Since we’ve been building custom tiny dream homes since 2012, MAX™ Tiny Homes has learned a thing or two. We’ve learned that Kitchen—along with bathrooms—are probably the two most diverse areas that are found within tiny homes (at least that has been our experience).

When you consider that what customers need and want differ, we have designed custom bathrooms as varied as our clients’ needs and wants.

Because we’re proud of our ability to creatively accommodate just about everyone’s unique needs, we share just a few photos of some custom tiny dream home bathrooms that we have designed and built over the years.

When we say it’s big, we mean that MAX™ – The Reagan™ measures approximately 31′ in length and is built on a custom fifth wheel trailer, of which 7′ is the gooseneck.

In addition to the sheer size, we are proud of the design elements. We are also very proud of the covered, fenced-in porch. This provides a protected area for our clients Josh and Nicole and their puppies to enjoy an outdoor living area, too.

Autistic Tiny Home™ Outtakes

Autistic Tiny Home Outtakes

Sarah and I became fast friends during the construction of her “Autistic Tiny Home.”

Sarah truly is a special young lady with a huge heart and a great sense of humor. As some of these great photo outtakes reveal, Sarah was always goofin’ on me!

Too, you can see in these pics that Sarah is pretty excited about getting her set of keys, that she absolutely loves her Mama, and that she likes to ham it up when she in I are in the same picture frame!

Personally, I think that her upcoming documentary will be something special! #Staytuned #SarahsAutisticTinyHome

Autistic Tiny Home Outtakes

We at MAX™ Tiny Homes proudly reveal a few outtakes and behind-the-scenes moments as Team MAX™ delivered Sarah’s custom tiny home.

Back Story

Sarah is a 19-year-old woman who has autism. This is an exciting time for Sarah. This tiny home represents a big step for Sarah and her quest to have some autonomy as a young woman. Sarah’s tiny home will allow her to literally have her own home and yet still be in close proximity to her family!

Help Sarah Spread The Word About Her Awareness Project

Because this sensory tiny home design represents a newfound freedom and independence for Sarah, we hope you will all support Sarah’s efforts to both encourage others with autism. Won’t you help *spread the word* about Sarah’s project?

We’re all excited and very proud. Since you’ve been asking to see more of what we’ve designed and built just for Sarah, this ‘sneak peek’ is just another installment in our “Pre-Reveal.” #StayTuned

Team MAX™ doesn’t want to spoil the final reveal to Sarah on Saturday, October 29, 2016. With that said, we share some of the custom details of Sarah’s “Autistic” Tiny Home. The 4-in-1 bathroom fixture (a Home NetWerks® Bluetooth® Stereo Speaker Bath Fan with LED Light) is really neat! Check out this YouTube® video at https://youtu.be/AbZ0pw8–Ic.

Back Story

Sarah is a 19-year-old young woman who has autism. This is an exciting time for Sarah, because we are less than a month away from delivering her tiny home to her. This tiny home represents a big step for Sarah and her quest to have some autonomy as a young woman. Sarah’s tiny home will allow her to literally have her own home and yet still be in close proximity to her family!

Progress on Sarah’s Tiny Home

Since our last update, Sarah came to our shop to personally see the progress on her tiny home. Too, she picked her colors and added her personal touch to her front door!

Sarah’s Status

The smile on Sarah’s face, her mom’s face, and her teacher’s face pretty much says it all: She’s really excited as we approach the home stretch. We at MAX™ Tiny Homes are equally as excited to be able to present Sarah’s tiny home to her! #StayTuned

Sarah’s Chosen Colors

One of the highlights for Team MAX™ was introducing Sarah’s chosen colors to her tiny home. Sarah’s color palette is really coming together, and she seems so very happy, doesn’t she?

Sarah’s Status

I spoke with Sarah’s mom the other day, and she mentioned that Sarah has been so excited seeing the “colors” that she wanted actually being applied to her home! Sarah’s mom said, “She is chomping at the bit!” We at MAX™ Tiny Homes are equally as excited to be able to present Sarah’s tiny home to her!

Sarah’s Chosen Colors

One of the highlights for Team MAX™ was introducing color to the home. Sarah let us know in no uncertain terms that she is a HUGE fan of the color pink! So pink it is! Sarah’s tiny home will feature hot pink kitchen cabinets, pink walls, and we have a few more pink surprises, too!

Just wait for the reveal! You will love Sarah’s custom steel pergola, which should really look cool over the entry.

The Next Project

Team MAX™ To Build Sarah’s Tiny Home

The Next Project

Team MAX™ is super pumped about our next project! We will build a tiny home for a young lady by the name of Sarah. Sarah has autism, and she is a huge fan of the tiny home movement.

Sarah, in cooperation with her mom and the rest of her family, made the decision that she needs her own space. So, after having kept in contact with Sarah, her mom, grandmother, and high school teacher over the past year, Sarah decided, along with the blessing of her mother and the financial help from her grandparents, to pull the trigger on a purchase of her own tiny home!

Soon, Sarah will have her own tiny home; Sarah will live on her mom and dad’s property!

Here at Team MAX™, we are proud that Sarah chose us to work with her on her project. We will keep all of our friends and supporters updated on the progress of Sarah’s tiny home.

As a side note, a documentary about Sarah and the progress toward realizing her dream of owning her own tiny home is in the works! #StayTuned

Sarah has another goal: to share the tiny home build process with others who have autism. Too, Sarah, wants to help others with autism get into tiny homes of their own!

We here at MAX™ tiny homes wish Sarah nothing but success!

We are also super excited to have Damon Deschamp of Trailer Made Trailers on board as not only a supporter of Sarah’s dream, but they are a contributor, too! Thanks, Damon!

How can that be possible, you ask? Trust me, we’re as amazed and surprised as you are!

It’s been a busy (and productive) year at Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes. And we’ve been Blessed beyond measure.

We thank our clients (whom we consider our Friends), and we thank each of you (our faithful stalkers) for your continued interest and support.

If you have ever wanted to walk through a Tiny House, but you have never had the opportunity to do so, then take a moment and check out the following link: It will blow you away!

If you want to see what it looks like standing in the kitchen of our Victorian Prepper™, then you can do so. If you want to take a look and see (up close) what the ceiling tiles look like, you can do that, too!

You can even stand in the shower and get a feel for what living in a tiny home is really like.

This virtual walk-through is the closest thing, next to actually being there!

As far as I know, we are the only company that has put this technology to use. This is our first crack at it, and I would love any feedback that any of you would be willing to offer.

Also, please feel free to share the virtual tour with your friends; we’d love to hear their opinions as well.

The best way I can think to describe this (our first virtual tour), is a combination of Google® Earth™ meets Gulliver’s Travels!

Our service provider for this new virtual tour technology is a local company called Home Scans, and we are looking forward to utilizing their services!

Thanks for checking this out, and I hope that you enjoy the experience!

Your Tiny Dream Home Journey

If you’re ready to make your Tiny Dream Home a reality, give us a call at Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes: (801) 301-9388

At Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes, our custom tiny dream homes are built on an eight-by-twenty-foot (8′ x 20′) movable steel platform [*Custom/Longer trailer lengths like the 340 sq ft, triple-axle Steampunk Adventure Home], which equates to a smaller main floor living area; however, a small space does not have to “live” small.

Our custom designs utilize the “shared-space” concept of architecture. Every space has a multiple function, which allows for each space’s functionality to be maximized and to flow seamlessly from one area to another.

Our goal is to provide our clients with a living experience that is a small version of home, thus allowing our clients to take the essence of home with them, no matter where they go!

Too, our custom designs accommodate standard size furniture pieces, and some have built-in pieces depending on the needs, preference, and requirements of our clients.

Tiny House Nation Adds Greg Dewey

Tiny House Nation Adds Greg Dewey

We appreciate all Greg has done for Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes

Best Wishes & Good Luck, Greg!

If you haven’t already heard/read the news, Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes’ Master Carpenter Greg Dewey will be joining Tiny House Nation. Greg’s been a Blessing to us here at Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes. Greg’s time and talents have touched just about every aspect of each and every one of our designs.

Our MAX™ clients have benefit of seeing Greg’s talents on a national scale via Tiny House Nation, and they can now  proudly claim, “Greg helped make my Tiny Home Dream a reality!

Greg is about the best brother-in-law anyone could ask for; I had the best of all worlds, because Greg’s been part of the MacInnes family as well as a great partner at Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes, too!

Aside from Greg Dewey being our own amazing, master carpenter and my brother-in-law, we have been fortunate to have Greg on staff since day one, and we are really Blessed to have such a talented craftsman on our team. Recently, Greg started his own company to showcase his design and carpentry skills. Greg’s making himself available for custom work and design (and his business is booming)!

We at Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes feel fortunate to be able to offer “Made by Dewey” products to our customers! I just wanted to give some public recognition to Greg and tell him thanks for all that he does at/for our company!

By the way, you should heck out the cool Adirondack chairs, each made from a single shipping pallet. Greg has also made a bed frame for his daughter (my niece) as a wedding present. This amazing gift is also made from recycled pallets! Check out all the photos on Greg’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MadeByDewey/photos_stream

At Maximus Extreme Living Solutions™, our custom tiny dream homes are built on an eight by twenty foot (8′ x 20′) movable steel platform [*Custom/Longer trailer lengths are possible], which equates to a smaller main floor living area; however, a small space does not have to “live” small.

Our custom designs utilize the “shared-space” concept of architecture. Every space has a multiple function, which allows for each space’s functionality to be maximized and to flow seamlessly from one area to another.

Our goal is to provide our clients with a living experience that is a small version of home, thus allowing our clients to take the “essence of home” with them, no matter where they go!

Too, our designs accommodate standard size furniture pieces, and some have built-in pieces depending on the preference of our clients.

Travel Trailer Versus Tiny Home?

Travel Trailer Versus Tiny Home?

NoComparisonReally(FNL1)

 

Q: What Are The Differences Between A Travel Trailer Versus A Tiny Home?

A: Sometimes, the answer is in the question. In this case, there’s really no comparison….

The differences…from A-Z:

  • Attitude (What do you want your Dream Tiny Home to say about you?)
  • Bed configurations (MAX™ Dream Tiny Homes offer many creative solutions, depending upon your needs and requirements!)
  • Creature Comforts (MAX™ Dream Tiny Homes can include as many or as few as you like!)
  • Design (We can accommodate your Dream Tiny Home, limiting you to only your imagination, budget, and the laws of physics!) 
  • Energy-Efficient (We incorporate the latest commercial & residential best construction practices & products!)
  • Fully Customizable (MAX™ Dream Tiny Homes accommodate your needs, requirements, and specifications!)
  • Green. Your MAX™ Dream Tiny Home can be designed to incorporate many Green building products and LEED components!
  • HVAC? Yes, we can heat and cool your Dream Tiny Home very efficiently!
  • Interested in financing? MAX  Financing is available to most! See: http://maximusextreme.com/shop-max/max-financing-a-new-option/ 
  • Just-in-time inventory. Your MAX™ Dream Tiny Home is not ‘mass-produced.’ Each is custom-crafted for our clients.
  • Kitchen options? Your MAX™ Dream Tiny Home could look like the one featured on FYI Television Network’s “Tiny House Nation” See: http://www.fyi.tv/shows/tiny-house-nation/videos/340-sq-ft-steampunk-adventure-home 
  • Longevity? A MAX™  Dream Tiny Home is built to last. You receive manufacturer’s warranties on Roofing and other components that equal (or surpass) most traditional, stick-built, brick-and-mortar  homes!
  • Made in the USA: That’s a huge MAX Difference! We carefully source all components for Buy-American Act compliance!
  • Never a cold shower. Your MAX™ Dream Tiny Home can be outfitted with a propane-fired, on-demand hot water system!
  • Options: Off-Grid, Completely Grid-Tied, Somewhere In-Between (it’s always your choice); What’s your preference?
  • Performance? MAX™ insulation keeps you comfortable from -50 ºF to +150 ºF!
  • Quality. At Maximus Extreme™ quality in craftsmanship is built-in; it’s never an “option”…never!
  • R-values. MAX™ Dream Tiny Homes incorporate state-of-the-art Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) for huge R-value ratings! 
  • Solid, Stick-Built Construction (just like a brick-and-mortar home); A MAX™ Dream Tiny Home is not a thin-skinned travel trailer!
  • Toilet options (composting toilet, flush-toilet, incinerating toilet; there are many options); Let’s talk about your preferences!
  • Uber-Awesome Utility Options (grid-tied, off-grid, somewhere in-between? ) The choice is yours!
  • Vacation? Depending where you park your MAX™ Dream Tiny Home, you can turn a vacation into a stay-cation!
  • Where Next? Take your Dream Tiny Home with you; Home will be where you park it, literally!
  • X-tra Beefy Suspension. Your MAX™ Dream Tiny Home is built on a custom-manufactured movable steel platform with superior-rated axle-strength, suspension components, and tire and wheel combinations providing for a safe, secure foundation.
  • Your look, your style, your choices. Why would you simply accept what rolls off the assembly line?
  • Zebra pattern? Why not? It’s possible to wrap your Dream Tiny Home with a unique finish…favorite football team, NASCAR, even a Zebra pattern!

MAX™ Q&A: A question about noise…

Q&A

Q: How do you ‘sound-proof’ a Tiny Home? 

At MAX™ Tiny Homes, we receive many interesting comments and questions. Most folks ask questions “off-line.” Perhaps they are shy? Perhaps they don’t want to ask a silly question? (BTW, we subscribe to the philosophy that there’s no such thing as a ‘silly’ question, except the one that is never asked.) Anyway, sometimes we feel it important to ‘share’ some of these questions (and our answers) with our Tiny Home fans/followers. This is one of those times.

Although we don’t have all the facts; that is, we don’t know ALL the reasons behind this inquiry (e.g., is this request for ‘noise control’ perhaps based on a need for a quiet backyard-based “shedquarters” or remote/satellite/mobile business office; for a backyard/remote/mobile recording studio; or for a true get-a-way to meditate, perhaps for medical reasons like migraines or simply to de-stress?), we have to start somewhere with making assumptions in order to provide any type of meaningful answer. 

the-noise-pollution-ecosystem-how-noise-pollution-effects-the-environment-infographic_5175a25bad9b3

Our assumption(s): Let’s assume (if nothing else for ease of argument’s sake) that the conceptualized Tiny Home will be (mainly) situated in a normal, residential area. Therefore, the ‘normal’ residential sound levels of some occasional vehicle traffic, some kids playing nearby, and some occasional yard maintenance (e.g., lawnmowers, leaf blowers, etc.) will occur, and you want an exceptionally quiet Tiny Home (for relaxation, rest, productivity, etc.).

 

RAY-CORE_SIP_Panel RAY-CORE_SIP_Thicknesses

Q: Do Structural Insulated Panels or SIPs block sound transmission?

A: Yes and No. The sound resistance of a SIP wall depends on the thickness of the gypsum drywall applied, the exterior finish applied, and the thickness of the insulating foam core that is used. SIPs are especially effective at blocking high frequency noise and most homeowners notice the quiet comfort of a SIP home. However, low frequency sounds are not as effectively stopped by a SIP building envelope.

So here’s one approach: Your Tiny Home design could incorporate 6-1/2 inch Structural Insulated Panel (or SIP) walls, with a layer of ½” or 5/8” Quiet-Rock™ or similar noise-reducing gypsum board designed where high Sound Transmission Coefficient (STC) ratings and acoustic management is needed on the walls, using Green Glue® (*Note: One sheet of 5/8” Quiet-Rock™—or equivalent—has the sound deadening quality of something like 10 sheets of standard drywall. Green Glue® is rubbery, thus lends itself to dampening sound, too). You might even consider using Quiet-Rock™—or equivalent—and Green Glue® on the ceiling, too, to further reduce sound penetration. GGDist

The exterior finish: Your Tiny Home design could also incorporate James Hardie® Fiber Cement Building Products (either HardiePlank® Lap Siding, HardieShingle® Siding, or HardiePanel® Vertical Siding).

jh-logo2x

James Hardie® Fiber Cement Building Products have earned the seal of approval from customers, building experts, and industry publications…even the Good Housekeeping® Seal. 

good-housekeeping-v2

Although traditionally more expensive (and heavier) than typical exterior finishes (e.g., vinyl, wood, or OSB), James Hardie® Building Products offer superior results in many areas (e.g., rot resistance, durability, weather resistance, etc.)(See: James Hardie® Website

), the James Hardie® Fiber Cement would provide a dense outer layer, which would help abate sound transmission, too.

The windows: Another issue that must be dealt with is the choice of windows for your Tiny Home. Windows transmit quite a bit of sound. Triple-pane windows, or windows specifically made to suppress noise, may be needed, too.

The bottom line? We at MAX™ Tiny Homes love a good challenge. We share with all of our potential customers that they are limited only by their imagination, their budget, and the laws of physics!
