ESCAPE Homes, Rice Lake, Wis., builder of travel-ready tiny RV homes, unveiled its newest organic design in the new ESCAPE One.
Highlighted by an exterior of Shou Sugi Ban (the Japanese technique of charred siding), the 276-square-foot tiny home on wheels features a huge sleeping loft and a “raw, Zen-like” interior that can translate into several uses for its owner.
A large picture window draws the outdoors in and the pine kitchen features space-saving elements of an under-counter refrigerator, hideaway sink and stove, and upper shelving.
The expansive area on the first floor, underneath the loft, is ideal for an office, living area, bedroom or library. A built-in closet and pull-out drawers are incorporated into the stairs that lead to a second floor with five-foot ceilings, and a panorama of windows that open.
The bathroom features a 36-inch tub/shower, designer sink and toilet. Other unit features and options include: queen, king or twin beds, flatscreen TV with blu-ray, stone countertop, USB outlets, cellular shades, and an exterior shower.
ESCAPE One can sleep up to four people, is easily transported via its own trailer, and is crafted with high-efficiency insulation and climate control options that allow it to withstand extreme heat or cold. Power usage is minimal and ESCAPE One water, power and utility hook-up takes just minutes, enabling it to travel with the whim of its owner.
Although built like a cottage, by law ESCAPE One is a park model RV, and therefore requires no foundation and is not subject to property tax. ESCAPE One starts from $49,800.
Privately-owned ESCAPE Homes are situated across the country, from New York’s Hudson Valley to California’s Sonoma Valley including the Hawaiian Islands and folks can “vacation tiny” in eight ESCAPE Home Airbnb rentals across the country. The company’s designs have been widely recognized for their aesthetics and use of space. “The Today Show” called them “stunning” and “Forbes” said they’re “the world’s most beautiful tiny house.”
