    Do they live in their bunks? Eat? Sit?

    What are the ceiling heights on this? Under the loft and overall ceiling? Absolutely love that they have a loft and bunk beds in a gooseneck.

    Is it really necessary to put a loft on a 42′ THOW?

      This is a home for a family of 5 so they need the extra space.

        I understand and a loft is great for kids.

    Obviously not lived in yet…want to see it again after a few months there…don’t know the age of the kids but that top bunk looks dangerous…a bit of roughhousing and tge kid could sail right over the edge. Otherwise, it looks great.

      Yeah, if I was looking at this house I’d want rails over the bunk, if not an actual wall. I’d also want the queen loft to be a bit more closed off for privacy if it was a family home. But otherwise it’s a great-looking house and a very creative way to put so much in such a small space.

    I have yet to see a safe tiny house. That tub is so high it must be very difficult to get in and out of, yet there is no grab bar. While this is one of the few that has a grab bar at the top of the kid’s loft, it should go all the way down. Plus, as others have stated, the loft with the bunk beds is dangerous. There should be industry standards of safety implemented in these types of homes.

      I have an easy solution for that dilemma Michele… Build your own TH to the specs you want. Novel idea, huh? Take the ideas that serve you and discard the rest. And there are plenty of “safe TH’s, I just don’t think you’ve looked very hard.

      I’m guessing this family of five is quite happy with how their TH is serving them, and perhaps have even seen reason to remedy some of the (small, at best) issues you’ve so hair-splittingly pointed out for them. Catering to one’s needs is part of the appeal of going tiny.

      The last thing we need is some over-valued regulatory body cracking the whip and raping the wallet of every TH dweller/DIYer living their dream. Stringent regulatory stipulations = nobody could afford to build their own TH anymore than they could afford a luxury condo on the upper-east-side of NYC… So please No, not that.

        Good Words Mr. Bernie!!! And You Are Definitely Correct In That There Are Plenty Of Safe TH’s Out There!! I Have Seen Hundreds Of Couples\Families Look At Nearly Thousands Of Tiny Homes , And Make Notes As To What They Loved And Disliked Along Their Journey. Then One Day They Decided It Was TIME TO BUILD THEIR OWN! ? And After A Great Deal Of Hard Work, Some Sweat, Blood, And Even Some Tears…They Reached The Completion Of Their Very Own TH!! ?

        I share your libertarian values. If one wants anything…fine! Buy it or build it yourself! But don’t impose your world view or do-gooder values on others. If this family is happy….be happy for them.

        Awesome home!

      I think we should do away with all safety standards, safety stickers, warning labels, etc. Get out of the way of the evolutionary process. We’ll have a much better/smarter/capable society in a few decades ;>)

    Very nice. I’d personally like to see more gooseneck tiny home styles. I don’t care for ladders and lofts and having the bed area in the gooseneck section would be a great compromise. Plus they’re bigger. I just can’t see my self in a teeny tiny house.

  • Eric
    July 23, 2016, 7:34 pm

    I would really like to know more about the ceiling heights as well. I plan on doing a gooseneck myself but thought lofts would not be an option. I really enjoy this build.

    Hi, what vehicle do you use to tow this thing??

  • Steve
    August 17, 2016, 6:12 pm

    Just wondering how one built on a gooseneck trailer like this would hold up to traveling in as one would do in an RV. Staying someplace for 2-3 weeks and then moving to another campsite for another 2-3 weeks and so on through out a several year span.

    I had thought of building a toy hauler on a 40 ft flat gooseneck hotshot trailer rated at 30K with a 12ft garage, load rated of around 18K, 3-10K axles with air ride and disc brakes but also needed to know if it could be or would be titled as an RV so as not to have to have a CDL license to pull it…already have a capable truck.

      I have been told by a highway patrolman that you do not need a CDL license to pull your own unit, at least in AZ. The only time you need a CDL is if you are hauling it for someone else for profit.

    I would be interested in seeing a TH with two bedrooms, queen beds, but no lofts. Both of us have a problem with climbing and snoring. We are just beginning to consider a TH but don’t know if it will work for us.

    I understand about height restrictions due to towing but if you build it on a slab would the height then be different.I would really like to have a lower bedroom and a loft that has at least 7 ft ceilings and normal stairs for safety.Im afraid the costs would go way up

  • Susanne

    Janell- 5 kids and wife? Wouldn’t go too small… You should consider between 500-800 sq ft approx…. 🙂

    Nope! Sorry!

    November 21, 2016, 11:56 pm

    Big , big , big….! Definitely big enough to sleep a lot of folks and still have room to do a lot more… Oh..! By the way I love the bathtub and have one in my home.. I bought and installed it in my house for under $385.00 USD in march this year…! It cost me so much because I went for the high end bath faucet… But I can’t find a better way to relax…!

    Hi guys. I love tiny houses, but there’s something I never see addressed. What about storage, like clothes? There’s almost never a closet or anything large enough to store outfits for multiple reasons or occasions such as work vs casual. I would assume that a storage unit or shed of some kind of necessary to support using most tiny homes as a full time residence. Any thoughts or insights on that?

    Thank you.

    • Natalie

      Hi Alex,
      Some tiny homes feature more storage than others, but ultimately tiny home living comes down to paring down what you own. For some people they need more clothes, but fewer dishes, and for some people it’s the opposite. There are creative ways to store things in tiny homes, but generally you just need less to store.

    That roof pitch looks like 1:12. What kind of roofing material are you using to permit that low slope roof?

    How much was this one priced at with all the extras shown?

    How much is this one listed for? Curious price point ?

    Curious about where they all sleep. 2 lifts, one with bunk beds (sleep 2) and the other for a queen size bed (sleep 2, presumably parents) which leaves 1 unaccounted for. Do they sleep in the gooseneck, and surely it would be better to have that room partitioned off from the rest? I well remember the joys of trying to get kids to sleep when they thought they were missing out on something the adults were doing, or when it was summer and still light outside, or there were visitors and it was last their bedtime, all of which work best if the kids have a room which can be closed off from other distractions. Great design otherwise, and you can easily get did rails for bunk beds that fit between the mattress and the base, designed for just these kind of beds.
