The Halcyon is a customizable tiny home on wheels built by the Fritz Tiny homes company based out of Alberta Canada. Uniquely designed through years of experience of working with customers to find the right design for them. Versatile enough to fulfill almost anyone's tiny home dreams, and yet stocked full with all the bells and whistles. Let's dive in to see what makes the Halcyon sparkle.
First glance, you'll notice the exterior is eye catching. The angles and lines used to draw the eye to it's attractive features. The large windows place symmetrically makes the home feel balanced. The coloring of the materials chosen compliment each other and frame in the entrance which is a nice feature on any house. If you didn't know it, the natural looking wood is actually a metal material used. The entire exterior is all metal, which virtually allows for a worry-free and maintenance free exterior. A big plus on a tiny home!
As you step inside the front door, you're greeted by the warmth of the natural woods, yet with an extremely comfortable homey feel with the neutrals, grays and white walls. Directly to the left of the entry is the coat closet, with storage for all your seasonal coats that pull out for easy access, plus drawer storage for keys, organizational to-do items, and anything else you need to quickly put away. Plenty of additional room for a shoe storage rack and a welcome mat so you can make your entry comfortable and versatile. You will notice the flat panel walls that look elegant with the clean lines and smooth face.
As you enter the kitchen, you'll notice the custom concrete eating nook or work space. Seating for two at the bar top and plenty of storage below. The L shaped cabinetry really makes the most of the storage space, but also lets you have more space for food prep and cooking. Full Stove top and Oven combo range, with an over-the-range microwave, helping keep more appliances off the counters.
The storage hutch opposite the kitchen adds tons of helpful storage to keep your whole tiny home clutter free. Plus, storage in every nook and cranny you can think of, from the stairtrends, hidden spice rack, and more. LED dimmable lighting throughout the house allows you to be in control of the mood and feel of your home.
The bathroom is easily accessed through a double door roller system so you don't feel cramped getting in and out. A custom designed sink to allow for even more storage below in the cabinet, plus it looks very sleek. Plus with an incredible medicine cabinet that's about a foot deep means you won't run out of storage for your bathroom toiletries. Full tub inside the bath / shower combo, means you can actually take a relaxing bath without feeling cramped.
The loft is accessed by stairs that are comfortable and safe. They've created the unique "split loft" that allows you to have ample headroom in the landing area when you get out of bed, and doesn't take living space below as it's directly above the utility room. A full wardrobe with a hanging rod, and enough drawers (extra deep!) and storage that will help keep everything organized, and out of sight until you need it. Extra storage in the headboard, and enough ledge space to decorate your space to make it feel like your own.
The living room is at the end of the tiny home on wheels, with an intentionally large open space to be used for what ever your needs are. The living room is brightened up by the incredibly large picture frame windows, allow plenty of light, and making the space feel even bigger than it is. The Living room is considered the flex space for open room to accomodate all your needs, like a place to do yoga, family hangout room, and more. Plenty of room for a couch, and the one featured shows a very neat bunkbed couch! See the full gallery of Halcyon 01.
It's hard to tell from the pictures, but the bones of the build are just as solid, with a full thermal envelope built to withstand the cold or heat, along with best building practices.
Fritz Tiny Homes has taken the already amazing Halcyon 01 to the next level with the introduction of the Halcyon 02, which features an added flex room. With this 9' x 8'6" extra space, you'll have the flexibility to live comfortably in a small footprint, no matter what life throws your way. The flex room seamlessly integrates into the floor plan, making the Halcyon 02 even more practical and versatile. Check out the full gallery of Halcyon 02 here!
It's pretty clear to see that tons of time has been poured into the Halcyon even before hammer is lifted. The design and forethought really shines through as a strength of the Fritz team. From the inside out, the Halcyon tiny home on wheels has been given plenty of TLC and attention to details.
