Here on our site, we love Tumbleweed Tiny Houses. We’ve featured quite a few of their awesome little creations, including the Roanoke, the Elm and Rustic Elegance. Indeed, quite a few of Tumbleweed’s homes have a rustic vibe—but not all of them. The Mica is a beautiful little house with a contemporary vibe and a very cool exterior finish. Let’s take a look.
That incredible colorful siding is hot-rolled weathering steel. At the time when this was made, there was nothing else like it anywhere. To date, I still haven’t seen anything like this anywhere else.
The entire RV measures only 8 and a half feet wide. As you can see, there are huge glass doors and windows (offering quite a magical view in this particular shot).
While I wouldn’t classify this as a “minimalist” interior, minimalism certainly has informed its design.
The bright colors help to define the spaces in the house, and really make the trim around the windows stand out.
There is a ton of storage above the bed.
The house features a low flush toilet in a sparse but functional bathroom.
The shower is simple and basic.
The window over the kitchen sink is kept small in favor of more cabinet space overhead. The dark red walls contrast with the white cabinets, which helps to make the kitchen feel a little roomer.
Notice how sleek the countertop looks.
Mica Tiny Houses can include anything from simple cooktops to full stoves. Tumbleweed likes to give buyers customization options.
Trying to picture how it all fits together? Take a look at the floor plans.
I am a little unclear on whether the Mica is actually still available to purchase. The company no longer lists it among its other Tiny House RVs, and the page which provided comprehensive information on the RV is gone (you can view it on Archive.org here).
Thankfully, you can still purchase the building plans. Find them here on the Tumbleweed website.
