Designing small yet sophisticated spaces is quite a challenge – but Cubist Engineering proves it can be done with the Sturgis tiny home. The compact 21.5′ x 8.5′ space packs a big punch when it comes to beautiful design. Built with highly-insulated CLT timber, the serene, light-filled home on wheels can be installed virtually anywhere.
The Sturgis tiny home was built to be a serene retreat, free of clutter and flooded with natural light. To that end, an abundance of windows fills the interior with light and storage areas help keep everything organized. The living room has enough space for a full-size sofa and a small office. The kitchen is adjacent to the living room and comes with a stove top, fridge, deep sink, and plenty of storage.

In order to create optimal space without feeling cramped, the designers came up with a few tricks such as hiding the queen-sized bed in the ceiling above the sofa. With just the push of a button, it rises and lowers on thin railings in the walls.
This tiny home on wheels is much more than just aesthetically pleasing. Working with CLT timber provider, SmartLam, the makers of the Sturgis used SFO-certified wood to create a resilient shell for the home. Prefabricated to reduce construction times, the wood frame is incredibly strong and highly-insulated. The Sturgis’ compact size and strong materials mean that the home can be installed quickly virtually anywhere, in any climate, and can always be moved, leaving little to no carbon footprint.
