They say good things come in small packages—and fans of the tiny house movement seem to agree. More and more people are giving up typical homes (and typical mortgages) and choosing the pared-down experience of living in small prefab homes—but that doesn't mean sacrificing luxury or comfort. Here are five examples of prefab homes that pack a ton of upscale amenities into tiny spaces.
Flat Roof Caboose by Wheelhaus
Size: 400 square feet
Starting price: $125,000
Mountain cabin style meets modern design in the Flat Roof Caboose, which promotes indoor-outdoor living with a 175-square-foot loft and room for a sizable upper deck. Amenities include a European-style glass shower, high-end fixtures, timber beams, and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen.
The Goose by Tiny Heirloom
Size: 31, 34, or 37 feet long
Starting price: $84,995
The Goose melds form and function on a gooseneck trailer for mobility. The modern farmhouse-style structure feels airy and is flooded with natural light thanks to plentiful windows and optional skylights. You'll find all the comforts of home, including a master bedroom with a large closet and a full-size bathroom.
The Denali by Utopian Villas
Size: 400 square feet
Starting price: $99,429
Designed to be a "home away from home," according to its website, The Denali is chock full of high-end amenities, from Kohler fixtures and custom-built Merillat cabinets, to a spa shower and a sizable kitchen island. Ascend the upper deck via the spiral staircase or lounge on two lower decks while listening to the indoor-outdoor audio system.
The Rook by Wind River Tiny Homes
Size: 22 feet long
Starting price: $99,500
Fans of industrial design will swoon for The Rook. Designed with a cantilevered loft and a bump-out window seat, it very effectively maximizes its space. Custom woodwork and brickwork—as well as the dark exterior—create a moody vibe. Plus, the home's premium lighting and appliances run on a full off-grid solar system.
The Escher Tiny House by New Frontier Tiny Homes
Starting price: $149,900
Seeking to "eliminate the boundaries between indoors and outside," The Escher Tiny House packs a lot into a tiny space, including a luxury bathroom, a walk-in closet, an office, and a full-height bedroom that can accommodate a king-sized bed. The design is a warm and welcoming take on modern style, and it's perched on a gooseneck for residents on the go.
