$500 Fuel Storage Tank Shelter Gives Me an Idea

I’ve been a big fan of underground homes since I first picked up a copy of How To Build An Underground House by Malcolm Wells. While going completely underground is ideal for a shelter it presents some issues for a home.  An underground home works better when it can balance natural light, fresh air, and the thermal mass of the ground […]

Gerald’s Prospector’s Cabin

Thanks for sending the photos Gerald! What a great idea to build the house in the garage ahead of time – I guess you can do that when the house is just 12’x12′. The idea of pre-building the roof on the ground especially makes a lot of sense. It’s much safer to do that kind of tricky work on […]

Jeff’s Cabin & Greenhouse

A few years back Jeff sent me a link to a tiny house he had built as a place to stay while building his larger home. He finished his larger home, but his original tiny house still get used by guests. But Jeff still needed some space in the garden for tools, his mower, greenhouse. So […]

Handmade Forest House in Oregon

Brian Schulz shares his tiny home with Kirsten Dirksen. It’s a Japanese design inspired timber frame home tucked into a temperate rain forest. It sits on a 14′ x 16′ footprint and is made from locally found and salvaged materials. For example, he salvaged lumber from trees that had come down in the wintertime floods. He’d collect these […]

Pico Dwelling – Micro Apartment in Seattle

The Pico Dwelling is a 182 square foot micro apartment in Seattle.  It’s the home and creation of Steve Sauer, an engineer with experience designing aircraft interiors for Boeing. The original space was a storage unit in a basement of a 100+ year old building. About ten years ago Steve bought the room as a storage unit but […]

The Advocate Tiny House Project

The Advocate Tiny House will be created through crowdsourced collaboration. In other words you can help design it, and the Advocate Tiny House team will build it. When the house is complete they’ll use it to share the world of tiny house living with others. The finished house will be available for touring, traveling, classroom learning, workshops, rental, […]
