    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. :)

      Excellent ideas.

        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?

      • Reply Bundy March 13, 2015 at 8:42 pm

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

    I LOVE this! Here I thought I had a design all picked out to start building! THIS is the one I want! How much did it cost to build? Did you follow specific plans?

  • Reply Joe January 28, 2014 at 2:16 pm

    $85,000.00

    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.

    I don’t see 7 bedrooms, though….. What am I missing?

  • Reply Christina January 28, 2014 at 7:02 pm

    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.

    • Reply steve January 29, 2014 at 8:09 am

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

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

        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.

    • Reply Michelle February 3, 2014 at 5:15 pm

      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.

  • Reply tinycamper January 28, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    That is a micro mansion! I LOVE it!

    hello-only need 2 bedrooms at most-is that possible-I live on a small cattle organic garden farm in southeast ks. please let me know if you have anything smaller-this house is a work of art-thank you for your time-craig

    Love this tiny house design except the color in the bathroom think it should stay the wood grains and natural looking.

  • Reply Majda January 29, 2014 at 5:40 am

    This house is amazing! perfect! love it! bravo! greetings form Serbia : )

  • Reply steve January 29, 2014 at 8:05 am

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

  • Reply Evan January 30, 2014 at 11:35 am

    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

    Love the 2 lofts and the staircase. Nicely done!

  • Reply Joe February 3, 2014 at 2:48 pm

    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

  • Reply Joyce August 28, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    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.

  • Reply Beverly September 4, 2014 at 12:34 am

    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 love this…beautiful. Love the colors….some of the small houses become bland. I enjoy bursts of fun color!

  • Reply Ronda January 9, 2015 at 12:05 am

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

  • Reply Jennifer January 9, 2015 at 9:51 pm

    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?

  • Reply kristen January 29, 2015 at 3:49 am

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

  • Reply Bundy March 13, 2015 at 8:50 pm

    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!

  • Reply Kevin May 31, 2015 at 12:04 am

    What is the weight on this?
