This "rustic cabin with a modern aesthetic" is the perfect combination of tiny house living and architectural excellence. Designed to have everything you need (and keep everything in its place), the small Wedge cabin boasts a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen/living space and a deck. The siding made of reclaimed Wyoming snowfence is both recycled and rustic-looking.
The Wedge features a 17-foot sloping roof, which starts off low in the bedroom but then rises through the living area, making the space larger and more open, allowing in more light. According to the Wheelhaus website, trapezoidal windows grow in a similar fashion from back to front. The park model home has a mostly glass front, optimizing space.
The bedroom can fit a king-sized bed, and a long butcher block countertop doubles as a desk and supports a hanging closet underneath for clothing storage, as well as a four drawer “dresser.”
The kitchen/living space is optimized for function as well as hanging out. It’s an L-shaped kitchen with a dishwasher, a two-burner cooktop, an under-counter refrigerator, a microwave, and a sink enclosed in granite countertops and high-quality cabinets. This little house may look rustic but it’s modern throughout. The bathroom has a glass shower and similar granite and cabinet upgrades.
You can also have a mini gas or electric fireplace and an air conditioner placed in the home, if you like. The units are 12 feet wide by 34 feet long and have decks which stretch to 44 feet. With a price tag of $82,000 to $96,500 they aren’t cheap, but they are certainly a lot cheaper than a pricey McMansion and they can be placed almost anywhere, thanks to their ability to fit on a trailer.
