THE TOOKIE TINY HOUSE


THIS SLABTOWN CUSTOMS BUILD IS AN 8' WIDE AND 24' LONG TINY HOUSE WITH RUSTIC PINE EXTERIOR SIDING INSTALLED IN A LAP PATTERN.  IT IS BUILT ON SKIDS INSTEAD OF A TRAILER SO IS MEANT TO BE SET UP PERMANENTLY ON A SITE, BUT IT IS STILL EASILY MOVED IF NEEDED.  IT'S BUILT ON TREATED LAMINATED WOODED SKIDS,  HAS 2X6 FLOOR JOISTS WITH HURRICANE TIES, 1" OF SUB FLOOR MATERIAL, FULL STANDARD 2X4 FRAMING WITH 9' TALL SIDEWALLS. THE 9' SIDEWALLS ARE USED TO GAIN MORE HEADROOM IN THE TWO SLEEPING LOFTS THIS HOUSE HAS, WITH 7' TALL CEILINGS IN THE AREAS BELOW THE LOFTS THIS GIVES US ALMOST 2' OF WALL SPACE IN THE LOFT AREAS BEFORE THE ROOF STARTS TO MAKE IT'S RISE.

THE HOUSE HAS AN 8X8 BEDROOM ON ONE END SO COMBINED WITH THE TWO SLEEPING LOFTS IT WILL ACCOMMODATE SEVERAL PEOPLE.  THE BATHROOM IS ON THE OPPOSITE END AND INCLUDES A 3'X3' SHOWER STALL,  FULL SIZE TOILET AND 18" SINK/VANITY.  THIS PARTICULAR UNIT WAS CUSTOM BUILT TO BE A RENTAL UNIT MUCH LIKE A MOTEL ROOM SO IT DOESN'T HAVE A COMPLETE KITCHEN, ONLY A DORM STYLE FRIDGE AND A MICROWAVE ALONG WITH OAK BASE CABINETS AND COUNTER TOP.  ABOVE THE COUNTER TOP ARE ELECTRIC AND CABLE CONNECTIONS TO ALLOW A WALL MOUNTED FLAT SCREEN TV.

AS WITH MOST OF OUR SMALL HOUSES IT IS FULLY WIRED AND PLUMBED LIKE A SITE BUILT HOME BUT HAS RV TYPE CONNECTIONS,  ITS FULLY INSULATED WITH FIBERGLASS IN THE FLOORS, WALLS AND CEILING.

THE HOUSE IS COMPLETELY SET UP FOR 110V SERVICE AND INCLUDES A 19 GALLON WATER HEATER AND HEAT/AIR UNIT MOUNTED IN THE WALL.  THE HOUSE HAS A 9 LITE 36" WIDE ENTRY DOOR, 3 3X3 WINDOWS INCLUDING ONE IN THE BEDROOM AND ONE IN THE BATHROOM FOR A NICE BALANCED EXTERIOR LOOK,  AS WELL AS ONE IN THE LIVING ROOM,  WITH ONE 2X2 WINDOW IN EACH LOFT.  ALTHOUGH THIS UNIT DOES NOT HAVE A COMPLETE KITCHEN, ADDING REMAINING NEEDED APPLIANCES WOULD NOT BE A PROBLEM. 

THE SET OF PICS SHOWN HERE WERE TAKEN BEFORE THE LADDERS WERE INSTALLED TO ACCESS THE LOFTS BUT THERE WAS ONE IN FRONT OF EACH LOFT BEFORE  IT WAS PURCHASED.  THE BATHROOM AND BEDROOM DOORS ON THIS UNIT ARE POCKET DOORS THAT SLIDE INTO THE WALL SO THEY DO NOT CREATE A PROBLEM WITH ROBBING SPACE AROUND THEM WHEN OPENED.

THE FLOORING IN THE HOUSE IS HARDWOOD LAMINATE WITH A CHERRY COLOR IN THE MAIN FLOOR AS WELL AS LOFTS.  A HIGH GRADE VINYL IS INSTALLED IN THE BATHROOM.

  1. Lovely work. Where are you located? I want to downsize. Been looking for over a year now.

  2. I love the flooring! Well done. I've been seeing tiny houses everywhere lately. Thanks for sharing all of the pictures. I'm always curious to see how people maximize their tiny house space.

  3. I'm in the final stages of creating a Vintage Airstream & Travel trailer campground & Resort in the mountains of North Carolina that will include Tiny Homes. The property is near Asheville on the main highway into the Great Smokey Mountain National Park with 530 ft. of frontage on the creek coming out of the Park. I'm in the market to buy multiple units to put into service as rental cabins. Our commercial frontage on the main highway (Hwy 19) can also provide a commercial lot for the sale of Tiny Houses to the general public, with the advantage of potential customers being able to rent an identical unit on the creek. If any of this would be of interest, please establish contact and we can start the conversation.
