This is a 3D virtual tour of the Aurora tiny house on wheels by Zero Squared that expands with its huge slide outs.

The home actually has a split floor plan, which I’ve never really seen before in a tiny home on a trailer.

If you’re interested, you can even book an in-person tour over at Zero Squared, if you are ever in the Calgary, Alberta, Canada area.

Lumbec is a tiny house builder in Gatineau, Quebec that I’m showing you here today. They’ve recently launched their new Tiny House Lumbec website along with a 3D rendition prototype of their tiny house on wheels.

You’ll also get to see a reclaimed tiny barn cabin that they built out of reclaimed materials a couple of years ago. It isn’t completely finished inside, but you can definitely see the tiny house living potential here.

According to their about page, they will be building out their new tiny house on wheels design over the next two months while sharing the process. Please enjoy and if you want to help spread the word about this builder re-share these Lumbec Tiny Houses below. Thank you!

This is a 10′ wide by 30′ long 300 sq. ft. tiny house design with additional space in the loft. One of my favorite features about it are that there’s a staircase (not a ladder) to the upstairs loft space.

And there’s enough room up there to have a king sized bed, too, which is great if you’re planning on sharing the space. Plus there’s an additional storage loft area behind the bed. This tiny house has plans for a total of 1400 watts of solar panels and a 150 gallon grey water collection system. More features include:

  • A combo washer/dryer under the staircase.
  • A wood burning stove.
  • A tankless water heater.

And much more. Take the entire 3D tour below. Please enjoy, leave your thoughts in the comments, and re-share if you feel called to. Thanks!

This 400 sq. ft. solar off-grid small house design was submitted as part of LaMar’s off grid tiny house design contest where you can win up to $500 for submitting your own design.

But this 16′ x 25′ small home is designed to be a spacious, space saving, creative tiny home that’s fun to live in and share with others if you wanted to.

There will be solar roof mounted hot water heater, a unique upstairs deck/balcony, large kitchen, solar panels, and so much more.

I just had to show you this tiny house design sent in by a reader.

It’s called the mobile wooden hut which is designed for four people to sleep in.

The purpose of this mobile micro cabin is to serve as a cabin for vacations and camping sites.

Right now the first ones are being built for a campground in Belgium.

In this post you’re going to learn how to design and build your own version of a tiny house to scale.

This is a great way to play around with different ideas you might have before you actually start spending lots of money building your home.

It allows you to work out kinks and try out different concepts after you’ve gathered ideas for your future tiny house before you ever buy any of your materials.

And one of our readers, Dan Paquette, is going to show you exactly how to do it step by step in the video below.

What you’ll need before you start:

  • 4 1/4 inch styrofoam sheets
  • Marker & pencil
  • Tape measurer

Last week I showed you the McG tiny house plans.

Today I’m showing you yet another option from Humble Homes.

This one is for those of you who like the idea of a sleeping loft with a ladder.

The BRV2 Tiny House

I like the BRV2 because it makes great use of space and separates living and sleeping.

I also really like the french doors near the kitchen and living area. Did I mention this tiny house design has 10 windows?

I’ve been having so much fun creating my own tiny house designs lately.

Last week I showed you my current apartment where I work/live. Before that, I created and shared the WorkHaus. Today I wanted to share a design idea I had for couples who might want to live tiny.

Think you can live in, work in, and share a small apartment?

That’s what I do with my 500-square-foot apartment that I’m showing you today.

Small Apartment Design for Live/Work

I took my apartment’s dimensions, design and layout and did my best to match it.

Then I made some slight improvements that I thought would make it better.
