Dome Lady by Bev Magennis

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, there’s always something better. Here’s a unique house that will probably never be duplicated – but possibly emulated. This 18-foot tall dome home was built by artist Bev Magennis. It’s located in remote Apache Creek, New Mexico and serves as a tiny guest space on a larger 10-arce […]

Travis’s Tiny House Tour

I ran across this tiny house project on YouTube posted by travis162002. The first video is a tour of his completed house and the other is a construction slideshow. It’s based on a Tumbleweed Lusby with a couple of nice modifications. Instead of using lap siding he used cedar board & batten siding. He also built […]

Cabin in Alaska

Rob Fisk sent me these photos of a tiny 8′ x 12′ cabin he and three friends just finished building up near Dillingham, Alaska. Here’s what Rob told me: I went up in March with 3 friends, dug out the snow, built it, insulated it, and made it cozy in 2-weeks for under $2,000. Two […]

Jeremy’s Tiny House

It’s always exciting for me to run across a new tiny house project. Somehow this one stayed off my radar until today. It’s a Tumbleweed built by a fellow named Jeremy in Indiana. On his website he says he’s planning on selling this one to help finance building a tiny house for himself. He’s posted photos […]

Prepping for Project 31

Ryo Chijiiwa is prepping for a 31-day isolation experiment. Ryo has 60-arces of raw land in Northern California where he’s built a tiny off-grid cabin. As you can see from this recent photo the cabin still needs some finishing touches, but I don’t think Ryo is too concerned at the moment about appearances. I suspect he’s […]

Secure Tower

Recently I came across this curious little building via Dornob. It’s a design by the architects at Peter Gluck and Partners. The building is a cube, measuring 20-feet on each side. The interior space mesures 720 square feet. It’s not a house, but serves as a library for a private collection of 10,000 books on […]

Off-Grid Cabin Tour

Ryo Chijiiwa’s cabin (a.k.a. Hut 2.1) is still very much under construction, as you can see in the video tour below, but despite the cold weather Ryo has continued to make steady progress on his tiny cabin in Northern California. You might notice he’s approached the construction a little differently than most. His cabin is […]

Update on Dan’s Tiny House

Dan built this tiny house for his mom and it’s almost ready for her to move in. There are just a few plumbing and electrical details to finish up. The interior is unlike any tiny house I’ve seen so far. It has counters and cabinets along both walls, like a galley kitchen. At one end […]

Tiny House For Sale in Kansas City

Ron and Crystal are selling this newly constructed tiny house via craigslist. You can see photos of the building process on Picasa. The house is located in Kansas City and they are selling it for $22,500. It’s built on a stout trailer that measures about 23-feet in length. It features a tankless water heater, RV […]

Patrick’s Pallet House on Wheels

Back in September I reported on a pallet house being built by a fellow in Lakeland, Florida named Patrick. He’s using discarded shipping pallets for the walls and has framed the roof with conventional lumber. This was a very wise choice and should make the roof much safer. At every opportunity he’s scrounging low cost and […]
