    Now THIS is a simple, lovely, no-frills, cheaper?, and solid design. I do hope those windows are insulated, though. It looks lovely having all that light, but all that window means all that warm air could be leaving. Other than that, it’s very nice. Very good job. It is cheaper, right?

  • Sandie says:

    I love that the bed is on the same level as everything else and not in a loft, would be easier for my ol’ aching bones. I love all the windows except for the heat loss. Would absolutely love it if it were not so modern and more rustic with a wood stove! would be perfect! oh and a porch or deck.

  • Jean says:

    Absolutely gorgeous. Wish we could see the bathroom.

    Love the open space design. Very well planned. Insulated the right way, it would be passive solar heated in all the summer months. Though I am curious to how it is heated in winter.

  • Mike says:

    Not a thing you don’t need. That trick with the mirror next to the bathroom door extending the cabinets for the illusion of more space is clever. If I had to guess, I’d say hydronic heating in the floors. Soo quiet. But this would probably heat up well with a ceramic heater if it’s insulated.

    This model could be enlarged just slightly and include a loft so that there’s more living space where the bed is now. And I’d probably add a small glass-front wood stove. Sound track for the snowfall…

    I`m from Germany.
    I would like to ask for the price?

    Nice greetings, Nicole Idzikowski

    Nice! Looks like he’s got at least six units in various stages of production, which means he’s actually getting orders and is busy. I’ve seen far too many of these startups where they use other people’s ‘examples’ as their own advertising, which makes you wonder what that builder’s real models would look like.

  • Scott W says:

    Looks really nice. I wonder how efficient it is though with all those windows when it comes to heating/cooling?

  • Mary Knoblauch says:

    I hope those large windows are triple pane and tinted to keep the hot sun out and the winter cold as well.

  • Karla G says:

    This is my favorite tiny house design ever! No lofts; big kitchen and lots of windows!

  • Nerida says:

    Assuming it is well insulated I dont think would changed a thing. Oh being a girl, curtains please, or is that glass one that flips to block out at the touch of a button?

    oops take that back I would round the end corner of the kitchen bench, gauranteed I would live with a permanet bruise from banging into that so close to the bed. But still if someone offered this to me as a gift I would graciously accept :).

  • Nerida says:
