Road Trip Tiny House Design Concept

From time to time I daydream about taking my family on an extended road trip in a tiny house.  So just for fun, I drew this tiny house design and got a little carried away in the details. I suspect more than a few folks will appreciate some of the ideas here, so I thought […]

Shipping Container Based Remote Cabin Design Concept

The ability to button-up and secure remote cabins helps thwart would-be thieves. Tiny buildings made from shipping containers are naturally easy to secure when left mostly intact. Cutting holes for windows and doors not only opens the home up with natural light, it opens opportunity for break-in. In this design exploration I show how windows […]

Uncut Tiny House Realized

As a result of this exploration we now know that a tiny house that could be built without a saw. The direction I went in is just one way to go too – and I’m certain there are many many more. In fact several folks have commented and contacted me directly suggesting some great improvements. […]

Sawtooth Saltbox

The following is a guest post and house design from one of my regular readers, Craig Moorhouse. As you can see the design isn’t exactly tiny but contains so many great ideas and detail I asked Craig if for permission to share it with you. Thanks again Craig! I sent a handful of Google SketchUp […]

Usonian Inspired Home by Joseph Sandy – Part 2

He also included more information about the design of this tiny living space and details about each ‘room’. Be sure to visit […]

Tiny House with Moving Walls – part 2

In the first round of playing with the idea of moving walls I based the design on a 16′ by 16′ footprint. Since I like challenges I decided to go smaller this time but keep the same requirements of being livable for a happy couple with the occasional visit of another couple for dinner. This […]

Single Hauz

I couldn’t find too many details (like a floor plan) on this tiny house concept from Poland but the pictures say a lot. Basically the idea is that this billboard inspired house could be place almost anywhere and is intended to a single person or couple to live in. I think its a really interesting […]

Design Study – Underground Concrete Pipe Tiny House Concept

A little while back I came across information about a concrete pipe hotel in Austria and blogged on it here. It occurred to me that concrete pipe might make a pretty cool tiny house so over the weekend I drew up this concept. I actually tried to draw it in Google SketchUp but I’m still […]
