Forget the stereotype of a shed on wheels, some of the largest tiny houses are more like apartments and push the boundaries of what’s possible in a towable home. With this in mind, we have a look at five of the biggest tiny houses we’ve seen so far.
As we’ve followed the tiny house movement over the years, one of the things we’ve noticed is that mainstream North American models have steadily grown larger and more luxurious – forget the stereotype of a cramped shed on wheels, some of them are more like towable apartments. With this in mind, let’s take a look at five of the largest and most well-designed tiny houses we’ve seen to date.
We last took a look at our favorite big tiny houses (admittedly a contradiction in terms, but “relatively large compared to other tiny houses” is a mouthful so let’s run with it) back in 2017 and the difference that four years makes is striking. The largest tiny house back then was 39 ft (11.8 m) long, while we considered the 30 ft (9.1 m) Vintage XL notably large enough to be included.
Nowadays 30 ft or more is typical for a North American tiny house and we are highlighting three homes here that are over 40 ft (12.1 m).All that extra space offers increased comfort, like roomy kitchens, spare bedrooms, and much-needed storage space, allowing families to live in relative comfort while enjoying the freedom that a tiny house offers.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention some drawbacks too, such as being far more awkward to tow, and in some cases even requiring a permit to do so. Plus bigger in size usually means an increase in cost, too.So, let’s take a look at five of the most impressive very large tiny houses we’ve seen in recent years and make sure to head to the gallery for more information and images on each tiny house mentioned.
