This is the story of a group of Westminster College students who built a tiny house on wheels as a dorm room and as an on-campus learning and living experience.

It’s great because some students get to try out tiny living while the college also uses the structure for academic purposes. Pretty cool, right? Enjoy and learn more below and let’s hope we can inspire more schools to do the same! Thanks!

I’m really excited to show you this man’s ‘road warrior’ tiny house that he built for only $9,174 because it reminds us of the real reasons to consider going tiny, which is to live life to the fullest.

His name is Josh, also known as, Artisan Josh (also @artisan_josh on Instagram), and he’s been living and traveling with his tiny house all year! His story also reminds us how we don’t need to spend so much money to build and live our dreams. I’m able to share this with you thanks to Jenna of Tiny House Giant Journey. Thanks, and enjoy!

Feeling patriotic today? You might want to plan a vacation in the American Dream Tiny THOW at Mt. Hood Tiny House Village in Portland.

Jenna from Tiny House Giant Journey took a video tour of this home that’s built over the wheel wells to allow some extra square footage in the rental. You can sleep on the futon sofa or in the loft, and there’s plenty of counter space for cooking inside.

Enjoy her tour below and head over here to book your stay.

We told you about Jenna of Tiny House Giant Journey and her DIY tiny house before, but that was nearly three years ago, and it’s always fun to do an update.

Jenna had been travelling the United States in her tiny home with her boyfriend, but after they parted ways (not because of tiny living!) in October of 2016, she’s settled down in the Mt. Hood Tiny House Village and still blogs about her personal travels, tiny living and other people’s tiny homes. You can follow her blog here.

Take a look at her amazing, custom home below and be sure to check out the Resources to see where else you can follow Jenna. Enjoy!

I’ve told you about Jenna and Guillaume of Tiny House Giant Journey before. Last time I got to share their new DIY tiny home with you thanks to Deek over at RelaxShacks.com.

Today I’m glad to tell you that they’re successfully on their way towards touring across the nation in their tiny house on wheels that they built themselves. And did I mention, they’re taking their 1- year-old Australian Shepherd with them? Yes! And the dog loves the loft and is able to climb up there with no problem.

Their 132 sq. ft. tiny house was built using Tumbleweed Cypress plans and a Tumbleweed Trailer which cost them between $25,000 and $30,000 in total to build. And they’re towing the house at a maximum of 50mph as they travel the United States and Canada. You can see their complete route and possibly meet up with them here.
