Architects Kelly Davis and Dan George Dobrowolski have elevated tiny house design with their Escape Traveler. The sleek model comes with an array of modern-day amenities, but it still has wheels, making it easier to move to your next destination, and is energy efficient. It’s so well designed, that it could work as a portable home or a lakeside retreat.
This luxurious tiny house is reinventing the rules of small living
Kelly Davis and ESCAPE usually build luxury cabins, so their version of a tiny house is convenience on wheels. The house is 269-square-feet, and at 28-feet long, most standard pick-up trucks can pull it. Designed to efficiently maximize every square foot, this tiny house has a living room, a kitchen, and even a full-size bathroom.
Even though this is technically a “tiny house” it can still sleep up to six people. The living area has a couch bed that is perfect for older guests and sleeping lofts above the living area and bathroom. There is also a fireplace and TV for those who want to snuggle up on a stormy night.
While most tiny houses are designed to simplify your lifestyle, these designers threw caution to the wind and figured out how to include many modern luxuries. The bathroom comes fully loaded with a toilet, tub, sink (you can opt for a double-bowl vanity), and a washer/dryer.
The bathroom has a full size tub—unlike many small homes that only have a compact shower—and they even offer a spa tub upgrade. The portable home comes with an on-demand hot water heater, so you can soak in the tub after a long day of hiking and swimming.
The design leaves room for a full-size fridge, oven, and four-burner stove—but you can opt for two if you want more counter space. You can also add a dishwasher if you’re not one for doing dishes. The appliances are all designed to consume minimal power and are climate controlled.
The large front window lets in natural light and provides amazing views. The table is small, but it leaves more room to move around in the kitchen area. It also encourages guests to take their meals outside.
The exterior is made from cedar siding, with metal roofing, while the interior uses recycled maple. Everything is handcrafted and you can choose from a variety of finishes and options, such as laminate or vinyl flooring, oak, or cherry cabinets, stone countertops, a ceiling fan, USB outlets, and more. The built-in shelving in each room provides plenty of space for your books, family photos, dishes, and fresh flowers.
The camper comes in several different designs and many of the smaller features can be adapted to your lifestyle. You can switch out the sofa bed for a couch and coffee table, which allows for more living space. If the house is just for two, one of the loft areas could also be used as storage space.
