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…

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. 🙂

The @tinyhomebigfarm is a 27-foot long tiny house on wheels with a unique floating staircase and a beautiful interior design that incorporates lots of local art and thrifted pieces. The tiny house is on Airbnb and it’s parked in a stunning setting on one of the oldest peach farms in Canada.  It’s set up as a pet-friendly mental health and wellness getaway and we can’t imagine a better place to reconnect with yourself and with nature.  Especially with the hammock, deck & beautiful garden, not to mention the peach orchard!

What if there was a low-cost way to build an eco-friendly, fire-proof, water-proof and insect-proof home? That you could do all yourself with readily-available materials like water, concrete and detergent? Meet DomeGaia! A company committed to sharing their AirCrete-buildling technology with the world.

This innovative AirCrete is created using cement, water and foam (made by combining detergent with compressed air). It can be made at home using some of the tools sold by DomeGaia, and the material can be shaped into just about any design.

The home pictured below is Hajjar Gibran’s dome home which started his AirCrete journey. As you can see, you can make an amazing structure from AirCrete. What do you think?

Britney traded three goats and a sheep to get the epic floating staircase made from old barnwood installed in her tiny home. She uses the THOW as a vacation rental on her family’s peach farm, which has been theirs since 1810!

It’s 27 feet long and 9 feet wide, and the frame was built by a secondary trade school. Inside you’ll find a white interior complimented by tons of vintage and thrifted items, including a funky mustard yellow couch! Outside there’s a private deck area with views of the orchard.

Danielle at Exploring Alternatives did a lovely video tour with Britney of the THOW, which you’ll want to check out below!
