If I am asked to choose between a regular-size dwelling and a tiny house on wheels, I’d choose the latter nine out of ten times. These mobile habitats not only offer a cozy interior but also allow you to embrace a sustainable and minimalist lifestyle. The Horton tiny house is one such micro-dwelling that would have you in awe of its design and bring you closer to downsized living.
Designed by Build Tiny, the compact dwelling measures just above 26 feet in length and is finished in a steel frame with vinyl cladding. Just like other models by the builder, Horton features double-glazed aluminum windows allowing light to enter inside. It has lightweight poplar core plywood interior linings for adding aesthetics to the space.
Talking of the interior, Horton tiny house features a flexible layout with a living room, kitchen, and bathroom on the ground floor while two bedrooms are placed in the loft section. The living room is equipped with a sofa and a round center table. Adjacent is a built-in convertible couch with storage beneath that can accommodate more people in case you plan a small get-together.
Next is the Horton’s kitchen which is highly functional, courtesy of a movable draw unit that extends to create a benchtop area. It offers plenty of storage for nitty-gritty essentials. Not to mention, the sink, full-size appliances, and recessed shelving make the ordinary kitchen look highly functional. A space-saving slider door leads to the bathroom of the tiny home which includes a toilet, shower, and sink.
The primary loft can be accessed via storage-integrated stairs (with lift-up treads, three drawers, a cupboard, and a pull-out pantry) while the other can be reached through a removable ladder. I like both lofts, with one featuring a queen-size bed, cubby storage, and wardrobe, while the other loft features a bed and built-in storage.
The New-Zealand based manufacturer designed the tiny house for a client who had a young child and wanted Build Tiny to specifically design the loft for the kid. Hence, the company added a full-height custom-slatted pine barrier to separate it from the main floor to offer some sense of security and privacy.
