2016 Standard Examiner Home & Garden Show

















In case you missed the Standard Examiner Home & Garden Show this past weekend (Feb 26-28) at the Weber County Fairgrounds Golden Spike Arena, here are a few photos of the latest commissioned, custom Tiny Home we built that is ultimately to Ft. Worth, Texas!

We are anxious for the new owners to see (in person) their new home.

A big “Thank You” to Standard Examiner® for the opportunity to present both the MAX™ Acadia and MAX™ Caboose along with our most recent MAX™ Custom Fort Worth project!

We enjoyed the opportunity to meet some new friends and Tiny Home enthusiasts, as well as many who have been curious to experience the feel of Tiny Home designs in person.

Travel Trailer Versus Tiny Home?

Travel Trailer Versus Tiny Home?



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!

Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes’ New Design Concept: The Dirigo™

Big Stew™ The Dirigo™_FINAL_BRANDED_R1

Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes is working with a different design concept that Lead Designer Tom Hudson and President & CEO Angus Stewart “Big Stew” MacInnes call: The Dirigo™ (Dīrigō), which is Latin for “I direct” or “I lead” and is also the state motto of Maine. What do you think of this design? What would you change, if anything?

Stop by our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/MaximusExtremeTinyHomes to see more of this design.

What’s In A Name? Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes’ Tiny Homes on Steroids™

WhatsInAName !!!!!!!!!!!!MaximusExtremeTinyHOMES(2014LogoConcept)Transparent

/ˈtaɪni/ | [tahy-nee]

adjective, ti·ni·er, ti·ni·est.

very small; minute; wee.


little, diminutive, teeny. ◾Source: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/tiny


/ˈstɪərɔɪd, ˈstɛr-/ | [steer-oid, ster-oid]


on steroids, Slang. much larger, stronger, or more extreme than is normal or expected: Yosemite is nature on steroids. He’s so lovable, he’s like santa claus on steroids.

◾Why our moniker: “Tiny Homes on Steroids™?”

Part of the answer lies in the above definition of “Tiny.” The other part of the answer lies in me (the company founder, president, and CEO): Angus Stewart “Big Stew” MacInnes (e.g., coming in at 6’3″ and 285 lbs. I am far from ‘diminutive’ or ‘tiny’). Similarly, Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes designs and builds (you could even say ‘over-builds’) our tiny homes to exceed the quality of construction, craftsmanship, and materials found in many full-size, stick-built homes. Simply put, we unabashedly build high-quality, custom tiny homes that perform in extreme conditions. If, however, you personally associate the term “steroids” with something bad or forbidden (e.g., Professional Athletes Fallen From Grace, etc.), we understand how you could misinterpret our description of our tiny homes. Please, forgive us. But, please, don’t make the mistaken assumption that our tiny homes are ‘diminutive’ or ‘teeny.’ Too, don’t mistake my confidence in our designs as mere ‘bravado.’ That is, I personally invite you to take the Big Stew Challenge™.” Come see/experience our tiny home designs in person. I am confident that you will agree: our designs will look and feel much more comfortable, larger, stronger, and more extreme than you would expect.


Why our business name: “Maximus Extreme Living Solutions™”?

When I founded this company, I set out to make a difference in the tiny home community. I believe in the premise and the tenets of tiny homes, of building with sustainable products and techniques, and of incorporating green building products and techniques. However, as a ‘larger-than-normal’ individual, I am (perhaps more than most) sensitive to the negative connotations of ‘tiny spaces.’ That is, I not only firmly believe that tiny homes do not have to feel or live small (‘diminutive’ or ‘teeny’), I have designed tiny homes that can easily and comfortably accommodate someone of a ‘larger-than-normal’ stature. With all that said, allow me to summarize below:

◾”Maximus” = My first-born son’s name. My commitment to my family, my designs, and the tiny home movement is demonstrated by naming the company for current & future generations, to create a legacy. To perpetuate and support (not supplant) the efforts of tiny living and empower folks to realize their tiny home dreams, especially those who lack either the time or the interest in building their own tiny home.
◾”Extreme” = My tiny home designs incorporate all the best products, components, and technologies (we encourage you to confirm it for yourself via our photos and videos). This translates to our tiny homes being built (arguably ‘over-built’ by some folks’ standards) to last as long, if not longer, than most full-size, stick-built homes. Our tiny homes not only withstand the test of time (e.g., 40 & 50-year-roofing systems), they also withstand extreme climates (keeping you safe and comfortable even in temperatures ranging from -50 °F to +150 °F).
◾”Living Solutions” = If we told you that we could help you live affordably, comfortably, and safely in a smaller, mobile footprint to allow you the flexibility of relocating your home (e.g., to follow your career, to chase another opportunity of a lifetime, or to follow the seasons, etc.) without sacrificing craftsmanship, quality, or performance wouldn’t you agree that we are offering a compelling solution?

Why our business challenge: “Let’s Build Something [TINY] Together™”?

We at Maximus Extreme™ Tiny Homes do not dictate what ‘floorplan’ or what ‘interior’ choice(s) are available to you. Rather, we partner with you to design and build your dream tiny home. We take your design, create engineered plans, and custom-build your tiny home. We tell our customers: “You are only limited by your imagination, your budget, and the laws of physics.”
