Nashville, Tennessee-based New Frontier Tiny Homes looked to Scandinavia for inspiration when designing its recently-completed Riverside tiny house. Sure to turn heads with distinctive ebony stained cedar board and batten siding, the tiny house is offered as a turnkey model, so contains everything required to move in right away.

Riverside measures 8.5 x 24 ft (2.6 x 13.4 m), and comprises a total floorspace of 246 sq ft (22 sq m), including sleeping and storage areas. The towable home sits on a triple-axle trailer and features a metal roof, a small porch, and an external storage box. The interior finish echoes Scandi-chic with maple ply walls and hand hewn solid walnut hardwood floor.

Visitors enter via the porch and front door directly into the primary living area, which takes up most of the interior floorspace and includes a couch, a small table, a chair and a larger movable folding desk/dining table.

The living area leads into a kitchen with granite countertops, a stainless steel sink, and custom cabinets with plenty of storage. A two-burner movable cooktop is available and can be stowed in a drawer. The kitchen also includes a small fridge and freezer. In addition to a composting toilet, the bathroom boasts an attractive stainless steel shower cubicle

The sleeping loft includes a double bed and is reached by ladder, though New Frontier Tiny Homes can add a storage-style staircase if required. Directly opposite lies a small attic storage area.

Interior temperature is controlled by a Mini Split HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning unit), while water is heated by a tankless propane hot water heater. Lighting comes in the form of energy-efficient LEDs throughout.

The tiny home is currently wired-up for a standard electric hookup, though New Frontier Tiny Homes boss David Latimer told us that an off-grid setup could be added at cost.

Riverside is priced at US$79,000, including cutlery, furniture, and everything else pictured.
