Supreme Bunk Beds

One of our awesome readers sent this over to me. Thank you, Suzi! It’s an all in one bunk bed that serves you with…

  • Two beds
  • A desk
  • Storage Chest
  • Closet
  • Drawers

You can order the plans to build this baby yourself through Amazon. Very inexpensive pricing for the plans.

They include step by step instructions. And this is obviously perfect for…

Or just an extra bedroom in your regular house. Or a dorm… You get the idea!

Tons of storage and usage all packed into one area. Very space saving.

If you love it, you can order the plans here when you choose and I’ll be able to buy a coffee at General Dollar.

Kathy's Tiny House - Built and Designed by Dan Louche, her son

On Sunday I shared some photos with you from when I went up to visit Dan Louche and his family to check out the tiny house that he built for his mom.

Some of you may have already gotten a hold of the video because I uploaded it on Youtube a few days ago. But for those of you who still haven’t, this post is for you.

You can see what a great time we had with them and just how cool her house is. I found it unique compared to most of the other ones you’ve seen online, including Tumbleweed’s.

They chose original colors inside along with the layout. I think that the coolest part is the amount of counter space that she has to work with inside.

It’s very spacious. At one point there were 7 of us inside and we were comfortably eating, laughing, and having a great time.

Dan did a great job with the house and Kathy decorated it very nicely, as you’ll see in the tour. I’ll leave the rest to the video… Share your thoughts with us in the comments.

Again–a warm thanks to Dan and his family for being so awesome and welcoming while we were there.

You can learn more about the ins and outs of how this home was built over at his blog, Tiny House Project.

Last thing–his tiny house plans are on sale at a huge discount until he changes his mind and puts it back to normal. You can order whenever you choose and get a great value for your American dollars.

A while back, you met Theresa when she gave you a tour of her tiny house (or studio) in California.

As you may not know (yet) her true passion lies in shaking her booty.

But she wasn’t always living the simple life. At one point, like most of us, she had a house full of stuff and lots of furniture. Obviously all of that has changed.

Sort of like me, she simplified her life so that she can chase her passion instead of trading hours for dollars at a job she didn’t truly gain fulfillment from.

Recently she’s followed up with a couple new videos to share with you guys.

The first is on how to craft or do art in small spaces and the other is a follow up on getting rid of her stuff.

I’m sure you’ll enjoy both right here… Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Getting rid of your stuff with Theresa

Again if you haven’t watched the original tour of her studio just click here to watch. Thanks for sharing your life with us, Theresa!


Rob Scott dropped by our blog a few days ago and left a comment with a link. My jaw dropped when I clicked through and saw his truck studios made out of recycled materials.

I know you guys will love his work– It’s really one of a kind. The first thing I thought was: these are tiny houses built right into classic trucks! Before you leave, share your favorite thing about these trucks in the comments.

When you look at the beauty inside and out they’re in a class of their own. For sure the most beautiful truck houses I’ve seen.

Prepare to be amazed. I’m looking forward to seeing what Rob does next. I’ll leave you all with a few words from the builder himself.

* * *

Alex: So what inspired you to build these? Can you share some more of your story?

Rob: I always liked cubby houses and small spaces, more intimate and cozy.

So I wanted to bring the delight back into building and hated seeing those horrible prefab toxic boxes being used for granny flats in Australia.

They had aluminium sandwich panel walls, fluorescent lights, vinyl floor, aluminium windows, chip board kitchens and so on….

So I decided to make a non toxic romantic granny flat with as much natural timber and recycled material as possible.

As I was investigating portable bases, I found the costs were too high and that I could buy old trucks for half the price.

This way I could have my base and a way to move them all in one. And, they are more romantic to my eye. The first I built was on an old truck we already had sitting on our farm unused for many years.

When it was finished my daughter begged me to let her have it for a bedroom…..I relented….I’m building my fourth now and plan to start a trailer version very soon with a kitchen bathroom and loft for sleeping.

All our guests love them and some times I just go and sit in them as they are so lovely to be in…

I’m not sure what to do with them all. I have sold one and cried when the couple said they would take it, yes I get attached to them (truck 2 in the pics ).

Maybe there is a rental market? Or we need to start our own bed and breakfast. Anyway I’m looking forward to building more and better versions.

Regards, Rob.

Kathy's Tiny House

Yesterday I took a trip to go visit Dan Louche, meet his mom, his awesome family and their beautiful tiny house.

I want to send over a big thank you to all of them for making us feel like we were family, feeding us, laughing with us and showing us every nook and cranny in their home along with the stories behind it.

A special message to Rick: thank you for showing me how to cut grass the silent way (and achieve ripped abs while I’m at it)

Andrea came along and so did our pup Louie. We all had a blast and loved hanging out in the little house. Dan did an incredible job with the design, my pictures DO NOT do justice so be on the look out at Dan’s site for better high quality photos of the completely finished house.

Kathy's Tiny House

Thank you Kathy, we love it!

When I went inside, I was immediately greeted with this beautiful gift and message… Thank you so much Kathy!

This morning I was able to get an interview with Jay Shafer of Tumbleweed Houses for you guys.

I think you’ll discover a few things about him that you weren’t aware of before.

Forgive me for the low quality as it was my first time recording my own interview using Skype and Camtasia and I couldn’t figure out how to make my own face bigger (but that’s okay because you want to see/hear Jay, not me, haha).

But I know you’ll enjoy the interview regardless of quality. I had to split it into two parts because of Youtube’s 10 minute rule.

Be sure to watch part two because he’ll tell you about Tumbleweed’s latest upcoming designs which are really interesting and completely different than anything he has ever done.

When you’re done watching do me a favor and leave your thoughts in the comments. I want to hear what you think about his new tiny houses (which he’ll be revealing pictures of soon).

As always I’d appreciate you helping me spread the word by using the Facebook Like and Retweet buttons. Enjoy…

Here’s Part One:

And Part Two:

Spread the word…


To make Tiny House Talk better and more of a helpful/interesting resource, I’m planning video interviews with those who have built their own tiny houses or have gone through the struggles of getting rid of their stuff and moving into any form of a smaller, less normal space.

If this is you, and you’re excited about what you’ve done, let’s get together for a quick video chat so we can inspire others.

So since I didn’t have many updates for you guys this week, I’ll be giving you links to what else has been going on in the crazy world of tiny houses (plus my usual video):

See ya guys!
