Remember tiny-house-extraordinaire Marsha? She’s built 8 (or 9?) different amazing tiny homes, and recently helped her 19-year-old grandson build a micro THOW to sell! Due to lots of unexpected happenings this fall (read the story below), Marsha finished up the building process on her own.
This little tiny home fits a bed and a kitchenette with creative over-tongue cabinet space. There’s a 10×10 sink, space for a portable stove top, and a lot of storage for such a micro home. It’s for sale for $13,750. Enjoy the photos!

Remember that tiny house my 19 year old grandson, Zachary, wanted to build? Well, it just got finished! As soon as we started about the end of September, crazy events took place which made the build take a lot longer than it should have. To start with, after the exterior was mostly finished, zach was given a promotion with raise at work and a change of hours which meant he was gone all day most days. His friend, who was able to help us at first, landed a job which took his days. Along with this, my youngest son crushed his foot at a hockey tournament and had to have major surgery and lots of daily care at first. He is just now able to start putting weight on it and rehabbing the foot a little, but gets around on his own again with a walker. My granddaughter had a beautiful baby boy (my first great grandbaby) which I got (and still get) to help hold in the afternoons most days.
In addition to all the “people” stuff happening, prices doubled from the time we estimated the cost and the time we stepped into the door to buy (my grandson was paying for all this), and there were also shortages in materials we had to have, so we went back to the drawing board to see what we could do to stay within budget, use what was available, and still have a solidly built tiny house.
We had sunshine and warm temps the first few weeks of building in October, but then the fall rains started which caused many delays. By this time I’m building alone and missing the camaraderie. It was fun working with my grandson and his friend. They’re really cool guys and hard workers. When the weather turned cold, I really missed them! Lol!
In spite of everything both good and bad, it got finished! Yah! It has a 10″ deep stainless steel sink, a stainless steel hose and sprayer, double glazed window, 1/4″ thick plexiglass insert in the screen door for cold weather which can be removed in nice weather to have a screen door, a portable single burner stove top, an electric oil circulating radiator heater, 8″ memory foam mattress (trimmed about 5″ shorter to fit the space), and a Hassock portable potty. There are 3 large laundry baskets under the bed for storage, and one smaller one under the kitchen counter for laundry. There are 4 USB charged lights, but there is an electric port plug under the counter to which a string of lights or a lamp could be plugged. It can take a 3 receptacle insert. You can also plug in the single burner and radiator heater there, too. The port plug is 14 gauge. There is fiberglass batting insulation throughout. There is a small shed area on the tongue for anyone wanting to switch to propane.
Thanks for your patience. I realize that tiny rustic campers like this are not “hot” right now and not glamorous, but for some of us, it’s all we need to be safe, happy, and comfortable, so I’m hoping the readers will enjoy it. Thanks for your tiny house talk site. It has always been a bright spot in my days. Take care and have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
