    Great design and space. I could see myself and family living in this, or using it for vacations. I would add just a few things and it would be just about perfect. I would add railing to the shelves and a draw bridge type front porch and a detachable awning. 🙂

        You have expanded on the many types of tiny houses I’ve seen.
        As much as I like wood for some applications, I would like to change it up with
        other materials and add a bath tube/shower. It’s airy and lite, for me very tastefully done.

      Do any of those tiny homes have a fold down deck that latches back into place when traveling?

        You can slap one of those on almost any tiny home.

    Darling. I would have made the sinks under counter so its easier to wipe things down without getting caught on the sink edges. And made the cabinets without the outside frames that need to be dusted. (or not).

    OMG Love it Realy One of the only ones that I have seen that could actuly work for my family. We are a 4 person family, (me, hubby, 4yrold&3yrold girls). I would have to have a more framed and fully railed up to the ceiling for the loft with the stairs. My 2 would push their toys of the edge and say oppys lol. We live in a one br apt right new bleh.

    Who in their RIGHT mind would pay $85,000 for this when you can buy a house for this. At only 355 sq ft. that’s way too much. You could buy a brand new camper at that size with more beds and more amenities.
    Only my opinion.

      Your right, calculate the the price per Sq ft your talking Manhattan type prices, too expensive for a wood box on four wheels…

      • Lenzinger February 19, 2014 at 11:59 am - Reply

        In Manhattan studios start in the mid 400k . And by mid they mean upper mid. This is cheaper than a ny studio. Unless you are in my with this paying hundreds in tolls and parking every commute.

      That is way too much for a tiny house. For $85,000 where I live, I could build a great house. That is just too expensive and I love tiny houses but not for that.

      Where do you live that a traditional house costs $85,000???? I live near Boston…Couldn’t buy a closet for that amount! I love the design…would also make a few slight changes but basically it’s perfect!!

    Cost per sq ft, is not cost effective, especially rolling down the hwy on a trailer,to many what ifs?

  20. Evan January 30, 2014 at 11:35 am - Reply

    I’ve been wondering how much is enough for a family of four, this looks about right. I love all the exposed beams.

    Those squawking at the price don’t realize that a freestanding home in Northern CA (where this was built) begins at $100,000 (in the middle of nowhere or the ghetto) and goes up rapidly for a desirable location and a clean pest report. Once you factor in a place to park, this house should cost about half as much as a 2 br/1 ba home in a decent neighborhood, and it’s brand spankin’ new and energy efficient.

    All that said, I wouldn’t want to tow it up Hwy 9 out of Felton! Then over Hwy 17?? Yikes!

    i have been looking at tiny houses web sites and on youtube for a couple of years now. one thing i am finding is that tiny houses appear to be a great deal IF the owner builds themselves. buying a well made house pre-built becomes too expensive. only slabtown customs makes tiny houses at prices anywhere affordable for most folks, although apparently he did have a bad spell for a time where he got flaky with a customer or two, but looking at his youtube channel, he is back in business. he is building great tiny houses for 20-25k.
    these guys i am thinking probably do a better quality job than Slabtown customs, but their prices are just too high. its makes me wonder how many of these would be tiny house builders have done their homework about who their customer really is. the affluent, looking for a extra 4th house, or low and middle income folks trying to avoid a mortgage? they and a lot of other tiny builders might be better off selling plans by and large and leave actual building to custom builds

    This house will last a hell of alot longer than a camper or RV! How many 60 year old RV’s do you see on road? How many wood houses do you see?

    The whole point of a tiny home is to be small and to be AFFORDABLE! These prices are ridiculous!!!! I could purchase a home with one acre in my area for close to $85,000. Makes no sense that people are taking what is supposed to be practical and earth friendly and putting the typical overpriced waste factor into it. These types of homes are for the trendies, who think it’s ‘cool’ to live in one for six months until they get bored.

    So what is it 30K for ammenities 55K worth of water proofing for the wood, true for 85K you can get a decked out diesel class A motorhome

    I think this is one of the best tiny homes I’ve seen so far. Because there is only myself to house, its size is perfect. That there is a stair to the bedroom loft that I’d sleep in, it makes access vastly easier for this in-her-60’s woman. The lightness, airiness, combination of woods and other materials–it’s all very appealing.

    I’d have a real home, not this boarding house room; I’d have privacy, peace, quiet and serenity in such a sweet little house.

    Kudos to the designer(s) and builders.

    I think this is a beautiful tiny house. The only thing I would change is close in both of the doors shown and have one glass door situated between the bathroom and the foot of the stairs. That would free up more wall and floor space and expand your furnishing options.

      I agree Connie, I love the colors, and with my one child, and pets, it is perfect! 85, 000 is for the convenience and materials….well built is worth it! Have your own land, make it off grid, and you could live well, and it will last….beautiful!

    $85,000.00 ? Are you kidding ??? What a joke!

    Apparently, a number of people here think that the builder should be a donating the home to them as charity. Tiny houses are affordable – IF you build it yourself. If you don’t, then you’re not just paying for the materials, but for the builder’s time and (very considerable) effort. Why folks have trouble with builders making a profit is a bit of a mystery, since most folks expect to get paid for the job that *they* do. To the poster who claims “you can buy a home for $85K,” I’d say, hey! buy a home then! I live in Canada, where the average house price nationally is – wait for it – $369,339. That makes a tiny home pretty affordable here – whether you build it yourself or not.

    Thank you so much for posting these photographs. I wondered about the weight of a tiny house that is 40 feet? Do you have an approximate number?

    How tall is this tiny house would it fit under an underpass on a highway or would you need to take back roads?

    • Cj June 12, 2016 at 2:48 am - Reply

      In most states the legal maximum height is 13’6″ without having to get a special permit to move it.

    For me: floor plan almost spot on, fix that funky back kitchen wall, put on a gooseneck trailer, stairs bedroom over the gooseneck, bigger windows, changes to roofline and height. But this is the basic design I’ve been looking for!

    My name is Jason Avila. I’m interested in visiting your location and seeing any tiny houses you have done or /and building at the moment. I can’t seem to find your address on the website nor a telephone number. If you can please contact me as soon as possible I’ll appreciate it.

    I believe, from what i see, the builder did a great job in layout design and quality of fit and finish. Im currently constructing a much smaller single axle tiny house for my family as a weekender for camping. Im a GC by trade, and plan on beginning to build for customers who are looking for unique, quality tiny homes. Yes, $85k in my area (Ohio Valley) would buy you a small, 50-100 yr old home, possibly needing repairs. Not much bang for the buck. But I also believe a home of comparison to this can possibly be built for 25-30% less without sacrificing quality or safety, or amenities. I plan to put mine in my local homeshow and rv show this winter/spring, hoping to build as part of my business. Have a great day!

    There were quite a few things that ticked boxes for me on this one. The front door is a nice shape and the exterior and interior colour is purple (my favourite colour), but what really got my attention were the stairs with BANNISTERS leading to a great sized bedroom with STANDING HEIGHT. And the bathroom looks great as well, and there does appear to be a lot of space for furniture. The link states the house as being $75000.
