A tiny house named “Spirit”

Tiny House at Lochness Park for a photo shoot

Spirit has 238 sqft on the main level with 138 sqft in the 2 lofts. There is lots of storage in the smugglers holds, sliding spice rack, 7 -toe kick drawers, cabinet bridge, and stairs with built in storage.  Speaking of the cabinet bridge, it is constructed so that a guest could sleep on them, if needed. This tiny house also has a Airport Ball air exchanger to exhaust the stale house air and moisture to the outside while bringing in fresh air.

    Beautiful house! Do you have any photos of the lofts/upstairs? Also, it appears you may HAVE stairs–do you have photos of that? And of the storage? It’s hard to get a feel for the full view great room, other than awesome reclining built-in…

      I apologize–I just found an earlier blog showing the GORGEOUS stairs!! I love your builds and the range of styles. :-)

    • Jim April 6, 2016 at 6:22 pm #

      I added them a bit ago. Thanks for asking

        Thank you! This is in my top 5 favorite THOW. I’m definitely keeping you in mind for a builder. :-)

    I’m in Shoreview, and have also been basing my designs on the Morrison hOMe. However, to fit more insulation, I was planning to frame with 2×6 instead. It looks like you used 2x4s as the plans specify? Wondering if you had it done early enough to tell how that will measure up. Our winters have been below-par for a few years, but I’d hate to be caught short. Even if I lose some interior space. Thoughts?

    • Jim April 6, 2016 at 6:27 pm #

      This is the 2nd one that we have built. Using closed cell spray foam, we have an R21 at the walls and an R44 at the ceiling. The roof is framed with 2×6 so we eliminated the air space and have solid foam. The spray foam also provides a 20% increase in sheer strength and seals all gaps and cracks in the walls, floors, and roof. Making it a really tight house.
      I would not use 2×6 walls as space is more valuable than that additional energy savings in a tiny house.

    What are the price ranges? And are these tiny homes available in Florida? Thank you!

    • Larry April 7, 2016 at 9:11 am #

      Jim – What is the ballpark price on this “Spirit” model tiny home? This is one of the best designs I have seen yet. Nice Work!

      • Jim April 7, 2016 at 9:23 am #

        Thank you Larry. This one started in the low 70′s and with added features such as water tanks, appliances, Hobbit stove, solar system and more. It is coming in around 84k. The tape is still ticking as this is a cost plus project, which we do from time to time.

    This one looks really big……I mean, it has all the comforts of home and the stairs don’t look like most of the ones in tiny homes…..these look like even older people could use them

    • Jim April 7, 2016 at 9:19 am #

      I added the sqft to the description above. Thanks for asking. It is 8′-6″ x 28′ with a 2′ loft extension at the 2nd loft.

  6. Pam April 8, 2016 at 11:16 pm #

    Love it .great van looks bigger than it seems

    this is one of the most well conceived and constructed Tiny’s I have seen. top 3 for me. $85k is a fair price for the quality and features. congratulations to both the owners and the builders. I live in Mn for 49 years so I understand some of the benefits plus some weather issues to be considered when building there.

  8. Pam Anderson-Livingston April 12, 2016 at 11:16 am #

    Did you build this? How can I contact you? Seriously interested. Please contact me ASAP. I’m about to buy a condo and thinking it’s a mistake because my daughter keeps moving all over the country.
