Spacious living room serves as social heart of Clover tiny house
Though the whole point of tiny houses is that everything is smaller, if there's one area that tends to be shrunk down a little too much with most models, it's the living room. The Clover tiny house, by Modern Tiny Living, bucks this trend with a larger than average living room.
The Clover measures 24 ft (7.3 m)-long and is based on a double-axle trailer. It has a fairly standard but pleasant enough exterior clad in lapped smart siding and is topped by a steel roof. Inside, the walls are finished in poplar and the floors are decked in vinyl.
Visitors enter next to the kitchen, which has custom cabinetry, a four-burner stove top, convection oven, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, sink, and a breakfast bar.
Nearby is the living room. This is raised, and laid-out in a U-shape, with generous glazing surrounding it. A large sofa that takes up most of the room can be converted into a bed, and it should make for a nice space for entertaining – something that we've been told is a challenge of downsizing. Indeed Modern Tiny Living refers to it as a "Social Area."
While it would be remiss of us to overstate its spaciousness too much – it's still a tiny house, after all – the Clover's living room looks a lot more comfortable than those seen in similarly-sized homes like the Tiny Heirloom and Vantage.
The raised living room also offers storage space beneath, and there's quite a bit of storage dotted elsewhere around the home too, including built-in bookcases, and a storage-integrated staircase.
Upstairs lies a standard tiny house-style loft bedroom with limited headroom that sleeps up to two people on a double bed.
The Clover gets power from a standard RV-style hookup and maintains a comfortable temperature with spray foam insulation and a wall heater and air-con unit. It'll set you back US$89,000.
