If you are not familiar with the name, it's because JT Collective is a new player on the tiny living scene, and the model presented here is their very first design. It doesn't even have a proper name, with the Tollhouse, California-based company simply calling it Tiny House #1.
Boasting the ever-so-popular wood and metal two-tone siding, the tiny home measures 35 feet long and 8.5 feet wide (10.6 x 2.6 meters), offering 360 square feet (33.4 square meters) of functional living space. It is built on a 3-axle trailer, each with brakes for easy transportation between locations. Pipe jacks are present at each corner for added stability.
The inside of the house is bright and functional, with white shiplap walls throughout, paired with a stained wood ceiling. The clever layout comprises a stunning kitchen, a spacious living room, a bathroom, and two lofts - one functioning as a bedroom and one that can be set up as either an extra sleeping space or a relaxation area where you could curl up with a good book.
The living room is quite generous compared to other tiny houses, and there is room for a three-person couch and a side table against one wall, while the opposite wall houses a 32" TV under which the owner could place a small piece of furniture, like a cabinet or a sideboard. A conveniently wide window bay creates the perfect reading nook and hides a storage chest underneath.
The ground floor boasts an open-space design, so there is a smooth flow between the grand room and the kitchen. However, the designers placed a rug in the living room, which is a great way to define areas and create separation between functional zones.
The kitchen is both beautiful and practical, with base and overhead white cabinets and plenty of counter space for cooking. At one end of the kitchen, there is a built-in seating area under an interesting light fixture that can be used for dining or working. The kitchen's functionality is given by a sleek and proficient double induction stove top, a farmhouse sink, a microwave oven, and a full-size freezer fridge. Two large pantries are also included, and the abundance of windows floods the area with natural light, making it feel spacious and comfortable.
The bathroom is adjacent to the kitchen and is as functional as the other areas in this tiny house. It is fitted with a storage vanity with a sink and mirror above it, a residential toilet, and a large fiberglass shower stall. Built-in open shelves opposite the toilet add extra storage and character.
The fixtures and decor items throughout the house are handpicked to add elegance to the interior, at the same time complementing the overall modern look.
JT Collective's tiny home is fully certified to meet CA ANSI building codes for safety and is perfect for a couple. It is now available for purchase for $132,000.
