A few years ago we featured the Aurora, a tiny house concept with two large slide-outs that transform the house from a street legal 8.5-feet wide to over 15-feet wide when parked. ZeroSquared, the Canadian design firm behind the Aurora, now has the tiny house in full production.
While measuring only 26-feet, the Aurora offers 374-square-feet of living space in its expanded state. The tiny home has a layout more similar to an urban apartment than the typical trailer-based tiny house.
The exterior of the Aurora includes a maintenance-free corrugated seam metal roof and Smart Board exterior cladding. The house was built using structural insulated panels (SIPs), providing R-26 insulation in the walls and R-42 insulation in the roof.
The main floor bedroom has a queen Murphy bed that converts into an office, plus there is a small storage loft overhead.
On the opposite side of the bedroom is the living room with built-in entertainment center and room for a full size couch. Pine wood paneling was used throughout the interior.
The kitchen features full-size upper and lower kitchen cabinets, a pantry, solid oak or birch countertops, stainless steel range with whisper-quiet exhaust hood, and a full size 30″ wide stainless refrigerator. Next to the kitchen is a dining area with expandable table.
The bathroom is located at the rear of the home and includes a 32″x48″ shower with sliding glass door and a flush toilet.
The home is powered by an RV-style 50amp hookup, but it can be upgraded to be totally off-grid with a solar power system and composting toilet.
