This 273 Sq. Ft. House on Wheels Is Called 'Mini Mansion', and for a Very Good Reason
Have a look at this tiny house on wheels called the Mini Mansion from Tiny House Swoon. When it comes to small houses on wheels there are so many different designs and floor plans that are all unique and interesting in their own way. Tiny home design makes the most of the small spaces by implementing design concepts, furniture and storage in the small space and utilizing every square foot or inch of the space. In a tiny house on wheels the use of multifunctional furniture and storage also comes into play. You can design a stair case that also doubles as storage, with drawers and doors that reveal little hidden cubbies where you can have space to put things away. Furniture often will have storage in it as well, for example, a couch can double as storage space with a lid that lifts up to reveal a cubby space for storage. Storage ottomans work great as well in providing seating as well as storage, and benches or trunks work really well to double as a storage space and a coffee table as well as seating. Some tiny houses even use the space in between the studs of the walls which is sneaky and efficient.
The Mini Mansion was built by Mini Mansions Tiny Home Builder, a tiny house building company operating out of St. Peters, Missouri. Emily and Mark are the owners of the company and have both been in the housing industry for a long time. Mark has been in construction for over 30 years and Emily has been a real estate agent since she was 18. The couple went ahead and built their dream house back in 2005, but they later realized that they were living a life that they had to work really hard for to make ends meet. So they sold their house and found a smaller home to purchase. Emily and Mark are a living testimony to what it is like to go from living pay check to pay check trying to meet an almost $2000 a month house payment, to living a simpler life in a smaller house where they don't have to work to live. The couple would never trade their lifestyle now, and they absolutely love the simple life. They also hope to inspire others to live this simpler life which is why they began their tiny house on wheels business building and designing tiny homes for people to purchase. A the small houses on wheels like this one cost around $40,000 which is a really decent price for a house. The tiny home design is comfortable and cozy, and implements a true feeling of home with all of the modern day luxuries.
They add in an all in one washer and dryer, as well as an electric wall fireplace, a composting toilet and even a full sized refrigerator. The Mini Mansion has hardwood on the main floor with carpet on the two loft floors, making it easy on the knees when you crawl up there. The sleeping loft is even accessed by a normal staircase which makes it so much easier than a ladder which can be hard when you have to get up in the middle of the night. The tiny home design is so bright and cheerful in this tiny house on wheels, and also very modern looking with sleek design and clean lines. The company did a very nice job of making this small space work and flow beautifully.
