Meet Jay Blackmore (@floatinthekoots) and his incredible DIY Off-Grid Floating Home that he spent four years building in his “spare” time.

Not only did he build it, but he also designed the entire thing and did all the work except the electrical and gas hookups (probably wise!). The home is about 700 square feet and includes an open concept living room and kitchen, and a second floor with two bedrooms. The home is heated in the freezing Canada winters by his pellet stove (or a back-up propane heater) and even some gas lamps!

Make sure to watch the video from Exploring Alternatives to hear Jay explain his incredible closed-loop system for his gray water!

This is a tiny floating chapel cottage near Sarasota, Florida. It’s right on the Manatee River out of Palmetto, Florida which is just north of Sarasota and is available to book via Glamping Hub.

Seems like it would be a really fun and one-of-a-kind place to stay. Not exactly tiny, but can still fit snuggly right into the small category. I sure wouldn’t mind getting to go see it in person someday! How about you?

This is the story of a trash barge turned into a floating tiny home with Derek Diedricksen of the RelaxShacksDOTcom YouTube Channel!

It’s definitely a one-of-a-kind tiny home with all of the necessary amenities, including an ultra-tiny bathroom with flush toilet and shower. One of my favorite parts about it, is the way the entryway is setup. It’s so funky, it just makes me smile. See for yourself below and let us know what you think.

Handcrafted by co-owner, Bob. Bob’s background blends construction and welding fabrication and it meets beautifully together in the designs of our tiny homes. 👨‍🏭 🔨1
