David and his wife worked on renovating the kitchen in this Kilifi round cottage so that his mother-in-law can live here in her retirement. The beautiful cottage has panoramic coastal views and plenty of outdoor space to enjoy. The name “Ula” is the Celtic word for “seashell.”

The cottage is about 40 feet in diameter and two floors. There are two bedrooms upstairs, and a tennis court and garden space outdoors. Enjoy the pictures he sent!

Dottie had spent 13 years living in New York City and working as a burlesque dancer, showgirl, personal trainer, and bartender. The pandemic put her out of work and eventually she left the city and moved back home. Her mom and stepdad have actually been living the RV life for a while, so it runs in her blood!

She ended up buying and fixing up her awesome van that even has space for her sewing machine and burlesque costumes in the garage! She has a cassette toilet, a Dometic fridge, an altar, and an outdoor shower. Enjoy the tour below.

A couple of weeks ago we showed you David’s awesome garage transformation in France, but that was far from his first tiny project. He built this awesome tiny house on wheels in Kenya, where he and his wife live while she was researching for a book on African myths.

His design is remarkable, with “two-floor” design that allows standing space in the loft as well as plenty of space on the ground level. Enjoy the photos below and read David’s story after the photo tour.

I don’t know that I’ve ever heard of a vanlife couple who spent as much time and forethought regarding making the move into a vehicle! They spent a full year plotting and planning and discussing all the things that could go wrong in order to prepare themselves. Now that they’ve been living tiny for over a year, they consider their van a “sanctuary” no matter where they go!

The result? An awesome van that perfectly suits their stealthy needs — Becky can take the van to work as a travel nurse and park at the hospital, and Drew works from the van (or a co-working space) as a digital nomad. Their bed design is a brilliant middle ground between “take it all apart” and permanent.

Repurposing things is such an important part of sustainability, and grain silos offer the perfect shell for creating a really unique space. These ranchers took this one and made it into a super bright and airy farmhouse stay in Hahira, Georgia.

There’s a living room with leather and cowhide seating, and a full kitchen you can enjoy. Head up the spiral staircase to the loft bedroom with a beautiful canopy bed. There’s a full bathroom on the first floor and an outdoor clawfoot tub where you can soak.

If you’ve watched any of the Tiny Home Tours videos we post here, you are probably familiar with Brad’s work. He is a regular videographer for their YouTube Channel, but that’s not all! He’s an amazing photographer and sells his prints and works some commercial gigs as well.

This isn’t his first rodeo with tiny living, but this latest rig has been his for a couple months. He formerly traveled the whole country looking for work and getting discovered. He made his rig super functional, with a spacious kitchen, hidden Nature’s Head toilet, and tons of amazing garage space for his RAD bike.

Spaceship? Dome? Yurt? Cabin? Whatever you want to call it, this newly-remodeled home is absolutely gorgeous! While it’s by no means tiny with three bedrooms, two baths, and a spacious living area/kitchen, the alternative design makes it worth looking at!

I love seeing what people do with circular spaces since they present a number of design challenges. For example, they went with a custom curved countertop in the kitchen to go with the flow of the home. What do you think?

Want to stay in the woods without the “rustic”? This beautiful greenhouse-style cabin has all the comforts of home, including a fancy chandelier, but the glass walls and clear roof will leave you feeling like you’re sleeping in nature.

There’s a hot tub, outdoor shower, indoor bathroom and a super cool hanging/swing bed! You’ll find a microwave, mini-fridge and coffee-maker, but breakfast is provided as a nice touch.

Melanie and her husband have been living tiny now for nearly a decade! First they decided to renovate an Aistream, which they happily lived in for four years before deciding they were ready for sticks and bricks. That’s when they found this adorable 1953 bungalow and turned the 800 square foot space into their home sweet home.

They’ve been there now for five years, slowly remodeling the place as they had the funds (no construction loans here, woot!). The couple got in touch with us and did a great Q&A, which you can read after the tour of their little home. What do you think?
