    Cool design and definitely a different direction than most go with! I like the huge bathroom and dig the double bed loft! I am wondering though what is the heat source and where is it?

    Is there no master bedroom, or does the master bedroom have double beds? Gunguru01, I saw what looks like an electric heater in the bathroom, but not anything elsewhere.

      If you look over the door on the end, I see some kind of a air conditioner and maybe heater.

      my thoughts..
      *Wow, pyramid skylights! three of them! I had look the price up once, but cant remember. I have always read that skylights eventually leak , and this house has 4 of them. I wonder how much it will be to repair them in the future, i think it might be worth it though.

      *If I had a large bathroom in a tiny house, i would insist on a bathtub. even an ofuro tub at least, or a steam box.

      *I love white walls, but I think white interior needs a fireplace, even one of those tiny ones.

      *I could have sworn this house was on Tiny House Hunting.

      * Another very nice AirBnB property. Really who would want to stay in a hotel these days with so many great options.

        Skylight leaks are easy to fix. Use roof caulk in a heavy dose.

    Blown away by the detailing. The bathroom is beyond wonderful. Assume there’s a fridge under the counter. Absolutely beautiful job.

    I love this design especially the bathroom! That being said can someone please explain the need to have two entrances?! I envision a lovely bookcase or media area instead of a second door.

      Possibly for fire safety or to be able to enter/exit while the side porch is not extended?

        Not very safe seeing both doors are obstructed when the bed is folded out. Also no exhaust for the gas range. Design must not only be aesthetically pleasing but functional/practical as well.

    I adore this! Perfect for my new business! What would the cost be?

    Patrick Romero has a stellar design eye. I really like idea of a generous bathroom that doubles as a dressing room/primary closet space. Tons of natural light supplemented by tons of accent lighting (in the bath closet, above the kitchen sink, in the nook, along the bulkheads, etc). Super.

      i dont like the idea of putting your closet in your bathroom and exposing your clothes to moisture, even with an air vent. The closet had better be air tight.

      • Natalie March 25, 2016 at 2:11 pm - Reply

        Different priorities for different people: in my climate, a proper air vent would be sufficient.

    Lovely!! Anybody know where to get those dreamy skylights?

    Who was the builder? Kinda wish that would also get posted. Also, interested in if it was self-built or there was a builder hired.

    Way to go Patrick! Love every detail. The skylights are amazing, the bathroom is realistic, and it looks like a house (not someone’s tool shed.) Awesome job!

    I absolutely love it and would love to buy this one. Any way that could be worked out Mr. Romero? I own a small home in Oklahoma but had already made decision to go tiny. This is just what I was looking for. If you would consider my offer, please contact me. Hoping I hear from you.

    Beautiful, clean design. Bravo!
    I love the skylights, bathroom layout and loft design. Very nice work.

    HANDS DOWN best bathroom I’ve ever seen in a tiny house!!! As a foody, I would somehow rearrange the kitchen and not have the stove directly next to the sink … Other than that — fabulous!!!!

    • Elizabeth March 10, 2016 at 5:06 am - Reply

      I agree… actually, I would have a two or three burner stove top and ditch the oven though. Regardless, I think this is the best tiny house I have seen considering its size.

    Are those window covers solar panels or just storm covers?

    Very nice.Love the roof line.As TH Builder,i admire this. More Kitchen would be my only criticism.Love the fact of 2 doors and plenty of natural light . Back yard needs to be airbrushed ,or cleaned up. LOL.Well done . WeezaComin,Tiny Homes Kamloops BC.

    Love the attention to detail, for example the string of lights in the bedroom! Lots of natural light and windows. Excellent use of space!!!! Not cookie cutter like othets. Like others have said, nice bathroom 😉

    Nicely designed, bright and cheery. Being a tall person, I have this overwhelming need to just keep the ceiling sloped and not have any beams across the sleeping area. You can only hit your head so many times before you start to display Berry Dingles. I mean – brain damage.

    house is a lovely design.. placed in a dump?? I would rather have a real built in bed where the sofa bed and table are placed. I alson would need either an auxilary building or someplace for some storage there is so little that I can see in the house. I do love the skylights. I have not found skylights to be a issue with leaking if they are high quality and properly installed. Most roofs will also eventually leak when not maintained.

      That’s NOT a dump – it’s firewood under tarps. Sheesh.

      Stunning design and completely different from anything I’ve seen before. I’d buy this in a heartbeat.

    Every body looks but no-one sees.those two doors=1 is a bathroom door the other is a door to the towel storage area. and yes there is a heater in the bath or a radio set up. over the single door is a cooling and/or heating unit. the house has double doors leading to the deck, coffee mornings sitting outside, and lockable when away. also the other door is also a fire escape route. this house is so innovative and airy. rope lights in loft bedroom, very creative! Patrick know that your house design is wonderful and numb skulls will ALWAYS find fault with anything new and differently made. Love the design and the bath is well thought out. Great job, cheers!

      Before you insult others you should at least comprehend what they are writing. There are 2 doors going outside from the living room which, to aid you understanding of the pics is on the OTHER side of the house from the bathroom.

    I would so buy this home!

    Hello, are you the builder of this wonderful Tiny House and do you build for others?

    How much would one of these cost fully furnished ? Love it! Want one!

    I am intrigued by the whole concept. I am interested in obtaining more information about this structure. As the daughter of a renowned architect, I am definitely interested in the plans for this house. Please email me at your earliest convenience so that we may discuss this further. Well done. Thank you

    This is beautiful. I want to make a tiny home so I can spend a chunk of my life traveling, but still at home!

    Love the layout. It may just be perfect:)

    Unbelievable, what a wonderful design, I love everything about it. Unfortunately I’m 71 and live in Ontario Canada and it would have to be insulated for sure. Just wanted you to know what a wonderful job you did on it.

    very pretty and clean design but I am seeing ZERO storage for clothes, shoes etc. Am I missing it?

    Heat/AC source is a question and also I see a stove and sink but where is the refrigerator?
