The Tiny Giant Custom THOW by Alpine Tiny Homes

At 39′ long, the name “Tiny Giant” is perfectly fitting for this custom THOW built for Sherry by Alpine Tiny Homes in Utah.

The gooseneck home features everything from full-sized appliances to a doggie door! It has a living room over the gooseneck and a huge loft bedroom on the other side of the home. I really love the beetle-kill pine walls on the inside. New owner Sherry posted a review on Alpine’s Facebook page, saying she loves her custom tiny home!

Looking down the long kitchen to the living room.

Looking the other way to the bathroom.

Love that deep sink and the window.

That living room is excellent. Washer/dryer combo.

I’m in love with the lighting fixtures too!

Wow this loft bedroom is enormous!

Plenty of space for your bed (and your head!)

Trunk in the closet in the loft. Beautiful!

That sink! I don’t know why those faucets make me so happy.

Horse trough tub and shower. Cool fixtures.

Window to the outdoors — good for ventilation!

Some excellent built-in storage every tiny home needs!

Sherry loves her new home! Good for her 🙂

From Alpine Tiny Homes:

The Tiny Giant home is a 30 ft gooseneck trailer with a 7 ft deck for the gooseneck and a 2 ft cantilever off the back end for a total of 39 ft. This has a Shou Sugi Ban exterior along with metal siding.

The interior has Cali Bamboo flooring, Beetle kill pine for the walls and ceilings. Custom Knotty Alder cabinets and two built in pantry closets, one on each side of the kitchen. The bathroom has a vintage 3 claw fixture of the tub and they use a 5 ft horse trough for the tub with a surround curtain above.

This home has fresh, black and gray water tanks so it’s can be off grid and the solar system will be installed next month with a 3kW Goal Zero back up battery. The stairs to the gooseneck hide the fresh water tank and the doggy door that goes out the front of the home. Under the gooseneck also has an exterior storage area to the other side of the the washer/dryer combo unit.

    this plan seems to be all stairs and hallway with a wasted opportunity for a beautiful entrance.

      Most of these THOWs are all stairs and hallway. At least this one thoughtfully designed the kitchen counter so that part of it protrudes 2″ into the walking space. Nothing like a bruised hip to break up the monotony. (rolling eyes here)

        The oven door handle and range knobs stick out more than that…

        Anyway, the actual serious design flaw is in the bathroom… 4 outlets clustered together behind the sink and it looks like it’s a regular outlet and not a GFCI outlet, which is required when placing any outlet near areas that can get wet…

    (pesky flying fingers)….
    i would suggest using one set of stairs parallel, against the gooseneck wall to the living room area, and extending a walkway over to the bedroom for another small stair …
    having created a walkway approx 5ft above the floor, you then have an opportunity to place some deep storage, a reading nook, a colorful area rug potted plant, the washer dryer combo…in doing this you have created an inviting open area at the entrance that is not merely crisscrossed pathways

    I am deeply disappointed, what what happend to the tiny home?
    You completely missed the whole of point of tiny home concept in my opinion.

      Tiny doesn’t have to mean microscopic… Remember, these are only called Tiny because normal houses have become so big…

      These “Tiny” homes used to be the norm if you go back a century… They’re just considered Tiny by modern standards.

      Besides, just like regular houses these alternatives should still be able to scale to what people may need of them…

      A family of 4, for example will still find this very tiny to live in… It only seems big if you’re the only one going to live in it…

    I agree with Kera. This is no more a tiny home. And look at the huuuuuge fridge! Where is the “small life” idea gone? And: If there is so much place: what about a small mud room or even corner? Not every country has such a sunny weather like Florida.

      Tiny depends what it is being compared to and since regular homes average over 2600 sq ft, this is still far below what many would consider a regular size house…

      Regardless… You want a mud room then ask for one if you ever have a house built… These are custom buildings made to the specs the customer requested…

      When it comes to custom, chances are no two are going to be exactly alike because we’re all different and all have different priorities…

      For example, some people may not consider a mud room because they could always put one on the outside and keep the internal space for living space…

      Also, it depends on how many people are going to live in it… Family of 4 is going to need more space than a individual and you can’t expect everyone to live in the same size house if not everyone gets the same amount of space if they have to share it…

      Really, there’s no such thing as one universal standard for going Tiny!

        True 🙂 Tiny is relative — and you can always ask for custom designs from most builders 🙂

    I think I would skip the lower window at the foot of the stairs and put in an L-shaped set of cabinets as a surround for the washer/dryer as a place to keep laundry detergents, softners, etc., and things like towels, wash cloths, sheets and that sort of stuff when it comes out of the dryer. I think I might also add a fold-up/down table surface there to fold laundry on, too. That whole nook in the washing machine stairwell is prime real estate for a mini laundry set-up.

    Where are those pesky rules and regulations for Tiny Houses?

    Thank goodness we are individuals and can ask for what we would like in our life and living style, if we can afford to have our own “tiny house” built the way we want it. Or if $ is the problem, build or renovate yourself.

    I love this one for the size of the bedroom. WOW!

    So…the living room is at the bottom of the stairs?

    the bottom of the stairs is a mishmash of crossing patterns, entry, washing machine…..the living room is up a couple of steps – over the gooseneck of the trailer. (pictures 5, and 6)
