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?

Get ready for a wild ride with this awesome family! Jake, Gianna and their daughter first set out with van life in 2018. When Gianna found out she was expecting again, they upgraded to a bus. But after three years on the road, the family ultimately decided to “settle down” again and purchased a home, build out buses and vans for work, and run a glamping business opening this fall!

I love their story because it shows how nomadic/tiny living can be for a season, and totally change the trajectory of your life for the better. They reached out to us and shared some Q&A answers about their time on the road, and you can enjoy the read after checking out pictures of their van and bus builds.

Wow! Check out this pirate ship in the trees!

This fun accommodation at Tanglewood Retreat in Waimauku, New Zealand was created from a 150 year old sailboat that was deemed un-seaworthy. Stace and her team took the boat, hoisted it into the trees, and transformed it with reclaimed materials into an epic getaway.

Up the spiral staircase you’ll find 129 square feet of pirate-themed fun, including a hidden rum compartment with a skull and crossbones. There’s a big seating area in the back, a cozy sleeping spot in the hull, and a skylight that gives you access to the deck.

Enjoy the amazing video tour from Living Big in a Tiny House below!

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!
