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.

Better slums, ghettoes, and trailer parks. These tiny houses reminds me of something you would have in a trailer park, and in fact they are smaller than the ones you used to have in a "traditional" trailer park. Ghettos was a place that Eastern Europeans used to live in before the end of WWII, like the Warsaw Ghetto, and the slums were places that the Irish used to live in before the end of the Civil War; like the Irish slums of New York in East Houston. Trailer Parks were the result of the mass migration of Mid-westerners forced to migrate during the Dust Bowl/Depression era; a place where poor Whites lived in (aka; White Trash). So these tiny houses are a reinvention of the traditional Trailer housing for the future poor people of the world. These things look great, but what will they look like after 5 years worth of use? The homes of the rich are getting bigger; the homes of the poor are getting smaller. For you and me; the world is a (ghetto) trailer park.

I just don't get it how these things are still a "thing". Outside of an art gallery where it would be a novelty, anyone that gives at least 2 minutes of thought to the "tiny home movement", would conclude that it is absolutely absurd to build or buy something like this. Take a look at what you can buy for 80K in an RV. Purpose built for road travel, an industry that has been around for decades

I think that is really nice. I would not mind living in that.
