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.
