I have been part of the tiny house community since I first saw Jay Shafer on Oprah back in 2008.

We used that inspiration to begin building our tiny house in 2009. As you might imagine, since that time I have seen a lot of other tiny house blogs and become part of the small but growing community of tiny house builders.

There are so many great designs and ideas out there now and many tiny house builders are creating some amazing homes that are smaller than most traditional bedrooms. I thought I might share my favorite tiny houses – in no particular order.

Andrew Odom of Tiny r(E)volution and the r(E)vo Convo podcast has released an exciting tiny house ecourse that I wanted you to know about.

It’s a basics course on tiny houses that covers downsizing as well as construction. It’s a 30 day course with a new lesson delivered to you everyday.

This means you can go at your own pace and you can save certain parts for later when you’re more interested in them or more useful to your situation.

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to hear Andrew speak and share his experiences in person while we were at the RelaxShacks.com Wilmington, NC workshop together.

So I can comfortably tell you how valuable I think you’ll find being able to learn from Andrew’s experience as he designed and built his family’s humble home.

Guest Post by Andrew Odom

If you notice the photos do not show a bathroom built in this tiny house. The Odom’s tiny house is part of a larger idea that encompasses the addition of an ANNEX. The ANNEX will flow right from the initial tiny house trailer. There the permanent bathroom will be situated between two small bedrooms.

If you want to see the current bathroom facilities please visit facebook.com/tinyrev and refer to the photo album “The Shower Shack.” To find out more about the ANNEX search for the word ANNEX on www.tinyrevolution.us.

So much time is spent thinking about the exterior build of tiny houses – the trailer, the framework, the weight, the roof, etc – that the interior is often overlooked. But is that wise? Isn’t the interior what transforms an otherwise stark and impersonal trailer or foundation into a home? It is if you ask Stacey Pridgen of Rooms and Spaces and tiny places.

“The interior is what turns a trailer into a home. It is where a person lays their head at night and you want that person to feel like they are in a palace and not an outhouse,” says Pridgen.

A contractor, creator, builder, craftsman, artist, and innovator for over 25 years Pridgen has been putting hammer to nail since he was just 16 years old. “I started when I was 16 years old or so. I got a job with a construction outfit as a framing assistant. I spent a lot of time helping, lugging material, and trying to learn the trade.”
