Tiny Houses - Tiny Home Builders What is a tiny house? A tiny house is a small house that is sized such that it can fit on a trailer. In most areas this means that it can’t be bigger than 8 feet 6 inches wide, 13 feet 6 inches tall, and 40 feet long. Why would I live in a tiny house? For many, the dream of owning their own house is only that, a dream. Another advantage of tiny houses is gained time. Another advantage is that the houses can be moved. Finally, one last reason to living in a tiny house is conservation. Why wouldn’t I just buy an RV? RV’s are great for travel, but not so great to live in. Have more questions? Looking for a house for your dog or maybe just a small project to get you started, take a look at our modernDog dog house.

Small-space bunkbeds for kids: Tiny House Talk blog posed a question, "Do you think it would be comfortable to raise up to four kids in a 2-bedroom home if they're all under the ages of, let's say, 13?" The answer came in four photographs of multi-bed bedrooms, ranging from rustic to sophisticated. It reminded me of a Homes & Gardens of the Northwest story from a few years back about a blended family's beachhouse retreat in Gearhart, which included a pretty cool eight-bed room for the kids. The bunkhouse took up half of the house's two-car garage. The shipshape design had built-in wooden bunk beds, each one outfitted with a nautical wall sconce (with its own switch). "Cheap and cheery was our motto," homeowner Tory Paine said. If you're in the market for bunkbeds, Apartment Therapy's Marketplace has a roundup of 2011 favorites in all price ranges.
Open Trail Homes Open Trail Homes, a new tiny house company has been launched in North Salt Lake, Utah. They currently offer four models from 128 to 320 square feet. All of the homes are built on wheels and the largest measures 12′ x 24′ – which would make it better suited for a semi-permanent installation since special move permits are typically required to move 12-foot wide trailers. All the others could be moved with a full size pickup truck. They are all equipped as RVs with electric & water hookups as well as built-in fresh & waste water tanks. Three of their four models are designed with beds on the lower level and three have additional sleeping/storage space in lofts. I’m very impressed with the packages they’ve put together and suspect this company could become a leader in the tiny homes market.
