Alpine Tiny Homes, the firm behind the aptly-named Tiny Giant, recently completed its biggest model yet. Named the Phoenix on account of it replacing a previous home lost in a fire, the solar-powered dwelling measures a massive 41 ft (12.5 m) long and comprises 410 sq ft (38 sq m) of floorspace.

The Phoenix is based on a triple-axle trailer and its width comes in at 10 ft (3.4 m), which is over the standard legal towing limit in the US, so it won't be towed regularly. Indeed, it's currently installed on the same plot of land that the owners' previous home burnt down on. The exterior is clad in fiber cement and board and batten, and sports a small outdoor shower (a deck area is eventually going to be added too).

Visitors enter into a kitchen area with full-size appliances, including a fridge/freezer, oven, copper sink, and a fair bit of shelving and cupboard space. Nearby lies a fold-down breakfast bar that seats two.

The living room includes a couch
