This is a tiny house built on a terrace of a condo in Italy.

It was built by an artist, Gabriella Farella, and her husband.

When you go inside, you’ll find a kitchenette, living area, art table, and beautiful tile work throughout.

Plus they’ve also created a wonderful covered outdoor space and you can tell that lots of reclaimed materials were used to build it. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

Close your eyes and imagine living on the beautiful coastline of Pescara, Italy. Hearing the waves, smelling the salt water day after day. Now imagine that the house that you’re living in is a tiny beach house perched up high on stilts above the sand. Sound like a dream? Think again!

The amazingly built Trabocco beach house designed by studio zero85, is a simple 4.5 meter space which doubles as a living room /bedroom combo and also comes equipped with a kitchen in the back of the beautifully laid out floor plan.   The inside of this beach house is beautifully designed however, the best feature of this tiny house is the exquisite timber wrap-around deck, which provides additional living and entertaining space.  Set up a patio table, chairs and umbrella and you’ve got yourself a perfect space to enjoy with your friends and family.

The ocean view alone is enough to sweep you away into a dreamland, but imagining yourself sitting on that perched deck with your favorite glass of vino (or other beverage) in your hand is enough to get you giddy with joy. We applaud studio zero85 for the stellar work they’ve done on this beautiful tiny beach home.

In 2013 the designers at R3Architetti in Turin, Italy were hired to help turn this shop into a beautiful tiny loft apartment for a young professional who wanted a simple living space.

The lower level of this tiny apartment is designed for living and working. It includes the kitchen which unfortunately we don’t get to see, a bathroom, and the first floor bedroom.

The upper level has another sleeping space as well as another study/work space and it overlooks the lower level. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you.

Erica had spent three weeks traveling a large swath of the country in her car, thinking she could never sell her house and do full-time vanlife. But when she was about to go back to another year of teaching, she realized how unhappy she was with her current situation!

So she went ahead and sold her house, bought her van and converted it into a great home for her and her two big pups. She did all the work herself, so she’s prepared to fix just about anything that goes wrong while she is traveling.

Stuart and Charlotte were no strangers to tiny house life when they bought an old military truck and decided to transform it into an off-roading home. They had already spent a couple of years living vanlife, but wanted a rig that could take them anywhere.

They spent much of the 2020 lockdown finishing their build and have been chasing good weather and beautiful sights ever since! Read their story and enjoy the photo tour below.

Wow! What a stunning spot! This renovated barn in Italy sits in a nature preserve in Brescia, Italy. The two-level barn has been turned into two studio-style apartments, each around 300 square feet.

Both include their own micro kitchen and spa-like bathroom, and sleeping for three between the fixed beds and futons. You simply cannot beat the views! What do you think?

This little stone cottage in Vermont is off-grid vacationing at its finest. You’ll have hot and cold running water, but no WiFi and not much cell service. The one-room cottage sits on a New England farm and you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of a Robert Frost poem.

There’s a bathroom with a shower and Separette toilet, a kitchen with a sink, cooler, and two-burner cooktop, and you can eat at the old wooden table or sit on the comfy couch.
