This beautiful tiny house on wheels was built by Blaine of Cornerstone Tiny Homes in Oklahoma for he and his wife to live in. They enjoyed their tiny life, but now that they are adding to the family they are building a 765 square foot carriage house and selling their tiny home.

Blaine and his dad did residential remodel construction before setting out building tiny homes. They are now moving into SIP building with fiberglass sheathing that is extremely lightweight, durable, and efficient. His tiny house build allowed the couple to start their marriage with zero debt, which is quite the accomplishment!

They’re asking $79,000 for the house, which includes a loft bedroom and an additional Murphy bed that opens over the dinette for guests or downstairs sleeping. You can contact the company with questions/offers here.

This is the story of Michele’s Pawsitively Tiny House. Recently, she reached five years living in her tiny house, and has recently made some pretty big changes, which I’ll allow her to fill you in on… Enjoy! 🙂

This is year 5 living in my tiny, and I have had many changes in the last 6 months. After living in the country for 3 years, I decided to move back to the city, (Cleveland, Ohio) to be closer to family.

I thought I’d start a new series of posts called tiny house concerns.

In it we’ll go over questions and concerns that readers from Tiny House Talk have sent in.

Then in the comments, we’ll all discuss possible solutions and swap ideas. So here’s this week’s question from Pamela.

Hi Alex,

A couple of things I’ve never seen anyone address regarding the tiny houses on trailers is, what about the long term decomposing of the tires? Do folks jack the house up a bit to alleviate pressure on the tires, remove them, or do they pick the house up and take it to the local gas station now and then to fill them up? Also what happens if they leave the trailer to rest on the tires and one gets a flat or loses air? And finally, have you heard of anyone building a small house on a trailer with the intent of being able to remove it from the trailer once they get to a more permanent spot?

Thanks,

Pamela D.

Tracy and her family were ready for something different. Living in closer quarters in Santa Cruz during lockdowns was exhausting, but there was something magical about getting away to the mountains where her parents lived.

They’re now proud owners of a tiny house on wheels built by New Frontier Design. There’s a fun loft for their three kids, a big bathroom/closet area, and awesome lifted kitchen space for making family meals. They share their story below….

While lofts still aren’t the most popular choice among tiny home buyers, their ability to provide ample first-floor space to a living room, kitchen and bathroom still makes them a good option in shorter/smaller THOWs. You’ll see that in this beautifully-crafted tiny home for sale in Texas.

The NOAH-certified home is 26 feet long and you’ll find a hearty railing going up the storage staircase that leads to the main bedroom loft. Additionally, there’s plenty of room for a living room, galley kitchen and even a stacking washer and dryer unit.

While we see a lot of bright white farmhouse tiny houses these days, Lisa bucked the tide by choosing an ultra-cozy color palette for her MitchCraft Tiny House on Wheels! Moody dark wood tones, warm stone colors, and striking custom windows make this a tiny home you’ll want to admire again and again.

Yes, it has a first-floor bedroom complete with a sitting-to-standing desk space and lots of storage. There’s a kids’ loft bedroom that has a door to a balcony, just to make this build even cooler. The bathroom has yet more stone, a large shower, and a side-by-side washer and dryer. I think you’re going to love this one!

Alex and Becci are a lovely German couple who got in touch with us to show off their beautiful self-built THOW that sits on a farm in England. The couple built the tiny house in Munich, but when Alex got accepted to study Yacht Design in England, they moved.

While Alex works and studies, Becci works on the farm they call home. They have an adorable dog who loves hanging out on their couch by the wood-burning stove. Enjoy the photos of the construction process and finished build, and read their story below.

You’re going to love this tiny house from Baluchon in France. Built as a full-time residence for their client, David, it has everything from an oven to a nifty loft office so he can work from home.

The home can be heated by a mini wood stove, and the table moves around as needed. What’s your favorite part of this sleek build?
