It’s always fun to see a tiny home built on a foundation, isn’t it? This one is 14×35, so approximately 490-sq.-ft., right? You could call it tiny or small, it’s up to you. But what do you think, do you like it?
We got a tip last week that Cook County, Minnesota is tiny house friendly, but I wanted to double-check before spreading a rumor.
I contacted Bill Lane, the Planning and Zoning Administrator for Cook County, and he straightened out the details and specifics for those of you interested in going tiny in Minnesota. It’s certainly not a free-for-all, but they are more receptive than many counties!
In short: You’ll need to build on a foundation (or remove the wheels) and comply with zoning and building regulations (and pay taxes!), but it can be done.
Take a look at some pictures of Grand Marais, named one of the coolest US small towns by CNN, and then read what Bill told us below!
Hale Kilo I’a is a unique twist on Hawaiian and modern architecture. Hale Kilo I’a is a collaborative project between H1 Construction & Fujita+Netski Architecture (together called H1+FN Design Collaborative). Playing with the idea of dual structures & the use of a creative wall, this project creates a private oasis right in the heart of Kailua. These humble structures work at creating a unique tension that is meant to always excite guests with shape, form, & color.

This is the story of Natalie Bogwalker’s tiny log cabin in Western North Carolina.
She and her friend Eric did most of the log cutting and hauling. Then one year later, she began building with the help of many friends. Today she operates Wild Abundance teaching online and onsite classes on self-sufficiency, tiny living, gardening, acquiring land, construction, and hide tanning. It’s wildly fascinating and you can learn more below!
This mom planned and built an amazing two-bedroom tiny house for her and her teen daughter. The two lived in it for three years before the single mom married her partner and they purchased a fixer-upper together.
Now, she’s selling the plans to her awesome home so others in situations like hers can enjoy it, too! She designed the space with two private bedroom lofts, complete with staircases, closets, and DOORS. Brilliant.
The galley kitchen and large bathroom also have plenty of room for a little family. You can purchase plans here.
