You've just embarked on a journey into one of the most unique marvels of the tiny home world: the Purple Heart Manor by Acorn Tiny Homes.

This isn't just a tiny house, it's a carefully crafted experience, oozing charm from its custom-made stained glass door to the unique W roof line.

It's not hard to fall in love with the exceptional attention to detail here, from the off-grid kitchen's custom cabinetry to the slipper tub that makes the bathroom feel like a spa.

But what makes this home truly extraordinary? Stay tuned to unravel the mysteries of this tiny home masterpiece.

A Look Inside

Step inside the Purple Heart Manor, and you're immediately greeted by an exquisite fusion of medieval-inspired elegance and modern functionality. You're captivated by the lime-washed wall paneling and the 11 operable triple-glazed windows, allowing natural light to illuminate the grandeur within. The rolling library ladder catches your eye, inviting you to explore the vast collection of books adorning the floor-to-ceiling shelves.

Further in, the kitchen displays an uncanny blend of retro and contemporary design. You can't overlook the 36” wide purple cast iron sink, a testament to the owners' love for all things purple. The custom stained Shou Sugi Ban cabinet doors complement the off-grid retro appliances, adding a touch of rustic charm.

Next, the bathroom beckons. It's a spa-like sanctuary with a 5' slipper tub and a rain shower. The Japanese toilet with a bidet and a moss wall offer a sense of tranquility, a perfect retreat after a long day.

Venture upstairs, and the bedroom welcomes you. The custom-made lift-up storage bed and stained glass bedside sconces exude an air of sophistication, while the loft provides additional space with a built-in desk and nightstand.

Lastly, you can't miss the Catio. This unique feature offers a safe outdoor space for pets, complete with an exterior-accessible maintenance door and floor drain.

In the Purple Heart Manor, every inch is a testament to thoughtfulness, creativity, and attention to detail. It's not just a tiny home on wheels, it's a lifestyle statement.

What made it shine?

The Purple Heart Manor epitomizes luxury and efficiency in tiny home living, with its innovative design features like a W roof for rainwater collection and an 8' tall arched door with stained glass, blending aesthetics with functionality. Inside, the manor boasts high-end amenities and clever use of space, including a luxurious bathroom with a 5' slipper tub and a kitchen with off-grid appliances, alongside a living room and bedroom that exude comfort and elegance. It's equipped with solar power, hydronic in-floor radiant heating, and a tankless water heater, showcasing its utility and environmental consciousness, a combination that earned it the Most Out of the Ordinary award.
