Steel Tiny House


The concept of making a tiny house lighter while also stronger is very satisfying and this is the result of this tiny house built using square metal tubing.


A 180 square feet tiny house on wheels in Heber Springs, Arkansas framed with steel tubing to keep weight down. More info. here.

    I have two quibbles: no privacy whatsoever for the bed, in fact it seems like the bed is on display; and there is no photo showing the use of the space under the bed. I had to follow the link to find out that there is actually access, and that two kayaks fit under there (as per ad). The bed and privacy thing is a personal preference – I think that of many TH. A really awesone curtain arrangement would do, just something from keeping all the fumes from cooking/eating off the bed at those times, and also as a kind of neat feature in case two folks are sharing a tiny and one is up and the other isn’t, you know? Otherwise, I do like your efforts – you even have a closet!

    This is a great TH – the setup is really nice. I love the area of the bed with good headroom. Nice under storage (smart idea). I do understand that this is 180 sf and so wish it had a sitting area, but then again bed could be the place one would only need to relax. Love all those beautiful large windows.

    Now this is a Tiny I could actually live in; the “loft” is far easier to access than any others I’ve ever seen, with the exception of those with a bedroom over the gooseneck on that specific kind of trailer. This one is just about perfect for someone like myself who has no privacy issues, being and living alone, with only an extremely rare visitor to see my home. One of the best true Tiny houses I’ve seen in a very long time.

      The bed is actually a murphy bed. A sofa emerges as the bed is raised up. You have to click on the link to see the pic of the bed up in the gallery. I must say, it looks really stupid with the bed up. you can see the bed frame and mattress. It looks really tacky..and a little dangerous. the bed should hide behind a cabinet or something, but the sofa is attached to it which looks like a serious design problem. But no reason you have to stick to that sofa/bed choice.

      Fur placemats for the dishes??? hahaha!

    Fur placemats AND a lot of tomato sauce. Dangerous! However lots of positives in this little house. One thing I’d do is use a barn door for the bedroom – perhaps using some glass to let the light in. Great headroom, but it’s almost like lying on the stove and I wouldn’t want my sheets to smell like marinara sauce.
    Also, there’s no comfy seating but you could easily get comfortable outdoors.

    I finally looked at the ad and saw the additional feature of the bed being a sort of Murphy bed. I think I’d have to have it side-mounted–I haven’t bothered with a television in over five years, so certainly could put a bed on that wall–and would install a washer-dryer combo in that designated space under the steps to the bed. Other than that, I don’t see anything I’d really want to change. But, as I had stated in my previous posted reply, I live alone and have very few visitors, so my bed being on display all the time would be no issue for me, although I do like the idea of having other furniture than the bed to sit on.

    Too maculine with all the halffisished dark wood. It makes the room look smaller than it is. The bed needs more privacy to prevent nights of disturbed sleep.

    steel frame? so then why not a used RV for half the price and twice the convenience? Tiny houses began as a way for people with few skills to built a very small wood house on wheels. This was cheap because the labor was free and there were few materials due to the tiny size plus there were no property taxes etc. There has been progress, some of it great, over the last 20 years of tiny houses. RV manufacturers have also improved their offerings over the last 20 years also. for those of you who wish to argue and attack this possibility, feel free

  • Kathy says:

    Why not an RV? Because they’re not well insulated and most of the interiors are 80s leftovers butt ugly? Although I bet Smart manufacturers may someday blur the wall between tiny houses and traditional RVs for the betterment of everybody 🙂

    This one’s really stylish, if not practical for more than one person. I hope someday the pocket door bathroom comes back , after the very charming Barn Door enthusiasts get tired of incomplete screening of bathroom activity.
