Previous tiny houses by Land Ark RV, like the Draper and Drake, have impressed us with their flexibility and spacious interiors. The firm's latest model, dubbed the Quatro, is its smallest to date but retains much of the flexibility of those larger counterparts thanks to a well-designed interior layout that features transformable furniture and multipurpose spaces.

The Quatro is based on a double-axle trailer and measures just 24 ft (7.3 m) in length. To put that into perspective, Land Ark's previous models have measured 30 ft (9.1 m) long, while a lot of North American tiny houses will reach 38 ft (11.5 m) or even longer, nowadays.

The tiny house's overall styling actually looks a lot like the company's Drake model, albeit smaller. It gets power from a standard RV-style hookup. The interior is arranged on one floor and finished in white pine, and it has generous glazing throughout.

Visitors enter the home into the living area/kitchen, which includes a sink, two-burner propane-powered stove, convection microwave, fridge/freezer, custom cabinetry and a dishwasher, which is still a relative luxury in a tiny house. There's also an adjacent dining table and seating, which can double as a work desk. This has integrated storage, a TV mount, and converts into a double bed for guests. The bathroom is nearby and contains a shower, shelving, toilet, and a vanity sink, plus some cabinetry.

Surprisingly perhaps, given its relatively compact size, the Quatro doesn't contain a loft-style bedroom but instead places the sleeping space at the opposite side of the tiny house to the kitchen. This offers lots of headroom for the occupants to stand upright, rather than being required to crawl awkwardly into bed.

The bedroom contains a Murphy style folding bed and so it could conceivably be used as an office space or perhaps an exercise area or something similar when the bed is stowed away. In addition to the bed, there's some storage space installed too.

The Quatro is currently on the market and will set you back US$159,900.

...way too expensive; my wife and I are building a 'trailer home' now (from the factory to site) for ~110,000K .. may as well buy a large RV and drive it where you want to go for less.
