Tiny homes continue to be such an attraction, such a dream for people, many of whom lined up at Toronto’s National Home Show to see this new offering from the Tiny House Construction Company. It’s an interesting and thoughtful design from this new Canadian company.

There are all kinds of limitations on designs of tiny houses built on trailers. They cannot be more than 8′-6″ wide, they have to fit under bridges, and it’s better if they are under 10,000 pounds so that they can be towed legally by a pickup truck with a conventional drivers licence. If you are building for Canada you need good insulation and windows.

When you have those kinds of limitations, you have to figure out the priorities; this particular design seems to prioritize cooking, with the kitchen taking up more than half the livable space. Other designers might have made the kitchen much smaller and the seating area larger.

Beyond the kitchen is a very comfortable bathroom with shower, low volume toilet and sink.

In fact it seems odd to have a kitchen bigger than I have seen in many apartments (Bigger than food writer Mark Bittman’s New York kitchen!) and such a dinky fold-down dining room table. But no doubt these are all things that can be changed as these are built to order, and this is the shortest model. They have also created three tiers of pricing (and three lengths, 16′, 20′ and 24′) so you can order it without anything inside and finish it yourself.
