Eagle Microhome

The Eagle Microhome: is a 350 sq. ft., two floors with a 50 sq. ft. deck on top. The main floor is 10′ x 20′, with a 5’x5′ bathroom (shower, toilet, sink) and two cabinets and small window, living area has french doors leading out to a deck, a living room area with bench seat, and a kitchen area with a bartable, bar stools, kitchen counter with sink, cabinets above and under counter bar fridge. It has built in storage behind the front door and has a narrow staircase with storage underneath leading to the upstairs bedroom, a 10′ x 15′ area with a corner chair and table and deep cabinets for storage.

It is tiny, yet there is quite a bit of storage space provided. It would be suitable for a Laneway home, a vacation cottage, a rental suite or a backyard office or studio.

It is made in Aldergrove B.C. by John Murchie of MurchTech Consulting Corp. He made his first tiny house 30 years ago in Vancouver – using composite steel technology that he has patented. The CST is modular and uses no wood in the main structure. it’s half the weight of wood and almost half the price. This model is $48,500 for just about everything (except the moveable furniture) and is made at the warehouse and shipped via flatbed truck to location.

A two-story, 350 square feet home built by MurchTech Consulting Corp and can be contacted at 604-306-7551.

    I Love This Home. What Did It Cost To Build It.

      This model is $48,500 for the two floors – just about everything you see in the pictures is included. The strength of the house is the composite steel used in the walls, floor and roof. Currently they are only made here in B.C. and then delivered by flatbed truck to location. It probably wouldn’t be economical to ship all the way to Florida – but perhaps one day there will be manufacturing plants in the US too. Thank you for your kinds words!

    This house looks great. Just one question, where would the occupant cook?

    This home is made by MurchTech Consulting Corp. in B.C. Canada. We have tiny ones starting at 100 sq. ft. single floor up to 800 sq. ft. The composite steel used to build is half the weight of wood and strong enough to allow three floors high.
    Call John Murchie: 604-306-7751 for details.

    Could this house be delivered to Colorado? Or do they not deliver anywhere in the states?

    There are parts I like and parts I dont like. I like the storage behind the front door, the bathroom, the kitchen, even the seating area. The mismatch color of the stories, no. The joint line where the stories meet looks sloppy. Instead of a balcony on the second floor I would put a very large bay window, with window seat since there is a patio, down stairs. The upstairs is way too dark, I would put a window on each side. I would just put 20 feet on the second floor and put in a spiral staircase, the stairway as it is takes up too much room. I might even bypass the second floor entirely. But since this is modular housing where you can order it any way you like and not a custom home, my complaints are irrelevant.

      At least 100 people have come through in the last few weeks – and I would say 95% like the upstairs and particularly the deck the most. Most laneway house rules do not allow large windows on the side facing the neighbours – so you cannot put windows on all sides.

      Older people are not too thrilled by the stairs (knee issues) and they are quite narrow (they come 6″ and 12″ wider – but then the hallway is smaller). Two people asked about a spiral staircase – which can look great, but aren’t that much fun to go up either, and would not allow storage underneath.

      But as you mentioned – it’s modular, it comes it different sizes, each one is custom made and one floor is easier to construct than two. And there are those that purchase just the shell – and custom make the inside themselves.

      I think the two colors are intentional. They divide the two different textures and are accented with the grey strip that is between the layers. I think they go quite well with the faux stone trim at the bottom. I like the subtleness of it.

    This is a refreshingly different plan. Very attractive. Nice to see it is Canadian.

    I live in oregon. What would be the cost to deliver to a small coastal lot in Cannon Beach, Or.?

    I really love this house! Would it be possible to exchange the shower to a small tub, if the bathroom could be changed around? Also do you deliver anywhere in the states? It really is a wonderful design, great job!

    There’s a lot to like about this house, but the kitchen is a giant failure. No stove. Not even a cooktop or built-in space for a microwave. I like to eat more than peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, so no cooking facilities is a big disappointment.

    What about shipping to Oregon or California? Would it be cost effective? Single Mom with son going off to college, housing prices and rental costs are killing me (over $2000 per month to rent, who can afford that, even when gainfully employed?!). LOVE the design and the strategy in the build. Thanks in advance. Cheers.

    I would like to see solar panels on the roof to power the incinerating toilet you don’t have with a tiny stove in the living room and replace the stove with a combo washer/drier and use an induction cooktop instead. Also the decks can be used for aquaponics to grow fish and greens and at least potted meadow plants for the bees and buterflies. There are now on the market beehives with spigots where you don’t have to scrape the honey. Just turn the spigot and it comes out. Also I would like to ser a rooftop system that captures rainfall to be collected somewhere in the housr for water.

    JUST AN AFTERTHOUGHT ADD A 3RD FLOOR WITH A COUPLE OF SKYLIGHTS AND ANOTHER DECK. THIS IS WHERE I WOULD HAVE MY HYDRPONICS AND BEEHIVES ON THE DECK. THE LOWER DECK AND LANDING COULD BE USED FOR THE PLANTS TO FEED THE BUTTERFLIES AND THE BEES.

    Any time you use steel for your framing you have the potential for thermal breaks. Heat will freely transfer through these areas unless you insulate the steel.
    The specs indicates the panels contain 2.5″ of closed cell foam. Closed cell foam is R-6 per inch so the insulation is roughly R-15. Building code requirements can differ the farther you go north which would mean the walls need to be thicker to accommodate thicker insulation requirements. Do you make thicker panels?

    If the square tubing is 1.5″ x 1.5″ how do you get 2.5″ of foam in a 1.5″ cavity when the exterior dimensions of the panels are 5′ x 8′ x 2.5″?

    INCREDIBLE tiny house!!! BEAUTIFUL! Best lay out I’ve ever seen and so charming!! :))

    There are small, efficient elevators for those who can’t climb stairs comfortably. They’re not much larger than dumb waiters. I wonder if one could replace the staircase (yet also have a ladder upstairs of some sort in case there is a power outage).

    This one has been reduced substantially and is now on sale for $19,500 ‘as is’. There is only one, the new owner will be responsible for transport and setup. It’s modular. each floor was built separately so it will come apart into two pieces, go on a flatbed, transported to site and craned into position. The plumbing was not complete, but with saving almost $30,000 from the original price, it’s still an outstanding value for a two-floor microhome. ebrawne@telus.net
