You'd think that tiny house builders would struggle to think up new ideas on how to make each project different – they're dealing with such a small space after all – but if that's the case, we're not seeing any signs of it yet. Triton, by Wind River Tiny Homes, has a unique interior layout that includes two sleeping areas, a walk-in closet, and a home office.

Measuring 8 x 24 ft (2.4 x 7.62 m), Triton sits on a double-axel trailer and is clad in gray pine siding and charred wood trim, like the firm's Chimera tiny house. The towable home also has a small metal folding porch and steps, and an exterior storage box. Access is gained via a single door.

On entering the home, the most eye-catching area is the relatively large looking kitchen to the right. This includes a fridge, freezer, sink, microwave, and a two-burner hob (no oven). There looks to be plenty of shelving and storage space available, and the decor combines polished metal and wood to great effect.

Above the kitchen is a storage loft/small sleeping area, which is accessed by climbing a aluminum custom ladder. This also doubles-up as storage, with metal hooks for hanging things.

Toward the left of the entrance lies the main living area with a couch. Heating comes from a small and efficient wood-burning stove. Visitors then enter a small home office space with cedar desk and shelving, which can be closed-off with a pocket door. Behind this lies a walk-in closet.

The bathroom is nearby and includes a toilet, shower, and a sink. The main sleeping loft includes a double bed and is reached by climbing a staircase with integrated storage, in addition to a washer/dryer.

Wind River Tiny Homes built the Triton to order for US$57,000, so it's already sold. The owners finished off a few jobs themselves, however, thus saving money. We've no word on whether they decided to install a solar setup or not.

I am waiting to see a tiny house that expands upward so that a normal height person can stand up in the upstairs bedroom. When you park the tiny house you then hit a button and the top goes up another 4 feet. And why not some bump outs to expand the sides when parked. Tiny houses are neat but too confining for my tastes so some real innovation needs to take place and then these things would really go over big.

Well okay. If you like living in something that's a bit bigger than a doghouse then this is for you.

Why are you people so obsessed with camper trailers?

I've seen many tiny houses and they generally make good use of interior space, off grid technology, modern looking features and energy wise materials. But very few look good on the outside. They are so box like and unappealing it hurts! Please involve artistically minded creative architects and engineers to create eye appealing tiny houses.
