Writer: James Gabriel Martin / Publish Date: 17 April 2018
The latest tiny dwelling from New Frontier Tiny Homes just might inspire you to downsize – and write a few best-selling books in the process. Named the Cornelia after internationally renowned children’s author Cornelia Funke, the tiny houseserves a three-in-one purpose as a writing studio, guest house and library.
In addition to being comfortable and cozy, the Cornelia also features luxe design elements and amenities, a staple of New Frontier’s tiny homes. The trailer measures 24 feet in length and 8.5 feet wide, but high vaulted ceilings help to give it a more spacious feel while also kicking the elegance factor up a notch. Clerestory windows allow plenty of light to easily permeate the space and offers unobstructed views of the surrounding forest.
The interior is both modern and rustic in appearance, thanks to stylish Scandinavian-inspired furniture and the reclaimed barn wood that covers the walls and ceilings. The creative layout easily allows enough room for a kitchen complete with drawers, shelves, a sink, a window and a hidden dishwasher that helps to maximize space. There’s also a flexible living room, a small bathroom, a loft-style king-size bed that’s accessible by a movable ladder, and a fold-out desk that can be stored when it’s not in use. High ledges run the length of the living space, allowing for quite a bit of book storage. Also, there’s an awning that makes for a nice, shady hangout spot.
The asking price for a pared down version of the Cornelia is $110,000, while the spiffier model will run you $125,000, both of which are on the more expensive side for tiny homes. But with a New Frontier home, there are premium advantages that other tiny houses may not offer, like sleeping in a bedroom that won’t leaving you feeling claustrophobic and taking comfort in the fact that what your home lacks in size, it more than makes up for in style.
