Do you watch Tiny House Big Living on HGTV? Then you might remember a house called “Atlas” which the show featured in Episode 13 of the first season. That stunning home is now for sale for just $50,000—and it has been significantly enhanced since its feature episode. Let’s check it out!
The current owners write, “After a year of exploring North America and re-building Atlas into the ultimate off-grid home, we’re finally listing it for sale to start a new chapter. After the original builders created it, they put it up for rent in a small tiny-house community called Wee Casa in Lyons, CO. When we bought Atlas, it was setup for a life of being parked, but we quickly changed that.”
The 196 square foot home now has a remodelled bathroom as well as other improvements including, “640 watts of solar panels, 460 aH of AGM battery storage, a shower, sink, composting toilet, and enough water storage to last 3-4 weeks off-grid.”
That means that you can escape in this tiny beauty for weeks on end if you’re all stocked up in terms of food and you have a satellite connection.
In terms of design, the house is sleek and modern, with one wall comprised almost entirely of windows and doors. To ensure that all that glass is safe while driving, the awning can be closed over the entire side of the house in transit.
The other walls of the house aren’t too heavy on doors/windows, but then, they don’t need to be. Storage, wall space, and utilities do need to go somewhere.
There are only a few interior shots, with this one giving the clearest idea of what the inside of the home is like. There is nothing rustic about this tiny house; it is all clean, contemporary lines. For a minimalist who wants to focus on the views while exploring the great outdoors in a tiny house, this is as good as it gets.
This isn’t a good photo of the kitchen, but it does imply that the house is ready to be enjoyed by the chef of the family.
With its under-200 square footage, I would think that a single person would live very comfortably in this house.
Then again, so can two! I like how the loft almost feels more like a “hanging bed” than a loft per se. The wood textures are very smooth and “finished” looking in this home, without a lot of knotty grain. But the effect is still decorative and appealing—just in a more contemporary fashion than most wood in tiny houses.
This is another great shot of the interior. You can see where the fridge and freezer are under the stairs, and you can glimpse the shower. My fridge is about that size in my tiny house, and I can tell you it is just about perfect. I actually prefer it to when I had an apartment-size fridge.
