The Tiny House Building Company of Fredericksburg, Virginia, has frankly outdone itself and its competition in the tiny house industry with this showstopper, aptly called the Mountaineer.
Of course, the Mountaineers is the nickname for the neighboring state, West Virginia, but we'll chalk this one up to regional pride. The 24-foot long, twin-dormer micro-shelter resembles a mini-mountain range all by itself. Parked in front of a Cabela's outlet as an exhibit, the home is dwarfed by the retail Denali behind it. But most other settings will show that this is a pull-out-all-the-stops design. The twin dormers are like twin peaks that allow for two sleeping lofts, one called the King sleeping loft and the other the Queen.
Let's take a tour of this tongue-and-groove palace made of pine.
First stop is the exterior of this beauty. The backside shows that the dormers allow for opposing windows in each loft.
Check out the front porch of this house with its distinctly down-home, Appalachian qualities. In fact, this porch would look right at home in any mountain region from Georgia to British Columbia.
This picture gives you both the long side and front views.
Tongue-and-groove pine anyone? This home is top-to-bottom tongue-and-groove, giving the interior a mountain cabin look.
This view shows the stairs in the background and the ladder in the foreground. These get you to the queen-sized and king-sized lofts.
Here's a closer view of the storage stairs and a look at the stunning kitchen. The dull chrome below the counter is the refrigerator. The shiny surface toward the right is the countertop electric stove.
From the company's YouaTube video, here's a shot of the kitchen sink.
Also from YouTube, the King's sleeping loft in a photo shot shows the antler-decorated ceiling light in the center of the home.
The Mountaineer's shower and a telltale roll of toilet paper suggests there's a toilet nearby. There is. The photographer is likely sitting on the throne to take this shot.
