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. The houses are built on trailers since they are too small to be allowed as permanent structures according to most local code enforcement agencies. 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.

Tiny Egg House – The Exbury Egg Artist Stephen Turner seems to have been incubating a novel solution for eco-living. That idea has now hatched into a full-size tiny live/work space that floats. All egg jokes aside, this is an incredible work of craftsmanship and fine woodworking. The fact that it is sea worthy (well, at least river worthy) amazes me… but then again it’s built like a boat. “The Exbury Egg is a trans-disciplinary project drawing on art and architecture as well as technology and the sciences to transcend individual specialism and work toward a further engagement of my visual art practice with contemporary ecological thinking.I will seek to creatively map the inter-connection of life from the smallest invertebrates to the largest mammals and between fauna and changing flora during the course of four complete seasons. Stephen plans to spend a year aboard his tiny floating egg too.

Rich the Cabin Man's Extra Long Tiny House on Wheels Now here’s a tiny house on wheels that more folks might be open to. To me it’s like a breed between a Park Model and a Tiny House. Most park models are wider than 8’6″ so you need a special permit to tow it. But not this one. Rich Daniels built it at just 8′ wide so you can still tow it yourself. Images: Rich Daniels

Humble Homes A Rustic Tiny House Made From Reclaimed Materials Portland, Oregon is probably one of the most progressive cities with regard to the tiny house movement. Its home to Tiny House Hotel, great companies like PAD Tiny Houses, and also this eclectic tiny house that’s currently available for renting through AirBnB. The house looks to be about 12-by-18 foot, and whilst not stated on their AirBnB page, the usable square footage is probably in the range of 300 square feet when you include the loft. The house is a pet project of DIY enthusiasts, Jenny and Michael, who built the home from as many recycled and repurposed elements as possible. The exterior of the house is finished in a mixture of cedar shake shingles and feather edge siding.

Super modern South African tiny house is bright and green I have often complained that a lot of tiny houses, being modelled on larger houses that get the shrink-ray, are designed for cuteness instead of practicality, with their tiny lofts that peak in the middle. Perhaps instead of using a traditional house as a model, designers should be looking more at learning from more modern designs like Airstream trailers or boats. That's why the INDAWO / lifePOD is so interesting. Robert Merchel House For Cooks and Artists - Simple Solar Homesteading This tiny house on wheels is designed for a couple who likes to cook and do art.

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. 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.
