    One of my all-time favorite design idea basics. With this shell, a variety of floor plans and styles can be created. I am wondering if the dormer windows can be functional as transom windows as I am sure they can be. Other than the tub not a lot of interior pictures but I am sure their site has more and as they are offered as shells, anything is probably possible. A great senior home possibility as well as a back yard or ally-way home.

    Just from experience…CLAW FOOT TUBS may look great, but not if you are the one who has to clean under them in real life…it SUCKS.

      P.S. if you don’t show pictures of the inside, could you at least show a FLOORPLAN?

    From what I could see it looks nice and I even went to their website but it only had the same pictures as here. I don’t really want to give a review without seeing more of it.

    At some point, we lost the definition of a tiny house. This is more like an ultra fancy single-wide mobile home. Very little tiny house charm, no expression of simple living, nothing hand-crafted or personal. What is DOES feature is a profit-maximized dwelling that likely won’t be a good place to put your money. Shell from $29K, full-featured at $57K. Assuming we’re talking about the 7.5′ by 16′ footprint, for the smallest plans, that’s $241/sq. st. and $475/sq. ft. respectively.

    So then, let’s call this type of home Trailer Park Mansions. Guessing that’s where they’re going as there’s very few eye level windows to embrace the outdoors…

      I’d have to disagree, because there’s was never a set definition of a tiny house. Fact is people have been living tiny for most of human history and it has always evolved to what was needed at the time. Yurts, cabins, wagons, House Trucks, etc. Even modern tiny houses can be traced back nearly a century and long before the modern housing crisis that has actually been decades in the making. It’s just something the new generation are just rediscovering but it was never a new invention…

      Besides, people always do whatever works for them and that just won’t be the same for everyone.

      While something to understand is cost per sq ft is misleading for tiny houses because there are no large empty spaces to lower the average and the most costly parts of the house, the kitchen and bathroom, can’t be scaled down as much as the rest of the home can be because functionality has to remain. So smaller structures will automatically start with higher cost averages than larger structures, even if the larger structure has a much higher total cost.

      Another thing to understand is cost per sq ft does not factor build quality, craftsmanship, features, etc. as houses are not all equal and you can be paying for very different things from one to the next. Like a home built to handle extreme climate and weather conditions and/or allow living off-grid can cost significantly more than a home built to be on-grid in areas with more ideal year round climates and weather conditions, among many other ways costs can differ… Most tiny houses are custom built and not built in bulk like tract homes, etc. So each and every one can be very different and have very different costs.

      Most of what you’re associating with tiny houses comes from when people build it themselves but commercial builders can’t do it the same way because they have a lot of costs and need to meet higher standards.

      Builders need insurance coverage just to work or face a lot of liability concerns, they need to be able to pay their workers a fair salary and cover them with health insurance, they need to meet requirements of running a commercial business that can require them to be certified and get inspected, time=money for a business and so they can’t take unlimited time to get something done and any delay increases their costs, etc.

      It’s completely different for a DIY, who can take their time, not pay anyone, can opt to use reclaimed materials even if it takes a lot of labor, only have to meet their own standards, don’t have to worry about liability unless they try to sell the home or get into an accident, etc. But there’s still costs in terms of sweat equity, sacrificing time and energy, and dealing with limitations of what can be DIY’ed…

      Besides, every design has its trade offs and not everyone wants the same type of home. Like some people prefer privacy and thus don’t want a lot of windows at eye level but may still want lots of natural light that windows placed higher can allow and is one of the reasons people sometimes choose skylights as they can provide over 30% more natural light than standard windows. A lot will depend where the home will be placed and the owner’s priorities are… For example, a place where homes may be relatively close to other homes can be a situation where you only want a view that is away from your neighbors, or what you want to view may only be in a particular direction… Among other examples that different designs can be preferable… Like windows can effect how much storage can be built in, where you can and can’t place things, etc.

      But that all means there’s no one size fits all design that works for everyone equally and in all situations and there are always trade offs no matter what design is chosen.

      What people want out of home can also vary. Some just need shelter and can have a home that is very basic but others can have more advance needs that require a more complex build to meet them and/or other needs like having a home they can enjoy living in and looks the way they want their home to look.

      Just like art people can enjoy, the architecture of the home will often reflect the tastes and preferences of the owner to meet their emotional needs, which for some can be just as important as their physical needs to ensure a proper balance for their health as mental health can play a big role in people’s lives.

      So this may not appeal to you but that’s why lots of choices are good because everyone can just choose what works best for them. Understand, what you consider a good design can be what someone else considers a nightmare and vice versa for what they prefer vs what you prefer.

      This is just one of many options from a custom builder who can do completely different designs if that’s what the client wants…

    Well, that was disappointing. No floorplan? No inside look?

      There’s not always going to be a floor plan when it’s offered as a shell because that will be up to whoever finishes it out…

    The accordion window is interesting, could be good in the right location, but can one add a screen?

    • Avatar James D.
      June 7, 2020, 10:23 pm

      Yes, a screen or net could be added on the interior with that type of window… But depends what you want to do with it as it’s ideal if you add a deck and want to be able to serve people through the window, for example.

      Might be preferable to build a screened in deck/patio instead…
