If you are thinking about moving into a tiny house or any other type of small space like a studio you might want to consider a washer dryer combo unit. There are plenty of choices to pick from and different features that you’ll want to know about, so I’ll go over all of that with you here and you’ll have a pretty good understanding about what’s available after you’re done reading this post.

Washer Dryer Combo Units Save Precious Space in Tiny Houses

Load capacities range from 11 to 22 lbs. Some models do not even require a vent hook up for the dryer. And if you’re on a tight budget or just don’t have the space to spare I’ll also show you an interesting countertop alternative. Ready? Let’s go…

Tiny House with a Washer Dryer Combo Unit

Before we get started I wanted to show you an example of a tiny house for sale that I posted on which included a washer dryer combo unit with it. Here’s a shot of it installed in this tiny home’s kitchen.

Top 5 Washer Dryer Combo Units for Small Spaces

Which one would you pick for your tiny house or small space? I rented an apartment once that had an older version of the LG WM3987HW you’ll see here. Since the dryer does not use a vent it takes at least double the normal amount of time a vented dryer would. But you don’t have to take the time to move your clothes from the washer to the dryer so that’s nice. Most of these dryers are more environmentally friendly because they use less power to operate and although they are required to run longer during the drying period they also use significantly less water because of the front load design. But don’t worry, they do make some of the combo units that are vented so that drying your clothes can be faster. Just look out for ventless versus vented and know the difference. 🙂

Lee and Payam from Instead Tiny Homes built this off-grid tiny home for Lee’s family. It was a prototype for the off-grid homes they now sell, but it’s also Lee’s full-time residence. Lee, his wife Rebecca, and their son, Max, rent the property where their homestead sits from a friend.

The Scandinavian-inspired tiny house features a ground-floor bedroom separated by a full bathroom. Right now it’s Max’s nursery, but someday he may want the loft, and mom and dad will move into the bedroom. The galley kitchen has tons of counter space and full-sized appliances, and there’s a cozy living area and loft bedroom. What do you think?

JustBioFiber is a company that has found a solution to many of hemp’s shortcomings when it comes to building. While “hempcrete” alone can’t be loadbearing, the epoxy block centers give the hemp structural integrity. It also makes it easy to run electrical wires inside the blocks.

As you can imagine from the pictures, building with these hemp blocks is easy! And the results? Strong homes that retain heating or cooling because of their high R-values. The blocks are a mixture of hemp core (from the stalk of the plant) and lime. You can plaster the interior and exterior for a smooth finish. What do you think?

When you’re serious about fitness, finding room for your Peloton bike, weights and yoga equipment is a priority. Ashleigh and Elyse seamlessly incorporated their wellness areas into their 360 sq. ft. tiny house, adding a micro gym next to their bathroom.

The mid-century modern tiny house was inspired by A-frames and has a dramatic sloping roof, clean lines, and warm wooden accents throughout. They added privacy film to their large windows so people in their RV park could stop and stare without the couple feeling on display.

Why build a normal cabin when you could have one shaped like Noah’s Ark (on a “tiny” scale, of course). This unique tiny house has a living/kitchen area “below deck” and then a bedroom area on the second floor.

There’s a wrap-around deck where you can look out on the gorgeous Tennessee landscape with a pond and pasture. What a peaceful spot to stay!

This is a 1969 International short school bus that was converted into the Old School B&B in British Columbia, Canada. It’s built with materials that were salvaged locally and it’s decorated with fun thrifted vintage items to bring us back to the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s.

The bus has a roof built above it to protect it from the weather and to cover the outdoor bathroom/outhouse as well as the porch area.

Prefab homes have had a negative reputation in the past for being mass-produced and poorly made but  Hewing Haus is one of several amazing companies that are challenging this stereotype by building prefab homes with quality materials and attention to detail.

They have a series of small home designs ranging in size from 200 ftto 600 ft2 and we had the chance to tour the smallest model at their warehouse in Chilliwack, British Columbia.

These tiny homes are not built on trailers.  Instead, they can be transported on a regular transport truck and craned into place onto a variety of foundations, including helical piles.  They can be used as cabins, bunkies, retreats, rentals, accessory dwelling units, and laneway houses to name just a few options, and they can be set up almost anywhere (be sure to check out the video below to see a bunkie being installed on top of a cliff with a helicopter!).
