For lovers of clean, efficient, modern design with an eye toward outside living, ClearSpace Homes has come up with a few designs to appeal to people who want a tiny house. ClearSpace has been selling their prefab homes in the Austin, Texas area for several years and some parts of each design can be customized by the buyer. Their homes are offered in several colors and the interior can include reclaimed or new materials. A customized ClearSpace home will run about $125 per square foot which does not include site work, the foundation or shipping.
The first of their tiny homes is the ClearSpace Casita. This 432 square foot home includes a studio space that can accommodate a murphy bed/storage wall, work area, or built in display/book shelf. There is also space for a compact kitchen, a 3/4 bath and a generous sleeping/storage room. The best feature of the Casita is the protective enclosure that allows the owner to enjoy the outdoors. The interior space of the home has sliding glass doors which can be opened to allow for cross ventilation and there is a skylight above the loft. The base price of the Casita is $51,240.
The next ClearSpace home is the SmallSpace. This design is 486 square feet and contains one bedroom and a full bathroom. A small deck can be built across the front and various forms of siding can be ordered including galvalume, cement board or wood siding. The SmallSpace’s base price is $61,530.
Another of their designs, the Studio, is a showroom and the company’s office. This module is 13×14 feet and has an integrated porch and shade eave which has been designed for optimal sun exposure during various times of the year. Each of the ClearSpace homes include the following options: IKEA kitchen cabinetry, appliances and fixtures; Kohler tubs and toilets; bamboo flooring; and thermal windows and doors. While ClearSpace is currently focused on the Austin market, they do want to expand and sell their prefabs in the rest of the country.
