I lived in this one for 7 months, then because I was making plans to work in AZ in a contract position, and would be going back and forth from AZ to NC so much, I sold that tiny house and bought a tiny bus.
It was green with a stained door. You can see it all below.
I bought a 14′ trailer, but because of poor construction, had to build a 10′ long house instead which meant really changing the plans, but now that I have it, I absolutely love it.
It is built mostly from scraps, bargains, and recycled materials including old 100 year old stable boards from which I pulled a gallon bucket full of old rusty nails.
The boards were used for the outside and inside of the home and add a very warm rustic feel against which I put a lot of white trim and furniture. There is a composting toilet.
I worked on the house for 2 years and I lived in it for 6 months and sold it so I could build one that I’d be able to pull with my car (The Nest Tiny House). I even built an off grid solar generator for some power, so now I sleep with a fan pulling in wonderful cool air through the windows. It’s great!
Hello Alex (and Tiny House Talk readers), I love hearing about other people’s tiny house adventures. For a long time I thought I was the only one interested in living simple.
I kept thinking, it’s so easy why don’t more people do it? I live full time in a 270 square foot log cabin (you can see it below). Twenty years ago my brother helped me build my off the grid tiny home.
I also have a tiny village of tiny buildings that I built myself, I call this village Karenville. Karenville has a church, glass house, store/cafe, hotel, house, barn, silo and other small buildings.

Kirsten is going to show you Jay Nelson’s micro house that he built on a customized bicycle. It’s 27 square feet in size and has everything a surfer needs. It even has a roof rack to store and move around your boards!
Jay’s micro vehicle/bicycle home is made out of plywood sheets covered in fiberglass. He even custom made every window that’s on it. This little custom made RV even has a kitchenette with a stove, sink and drain. He uses a manual water pump that’s hooked up to a jug, sort of like this one. There’s even storage underneath the floor to hold everything you’d have to take with you. It stands about 5 feet tall and is 8 feet long and 4 and a half feet wide.
A few days ago I received Derek Diedricksen’s latest edition of Humble Homes, Simple Shacks in the mail so I was pretty excited to be able to review it so you can see what it’s all about before you order it.
In this video I’ll give you a sneak peak of the book that way you can figure out whether it’s something you’d find useful or not.
It’s a really fun book with tons of ideas. Some very practical and others are straight up funky. Either way the book will certainly get you thinking.
