The Urban Micro Home is a 656 square foot home that was built in 2015 in Chattanooga, TN for the pilot episode of a TV show called Tiny House Mansions. It was a custom build for a client that wanted a space big enough to start a family in, but small enough that they could spend their extra time and money on adventures, passions, and travels. They wanted a modern/industrial vibe that incorporated lots of natural materials and that also paid homage to it's native home of Chattanooga, TN.

As pictured home layout and details:
Upon entering the front door of this amazing small house you find yourself in a combined kitchen and living area (~14'x32') with ceilings that soar to almost 15'. These high ceilings combined with a row of high fixed windows make this main area feel truly spacious. Straight ahead through the living room is an insulated full-light roll-up door leading to an outdoor deck and patio space. To the right of the roll-up door is a first floor bonus room (9.5'x8') that could serve as a bedroom or office. Next to this room is a door leading to a high carport (10'x19') that could be enclosed and combined with the adjacent bonus room to serve as a larger garage or master on main with large bathroom. Directly across from the kitchen is a set of stairs that leads to the master bedroom loft (10.5'x10') with full ensuite bathroom (3'x10') and amply sized closet (4.5'x3'). The second full bathroom (yes this home as 2 full baths) is located on the first floor under the stairway. The sliding barn door to the right of this bathroom leads to a large utility closet that houses a tankless hot water heater and a stacked washer/dryer.
The original home blends indoor and outdoor space with a 6' wide full light garage door and includes such features as: "The Galley Ideal Workstation 4" convertible kitchen sink, a behemoth custom welded steel vent hood by Caleb Knowles, charred pine and reclaimed wood accents, mixed siding (cedar, hardy panel, and corrugated metal), standing seam metal roof, a Rinnai gas tankless water heater, LG Combination washer/dryer, The Junior Giant Table and The Flexible Love Earth Jr seat from Expand Furniture, the Haiku Ceiling Fan, a 1.5 ton Mitsubishi Mr. Slim Mini-Split A/C and heat system, Ring Doorbell, and Piper security system.
It also features such green construction details as: 2x6 wall construction, r-23 mineral wool insulation in the walls, approximately r-55 closed-cell spray foam insulation in the ceiling, a grid tied solar system with Miasole flexible solar panels and Schneider Electric grid-tied inverter, and a continuous rain screen gap behind the exterior siding.
The build price of the Urban Micro Home depends on a variety of factors such as the builder you choose, the part of the country that you build in, and the topography of the lot you choose to build on. In general though, if you hire a contractor to build the house for you, it should cost somewhere between $95,000 and $120,000 with standard finishes and $120,000 to $150,000+ with the high end finishes (solar system, premium appliances etc.) mentioned above and that you see pictured in our gallery.
