Alex and Rosa's Tiny House
Ms. Gypsy Soul
Pretty sure that photo #7 is from another house.
Love this one, except the fridge would drive me nuts with the door opening on the wrong hinge. Kitchen would work a lot better with the door reversed, and some models can do that…
The door on the refrig or freezer would not open if it were reversed. You have to have room for the thickness of the doors to open or they would bind against the wall. the only way it would work would be to make the opening about 31/2 wider for it to open.
Maybe they got the fridge super cheap and it does not reverse. Mwybe it was a damaged unit and it cannot be reversed. Who knows why they used this fridge.
Yeah, the door handles would drive me nuts too. If I wasn’t a case of getting a good deal on it after the fact, then it was an oversight that should have been fixed by making the width larger to accommodate it
I love this little house. Clean design. But I think you mixed in a photo (the one with the bed in the loft) from another house. I remember seeing that little turtle in the bottom right of the photo. Love this well constructed house. Thank you.
What’s the deal with the picture of the loft that clearly isn’t the same house? The one with the red pillows?
I love this house. THIS is the perfect house for me. Oh I wish…. 🙂 <3
the photo of the bed with the red pillows is quite obviously a different house
It’s true! Thanks for pointing it out.
The bed with the red pillows appears to have carried over from the previous post: Alex & Rosa’s house.
Was anyone else as creeped out as I was by the woman with the sardonic smile in the sarcophagus?
Very nice but don’t like the blue.Just a personal choice. good craftsmanship,Very good finnishing.My god you guys must have been sanding for a coons age.I just hope mine turns out as well as yours.
That’s a huge amount of storage space, and a generous kitchen with a full sized fridge/freezer for once… but where’s the cooker?
Love the drop kitchen with the smuggler’s hold, and the storage staircase! Very well done. Looks great!
if this is specifically built according to the buyers wishes, OK. Otherwise I do not think the finishes are practical. all that dark wood in a small space, especially on the ceilings and floors, causes the place to visually shrink. the refrigerator door swings wrong, and it would take 10-20 min to fix it, so what else did no one bother to do?? Tongue and groove is hard to clean, is someone willing to store and then drag a vacuum cleaner around to keep those crevices clean. Then to use painted grooved wood in a tiny bath where it will get wet, is foolish. Looks nice for the first 3 months of use and then it doesn’t look nice and becomes a problem.
I have lost patience with tiny house builders all re-inventing the wheel, with most doing it badly. Basic design principles, both functional and decoratively, for small spaces have been around for a long time and are freely available to anyone who will look. Boats and RVs have equipment that works well in mobile tiny houses, which is superior to using small devices meant for cheap tract houses. One of the most creative designs I have seen was a man going off grid, using solar power. he turned a small commercial freezer into a refrigerator because the insulation is superior and could use it for food storage powered by solar.! Mostly we do not see that kind of innovation, instead I see small refrigerators from Sears shoved into tiny kitchens. I have seen only 1 excellent water handling system. We constantly see butcher block counters which are pretty but totally impractical for a tiny house. Wooden counter tops around sinks/water will rot, mold, harbor pests and bacteria. Tiny counter tops need to be able to disinfected,—- hard surface and impervious to water, because the space is too small to aerate and dissipate properly. If you have bugs growing in your sink or bath, there is no way to escape. everything is close at hand for good or ill. Composting toilets are a wretched joke in an enclosed small space. If your circumstances do not allow for a flush toilet, then an outhouse is the healthiest way to go. Yes, it is cold to go out in the winter. I did this as a child in Minnesota.
Kristina I am an interior designer from Oz and I totally agree with all of your design comments – practical suggestions indeed! I would also add that mirrors are a great surface to bounce light around inside, and also visually increase the space, (when well-placed!). But I am not knowledgeable in the services area, so I would be interested in more details about the water handling system you mentioned. Cheers Vicky
I have to diagree with you about the butcher block. We’ve lived in our tiny house for two years and cook A LOT, and we have maple butcher block counters with a mineral oil finish. No problems at all, even around the sink. I oil them about once a month and they still look beautiful. No “rot, mold or pests” in our house.
I have to disagree with your design comments. I think this project was nicely done. Everyone has different reasons for their materials choices and not all are about going off the grid. If they had wanted an RV they would have bought and outfitted an RV.
YOU SOUND LIKE A TROLL!! I love this tiny house, you apparently don’t know everything about living tiny because the grievances you have with this design and its functions are bunk! I’ve lived tiny and with the same surfaces or products you say are something that would cause me to live in filth or stench and you are totally off. My house is free of germy surfaces or nasty odors. These products we use are of quality and the people who choose to use them are informed smart consumers who use them properly.
Where is their stove/oven?
A-ma-zing!!!…contratulation guys! Enjoy it now 🙂
Where is the stove? You can wash clothes which is good, but not cook. Hmm? Also the little attic is too short to sleep in. You would get claustrophobia.
All ide need to cook on are to unit electric stove top. I dont bake alote,but if they make a small oven to go with the stove that would be cool.
