Previously on our site, we featured a cool eclectic tiny house built by Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses and commissioned by a woman in Austin, TX. The house was built for $22,000, and was based on another model by Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses called the “Boulder.”
We never did feature the original Boulder on our site. According to the manufacturers, it has “gone on to launch numerous variations and spur design inspiration for several other builds since its completion.” So that includes the house for the woman in Austin as well as a few others. Let’s check it out!
The original Boulder tiny house features a distinctive angular build. The siding is a combination of corrugated tin and cedar boards.
Notice how the corrugated tin sometimes reflects the light with a bluish cast.
This provides a contrast between the metal and the wood, as does the interplay of horizontal and vertical lines.
The Boulder tiny house was named for the city of Boulder, Colorado. This is an homage to the progressiveness of the city as well as the innovative modern architecture which can be found there in abundance.
Here we see one of the unique innovations inside the tiny house. While it is common for stairs in tiny houses to double as cabinets, I have never seen offset steps like these. They would probably make for a more natural ascent up to the loft. They also leave room for a desk.
There is no denying that the kitchen is tiny—but it looks like a cozy spot to prepare meals. You’ve got to love that adorable rustic table on the right as well!
In fact, here is a closer look at the table:
Simple furnishings keep the interior open.
From the loft, it is obvious just how small this place is—but it looks perfectly comfortable. The woodwork is certainly beautiful. Notice the cool rustic light fixture.
Here is that light fixture turned on:
In this shot, you can see where the bathroom is, hidden away underneath the loft.
That has to be the tiniest sink I’ve ever seen in a tiny house. Wow! The mirror is miniscule as well.
It looks like most of the room in the bathroom is taken up by the shower. I guess that shouldn’t be a surprise. It’s kind of amazing a shower even fits in here.
The Boulder Tiny House starts at $35,000. Different sizes are available; it can be tailored to fit a 16’, 18’ or 20’ trailer. And as you know, Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses is more than happy to work with customers who want something a little different. So check out the official page for the Boulder here, and think about buying your own or commissioning a Boulder-inspired tiny house like this one.
