Canada’s Structural Spaces is relatively new to the tiny house scene, but yet brings a lot of experience to the table. Chad Smith lived in a tiny house for four years with his young family and has been designing furniture and buildings for 25 years. This all shows with the recently-completed Curved 260 Micro Home, which shoehorns a lot of home into only 260 sq ft (24 sq m), and uses high-high end materials intended to last.

The Curved 260 Micro Home weighs around 11,000 lb (4,990 kg) and sits on a custom trailer. It requires a wide-load permit for towing onto highways, ferries, and the like, and should be idea of extra
like a bespoke mobile home made with great high end materials, pretty than an RV-type setup which you’d store moving of spot to spot regularly.

The home measures 13.6 x 10.6 x 32 ft (4.1 x 3.2 x 9.8 m), which include hitch, and stands out in a crowded scene of shed-like homes for its looks, being clad in cedar shingle siding and cedar trim. The alluring curved roof adds headroom and was made by via the effortless curve of salvaged cedar log utilized in construction.

The interior of the two-story Curved 260 Micro Home looks sensibly arranged and spacious, and comes with generous glazing to ensure ample effortless light. The main living space has a wood-burning stove (there’s in addition an electric heater), while the kitchenette sports propane burners and on-demand hot water. The bathroom showcases a toilet, sink and a double-head shower.

There’s integrated storage space in the staircase, which leads up to a tiny sleeping area with extra
storage space and adequate room to fit a double bed.

The materials utilized are of a high high end for a home of its type and these include efficient Low-E windows, solid fir doors, and hardwood flooring. Insulation R-values are rated as R28 on the ceiling, and R20 and R14 on the floor and walls, respectively.

But the home isn’t already outfitted to operate off-grid, Smith reports which it may be relatively trivial to manufacture the changes and fit a solar or wind power kit.

Structural Spaces sees the Curved 260 Micro Home serving as a major home, or extra
guest quarters. It’s already up for sale and priced at CAD 90,000 (US$71,200).
