The tiny home movement has been somewhat discriminatory.

Its ingeniously designed spaces and premium finishes have thus far been the domain of couples who want to declutter their lifestyles and move out into the sticks somewhere. But what about the off-gridding family?

Alpine Tiny Homes values families. Especially families of four. Their Brown Bear comes with a lofted queen bed and two lofted singles with modular desks for the kiddos.

The solar panels and a tankless water heater keep the abode totally self-functioning. And the quartz countertops and windows keep it clean-lined and well-lit. All jokes aside, the Brown Bear is a smart way to inch your way into a vacation property: buy the land and the Brown Bear, and then slowly build up from that.

Just don’t expect too much peace and quiet.

But that’s on you, Dad.
