2016 was a fabulous year for inventive tiny houses of all stripes, and 2017 is already off to a strong start. Here, we catch you up on the latest standout projects you should know.

Craftsman-style lovers, we got the tiny house for you. Designed by Handcrafted Movement, the same studio behind the Pinterest-ready “Artisan Retreat,” the 290-square-foot “Urban Craftsman” shows off deep blue wall paneling and herringbone floors, not to mention a curbed oak butcher block countertop and teeny breakfast bar, and geometric open shelving. That’ll be $72,000, please.

Well, this is new and cool: The entire front facade of this 28-foot-long modern tiny house is covered with commercial-grade climbing panels, so its owners can rock climb anywhere they go. Designed by Tiny Heirloom, the home features a garage-style door opening it up to the outside, plus a built-in seating area and lofted office/lounge.

It’s hard to find a more meticulously thought out and beautifully executed tiny house than the “Golden” from American Tiny House. Functionally, you get a bright loft over a relatively spacious living room, stairs with custom cubbies (including one for a record player), and a two-seat bar office in the kitchen. Stylistically, there’s trendy grey cabinetry, a farmhouse sink, plus herringbone details and planters on the exterior.

It’s not everyday we see a sleek modern tiny house that’s fully accessible as well, but the Wheel Pad does just that. Intended as a wheelchair-friendly secondary dwelling, the 200-square-footer features a ramp access, and an open living area with a bed and desk on one end and a bathroom with a composting toilet, sink, and shower on the other. The Wheel Pad is available for purchase for $50,000, or for rent at $1,500 per month.

The Trinity tiny house by Alabama Tiny Homes looks pretty typical from the outside, but the interior layout probably isn’t what you’re used to—in a good way. Instead of a staircase that goes along the length of the dwelling, this tiny house fits one along the width, making room for a spacious living area with a lofted bed over it. It almost feels like a typical full-size open-plan apartment, with a kitchen counter overlooking the living area.
