One of our awesome Tiny House Newsletter readers sent these Tiny Cabin photos to me.

It’s of a tiny house he found in the Catskills in Upstate New York.

14’x16′ Tiny Cabin in Upstate New York

The cabin has an upstairs sleeping loft that you can actually stand up in.

And it’s hooked up with a wood stove and propane. It was previously lived in but is now just used for storage.

workhaus-tiny-house-design-2

I’ve always wanted to draw out my own tiny house plans.

One of them has always been one for a person like me who works from home.

Whether you’re an author, writer, blogger, artist, cartoonist, musician, freelancer, or accountant…

Wouldn’t a backyard tiny house to work in be awesome? I think so.

The WorkHaus Tiny House

So I decided to create the WorkHaus Tiny House Design. It’s a simple 7’x11′ structure used to work in.

It can be built on a regular foundation as a shed in a backyard or it’s small enough to be built on a 10 ft. single axle utility trailer much like the XS House from Tumbleweed (aff).

Ever wonder about having a tiny house in the winter?


Our friends Chris and Malissa at Tiny Tack House just posted the video you’re about to see.

It’s of their tiny home on wheels while it’s snowing.

Video: Tiny Home in the Snow

Just because a little house is on a trailer doesn’t mean it can’t handle rough weather. Look at the solar panels filled with snow below. 🙂

tiny-house-on-wheels-by-oregon-cottage-company-07

The Oregon Cottage Company built this beautiful tiny house on wheels for a client with great ideas.

The based it on their Siskiyou design but they changed the following to meet the client’s needs better:

  • removed the porch,
  • added a utility room,
  • created a front deck,
  • and made the sleeping loft bigger.

I’d like to call this a great tiny house for full-time living!

240-sf-micro-apartment-nyc-04

I’m so excited to show you this micro apartment in NYC that was photographed by David Engelhardt for Dwell Magazine.

Living in a place like NYC forces you to make the most of the space you have. That’s why the city is filled with so many fascinating small spaces, like this one.

Micro Apartment in NYC

How much can you fit into 240 square feet? This apartment/studio will give you a great idea of what might be possible in just about any small living space.

This masterfully designed space was designed and created by Brooklyn architect Tim Seggerman with inspiration from furniture designer George Nakashima.

The entire apartment is a master class in finish carpentry: There are cabinets of cypress and bamboo; a gently chamfered ash-and-beech staircase; flooring of quartered white oak; a desk of red birch slats that slips out into the living space. The lighting in the loft, much of it recessed behind panels of papyrus, lends the space a subtlety that doubles the sense of warmth. “It’s basically a piece of woodwork,” says Seggerman. “I’m very proud of that.” (Source)
