JAPANESE-INSPIRED TINY HOME THAT CAN FIT 8 PEOPLE
YOU MAY WANT TO RETHINK HOW YOU DEFINE TINY
Tiny homes usually come with a disclaimer that it can only fit one or two people. But this is not the case with this loft-style Japanese-inspired trailer cabin called the Escape One XL. The 388 sq. ft. home sits on a steel trailer making it mobile. A downside to this though is that the cabin needs to be connected to water, power, and utility points, but a simple upgrade can include off-grid components such as a solar panel.
Inside, the One XL has a total ceiling height of 11.3 ft. and is lined with pine wood. It has bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a living room. The cabin can be customized to include additional appliances and amenities such as a washer and dryer. The upper loft is accessible through a built-in ladder. Each level is spacious at about 5 ft. high. The cabin has a lot of storage space and large windows that provide ample lighting. Its interiors are designed after Japanese elements such as “Shou Sugi Ban” or burnt wood siding. It even has closed-cell foam insulation.
The Escape One XL starts at $69,800.
Like the living room, the bedroom lofts — which also come with openable windows — can be converted into a different room, like a study of a play space for children.
