Quick! How many square feet is too many square feet to be considered a “tiny home?” That, my dear readers, is the question…that I’ve been asking myself since discovering this luxurious 774-square-foot prefab creation on Amazon.
According to one tiny house homeowner at Women’s Health (how cool, right?!), anything under 1,000 square feet is usually acceptable “by less tiny house purists”—a description that I totally fit, so I’m going to run with this.
The not-so-tiny tiny house comes to you from the folks at Q-haus, a European company that specializes in prefab wooden structures. (So you know their houses are going to be good). This one, in particular, comes complete with not one, not two, but three (!!) bedrooms, a bathroom with a sauna or bath, a living room, and an open kitchen and dining area. Open concept living—as in the style oh-so-coveted by every single House Hunter out there—in a tiny home? Mind. Blown.
Plus it’s totally customizable, meaning you can work with the company to alter aspects such as the materials used on the interior and exterior and the layout to have a sauna or jacuzzi.
It’s also designed with Mother Earth in mind. Not only is the tiny house lined (and I mean lined) with windows so you can essentially rely on natural light, but it’s also engineered to consume as little energy as possible.
Picture this: a cup of cocoa in hand, buried under a fleece blanket, staring out onto the snowy slopes from the comfort of your mini-casa. Woah. And if that’s not really your speed (confusing, but okay), then you can just plop this bad boy in your backyard as a humble abode for your guests—after all, it does sleep eight people.
Okay, so, now I’m jealous. This not-so-tiny home is waaaay better than my apartment, which I guess is also considered a tiny home … ?
