The Buttercup by Modern Tiny Living is designed as a weekender/vacation home but can also serve as a full-time residence if desired. It is relatively small for a North American tiny house, especially when compared to larger models like the Canada Goose. Built on a double-axle trailer, it features engineered wood siding and a metal roof. Power is obtained through a standard RV-style hookup.
Upon entering the Buttercup, visitors are greeted by a light-filled living room finished in PVC paneling and adorned with vinyl flooring. While not as spacious as the Bofin, another similar tiny house, the living room still offers a generous amount of space for its size. It includes bookshelves and a large U-shaped sofa with seating for six, along with integrated storage.
The sofa conveniently converts into a bed to accommodate guests. Adjacent to the living room is the kitchen, which boasts custom cabinetry, Corian countertops, and a dining table nestled beneath the staircase. It is equipped with a sink and a washer/dryer, while the owner plans to install their own fridge, oven, and any additional appliances required.
Accessible through a sliding barn-style door from the kitchen, the bathroom in the Buttercup is compact, housing a shower, flushing toilet, sink, and shelving.
The tiny house features a single bedroom located in a loft space, accessible via a storage-integrated staircase. This typical tiny house-style loft offers a double bed, albeit with a low ceiling, and provides additional storage space that serves as a dividing wall for privacy.
The cost of the Buttercup came in at approximately US$86,000.
