Here’s a sleek and modern two-story foundation tiny home built by Robert Abasolo from the Robuilt YouTube channel and is now used as an Airbnb in California. The “Conejito” plans for the build came from the Small House Catalog and you can purchase them to build your own tiny house here.

This model is just 300 square feet and includes a balcony off the second-story bedroom, as well as a carport outdoors. There are lots of clean lines and a shed-style roof to keep things simple. Could you live here?

Here’s a lovely little spot in Eagleton, Australia that sits right on the water! You couldn’t ask for better views, honestly. The tiny house is bright white inside and all the windows let in tons of natural light.

There’s a loft bedroom, back bathroom and open concept living and kitchen area. The whole thing is well-equipped as a vacation cabin, and heated and cooled by a mini-split. What do you think?

Now here’s a cool chance to have a tiny house AND the land. This five-acre property in Maine would make the perfect beginner homestead, and it comes with a 2.5-acre buildable lot already cleared for a house — so you could bring your best friend!

The existing house has a studio-concept downstairs, a full bathroom, and then a grand loft bedroom with walking headroom. It’s exactly 400 square feet and the whole property is $199,500.

Here’s the Daisy Caravan, the third and final caravan conversion by Samantha, an interior designer, and home-renovator that turned to tiny living a couple of years ago.

Plenty of white paint, updated upholstery, and those finishing touches transformed this from a dated old camper into a gorgeous vintage trailer ready for vacation. What do you think?

Jazz Musician Bruce Dunlap narrowly escaped when his tiny home was caught up in a flash flood near Santa Fe. He climbed out the back window with the help of neighbors, but the home — built in 2010 — was carried away and ultimately crashed into a tree and debris.

He is looking for support on Go Fund Me as his vehicle was also totaled in the flood. You can see the pictures of the disaster below.

This is the fourth and final installment of Samantha and Herb’s fantastic caravan and bus conversions! Their beloved skoolie named Mr. Pemberton. The bus is their current home on wheels which is parked in Australia while they finish a European tour. Once they get back home Down Under, they’ll finish a lap around the continent.

They had to completely gut and overhaul the bus to bring it to its current glory. The sage green and white interior is absolutely dreamy, and it includes all the comforts of home (even a bathroom!). Enjoy Samantha’s story in her own words below!

Do you remember Hunter? Samantha and Herb’s amazing vintage caravan conversion? Well, after completing that build and before traveling in it full-time, Samantha and a friend converted two more vintage trailers! One of them is this beautiful orange-and-green “Clementine.”

The trailer was very dated in the beginning, with dark paneling and a 70s green stove. Now it’s bright and airy, with an updated layout that includes a little desk area. Enjoy the photos below!

Today, Samantha and Herb are showing off their 1973 Viscount Caravan conversion — a simple lockdown project that completely changed their lives! Samantha was an interior designer by trade and Herb was a retail manager. Together they renovated 13 homes, but the caravan transformation was the catalyst to get them into tiny living.

Samantha admits she wasn’t a fan after the first few nights she spent sleeping in Hunter, but with time, that changed. Before they knew it, the couple retired early so that they could travel to Australia in the caravan. Since then, they’ve renovated and sold two more caravans and are now in their DIY bus home! But let’s start by checking out their maiden project — a sleek vintage trailer renovation.
