One-Story Tiny House Safer for Seniors or Disabled

One concern about tiny houses is that there is a heavy dependence on those sleeping and storage lofts. What if it is hard for you to get up ? For whatever reason some people really need a single with lots of in-wall storage.

  1. To me, this feels like a one bedroom single wide mobile home that’s been
    re-branded for today’s market. It has that mobile home feel to it (the
    cabinetry, layout). I lived in one for about 6 mos years ago (I’m old) and
    the mobile home we were in was old…but it has that feel.
    As soon as i saw those narrow counters, i thought coffee/tea station. We
    definitely did not have that back in the day (mind you, we DID have harvest
    gold appliances…some trends can stay dead)

  2. I’ve looked at similar homes like these before called park models. I like
    the ones where they have a loft running half or full length of the house.
    They have very spacious lofts for kids or grandkids to sleep. I really like
    the lay-out of these homes. I think the price range is $40,000 – $70,000
    depending on loft or no loft. If you buy them new, they usually come
    furnished and with all the appliances. Love the high ceilings too.

  3. If you wanted a washer and dryer, you would have to take space out of the
    bathroom, which is possible in the first of these two. One comment about
    the bedroom closet–it looks like the rod is too high for a short person to
    use. Did I see a drawers or cupboards below the closet? That seems wrong.

  4. I’ve lived from the east coast to the west coast and from the southern
    borders of Arizona to Idaho and you hit the nail on the head when it comes
    to houses must fit the region. Getting light into the home is simple if you
    incorporate VELUX skylights solar operated windows or something like them.
    It provides light from the top of the home and you can open and close the
    skylights and covers as needed. I like the first home you displayed in this
    video, not because I’m a senior and disabled but because it has the
    satisfying arrangements that will put a smile on the wife. I liked to think
    I spend more time in the shop, but truth is my wife works so I’ve got
    kitchen detail until she retires which should be in the next year, we hope.
    Depend on the increase on O-Care and medicine costs which are a bigger
    issue than the design of our home for sure. Be prepared for the horrid
    expenses coming your way when you get to the “grey-years”. Love you and
    your family the most!

  5. The only thing I have noticed about park models is the gas off of from all
    the man made materials. Lots of manmade materials. Not very organic. Thanks
    for sharing. They are cold in the winter. Insulation is not good.

  6. I love that you work hard to become an expert in all of your family
    ventures and lifestyle decisions! Always very informative videos! Love
    them!

  7. I really hope you don’t let others stress you out when you express your
    opinions on places. You are looking at all these spaces so you can do just
    that… figure out what works for you. 12 years ago when we went used rv
    shopping and we were spending MUCH less… we went into probably 100 RV’s.
    Take your time and figure it out… a layout that works with your family is
    everything.

  8. You brought up several valid concerns while touring this tiny house; how
    much will it cost to heat/cool the place, will having too many windows
    cause it to get too hot/cold, and is the air quality good. I’ve been
    researching tiny houses for a long time now and I would never buy/build one
    without using passive house principles for it. (The earthship house you
    toured in an earlier video is a good example of a passive house.)

    A well designed passive house will be comfortable to live in, non-toxic,
    and cost you very little to heat/cool. Some things to look for in a tiny
    house are as follows:

    1) It will be well insulated with proper thermal breaks and have good
    insulated windows.
    2) Have majority of windows on the south side to provide solar heating in
    winter; have minimal windows on the east/west/north sides to avoid
    overheating in summer or getting too cold in the winter. Keep in mind,
    you’ll need to add appropriate shading for all windows since practically
    all tiny houses don’t come with any sort of shading built-in such as eaves
    or awnings.
    3) East side of the house is the coolest and gets morning sun while the
    west side of the house is the hottest and darkest in the morning. Kitchens
    placed on the east side is best since you’ll get natural light in the
    morning to cook breakfast and you won’t feel as hot cooking dinner in the
    evening.
    4) Was it built using non-toxic materials
    5) Does the floorplan promote good airflow
    6) Has outside storage. If placed on the west side, it will act as a buffer
    against summer heat.
