The Rooke Haus

Today we’d like to introduce you to the last of our tiny houses (for now) – The Rooke Haus. The Rooke Haus has the exact same footprint as The Humblebee, with a slightly smaller total living area of 216 square feet.


Out of all our homes, The Rooke Haus has the largest living area (7′ by 11′) and has enough space for at least two armchairs, a gas fire heater, a coffee table, a wall-mounted folding table, two floor-to-ceiling closet/shelving units and another two floor-to ceiling shelving units! So we have a tonne of storage space in the living area alone, but what about the rest of the house?

Unlike any of our other homes, this one has a 2-foot wide gas stove, which should be able to cater for all your cooking needs. The kitchen also has a 4.5 cubic-foot stainless steel refrigerator, and of course the essential kitchen sink. On top of that, we’ve also squeezed in plenty of base cabinets, drawers, wall cabinets and built-in storage!


The bathroom is the second largest of all the bathrooms featured in our homes – a total of 32 inches wide! It might not sound all that large compared to your average bathroom, but this is tiny house living after all, and on that scale it’s quite luxurious. The bathroom has all your standard fixtures and fittings – shower, toilet and the option of adding a sink if required.

The loft is perhaps our most spacious yet. The low mono pitch roof allows the walls to extend further up than other roof types, giving you that little bit of extra elbow room. And unlike other homes, the loft has four windows as opposed to two, flooding both the loft and the living area below with light. As always the loft is large enough to accommodate a queen sized mattress with storage space to spare.
