“A tiny, cheap mobile home has never looked so good” – New York Post

The aptly named Alpha Tiny Home, which recently caught the limelight on HGTV’s “Tiny House, Big Living,” has all the fittings of a cute country home tucked inside a wee bit of space — reclaimed barn wood, a farmhouse sink and private outdoor space among them.

And it’s got a pretty small price tag to match: $95,000, as Curbed first reported.

Built by the Nashville, Tenn.-based New Frontier Tiny Homes, this pad is set on a trailer and can travel anywhere you go. That’s a handy feature for sure, but even more prominent is its tempered glass garage door, which leads to a fold-down deck and awning for al-fresco hang time.

Inside, the kitchen — even though smushed inside that cramped space — is well laid-out, with nice counter space and a good deal of storage. Surrounded by subway tiles, there’s also a decent-sized Whirlpool fridge, drawer dishwasher and an induction cooktop topped by a vent.

Worried about cooking with no space to eat? The kitchen, raised on a platform, rests above a pull- and fold-out dining table that seats eight.

When that’s not in use, two steps down from the kitchen lead to the windowed bathroom, which is separated by a sliding door. Subway tiles also surround its Jacuzzi tub, and just across from that stands a combo washer/dryer. In the middle, there’s a composting toilet. And when you want to catch some Z’s, the lofted bed located directly above is accessed by a sliding library-style ladder.

It also can’t hurt to note that, during very hot days, the Alpha Tiny Home also comes with an air conditioner.
