ALPHA TINY HOME
Just because a home’s small doesn’t mean it can’t impress. The Alpha Tiny Home uses a mix of modern design and traditional materials to create a cozy, inviting space. It rests on a 24′ trailer, yet makes the most of the space with a fold-down deck and awning, tempered glass garage and sliding doors to let the outside in, a multi-use main area, usable kitchen with upscale, stainless steel appliances, and a bedroom loft that sits above the bathroom’s composting toilet and Jacuzzi tub and shower, offering room for both a king-size bed and night stands. It’s clad in cedar siding with a mechanical seam roof.

You heard it here first, folks: Living large (or even medium-sized) is officially a thing of the past! Settling in a tiny house is more than just a trend; it’s a lifestyle choice that people all over the country are happily taking up. And today, we’re here to show you the best of the best tiny homes—i.e. the tiny houses that turned out so perfectly, we can’t help but give them an upgraded moniker. Because face it: Many structures can measure less than 300 feet…but not every structure can really prove itself to be beautiful, accommodating, and lovely enough to live in for an extended period of time. With ideas this stylish and innovative, though, small-sized homes are more than just a possibility; they’re a really, really good decision waiting to happen. So whether you’re hoping to cash in on a new vacation home somewhere high in the hills or completely downsize, there’s bound to be at least one home on our list that speaks to your style, taste, and decor sensibilities. (Of course, if you’re feeling extra impulsive, you can even purchase one today—just check out our list of all the best tiny houses currently available on Amazon!)
The sleek design by New Frontier Tiny Homes features a farmhouse sink, shiplap and subway tile squeezed into 200 square feet. Best of all, though, a sliding glass garage door reveals a deck that pops out from the home, making al fresco dining a cinch.

As we get ready to roll over into the new year, we can’t help but look back on some of the best that 2016 had to offer in home trends, design, and decor. And one aspect that definitely stands front and center is that of the tiny-house movement. With addicting TV shows popping up on HGTV, FYI, and more, most of us were first introduced to this small-living craze through the silver screen. But now it seems like the tiny-home movement is not only everywhere we look, but is also very much here to stay (we have to admit we are ready to take the plunge ourselves!). Read on as we have rounded up the very best of 2016’s tiny homes, and we just gotta say, if next year is anything like this one, we are in for many more exciting tiny-home treats!
The Alpha Tiny Home by New Frontier Tiny Homes
The gorgeous Alpha Tiny Home by New Frontier Tiny Homes kicks us off with a bang. With dimensions of 24′ x 8’6″ (and 13’6″ tall), breathtaking cedar siding, and a metal roof to boot, this is the ultimate in tiny home construction.

The tiny-home trend has really taken off in the last few years. That’s perhaps partly thanks to the variety of shows on HGTV that feature tiny homes, like Tiny House Builders, Tiny House Hunters, and Tiny House, Big Living. This last show is where you’ll see the work of New Frontier Tiny Homes, the builders of the world’s ultimate micro-abodes.
Here, you can look inside the Alpha Tiny Home, New Frontier’s flagship model. At only 246 square feet, it’s just about the fanciest little thing you’ve ever seen. The Alpha Tiny Home is customizable based on the owner’s needs and, according to Huffington Post Home, costs around $95,000.
The CEO of New Frontier, David Latimer, told HuffPo that the Alpha model costs more than other tiny homes because of its high quality. He said, “The quality of our design, our materials, our craftsmanship, the multifunctional furniture and optimization of space are second to no one.” And judging by the photos of this mini wonder, he’s not kidding.

Whoever said good things come in small packages was clearly talking about this tiny home.
Latimer understands that the tiny home lifestyle isn’t for everyone.
“You may not ‘get’ the movement,” Latimer said. “But we aren’t advocating for a new standard in housing. We just want the option to live in a sensible way: debt free, with economic responsibility.”
New Frontier Tiny Homes is based in Nashville, but deliver anywhere in the continental United States. Check out the pictures below to see if the tiny home movement is for you.

A lot of the time, tiny homes are decorated just like your grandmother’s house. Shingled exteriors, cringe-worthy patterns and maybe even a cutesy name that’s slightly embarrassing to say. Well, the Alpha Tiny Home doesn’t have a crocheted pillow in sight, and it’s the most convincing reason to downsize yet.
The sleek abode by New Frontier Tiny Homes spotlights all of the latest design trends — yep, a farmhouse sink, shiplap and subway tile — in just about 200-square-feet. A sliding glass garage door opens up to reveal a pop-out deck, and don’t miss the custom dining table that slides out come dinner time.
If the space looks familiar, there’s a possibility you already spotted it on HGTV’s “Tiny House, Big Living.” But chances are you won’t mind admiring its features all over again:
If the view’s not doing it for you, maybe the boatload of floor space will.
The porch actually folds back up as part of the exterior, but if you’re staying put, just pull down the garage door to close up at night.
If you didn’t notice the barnwood ceiling already, the stove hood draws the eye straight up.
Fold-down cabinets tuck away for seamless storage (and hide away all of your guilty pleasure snacks).
Doing dishes wouldn’t be such a chore with that view, but there’s also a dishwasher for the unapologetically lazy.
Don’t worry — the uber-cool Edison bulbs are part of the entire $95,000 package.
Just in front of the sliding barn door is a slim storage space for clothes. (Sorry, shopaholics.)
Yep, that’s a full-size Jacuzzi tub for when you need to get away from your stressful tiny house lifestyle.
The ceiling may be just a few feet away, but the sleeping loft actually fits a king-size bed.
Invite up to eight of your closest friends for dinner. You’ll all fit around a custom table that magically folds out from under the kitchen. Obviously, putting it back after a few glasses of wine will be a different story.
