With their focus on downsizing, tiny houses are often lacking in home comforts, but Tiny House Lumbec's recently-completed dwelling proves that doesn't always have to be the case. The TH2 tiny house is a 24 ft (7.3 m)-long towable home that includes a relatively large kitchen and lounge area, a wood-burning stove, and even a small bathtub.

Though new to the tiny house scene, Québec-based Tiny House Lumbec's parent company Lumbec has been building sheds and gazebos since 1978 so has plenty of relevant experience. The TH2 (presumably standing for Tiny House 2, as the firm has produced one previous tiny house), is clad in white pine, stained western red cedar, and steel, and features a sloping roof. Insulation comes in the form of rigid foam insulation.

The interior of the tiny house looks finished to a high quality. The lounge area features a couch, folding dining table, wall-mounted television, and a small wood-burning stove. And there's plenty of storage space dotted around the home. The kitchen boasts a full-size refrigerator and freezer, induction stove, and microwave.

In addition to the wood-burner, heat is also available via a 1,500 W electric heater and the tiny home also boasts a greywater recycling system.

Moving to the rear of the tiny house, TH2's bathroom includes a composting toilet and a rare tiny house luxury: a 60 in (1.5 m)-long bathtub with shower. Stairs with integrated storage lead up to a loft wth a queen-sized bed and yet more storage space.

We've no word on how much the TH2 cost to build, but the firm invites those interested in pricing up a tiny house to get in touch.

It's just another trailer. We've used trailers for as long as I can remember.

Their web site shows the cost for the finished TH2 is $45,000 (16-foot model) or $65,000 (24-foot model) and a cost of $25,000 or $35,000 respectively for "the shell" that you could fit and finish on your own.
It seems safe to assume that those are Canadian dollars.

Oops, they put the shower head, fill spout, and on/off tap on the wrong end of the tub. All of that should be on the flat end where the overflow is (the shiny round cover on the upper left end of the tub) so you can lean back on the sloped end when having a bath.
