Natalie’s Tiny House on Wheels by Nanostead

Natalie Pollard now lives in her very own tiny house on wheels in Asheville, NC.


Her tiny house was designed and built with the help of the people at Nanostead.

Natalie runs her own store in Asheville dedicated to other villagers and sustainability enthusiasts. You can see her store and even shop in it online, too. It’s called For Villagers.

Today Natalie’s tiny house is beautifully situated in Asheville with it’s outdoor deck and wonderful interior. Please enjoy and re-share below.

“It is truly remarkable how little I actually need to be content. I’ve been testing the boundaries of this, and have found for myself, the more that I won and the more that I want, the more burdened I feel. The conscious choice to live with less, for myself, is akin to freedom,” says Natalie.

She also adds, “I can live in a very small home, with fewer possessions, and still be a highly responsible adult. In fact, I’d argue that it makes me more responsible to my community and society as a whole.”

    I love this place, from the darling cat to her warm and cozy furniture. When a house was moved from a neighboring property, we were given their very well-made back porch (USMC vet) with an identical roofline, and were trying to figure out how to close the big side. This is perfect. The soon-to-be occupant loves the light from the open side, but we do have to make it weatherproof, and this is a great solution. Thanks so much for sharing this delightful place. It looks like a real home.

      I agree,I like it as well.. there is something about a cat that seems to complete any house and make it cozy..As well as dogs..

  • Athena December 23, 2014, 2:37 pm

    I like this wee home; it’s proportions make it do-able for those of us who DON’T have chunks of money and/or many helpful bodies to throw at the building of our own home. Thanks!

    Strangely, this house made me feel claustrophobic… and I’m only looking at the pics. While living tiny is good, feeling all cramped up isn’t. And that is exactly the feeling I got, that I’d bump into things all the time. My 2c worth.

    Looking at these photos, I can say that Natalie is a “Kindred Spirit.” I wanted to come over with freshly baked shortbread and share a cuppa with her, meanwhile petting her sweet cat. >^..^<

    This house is adorable; sorry, Paul, that it gave you a case of the Heeby-Jeebies. Now you know how I feel in viewing so many of these tiny homes! Could I live here? Nah. But, I do admire all the creature comforts that she's included to truly make this a HOME and not a Squatter's Hut as I see so many of the tiny-tiny homes, personally.

    And, Heart Be Still….I get such a rush and a cozy-cozy feeling when I view Tiny Homes nestled in snow. ~sniff-sniff~ It reminds me of drawings that I have from my Grandfather, of the tiny cabin he grew up in on the Canadian border…surrounded and cocooned by snow banks.

    I've always been a huge fan and proponent of the Skillion Roof and it appears that more and more tiny homes are going away from the gabled roof design and embracing the Skillion. Yeah!!!!

    And Natalie, if you read these comments, you keep rockin' the vinyl, girl! Great collection that you've got there. 😀

      Skillion roof sounds so much better than shed roof. Thanks for the knowledge.

      • Cahow December 27, 2014, 6:25 pm

        Why, “Hello!”, aliceh! Long time no see; I’m glad to see you back on here. 😀

        Yes!, “Skillion” is ever so much better than the slightly pejorative or utilitarian description of “shed” or “lean t0”, which makes the roof sound….cheap. It’s not a term used often in America, but often used in the U.K. and Oz. When I was studying architecture, our wonderful “old school” professor made sure that we knew ALL the words applied to roofs so we’d A) sound smart, and B) not be STUPID, in regards to only knowing one term for an item that had many terms applied to it.

        Whether a home with one roof plane cost $2k or $200K, having a “skillion” roof on it sounds MUCH NICER than a “shed roof!”

        I’m hoping to see you more often, alice h, and I’m wishing you a wonderful New 2015 Year! 😀

    Nicely said Natalie. And what a beautiful home you’ve made for yourself. This is one of the most creative designs I’ve seen. I like the way the loft is situated. It allows for plenty of ceiling height above both areas of major activity and seems like it would make the loft itself feel like it goes on forever. It makes for a great little porch and entrance way. And most importantly, it allows your darling little tabby to keep a watchful eye on you from all angles. 😀

    @ Patricia Hunt-Neis:

    People create their tiny homes to meet their needs. Foremost among these is the huge amount of freedom living without a mortgage brings. I’d suspect a tiny house dweller has little time for lounging. They’re too busy engaging their community, or traveling, or using all that free time for personal or artistic development. Seems like a rich life without many regrets.

    But if lounging is your chief aspiration, maybe a tiny home isn’t for you.

  • alice h December 27, 2014, 1:24 pm

    I like the elegant proportions of this place and the generous use of windows.
    No suspicions here, I live tiny and I lounge about a great deal. “People create their tiny homes to meet their needs” is well said, if somewhat tarnished by the following whiff of moral superiority. There does seem to be a comfy seating area if a person is able to get up from all those cushions (my knees protest!), or you could sit in what looks like a pretty comfy chair, possibly a rocker. Easy enough to add or subtract furnishings to individual preference.

    I love, love, love the exterior look and the area that looks to be the living room. Ultra cozy. Keep up the OUTSTANDING work!!

  • Lisa February 18, 2015, 2:00 pm

    Where’s the loo?
    Love the place btw.

  • gale February 18, 2015, 6:04 pm

    Very very nice.

    I want a tiny house so badly! At moment I care for my parents who both have alzheimers. But I am also disabled and there is going to be a time and I pray not soon, when I will no longer be their caregiver. I will need a small house, tiny house, to live in. First I love having option og having one on wheels. Also, I need something I can afford, since on disability and I do not want a large place to care for. Having everything contained into a small well designed area is perfect. I wish with all my heart that I could build it myself to help with expenses, but not physically able. But have dreamed for months about this. Just a small place that is my own. Love reading about the designs and praying when I need my place, I will have help building it or can afford to have it built.

    sweet–looks really cozy in there!

    love Natalie Pollards, tiny house. The PAINT color is so serene, would love to know what it is? Love the rest of the house as well, all my colors that I love. I have a mudroom with Soft Chamois walls, Ben Moore, and a soft greyish/white bleached wood trim, ….to me was explained as Scandinavian design, …I feel like it has California feel to it too. Thanks for sharing your photos.
