Golley Houses Introduces Tiny House Loft with 8 Feet of Real Stand-up Headroom
Golley Houses provides tiny house enthusiasts with design options for 8 feet of stand-up headroom in the loft.
Decatur, GA (January 25, 2021) – Golley Houses, the manufacturer of modular, environmentally friendly tiny house flat-pack kits, is offering tiny house enthusiasts design options that provide 8 feet of stand-up headroom in the loft.
“One of the biggest complaints of tiny houses is the lack of headroom in the loft space. People often love the idea of a tiny house until they realize they have to crawl out of bed on their knees,” said Frank Golley, founder and designer of Golley Houses. “We wanted to provide tiny house homeowners and rental property managers with real stand-up headroom even for adults who are six-feet plus.”
The finished height of the Golley Houses is in excess of 16 feet, which allows for up to 8 feet of standing room from the floor to the peak of the ceiling. Side walls in the loft are up to four feet, which is higher than the average 3’6” vertical loft height found in many tiny homes.
Golley Houses are designed to be built on a foundation, not wheels. As a result road limits for trailer dimensions, which are often restricted to 13’6” in height, do not apply.
The basic Golley tiny house flat-pack kit is built from four “rings” each made up of five panels, plus panels for the end walls, totaling 30 ring-shaped structural insulated panels (SIPs). SIPs are one of the most airtight, green and well-insulated building systems available. The “ring” design is an alternative to traditional stick framing construction. Each “ring” of components creates an additional four feet of space. Two or three modules creates another room. Developed to provide a cost-effective tiny house/accessory dwelling unit (ADU), Golley Houses offers numerous sizes and styles and can be constructed by three to four people in as little as one to two days.
The loft material package can be purchased as a planned add-on to the basic Golley House Flat Pack Kit. Other planned add-ons include a window and door package, kitchen cabinet layout, bathroom layout with toilet and shower fixtures, cut sheet for materials needed to build different exterior style treatments, and an interior materials list for finishing the interior in several styles such as farmhouse, rustic, arts and craftsman, contemporary and Tudor.
Along with pre-cut panels for the walls, roof and floor, the Golley tiny house flat-pack kit also includes all the splines, precut lumber, fasteners, caulk and foam sealant required for the build. A foundation dimension drawing is included with the kit. A foundation must be installed prior to assembly. Local building codes will determine the type of foundation used.
“It doesn’t have to take weeks and months to build a tiny house, nor does it have to cost tens of thousands of dollars,” said Golley. “A Golley House provides a great living environment for people who want an affordable housing option, but it is also a solution for homeowners who just need a little extra space. A tiny house with a loft makes a great home office, in-law suite, guest house, rental house, art studio, backyard homeschool classroom, exercise room or anything else you might need extra space for. The additional loft sleeping space is also ideal for people who want to earn extra income by renting vacation cabins through a service like Airbnb.”
