This tiny house is big on luxury

by • July 20, 2016 • 19s Comments

With tiny houses, luxury showcases can be left out due to dimensions constraints, and it is actually odd adequate to see a version with a bathtub, let alone anything fancier. The Alpha Tiny House, by New Frontier Tiny Homes, is a thing of an exemption, and goes a few way to try and contribute genuine luxury in such a tiny dwelling, which include a full-dimensions jacuzzi tub and shower, high-end finish, and a sizeable eight-person dining table.

  • The tiny house measures 24 x 8.6 ft (7.3 x 2.6 m)
  • It comprises a total floorspace of 240 sq ft (22 sq m)
  • A wall folds-down to turn it into a tiny porch
  • The wall in folded-up position

New Frontier Tiny Homes is the firm behind the Scandinavian-style turnkey tiny house we not long ago covered, and the finish on its Alpha Tiny House is similarly astounding. This one is clad in Western Red Cedar siding and Shou Sugi Ban-treated cedar siding – the latter a Japanese technique of charring wood to increase its durability.

The tiny house sits atop a custom double-axel trailer and measures 24 x 8.6 ft (7.3 x 2.6 m), with a total floorspace of 240 sq ft (22 sq m). It has an odd turn it into, with its gently sloping metal roof and sizeable sliding glass doors. These both provide access and open up the main living space to the outside.

The wall opposite the glass doors is fairly neat. It can be opened outward to turn it into a porch, while a sizeable aluminum and glass garage-style door slides upward to provide access.

Inside, the lounge/dining area is the many spacious part of the house. Steps major to the kitchen reveal hidden storage space space and a sizeable eight-person dining table with two bench seats.

This same storage space section in addition contains a pull-out custom oak ladder which provides access to the sole loft bedroom with kingdimensions bed. The lack of stairs is maybe the one big drawback to this layout and won’t be practical for everyone, especially the elderly or disabled. Whether the trade-off for a sizeable living area is worth it can depend on very own taste.

The kitchen comes with a wall clad in reclaimed barn wood (as is the entire home’s ceiling), a sizeable steel farmhouse apron sink, stainless steel appliances, a mini-dishwasher, and custom cabinets. At the opposite end of the home lies the bathroom. This comes with a composting toilet, which enviable jacuzzi tub and shower, and a washer/dryer combo.

The Alpha Tiny House is wired-up for a standard electrical hookup, yet New Frontier Tiny Homes contributes off-grid options at extra cost. Hot water comes of a tankless propane hot water heater, and heating and cooling is handled by a mini-split HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) unit.

The whole create oozes high end and commands a predictably high price. It starts at US$79,000, but a turnkey version precisely as pictured with all appliances, etc, is on the market for $95,000.
