Get ready to tour one of the most precious small homes I’ve ever seen. I’m taking notes for our own small home — the way that Lynne and JR use vintage pieces in such practical and stylish ways to create a completely unique cottage is truly inspirational!

About 5 years ago they chose to sell their big home and buy their dream property on Lake Ontario so they could be mortgage-free. As such, they had to buy small (850 square feet) and they had to purchase a fixer-upper. They tore this little cottage down to the studs and have been working on making it home ever since.

Be sure to read our Q&A with Lynne, and also watch her video tour of her home where she gives great tips on living small even when you love decorating and collecting!

This is a 1971 vintage Streamline Empress cottage in Bradenton, Florida with a pool, hot tub, slide, playground, and nearby beaches.

It’s available to book on Airbnb via Micah and Jana, and I think it would make a pretty amazing stay. In fact, I’m adding it to my wish list right now so I can stay here in the future. And while we’re on the topic, have you ever considered using an Airstream as a stationary tiny home, kind of like in this situation? Let us know your thoughts about that idea in the comments, please.

We showed you the Chapelle and Bibliotheque at Treehouse Utopia in Texas, but here’s the Carousel! Like the others, it was designed and built by the treehouse geniuses at Nelson Treehouse and features the same fantastic craftsmanship.

They intentionally created two levels, to make it feel like the natural rise and fall of a carousel. Inside you’ll find a perfect adults-only getaway, with sleeping for two in a bed with a headboard created from a French carousel piece! There’s also a vintage carousel horse that’s been turned into a light fixture.

The two decks give you stunning treetop views where you can enjoy a drink or a meal. Book your stay at the Carousel here.

It took a pandemic to make Julie’s dream of living tiny a reality, but now she and her four special needs rescue dogs live in her 2018 Gulfstream Vintage Cruiser, and her second redone vintage trailer that’s her yoga studio.

I love the idea of the second trailer, because it doesn’t need electricity or plumbing, but gives you room to really stretch and relax that’s missing in many littler tinies and RVs.

Enjoy the awesome video tour and interview with Julie done by Tiny Homes Tours below! Let us know what you think in the comments.
