Hogan’s Haven












We wanted to submit a few of our house, Hogan’s Haven. Our house features a retractable staircase which also doubles as a pantry as well as kids’ size bunkbeds.

A custom-built tiny house for a family of four in Becker, Minnesota. More info. Hogan’s Haven Tiny House.

    Is that an open bath tub I see! Wow you just gave me an amazing idea for my tiny house bath. Very beautifully planned out and I love the dinning table set up. Superb job!!

    making lots of wonderful memories here.

    Very nice. I was wondering how you heat and cool the home. Minnesota and all that. 🙂

    nice use of storage, I could easily call this home because it has all I would need. Except the bathroom – i’d be interested to know how easy it is to keep clean with all the wood?

      Hi Christine,
      These photos were taken the day of the final reveal for an episode of HGTV’s “Tiny House, Big Living” so we have since added a protective wall covering to the shower walls but the walls are all sealed so it cleans up very easily.

    What are the dimensions of this tiny house? It does seem as if it’s big enough and designed smartly enough for a family.

    • Lisa E. May 2, 2016 at 12:01 pm - Reply

      It’s a triple axle so my guess would be somewhere in the 28′ – 32′ range.

    • Caitie May 4, 2016 at 10:21 pm - Reply

      Hi June,
      It is a 26′ trailer. I believe total square footage is 186.

    Does the hinged piece of artwork fold down into a table?

    • Caitie May 4, 2016 at 10:35 pm - Reply

      Yes, it folds down into a table :). It is the same material as our countertop.

    Beautiful home! I love the exposed wood and practicality. I also love seeing fellow Minnesotans rocking the Tiny Houses!

    Love your tiny house. What was your cost to build? What is your heat source?
    thanks for sharing

    • Caitie May 4, 2016 at 10:40 pm - Reply

      Our cost was about $45k. We did a lot of the work ourselves and shopped around, all of our appliances were found via Craigslist. The floor is heated using a Warmboard system, we love it. http://www.warmboard.com/

    I love it, bunk beds and all. Outside of your tiny home has soooooo much living! Enjoy!

    How do you reach the pots and pans on the high shelf? What’s in between the bathroom and refrigerator wall? A closet?

    • Caitie May 4, 2016 at 10:42 pm - Reply

      The bottom step of the staircase is a removable step stool that we use to reach the shelf and for the kids to wash their hands. The space between the bathroom and kitchen is a little closet.

    You will enjoy the house for a few yrs when your kids are a couple yrs older this isnt the place to raise a family.

    One of the absolute best tiny houses I’ve seen so far.

    Awesome job… love the kitchen layout with the full size refrigerator…

    Wow! I think I have spent hundreds upon hundreds of hours viewing Tiny Homes and then some!
    But, this is the first one I have seen actual step drawers you completely retract as if they were just
    drawers! I am impressed!

    Nice… though those stairs seem a little deadly… perhaps if the drawer fronts were recessed?

    Beautiful home…

    2 questions –

    how do you get up to the second loft area?

    And I LOVE the space you have for your kids, but what’s the plan as they get older?

    Hello. Your house is wonderfull. Congratulation
    How do you heat the water of your Warmboard system ? whith solar electricity, passive solar, gaz or just electric grid?

    Are there plans available for your stairs? If so, how could I get them. They are perfect solution for us. We are turning prefab barn into a tiny house. Looking everywhere for stair solution. Hoping this is the one.
