This is Nathan Housberg’s ROBA Laundry Hamper Invention which is going live on Kickstarter October 1st. After being frustrated using the laundromats as a student at Brown University, he came up with the idea for a laundry hamper that you could zip up and just throw in the washer and it would keep all of your laundry together. You know how it can be in a laundromat sometimes, socks can disappear and things like that. Or they just fall on the dusty floor after you’ve just cleaned them.

Nathan quickly realized he wasn’t the only person getting irritated by all of this, so he came up with a solution and sewed up his first prototypes in his dorm room using his dad’s old sewing machine. He continued to refine it after various tests and the goal was, “I just wanted to pick up a bag and throw the whole thing in the dryer.” So if you’re a tiny houser, apartment dweller, van dweller, sailor, and you happen to use laundromats frequently, you may really like the ROBA… Is this something you think you would like to use?

This is the Hitch Hotel. It’s a tiny camper that loads right onto the hitch of your vehicle so it has no wheels and weighs just 240 lb.

Once you’re ready to set up camp it expands into a micro camper. The project is on Kickstarter so if you’re interested you can back the project and even be one of the first to get one for less than the future retail price.

Take a look and let us know what you think about it in the comments below. Thanks!

This is a Kickstarter for Tiny Home Helper, Inc. and Basecamp01, a mobile design and construction “studio” run by builder Rebekah who wants to help DIY tiny housers create the homes of their dreams.

Building your own home can be hard, even if it’s Tiny. You can do it all by yourself, or you can hire someone to do it for you. But what if you’re in the middle of that range and can’t afford help? That’s where Tiny Home Helper, Inc. comes in. Basecamp01 is the launch pad for a greater company vision.

Curious about her vision? Be sure to read all the details on her Kickstarter page, and consider donating! She is trying to outfit her 1988 boxtruck with space for her to live, work and help you build!

So this is fun! It’s a new collapsible chair, called the Ollie Chair, that’s perfect for tiny spaces.

The Ollie Chair, designed by RockPaperRobot, easily “unfurls” and then retracts by tugging a string — does it get easier? I really love the modern feel of the chair, and I could see them sitting behind a table in a tiny house. Pull out the table, unfurl the chairs, and eat, work or play.

You can support the Ollie Chair on Kickstarter, and get some early bird specials. Plus, you’ll see it in action, which is super fun!

This is Taylor & Steph’s Incredible 560 Sq. Ft. Earthship Home in the mountains of Santa Cruz, California.

The couple built their home out of recycled materials in a way that’s sustainable and good for the environment. They had no construction skills, lived off-grid for a long time and managed to do it with less than $10,000. They’ve even shared their journey and explained the concept of Earthship Homes via a photo book. So they started a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the funds for printing. Be sure to head over there, watch their inspirational video, and consider getting your own copy of “Nomadic Roots.” which is now available on Amazon (affiliate link).

This is a one-of-a-kind off-grid tiny house by Elevate Structure.

From the outside you’ll notice is resembles a treehouse, doesn’t it? Even more interesting, it’s literally a living house because of the live plant siding.

The base is just 40 sq. ft. which minimizes the impact this micro home has on the earth is sits on. This area can be used for rainwater storage or even as a drive through in a commercial setting. Pretty interesting, right?

The upper level is highly customizable and can range anywhere between 256 sq. ft. and 800 sq. ft. depending on what you need. Currently the company offers six different designs.
