Tiny Idahomes designed an unconventional tiny home that expands with the simple press of a button. The home, which is technically labeled as an RV, was built in this quirky manner to comply with width requirements so the house could be transported on roads. When all the rooms are popped out, the tiny house is 250 square feet.
You wouldn’t be able to live in the house when it’s not expanded; the compacted form, which is 26 feet long, is meant for travel. But when the owner is ready to inhabit the home again, all they have to do is press a button, and extra space in the bedroom, an eating space, and a lounge slide out. There’s also a couch in the lounge that can fold out into a bed. A kitchen, storage loft, and bathroom equipped with a toilet, shower, and sink add further functionality. LED lights provide illumination for the shower.
Tiny Idahomes added a few features to ensure water will be kept out of the home, such as a built-in gutter and triple-seal protection. The expanding spaces in the home slide open on metal rails via an electric motor. A metal roof tops the house, and it’s clad with “board and batten siding.” The plywood walls and ceiling inside the home are painted white.
There are a few ways to power the home: an owner could connect it to solar panels, or to an RV hookup. Propane powers the oven. The home is also equipped with two 12-volt batteries. In addition, there are four water tanks to store waste from the toilet and fresh water.
Since Tiny Idahomes has taken the tiny house to shows, it already has more than 4,000 miles on it, so it will sell for a discounted price of $68,899. You can check out more details here.
