Built by Colorado-based Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses for a couple from Kansas, the Ad Astra offers several custom features including a serving window in the kitchen and a terrarium built into the storage stairs.
The exterior is clad in cedar lap siding and recycled corrugated wainscot. A large three-leaf fold-down deck wraps around from the front door to the kitchen’s serving window. At the rear of the home is a large storage compartment for outdoor gear. A sapphire blue full lite entry door leads into the home.
The interior of the 24-foot Ad Astra is based on the Pequod, including its U-shaped kitchen and nesting dining room table. The table has two storage cubes for seats, a bench, and a 48″ table with a drop leaf on either side.
The kitchen features a hand-troweled gray concrete countertop, white cabinets, and a white undermount sink with gooseneck faucet. Rocky Mountain also built a custom pantry with pull-out shelves on the bottom.
Throughout the home are white painted shiplap walls that Rocky Mountain milled in-house, hand-scraped bamboo flooring, and pine trim and window boxes stained to match the flooring.
In the living room is a custom 6-foot couch with storage below the seat and behind the backrest. The clients have a gecko and cat, so Rocky Mountain built a terrarium and a litter box cubby with passive exterior vent into the storage stairs.
The Ad Astra has two bedroom lofts. The main loft has a sunken queen-size mattress area and six storage cubbies in the floor. The second loft was built using 2″x2″ steel and blue stained beetle kill flooring. It can fit a queen-size mattress or be used as a flexible space.
The bathroom is bright with its white walls, wainscot, tile, and fixtures. A strip of glass tile on top of the wainscot adds some color. There is an all-in-one vanity/sink, composting toilet, and shower/tub combo. The shower walls are white ceramic subway tiles with dark gray grout that match the floor tiles.
The Ad Astra was approximately $73,000. For more information about this tiny house, please contact Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses.
