LaMar over at Simple Solar Homesteading has created these simple structures specifically designed for emergency shelter, homeless housing or off-grid living. He’s offering them for FREE which is super nice!

The Stealth 64 is an 8×8 off-grid cabin which is easy to put up and take down, while the Shepherd Wagon (6’8″ x 8′) would fit on a Lowe’s or Home Depot 5×8 trailer (or be build on skids/casters).

If you’re looking for a simple housing solution, this could be just the thing! Both of these are also useful as sheds, outdoor offices, hunting cabins, etc. Get your plans here!

In this post I’m showing you a one of a kind 765 sq. ft. cottage near the beach for sale that was built using plans from The Small House Catalog.

It has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom and sits on a 7,900 sq. ft. lot on the coast of Washington.

One of the bedrooms is downstairs and the other one is upstairs with some extra loft space too.

There’s a covered front porch and a sun deck in the back that faces a small garden with blueberries, flowers, asparagus, and more.

One of our readers (thanks Crystal!) showed me this jewelry armoire that doubles as a mirror. It’s designed to be mounted right onto the wall so it can save you lots of space.

I think it’s perfect in the bathroom of any small space. Whether it’s a tiny house, cottage, cabin, apartment, studio, or really just about any bathroom or bedroom…
