Some commenters on Amazon pointed out that there is no window or door on the bedroom and there is no room for a flat screen TV. Some customers complained about only seeing a few pictures from a few angles only, which is not enough to buy a home. They’ve pointed out that the shower unit is not for people with limited mobility.
It is also important to note that extra costs come with ordering this tiny house. There is a flat fee for freight shipping at $4500.
