In this contemporary tiny home, living off the grid doesn't have to mean roughing it

Wind River Tiny Homes is restoring the notion of the American dream by offering custom tiny homes that are both sustainable and high-quality. That quality level comes to life in The Rook, a modern/industrial custom home boasting a moody vibe.
At just 22 feet long, The Rook offers every convenience of a larger home along with the benefit of off-the-grid options such as a full solar system and compostable toilet. The model pictured is just $99,500 and is complete with premium lighting and appliances, as well as custom hardware.
Painted vertical siding with exposed screws and a custom roofline creates a custom-built look on the exterior.
A Dutch door leads to the meticulous interiors, which feature herringbone wood flooring and custom built-in bookshelves and cabinetry.
The kitchen features an integral concrete countertop and sink for a seamless look, paired with a modern pull-down faucet. Custom black pipe and wood open shelving stashes all of the necessities, along with a wooden spice rack cube.
More shelving and storage is situated next to the range, which features a stovetop with several burners. The kitchen also includes a full-size stainless steel refrigerator and freezer. Raw steel drawer pulls and handles complete the industrial look.
For an efficient workspace, the Tennessee-based company created a custom welded bookcase and fold-down desk.
At the back of the home, a built-in window seat and shelving offers a cozy space to crack open a book as the sun streams in.
Floating rebar steps lead up to the loft, which offers a roomy sleeping space big enough for a queen bed. A brick wall complements the home's modern, industrial look. Upstairs, the master loft boasts built-in cubbies and a ceiling fan.
The bathroom includes a Nature's Head Composting Toilet for complete off-the-grid living. The shower features brick tile underfoot and is surrounded by Galvalume metal walls.
A secondary loft offers additional storage as well as a tankless water heater, breaker box and washer/dryer combination. Ample shelves and built-in closet space provides plenty of storage options.
