Just hitch your portable tiny house to your vehicle and tow it anywhere you want to go! It’s even registered as an RV, which has its pros and cons.

Of course, the major advantage to a “mobile” home like this is that you can travel and have a place to stay. However, because of its RV status, Darren Macca and partner Ann Holley had to make some concessions with appliances and the method by which the home was built.

RV appliances are more expensive than say, similarly-sized apartment-sized appliances, but without knowing if they would always have access to a power line, they had to forgo the less expensive route. You can see some of the highlights in the video below.

This is an inspiring story about an ordinary man who builds a tiny house for a homeless mother, Irene McGee, who’d been sleeping outside on the dirt.

It’s a micro house built with love for someone who was obviously in desperate need of a miracle. And this man was that miracle worker.

He decided he would build the micro house right on the street on a parking lot for her. In the video below you can enjoy and see how he built it. You can actually learn something about building from watching too! As to where and for how long they were able to keep it, I don’t know.

But the point of the video (below) is to inspire you to take action and do something like this too if you feel called to. The man, Elvis Summers, spent $500 to build it. He put wheels on it so they can move it every 72 hours to comply with local police. Either way please enjoy and if you like it re-share with your friends below. Thank you!

Now this is a tiny house that really makes full use of recycled materials! Jeff and Brad used their self-taught knowledge to build two of these in Portland, Oregon.

The exterior walls are made up of tomato sauce cans from a local pizza parlor. These make the houses fire retardant, which apparently makes the local insurance companies very happy!

The window flower boxes outside are made of recycled upside-down range hoods; the porch swing is an old converted Dairy Queen plastic chair. Inside, many features are from recycled materials, too.

This is a Downsizing and Tiny House Journey guest post by Mariah Coz and Jenn

Today we have an AWESOME guest post from a Tiny Transition + Downsizing Course student named Jennifer, who is having her tiny house built right now and is making tons of progress towards downsizing and getting excited to move in! In this post Jennifer explains why she was inspired to build a tiny home, the events that made her realize she couldn’t wait forever, and the hardest (and easiest) parts of her downsizing and tiny house journey.

In the Tiny Transition + Downsizing E-Course, the practical weekly lessons and private student-only forum allow you to make progress at your own pace within a group of like-minded friends on the same journey. I’ve been told that the group is a catalyst for lifelong change. That’s because we not only go through how to eliminate all sorts of crap from your life and space, but because we fundamentally change your relationship with “stuff”. It has the cascading effect of positively influencing every area of your life. When you join, you get 8 weeks of practical lessons and challenges (lifetime access), guided step by step help, lifetime access to the private class forum, accountability, support and motivation from me and your classmates, and the tools you need to simplify your home and life.

How You Can Start Your Tiny House Journey Too

This 400 sq. ft. Modern Prefab Cabin is called Studio37 and it’s a design by Small Modern Living.

Since it’s prefabricated most of the parts are built off site then delivered and assembled on site.

It’s a one level floor plan so if you don’t like sleeping lofts or staircases, this is a good design for you.

Inside the cabin you’ll see that there’s a living area, dining, kitchen, large bathroom, large closet, and bedroom that doubles as an office thanks to a murphy bed. Pretty cool, right?

This small home also offers a pretty nice front porch, too. Please enjoy this 400 sq. ft. cabin and re-share below. Thanks!
