This tiny house was built by Tiny Green Cabins in 2014 for Nicki Jo Davis, a firefighter and recent empty nester, who wanted to downsize from her enormous family home in Savannah, Georgia.  This custom home is called the Ravenlore.  It is  240 square feet, weighs 13,000 lbs, and sits on 4 axels.  The exterior design is Victorian style and was made to look a bit like a gingerbread house. Most obviously though, the color is what stands out the most about this tiny house, and Nicki said picked the colors because she loves how completely ridiculous they are!

Some of the key features of the tiny house are the solar panels which provide most of the power.  There is a very nice size kitchen and full bathroom with a shower,  and waterless incinerating toilet.  There is a washer/dryer combo machine in the kitchen, great storage throughout the whole house, and a decent sized loft for sleeping.  Nicki did a great job maximizing and utilizing her space, she even made room for a big space to view movies on a pull down projection screen.

Nicki’s finished tiny home cost her just under $60,000.  She is from Thunderbolt, Georgia, which is just outsound of Savannah.  The summers there can be extremely hot so one of the most important features of the tiny house is the electric AC unit. Nicki’s tiny house was featured on HGTV’s Tiny House Hunters and we can understand why it’s been viewed over 2 million times already!
