    1. This is certainly an attractive home, but Sue, you took the words out of my mouth. A full size refrigerator seems both illogical and out of balance with the rest of the home. Any, yes, what is it with more recent tiny homes not having any real living area? Did we miss the memo about a preference for standing room only? (And don’t get me started on the trend of minuscule bath sinks.)

  1. My husband once had a work assignment that required him to be on-site round-the-clock for a stretch of six months (environmental remediation). Luckily, it was in the same state as our residence so I did get to see him a few times in that period. Once, during the job, he asked that I join him and bring our old, second-hand 24′ Coachman Leprechaun. We were the envy of the rest of the crew for that weekend: he got to eat real food and not just microwave junk, and sleep on something better than a cot. The background scenery in the pics reminded me of that period in our marriage for some odd reason. A tiny would have been glorious. The strict eat-sleep-shower setup of this one makes me think it could have real application in such a scenario. Hubby’s work hours were grueling – he and the crew had no real time for anything else so a lack of cuddle/movie/lounging space would have been no loss, but the morale boost, sheer practicality of a kitchen, and quiet comfortable sleep = better fed, better-rested crew. The could have cycled through it, to share.

  2. One thing this model gets right is not wasting space under the roof for a porch and deck. They’re usually too small to be anything more than ornamental, and take away valuable space that could be used to make the interior more spacious and useful. Fold down decks and fold up porch overhangs make a LOT more sense.

    At some point, the TH community will work out what makes the best configuration for a Tiny House. Stuff like full-size appliances, impractical floor plans, inept window sizing and placement and full-size detailing take away from a great home. Then there’s the exterior detailing and surfacing and color. If you don’t take the time to work out ALL of the details well, you’re throwing money away because dumb and ugly has no resale value.
