    I absolutely love this tiny house!! Beautiful and functional.

  • Claude September 30, 2016, 2:10 pm

    Une autre belle realisation quebecoise, tres bien pensee avec toutes les commodites. Belle grande salle de bain, la cuisine bien equipee, beaucoup de lumiere naturelle. Grands espaces. Bravo!

  • Kathy Khoshfahm September 30, 2016, 2:24 pm

    This THOW has earned a place on my top 10 list…love the clean look.

  • jill September 30, 2016, 2:26 pm

    I LOVE this one and would live in it in a heartbeat. Lots of storage, beautiful elements, simple and functional…I want one!

    • Alex October 1, 2016, 11:13 am

      Thanks Jill glad you love it too!

      • jill October 2, 2016, 4:46 pm

        so….how do i get one? the only thing i would change about this one is putting a front-loading washer/dryer in instead of top loading. and maybe no cabinet lighting….

  • Laura September 30, 2016, 2:45 pm

    By far the best I ever seen. Howuch is this costing to be or have it build?

    • Alex October 1, 2016, 11:14 am

      The best you’ve ever seen? That’s awesome! As for cost, not sure, but you can contact the builders to find out 🙂

  • ROSEE September 30, 2016, 3:03 pm

    For a TH, this sure looks huge inside. Nice clean lines of woodwork. But what is that inside the wooden lid in the bathroom?

    • Phil September 30, 2016, 3:09 pm

      Its a big 250 GAL water tank. This tiny house has an off the grid water system, but its almost all for the bath itself

    • Jaime September 30, 2016, 4:55 pm

      My guess is that is the 200 gallon water storage tank that’s mentioned in the descriptive text…

      It also mentioned that there was a 40 gallon water heater – personally, I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t use an on-demand heater in a tiny house – for a wide range of reasons – but whatever floats the boat I guess.

      • Bob W September 30, 2016, 7:47 pm

        I’m thinking it is a washer/dryer combo. The reason is because I went to their web site where they actually have a huge vertical closet for the water tanks and other machine components like a water pump as well. Everything is self-contained so the pressure to move the water through the system originates with the pump instead of an exterior source.

        No mention of the washer/dryer was made, however the conceptual design is a good one if that is the case. You don’t loose any space that way and you also have a place to fold the laundry.

      • Eric October 1, 2016, 12:39 am

        You are indeed correct. A quick visit to their (linked) website and hovering over the pictures shows in the lower part of my browser, Chrome btw) the name of the picture in the URL.

        On demand heaters to my understanding use a LOT of electricity in the process. While ODH’s can be a benefit in a grid connected home by not having to heat up a cylinder every time cold water enters after use, coming off a Solar supplied system might be just a tad problematic.

        • Jaime October 6, 2016, 1:22 am

          Yes, electric on-demand heaters take up or can take up the entirety of a 200 Amp electrical service, never mind the meager 50 Amp services that are used in most tinies. That said, most of the on-demand heaters that I’ve had any experience with are gas fired – either natural gas, LNG or propane. I would never have much interest in and electric demand heater unless it was supplemental at point of use. I have a gas fired on-demand heater in my current home, however, and I find that IT works admirably.

    • Alex October 1, 2016, 11:15 am

      Just an FYI – you’re right – it is bigger than most tiny houses on wheels because it’s technically more of a park model home.

  • Jan September 30, 2016, 3:56 pm

    Yes! What is that inside the wooden lid in the bathroom?? It seems like everything else was described in detail.
    Love the overall design! Very well done!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 7, 2016, 5:19 am

      I believe that’s the hot water 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

      • Shirley April 6, 2017, 12:18 am

        How on earth would you be able to replace the hot water heater? Love the bath tub. The whole house is very pretty.

  • Kim W September 30, 2016, 5:00 pm

    I love this Tiny House! I would have a Clic Clack sofa bed in the living area and let younger, fitter guests sleep upstairs! I woul fit a rail to the loft room to stop guests dropping down during the night. I would just need a washing machine and I would be happy to live there full time. I would never move it, as I have never towed anything and am not about to start doing so at my age.

  • Joyce Davenport September 30, 2016, 5:31 pm

    This is one of my top picks also. Like the white and the kitchen. More rails are a good idea. So is a washer. $?

  • Carol September 30, 2016, 7:17 pm

    Is there some way to cook something other than toast and coffee?

    • oxide October 1, 2016, 1:53 pm

      Yes, there’s a small range at the end of the counter next to the bathroom wall. One picture shows dishtowel hanging from it. It looks like a smoothtop or induction top.

  • carolyn Gerner September 30, 2016, 10:54 pm

    Whats under The Lid In The Bathroom? I WOULD NEED A SPACE FOR A WASHER & DRYER Other Than That HOW MUCH?? Where Would you Suggest A W&D Space? One Of My Top Three!!!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 7, 2016, 5:23 am

      Hi Carolyn — You can ask for a quote via their website. — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Carole D. October 1, 2016, 10:25 am

    Wow, félicitations!
    Des québécois dont on peut être fier. Très belle maison. Complètement à mon goût. J’aimerais en construire une sur fondation, et y ajouter une véranda 3 saisons, car avec nos beaux long hivers….. ça deviendrait plus vivable pour une personne retraitée qui est la plupart du temps à la maison comme moi.

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN October 1, 2016, 7:48 pm

    I would have to say this is one beautiful tiny house…! And I too like the stairs, and especially the fore thought of adding a hide away step at the bottom of the stair case so as not to tumble over it when busy in the kitchen…. I also like the wood floors and ceiling, and then again breaking up the paint once more with the counter tops and shelves, as well as thee stair risers, and over the fridge area, Making it all very well balanced in it’s appearance…! Great job…!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie October 7, 2016, 5:20 am

      Thanks for reading — glad you enjoyed it! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN October 1, 2016, 7:50 pm

    OH and before anyone say’s it, I meant to say stair treads, and not risers…! LoL…! ( A little Oops…!)

  • Catherine October 2, 2016, 8:25 pm

    Stunning. Beautifully designed. Every inch a pleasure. Want 🙂
    (now to find out the price … )

  • Shad Skinner October 2, 2016, 8:57 pm

    What’s the length anybody?

  • Anna October 6, 2016, 11:04 pm

    When tiny home builders owners don’t post prices, I worry that they aren’t good at business, or as soon as their homes become popular they will raise prices and nobody knows any better.

  • Claude October 7, 2016, 10:00 am

    The rate of exchange would surely advantage our neighbours from the south when buying a big item like a tiny house in Quebec, if you are able to pick it up yourself.

  • Marilyn January 17, 2017, 12:25 pm

    Love the interior finishes. I’ve had pancreatic cancer and do have fibromyalgia which leaves me with pain and low energy. I’d need to put a pullout bed on the main floor. Is the refrigerator next to a clothes closet? Don’t need much, but it gets cold here too in Minn. ; and we have long coats and dresses to hang up, not fold. Again this is a beautiful home!

  • Kim January 17, 2017, 12:44 pm

    Do you know dimensions/weight? I went to their website and it’s not listed there either.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 19, 2017, 7:28 am

      Hi Kim — I’m afraid we typically get our information from the website, so if they don’t include it, I don’t have it. However, you can always fill out their “contact us” form and ask. Hopefully they would be quick to respond to an interested buyer!

  • Wendy January 17, 2017, 11:36 pm

    Beautiful design. Just have to mind those drawer pulls on the bottoms steps. May be safer to have recessed drawer pulls.

  • Barnie January 18, 2017, 4:24 pm

    Great house! Love to see Canadian builders showcased here. Like to get some idea of their pricing without having to fill out their contact form for a “quote”. Beautiful design concepts on their site, but only the vaguest of pricing parameters. That lack of transparency makes me think “why so secretive?”… strikes me as a bit haughty.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 19, 2017, 6:28 am

      I do like more transparency, but I think for some builders they’d rather not have a “base” quote if they know it’ll have a lot of add-ons, because that’s worse than just having a higher quote. However, as I’m sure you see from the comments on these homes every day, everyone wants something different from a tiny, meaning it’s hard to give a one size fits all price.

  • David January 19, 2017, 3:02 am

    Hello Alex,
    This is a great THOW, it appears wider than usual. I couldn’t find the width and length dimensions, I got the 340sq/ft. I will keep checking, but if some body could get me one or both measurements it could mean an order may be placed??? (and an aprox. $ value would be helpful,I’d have something to work on)

    There web page isn’t/wasn’t the easy to get full details from!
    Thanks David

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 19, 2017, 6:03 am

      Hi David, I’m afraid we get our information from the websites of most builders, so if it isn’t on the website, we don’t have it. That being said, they should have a contact page readily available and I’m sure they’d love to sell you a home 🙂 Just let them know you are very interested in purchasing and need more details. Let me know how it goes!

  • Sherry April 5, 2017, 11:34 am

    Finally a contemporary home…Sorry guys, but Im not a fan of the cabin look. Best tiny home I’ve seen yet.

  • RUSTY April 5, 2017, 3:16 pm

    Love the kitchen, wood floors and living area. This would make a very nice home.

  • Danielle DiLisio April 5, 2017, 9:42 pm

    Wow, absolutely fantastic!

  • amsterdamsel April 6, 2017, 1:43 am

    I absolutely love this THOW. Maybe even my favorite.

  • Laurie Therrien April 19, 2017, 11:33 am

    Où est la laveuse /sécheuse ? Pourquoi pas un poêle aux Granules? Ou au Propane? Ou à l’Huile? Elle est belle, elle manque de vestiaire ! Nous sommes au Québec, les vêtements demandent de l’espace. Nous sommes retraités. Intéressés. Le coût de la minimaliste est primordial . Nous voulons savoir si nous pouvons nous permettre de rêver /éveillerreur. Merci
