The price is $49,000 and the home has a bedroom with a closet and king bed, a full bathroom, full kitchen, high ceilings, an entertainment center, storage cabinets, and a nice outdoor living space too.
Have you ever considered going with a park model tiny house like this? It’s still on wheels, but it’s on a much wider trailer so you get more space. The drawback is that you’ll need to hire professional movers whenever you want to move it. So what do you think, would you live tiny here? Why or why not?
Living Tiny in a 400 Sq. Ft. Park Model Tiny Home?
This is Steve’s 400 sq. ft. Cabin off Big Twin Lake in Winthrop, Washington that he built as a retirement home.
In order to build just fifty feet from the lakeside, Steve had to build “tiny” and so he has his cabin on a 20 ft. by 20 ft. slab. The self-contained space has a composting toilet and shower in the bathroom, pull down stairs to bed loft with window dormer, and handmade furniture that includes a futon bed.
Steve said it’s built with a log post structure and 6” walls covered with 1” styrofoam and stucco. His kitchen has an apartment size fridge and range and he enjoys a built-in indoor-outdoor sound system including a sub-woofer. Best of all? There’s a dock for relaxing or fishing!

This is the Fair House, a park model tiny house sold by Pratt Homes in Texas.
Although Pratt Homes can supply a number of floor plans, I really love this one. It’s great for one or two people and it has everything you need on the ground floor! Plus the spacious front deck is perfect for sipping lemonade.

This is a 400 sq. ft. Off-Grid New Mexico Cabin in Tierra Amarilla on 5.27 acres!
For the asking price ($44,900), I think this is quite a deal. Not only do you get your tiny house, you have some land so you’ll have a place to live happily ever after (as long as you don’t mind the off-grid life, of course!). Plus it’s pretty cute inside! It runs off solar and wind power and comes with fishing rights to water bodies just a short drive away.
Enjoy the pictures and get more information about the house and contact details on the last page!

This is a 400 sq. ft. two car garage that was designed to be converted into a backyard tiny cottage by designer Beth Dana.
Inside you’ll notice you have everything you need from a kitchenette to a sleeping loft and bathroom. This would make a great tiny cottage to live simply in full time but you can also use it as a guest house, mother-in-law suite, tiny house vacation rental or even a backyard office.
I love the barn doors that are in place of the garage doors which open up to the outside. Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!

This 400 sq. ft. Park Model Tiny House Journey is a guest post by Kat Valade – share yours!
I’ve been following tiny houses for a few years now. I just knew this was the best choice for me and I started saving money for it. I had planned on moving in with my brother last year so I could save the rest of what I needed.
A combination of unexpected circumstances came my way and before I knew it, I had my tiny house being built! I chose a company in Alabama to build my 400 sq.ft. house. It arrived in Colorado the 2nd of January 2015. I had not seen it except in pictures as they were building it. Oh my!
The house plan had a full bath, kitchen (including dishwasher), two bedroom with downstairs and a loft with stairs instead of a ladder. I’m 57 and have a dog so climbing a ladder up to sleep every night wasn’t an option.

One of our readers, Karen Rogers, submitted photos of her 400 sq. ft. garden cottage. Karen and her husband are collectors and grandparents who love displaying antiques and their grandson’s artwork around their home.
Let’s take a look inside this cozy little garden cottage. As you walk up the steps you enter a covered porch, which is perfect for afternoon tea time. Once inside, you are in the living room that has all kinds of collectibles around.
As you make your way through the living room you enter the spacious kitchen which features full size appliances. I bet there’s some great home cooking that goes on in here! The bathroom looks to be just beyond the kitchen.
Going back out of the kitchen you’ll see there is a small tucked away staircase off to the right side that looks to go up to a sleeping loft. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
