Ethan Waldman’s Q&A Podcast on Putting Your Tiny House on Airbnb


Have you ever considered putting your tiny house on Airbnb, but weren’t sure about the logistics such as insurance, location, and what guests are looking for? Ethan Waldman, who built his own tiny home in 2012 and lived in it for years before putting it on Airbnb, shares his experiences in his podcast episode here.

He had to move the tiny house to a new lot in order to start renting it out in May, but within a couple of days, he already had his first visitor! Check out the tiny house below and tune into the podcast to learn how you could do the same thing.

    Very nice place and a good way to make money, even a living renting THs.
    1 tech note, a whitewood 2×4 ladder with just 2 screws is not good enough. It needs gluing and a support block under it. Nice bringing the ladder rails high to help get from the loft to the ladder safely, should be copied.
    Using AirB+B though should only be a last resort as they take too much of the profits. Though some places it is needed for out of the way places, places where people want to be one could get renters from craigslist, facebook, etc and not pay the high fees.
    Another is just rent them by the week to yr as low enough cost where renting is very profitable now.
    My plan is floating mine at a downtown Tampa dock using craigslist, my postings by the week and maybe a whole village of cool TH boats renting to uni students, workers. By the wk cuts eviction costs, hassles though you have to pay tourist and sales taxes.
    Another is take over/buy/lease a derelict trailer park and fill it with 10 THs is a very nice income of $5k-$10k/month profit.
    And help save the planet while making good money renting at slightly below market rates. Everyone should move to a business that moves us to a better future can be nicely profitable too.
    Or you can work your butt off for the man. Think about it.
