The Acorn is small, even by tiny house standards. Many of the tiny houses we report on nowadays, especially those hailing from North America, are anything but tiny.

The Acorn is small, even by tiny house standards

Backcountry Tiny Homes bucks this trend with a compact model that measures just 16 ft (4.8 m)-long, including its deck. The Acorn is based on a double-axle trailer and clad in a mixture of tongue and groove and cedar, with corrugated metal accenting. Insulation is Rockwool throughout, rated at R-23 in the roof, R-15 in the walls, and R-30 in the floor (which is about on a par with the Vista Go and Sakura). It's quite light at 6,500 lb (2,948 kg), so should be relatively easy to tow. Visitors enter via the deck area, which has enough space for a couple of chairs.

Backcountry Tiny Homes There's also a folding dining table, as well as quite a bit of storage space squeezed in. The kitchen has an electric two-burner cooktop, fridge/freezer, sink, cabinetry and a built-in vacuum cleaning system, so you just plug the hose into the wall.
