One Tree House

This is the tale of a small home being built from one tree that fell nearby during a powerful storm. The tree was perfectly healthy too, no rot, so it was sad to see it taken down by the storm – but Nancy made good use of it. With the help of a logger the […]

Sandpiper Caravan

Outfitted as shown here this little caravan would work nicely as a home office or backyard retreat – or as a tiny home with an outhouse located elsewhere. With the addition of a simple bathroom and sink it would make a very nice micro home or guest house. It was built by Honrby Island Caravans […]

Jamison’s Tiny House

Jamison recently completed his tiny house and made it available for overnight stays in Omaha, Nebraska. He started building it in July of 2012 and steadily made progress. Inside you’ll find a sleeping loft with a queen size bed, a built-in sofa that folds down to a custom full sized bed, a kitchen with a small […]

Christopher & Merete’s Tiny House

You might be familiar with the movie called TINY. It was produced by Christopher Smith & Merete Mueller – but you may not have seen photos of their tiny home. It’s just 127 square feet and located in Colorado. They’d never built anything like it before, so the whole project was quite an adventure. Christopher and Merete […]

Revolution and the WikiHouse Construction Set

A paradigm shifting change is sweeping the globe and shaking the foundation of the current establishment – people are empowering people. At some point a critical mass of innovators and early adopters will force the establishment out of the driver’s seat and put the meek back at the helm. This sort of revolution won’t happen […]

FOUNDhouse – A Prefab Microhouse

Expanding on the WikiHouse open source construction set, FOUNDhouse is a tiny 150 square foot home design made of CNC-milled plywood that snaps together like a puzzle by hand without any metal fasteners. The creators, architecture students Patrick Beseda and Lacy Graham, have added a few items to the basic WikiHouse system to make it more habitable. […]

The $64,000 Tiny House Question

I ran across a note written by Aaron Maret, who recently built a tiny house (pictured above). He’s selling the house and asking $64,000 for it. On his blog he says that he’s received some criticism for that price and makes a very good case for why he’s priced it at that amount. I don’t want […]

Decadently Primitive Tiny Tent Living

Recently Kirsten Dirksen visited Glen and Gerry at their unusual home in northern California. It’s a tiny tent cluster of three tents they  connected with a series of decks and paths. Mostly they live outside, cook outside, and bathe outside. The temperate climate of California makes that possible. When they first bought the land their […]

Tiny House Raffles & Other Fund Raising Ideas

The students at Hilltop Montessori School in Brattleboro, Vermont were given the opportunity to build a tiny house. The house was then raffled-off which raised $17,000 for the school. The whole project was so successful that the school is planning another tiny house raffle. The fund raising idea came from a school parent, Chad Farnum, […]
