Here’s a great example of how to fit a downstairs bedroom into a tiny house on wheels. The Modern Bohemian by Summit Tiny Homes leaves nothing out, including a large closet in the Master bedroom for clothing!

You walk into the kitchen complete with modern versions of retro appliances (full fridge, full oven and farmhouse sink!). Take a right to go through the bathroom with a tiled shower/tub combo to the main floor room. Above those is a storage loft accessible via ladder. If you go left you’ll end up in the living room which includes a storage staircase which takes you into another loft.

The whole thing has a lovely feel and great craftsmanship! Get a quote from Summit here.

When ADUs became legal in a small Central Kentucky town, Janet and her son/daughter-in-law saw a great opportunity! The son and daughter-in-law own the land and larger home, and Janet lives nearby with her grandkids in a backyard cottage. It’s 320 sq. ft. with no wheels and was built by a local traditional builder.

Minus the deck her son built later, the cost for the home came in at $60,000. She furnished it with compact IKEA furniture with hidden storage and has a garden shed as well.

While going totally DIY is great, sometimes a little structure and guidance can go a long way to creating the tiny house of your dreams. Right now, Summit Tiny Homes has a Christmas sale going on for their framing plans, and this Thistle 16′ model looks awesome.

For C$375 (usually C$500), you’ll get a cut list, materials list and 3D guides and instructions to get the entire framing of your build completed. If you want, they have a “mechanical” plans add-on, and a “finishing” plans add-on as well for sale. But the first part of the plans would get you a structurally-sound base for you to make your very own!

This week we got an email from a new tiny house/van conversion builder — Tiny Topanga based in Central Mexico and Southern California. The business started out as a side project, but they enjoyed building so much that they decided to keep going. Now they do van conversions and continue to build tiny homes on wheels and hope to spread the tiny lifestyle internationally!

Now their first build is for sale. It’s a beautiful 24×8 tiny house on wheels with 2 lofts. It has a steel frame and is ready to go off grid with clean and gray water tanks. What makes Tiny Topanga special are the handcrafted touches such as the talavera tile in the shower and kitchen, and the hand forged copper ceiling lamps.

Enjoy the photo tour below, or put in an offer here.
