A former homeless man released the blueprints for an incredible off-grid solar home for only $2,000 When misfortune strikes it comes in threes. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet, and other times it’s an excuse to innovate. Fifteen years ago, Lamar Alexander lost everything—his wife, health and home, forcing him into a truck-camper living situation that would set a foundation for one of the most affordable and functional mini-home designs on the market.

A Texas design student built a tiny house to shelter his broke student ass and live debt-free         Design student Joel Weber is a third-year university student who found that living near campus was unaffordable, costing upwards of $800 per month in rent. In Texas, the average tuition at Weber’s university, the University of Texas at Austin, is around $9,794 per year, resulting in the average student having a debt of $22,600 in Texas. To live near his university without paying overpriced fares, Weber built his own mobile tiny home to shelter his broke student ass well after he graduates. The almost 13.5 sq. metre house costs $20,000 and was built with the help of a volunteer carpenter and an electrician. The main floor has a sitting area, kitchen, workspace, countertop, sink, and shower.

Bright tiny house feels like a modern urban loft space One of the remarkable things about the tiny house movement is how many different and creatively designed tiny homes we are seeing nowadays, spanning the spectrum from rustic to ultra-modern, from high-end specimens to ones built almost entirely from salvaged materials. Indeed, there is more than one way to build a tiny, and Lancaster, Pennsylvania's Liberation Tiny Homes is offering one small dwelling that does a few things differently than the rest.

This roomy sitting area is situated under the sleeping loft, and thanks to a large corner window, it doesn't feel cramped at all, but well-lit and comfortable.

Tommy and Dewey Reen have been downsizing since they moved out of the colonial house they bought in Cape Cod when they got married eight years ago. They moved in and out of cottages and condos throughout the country, then finally built their dream home – a 288-square-foot, one-room house on wheels. Loft-less 160 sq. ft. tiny house for people who hate climbing The idea of downsizing for financial and emotional freedom appeals to many, but some may find some tiny house designs a bit too sappy, or the stuffy, low-clearance reality of a sleeping loft a bit too uncomfortable or even unsafe. So it's always interesting to see builders offer alternatives, like this small studio-style dwelling by Florida-based Tiny Home Builders that does away completely with the loft. © Tiny Home Builders The bed is tucked away under a raised platform instead.
