me working, because there will always be some out there who want both quality and beauty. Oh, and the cabinets. I wouldn’t put any of them in a cheap hotel. they are boring and poor quality. Of course my honesty might just get me kicked off of this site.
Larry, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So it depends what you mean by beauty and to who you’re referring it to because not everyone is going to agree on exactly what that means.
This is why there are many different architectural designs and with custom built homes what they end up looking like very much depends on the individual owner and their personal preferences.
Eric does have a point, though, some architecture designs like a gabled roof results in less interior space for the lofts, along with less vertical wall space that could be used for something else.
Things like a mini-split usually have to be placed at the highest point that still provides a clear air flow throughout the house but a gabled roof means you will usually have to mount it at a lower position and not in an optimal direction for air flow.
I don’t disagree that the design can still be made appealing but there are practical considerations that should be factored if people are going to live in them full time and deal with more limited space…
Builders like Incredible Tiny Homes, for example, offer architectural details like what they call a reversed gabled roof, which allows them to keep a more square design but still have the appearance of a gabled roof line, which allows them to offer more space in their lofts.
While also keep in mind there are other considerations. Like some want their homes designed so they can live a nomadic lifestyle.
This “Silver Bullet” house is actually designed to be more easily towed. The slanted roof line lowers the profile of the house in the direction it will be towed and thus reduces air drag resistance while it’s being towed…
So some designs also factor mobility and that makes it more complicated than simple use of space and how it looks, but everything has trade offs and pros and cons to consider…
No pantry for food storage? I also want a place for a larger tv and a computer desk built in. This one is lacking what I want to see in a TH. I guess I need a small home? Now living comfortably in over 2300 ft home. But I do keep looking for the perfect tiny home and also the perfect spot to live in it full time in ca. My age is 80, hello guys.
Hello Ron, sounds like you just need to talk to a custom builder… Most tiny houses are custom built for their owners and so reflect what the owner wants but there’s a wide range of ways they can be designed.
Finding a place to live in it in California is more of a challenge but there are counties that allow them as ADU’s and other options like RV parks and Tiny House villages are becoming available.
But there are small homes in California as an alternative option…
Custom homes can be expensive, builders like Titan Tiny Homes cater mostly to the mid-price-range, but there are budget minded builders like Incredible Tiny Homes, they’re based in Tennessee but they’ll deliver the home to any of the 48 continental states, also Canada, and they’ll work with you to find a design and budget range that works for you…
I would like to add to the comment about the lack of creativity with an observation about ergonomics inside the house. Flat storage couches with no back cushions just make my back hurt looking at them. And to maximize storage, most of them are so high off the floor that a normal female cannot rest her feet on the floor while sitting on the couch. Sometimes even the seating for dining has this tall shape, for no reason at all. If your back hurts all the time you live in a tiny home, you won’t enjoy it. I would like to see less emphasis on storage and more emphasis on living space. We don’t just eat and sleep. Most of us do things in between and need room to do them.
“We don’t just eat and sleep. Most of us do things in between and need room to do them.”
Which is why sleeping zones need a lot more headroom… some of them you’d be hard pressed to sit up in the bed without banging yer noggin’ on the roof.
Why is it those that are the most attractive to look at from the outside, or are just unique on the outside, are also those with more liveable insides. I have seen a replica Tudor cottage, Hollywood version but still nice, with a lively liveable inside including proper chairs, there is a great Scottish one that looks like a colourful croft with couch, chairs plus table and dining chairs, another from France which is very European outside and equally practical as well as comfortable inside and the millennium one from New Zealand which has retractable stairs and an upstairs office area. They are out there but seem to be in the minority because they all seem to look the same in shape and with a similar impractical inside. I agree, square is useful but there is square (unadorned, plain, shed-like) and square (decorated, different, pretty) and surely a THoW is meant to be a home, because a backless bench says government department/school/hospital/waiting room while a chair or sofa/couch says comfort and homelike. Add in how many work from home, me included, and I wince every time I look at one with no proper chairs or table/desk for a laptop or PC – some of us still use them – or even for writing on with regard to the endless paperwork. Surely practicality works in more ways than just utilitarian, and they all seem to be verging on utilitarian instead of homelike. (Not even going into loft headroom cause I would rather pay a bit extra for even slightly more headroom).
I will just say that the shelf in the bathroom, over the (regular) toilet is very cool. My mama said I shouldn’t say anything if I couldn’t say something nice. OK, I changed my mind. This is just plain too freaking white. Your mileage, of course, may vary.
this would be waaaay better at half the size. soo much unusable space.
I really want to like it, but I just can’t see the point in going tiny then having a huge bench that really serves no purpose, as well as a bar/counter that you can’t eat at.
ive lived tiny for the past seven years and plan on going micro in the next ten.
