This is a Laneway House designed by Robert Johnson Architect in New Westminster, BC.

Because of zoning bylaws and site space, this modern house is only 501 sq. ft. The main floor consists of the living/dining/kitchen space and a bathroom (328 sq ft) and upstairs there’s a single bedroom and closet (173 sq ft.).

Enjoy the photo tour below and read what Robert Johnson says about this design at the end!

This is a quality custom tiny house on wheels built by two craftsmen (one with 3 years of tiny living experience) that’s now for sale. While one of the craftsmen, Corey (@coreydoesit on Instagram), intended to live in this home with his wife, the couple are now expecting a baby and decided to sell the THOW and have a little more space for their new addition.

The home is solar-ready, N.O.A.H.-certified, and never-been-lived-in. Be sure to check out the full video tour below! Get all the details/specs/price for the house here.

Just about three years ago we interviewed Brian and Alexis, the owners of the Juniper THOW they built with help from Backcountry Tiny Homes. The couple (and their dog) had just finished up the house at the time, but now they’ve been tiny-housing it for more than three years! We decided to get back in touch and see how tiny life has lived up to their expectations and changed their lives for the better.

While magazine-ready photos of THOWs are fun to look at, it’s great to see all of Brian and Alexis’ Instagram pictures (follow them @living_the_tiny_dream) showing what real life in a tiny house looks like. Because of choosing to live tiny, Brian has successfully paid off all his student loans (Congratulations!) and the couple pays less than $12 a quarter in electricity. That’s impressive!

Today, March 27, at 4 pm PST they’re going LIVE on Instagram to give a Tiny House tour, so be sure to tune in.

Check out their real-life pictures in the photo tour below, and then find our Q&A with the couple at the end of this post.

This is a story of Paul and Annett and their beautiful off-grid tiny home in Byron Bay, New South Wales. Below you’ll find video tours from Bryce of Living Big in a Tiny House to see for yourself how this couple is living completely off-grid and making the most out of life.

We’re so grateful for being able to live this lifestyle. Even after 2 years of living in our tiny, we sometimes still pinch ourselves.

One of the biggest questions we get here at Tiny House Talk is, “Where do I park it!?” Well, sister-brother duo Melissa and Jon Block of Tiny House Block transformed a run-down trailer park into California’s first legal tiny house village, where they not only welcome short and long term renters, but rent out land to existing tiny house owners. It’s located on the Pacific Crest Trail, in Mount Laguna, beautifully nestled in the trees.

Tiny House Block currently houses 17 tiny homes, each with its own unique theme (including the very popular 420 House, which is marijuana themed). If you’re looking to just try out the tiny life, you can stay for as little as one night and book via Airbnb. But if you’re interested in renting a tiny home long term, you can check out their price guide here and contact them for more details. You can even purchase one of the tiny homes from the village (prices vary).

Already have a tiny home? For $750 a month you get land, water, sewage and trash. Utilities typically come to another $50 per month.

Jen at Tiny House Giant Journey did a great interview and video tour with Melissa and Jon, so be sure to check that out below! We’ll be following up with tours of each of the Tiny House Block homes, so make sure to sign up for our tiny house newsletter so you don’t miss any.

Tracy is an amazing single mom who is supporting her two children, Jack and Anna, while working flexible hours (many from her tiny house). They live in a “Tiny Town” village in Durango, Colorado, where they’ve been now for three years.

Because of their THOW she’s able to keep her kids first and work around their needs and schedule, while still affording a beautiful home for them to live and grow in. Oh, and they also have two cats! Enjoy the video tour from Tiny Home Tours/YouTube below.
