This tiny home is big on Southern style. Meet the , a 464-square-foot structure that just might be the dreamiest tiny home we've ever seen. The modular house is one of two designed by Jeffrey Dungan (of Birmingham-based ) as part of the (also in the collection is the ). This particular Designer Series tiny home (and naturally, our favorite) is dubbed Low Country in honor of the Southern regions that inspired its style.
The exterior features poplar bark siding with 1x4 vertical shiplap, while the roof is made of cedar shake and metal. "When I think of low country, it's always about the marshlands of South Carolina and the coastal regions around Savannah and Charleston with their inherent and intoxicating ease of living," Dungan said. "What could be more Southern than a porch with bracket supports and handmade details like carved rafter tails at the eaves for good measure?"
Like some old Southern homes, the Low Country boasts vaulted ceilings to allow heat to rise during those hot, hot summers— dormer windows for better ventilation. The current floor plan sleeps four comfortably (there's a queen-size bed in the master).
In the kitchen, there's a full-height pantry, a gas stove, a dishwasher, and built-in bar dining for four. There's even a stacked washer-dryer, built-in desk, and full height closet storage—three things not always seen in spaces of this size.
Currently, the Low Country is merely a concept tiny home, meaning it's not yet available to the public. It also does not yet have an approved construction time or price point—though we're told that could be coming soon.
"When we were approached to design a collection of modular or manufactured houses, my first thought was, 'That's what I've spent the better part of my life avoiding!'" Dungan said. "After some reflection, I realized that sometimes opportunities come disguised. We were impressed with how serious the group at Clayton was about doing something out-of-the-box that could actually change the paradigm of what it means to be a manufactured home. We continue to be excited about the challenge of raising the bar and thrilled with bringing the fit and finish of custom homes to a totally new market."
