    Beautiful looking from the out and inside. Finish quality looks very high end. And the settee has a great bay window effect probably great views. Beautiful gas fireplace. Great location. But…

    Saw this on Tiny House Hunters Monday night; very little storage in this home no closet for hanging clothes all pull out drawers, tiny kitchen sink (hand sink) size. 2 drawer refrigerator no freezer. It looks to me like it would be good for a weekend rental but as an option for daily living it needs some work.

    And it’s not very affordable – $110,000 for just the house on a land lease and the land was $60,000 – $80,000.

  • B B March 17, 2016, 11:27 am

    Just saw this on Tiny House Hunters. It was beautiful. The price was not. It was listed for $110,000. OUCH!

  • Trip_Dont_Fall March 17, 2016, 11:27 am

    I really like this one!!

  • Jim March 17, 2016, 11:58 am

    Incredible, but my guess terribly expensive and built by a master craftsman.

    • Sandi B March 17, 2016, 11:48 pm

      Yes, I am sure it was built by master craftsmen, but if one took their time, going step by step it would be both doable and more affordable.
      Basically as was said by Joseph Kuchta: if you can dream it, you can build it.

  • Joseph Kuchta March 17, 2016, 12:01 pm

    Beautiful home !! A cabin in the woods with a small lake or river … Mi Casa … If you can dream … You can build it 🏡🏞

  • Sondra March 17, 2016, 12:03 pm

    I saw this on tv this week, they want $110k for that place and that does NOT include the land, while it’s beautiful it’s not worth $110k !

    • kristina nadreau March 17, 2016, 3:08 pm

      Perhaps “not worth it” for you, but for many others it is a jewel of comfort and beauty, plus excellent engineering and design. I would pay $110k for this.

      • Dug March 17, 2016, 10:01 pm

        You know I have to wonder where others get the idea they can answer for us all?
        We all have minds and brains of our own I am sure, thus why should I be assumed we can’t decide for ourselves what within our budget, our requirements and our envisioned end product dictates what is expensive to one is NOT always going to be the case for all of us thus I am wholly with you on this I would pay £110k now for it but sadly the shipping costs all the way to Highland Scotland almost overlooking our very own Ben Nevis would likely double if not treble its value by the time I was sited no doubt admittedly then making it one expensive home I only wish I could allow that sort of value to be spent on effectively my last home??
        I may contact the builder however as craftsmanship like that is hard to find and costly when you do that said well worth it in the long run? Just look at the finish that says it all in truth.
        I’m in love, I now have its image nestled in beside the river as my screensaver ….

        • Sandi B March 17, 2016, 11:56 pm

          Dug, I bet you could create this where you are. When you take a good look at all the elements, it is pretty straight forward a build, what makes it so beautiful is the materials used. I think someone with little or no actual building experience would be able to replicate this and maybe even perfect on it. I think the stonework is surface cuts of material that are glued in place in some manner. The flooring and walls are high end products but obtainable. You just need to find a set of plans and go from there. I am sure there are great craftsmen in Scotland that could help you out and give you guidance on your project. Dream it, See it, Do it.

      • Sondra March 18, 2016, 4:15 pm

        For $110k it should have a full size frig and dishwasher and not a 2 burner counter top stove but a 3-4 burner stove and oven. 2 shelves in the corners of the kitchen does not constitute storage for me. Full size double sink with a cover to give you more counter space, not a motel bar sink. Where’s the closet and washer/dryer combo ?? No screens on the windows? hardly any storage in that baby, there’s not even a a place to hang your toilet paper. Just from what I see, a whole bunch of wood and faux stone, yeah there’s not even solar panels.

        • kristina nadreau March 18, 2016, 4:23 pm

          When you buy your Tiny House, you will be able to get all the features you believe you need. BTW I think the closets are down at the far end of the kitchen area, adjacent to the bathroom.

  • GRandall March 17, 2016, 12:06 pm

    Saw this on Tiny House Hunters on Monday night. Incredibly expensive – $110,000 + land lease. The land was $60K or $80K. It is beautiful craftsmanship with some great touches. Love the gas fireplace and the U-shaped seating with the large windows.

    But as stated above there is no storage. One tall cabinet with all pull out shelves no place to hang garments. Might be alright for a weekend rental but as a place to live needs some work.

  • Erika March 17, 2016, 12:15 pm

    Beautiful home, but so many weird choices with this one. In some ways it seems to be marketed to weekend warriors and in other ways to the tiny home world. The shower seems like a water logged nightmare waiting to happen and the kitchen sink is nearly useless (too small). The “U” shaped living room seems like it belongs in an RV with a big table so you can feed a small army of campers (an “L” might have have made more sense for a tiny home). The ships ladder is a brilliant use of space as well as being visually appealing. The fire place is beautiful (but not sure how practicle). The table in the kitchen could fold down to make the space more flexible but it doesn’t look like it does (missed opportunity). My absolute favorite part of this THOW is the faux rock siding. Brilliant!

    • kristina nadreau March 17, 2016, 3:32 pm

      I am astonished at the creativity and craftsmanship in this home. The ships ladder stairs are in fact safer than most (yes, we need a pipe railing). Yes, the sink needs to be a few inches larger in all directions. The gate leg table that seats 4 is a work of ART! The living area seating looks great to me, although I think I might choose to modify this just a little, perhaps a tuck under bed on rollers, with the seating on a platform above, so I can sleep downstairs, near the bathroom. I would forgo the stone on the interior wall as I would prefer a painting there. I think I would continue the roof line that is over the bed loft through out the entire build, because I like the space of the higher ceiling. I would use the the bed loft for storage and a cat bed! The fireplace is gorgeous. I was unable to find what sort it may be. gas? electric? I would forgo the beautiful sink in the bath so I could have a larger shower, with a higher curb & glass door to avoid water everywhere.. I would have a flush toilet with a septic, so perhaps I could have one of those tiny little bath sinks that sits atop the toilet tank. Of course I would have a cistern to provide the water for the flushing of said toilet. Since this house seems to be permanently placed, the weight of the stone does not seem to be an issue. A storage shed for tools etc and this would be a lovely way to live serenely. Plus, just for me, I would have a single dishwasher drawer because while I love to cook and eat, I despise doing dishes.

      • Bigfoot March 17, 2016, 8:13 pm

        It’s not real stone & is actually a very light siding of synthetic materials. I’m not sure what brand this is, but I’ve been looking at this type of siding for a long time regarding usage on THOW builds. Most of the products also add some insulation R value. There is a large selection to choose from regarding this type of siding. Here’s a few links from sites I’ve saved.
        http://www.fauxstonesheets.com/
        https://genstone.com/
        https://www.builddirect.com/Faux-Stone-Siding-Panels.aspx
        http://www.anticoelements.com/

        • Erika March 18, 2016, 12:09 pm

          AWESOME! Thanks for the links. I really love this siding. I have seen it used for fence panels in lieu of vinyl. I would not have thought to use it on a THOW but like I said before, Brilliant!

        • Bigfoot March 18, 2016, 7:14 pm

          Erika, Glad you found the links useful. I really like this siding also & believe it will be used in THOW more in the future. I don’t think it would be a great product for a unit that will be mobile often like a TT & IMO is more applicable to a set & forget structure like the one featured here. Depending on how you install these, you can help mitigate some of the thermal bridging effects of conventional construction. I was even looking at some of the simulated wood siding for interior use. Low maintenance & extra insulation ++.

          Regarding the “thought police” here who claim to speak for all of us, your response is spot on IMO. If someone builds something (anything) they need to hear real opinions to help them evaluate their offerings. Thanks for posting yours! Be careful though, in the future, if you post anything besides rosy accolades you may not find the prize in the Cracker Jack box :-)

          Enjoy the day!

        • Gabrielle Charest April 3, 2016, 2:22 pm

          Thanks, Bigfoot, for confirming what I thought about the siding. I, too, have looked at the sites you indicated and find that there is a range of prices on these panels. Of course I seem to zone right in on the most expensive ones!
          My dream was always to live in a small stone cottage – preferably in France. Well, unless I win the lottery, it ain’t gonna happen. What I am going to have is a shed studio and the faux stone siding will make it seem like I have achieved my dream. Sighhhh!

      • Bigfoot March 17, 2016, 11:31 pm

        It’s not stone. It’s faux stone, made from lightweight synthetic material.

      • AGA March 20, 2016, 5:25 am

        Kristina-DITTO! Your comments are exactly what I would want to do on this build! Love it and there’s no way I’d use loft for sleeping, the roof lines change exactly! Enjoy this site, I just found it today and know I will be back, it’s great!

    • kristina nadreau March 17, 2016, 3:34 pm

      Ericka, plz look closely at the table. It is a gate leg that unfolds to seat 4. It is a marvel.

      • Erika March 18, 2016, 12:10 pm

        I see that now. You are right, it is a marvel! I am now green with envy. I want to try building this in my own tiny space. Thanks for pointing it out :)

    • Sandi B March 17, 2016, 11:59 pm

      I have to say, all the negativity you express is uncalled for. If you can not say positive things perhaps you should keep your opinions to yourself. Not every THOW or Tiny Home is to everyone’s taste, just comment on the positive and leave the negative out. We all would appreciate it.

      • Sandi B March 18, 2016, 12:01 am

        Ooops, my comment was to Erika somehow it dropped down.

        • Eric March 18, 2016, 10:29 pm

          Hey Sandi… if no one ever criticizes something, nothing ever gets any better. Mean spirited criticism is uncalled for and unnecessary, but if people point out issues/problems/insert your personal adjective here, then that is what makes people see from a different perspective and look at, and sometimes create, alternatives to the original.

          Let’s face it, would you like to be flying to see family in the Wright brothers first aeroplane?

      • Erika March 18, 2016, 12:17 pm

        Sandi B, I am entitled to my opinion. I was only pointing out items I thought were odd, especially with a price tag of $110k. THOW’s are absolutely to my taste. I just think there were some strange decisions in the design of this particular unit. I also pointed out some items I thought were amazing. My post was mixed, identifying the things I liked and the things I didn’t and a bit about why. This is an open forum for people to brainstorm. And if I were the builder, I would want to hear that feedback because it would help me do a better job of targeting my market.

        • kristina nadreau March 18, 2016, 4:29 pm

          I agree. Alternate choices and questions can be expressed respectfully. the information can be useful to builders and prospective buyers. I loved this house and believe it is worth the price and if I were going to purchase it I would ask for some modifications. Any new build, regardless of size, is an opportunity for they buyer to get what they most want.

  • Byron Fears March 17, 2016, 12:17 pm

    Wow… Thanks for posting the SimBLISSity Stone Cottage on your blog.
    This is by far the coolest Tiny we have had the pleasure to build to date.
    Our client had great taste and wanted everything to be the very best “Top Shelf” all the way. The entire interior was finished like fine cabinetry… SimBLISSity Tiny Homes was so honored to be chosen to build this classy Tiny! The faux stone siding presented a lot of challenge but I figured it out and the build went great! After placing The Stone Cottage at it’s location we skirted it with the stone so now it looks like a real stone cottage on a foundation. This is home is in a remote mountain setting and is 100% Off-Grid. I hope I am given the opportunity to build another Tiny of this high of quality… sadly, often money is a limiting factor as to how far we can go with great ideas! Thanks again for posting The SimBLISSity Stone Cottage!

    • Bigfoot March 18, 2016, 7:35 am

      Byron, congratulations on a beautiful build & I’m glad we got to check it out ! I’m sure it was great fun to have a nice budget to work with. Being a DIY person, on the surface the price seems high to me. However, top of the line products, materials, & workmanship cost more than most realize. Is a Ferrari worth the $ ? Not to me but obviously they are to thousands of others.

      I looked at the Aspen model on your website & the 28′ Betty & Kris model. Too bad there aren’t any interior pics of the 28′ unit. It looks substantial & it obvious your team takes a lot of pride in your product. I hope your TH build future is bright & sunny. I’m glad somebody finally used the faux stone panels on a build exterior. I’ve always thought they would look nice used on the bottom 25% – 30% & having vertically seamed metal siding on the rest.
      Enjoy the day !

    • kristina nadreau March 18, 2016, 4:38 pm

      Byron Fears, I do no have enough superlatives to describe this house. Thank you and the owner for sharing this with us. If possible please tell us about the fireplace. gas? electric?

  • tegmapat March 17, 2016, 1:00 pm

    This one is fantastic…. all the comforts of home! Love it!

  • two crows March 17, 2016, 1:31 pm

    Yes, I saw this on Tiny House Hunters last week. A lovely home but I do have a concern about those stairs. Climbing them should be OK, but coming down might be tricky. I guess backing down would work – but then why not use a movable ladder? For a permanent staircase, I think I would prefer something along the like of Zack Griffinh’s invention. Safer and takes up less space.

  • signalfire March 17, 2016, 2:15 pm

    All that attention to detail and no handrail on the stairs (and with that odd ‘space saving’ tread design that is dangerous IMHO) and no shower curtain?? And how much weight does all that rock add and at what point is it too heavy to really tow?

    • Elaine March 17, 2016, 5:03 pm

      I’m sure that either the shower curtain was removed so that we could actually SEE the shower better in the photo, OR they took the photo before it was actually moved into and lived in. It doesn’t look lived in yet.

    • Sandi B March 18, 2016, 12:11 am

      Those are actually very safe stairs — do some research.

      • Sandi B March 18, 2016, 12:29 am

        Also they probably have a custom glass shower wall/door on order.
        Good Grief please STOP, STOP, STOP, with the negative comments – we all have things we would do differently that only matter to us. With all the negativity people will quit allowing their builds to be shown on here and who could blame them. People are proud of the creations and do not need them torn apart. You know the old saying, if you can not say something nice, do not say anything at all. Please, comment on the positive and leave the negative out.

        • signalfire March 18, 2016, 1:24 am

          No stairs are safe in the middle of the night, with no handrail, and when there’s no tread where a sleepy person might be expecting one… I don’t care about a shower curtain although it looks odd not having a rail installed ready to go. I do care about safety and I’ve seen way too many of these cockamamie designs to save space but that people will break their necks on. If you’ve never fallen down a flight of stairs, you haven’t yet experienced gravity…

      • Eric March 18, 2016, 10:36 pm

        @signalfire

        Those stairs are actually used on ships **because ** of their safety. Cockamamie it ain’t. If you want handrails, well by all means have some. Different strokes for different folks. Ya know, makes the world go around.

    • jake April 3, 2016, 5:20 pm

      My first impression was the same. Happy to learn it’s faux rick. Has an R-value. Looks great.

  • Maria West March 17, 2016, 2:32 pm

    Love it EXCEPT stairs to loft, don’t look strong enough to hold an adult.

  • Linda March 17, 2016, 2:41 pm

    I love it. I could see myself living in it.
    When I get older and can’t keep up my
    farm. Or move it to the farm and Rent
    out my home cheap for someone to be
    caretaker.

  • Julie Juarez March 17, 2016, 2:59 pm

    My heart almost burst out of my chest when I saw it :-) I absolutely love it with a few exceptions. That shower is a potential nightmare. I too do not like the RV style seating area, and the price tag in my opinion, for a small house, is just way too much. The house is a work of art, but there is no way I would spend that kind of money on a tiny home of that size.

  • kristina nadreau March 17, 2016, 3:41 pm

    I wish there were an audio to explain some of the technical details of the operating systems. This is a fine home. I would make the tiniest modifications to suit my personal needs and tastes. There can be no fault with the craftsmanship or design. I think it likely that the unseen aspects of construction are as superb as the visible. HIghest ratings! Worth every penny of the $110 asked. WOW! The last few months I have seen extraordinary work in Tiny Houses. really impressive.
    thank you to the builder and to Alex and Natalie for sharing this with us.

  • jennifer seyler jacobs March 17, 2016, 4:12 pm

    Lots of wonderful design ideas in this for a non-movable structure. All the pros & cons were right on.
    I think perhaps they intended to put a curved sliding door on that shower & added it later. A curtain would not keep the water in. The fireplace is a Travis Industries “Bed&Breakfast”model propane or gas.
    I use one & love it. Rated for 500sq. ft. I think.

    • kristina nadreau March 18, 2016, 4:40 pm

      thank you for the info on the FP.

    • Bigfoot March 18, 2016, 6:42 pm

      It’s completely movable & on a trailer. Appreciated the fireplace info :)

  • Elizabeth Rubio March 17, 2016, 4:23 pm

    Had to chuckle upon seeing the Buddha. Nice touch.

    • Eric April 4, 2016, 3:05 am

      That’d have to be the most anorexic Buddha I’ve ever seen. LOL

  • Kathy March 17, 2016, 4:37 pm

    My heart started to beat faster and faster as I looked through the photos. That didn’t last. Admittedly it IS beautiful, and the workmanship is exquisite. But disappointment grew as I searched in vain for some of the items one needs to LIVE. There’s no clothing storage to be seen, and even assuming one has storage in the sofa, who wants to have to pick up the cushions and seat to look for a clean pair of jeans? No closet for must-be-hung clothing, vacuum cleaner, or even a broom. This style stairway is a danger for even daytime use, let alone middle of the night trips. And I couldn’t find a refrigerator, not even a tiny, under-counter one. The kitchen sink is beautiful but worthless to actually DO dishes, let alone a cassarole or a spaghetti pot. A 2 burner drop-in stovetop with no oven – this kitchen might work for guests but not for full time living. The closeness of the shower to the vanity is just providing water a way to destroy the floor and vanity…..why not a glass wall and door? And I have to say that at this price range a washer/dryer might be nice. I even looked at their website to see if there were additional photos to show any of these amenities I found missing. At $110k, maybe $600 a square foot, including the loft, I just sorta have to chuckle. Each to his/her own, but if you cook, need the potty in the middle of the night, sweep your floors, or have clothes and any possessions, this is not your house.

    • Bigfoot March 17, 2016, 8:32 pm

      I’m with ya Kathy. While the craftsmanship seems outstanding & the finished product is very beautiful, this unit lacks so many requirements for something you would live in week after week. Besides all the things you mentioned, that sleeping loft looks ridiculously tight. I suppose there’s someone out there who won’t be able to find a better way to spend $110 K :}

      • theo March 17, 2016, 11:11 pm

        Yep, the woodwork is very nice. The steps, an accident waiting to happen – even if they add a handrail, that it so desperately needs, I would not want to use them. The rock on the outside looks good, but I would not trust it to stay on for long if you move this much. And I have never yet seen a fireplace that was very good for heat.

      • kristina nadreau March 17, 2016, 11:13 pm

        Kathy, I believe the closets for hanging are at the end of the kitchen cabinets just outside the bath door. Also, the refrig is 2 drawers under the counter (in the picture they appear black). In my small house I use a counter-top convection oven and it works very well for all except the over 10 pound turkeys. In my home I also use 2 single burner induction cooktops. I like them better than all my previous ranges, except for a giant 6 burner, griddle and double oven restaurant range that I used when My children were all at home. About those stairs, I think that with a good railing they would be safer than most other options, as this design is widely used in boats. I have seen one tiny house circular stairs that may be safer. I loved this house so I would have a bigger sink and my bed on the first floor. For me, just for me, this house would be worth every penny.

        • Sandi B March 18, 2016, 12:08 am

          I agree with what you say Kristina, there really is no need to voice the negativity. Perhaps the folks that bought this or will buy it are going to use it on vacation property. Not every THOW or Tiny Home needs to meet everyone’s needs, it only needs to meet the needs of the folks who own it. The negative comments can be kept to one’s self. Every unit shown from the most humble to the most extravagant has usable ideas and elements. This is not to be a critique fest. We can all figure out the negative aspects for ourselves.

  • Laura Matthes March 17, 2016, 5:02 pm

    I have looked at hundreds of tiny houses. This is one of my favorites!

  • Michael L March 17, 2016, 9:10 pm

    Oh man… someone has built my dream! This is outstanding. Someone above said it wasn’t worth the money… I certainly don’t agree.

    No matter what tiny house you decide to do, going on the assumption that going tiny is the plan, it takes a LOT of adaptation and thinking differently. That means change. No, you can’t keep everything you had in the 1500 sq ft house. Yes, you might have to think about a loft bedroom. Yes, you might have to compromise and not have that 4 burner gas oven/range. It’s called tiny living for a reason! Trust me, I just downsized from 1500 sq ft with a basement to 320 sq ft!!

  • Marsha Cowan March 17, 2016, 11:51 pm

    Wow! Exquisite craftsmanship in every corner. Love the bath (will have a curtain or glass curved door, so won’t be a problem with water), the fireplace, and the spacious living room seating. The stained wood is gorgeous, and the loft is very pretty. Remarkable home!

  • Dianne Longson March 17, 2016, 11:58 pm

    This is really beautiful; I love it inside and out. I could see my younger self living in it as is, most happily. However, my older self doesn’t do lofts. I’ve already thought about how I could change it just a very little to suit me (my older self) better.

  • Kathy March 18, 2016, 6:53 am

    Beautiful. I like that this one has wind out windows so you wouldn’t have to worry about rain.

  • Greg Hughes March 18, 2016, 12:00 pm

    I’m not ordinarily a fan of gable roofed tiny houses but this one is very well done. There are a few things I would have done differently such as addressing more storage, larger kitchen sink, etc. but overall the attention to detail makes this one of the nicest I’ve seen. I also appreciate that some effort was made to make the exterior look nice and it was well sited. Many tinies work well on the inside but are butt ugly on the outside.

      Oi! I happen to think butts are rather nice, so don’t disparage them eh? Enough of the negativity/sarcasm

      @Sandi B… it appears that it is YOU that has a problem with the negativity. Most of us read it, see the writers viewpoint and move on. Maybe you should just look at the pictures and move on if peoples viewpoints upset you that much.

    Great! Only 2 things I would do differently… replace the sink with a double sink, and remove the bathroom vanity and make the shower extend all the way across. The kitchen sink and the shower are way too small.

    My niece sent me the link to this tiny house. It is indeed beautiful and well done. Seems expensive, but then it is well built-definitely a custom job and that costs more. I do like the wood inside and the exterior. While I would not want to downsize, I can see the beauty and practicality. I don’t think stairs would be safe for be in my late 60s, but were I younger…….tiny houses are not for everyone, but I still enjoy looking and seeing what people come up with.

    I just saw this tiny house last week on HGTV. I was surprised the couple didn’t choose this home. It’s really adorable! It fits right in with the landscaping. I just love the nice touch of the faux brickwork and I love how it continues inside the home. Awesome fireplace! I love the lightening especially since you can dim it if you choose to. It would be nice if it had a dishwasher, washer & dryer combination in there. Love the woodwork & granite counter tops. I would definitely change the stairs. But all & all this is a great tiny house. Whoever purchases this home is going to love living here!!

      Carol, you are surprised the couple didn’t choose it? Well, just remember, all you have seen is what you saw on tv. The couple not only saw it in real life but saw in real life how it would, or wouldn’t, work for them. Therein lies the answer.

    This is really well done, but I think I would have pulled back on the finishes a bit – for the same reason you don’t put marble countertops in a trailer home. You’ve overbuilt the structure for the market, which is reflected in the price. Try not to be hypnotized at the home show…. Simple detailing when done well can be just as impressive at about 25% of the cost. (Then again, there are some folks that insist on a gold throne for the bathroom…)

    There’s one thing this THOW does better than any other I’ve seen to date – besides inspiring comments – and that’s how well it integrates into the site. LOOK how well it meshes with the context. Really good. I hope it was planned that way and not just a fortunate accident. All tiny homes should fit their respective sites this well.

    Need to know how to buy this tiny home before NEXT SEPTEMBER! Land and where to put it is hard, in New Jersey. Anyone know eastern shore areas that except zoning of Tiny homes! NJ, shore areas, Deleware, Philly….

    Beautiful and fun to see what can be done when one has extra money to spend on luxurious details. Which I suspect would mean they have a full time house as well, so might not need all the practical features. Sorry, Sandi, but I disagree that people need to keep their “negativity” to themselves. I see it as people expressing their perspective, not negativity. And as has been noted, some may even find that informative. I hope builders are not so thin skinned that they need to be protected from negative feedback, but open to ways to enhance their product.

    I love this.. The colors are just what I was looking for! Any other appliances and touches I would like for myself I can add.. I definitely won’t be posting pics when finished and get shreaded like these people were!! So sad..

    • Mary Goodman April 8, 2016, 2:05 pm

      If I was in my 20s or 30s I could see myself living in this house. Now with 68 rushing toward me totally unchecked, like in 9 days 😱, I don’t think it would work for me. HOWEVER, it is a beautiful home with super details. I do like it very much and am sorry Judy got shredded. Everyone has different likes and dislikes and I feel we shouldn’t rain on someone’s parade. If it brings us happiness then it was worth the out put! Just saying………

    What a lovely, well-designed, beautifully situated home! It looks like the owners really thought about exactly what is needed for them, and paid top dollar to have a dream home that wastes far fewer resources than a McMansion. The windows, alone, make this house a delight. I wouldn’t have picked the stone siding, but for no other reason than it isn’t made from natural materials, but something synthetic, but it does make a statement not often seen in tiny houses. I wish them many happy years there. Congratulations!
