    The builder has done a fine job of putting the effort in to achieving a high quality of finish especially on the interior detail. The outside has it’s own unique look with the interesting contrast of the metal sheeting in contrast to the painted and stained timbers. I’d love to know how this house handles the weather thought,- to me it seems the stained timber door trimmings would collect and hold water – needlessly causing premature weather-proofing issues…. thoughts?

      For these inquiries, ladder to the loft pictured on left, kitchen sink and stove on right. Of corse there is one directed at the ladder, too. Full picture front to back. I suppose if you stood out side and had the camera in the window, but seriously, look at the house. showing a door should be enough from the inside.
      Not much left to the imagination. Pictures say it all. My favorite tiny houses, log cabin style, 2 i’ve seen only have outhouses,so ok,want to live simplicty, well, i don’t want to regress that much, small is great, but I want a bathroom!
      Anyway, I personally love small, clean houses. I will own one soon enough!

    This is a great example of the importance of detailing. Think everything through for your space requirements and lifestyle and then examine how to pare it all down so that nothing looks out of place. Simplify and simplify again, and you’ll get great results like this.

    What is the extension at the end of the house? Why is there no safety railing next to the bed? I would replace the oven with a combo washer/dryer and install an induction cooktop on the counter. No solar cells on the eoof?

    This is a gorgeous Tiny House. Beautiful both inside and out. Nicely done.

    Love looking at these small homes but HATE how they never really show how all the bathroom amenties are fitted into the small space. We are given a glimpse of a handbasin or a corner of whatever but NEVER how it all fits in.

      HATE?? Come now, use your imagination, repeat after me – “sink, shower, commode”. I’m sure a polite note to the owner requesting simple details and perhaps a photo or two would be a kinder and more appropriate approach to addressing questions regarding this exquisite small home.

    Beautiful!! Question: the gas burners on the right next to what looks like a wood partition. Have you experienced any darkening of the wood from the heat of the flames? Normally building codes would require an insulated non-combustible material for a specified height when a stove is next to a [wall] vertical surface. A broad pan on a full flame could easily ignite the wood? Please respond via email. Thanks. again, beautiful design through and through.

    I have to say, I love the look of the exterior of this THOW. i like the fact that it looks like a commercial trailer, with the shiny metal siding!

    Agreed, more pictures. Love the sewing machine cabinet–I’ve thought of using mine the same way for expandable table-counter space. Very classy–one of the nicest, most livable I’ve seen, but I’d love to see more!

    Thank you for sharing. This is only the second model I feel I could live in.
    This tiny house fits me to a tea, but I would love additional information on this model. Where can I find it?
    I would also love to see the shower and toilet area to see if there is room for a washer/dryer over the toilet.
    I pray you have a long and happy life in your tiny home 😉

    THIS IS ONE OF THE FINEST EXAMPLES OF A TINY HOME THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN. MAGNIFICENT!

    style factor: 10
    finish: 10
    livability: probably a 10

    One of the best looking designs I’ve seen.

    Love it, but half the house is missing. By this I mean the bathroom and a shot of the view when you walk through the door to the other end.

    Lovely–this is just beautiful. I am looking for a “modern” THOW to be on a property in the SW US when I start law school in the fall. I would love to see more information (on building or purchasing/relocating) on this home or another similar model. Can anyone help, please? Thanks!

    Love it. all of it. Beautiful and well executed and designed. I could change a few small touches to suit my needs. this is not a criticism. One of the greatest advantages of these tiny houses is that it is possible to make tiny changes to suit each individual.

    Wow! Soooo tiny, but certainly beautiful! Great details and choices on appliances, sinks, etc. I love everything about it…kudos!

    How very “Miami” – though the license plate indicates California! Very nice exterior details. With California no wonder they don’t worry about the exterior details being a problem in ‘weather.’

    I would have loved more photos, and to see the loft bed showing those lovely windows.

    For the person who asked about the gas stove beside the wood, I have a gas stove beside a butcher block countertop and I have had absolutely no problem with discolouration or heat affecting the wood.

    Like the design, but I would like it even better if there was some sort of screening for the wheels to make it look more finished, since it is parked in a neighborhood full of houses. There are a number of ways it could be done with the same attention to detail as the rest of the house and be easily removable if they plan on moving.

    Would like to know what the cost is, do you have pictures of the bathroom. What is the shipping cost to Florida.

    The house is very nice and well designed, but why don’t use completely that half meter of the sink recess to widen the whole bathroom (and consequently the upper loft)? I think it could be a better usage of room not to feel trapped in those small bathrooms, while the house size wouldn’t be “in danger” for this tiny increase… Just a matter of a few inches and livability.

    beautiful and unique. the exterior reminds me of a 1950s diner, which is why I love it.

    Hi Ron,
    Your home is beautiful and shows an amazing degree of thoughtfulness and craftsmanship. I have a question. My husband and I are in the process of building our tiny house in WI. I am concerned about interior condensation. I notice on the exterior of your home a tube with perforations extending from what I assume to be the bathroom. Is this a vent of some sort? I recall reading about an active air exchange system for tiny houses that places an air intake “tube” at one end and an exhaust tube at the other end of the building. Hoping to find someone who has been using one so I can get their opinion. They are not cheap.

    Blessings to you – enjoy your beautiful home and the lifestyle it provides!
    Pam

    I am the (very) happy recipient of this gorgeous tiny home. Ron did an amazing job with every detail and was thorough in every communication and preparation as well. I cannot thank him enough for entrusting it to me. If any of you are interested in staying in this house to feel it out, it is available for rent here https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/5375962.
    Best to you all

    Does anyone know how much this house was to build ?

    Hi Ron — I’m here in Ashland and want to speak with you, meet you, in person to talk about a tiny house for me! Thanks so very much for your speedy reply…love & hugs

    Did you buy the lot to place your home on? I plan to move to Ashland in the near future and want a tiny home. I’ve heard the city allows them. Any restrictions? Your home is beautiful!
