It just doesn’t get cuter than this!

After some students built the Periwinkle shell, Patti purchased the home and outfitted the inside in her own signature style. The walls are a beautiful turquoise blue, she has a loft bedroom, cozy living area (with an awesome green chair!), and a super-functional kitchen. Patti said she purchased probably 50% of her interior off Craigslist or similar listings, which just goes to show you that recycled can be adorable.

This might be one of my favorite tiny homes. Go Patti! Take her video house tour with Tiny r(E)volution below!

Doug built his own 8’x20′ Tumbleweed Cypress 20 Overlook tiny house on a trailer. He started building it almost 3 years ago and has been living in it while finishing it.

All while also keeping a job. But now he’s finished and has invited us to come to get the tour thanks to Deek. Doug used glass storm doors to create one of the world’s tiniest sunrooms at the entrance instead of the usual porch. With this design idea he’s been able to generate solar heat using the sunroom and what he does is simply open his front door to let some of the heat into the cabin for passive solar gain.

Doug doesn’t spend more than $104 per year to heat his tiny house and just $176 per year on energy total. That’s a total of just $14.66 per month on utilities!

I haven’t shared the news from Tumbleweed tiny houses with you yet.

They’ve recently released their new Cypress 20 tiny house design and plans.

Cypress 20 Tiny House

This model is much like the Fencl but this one’s 20′ long instead of 19′.

So it’s just a bit larger and designed differently inside. Let me show you.
