People have been living tiny since they started building homes, which is just what you’ll find at Shash Dine’ EcoRetreat. Set on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona, the “glampground” features a number of tiny dwellings which represent the past and future of Navajo architecture.

On site you’ll find authentic “hogans,” which are round earthen homes that the Navajo lived in generations ago. Additionally there are a couple of bell tents, wagons (which Navajo lived in while caring for sheep), and even a cube home (meant to show the future possibilities for Navajo dwelling).

In authentic Navajo fashion, there is no running water or electricity at the EcoRetreat — you truly get to step into their world and share in the rich history of the Navajo people. Enjoy Jenna’s video tour of the glampground below.

Asha considers herself a nomadic faerie, and her van feels more like a seaside cottage than a home-on-wheels. The quaint cottage interior includes shiplap walls and ceilings, and powdery-blue cabinets with all her not-pretty appliances hidden behind cabinet doors.

She actually lives full-time in the city where she’s studying, which has it’s challenges in terms of finding parking, but the lifestyle is worth it for her to follow her dreams.

Enjoy the video tour she sent us, along with her letter about her van life and philosophy pasted below.

Dan’s very first project on his property was his “Mancave.” He never dreamed that someone would want to stay in it, but when a friend recommended he put it on Airbnb, it became a popular destination.

That’s when Dan started getting creative: He built a mini-village inside an airplane hangar, and then constructed a yurt, and then went on to build the TREEHOUSE yurt, which includes an elevator, hot tub and resident Alpacas for you to meet and greet.

He’s currently constructing Woodstock, where you can stay in a vintage VW bus and play music on his stage. You have to watch the interview with Tiny House Giant Journey to “meet” the wonderful Dan and his vacation world.

Skip and Dan found the perfect property on Vashon Island (which is only accessible via ferry!) to put the treehouse they’d been dreaming of. It looks out over the ocean and is tucked in a canopy of beautiful trees.

Because of its remote location, there’s an outhouse and outdoor shower and just enough electricity for a mini-fridge and charging small electronics, making it the perfect place to truly get away from it all.

Up a ladder is a luxurious queen bed that just might make you feel like a kid again. The huge garage door opens up on the first level to the wrap-around deck where you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee, or evening glass of wine. Enjoy the tour with Tiny House Giant Journey below, and book your stay over at Airbnb!

Ok, so we’ve all had a bad experience trying to put together IKEA furniture, BUT, it sure beats the effort of building your own furniture from scratch or spending a fortune on something fancy you can buy at a furniture store. Van Lab’s DIY kits are similar — you don’t have to go through all the trouble of a DIY van build, OR spend tons of money on a professional to do it for you.

The birch pieces come to you — pre-cut — with instructions. All you need are a couple of power drills to put it all together, and it could be done in about 3 hours (but let’s be honest, probably a full day with a bit of cursing trying to find the right piece). They even have an option that includes electrical wiring so you can have a luxury battery for charging phones and laptops.

Right now they have kits for three van models — the Nissan NV 200; Chevy City Express; and the Ford Transit LWB — but are working on additional kits for other popular vans. Take a look at the pictures below, and get details on their website here.

Maddie never wanted to fit in the box and do things the way others do them, but it was the pandemic that finally allowed her to chase her dream of living and travelling in her van. Her work finally went remote, and she hit the road.

Besides her medical coding job, Maddie also creates beautiful jewelry. She created an awesome table and benches that pull out from the garage where she can do her jewelry work. Inside she has a hidden cassette toilet, induction stove top and lots of room for all her clothes!

Enjoy the Tiny Home Tours interview below.
