    Ugh. It has those annoying steps that people think are creative for some reason. Just because it’s different, doesn’t make it great.

      Glad I’m not the only one who thought this. The shell of the house looks great! The commercial sink, goofy steps, and interior walls just don’t do it for me

      Those steps are for space saving and not to be different. Better than lader, anyway.

    • Reply Lisa E. July 4, 2016 at 3:27 pm

      I agree. I have a real dislike for those stair steps; they are an accident just waiting to happen, and I find them visually disturbing.

      The alternating tread pattern stair is the only code compliant solution for this building. Yes this is a ceramic studio with only a 10’x12′ footprint – the space under the stairs that is normally reserved for the bathroom is now where a kiln will go. All natural or recycled materials top to bottom. R50 in the roof, R35 in the walls and floor – this building exceeds the building envelope characteristics of any other “tiny house” in existence.

      The house looks great till a wind come up. I’m afrad it will be on the ground.

    I agree with the stairs, but the rest of it is very nice. Very crafty feel. I like it.

    Very cute. 2 story idea is great if not moving it. And yes any form of real stairs makes it viable for lil kids and older people. Love the outside color as well.

    Is this for sale

    Not sure about the “spotted” interior walls but I do love the tin ceiling.

  • Reply Lisa E. July 4, 2016 at 3:29 pm

    I’m sorry this wasn’t fitted out as a tiny house. I was very excited to see the interior until it came up as just a studio. If she wanted to make it a special studio, she could outfit it with a kitchenette and a bathroom. Then it would be really something.

    I’d rather have an alternate tread stair than a steep ladder. Still, I’d treat it as a ladder and go down backwards as you would a ladder.

    Wow, lots of criticism here! I actually like this place for what it is and think some of the ideas here are great! I like the stamped sheet metal exterior shingles and the bamboo interior wall covering. The stairway looks to be a great space saver and I also like the use of the fake tin ceiling. Good work!:-)

    • Reply Noah July 16, 2016 at 9:06 am

      Yes! The walls are covered with real bamboo, ceiling is 100% real tin upstairs from American Tin Ceilings, downstairs floor is marmoleum (a natural material), exterior is recycled aluminum from Reinke Shakes, all trim is resawn repurposed from old fir beams, structure is a true timber frame building with mortise and tenon joinery featuring certified Timberlinx connections. Code compliant for extreme temperatures in an earthquake-prone region.

    Love it! My granddaughter is a potter and would love a studio like this. The sink is fantastic and the alternating tread stairs are very practical. Not sure how easy it will be to keep the bamboo walls clean unless the potter is a lot tidier crafter than my granddaughter. This design would be very easy to adapt to a tiny house.

    What is covering the walls? Very interesting, but too much of it. If you got it really reasonably priced you made a good choice. If you paid too much for it, than bad choice. Hay folks, you need to remember this was used as a ceramics studio, not a home. The sink makes sense considering the context. Inexpensive to change if you don’t like it. It sure beats those little soup bowls so many folks are using. I like the stairs but have never had the opportunity to try anything like them. I have heard that they are no more difficult to use than regular stairs and take up about half of the space. I’m for that!

    Ah! It’s bamboo. No wonder. OK, you get an A+ for sustainability just so long as there are no nasty chemical in the making of the panels.

  • Reply Gayla Strait July 8, 2016 at 4:34 pm

    I like it a lot, would change the stairs and break up the color of the walls a bit.

  • Reply Alan Gordy July 27, 2016 at 12:51 am

    Noah… did great. Ignore the whining retards about the stair comments. They know nothing of code requirements and thinking outside the box. They complain of a commercial sink yet ignore the fact that this is a ceramic studio built for “commercial” use. What dingbats. Another complains of stairs being a tripping hazard. If they had the sense and awareness of where their feet are at any given moment maybe they could navigate such stairs safely, as some of us can. Again, great job. As a builder and artist i applaud your efforts.

  • Reply Sonia Lunas July 30, 2016 at 11:04 am

    Cute but would need a bathroom /if used for anything more than a studio. PLEASE tell me what’s the name of the song/artist in the TinyHouse Listing video. LOVE that music.

  • Reply Jim August 5, 2016 at 9:46 pm

    Are there plans for this design? If so where can I obtain them

  • Reply Crazy Potter September 16, 2016 at 9:17 am

    Noah, people’s comments should be taken as builds on your already good plans. TS only criticism if you take it personally.

    In that vein, I’m a potter. The stairs are a problem for me because I am often walking with ware boards of finished pots. As the are in front, I’d have a hard time seeing where to step.

    As kilns emit particles that are hazardous to your lungs and health, the best way to handle the kiln is to make it possible to wheel out for firing and ventilation but keep in for most loading. Need a big plug 220 outside or through a hole!

    I’d like my wheel up and my glazing and firing down. It would super cool to have a dumb waiter to move the heavy clay and leather ware up and down. We carry lots of heavy stuff. Anything you can do minimize that means we can work longer!

    Finally, the best build to me would be to make the floor washable. We can’t sweep because the particles in clay, glaze, etc. are not good to inhale al the time. If there were away to be able to hide down the floors and have it drain out, it would totally rock!

    Make these changes and you’ll have potters lining up miles! Good luck and keep crafting! You’re on a great track!

      Sorry for the typos! Not good at small screens, only big pots!

    The outside of the house is nice but did not see a kitchen or small bathroom or a ceiling fan and where is the fireplace.
    I like the step better then just a ladder.

  • Reply James October 4, 2016 at 2:28 am

    You should build some more homes like this style so people can live in them you would make lots of money tiny homes are in style now.
    But always make sure you have a diswasher and a window in the kitchen.
    Hope to see more soon!
