Seperated means thermal bridge.
In colder areas this could become a problem.

    I have built in Truckee ca(58 below zero record) for 30 years i know all about cold ,Please note that the perimeter wall go to the top of floor joists.This eliminates the typical rim joist.There is only 2 1/2 inches of horizontal area that isn’t insulated and that area is solid wood.The” Abode” is incredibly efficient. Thanks Mike

    Separated can also be a solution to a problem. Many people have commented about problems with mold and water buildup in tiny homes. Having the toilet and shower separate from the main home isolates the problem and the repairs.

    The home could be moved on its own and (in a worst case) the bathroom abandoned, using an outhouse or port-a-potty. It also makes the main building lighter if you wanted to tow it for a camping vacation and leave the bathroom behind.
