    I agree, about 400 ft for two people a cat and a giant dog, however I still am dreaming about my tiny art studio. stairs on this one I could not get down with no rails, but I really like this guys stuff.

    It would make much more sense to eliminate the need for a wheelchair inside the tiny home (or motorhome for that matter) Leaving enough space to actually maneuver a wheelchair kind of defeats the purpose and efficiency of the tiny homes. It would be relatively easy to design either a powered or manual lift system which would function kinda like a gantry crane. Just leave your chair at the door.
