This eye-shaped sleeping pod in Champagne, France is truly unlike any tiny home I’ve seen before. The geometric architecture allows for awesome mirror glass skylights that look up to the trees. Inside the pod sits the double bed and some surrounding shelving and ambient lighting.

There’s a porch off the pod and a few steps from the front door is a private bathhouse with an all-glass roof with more views of the trees. A nearby shared heated pool is there for guests (over 18) to enjoy. What do you think of this design?

It’s not often that a bus build is an upsize in housing, but that’s the case for Sam, a traveling artist who put away his backpack to create this gorgeous bus home for about $10K and a lot of reclaimed materials. Sam had spent 5 months hiking the Pacific Crest Trail when he decided it was time to have a home.

He funds his travels by creating art from reclaimed materials and other small bits others would simply throw away. Wire trees are his specialty. He has a Murphy bed, excellent closet space with custom doors, and a slide-out pantry inside the bus. What feature is your favorite?

You might remember Kenny’s awesome Dodge Dualie Home on Wheels we showed you back in 2020 when he won Simple Solar Homesteading’s “Off-Grid Houses on the Move” Contest. Well here’s a video tour nearly two years later showing Kenny living his best life on the road!

His entirely off-grid rig has an amazing closet that turns into his shower/bathroom, an awning and porch that fold up for travel, and tons of beautiful heirlooms from his grandmother and other family members that he incorporated into the design. What do you love the most? Oh, and he did it all for less than $11k!!

You know what they say about location, location, location. This modern vacation cottage designed by the famous Canadian architect, Brian MacKay-Lyons, has an idyllic seaside setting in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia with sheep and horses grazing in the nearby pastures. It both blends in and stands out among the weathered buildings nearby.

The two-floor cabin has an open-concept first floor with a kitchen, living area, and cozy wood-burning stove. Walk upstairs to the bedroom loft with grand cathedral ceilings featuring exposed beams. There’s a nice living space outside, as well. What do you think of this home?

This is a tiny house with history! Built sometime in the 1920s or 30s, this caravan/vardo has been in Doug’s family for generations. It’s very simple with a green canvas exterior, wooden frame, and old iron trailer, and in the right hands, it could be brought back to its former glory.

Doug is looking for someone who appreciates the history to purchase it, as illness keeps him from being able to care for it. It sure looks like an awesome piece of the past!

One of the biggest complaints with tiny homes is that people don’t want to crawl into a loft to go to bed. But, getting a bedroom on the ground floor usually means sacrificing space for the kitchen, living area, and bathroom. Not in this tiny house!

Angus tows tiny homes for a living and got inspired to get his own. He and his partner have created an amazing off-grid homestead with a tiny house that has a full kitchen and bathroom, along with a cozy living room loft and a bedroom loft with standing room. If you’re going to go with a loft, THIS is the one to have. What do you think of this build?

It’s always an exciting day when we have a new Baluchon build to show you. This lovely tiny house was built for Claire, a client who is starting a new chapter of her life and calls her home, “The Smell of Rain” in French — that idea of fresh waters falling on formerly parched ground. Beautiful, really!

Claire wanted a very traditional tiny house, with a gable roof and standard living-kitchen-bathroom layout underneath a sleeping loft. But like always, Baluchon elevates the ordinary with beautiful craftsmanship and a pop of color — the barn red roofing and interior cabinets contrast beautifully with the light natural wood tones. What’s your favorite part of this build?

There’s tiny. And then there’s tiny. Nici & Max are the proud owners of one of an itty bitty camper van that they’ve beautifully and creatively converted into a tiny house with everything they need. Believe it or not, it has two living room configurations, in addition to its bedroom set-up.

The couple loved going camping together, but were annoyed by all the time it took to set up their campsite — and sleeping on the ground was less than ideal. A van made camping accessible — and fun — for them. They’ve traveled throughout Europe and are really living the dream. What do you think?
