One of our favorite luxury tiny houses, Timbercraft Tiny Homes' Denali, has been made bigger and quite possibly better with the release of the Denali XL. The home now has a total floorspace of roughly 400 sq ft (37 sq m), and offers a very roomy interior for a tiny house, while retaining the same high quality finish.

The Denali XL increases the length of the original Denali from 37 ft (11.2 m) to 42 ft (12.8 m)-long, so you wouldn't want to tow this thing too often – indeed, it's reasonable to wonder how much bigger supersized tiny houses can go before they can no longer be named tiny houses anymore. Since park homes or mobile homes don't really have the same buzz, the answer is probably "a lot."

This larger model retains the attractive cottage-like styling of the smaller one, with board and batten siding, seam metal roof, and two doors. The interior is finished in shiplap walls, stained wood ceilings, and hardwood floors.

Entering via the back door, visitors find a spacious living room. This joins onto a similarly-proportioned kitchen with full-size fridge/freezer, propane-powered four-burner oven, farmhouse-style sink, custom cabinetry, and two breakfast bars. There's also a trash compactor and a dishwasher.

Further into the home lies the bathroom, which is accessed by a sliding door. It includes a steam shower, incinerating toilet (which works how you'd expect and burns your waste, leaving ash), shelving, a vanity unit, and a washer/dryer integrated into the wall.

Surprisingly perhaps, given its size, there's just one bedroom in the Denali XL, but it's a big one. It's reached by climbing storage-integrated stairs into the gooseneck (raised) area of the home and has room to stand up in – still a rarity in a tiny house. It fits a king-sized bed, that lifts up to reveal more storage, and a large walk-in closet.

The Denali XL gets power from a standard RV-style hookup. The home is heated and cooled with two mini-split air-con systems, as well as a ceiling fan. Skylights increase the amount of natural daylight in the house and open with a push of a button.

We've no word on the price for this one but those interested can get in touch with the firm.
