MAX™ The Craftsman™
A Custom-Designed, Family-Friendly Tiny House on Wheels (THOW)
MAX™ The Craftsman™
*It’s now for sale!
Adam and Gabrielle wanted a tiny house on wheels (THOW) in which to raise their growing family. Since the couple was expecting, this drove the design. The design required a space that’s not just “kid-proofed” but instead a “kid-purposed” space. Gabrielle’s rapidly-approaching end date of her pregnancy of their second child accelerated the build schedule. Tiny House Nation’s John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin designed a space that really worked for everybody!
The End Result?
The MAX™ The Craftsman™ appeared in September 2016 on Season 3, Episode 18, of Tiny House Nation (“200 Sq. Ft. Family-Friendly House”).
After several months of living in this beautiful tiny house and loving every minute of it, work/school pressures and zoning issues arose. The couple looks to relocate closer to the city and into a more conventional living arrangement. After considering the option of placing their tiny house in storage indefinitely, they decided to sell it. Because the couple designed this THOW with a family (two young children) in mind, it is very functional. It really could work for just about anyone!
This is a one-of-a-kind, beautiful home. MAX™ Tiny Homes built this design on an Iron Eagle® 24′ trailer with tandem 7,000 lb rated axles (14,000 total). This THOW design features two spacious dormer lofts, which cantilever out an additional three feet on either end of the house, and a box window on the kitchen end of the home adds some tasteful architectural flair. The facade consists of durable faux-cedar shake shingle and wooden accents, and the home features a beautiful custom knotty-alder craftsman-style door with a walnut stain.
The interior feels incredibly spacious for a tiny house. That spacious feeling is created by a tall, gabled ceiling in the center of the home. Too, light pours in through 20 double-paned, insulating windows. The house is well-insulated, since the walls made of structurally-insulated panels (SIPs) and bat insulation in both the floor and the ceiling. Electric radiant heating elements in the floor provide heat in the winter. Two small air-conditioning units in the lofts easily keep the house cool, even in 100-degree heat. An EcoTemp® on-demand, propane-fired water heater ensurs endless hot water!
The interior features a ton of upgrades and premium design elements, including a porcelain farm sink in the kitchen, stainless-steel appliances (refrigerator/freezer, propane-fired oven/range, and dishwasher all included), quartz counter tops, mechanized oak ladder access to the master loft, butcher-block folding table/desk, space for an LG® washer/dryer combo, custom butcher-block and oak built in stairs/bookcase/storage piece, tiled shower with Moen® detachable magnetic shower head, Separett® composting toilet (also plumbed for traditional toilet if desired), and a kid’s sink and work station in the smaller loft, etc.
Adam and Gabrielle’s tiny house appeared on Tiny House Nation. Life happens. Because of a change in life circumstances and zoning issues, the couple is forced to relocate. This custom, family-friendly THOW is in Park City, Utah. It is breathtaking. The best part? It is offered for sale by the owners, and it could be yours! How’s that?
