One of the main criticisms of tiny houses stems from their limited use as family homes. But the company Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses of Durango, Colorado aims to change that with their newest offering. The so-called Red Mountain 34′ Tiny House is spacious enough for a whole family, yet still retains the main tiny home features and advantages, such as being towable.
The Red Mountain 34′ Tiny House has a total floor space of 410 sq ft (38 sq m) and measures 34 x 8 ft (10.3 x 2.4 m). The ground level of the interior is comprised of a lounge, a dining area with a fold-down table, an office nook, a bathroom and a kitchen. The home also features two loft bedrooms. The master bedroom is accessible via a set of storage stairs, and is spacious enough to fit a king sized bed. The kid’s bedroom is accessible via a bookcase that doubles as a ladder.
The kitchen looks quite spacious and is equipped with a fridge, a propane-powered range cooker, and a sink. The bathroom is large enough to fit a full-size clawfoot bathtub and shower, and also features a regular toilet and a custom-made sink. The house can be hooked up to the grid using a standard RV-style hookup, while heating is provided by a gas stove.
This home was named after a group of three mountain peaks between Silverton and Ouray, Colorado, which are recognized by their red hue. This is part of the reason they used rusty corrugated wainscot, barn wood board and batten, and cedar shakes as cladding for the home, giving it a reddish tone.
The tiny house rests atop a triple-axle trailer and weighs around 14,000 lbs (6,350 kg). It cost $105,000 to build.
