A Spotlight on The Caboose
December 1, 2017
Need a little more information on the Caboose before you make your decision to buy? Well, you’ve come to the right place. I recently took a few more specific photos of the Caboose to give you an idea of all the details entailed in this Wheelhaus Tiny Home. Call this a model spotlight and the Caboose IS THE model!
Walking into one of the Caboose’s at Fireside Resort, I was taken aback by how large this tiny home really was. Having mainly worked behind the scenes at Wheelhaus, I had not had the opportunity to experience it first hand. BUT WOW! This is it!
The siding of the Caboose that I visited was a rustic, aged wood that really gave this tiny home some great character. Parts of it also had oxidized metal siding that added to the character. Both the wood and metal gave this tiny home a rustic, Western feel. This is probably one of my favorite parts…but there’s so much more!
The living space was roomy, with warm finishes and solid, quality wood. Along with the deck and roof, the entrance was inviting and bright. The kitchen had everything you needed to host a small gathering, including a dishwasher, microwave, fridge, and stove. The quartz kitchen counter was gorgeous! The ceiling had beautiful wood beams and simple, yet supple lighting.
The hallway to the loft, bathroom, and main bedroom was bright and spacious. The trim on the windows and along the wall is made out of pine.
The steps up to the loft were also made of pine, and the loft was much bigger than expected. In fact, the loft was huge and could easily fit two beds! The height of the loft would be a challenge for anyone over 6’5” but you could still easily move around in there. Lighting was also great, with several windows on the side and end of the Caboose.
The bathroom was also much bigger than I would expect. It had gorgeous stone tile walls in the shower with glass panes and a “waterfall” type showerhead. The floor was also made of stone tile. The storage in the bathroom both in the small linen closet and under the sink was adequate. Within this particular model, the water heater was stored in the closet, however, an on-demand heater would take up less space, providing you with even more storage. A large window also provided plenty of light.
The bedroom was more than big enough for a king-sized bed (even long enough for a California King!) The door was a beautiful wood sliding door on a unique sliding system that was both artistic and functional. Ample lighting consisted of two small lamps atop wooden bed stands, two narrow windows, and a large bedroom window. While I did not test out the bed, the room was more than inviting for a good night’s sleep.
At no point in time did I ever feel like I was in a tiny home. Yet this beauty is only 400SQ FT and honestly has everything you need! To be frank, my photos do not do this Wheelhaus tiny home justice! You really just need to experience the Caboose for yourself at Fireside Resort!
