Eric’s Prefab Micro House

Eric, one of my readers, sent me some photos of a tiny house project he’s been prototyping. The design began as a disaster relief shelter but in the end didn’t quite meet his initial goals. It did turn out to be a clever way to build a small building so in that regard is a […]

Lightweight Tiny House Concept

One of my regular readers, Grant, sent me this design challenge. I have a lot of personal interest in it because I’ve been day dreaming of building a small lightweight tiny house for taking my family (Julia, Katie, and me) on short road trips.

Tiny House Panel System – Update

I’m extremely close to publishing the free plans and a detailed ebook for this tiny house panel system.

This seems like a pretty good idea since that project is really about getting the most value from the least amount of space. Initially I was thinking this only meant square footage but it […]

Bungalow in a Box

I stumbled on this tiny house kit builder while looking at YouTube a while back. Bungalow in a Box builds panel-frame kits that setup in a day or two. You build the foundation and they deliver the panels to your site ready to lift into place. The video on YouTube shows one being erected in […]
