As tiny mobile homes grow in popularity their design gets more and more imaginative too. Architects Kelly Davis and Dan George Dobrowolski have recently completed one such tiny home, which they called the Escape Traveler. This home is basically an RV, which means that it is exempt from standard building codes and zoning bylaws.
The Escape Traveler weighs between 10,000 and 12,000 pounds, and rests on a 8′ 6″ wide trailer, which can be attached to a car, meaning it can easily be towed to just about anywhere. The home features a spacious living area with a fireplace and a sofa that can be turned into a bed. The home also features three lofts, which separate the lower level of the tiny home into three areas, namely the bathroom, living room, and a kitchen/dining area. The bedrooms are located in the lofts. According to the specifications, the home can actually accommodate up to six people.
The kitchen is full sized with ample counter space and a two-burner induction stovetop. The bathroom is also quite spacious for a tiny home, and features a shower, sink and toilet. There is a large dining table that can sit six, and can also be used as a worktable. The home features an on-demand heater, and can even be fitted with a washer and dryer. The home also has large windows that let in plenty of natural light, and offers ample storage, is completely climate controlled, and boasts of minimal power consumption.
The exterior is clad in cedar siding, while recycled maple planks were used on the interior. The roof is metal, and the home was insulated using foam insulation.
The price is pretty steep though; the basic version costs $65,400, while a fully equipped version can be purchased for $82,400. The latter includes a lot though, such as a bathroom with a full size tub, a kitchen with full sized appliances, and more.
