The firm Rocky Mountain Tiny House of Colorado has earned its reputation of creating unique and well-designed tiny homes, and their latest creation is no exception. The so-called Rusted Mountain Roost is a cozy and innovative tiny home, which features a cool rust-colored façade. It is also towable.
The Rusted Mountain Roost measures 312 sq ft (28.9 sq m). One of the best features is that the bedroom has so much headroom that most people can actually stand up in it. The bedroom is located on one end of the home and is accessible via a storage stair. It is separated from the rest of the home by a repurposed barn door, which hangs on Wild West saloon-style hinges.
The home also features a lounge area, which is fitted with a sofa and a TV that’s mounted on the wall to save space. Next to it, is the kitchen and dining area, which features a folding table, a range cooker, sink, and fridge, as well as a washer/dryer, and lots of storage space. The bathroom is quite spacious too and is fitted with a shower, toilet, and sink. There is also a loft, which is accessible via a ladder, and can be used as a guest bedroom or for storage.
The tiny home needs to be hooked up via a standard RV-style hookup to get power. The framing is made from structural insulated panels (SIPs), and it is cooled and heated using a ductless mini split system and a roof fan. It weighs 13,200 lb (5,987 kg), and rests on a 24 ft (7.3 m) trailer, which is elongated with a 7 ft (2.1 m) gooseneck. The Rusted Mountain Roost costs $84,000.
