Sofia lives in her professionally built tiny house on wheels. But it turns out it wasn’t the first tiny house she tried to get—she had one started by a now-bankrupt business. Still, she didn’t let that get her down, and she found a new builder and has been in her home for just over a year.

She pays $600/month to rent the land she is on and has a solar system to keep her power going. Sofia has several seating options inside the house, including her couch, bar-height eating area, and cozy loft bedroom. Just wait until you see the gorgeous tiles she chose!

Oftentimes not only is building a tiny house illegal but so is building a small one. One way to get around it, is by building what’s called an Accessory Dwelling Unit, or an ADU for short, if eligible.

Then this ADU can be operated as a guest house, in-law suite, vacation home, Airbnb, or what-have-you. That’s what Bunch Design did in Los Angeles, California with this Highland Park 850-sq.-ft. small home. Check it out! What do you think of small homes around this size?

This is a car-free eco-village in Los Angeles, California. This post is thanks to Johnny Sanphillippo and Faircompanies.

The community is unique because it’s about 3 miles west of downtown Los Angeles and all residents are car-free (their main source of transportation are bicycles). Even better, the Los Angeles Ecovillage residents have created a bicycle shop, vegetable gardens, composting areas, clotheslines, fruit trees, micro-businesses, chickens, a food co-op, and more. We need more places like this, don’t we?
