Mint Tiny House Company, a custom home builder in Vancouver, British Columbia, has a knack for creating sophisticated designs that pack style and function into a compact layout — 32 feet and under. RV certified in Canada and the United States, these sleek homes are road ready.
On the inside, however, they have all the hallmarks of a luxury farmhouse home: exposed beam ceilings, shiplap siding and apron-front sinks. Beveled cedar siding is painted a smooth gray in this model, Napa #2, and topped with a durable metal roof in a slate gray.
Inside, 10-foot high ceilings give this home the feel of a much larger space. Stained cedar trim complements white T+G wall paneling. Track lighting and vintage sconces keep the space bright and airy, as do expansive opening sash windows. A faux hide rug is perfectly at home in the shabby-chic aesthetic.
In the loft storage area, cedar beams on the ceiling bring an attractive contrast. A removable ladder offers easy access above the entry seating area. Next to the sofa, large French doors flood the space with light. An overhead fan keeps air flowing from above.
The fully fitted kitchen features some luxe features as well. A full stove and oven is topped with a stainless steel hood, and track lighting shines down from above. A full-size refrigerator means you don't have to skimp on food shopping. Plus, exposed cedar beam ceilings and white panel ceiling continue the farmhouse aesthetic.
The roomy ceramic apron-front farmhouse sink is fitted with a Moen faucet. Countertops are a butcher block veneer for an upscale look. A large window above the sink offers a nice view for anyone doing the dishes.
A storage staircase leads up to the loft sleeping area. Topped with cedar treads, the staircase incorporates sleek drawers underneath for stashing clothes and home products. Built-in shelving holds home decor, books and ceramics.
The loft sleeping area has a large skylight to fall asleep to the stars and wake up to the sun. Built-in storage includes a closet rod for hanging shirts, jackets and pants. At its height, the ceiling reaches 3 feet 4 inches, so you don't have to be on your hands and knees. Throughout, power outlets feature USB connections to charge up while you sleep.
Hand-scraped click laminate flooring features a wood look in a sleek espresso finish. Homeowners can choose to upgrade to vinyl or hardwood. All in all, this model is turn-key ready for about $63,000 USD. Mint even offers a delivery service if you don't have a vehicle to tow the home.
