Venture into The Rutledge, a meticulously crafted creation by Wind River Tiny Homes. More than a mere diminutive dwelling, this 38-foot-long tiny house captures the essence of a traditional home in an efficiently compact form. Perfect for families, those who love to entertain, or anyone seeking to enjoy a life of understated luxury, The Rutledge exemplifies the future of small, yet spacious, living.
The Rutledge warmly welcomes you with its open living area. Here, the possibilities are endless: you can place your favored furniture, set up a desk for work, or even incorporate built-ins, handcrafted by Wind River Furniture. The vast expanse of pre-finished hardwood floors underfoot and the painted shiplap or smooth walls, customizable with various paint and stain options, enhance the living area's charm.
On the main floor of the house, you'll find the master suite. It exudes the feel of a spacious sanctuary with vaulted ceilings, enhancing the airiness within the limited footprint. Optional built-in wardrobes offer plenty of storage space without affecting the room's openness. The suite features a full-size tub or a large shower, allowing you to unwind at your leisure. Notably, the Rutledge retains ADA compliance should you choose to forgo the additional sleeping loft.
The charm of the Rutledge lies in its adaptability. If your needs or preferences change, the additional sleeping loft located above the opposing end of the master suite can serve as a cozy guestroom or a quaint personal retreat. With open storage stair or ladder access and a knee wall for added privacy, this loft is just as inviting as the rest of the house.
Passing through the fiberglass full-light doors that can be custom colored to suit your style, you will find yourself in the heart of the house - the kitchen. The Rutledge offers a well-equipped kitchen, where you can prepare meals on the durable butcher block counter. The drop-in sink is available in either stainless or composite material, complemented by brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, or black faucet and cabinet hardware, providing you with the choice to customize to your aesthetic preferences.
Follow the seamless flow from the kitchen to the full bathroom. The comfort of a tub or shower with a tile surround, and a round-bowl gravity flush toilet. There's ample room with a 36-inch vanity niche and the option of a pocket or swing door for privacy.
The mudroom doubles as a back entry and houses a useful utility closet. This flexible space offers the potential to accommodate a stackable washer/dryer unit, adding another layer of convenience.
The Rutledge's shell features Tuff-Rib metal roofing with a single-pitch roofline, although alternative rooflines are available to suit different aesthetic tastes. The house's durability and weather resistance are ensured with ZIP System water-resistant structural panels serving as sheathing. All windows are fiberglass, and double-paned, ensuring optimal insulation and durability.
From its meticulously designed interiors to its robust structure, The Rutledge by Wind River Tiny Homes is not just a home; it's a living experience - one where comfort, utility, and luxury blend beautifully within a compact space. Whether you are a family, an entertainer, or someone seeking a downsized lifestyle without compromising on luxury, The Rutledge is a great choice.
In our opinion, The Rutledge offers a unique balance between the practicality of small living and the luxury of a full-sized home. The thoughtful design considerations, from the spacious master suite to the fully equipped kitchen, are impressive and accommodate a range of needs and lifestyles. The added versatility of customization options truly sets it apart, allowing homeowners to personalize their spaces according to their tastes.
