Grant's Tarleton Grant McComb from Hillsboro, New Hampshire just finished building his own tiny house from Jay Shafer’s plans. He says, it turned out wonderful and I’ve been living in it for about 2 weeks now. I enjoyed building it so much that I’m going to build another one. The humanure toilet is working great. I’m using peat moss instead of sawdust and it seems to be working just fine. I have a 10 gallon water heater for the sink and the shower that works beautiful. It took me less than 3 months to build the tiny house. Thank you Grant McComb Download Tarleton Brochure - pdf file Click here to visit the Tumbleweed Web Site and learn more about Jay Shafer and his designs. Jay sells the Tarleton plans for $859 and if you are anxious to get them right away. Be Sociable, Share!

Clothesline Tiny Homes Hello everyone! happy happy holidays and to all a good night. :) I came across a really inspiring small house (not tiny… but still very small!) and wanted to share it with you all for inspiration… Nakai House by University of Colorado students – Tiny Living in Style Tiny Backyard Garden Cabin Photo credit The Natural Gardener Wouldn’t it be great to transform this backyard garden cabin into a tiny house with a micro kitchen, upstairs sleeping loft, living area and a bathroom? Do you think you could make all of that fit in there? I could see it working as long as everything is relatively small and some areas can also be multifunctional. It would make it a bit more challenging if you decide not to use an upstairs sleeping loft because then you have to come up with a solution for a bed downstairs with limited space. You can maybe use a murphy bed, pull out sofa, a futon or maybe even a bunk bed.

Passive Solar Design for Tiny Houses Many people are aware of the concept of passive solar design, but it’s such a big and potentially complex subject that it’s easy to get overwhelmed or lost in a few details that are only part of the whole picture. In this article, I’ll walk through some basic steps for applying passive heating and cooling principles to a tiny house design. As always, you’ll get the best results by doing as much research as possible and/or working with an architect or designer familiar with the principles of passive solar design (all architects should be, because passive solar principles can and should be incorporated into every building built!) Let’s define what we’re talking about: Passive solar building design involves using windows, walls, and floors to collect solar heat energy when it is needed (usually in winter) and reject it when it is not needed (usually in summer). Here are the basic steps to take when thinking about passive solar design: Know your location
