Once again my love of tiny housing has been tweaked. I’m endlessly intrigued by the clever use of space, practical layouts and efficient lifestyle they encourage.
The “Wedge” design features an angled roof, which starts low above the bedroom and builds to 17 feet in the living room. Trapezoidal windows grow similarly from back to front, offering natural light while maintaining privacy. The front of the cabin is almost entirely glass. A large sliding glass door opens to a private deck.
Each cabin has one bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen/living room and a private deck. The ceilings and exterior are covered with reclaimed Wyoming snow fencing.
The bedrooms are sized to fit a king size bed with two side tables and linen sconces. A set of four drawers and an under-counter hanging closet support a butcher-block counter top, which also serves as a desk. A 42-inch Internet accessible HD flat screen television is mounted above the desk. Track lighting is available for properly lighting art work.
The kitchen/living room was designed to offer both comfort and functionality. The mini-kitchen features a two-burner cook top, an under counter refrigerator, a microwave, a dishwasher, a sink, concrete countertops and modern rustic cabinetry. A large bomber leather sofa, two cowhide ottomans, two barn wood side tables, custom made wrought iron lamps and railroad cart coffee tables make up living room furnishings. A mini-high efficiency gas burning fireplace warms the room. Above the fireplace is another 42 inch HD flat-screen television.
The bathrooms are small, but functional. Heavy duty glass showers, Kohler toilets and custom vanities with concrete countertops/sinks and quartzite floors combine to produce very well appointed facilities.
So if you are looking for a modern, ready made small home, this may be one to add to your list. Learn more by visiting the WheelHaus website http://www.wheelhaus.com/. Jamie just gave me the pricing for the Wedge, it is $75,000.
