Chris Page’s tiny house on wheels is based on the Minim design by Brian Levy, of Minim Homes. And thanks to Kai Rostcheck of I Love Tiny Houses, you’ll even get a video tour and interview with Chris (below).
Inside this cabin there’s about 11′ of width and about 22′ of length. Not bad for a tiny house on a trailer, right? I believe the extra width makes this tiny house technically a park model.
There’s a wonderful open kitchen with plenty of space, a dedicated couch with built-in storage, large windows throughout to bring in lots of natural light, and a pull out bed that stows away under the elevated office area of the house. And yes, there’s even a closet for your clothes. Pretty awesome tiny house design, right? I’d love to read your thoughts about it in the comments. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you.
This tiny LOFTY cottage is a guest post by Pamela Putnam
What a cozy romantic escape for couples! The LOFTY cottage near St. Ives Bay, Cornwall, United Kingdom, offers a relaxing luxury break in the peace and tranquility of the verdant West Country away from the hubbub of daily life.
Enter through the front door into the bright and open living /dining area, comfortably furnished for curling up with a good book by the fire, or enjoying a romantic dinner by candlelight.
The large ground-floor bedroom is furnished with a king-sized bed made up with luxurious linens. Open the doors off the bedroom leading into the private sunny garden to welcome the outside in. It is the perfect spot for some al fresco dining or simply a morning coffee with the papers.
You can add extras to enhance your self-catering holiday… everything from fresh picnics to afternoon teas, seasonal wine selections, beautiful fresh flowers, selective caterers and so much more.
Tiny homes often face challenges related to codes and zoning, but some are conventionally permitted and totally legal. Alex and Allison built their striking, modern 320-square foot home legally as an “accessory dwelling,” a type of small house that shares a lot with a larger, primary dwelling. But in their unique case, they bought an empty lot, applied for permits to build a primary and accessory home, and then built the accessory first.
They’re in the process of building a larger (but still modest) primary home, but meanwhile, they’ve been happily living full-time in their accessory dwelling in the quirky and cool small town of Yellow Springs, Ohio. Both share an interest in sustainable design, and in the ways that small housing can contribute to healthy, livable communities. Their drive to build small came partly so architectural designer Alex could design and build an entire, energy-efficient house. One interior plywood wall separates the public living area from private spaces like the bathroom, and the bedroom that’s lofted above it. Though it’s just “one big room,” the high ceilings make it feel much more spacious than its floor plan would suggest.
Who wouldn’t love spending some time in a quaint 768 Sq. Ft. seaside cottage on the beautiful coastline of Cape Breton Island in Canada? Eagle Pass is the perfect getaway spot for anyone looking for some peace and quiet with a view.
Situated on a 7-acre property, five minutes away from the Cabot Trail, Eagle Pass features 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, an eat-in kitchen and a gorgeous patio to lounge on. The cottage has a ton of natural light due to the many windows that it features and also has beautiful cathedral ceilings, which makes the space seem a lot larger than it actually is. The kitchen features a very cool looking corrugated metal wall which goes well with the exposed framing of the white walls and ceiling. The space is a mix of contemporary and traditional styles. All in all, it’s a great place to sit back, relax, BBQ and enjoy that beautiful view.
In 1975, Architect William Morgan wanted to build rental properties next to his Atlantic Beach, Florida home. He only had one problem when trying to decide about building the properties. He didn’t want to lose his beautiful ocean view. His solution? Use the existing sand dune on his property as the foundation and build the homes underground within the dune. From that thought became the beautifully designed Dune House.
Now famous, the William Morgan Dune House (which is actually two separate, identical units) is 750 square feet and includes one bedroom, one bathroom, an eat-in kitchen and a semi-enclosed patio with ocean view. The duplex was built using swimming pool technology, a gunite-concrete shell anchored to a cast-concrete floor, covered with a mantle of earth stabilized by native landscaping which helps maintain a 70-degree interior temperature. The beautiful interior features built-in furniture, mostly made of wood, curved walls and is almost identical to a stateroom aboard a ship. The property features breath-taking ocean views.
It’s every little girls/boys dream to have a majestic tree fort right in their backyard. For Lynn Knowlton, she made that dream a reality! Lynn, an Interior Designer, lives just outside of Toronto, Canada. She had always wanted a tree fort of her own and decided one day that she was going to make her wish a reality.
Lynn built the most amazing tree house on her property using 100% recycled materials. Even the wood that was used was taken from her friend’s barn that had been knocked down by a tornado. The windows came from various locations like an old church and old houses.
The tree house comes equipped with a gorgeous porch to relax on, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom and even a big red slide! It’s able to accommodate two adults, and get this….YOU can book it for a night or two if you wish! Lynn rents her beautiful fort out to anybody wishing for a tree house adventure! Talk about exciting! Bookings to stay in Lynn’s tree house can be made on her blog or on Trip Advisor.
