A few months ago one of our wonderful readers, Jane, was kind enough to send me a copy of her new book.
It’s called Freedom through Frugality. She wrote and self-published the book and it’s available at her website Spirit of Life Publishing.
Recently she’s finished up a tiny house on a trailer project which you’ll get to see below.
The design is unique because it doesn’t have a traditional pitched roof. This feature helps it feel quite roomy inside.
The exterior siding is a stained texture 1-11. It’s lightweight, strong, simple and inexpensive.
Let’s go ahead and take the photo tour together below..
As you can see it’s even been outfitted with solar panels as well as propane for power.
Here’s a shot of their compact wood fireplace which is more than enough to keep the little home warm even in Vermont where the temperatures are currently in the teens.
Here’s a shot of the kitchen. Looks like they used an RV oven. Also notice the vertical storage throughout. The photos are great because you can see that they’re actually using the house.
The bedroom is great because it’s not really an upstairs sleeping loft like in most tiny houses. It resembles Shane and Carrie’s bedroom on their gooseneck trailer.
Here are two shots of the living area in action with the fold down table in use. Would love to read your thoughts on this house in the comments at the bottom.
Jane just sent in a bunch more photos for me to share with you which I’ve added below (updated 11/8/12).
As you can see it’s a wood burning fireplace called Newport by Dickinson. It works well enough to keep the house warm even on snowy days.
Below you can see how their custom built folding table works which has three different modes. The photo below shows it being used for maximum table space.
Below it is put away to conserve space when not in use.
And finally below you can see it opened half way.
One of the neatest things about this house is that there are custom built stairs with built in storage instead of a ladder to a loft. Check it out below:
The area below is located underneath the bed but it is accessed from outside the house. This is where the solar cart is stored when the house is on the go along with the battery bank for power.
Below is Jane’s favorite shot of the tiny house in the snow.
Below is a shot of Jane on her laptop in the living area of the house using the flip up table they built.
Propane powered instant hot water heater.
Plenty of storage for food underneath the custom built couch.
DC refrigerator shown below and obviously in use. 🙂
Below is a view of the bathroom which is a wet bath with a Nature’s Head composting toilet.
Below is a shot of the 45-gallon water container that’s placed underneath the sink alongside the fireplace.
