Tiny House on a Trailer with Two Lofts and Big Porch This tiny house on a trailer is completely unique. The house is 24′ long and 8′ wide. The tallest point on it is 13’5″. And guess what? I had always wondered why this hadn’t been done and now I know that it has. This one has two sleeping lofts. It was listed for sale on Craigslist for $38,000 in the Santa Cruz, California area. There are so many possible uses for this house… Guest cabinRentalInstant addition What could you see yourself using it for? The deck is made out of redwood. The railings you see there are removable and the actual porch folds up. Below is what it looks like as you’re walking inside. Kitchen is towards your left and the full bathroom is on the right. Built in shelves you can use as an entertainment center with storage. Closer view of the kitchen shows you that it’s pretty much got everything you would need. In the picture below you can see the built in storage inside the wall to your right in the kitchen. Let’s go to the bathroom… Below are some close ups of the dormers.

What It Really Costs To Build A Tiny Home | Dream Home It amazes me all the claims you read about super cheap tiny house construction. Honestly, I feel these claims are misleading at best. To build any structure meant for extended residency, year round living, costs money. It’ll cost what you have planned and probably much more to settle into living in a small space. My plan parameters were simple. I saved all receipts from the build and have compiled a total cost based on reviewing them and calculating costs by categories in the building process. Building plans – $249 Ordered plans from Trailer (house foundation) – $4000 Bought new at best local price I could find for a flatbed trailer rated at 15000 pounds. Lumber – $5361.44 All lumber including structural lumber, cedar siding, finish lumber, plywood subfloor, plywood sheathing, house wrap, caulk/glue, t/g pine interior, hurricane straps, tar paper, aluminum flashing, some of the “million” screws and nails, built in cabinets shelves, drawers, and couch. Roof – $502.89

Four Lights Tiny House Company Radiant Floor Heat - A Review - MiniMotives I often get questions about my radiant floor heat and I realized I never reviewed it… So here we go! Was it ‘worth it’ – It certainly served its purpose as a learning project, I learned how to install and operate it, I have no regrets about adding the thermal mass in the floor (and the extra axle that came with accommodating that). For me this was a learning project and I have indeed learned! Now, Would I do it again? – Naw. I would not. The radiant heat is not the most efficient way to heat the tiny house. Frankly there are much cheaper ways to heat a tiny house. Now- Just because I am not a fan of the radiant floor doesn’t mean they don’t have merit. I guess in short I would not suggest trying to capture solar heat to heat your space unless you are on a true foundation, same with a hydro set-up. COOLING is another story and thermal mass has been SUPER helpful for that! Like this: Like Loading...

Camp Treehouse “Even the most modest of projects can become something beautiful. There is no such thing as too far gone. With hope and a hammer, I believe there is always a way.” - Tereasa Surratt Boy do those words ring true in today’s Wandawega post. It’s about the latest addition to David and Tereasa’s magical campsite: a modern, pitched roof treehouse- designed and built by a wonderful bunch of friends. (photo: Bob Coscarelli) The project all started with a big, old elm tree located right in the center of camp. (Photo: David Hernandez) Sadly, Tom passed away a year and a half later, and around that same time, the elm tree contracted Dutch Elm disease. Further investigation into the elm’s condition revealed that even though its branches were dying, its trunk was still very strong. Tereasa and David’s carpenter/furniture-maker friends started by sketching out plans. Tereasa said, “Everyone had a radically different idea, and everyone was thinking 100 times bigger and more elaborate than I was.

Luxury Lotus Tent: Yurt-Like Shelter Packs Into Duffle Bag Unless you’re the hardcore backpacking type, chances are you’ve had a camping experience in a squat, flimsy tent that left you wishing for the comfort of your bed and a shelter that’s at least tall enough to stand up in. Minimalist tents have their time and place, but sometimes you want a shelter that offers more room – maybe even enough room to hold a yoga class or host a dinner party. But it still has to be easy to transport and set up. If you think that’s asking for too much, check this out. Not only is the Lotus Belle big enough for the aforementioned activities, you can fit entire bedrooms inside, including queen-sized beds, rugs, dressers and whatever else you can dream up (although those items, of course, are going to affect the portability factor.) Yet the smaller 13-foot-wide version packs down into a single duffle bag, while the 16-foot size, which is 56% larger, takes up just two bags.
