Tiny house gets extra girth for spacious apartment-like interior
Mitchcraft Tiny Homes, the firm behind the pint-sized Nicole's 16 x 8 Tiny Home, recently completed another interesting model that's far more spacious. Named Jen's 34' x 10' Tiny Home, it provides a remarkably roomy interior layout that measures 520 sq ft (48 sq m) and is centered around an impressively large and light-filled kitchen.
As is evident from the model name, the latest Mitchcraft build has a length of 34 ft (10.3 m) and a width of 10 ft (3 m), which is an increase over the standard 8.5 ft (2.5 m) for a towable tiny house and helps lend the home more of an apartment-type feel. It does, however, also mean the owner will need a permit if they want to tow it on a standard US road.
The tiny house is based on a triple-axle trailer and finished in board and batten, with cedar accenting and two large storage areas accessed from outside. Visitors enter through glass doors next to the kitchen area, which has generous glazing, including a pair of solar powered skylights that are controlled with a remote. The kitchen looks well-proportioned for a tiny house and contains an oven with four-burner propane-powered stove, sink, fridge/freezer, a lot of cabinetry, and a useful circular table that doubles as a work desk and has some storage for printers and office tools.
The living room is situated to one side of the kitchen, and contains a sofa, a TV and an electric fireplace, plus a suspended chair and some storage. Over on the opposite side of the kitchen to the living room is the bathroom, which packs in yet more storage space, this time for clothes, plus a nice little soaker tub, a composting toilet, sink, and a combination washing machine and dryer
There are two bedrooms in Jen's 34' x 10' Tiny Home, both of which are reached by a storage-integrated staircase. The main bedroom is situated above the bathroom and has a king-sized bed, some storage, and another skylight. The secondary loft, meanwhile, is above the living room and serves as a room for the owner's child. It has some storage space, yet another skylight and a bed.
Jen's 34' x 10' Tiny Home serves as full-time home, it gets power from a standard RV-style hookup and MitchCraft Tiny Homes says that to build another like it would cost around US$220,000.

Towing economically requires lightweight structures, not masses of woodwork, which is why caravans are built the way they are. _One_ axle's worth of weight, not three, lol.
And it also requires that everything inside is easily stowed away instead of smashing itself to bits on the first bend. Please see the Top Gear episode featuring Jane Hathaway's cottage for details of what will happen inside any of these efforts.
These 'tiny homes' are absurd designer nonsense with zero practical value.
And almost a quarter mil? Are they totally nuts or whut? Hahaha!
