Guess I don't "get" 'tiny homes' - this one is plug-ugly.

Martin: your ugly is my elegant.

I agree that it is elegant, and I do sometimes like the real slick contemporary look. But it doesn't look a whole lot like a house without any roof overhang...I suppose no overhang makes traveling down the interstate a little less stressful for the building.

We all have different taste in home design, the exterior is not my preference either...but i like the inside. I guess the only person who has to like it is the owner, i'm sure he's happy with his home...and that's all that matters.
It certainly tops my home which is a rental i am living in to save money to build a tiny home i'm sure some will find unappealing. The real lesson here is not to judge...who are we to say what his home looks like? He did a fine job.

Overhangs and flat roof are very clever though for tiny houses - they maximize the available space of the small footprint. Brilliant design I say and a nice departure from the "cutesy" tiny homes that are all out there. Great job!

I'd greatly prefer a chrome-exterior airstream style look. What's the point in having something meant to be portable that isn't aerodynamic?
