After going through a big breakup, Rebecca had to live with her sister in a room without windows for a time. She says that was good practice for tiny living and solidified her resolve to have her own tiny space someday. With the housing prices in New Zealand at well over $780K, she saved a lot of money, even though she spent $250K NZD (~$147K USD) on her home.

Her son has a lovely first-floor bedroom with plenty of space for his clothing and toys, while she has a loft bedroom adjacent to her separate loft office space where she can work from home. There’s a great U-shaped kitchen, a large living room, and lots of hidden storage spots! Enjoy the incredible tour below.

This is a 160-square-foot container home in Blue Ridge, Georgia that’s perfectly situated among the trees. One of the coolest features of the cabin is a giant rooftop deck that extends out from the edges of the container to act as a roof for the lower wrap-around deck. It’s down there that you’ll find a hot tub and rocking chairs with a view.

Inside the container, there’s a studio-style set-up with a queen-sized bed in the middle. A kitchenette on the left has a two-burner cooktop, mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. To the right of the bed, there’s a bathroom with a residential toilet and shower stall. What do you think of this shipping container cabin?

Kai’s dream of living in a cabin in the woods manifested itself in her building an incredible house truck inspired by the funky wooden marvels of the 60s and 70s. Her home is bursting with character, covered with cedar shingles, and took Kai five years to make it livable, and another five to get it to its current state.

The house has a big round window, a Dutch door, and a cozy loft bedroom with a porthole. Enjoy our interview with Kai below and check out her incredible home. You can follow along with her journey in “The Ugly Truckling” on Instagram!

Mati and Luli moved to New Zealand about 7 years ago and lived for a time with a woman in her treehouse. During that time, they discovered they needed far less than they originally thought and got the idea to build a tiny house! They built the entire thing from the trailer-up, and did it using reclaimed materials for around $18,000 USD.

We had the privilege of interviewing the couple, and you can read more of their story below and take a tour of their home first, and then their bus conversion. Enjoy!
