Tiny house enthusiast and builder Cody Makarevitz from CoMak Tiny Homes in Pennsylvania has transformed an old mobile hunting cabin into a stunning micro house on wheels. Dubbed The Mountain, the 150-sq-ft (13.95-sq-m) tiny house towers above the ground with a height of 13 ft 6 in (4.12 m) and boasts star-gazing attributes with a glass roof bedroom and bathroom.

“I wanted to build this model as a contradiction to the extra-large tiny houses I see being made and sold,” Cody Makarevitz tells New Atlas. “They seem to be getting larger and more expensive each year as the movement grows. I wanted to bring it back to the roots a bit. Tiny for tininess sake. Also, other micro homes I do see being made seem to be very small closed in boxes. I wanted to give it a go and see what solutions I could come up with to make a micro space actually livable.”

In designing The Mountain tiny house, Makarevitz adopted inspiration from his love for indoor/outdoor living spaces. With the dwelling being as tiny as it is, it was also a priority to incorporate an abundance of natural light throughout the home. He therefore decided to include extra-large skylights in the shower and above the loft bedroom, giving these tiny interior spaces an unusually open and airy atmosphere.

“I’ve always enjoyed showering outdoors and wanted to bring that experience inside,” says Makarevitz. “Stargazing is also a hobby of mine but can be a bit cold at times. I thought what better way to look at the night sky than from the comfort of your warm bed.”
