Scaled-Down Farmhouse Homes

The Frontier Tiny Homes 'Orchid' is a Mini Version of a Classic Design

— November 16, 2018 — Eco
Farmhouses are often associated with a sprawling design with many rooms and space to spread out, but the Frontier Tiny Homes 'Orchid' aims to change this perception with a far more efficient design.

Boasting a lean 310 square feet of interior living space, the tiny home is outfitted with a garage-style door to draw the inhabitant outside when within and ample furniture that saves ample space. The dwelling can also be upgraded for the inhabitant to live off-the-grid, which will come as welcome news to those seeking to shake off the shackles of urban life.

The Frontier Tiny Homes 'Orchid' house has a solid walnut sofa that will transform into an additional bed on demand and even packs an HVAC system for year-round comfort.
