Cozy Bed in Tony’s Hornby Island Caravan

External image

As far as the layout, there was careful thought given by Tony about his possessions- what to keep, what to get rid of, and of the things he kept, where they should go. There were specific spots built for specific things- lot’s of open storage under the bed for his many instruments, cd shelves, book shelves, a shelf for magazine folders for his papers and so on.” - Tiny House Blog

1948 Spartan Manor Restoration

External image

My wife and I were living in Santiago, Chile when most of the work was done and communicated by email and Skype to get our influence into the design. This is a 1948 Spartan Manor that was pretty much just a shell when we purchased it.During the restoration we even incorporated some old furniture that we had to be built into the cabinetry. The interior is completely new, and we requested a design that would allow us to dry camp for a week at a time…” - Rick Zabel

Steve’s Thailand Dome

Steve Areen, a world traveler who has been visiting remote locations around the world, decided to put down a few roots in northeast Thailand. These roots grew into one of the most beautiful dome homes you may ever see. This work of art (that only cost $9,000 to build) sits in the middle of a mango farm that belongs to Steve’s friend Hajjar Gibran.” – Kent

Gregory’s Homeless Homes Project

The Homeless Homes Project, which features tiny structures built out of illegally dumped garbage and industrial waste are becoming more than an environmental stance or garbage art. These little homes are fast becoming a collaborative project between different groups who want to help shelter people who live on the streets.” – Chirstina

Frontier Fortress

External image

A product of their environment and culture, Frontier Fortress is building with strength, durability, and sustainability in mind. Several functions set these Tiny Homes apart from the crowd: most importantly their use of big, strong, posts and beams. The goal was to design and build a Tiny House that combines these elements in an artistic approach – they’ve taken the craft of building with big timbers and joined it with modern architectural flair.” - Noah Hedges

MorHaus

The trusses are shipped pre-cut and pre-drilled. Then they are bolted together on-site. The MorHaus method locates a truss every 4 feet with panels that are used for floor, wall and ceiling/roof structure between each truss for enclosed sections and a straight forward deck framing for porch sections. This allows for a high degree of flexibility in the system as any number of enclosed or porch sections – in any configuration – can be used.” - Tiny House Blog

Tiny Cottages in Iceland

External image

On my way back from Copenhagen, I stayed for a few days in cold and dark Iceland. This fascinating and stark island in the North Atlantic is fast becoming one of the top places to visit in Europe — with or without Eyjafjallajökull blowing it’s top. Reykjavik is stylish and easy to get around in and the rest of the country is a mix of mountains, seaside, towering cliffs and, of course, hot springs like the famous Blue Lagoon. It’s interesting how the Icelandic tourism industry has turned this essentially inhospitable land into a place that is comfortable to stay…” - Christina

Little Yellow House Update

External image

It’s been a year now since I moved to the bay area and thought you might consider running an update now that I’ve been living tiny for a year. It’s tiny for two as of 10 months ago!Everything is still going beautifully. It’s amazing how big a tiny house can feel when you’ve built it around what’s important to you. It’s truly just like the average house, but smaller and exactly the way you want! I actually felt I could have gone with a shorter trailer when I first moved in, but now with my boyfriend living here too it’s perfect.” - Ella Jenkins

Retreat Communities with Tiny Living Accommodations

External image

For the new year, I’m planning on taking some time away from the computer to contemplate the next few months, practice some yoga and do some quiet meditation. While searching around for a retreat location, I kept running into meditation retreats and centers that had some sweet tiny houses, yurts and cabins for rent. Each of them are also located in some beautiful locations. Staying at one of these meditation or yoga retreats is not only a good way to cleanse your body and soul, but you can also get some great tiny house and small space ideas.” - Christina

Little House in the Potato Field

External image

This is our 24 x 14 foot shed being pulled up the narrow mountain road. It is paved, barely, and about the width of one good truck. The final resting place was a former potato field (1940-1950) and our little house was dropped in place with minimal damage. The house was placed on a gravel pad which we later reinforced with concrete footers and 4 x 6s.” - Caroline Stilwell

Crafty Camper

Ben Wheeler spotted this camper in a parking lot in Scotts Valley, California on Sunday and thought you might like to see it. The owner wasn’t around so he couldn’t get any interior shots or other info.Ben says, I have been playing a guessing game to try to figure out the reason for that lower window on the door (it seemed to have a curtain over it). Also I would’ve loved to see the colors in the stained glass on the upper door.

Some of you may have seen the article of the little cabin on wheels Kent published on Tiny House Blog May 29th, 2013. Thanks to all who commented on the post. Anyways, that post drew interest from some folks in Portland, Oregon that own and operate according to them, the first tiny house hotel. They contacted me asking if I would consider building another tiny house for their hotel. As mentioned in the previous post, I’m retired and looking for projects to keep me occupied I jumped at the opportunity…” - Hal McClendon
