SALT LAKE CITY — Pioneering tiny home manufacturer, Wheelhaus, unveiled its newest model, Ark Haus. The Ark Haus is a modern, minimalist tiny home designed to offer maximum functionality and comfort in a compact space. At 400 square feet, this tiny home is for those who are looking to downsize or simplify their lives. The exterior of the Ark Haus is sleek and modern, with clean lines and a minimalist design that is both attractive and functional. 

The Ark Haus features one bedroom plus a loft space, accessed by a set of stairs, which can be used as a second sleeping area or additional storage. The bedroom is located on the main floor and is large enough to accommodate a queen-size bed, wardrobe, and other essential furniture.

The living room has large windows that let in plenty of natural light and provide stunning views of the surrounding landscape. The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, stove, oven, and plenty of storage space for food and cookware. The bathroom includes a shower, toilet, and sink, and there is also a separate area for a washer and dryer.
"The Ark Haus is a beautifully designed and thoughtfully planned tiny home that offers all the amenities of a larger home in a compact and efficient space," said Wheelhaus Founder Jamie Mackay in a press release. "It’s perfect for those who want to simplify their lives and embrace a more minimalist lifestyle, without sacrificing comfort or style."

Another newer model, the Lookout, offers a spacious covered deck that allows for protection from the elements. The Lookout provides a stronger connection to the outdoor elements through the use of energy-efficient windows that allow extra light into the room. The Lookout provides the space of other Wheelhaus tiny homes models with the ability to be modular. This tiny home sleeps 4 adults and is designed as a 400 sq. ft. home but could be a modular design.

Wheelhaus creates a sense of size and space with floorplans on a smaller footprint.  The high-ceilings, oversized windows and eight-foot doors featured throughout all models make the homes feel larger. Less is more: less building materials, less square footage, less waste. Craftsmanship, materials, and design go into every Wheelhaus home. By utilizing more windows, Wheelhaus homes bring the outdoors in providing lots of natural light. With multiple entry points, Wheelhaus homes can be installed on almost any site configuration. Adding an outdoor deck can double your indoor/outdoor living space providing a large entertainment and barbeque area.

Tiny homes are more affordable than traditional homes because they require fewer building materials and less space to build, resulting in lower construction costs.

The smaller size of tiny homes also means lower utility bills and maintenance costs, as they require less energy to heat and cool, and fewer repairs.

Wheelhaus’ ability to build in a climate-controlled environment, order materials in large quantities, minimize waste, and work 12 months a year without interruptions allows them to provide a superior cost per square foot comparable to onsite construction.
