Monstrous tiny home is tiny in name only
Durango, Colorado-based Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses has form for building large tiny homes that offer enough space for a small family. The firm's Custom 30 ft House impressed us with its size before it upped the ante with the Rio Grande. With its latest build, the company has repeated the trick and built the largest towable tiny house we've ever seen.
Named after a group of three mountain peaks between Silverton and Ouray, Colorado, that have a distinctive red hue, the Red Mountain 34' Tiny House measures 34 x 8 ft (10.3 x 2.4 m) and is clad in a mix of rusty corrugated wainscot, barn wood board and batten, and cedar shakes.
Access to the home is gained by a drop-down porch and inside there's a total floorspace of 410 sq ft (38 sq m). To put that into perspective, Escape's Vintage XL is on the large side too and sleeps eight people, but has 355 sq ft (32 sq m) of floorspace.
The main space includes an office nook, a lounge, and a dining area with folding dining table. The kitchen looks to have plenty of storage, including two pull-out pantries and closets with chalkboard panels for kids to doodle on. Appliances include a propane-powered range cooker, refrigerator, and sink.
The bathroom lies at the rear of the home and includes a flushing toilet, a custom-made sink, and a full-size clawfoot bathtub and shower.
The Red Mountain 34' Tiny House includes two loft bedrooms. The master bedroom is reached by a storage-integrated staircase and includes a king-size bed, storage space, and a skylight. The secondary loft is the kid's bedroom and is reached by climbing a bookcase that doubles up as a ladder.
The tiny house is based on a triple-axle trailer and weighs in at an estimated 14,000 lb (6,350 kg). The home will be hooked up to a standard RV-style hookup and heated by a gas stove.
Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses says that this was its most time-intensive build and that doing another one the same would come to around US$105,000.
