The Painted Home Co.’s retiree-friendly Baby Boomer

Asheville is indisputable the tiny house capital of North Carolina, home to longtime favorites Brevard and Wishbone as well as a number of newer players like Aneides and Nanostead. The most recent entrant to the area’s “cottage” industry is The Painted Home Co., a furniture shop / contractor located in nearby Hendersonville. Their first tiny house, the Baby Boomer, was designed with retirees in mind and features a motorized elevator bed so there are no stairs to climb. The bed hovers above the living room sofa during the day and rests just above it at night, and the flat screen TV is placed high enough that you can watch it either way. All that’s in the back of the Baby Boomer; the starboard side holds a kitchenette and the front door, while to port there’s a dining bar and an impressive bank of cabinets (complete with fridge and washer/dryer) facing the entryway. The small but serviceable bathroom (with flush toilet, vanity sink, and corner shower stall) is under a storage loft in front. No word on price, but it seems to be for sale; if you’re interested, you can contact The Painted Home Co. at (828) 577-1799 or through their Facebook page:
