Tiny House on Wheels with a Full-Size Shower: The Orchid THOW by New Frontier Tiny Homes


No matter what, moving into a tiny house on wheels requires some sacrifices. But if a luxurious shower experience is something on your “must-have” list, then the 300 square foot Orchid from New Frontier Tiny Homes should be on your short-list. Designer David Latimer (@davidlatimer_ on Instagram) managed to include a full-size shower in this 32-foot model.

This THOW sleeps four: Two in the king-sized loft and two in a pull-out sofa bed on the main level. The LED valance lighting is warm and dimmable and the skylights, french doors, and garage-door window let plenty of natural light in during the day. Please enjoy the photo tour below, and be sure to check out more from New Frontier Tiny Homes.

From the kitchen you look out on the living room that’s basking in natural light.

This compact kitchen allows for a stovetop, fridge and sink. You can upgrade to a fully off-grid model with a solar array if you want.

At night the valence LED lighting really *shines*, transforming this into a cozy space.

Simply pull out your bed at night! Much simpler than those transforming couches of old.

    Nice design for temporary living. Permanent use requires more storage and bigger kitchen.
    The hanging locker is nice to view but insufficient for more than one.
    Price tag is for sure high and out of reach for many.

      Opinions will vary on what can work for full time use… Actual minimalists, for example, will have the opposite opinion and consider this way too much or would use it for a large family…

      Besides, there’s more storage than the above photos show and not everyone needs a large kitchen… Also, not all storage need to be only in the interior and not all cooking need to be done inside only…

      That said, it is a designer home… The owner of New Frontier Tiny Homes has even discontinued building his own homes, contracting them now out to Liberty Tiny Homes. So he can focus on just the design work… For clients who don’t want just an ordinary home… So was never intended for the many…

    Love the roll out bed/sofa idea, will use that in the future. Eliminates a loft bed and the few steps to go up to the lounge area above the bed should not be a problem even for the elderly. Great use of space.

      I’m going to guess around $80k but they don’t say on the website. You can contact them though for a quote!
