The Cascade Mini by Tru Form Tiny, a finalist in the Most Out of the Ordinary and Best Traditional Design categories, is not your average tiny home.

You're greeted by an oasis of compact luxury, where every inch is thoughtfully designed to intertwine functionality with comfort. Imagine a sun-powered, eco-friendly abode with not one, but three outdoor decks. Inside, you'll find no compromise on comfort, from a full laundry unit to a bathroom that defies tiny house norms.

But what sets this tiny house apart, you ask? Let’s take a look.

A Look Inside

Inside the Cascade Mini's compact yet luxurious interior, you'll see its efficient layout and high-end amenities. The space is utilized to its fullest potential, showcasing not only the ingenuity of its design but also its commitment to providing a comfortable and fully equipped living environment.

In the heart of the home, you'll find a kitchen brimming with conveniences. It's equipped with a DC-powered fridge, a drawer dishwasher, and a three-burner range - all thoughtfully arranged to maximize space and usability. The movable island is a clever addition, allowing you to adapt the room to your needs, whether you're prepping a meal or entertaining guests.

The bathroom, a typically compromised space in tiny homes, is surprisingly spacious. It features a full-size bathtub and shower, a large vanity, and even a mini chandelier. It's evident that no corners were cut to ensure the bathroom feels like a sanctuary, not a compromise.

The sustainable elements of the Cascade Mini aren't to be overlooked either. Solar power shows a commitment to eco-conscious living without sacrificing modern comforts. The exterior boasts three outdoor deck spaces and a motorized fold-down deck, enhancing the indoor-outdoor living experience. Even the inclusion of a full laundry unit is a nod to practicality and convenience that's often missed in tiny house designs.

The intriguing exterior spiral staircase is a blend of functionality and aesthetic appeal, adding a unique architectural touch. Despite its compact size, the Cascade Mini doesn't skimp on comfort or convenience. The inclusion of a full laundry unit, rare in tiny homes, ensures you won't sacrifice space or convenience.

In short, the Cascade Mini manages to seamlessly blend luxury, innovation, and functionality. It reimagines what's possible in tiny house living, proving that you don't need to sacrifice comfort or style for a smaller footprint.

What Makes It Stand Out

The Cascade Mini stands out as a finalist in the Most Out of the Ordinary and Best Traditional Design categories thanks to its innovative blend of luxury and practicality in a tiny home format. Its unique features, like the motorized fold-down deck and exterior spiral staircase, alongside sustainable elements such as solar power, push the boundaries of traditional tiny house design. The efficient use of space, high-end amenities, and the surprising inclusion of a full laundry unit and a spacious, luxurious bathroom, all contribute to its standout appeal, making it a marvel of modern, eco-conscious living.
