Next there’s a smaller version of the same thing.

64-square-foot Mini Microlodge House

This design comes with two single bunk beds but it can also be made to have a single double if you wanted. Although this one is just 8′ by 8′ by 8′ it still has enough room for…

  • Kitchenette area
  • Mini refrigerator
  • Electrical outlets
  • Glass front door

Next is Microlodge’s version of a gypsy wagon. Well- let’s just say it’s a cabin that’s wagon inspired.

Wild West Wagon from Microlodge UK

This model is based on the full sized Microlodge but it has 12 inches of extra width. Even though it looks like it uses the tarp as a roof it still has a shingle finish so you avoid leaks while still keeping the authentic look.

Then the company adds wagon wheels to make it look even more official. Again, this company normally builds these commercially so I don’t think it’s a working gypsy wagon.

Wee Microlodge Outhouse

This is really more than just an outhouse because of all the features inside which include:

  • Sink
  • Hot water
  • Lighting
  • Extraction fan

    Those are way cool. I think they would make great guest houses or camp houses.

    I always thought of Hobbit houses as being mostly underground. 🙂

    On my travels across Canada and the USA, I still find the odd reminisce of what we used to do, rent a cabin at the lake or some remote place of interest for one reason or the other. Generally a cluster of tar paper shacks the rain came through the roof, and walls, wind blew through the siding cracks and doors and windows and we had a ball. They were built mostly from local resources and as cheap as possible. You had better have liked sponge baths and outhouses in those days, no one did and everyone complained but years later, those very subjects are reflected on as the best time ever and hours of laughs are expelled from everyone. (of course everyone locked someone in a outhouse or was locked in one, hell that was initiation) The children of today’s era sit wide eyed enchanted with the stories of something they will never experience (but they too will have their memories). When I come here to the valley I pass one such cluster of tiny log buildings which played host to such style as I mentioned. I love seeing them, they have for sale signs on some, to be moved and every once in a while on less is there. Across the road and on side, excavation and development, progressing a little more on my every trip is the modern day version of these little cabins. It’s nice, very expensive; I suppose to meet the demand, every comfort possible. Just exactly what this post is about, and I think it is nice.

    A few years ago, a girlfriend and I furnished a house for a large family who were burned out without insurance using our discarded items. The father and I became friends and he repaid me by giving me a hand with some small projects, each time accumulating some more items that I was pleased to see leave and he to receive. One day I told him about this little shack and 3 of the kids were listening, I told him it would be a sleep on the floor, bbq in the living area and gravity shower deal but they were welcome to come down anytime they wanted. He said he might take me up on that. The kids immediately replied “really Dad” and he said ya, like the old days and he and I laughed. The kids couldn’t get it off their minds especially when I told them we could drive a nail in the wall and put up hammocks and have a fire pit in the bush yard. Kind of makes you wonder what we are missing. I would prefer those old shacks to these but they are nice. George’s kids won’t experience them until they make their own way but possibly could, in their romantic youth if the old shacks were around.

    Haha Ruth, the Hobbits were living in Hobbit houses long before you did 🙂

      Hobbits were living in Hobbit houses long before I did, but JackieRuth was the first person to name her very early J copy “The Hobbit House.” I was doing something before it even became a new movement in this Country which is actually what I like to refer to as an old movement rekindled with great interest as people have always lived in Tiny Houses. It was around 8 to 9 years ago when I was living in the Florida Keys and watching Ebay for cheap Ozark land that I scored five acres $9,000 below the price of five acres parcels sold by Realtor’s and it came with no zoning and no restrictions with a potential to have water and electric and was only a few miles from the river! I was so excited to have land where I could do whatever I wanted after spending twenty-eight years in the expensive Florida keys where you had to get a permit to even put up a fence and most often permits were denied. I towed an early Jay copy that was built on a boat trailer from the Florida Keys to my five acres and she was taken off of the boat trailer and put on concrete pilings and was named “The Hobbit House.” Back then people had never seen a Tiny house built on a boat trailer being pulled behind a truck by a woman by herself with two yellow labs and people swarmed like flies around her asking many questions while begging to peak inside at each stop that I made while towing her up to my five acres holding my breath as I went under each low clearance sign! Being a human interest story that I was doing/living at that time I became J’s 77th friend on Facebook, I had many people wanting to interview me. I wanted my privacy and was not interested in all of the hype however, people would sometimes hear from me as I through out ideas and sentences that I would see used later which only spiked my interest to watch this movement that I was living before it became a movement. I have very much enjoyed sitting back watching and sharing. I paid off my cheap land and went on doing even more! We all know who had the first “Hobbit House” in the tiny revolution and I am here to tell you that she will be put up for sale in the Spring if anyone is interested. She was a good place to retreat to and start off in and now, I have pioneered more on my land living freely and simply with no rent or mortgage payments only doing a little at a time while staying debt free! It was deliberate and the smartest thing I had ever done in my life! Oh, but it went beyond “The Hobbit House.” Haha! The little five acre parcel turned in to “Hobbit Village” on “Hobbit land” in our now, “Hobbit World,” of Course! 🙂 I like to refer to the Tiny house revolution as our Hobbit world since so many people have named their tiny houses, “The Hobbit House.”
