Proper design and layout can make a tiny house on wheels feel a lot larger than it is. Parked semi-permanently in Wildwood, Washington, a community of lake front cottages, this park model tiny has a skit covering the wheels, giving it a more traditional construction feel.
Exterior view of the San Juan Park Model THOW.
At 400 square feet, this park model unit stretches the limits of the hardcore tiny house designation and pushes it up into the “large” RV category. Outside you’ll find traditional cabin construction with painted wood siding, stained cedar trim and standing ridge metal roofing.
Living room, opening up onto two decks.
With the added deck and outbuilding, the mobile vacation home takes on epic proportions and looks like a great place to spend a week relaxing.
The house features one of the coolest uses of a Murphy bed (wall bed) in tiny house history. Positioned opposite the galley kitchen – and under the standard sleeping loft – is a corner opening dining room, with a table that converts into a Murphy bed.

The sliding glass paneled doors that meet at the corner give the space a slight Asian vibe, which blends right in with the traditional contemporary interior.
The living area features high windows at the roof line and two big sets of French doors, one on a long wall, one at the end of the THOW, bringing the outdoors in and leading out to decks that increase the living space. A large, rocked-in fireplace is the central focus of the living area.
Master bedroom with head board alcove.
Behind the kitchen, a beautiful master bedroom features a queen sized bed with a nicely detailed headboard cut-out in the wall.
The bath is also full-featured with a walk in shower, flush toilet and mid-sized vanity that feels generous in this tiny space. The earth tones, stone and bright pine trim carry throughout the whole house, creating dramatic contrasts, especially in the bathroom.

Upstairs a short bed room sits nestled under the peaked roof with a full sized bed. Here too, the full-sized windows let in a lot of light and make this house feel like a much larger dwelling.
The extra length allows for things to be spaced out, leaving room for a lot of luxury items, like the full sized fridge, sink and kitchen counters that create plenty of work space for even gourmet meals.
