Portland, Oregon-based luxury tiny house firm Tiny Heirloom has shared another of its recently-completed builds with us. The Rocky Mountain Tiny Home serves as an off-grid vacation home for a family of four in rural Colorado. It features a twin storage staircase and generous kitchen, while a home office allows the owners to get some work done, too.

The Rocky Mountain Tiny Home (not to be confused with the firm of the same name) is based on a triple-axle 28 ft (8.5 m)-long trailer, but overhanging lofts bring its total length to 32 ft (9.7 m). Its exterior is clad in wood with metal detailing and features an overall contemporary look.

Access is gained by a sliding glass door. Inside, there's a bathroom with shower and (non-composting) toilet, while a relatively large home office lies to the left and has its own sliding door for privacy.

A spacious kitchen area is on the right. This includes appliances like a range cooker, mini-dishwasher and fridge, plus a neat copper sink. It also features a skylight that's operated with a wall-mounted touchscreen display. At the far end of the home is a lounge area that includes a dining table on wheels.

A large double storage staircase leads to two sleeping lofts. One is for the kids and has been split by a bookcase to fit two beds. The other, the master sleeping loft, seems relatively spacious, for a tiny house bedroom. Both are topped by operable skylights.

The Rocky Mountain Tiny Home is powered by a roof-based solar panel array connected to an inverter and batteries. Heating and cooling are provided by both a propane-powered heater and mini-split, while hot water comes from a tankless gas hot water heater. The home features LED lighting throughout.

Tiny Heirloom told us that the price for this build came in at around US$125,000. The owner has made a video tour of the home, which you can watch on his YouTube channel.

How are these different from a big RV trailer?
Robert Walther
Would these structures be cheaper to build without the wheels and chassis for 'mobile' capacity?

Rocky Mountain Tiny House is actually quite the company! I'm proud to say they are based out of Colorado, like us! Colorado really is at the front of the tiny house movement that's spreading across the nation, unfortunately not enough people know about tiny houses or the cool things that come with a lot of them (like composting toilets) and are quick to reject them. Information is power! My lady and I built a tiny house and we are proud to say we're donating it. It's been quite the journey and I encourage people who are into tiny houses (or DIY) to check us out!: https://youtu.be/gbhIKwr7rGM

folks these tiny houses are called travel trailers

Placing them on trailers allows the builder to skirt quite a few building codes. If the same structure was built as a permanent home it would cost a lot more to build.

Work, rest and play.....so that would make it a 'Snickers' house ?

At $125k it's hardly attractive, and not really affordable. The cost per square foot appears to be way more than conventional construction. At $20-40k this tiny home is super attractive. Personally, I would like to see their materials costs. Anyone think this is a deal on wheels? I love the tiny house movement, just not the pricing I see quoted.
