The “Superhouse”

Ever since Steve and I have started working together we have been naming the Tiny Houses we work on. This is the “Superhouse” which is the first house we worked on together. It’s not quite finished yet but it’s getting close.

It’s an interesting one for a couple reasons:

  1. It’s for a Family of four that includes Mom & Dad and two kids so we had to make it essentially a three bedroom model (you’ll see how in the photos)
  2. Dad is 6′-7″ tall so we had to raise the lofts an extra six inches than usual.

Once finished, the “Superhouse” will be on display at another Tiny Open House on Steve’s property where he builds them in the next month or so.

For now, just enjoy some photos…

  1. What would this cost to build and what would you guys sell this for? I have a family of 4 and am looking to build (or purchase at the right price) a tiny home similar to this. Thanks!

    1. Not sure of the ‘cost’ to build it as I am not the one who buys the materials or builds it. I can tell you that a similar one we built that was only 32′ long instead of 34′ sells for about $87,500 including all appliances.

  2. There is a product I have seen for fixing driveways, it’s an injection process, they inject an epoxy material under slab,fills void and stabilizes underneath slab to stop anymore movement, hope you can check out this type of solution 😃✌

  3. We just bought a 1904 250 sq foot tiny home. We would like to restore it as it has original redwood walls as well as redwood siding outside. Do you have any ideas for a concrete cracked floor? We have “floated ” 2 and that has not worked

    1. By the sound of it, there is ground movement which may have caused it to crack in the first place. No matter how many times you repair the floor, it will crack again if there continues to be movement. Tough spot to be in. Going to take a lot of money and work to remedy, but it is possible.
