The Internet is full of pictures of DIY and custom tiny homes.
These are great, but there are more economical options out there that you don’t have to build yourself.
Here are seven mass-produced tiny houses you might want to consider:
The Roving is a 154 square foot tiny home that is great for people who want a tiny home on wheels that is easy to handle. It is only 16’4″ long and less than 7′ wide.
This home features a small front porch, a tiny dining room, a full bathroom, and a small kitchenette. You’ll find the bedroom in the loft just above the kitchen and bathroom areas.
The home comes equipped with an electric cooktop and a composting toilet. This means that all you’ll have to do is add some solar panels, and you’ll have a tiny home that can comfortably live off the grid.
I love the fact that the builders decided to create a tiny house that doesn’t extend all the way to 8.5′ in width. This should make it really easy to tow and easy to park. The downside of this is that the interior is only about 6′ wide inside, which could feel a bit too narrow for some people.
The Degsy is a 160 square foot tiny home that manages to fit a full bathroom, kitchen, dining room, living room, and bedroom all onto one floor. This means you’ll never have to worry about climbing in and out of a loft each day.
This feat was accomplished by putting a murphy bed over the top of the living room sofa. This removes some of the storage that you might find in other tiny homes.
Fortunately, the builders do make an effort to add some additional storage in by raising the kitchen up onto a platform. This creates a storage area underneath the kitchen and gives the space some delineation.
They also manage to sneak a closet across from the door, which is an excellent use of this space as it’s usually hard to fill appropriately.
Both The Roving and The Degsy are made by 84 Lumber.
The Rook started out as a custom-built tiny home with an original cost of $99,500.00. This tiny home became so popular that the company now builds a mass-produced version of it for $77,000.00.
At 24′ long and 8.5′ wide, this tiny home isn’t on the bigger end of tiny homes on wheels, but it isn’t on the small end either. It’s also heavy, so you’ll need a large truck if you plan on traveling often.
One of the most notable features of this tiny home is the way it looks. The outside almost looks like a sculpture, and the inside looks like a modern loft apartment that you’d find in an old city like Philadelphia or New York.
The home has a kitchen that could pass for a bar and an open sitting area that could easily hold more people in it than a home twice its size. There aren’t a lot of pictures of the bathroom online, but it does appear to have the same finishes as the rest of the house.
Whoever came up with the name of this tiny home really deserves some extra credit. I can’t think of a more fitting name for a home that is supposed to invoke a feeling of exploration and adventure.
This tiny home is 30′ long and 8.5′ wide, so you’ll need a large truck to go on these adventures with it, but it is certainly doable. The inside comes equipped with a kitchen that extends across the entire rear of the home while the front houses the full bathroom.
The interior design of the home is inspired by old-world design, and you’ll notice a lot of wood inside of it. There is even a Dutch door located on the side of the home. To buy this home, you’ll need just over $83,000.00.
Both The Mayflower and The Rook are built by Wind River Tiny Homes.
The Alpha tiny home is unique in that the center of it completely opens up on both sides. This creates an ample open space that leads out onto a sizeable fold-out deck.
The center is a multipurpose area that can transform into a living room or a dining room, depending on which pieces of folding furniture you pull out into it. It can even be left empty so that you can enjoy the open space.
On either side of this open area are a kitchen and a bathroom. These areas are raised up higher than the center area, which creates a nice visual change between each area.
Over the top of the bathroom is a loft bed that is accessed by a ladder. This home is made by New Frontier Tiny Homes.
The Luna tiny home is another tiny home built by New Frontier Tiny Homes. They classify this as their budget-conscious model, and it does look smaller than the Alpha.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find prices or sizes on either of these homes on their website, so I can’t tell you exactly how much you’d save by going with this home. I can tell you that the home has a great layout, though.
The entryway is located at the rear where you’ll head in through a glass door that’s built into a glass wall. This leads to the living area where you’ll be able to get a wonderful view through the glass wall that makes up the rear of the tiny home.
Move through this space, and you’ll find a small kitchen adjacent to a small bathroom. The sleeping area can be found in a loft over top of the kitchen and bathroom areas.
The Canada Goose
The Canada Goose is made by Mint Tiny Homes, and it comes in a 38′ model and a 42′ model. The main difference between the two is that the longer model has more living space.
This tiny home has a bedroom on the first floor as well as bedrooms in the loft areas. You’ll find a large residential refrigerator in the kitchen and a washer and a dryer in the bathroom.
A family could easily live in this home without much discomfort.
To top it all off, you’ll pay less than $90,000.00 for this home.
