The original SimBLISSity 24’ Aspen Tiny Home was designed in 2014. After extensive research into tiny house designs, we wanted to create a home that was suitable for 4 season living, and provided for features we felt were often lacking: a spacious, comfortable lounging area, sufficient storage for the realistic needs of necessities as well as the items that enrich our lives whether that be books, 20 pairs of shoes and boots, seasonal clothing and gear, a bright kitchen with enough room for gourmet needs and room to joyfully prepare food with your partner or friends. Other must-have features were abundant natural light and ventilation, a loft with 4’ sloping to 38”of headroom (best provided for by a gabled, dormer roof which doesn’t require one to crawl around), and easy stair access that doubles with storage space. The SimBLISSity 24’ Aspen Tiny House has seen some tweaks over the years to provide even greater functionality and is our most popular design. We have built this many times over with customized features varying for each client.
The 36” wide side entry, door provides room for a light-filled great room with built in L-shaped seating area with storage for bulky items below. Above is a smaller loft with 2 large picture windows. The cathedral ceiling gives the room an expansive and airy feel. There is wall space for a large screen TV and extensive shelving if one window is eliminated. A fold-down table below the aft window provides space for working or a romantic dinner.
As you proceed into the kitchen you’ll find 9’ of workspace including room for a 4-burner, free-standing range with oven, abundant counter space, and kitchen sink. If the ambiance of a propane fireplace is desired for heating, a corner model works beautifully at the great-room end of the counter. The stairs include storage nooks and 2 large closets for pantry, storage, and even clothes hanging needs. There is room for a 24” refrigerator with 9 to 10 cu ft.
A pocket-door entry reveals the bathroom which has a 36” x 30” shower and room for your choice in toilets (composting or flushing). Adjustments to plans can be made if a bathroom vanity or small sink is required. The on-demand, propane water heater can be accessed from inside the bathroom and is recessed into an insulated portion of the “2-bicycle garage” (thus keeping water pipes safe within the heated home).
Keeping the bathroom in close proximity to the kitchen affords for a simpler water/wasterwater line installation as well as minimizing the interference of exterior pipes with the trailer axles. This arrangement also allows for easier insulation of exterior lines, keeping drain water from freezing in cold climates.
The 10’ loft is large enough for a queen size bed with room to move around or a king size bed. There is additional room for a closet, shelves, or bureau at either end of the loft. Four operable windows allow for abundant natural light, excellent cross-ventilation, and egress exit. Plans can be altered for a 12’ loft, notched out for the stairs.
The loft floor is elevated to 6’7” to allow for increased headroom; there is more than enough room to sit up in your bed even with a 14” mattress without hitting your head. At the same time the kitchen and bathroom under the loft do not feel closed-in or cramped even for clients who are 6’3”. Of course taller people can alter the plans to provide for their added height.
