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. Related:  TH BuildersTrailer & Floor

The Cube Project 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 This little cabin is 8′ x 34′ so a total of about 272 square feet of space without including the loft living space.

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. 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.

And she realized, she must do it where she’s at. So here starts my journey, as a tiny house maker. We met at St. The first days we worked with our minds. We visited a lot of good spots to get some ideas and to see how the town already works with recycling and upcycling. Our first weekend was there in a get to know each other spirit. Next time we will start to build on the tiny tiny houses. And shortly, in Swedish, for the sake of the search engine. Varja
