I thought you might also like this tiny Paris apartment that was renovated using CNC milled plywood.

The design was created by Coudamy Architects then the plywood was cut using CNC machines and then put together in the house. Pretty interesting, isn’t it?

Take a look at what the apartment looks like inside and then watch the entire video tour and interview with the dweller below.

Hidden down a private path filled with lush greenery and trees you will find this cute cottage in Sausalito, California.

Featured on Apartment Therapy and winner of the Teeny Tiny division in the Small Cool Contest, Beth made this small cottage picture-worthy as you will see below.

Imagine being just 20 minutes from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco in this cozy little cottage… Well, that’s home for Beth.

I think it’s such a gem. And she has decorated her cottage in a fun-artistic-bright way.

Beth says, “Being teeny-tiny is never about living small. It’s about making it work.”

As you tour through the cottage below you will see she has managed to bring so much to this small space.

I can not help but love the outdoor ‘Alice in Wonderland’ dining area which you can see below.

This timber frame straw bale tiny house is about 500 sq. ft. inside with two levels which makes it great for a small family, couple, or even a single person. A great choice if you want to go ‘simple’ and ‘small’ but want a little bit of room to grow.

Once you walk inside you can see the amazing handmade spiral staircase. You can tell there’s a really warm feeling inside. The floors are made from reclaimed wood, it feels spacious inside, and it has an artistic touch throughout (see below).

Just wanted to let you know that there are two upcoming open tiny houses near Orlando, FL in Winter Park.

You’ll get to tour two tiny homes… One is Elaine’s Tumbleweed build from a few years back and the other is called the Dorian and it’s a custom built micro house by Maximus Extreme.

They are both located in a tiny house friendly RV park in the Orlando, Florida area. I’m planning on going, how about you? Let me know in the comments below so we can all meet up.

It’s in Orlando, Florida this August 24th, 2014 at 3:00 PM. Can’t wait to see and meet you there if you decide to go.

I had to show you this creative and unique mobile tiny cottage with dormers and a front porch. Really impressive especially considering this is the man’s first attempt at a tiny house. I’d be proud!

I ran into this originally over at Reddit where the man’s son posts, “My dad’s first attempt at a tiny house, he’s pretty darn proud of it!”

So I wanted to share this creative tiny home on wheels with you here thinking it might inspire you and maybe even cause you to reconsider your future tiny/small house design? Who knows, right?

I really like the dormers and the front porch on this house. This man must be a pretty good carpenter because I see a lot of attention to detail which gives the home a lot of character, don’t you think?

Although not practical as a full time living space I thought you’d still enjoy seeing these B-and-BEE Stackable Micro Shelters because they’re interesting and can be useful in lots of different situations.

They were created by Belgian designers/supporters at Archilles Design, One Small Step, Compaan, and Labeur as a way for people to better enjoy festivals. But as soon as I saw them I thought how they can also be used as emergency shelters, napping pods, ‘glamping’, camping, and more.

And it’s all put together and stacked using a ‘honeycomb shelter’ design. They’re easy to set up and can be stacked four high with a staircase system added for upstairs access.

The founders of Allergutendinge architects, Matthias Prüger, Manuel Rauwolf and Ulrike Wetzel created this tiny house called Seelenkiste (which means the Soul Box or Spirit Shelter) as a meditation space. They designed and built it as a project while students at Bauhaus University in Germany.

It’s a very minimalist micro house that’s made to study, read, and meditate. It’s a place for self reflection. Wouldn’t this be great to have in your backyard or just about anywhere on your own property even if it was your full time living space? I hope you enjoy the tour of this micro home below.
